Sorority Sleeping Porch...What Is It Really Like

When those who are not in a sorority think of a sleeping porch they think of orphanage style bunk beds with a bunch of girls staring at each other in their sleep… I know, creepy right? Even before getting the experience to sleep in one, I thought it was about to be that, but it's really not half bad. It is actually pretty great, and I only have a month of experience, so let me tell you about it.

Well if you’re like me, you prefer to dress like a four-year-old going down to porch, and in my case, I sleep with maybe ten girls in the same room because I am in the basement (which is a blessing). Oh yes, back to my attire, my nightgown is pretty great. Very soft cotton which makes it easier to snuggle in. I started off the first week in this bottom bunk thinking this was the smallest most awkward little space that I had to sleep in. Wow, did I think it was uncomfortable or what. I can't even keep track the amount of times I hit my head on the top of my bed and on the side getting in and out. But it just took some practice.

You best believe that I am writing this right now laying in my porch bed because there is no place better to do so. Cuddles, Squishy and Snuggles like the bed too! Yes, I am 19 (almost 20) and still sleep with three stuffed animals… it's chill! They are super great troopers considering it is a nightly activity of them falling off the bed. But hey, I never have. The “butt hut”, I think that is what my sisters call it, makes it feel as if no one in the world can disturb your sleep because you are in your own little room. I wouldn’t say others disturb my sleep, I think I may be the one that does.

To my ladies on the bottom porch,

I am very sorry for my random laughing attacks at all hours of the day. Usually, it is not all my fault; Kylie has some part in them usually! I will really try to stop but it’s really hard to most of the time. I will work on controlling that for all of you and your needed sleep.

Who am I joking? We are all in for the fun and games! It truly is like having a sleepover every night with some of your best friends. Thank goodness I am not that person that sounds like they are having a full on conversation in their sleep… that made for one funny night.

But, besides all the fun and games, I don’t think I have had any better of sleep than when I have been in my porch bed. I sleep into 11 in the morning, and I never did that before! How could you not when it is completely silent and dark? Trust me you just don’t ever want to get up! The temperature is so comfortable that you don’t need to worry about getting too cold or too warm.

So, to those of you that will never get the opportunity to sleep in the sleeping porch, I am very sorry! It is not like a dorm room, or a fraternity sleeping porch (I have no personal experience, I just couldn’t imagine that to be relaxing), or even a room to yourself! It is like a dark cave with a light breeze and the peaceful waves nearby. It is a great place to come nap, or fall asleep for the night and have the best night sleep!

So with that, it is time for me to go to bed, night night!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • 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.

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?

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.
