Love is like your first period. For some, it happens conveniently in the shower, and for others, it happens during your middle school talent show in your white pants. Either way, it’s unexpected.
Is a person capable of falling in love with only one person in their whole entire lifetime?
poem/future song inspired by Kenneth Burke
Learning things in school is actually really useful. What is man? What is man? But a… Love using, love-making, love-misusing animal Inventor of the negative, revolving our lives around what we can’t do But unknowingly, we can, with the Truth Purely innate with us Naturally, emphatically But why do we separate ourselves from this - our natural condition? Our purity, our sanctity -...
letters to crushes
“We met over Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I was in Starbucks with my nose buried in the book, and she came over my shoulder and whispered, “Don’t Panic!” …I did. I had never seen anyone so beautiful. I invited her to sit down, though, and she did, and we talked about the book and some of our shared interests— how we share the Ninth Doctor in...

“Do you think I am an automaton? — a machine without feelings? and can bear to have my morsel of bread snatched from my lips, and my drop of living water dashed from my cup? Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain, and little, I am soulless and heartless? You think wrong! — I have as much soul as you — and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I...
I was sitting in mass in awe (as usual), just reflecting about how ridiculously blessed I am to be surrounded by such beautiful people (inside and out) in my life. Truly, I yearn for these simple moments of realization. And I thank Him constantly for my day-to-day interactions with people. For simple moments of light-hearted conversation. For the opportunity to share pieces of our lives, minds,...

I love my Comm Theory class and our assignments.
Based on NPR’s “This I Believe” columns. (www.thisibelieve.org) I believe in love. The real kind. Hook-ups, booty-calls, one-night stands – these words are all too familiar in this culture, especially in the college scene. “It was just a one night stand, no big deal.” “I met her at a party. She was cute.” Divorce rates are at the highest they have ever been. “Irreconcilable...

“Woe is she who is captured but not yet pursued. She will constantly question herself and will never truly understand or know her worth in his eyes. He cannot act towards another woman without her suspicion, for she knows not the difference behind the intentions of his menial acts for her and those performed for other women; she has yet to know the exclusivity of his love. Woe is he who...
There are three things that amaze me— no, four things that I don’t understand: how an eagle glides through the sky, how a snake slithers on a rock, how a ship navigates the ocean, how a man loves a woman.

A Catholic Tradition of Social Justice
Lenore Yarger These are difficult days for Catholics in North Carolina – at least for some of us. The Catholic Church has drawn much attention lately through myriad issues that keep erupting in the news, including debates over who can marry and who should have to pay for contraception, as well as investigations of errant Catholic sisters and Girl Scouts and, locally, a multi-million dollar...
