The Light Will Not Die

75
Poetry on Odyssey: Lux in Tenebris
Self

when the world is covered in darkness

and death appears at every door

we shall not be afraid

for the light of the Lord

will always be there


come most holy light

shine upon us

illumine our hearts with your love

strike the shades of fear from our faces


even in the deepest parts of the universe

beyond what we can see in the night sky

shines the light of God in the faintest

twinkling of a star reflected in the glistening of

an eye


the light shines in the darkness

and though the light may be in the darkness

that was also made by the Creator

the darkness shall never overcome the light


may the light, the love of the Lord, shine upon our faces

and renew the face of the earth

that where we stand is no longer a hopeless abyss


but a peaceful sunlit, son-lit, love-lit beach

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!

Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
