A Typical College Day, As Explained By GIFs

There are lots of ups and downs (but mostly downs).

A Typical College Day, As Explained By GIFs

1. Waking up is almost never easy, especially when you have an 8:00am class.

Often times, you wake up a few minutes (and in some cases, hours) late.

2. Showering in the morning really requires a lot of work, but "society" tells you that you have to be "clean."

The shower is a great place to unleash your inner performer (and your tears when you remember that you haven't even started that ten-page essay).

3. Getting ready for class should really take you more time, but then you remember that school isn't a fashion show.

Everyone wears sweatpants anyway.

4. Breakfast almost always consists of muffins and coffee from that grab-and-go place on campus.

It takes a lot of dedication to eat a healthy and balanced breakfast every single day.

5. Class time involves taking notes, engaging in discussion, and falling asleep and zoning out.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F6361270219019262991971740217_giphy-6.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=1004&h=07b9a784c527abc4eb0c9806d6eee4bdbe90fc7d66a0217cf45cbd366c3cc9e2&size=980x&c=652627596 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F6361270219019262991971740217_giphy-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D1004%26h%3D07b9a784c527abc4eb0c9806d6eee4bdbe90fc7d66a0217cf45cbd366c3cc9e2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D652627596%22%7D" expand=1]

You only really need to pay attention towards the end of class, when your professor gives a quick recap of class then assigns the homework.


[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F636127023598851464-485399992_giphy-7.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=142&h=e1b8f91cb004cf93ea6e09eb6e680a9a7130d1a0a9539a1788678c32ab5e586d&size=980x&c=2236027919 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F636127023598851464-485399992_giphy-7.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D142%26h%3De1b8f91cb004cf93ea6e09eb6e680a9a7130d1a0a9539a1788678c32ab5e586d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2236027919%22%7D" expand=1]

If lunch isn't the highlight of your day, please reevaluate your life.

7. After lunch, you don't have anything to do, so you take this time to be responsible and do your homework.

8. Five minutes into study time, your friend sends you that "WYA?" text, and you start packing everything up.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F636127032293919221-1845544813_giphy-10.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=713&h=f5f570fbfb99e15bc8d04e05aa084a9efcf4337ec7fad864daf9376cbcc2218e&size=980x&c=4251742709 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F636127032293919221-1845544813_giphy-10.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D713%26h%3Df5f570fbfb99e15bc8d04e05aa084a9efcf4337ec7fad864daf9376cbcc2218e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4251742709%22%7D" expand=1]

Let's be real, though: your goal was never to do work. You've just been waiting for that text for these last five minutes.

9. The rest of your day just involves making irresponsible decisions.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F24%2F636128718916373403-1350692986_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=859&h=9e7ea00cde9cab05e5917201129e626f2d7b2ca46bc49fce3e7e576b187ad64c&size=980x&c=2289832217 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F24%252F636128718916373403-1350692986_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D859%26h%3D9e7ea00cde9cab05e5917201129e626f2d7b2ca46bc49fce3e7e576b187ad64c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2289832217%22%7D" expand=1]

It's virtually impossible to finish that ten-page paper while you're hanging out with your friends. Just let it go.

10. Time flies when you're with your friends, and sometimes you just randomly fall asleep instead of doing work.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F636127052737878138-2088741439_giphy-2.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=733&h=4d97d3366b15512702a7b197d02a23f6369e96d290255f5f423b1bdd2c18a108&size=980x&c=1259649380 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F636127052737878138-2088741439_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D733%26h%3D4d97d3366b15512702a7b197d02a23f6369e96d290255f5f423b1bdd2c18a108%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1259649380%22%7D" expand=1]

It's just past 1:00am and you wake up in your friend's room with a slice of pizza on your forehead.

11. These last few hours of the night are actual homework time.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F636127053449224352-1582776028_giphy-3.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=165&h=336f986460013c280cbaf9d2a200fb71e04c46e1cfc6c88386655278f3877c71&size=980x&c=1332465568 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F636127053449224352-1582776028_giphy-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D165%26h%3D336f986460013c280cbaf9d2a200fb71e04c46e1cfc6c88386655278f3877c71%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1332465568%22%7D" expand=1]

Well, you got four of the ten pages of that paper done, and it was only the rough draft anyway. That'll have to do. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices in order to get "enough" sleep.

12. At this point, the weight of your day is too heavy for your eyelids to handle.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F10%2F22%2F6361270539366097241970064697_giphy-4.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=19&h=559c33603220c54e41e98884fd71929eee1810599559943f2ae270a36d835f0d&size=980x&c=1366329050 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F10%252F22%252F6361270539366097241970064697_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D19%26h%3D559c33603220c54e41e98884fd71929eee1810599559943f2ae270a36d835f0d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1366329050%22%7D" expand=1]

You brush your teeth and hit the hay. After all, you have to be rested in order to make all those bad decisions tomorrow.

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?

An open letter to my father

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.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
