So my university had a ‘stress-free resort’ station set up today to help students combat the stress of finals week.
There was a coloring table
complete with Lion King coloring books
There was a lego table
also, free massages.
This is the most wonderful thing that ever happened in four years of college.
Our school should do this
Windows overlooking the sunset on a lake
Reese’s peanut butter cups
Well first, thank you for not being harsh. When I was young I went to church all the time and the Christian faith was thrust upon me. I tried to avoid going and it was a chore getting dressed up, especially when I got older and wanted to sleep in. I never really threw myself into it really. Then, as part of New York State education, I was required to learn about evolution and other theories of how we came to be on Earth. I was fascinated and eager to learn more. My dad always told me that “This is God’s way” and “It happened because God wanted it to.” I also learned about different cultures in my freshman year in high school. These different cultures had different
religions that were all so interesting. I have learned to respect them but I am an atheist today because I want to believe that no one is controlling my life. I felt like I was being bogged down by the Ten Commandments (like disobeying my parents constantly-oh come on, we all have) I always felt so guilty stepping out of line and that I was constantly being judged (yeah yeah, Jesus loves me no matter what.) But that’s just not the whole thing. You see, I’ve always had a creative imagination while being kind of factual at the same time. I want to believe in the possibility of life from another planet, if the theory is true and an asteroid did collide with the Earth so many years ago. Just looking at the theory of Evolution…..it’s extraordinary that life can change and adapt in new ways..and not just *poof* there’s a man and *poof* a woman too!…I do not want to bash on any religions and I think it’s great to believe in someone that can give you strength when you need it or grant someone a child when they cannot have one…but it’s not my thing. It’s never been my thing. I hope I made this understandable. Thank you for asking me. :)
