Christians Buy Chicken for God

It’s a greasy piece of fried chicken breast and a side of waffle fries. For some, it’s just a fattening meal from Chick-fil-a, but on August 1st, 2012,  people saw it as a ticket to heaven…or something. Thousands of people in the country went to Chick-fil-a to prove their faith in God, the bible, and traditional values. If you don’t know, the company is known for being focused on the family and they give their money towards anti-gay foundations. At first I thought the company started it themselves and they were giving away free food. Nope. People just decided...

Hypnosis for Weight Loss and Self-Improvement

Think you can’t lose weight? Bet you can with hypnosis. Advanced Hypnotherapist Mike Oglesbee says he’s had a 100% success rate with every client who’s come to him to slim down. How’s it done? Hypnosis is a bypassing of the conscious mind in order to make positive suggestions to the sub-conscious mind.  It puts you in a sleepy trance that feels like you’re floating on a cloud and allows the hypnotherapist to suggest changes you can make to better yourself. Hypnosis has been used for thousands of years. The Greeks used it for healing, and the Bible speaks about sleep...

Pity for Unfit Mothers

Every time I log onto Facebook, I see something about so-and-so getting pregnant. I’m only 20 years old and most of these people graduated around the same year I did. Pregnancy happens. I get that. Some people really are meant to be mothers and have children young. I’m not knocking any of that. If you’re a fit mother, have all the babies you want. All the power to you. It’s just that most of the pregnant girls around my age I see aren’t fit to be mothers. They barely have an education, job, or any stability. They just don’t...

Free the Trolls!

Trolling: The act of deliberately, cleverly, and secretly pissing people off, usually via the internet. As much as I hate to admit it, I spend a lot of time on the internet. Most of it is spent on Tumblr reblogging pictures of pug puppies, Glee, and cupcakes, or on Twitter flailing over Kris Allen’s new music with the friends I’ve made from all over the world in the past couple of years. Almost every day, I come across a troll. For anyone with a broad knowledge of internet slang, you’ll know what a troll is. It’s not those cute...

“The Hunger Games” Satisfies This Fan’s Appetite

Thursday night I sat in the theater for two hours waiting for the lights to dim and for The Hunger Games to finally begin. It had been a long wait after reading the trilogy almost a year ago and finally getting to see it on the big screen. I was nervous to say the least. What if they had taken one of my favorite books and turned it into crap? I was already unimpressed with the actor, Josh Hutcherson, that they had chosen for Peeta, and Liam Hemsworth looks nothing like the Gale I had imagined. The book takes...

Fame vs Art vs Security: Can You Have it All?

At the age of nine, I was nominated the next Rosie O’Donnell for my fourth-grade class superlatives. In the sixth grade, I made a gossip magazine on Microsoft Word about my classmates. When I got into middle school, I tested out the school paper and continued it every semester until I graduated high school. I can remember sitting at the lunch table with my best friend and planning the magazine we’d someday own. I Don’t Want Fame; I Just Want to Write It is all I have wanted since before I can remember: move out to Los Angeles, interview...
