Studying abroad and traveling in general can be highly stressful. The stress is so high that often, you have no idea what to pack. While you can buy things in other countries, it is always in your best interest to bring these 10 necessities to ensure an amazing experience.

1. Clothes for every weather condition

Wherever you go, the weather is going to change like crazy. It's likely that you won't have all hot temperatures while you're abroad, or all cold ones.

2. Different shoes

Giphy

It's also incredibly important that you have a variety of different shoes. Shoes you can walk in are a must, but also bring shoes to go out in.

3. Medicine

Giphy

Being sick in general sucks, let alone when you're studying abroad. However, it is also important to have the medicine you are most familiar with handy. Not all medicine is sold everywhere in the world.

4. Accessories

Giphy

While you may not accessorize every time you go out, accessories of any kind are an absolute necessity for traveling. Bring necklaces, bracelets, bags, etc!

5. School supplies

Giphy

While you are in a whole new place, it is important to remember that you are still there for school. Also, even though you can definitely buy school supplies in any other country, it is most convenient to bring your own that you may have left over from the previous term. That way, you have it ready and don't have to worry about finding a store that sells everything you need.

6. Laptop

Giphy

This may seem like a no brainer, but you definitely need to bring your laptop. There's not much you can do without one for college these days.

7. Chargers

Giphy

Without your chargers, your phone and laptop are pointless. While you're abroad however, don't forget to buy the correct outlet adapters!

8. Water bottle

Giphy

Bring a reusable water bottle! Having to buy a new plastic water bottle every day is not worth it! Bring one from home! Trust me, you'll be thirsty.

9. Feminine products

Giphy

You absolutely DO NOT want to go away without having these handy. Periods start at the worst of times, so be sure to always be prepared, especially when studying abroad!

10. Deodorant

Giphy

Another obvious one, but an absolute necessity. Bring deodorant, perfume, literally any type of fragrance at all and I promise you, you will thank yourself.

Of course, this is only a short list. Definitely triple check your bag before you leave that you have EVERYTHING you need, or else you will regret it.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
