Your coworkers can be some of the best people or the worst people you'll probably ever meet. Nobody likes getting up for work, however it can be easier knowing you are going to be spending a decent amount of hours with some of the best people you know, people who are considered your friends. If you don't have work friends, what are you doing with your life? You need to reevaluate your life ASAP! Having work friends is one of the best things about the job. Work can be such a drag sometimes, especially on a slow day, but having friends at work can make the day go so much faster and be better. These are my top ten reasons of why your work friends are truly the best!

1. They can make you laugh and you engage in great conversations.

The conversations you have with your friends at work are truly the best. They range from how much this customer annoyed you, how stupid and annoying another customer is on the daily, what you're doing when you leave work to why your boyfriend is an idiot. The conversations at work never stop and as time goes on, they will just get weirder, I can promise you that.

2.You equally annoy and tease each other.

Everyone has those one or two people who annoy you so much and you annoy them back and that's just how your friendship works. But they also help you out, like in my case clean up gravy for me from under my register (hey what are friends for Katie? #therealMVP). Anyways, work would be pretty boring without these people and when they are not at work when you are, you begin to appreciate them more.

3. Thanks for being there when I mess up.

When you mess up with the job your work friends always got your back! It doesn't matter if it's because your draw is short and they go into the computer to find out why, make your coupons even or defend you to someone who hates you. No matter what, you work friends will always be there!

4. You actually look forward to work when you are scheduled to work with your friends.

When I check the schedule before going into work and I see I'm working with my friends I know it's going to be a good day. Work is better and goes faster when you get to spend it with some of your favorite people.

5. They surprise you with food or gifts that remind them of you.

It doesn't matter if it's your birthday, an accomplishment or whatever eventually one of your work buddies will surprise you with food or something that they saw that reminded them of you. And if you like food as much as me, you know it's like getting a Christmas gift, especially when you are starving and haven't gotten your break yet. Getting random gifts any day of the year that's not your birthday or Christmas shows they think of you, I don't know about anyone else, but that is something special.

6. You can talk about the coworkers or customers you guys aren't fond about together.

Nobody likes all their coworkers, it's strictly impossible too, but most of the time who you hate, your friends hate which makes hating them that much more fun. But when the coworker you hate complains about the job or that they can't do it, makes hating them even easier.

7. You could find your future boyfriend.

Not everyone is bond to find their future husband at their job but if you do, you'll be lucky to work with him everyday.

8. They bring out the inner 3 year old in you.

The people you can act like a child with at work are the best kind of people. It doesn't matter if it's you trying to get a toy truck from one end of the register to the other, playing with a balloon or playing with something your job sells, you will all act like children together and it will be fantastic.

9. You work friends actually make work fun.

Your work friends are the people who make work more fun and be able to stand it more.

10. The hate you have when your friend gets to go home before you.

Working with your friends makes working that much more better, but when your friends get to leave before you, you have a special kind of hate for them.

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?

What you did sounds dumb to me

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.
