Looking for some answers?

So this is my second year at WSU, and I have attended a couple different churches since I've been around. They are very different from one another, but both are pretty cool. If you're interested in finding a church in Pullman, may I suggest one of these?

The first is Living Faith Fellowship (LFF). It is the HUGE church up on the hill near Dairy Queen. I'm sure you've seen it if you drive with your eyes open. This is the largest church I have ever been to. It has a huge congregation of all ages and the head pastor is very fun and outgoing. Might I recommend Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) if you're not into getting up early on Sundays? CCF is the youth group to LFF. There are a ton of students from both WSU and U of I who attend CCF; oh, and the band rocks! CCF begins at 7:30 every Friday night, and is a great place to go and hang out.

The second chruch I have been attending lately is called Resonate. It is held every Sunday at 6pm at the Schweitzer Event Center. It is a church that was created entirely by young people, and everyone there is so outgoing and caring. Resonate is non-denominational, and actually sort of frowns upon the term "religion." One great thing about Resonate is that it is focused on more than just the community of Pullman. One of the head leaders also leads the group responsible for sending help to countries who are dealing with devistating issues, like female mutilation. It is a really great church to be a part of, so if you're looking to just scope things out, I suggest showing up on Sunday.

ASWSU and SEB Present the Concerts Pass

Starting this week WSU students have the opportunity to purchase what could change concerts in Pullman forever.
ASWSU in collaborating with the SEB have created the Concerts Pass. It is in the fashion of the current sports pass where you buy the pass for a set amount and get into all the events. The Concerts Pass is 60 dollars when you sign up for classes and it guarantees you access to three large scale concerts.
Along with getting into the concerts the concerts pass owners will be entered into to drawings for prizes such as band merchandise and meet and greets with the performers.
In order for the SEB to gain this money to put on these large scale concerts 5,000 passes need to be sold. Besides those with the passes only 1,500 tickets will be on sale for each individual concert.
So buy your pass today before they run out. Also vote for who you would like to see in Pullman at

Feeling in the "Movie Review" Spirit

So other than working at a crazy country style restaurant during break, I haven't been up to much. I did, however, just see The Other Boleyn Girl. Let me just say, if you're in for a fun, light-hearted film about love and live, keep on looking.

Natalie Portman portrays a very coniving and sinister Anne Boleyn, and she played the part so believably that if it wasn't for Garden State, I don't think I'd like her so much.

Now don't get me wrong, the movie was both entertaining and informative. I learned quite a bit and I enjoyed following the characters throughout the film, and I think anyone could benefit from a history lesson. Just don't expect to leave your comfy theater chair with a smile on your face (Unless it's because you're laughing at the old ladies who sat in front of you and talked during the ENTIRE MOVIE as was my case).

While the mood was not so uplifting, I have to say that I'm still glad I went. I finally know the story about King Henry VIII, well at least part of it, and I feel a little better about my knowledge of why he seperated from Rome. Also, I now understand, but don't condone, the whole beheading thing.

All in all, I think The Other Boleyn Girl is worth seeing, just don't expect a happy ending, and don't say I didn't warn you.
