Things I'd Include In My Autobiography If I Ever Wrote One

Every podcast I listen to and the ideal situation I'd listen to them in

Listening to podcasts is by no means an outlandish hobby, and I'm definitely not the only one who listens to different ones based on the occasion, but if you gave me the date, time, and whether or not my bed is made, I could probably tell you what I'd be listening to. There's not really a deep reason for this besides the fact that I am a creature of habit and deviating from routine is one of my least favorite things ever, but there would be at least a few pages dedicated to my fondness for podcasts.

The people that I associate with every song on my sad playlist

I don't know if this is normal or not, but I could categorize just about every song on my sad playlist by the person that each song reminds me of and which stage of my life I was in when that song started to be significant to me. Half of the reason that I get tired of songs so quickly is because they remind me of people that I know and the meaning of the song changes for me when the person I associate with that song doesn't mean the same thing to me anymore. It's kind of a bummer, but it makes it that much more exciting when I find a song that has no connections to anyone, because it becomes one that never gets old.

A comprehensive ranking of every song by all of my favorite artists

My music taste has always been so broad that I never really had "favorite" artists until a few years ago. My favorite artists/groups of all time (at least for right now) are Harry Styles, The Lumineers, Taylor Swift, and Bon Iver. I have listened to all of their albums so many times that I could probably recognize any of the songs on them just based on the first 5 seconds. For some reason, I just feel like all of my favorite songs deserve a place in my autobiography, along with an explanation of why I ranked them where.

My bucket list (and how much of it I've completed)

I just feel like if I was famous enough to write a book about my life, there would have to be someone out there who would want to see my bucket list. And although I don't have an exhaustive list completely developed yet, by the time I finish my hypothetical autobiography, I will have one done. I think my bucket list would be in order from the least exciting to most exciting things. If I get to the bottom and face all of my fears, I would have to face the final boss- my crippling fear of growing old and living a mundane life.

I'm just kidding. You literally couldn't pay me enough to do that willingly (as a last resort? Yes. As a plan A-Z option? Not a chance!)

A note to my younger self

At the end of my book, I'd love to write a note to myself from a few years ago. She's obviously never read it, but I owe that girl so many apologies and explanations, and I feel like someone else could benefit from the things that I used to need to know.

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.

What you did sounds dumb to me

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.
