So, let's real talk for a second. I see all sorts of complaints about chapel. I hear them from friends too. The thing is, you signed a contract when you came to this school. So, why do you act like you didn't expect it? If you didn't read the contract, that's your own fault. Fox has an authority about some things because you signed that piece of paper. I don't understand people's desire to fight the very thing they put themselves under. I understand that chapel isn't what you thought it might be, but honestly, it's what you make of it. You can hear God if you want to. But, if you close off your heart, walk in with a complaint on your tongue, then of course it's going to suck. But, if you walk in and say "hey, maybe God is going to do something awesome" and you make an effort to meet with Him, you will find that chapel can be so much better. The politics don't matter, if you don't think and believe the same as the speaker, it doesn't matter. God can work wherever, whenever, and however if you're receptive.
If you just like to complain,you could have picked a cheaper school to attend so your complaints wouldn't cost you $40k a year.
I do get that sometimes chapel really sucks. I don't always enjoy it, but I knew when I came what I signed up for and I refuse to fight the authority I placed myself under. I made the decision and there are always consequences to every choice. Good and bad.

Sometimes when I'm at a restaurant, I'll avoid ordering an item if it has a weird name, because I don't want to look silly when I read it out loud.

A lot of my friends have had a need based grant that Fox took away. Now a few have to leave or might have to leave because they can't afford it. Does this college care about its students?

Feel depressed every night, talked with my friend (a female) about it but feel like I’m being weak, or there is something wrong with me because I’m a guy... my last straw was taken when I felt so depressed one night I blew up on that one real friend verbally. Now I feel guilty and alone.

One of my biggest regrets in life was going to this school. "Be Known" ... yeah right. You'll only be known if you fit into the good little Christian box. Once they know you're not that they ignore you and your thoughts.

I thought The Incredibles II wasn't that great...

I'm feeling weird and need to vent.
A couple of years ago I ended things with my gf. She was bitchy and kind of abusive but nothing major, at least not till I actually broke up with her.
She was short but kind of stocky and we both knew she could overpower me since she performed better at the gym than me one or 2 times (was our secret for a while since she didnt wanna embarrass me). Basically, as I broke up with her and was leaving the apartment she suddenly put me in this weird hold from behind and pushed my face against the wall, not sure what she actually did since I couldn't see well, but my arms were pulled super tight over my head and I couldn't move.
She started dropping f bombs and yelling at me. I started yelling back but she put me in this sort of headlock (i remember choking), tried to struggle but i couldn't breath and my arms were kinda numb from her pressing me against the wall. Before i knew it I was on the floor and she was gone, never saw her after.
I thought about pressing charges but i was very ashamed at what happened cuz she was a girl and all, never found anybody to tell this to.
What triggered this memory was that i saw her at a party a few weeks ago and she acted like nothing happened. She hugged me and I tried to push her off kinda halfhearted, but she tensed up and laughed quietly like she was daring me to try. Getting mocked years later by this girl who literally put me to sleep was too much to handle, so I left.
Yes I'm a wuss, figured telling this story here was better than not saying it anywhere. Eff it all

I really like the song weary lover by rwds. It is extremely relatable
