Why Any And Every Aggie Should Attend Breakaway

He shows up every week, so we should, too.

"Well howdy!" Proclaims director of Breakaway, Timothy Ateek. Followed by a sea of "howdys" back and a unison whoop. Every Breakaway begins the same. But each experience is different, and you will certainly walk away different.

It's the spirit that can ne'er be told. The body of Christ at Texas A&M University.

For everyone who calls on the name of The Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13

There isn't a single soul on campus, both Blinn and A&M (there isn't a single soul in the whole world actually), who doesn't need Jesus. And the best thing about our Savior is there isn't a soul He doesn't want. No one is "unworthy" of walking through the doors of Reed Arena and experiencing the all-knowing and all-powerful creator of the universe.

He shows up every week, so we should too.

College is so hectic and fast-paced, it should be just as mandatory as a textbook to slow down and take time for your soul, especially with The One who created it. Every Tuesday night thousands of students gather at 9 pm in Reed to worship our sweet Jesus. To sing songs of His glory and learn more about Him as that same glory is revealed to us through a message delivered by TA. There is nothing more refreshing than the gospel.

Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

There is no person, no situation or sin that disqualifies you from the love of Christ. There isn't a single person who Breakaway isn't "right for." Atheist, agnostic, another religion, skeptical, too far gone, it doesn't matter. Jesus wants you to come to Him. Breakaway wants to help you take that first or next step to get you there.

For where two or more are gathered in my name, there I am with them. Matthew 18:20

Texas A&M is unique and special for a lot of reasons. No reason is more important or life-giving than the body of believers that gather to experience, share, spread, and glorify the name of Jesus Christ. Grades are important, but they will eventually come to an end. Your student organization is important, but it will eventually come to an end. Your relationship is important, but it's not going to fulfill every single desire of your being. Only Jesus can do that. So come to meet Him, come to meet with Him. Come to experience the purpose of life.

But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God. John 1:12

Life is busy, but for no matter how little of time, you sleep, either at night or an afternoon nap. Why? Because you literally cannot live without it. It's a priority. Jesus is no different. So come to spend time with Him. Learn to read His word, for no matter how little of time, in the afternoon, first thing in the morning, or late at night. It doesn't matter. But you literally cannot live without Him.

Taste and see that The Lord is good. Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8

Come taste and see. Come to experience His goodness. Walk into Reed Arena dead and leave alive as you claim the name of Christ. We want you there!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
