If you're like me, you may think that Sherlock is one the best TV series out to date. I have definitely watched each episode no less than 3 times and, SPOILER ALERT: I shrieked when Sherlock died. Second spoiler alert: I wept tears of joy when it was revealed Sherlock didn't actually die. But, I digress; while Sherlock really seems to be cut from his very own cloth most of the time, he often does things that has us all nodding in solidarity.

1. When you're supposed to be taking notes for class.... but the professor catches you doing everything but:

We all know how it progresses: you start off strong, taking diligent notes and promising yourself that this semester will be the semester of new study habits! But, that all changes, slowly.... at least, if you aren't on social media, you're thinking about that awesome nap you're going to take later, and suddenly you realize you've zoned out for 20 minutes.

2. When you got the best grade in the class and need to show your inferiors- oh, I mean, your peers- who is the true master: 

Giphy

That moment when the class average was a 71 and you got a 72, and suddenly, you're Einstein.

3. Having group members that you might not particularly want to have as group members: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

I consider myself really lucky, though, because in all the group projects I have had to do, my partners have been amazing. I've heard stories where this isn't necessarily the case.

4. Trying to act like you did the readings like a good student would, but really just trying not to blow your cover: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

I think this a lot more to do with prioritizing your time more so than whether you want to do the readings; sometimes, other assignments take precedence, and you have to choose the lesser of the two evils. Either way, it's still one hell of an awkward time when you're asked to tell your opinions, and you have nothing to offer.

5. When you're taking a midterm, and your brain can't focus on the topic at hand:

Giphy

media.giphy.com

I think the only thing worse than this is when you remember very vividly hearing the topic being talked about in lecture, but not remembering that one vital detail that would give you the answer to the question. For some reason, your brain decided it would be more worthwhile to remember the words to "Baby Shark" instead.

6. …. and so you stare at the board, the professor, the TAs, and outer space, waiting for Divine Intervention: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

I do this every. Single. Time. Look up at the ceiling tiles is also a very effective method for recalling answers, as if the ceiling will have it written in big huge letters.

7. ... and how you react when you manage to blow chunks on the midterm: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Right before this moment, you get that sinking feeling in your stomach, because you know that you probably got an extremely mediocre grade, or, by the grace of God, you did really well.

8. When it's 4 in the morning, and for some reason, you just cannot sleep: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

And the only reason this happens was because the night before this, you couldn't fall asleep till 4 in the morning either. It's such a vicious cycle.

9. When you just feel like staying in your pajamas all day, and people start to wonder if/when you'll ever put on normal clothes: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

And as soon as you get home, it's back into the pajamas.

10. How it feels when you try to be in a good mood after only 4 hours of sleep: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

It only gets worse when you drink too much caffeine; then, not only are you exhausted, but you can also feel your heart racing and energy pulsing through your veins. It's such a contradictory sensation.

11. The horrendous feeling you get when you don't know someone's name: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

One thing that you will learn in college is that there is a very specific and relatively small window of time you have when you ask someone to repeat their name for you; after that, you are relegated to a semester of dodging every scenario in which you'd have to use their name. It's even worse when they always call you by your name.

Moral of the story: always, always, always ask them to repeat their name if you aren't 100% sure.

12. When someone in the library next to you it being just a tad too loud for your liking: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Sometimes, you really just need complete silence, because let's face it: thinking can be really hard sometimes. Especially when your brain is the one being too distracted, and unfortunately, you really can't yell at yourself in the library.... that would definitely be a little strange.

13. When you (finally!) try to start writing your essay, but you just can't think of anything good: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

If they took a CT scan of your brain, they'd probably only see question marks floating around in there.

14. ...then you finally come up with one, only to hate it after you've started writing: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

So now, you've decided on a topic- good job! The only problem is now you have nowhere to go with it. Looks like it's back to #13.

15.Nevertheless, you continue on, even though you feel like Sisyphus and his eternal task: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

At this point, you take a very well-deserved stretch and snack break. After all, you just put the name and date on your essay.

16. But you got it turned in, and that's all that matters, right?

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Until you get it back, and you get that sinking feeling in your stomach again.

17. When group projects are approaching, and you look at your class best friend with this exact look to let them know you're claiming them: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Let's be honest: you really do care about their input.

(Honestly, I really think college projects work out so much better than high school group projects.)

18. When the professor moves on to the next topic, even though you don't understand what just happened in the last topic: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

"Could you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about the things?"

There's nothing more difficult than trying to ask to explain something you don't know when you aren't even entirely sure what it is that you don't know.

19. When you feel like you've already been in class 7 hours, but it's only been 12 minutes: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

True story: when I was taking a history class, I looked at the clock and it said it was 2:30. 15 minutes later, it said it was 2:30, and I was absolutely flabbergasted. Turns out, the clock was broken.

20. "Ugh, I have so much work to do!" But 8 minutes later, your friends ask you to hang out: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

It's like you just completely forgot everything you thought or said to yourself. I definitely found that friends are a good stress reliever, and sometimes that's what I need. In fact, sometimes I'll be in a better mood afterwards and I'll study better.

21. only THEN to realize afterwards how much cramming you're going to need to do afterwards:

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Like I said, you'll study better. And, now you will be forced to get it done.

22. When you realize that these truly are the best years of your life, and you wouldn't trade them for anything: 

Giphy

media.giphy.com

Honestly, I wouldn't trade being stressed over an essay for Adulthood anytime soon.

Sure, college is stressful, but you'll really have the best times of your life. And maybe you'll go find some friends to go watch Sherlock with really quick...

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

222
Amanda Hayes

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?

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

1976
An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

2552
Is God Reckless?


First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
