An episode burning with sin.

This season's bachelorette, Hannah Brown, brought four men into this weeks episode of fantasy suites. Normally, there are only three men who make it this far. So from the start, the "bachelorette nation" knew this episode would be something special. One of the remaining four being the infamous Luke Parker, also made this episode worth watching. I say infamous because Luke seemed to have problems with every other guy in the house, and had the other guys, along with the audience, questioning why Hannah still kept him around.

There is no doubt that the media played a part in making him the villain of this season through their promotions of the show; although, Luke didn't do himself any favors either. Throughout the season, he blatantly contradicted himself and took back what he said every time Hannah would get upset. My advice would be if you are going to say it, say it with conviction and don't be shaken no matter the cost. Even if the cost is a rose. Before I spend anymore time talking about Luke, I want to commend one of the other men fighting for Hannah's heart, Tyler Cameron. Tyler was beyond respectful of Hannah's wishes to spend their night together growing their emotional connection rather than physical.

Due to this episode being fantasy suites, sex was a hot topic. Luke confronts Hannah by saying "let's talk about sex" and discusses his views on sexual sin outside of marriage. He brings up reading Hebrews, which is great. Kutos to him. But researching it I mostly found things on adultery rather than premarital sex. Therefore, I believe 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5 explains it better when it says that God's will is for us to be holy and to not live in lustful passion.

As christians, we are called to be in community with one another and keep each other accountable to live life as an example of Christ. Galatians 6:1 tells us that the truth of the gospel should be shared in love. While Luke's statements were rooted in truth, they were brought about in an unloving way. He immediately took forgiveness off the table by saying that he wouldn't be able to look past Hannah having sex with the other men. This was prideful of him. I believe this is part of the reason Christians get a bad reputation because of the way they can come off as self-righteous.

Both sides were sinful. The important thing to remember is that we are called to love one another regardless of our flaws. No one is perfect. If we were, the cross would be pointless. Being a Christian doesn't mean being perfect, it means clinging to what is. At the end of the day, God is the ultimate judge and surrendering it all to him is what matters.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
