Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

To The Students Feeling Sick and Stressed

Feeling sick is not fun, but Jesus is with you the whole way through.


It's that time of year again. You know, the time when everyone around you is getting sick? What a fun time...

Something I have learned while being a college student is getting sick is literally one of the worse things to ever happen to you, especially during a test week or finals week. Like your body doesn't want to do anything but rest, but you have 35 things to do by the end of the week.

About a couple of weeks ago, I woke up with the worst headache and my nose was running like a river. I thought "oh it's just a cold, it will be gone by tomorrow." Welp, the next day, woke up even worse than the day before. Great... So, I did the only thing I thought I could do, which was going to the doctor. I went to the doctor, and they told me I had a severe sinus infection.

Well, something I have learned about sinus infections over the days that I was sick is that there isn't really one correct way to treat a sinus infection. It's different for everyone. You kind of have to figure out what works for you and that might be different treatment for someone else.

However, even when you feel at your lowest or weakest moment, you are not alone in this. Even when I was sick, my friends and classmates still showed me so much kindness by bringing me soup/hot chocolate/medicine/etc. And by the time I started feeling better, some of my other friends started feeling sick too.

Satan will try to put up blocks in the road to tear us down, but Jesus reminds us of His kindness and the kindness of others, that we are not alone in this.

"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." - Matthew 11:28-30

Praying for each of you that reads this. Hope that you can fight whatever battle or obstacle is standing in front of you right now, and that you will remember you are not alone in this fight. Jesus came to save you and loves you. Remember His kindness and goodness even when the darkness seems to be around you.
