NOTICE: BEFORE I get started on my real post, I just wanted to talk about the small changes I’ve made to my blog! The website link has stayed the same (www.anxiousandawesome.wordpress.com), however, the actual name of my blog has changed to “Ellay’s Space”(My initials are L.A…Ell…Ay…Ellay) – because I apparently like borderline cliché, boring blog names. Whatever. I decided to change the name because my blog is not just about anxiety – I felt it was misleading when I decided to blog about things such as social media and books and movies and TV shows and whatever else I decided to blog about. I also felt constrained – like I had to stick to one topic because of the name, which might be a stupid reason but also…whatever. It is changed now.
Alriiiiight! On to the actual post!

Okay, so, this is my first new post in like two weeks. I’m sorry! My semester is almost over and I’ll be able to spend more time blogging, for those who care!

However, part of my job at the church requires me to input new books into our library system…so I’ve been reading a lot of back covers lately. And I’ve been laughing my butt off.

What do you see in the pictures above? Two people at the beach, right? Well, many people I know would say that she (Selena Gomez – if you were unaware) needs to “cover up.” But what about him (Zac Efron?) Why doesn’t he need to cover up? Just look at those glistening abs! Why shouldn’t he put a shirt on? Continue reading “Bikinis and Board-shorts”
If you are reading my blog and you don’t come from a Christian background, you might not understand the ridiculous pressure there is from the Christian community to get married.
Thankfully, my church is very modern and I don’t really feel pressured from the people I know, but it’s just, marriage is taught to be something we are all supposed to want from a very young age (actually – this is probably true for most girls regardless of your background) and it’s pounded into our heads until you get older and start to worry you’re running out of time.
I’m only 21. But sometimes I think: I’m already 21. Continue reading “Life as a Single Christian Girl [Part 1]”
