It's that time of year again. Finals week has arrived. Finals can be the most stressful and frustrating time for students. A time when students are forced to lock themselves in the library and study large amounts of information for a test that determines their grades. Here is my depiction of finals week.

1. You start the week completely motivated and ready to conquer the world.

2. The first couple hours you feel incredibly productive as if nothing can stand in your way.

3. You decide to take a Netflix break to reward your productivity.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F02%2F6359780234754954151593389521_200-1.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=327&h=bc26cd5c0ca91826213799411d5d5ccd8f3bb88eb19861ace69b14a4d123be2c&size=980x&c=1579550825 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F02%252F6359780234754954151593389521_200-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D327%26h%3Dbc26cd5c0ca91826213799411d5d5ccd8f3bb88eb19861ace69b14a4d123be2c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1579550825%22%7D" expand=1]

4. Then, you try to justify procrastinating even more.

5. You finally sit down to study and realize you don't remember anything from this semester.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F05%2F02%2F635978024818153388586108369_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=742&h=2dc3ea1f75e363eb787c0c75be09262dc2c77bc7774d1df54331e6f451583428&size=980x&c=4649220 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F05%252F02%252F635978024818153388586108369_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D742%26h%3D2dc3ea1f75e363eb787c0c75be09262dc2c77bc7774d1df54331e6f451583428%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4649220%22%7D" expand=1]

Student Life

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

1799
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.

3488
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.

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.
