Thank you for making being your friend easy.

Thank You To My Low Maintenance Friend

At times, friendship can seem like more of a chore than what it's really worth. These types of friendships usually fade out and don't last a very long time. Occasionally, there are a few friends that even though you constantly have to be talking to in order to maintain a friendship, they still work. The best friends, however, are those that you don't have to work hard to keep. I'm talking about my low maintenance friend.

Thank you for being my easiest friendship, and my go-to girl. This friendship is one I can always count on. Whether I'm just calling you to come over and spend the night (when we both know I'll fall asleep after being there for an hour) or if I'm calling you for an impromptu visit, I genuinely appreciate our friendship. Our friendship isn't one where we talk every day or even every week for that matter. I can't help but laugh whenever people say, "Oh you still talk to her?"

We talk when we need each other, and the important thing is that we are always there when that time comes. We have never fought and that is because the friendship is so chill, that it just never seems necessary. The best part about our friendship is that we can so long without seeing each other or talking and when we finally do, it's like nothing has changed and we can still sit there and laugh for hours. Plus, let's be real our catch-up sessions are second to none.

It's not that our friendship is not sincere when we go so long without talking to or seeing one other. Life can get hectic. I think what makes our friendship so sincere is that we don't have to talk constantly or see each other a lot for that bond to still be there. You'll always be that friend that my mom asks if I've talked to in a while because she knows how we both are.

Because of how low maintenance our friendship is when I talk to you about other drama going on in my life you always help me keep it in perspective because you remind me how simple friendship should actually be. You still listen to me talk (complain), which I'm so grateful for. You make my life simpler.

Our friendship has been the one constant friendship throughout my entire life. I've never had to question it. You've always been someone that I could say absolutely anything to without a fear that it would be repeated. As teenage girls, that's a pretty cool friendship to have.

Thank you again for being the person I can always call. I know that nothing will ever change our friendship because of how long we have been friends. I am very lucky to be able to call you my friend.

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.
