Now that Hillary Clinton is a lock-in for the Democratic Party candidate, we have one of the most interesting elections I’ve ever seen on our hands. Granted, I’m only 20, so the number of elections I’ve been around for is few, and the select few I can actually remember are even smaller. That being said, I feel like I speak for quite a few Americans when I say that I feel stuck. Continue reading
When I was preparing to move in with five of my closest friends almost exactly one year ago, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. We’d made plans to move in together, just recently (and at the very last minute) found an amazing, cute lil’ house to rent just minutes from campus, and knew that we all wanted to pursue God together while living under the same roof… but that was about it. I’d lived with two of the five, but didn’t quite know how it would look living with those two and the other three all at the same time. Pack six very strong, very different personalities into one home, and the results are sure to be unpredictable. And they were – because I couldn’t have predicted learning and growing as much as I did within this past year at the Radshack (named after a misremembering of the name of Shadrach of the Bible, but it’s fine). And I definitely couldn’t have predicted just how amazing living with these five women would be. Continue reading
Lane Kiffin. Ed Orgeron. Steve Sarkisian. Clay Helton.
That’s the full list of head coaches the University of Southern California has had since just 2013. Continue reading
I hate politics. I really do. The anticipation of being able to vote in this upcoming election (my first presidential election as a voter) has me a little on edge, because I don’t really know where I stand on a lot of things. Sometimes I’m more conservative on issues, sometimes I’m more liberal, and sometimes I sit right on the fence and can’t even decide in which direction to swing my legs. But one issue I do pretty clearly have a stance on is that of the Planned Parenthood debacle that has everyone talking.
My life is stuck somewhere between overwhelmingly busy and insanely fun right now. I think the word for that particular “in between” is hectic. So, in summation of the post you are about to read – my life is very hectic right now, but in the best way possible. Continue reading
I had one of the most interesting (and incredibly odd) conversations this past Thursday – one I honestly couldn’t have made up even if I’d tried. And (not to brag) but my imagination can make quite a bit up, so that’s saying something. Continue reading
So, I think one of the main purposes of this blog is to reflect my life. I mean, I’m still figuring out the whole “purpose” part of the blog, and this is only my second post, so I assume that the still-figuring-it-out stage is an appropriate stage to be at in the blogging process. But, who knows, I’m new at this. That being said, I want to tell you all about my Friday night. (I know, you hear a college girl tell you she wants to talk about her Friday night and you immediately start cringing before all the details even come up. I promise, it’s not that kind of Friday night.)
I’ve realized that I have a lot of thoughts. And not just little, coherently-phrased, 140-character thoughts that can be easily expressed through a Twitter or Facebook post. No, I’m talking about those rambling, occasionally politically incorrect, keep-you-up-at-night-wondering-about-everything thoughts. Blogger thoughts. Continue reading
