My Dad and the Communist Spies



Yep Today I learned something. It's about something that happened to me about 40 years ago. I was 18 and went to see my dad. He was in his barn, tending to his favorite cow. I said I was planning to go to college. He said if I went to Free Will Baptist Bible College in Nashville,…

Keep @Hypochristi in College!

Contributor to Emilyhasbooks & North Carolinian Christi Sevits, needs your support today. She's fallen short in the finances needed to continue her college education, and our help can keep her enrolled.



When Christi created this indigogo fundraiser with her father, she needed $3500, but only needs $650 after further paperwork was done at the school. So, I'm writing this, asking for a cause that I believe in.



Christi is a double major in English and Russian, and is…

My Lack of Confidence is Depressing

I feel like I’m going to explode. The pressure is down significantly because I’ve been talking to more people about my situation and how I feel and about the thoughts that have been racing in my head, but I still get headaches every day when I think about how much I’m suppressing myself just to feel “safe” here.

I want SO MUCH to be able to wear a shirt that just says “ATHEIST” on it around campus, but the terrible anxiety I get at the thought of doing such…

Quantum Dreams: From Philosophy to Physics and the Space in Between

Hi, my name is Shine--for the purposes of delicious Internet anonymity--and I want to major in English with a minor in Physics.



Unfortunately, I am not sure if this combination is even available at my university; to be honest, I’m embarrassed to ask my advisor. “Hello,” I will say as my fingers uncontrollably fidget with an indeterminate angst, “may I please change my minor from philosophy to physics?”



Am I really prepared for the potential mix of hilarity and condemnation… Continue

Hi, I'm a cherry-picker.

Warning: the following is a giant rant about Christians in a community college philosophy class in central Texas. If you are not in the mood to be mired in a massive pile of negativity, you may want to click your browser's back button.



I just got back from Ethics class, where the question of the day was, "Should same-sex marriage be allowed?" I wrote… Continue

Over-reaction?

This is something that happened to me about a month ago that really angered me at the time, but that I have since wondered if I over reacted to:



I attend a small liberal arts college in Wisconsin, and I live in the on campus dormitories. It is not uncommon for student groups to go around to the dorms and post things in community space and slip invitations and such under doors. I have no problem with this. However, a few weeks back the on campus Christian group came by and taped to my… Continue
