This house was forged on rock and stone.

It'll bend, but not break. It'll shake, but not fall.

It's hinges surged from steel and gold.

This house was forged on rock and stone.

This house was built from walls of iron.

Sealed shut from winds and rainstorm clouds.

No wave or sea could taint or drown this house with walls built up from iron.

This house was formed on silent prayers.

It's roof won't cave beneath selfish cares.

No pain, no loss, no heartache dares to stand against its silent prayers.

This house will never sink in sand.

The ground cannot break on its fruitful land.

Its floorboards will forever stand.

This house will never sink in sand.

This house was forged on rock and stone.

It'll bend, but not break. It'll shake, but not fall.

Its hinges surged from steel and gold.

This house was forged on rock and stone.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
