Tomorrow the new print edition of the Trailblazer comes out and this is what a Monday after a printing night looks like: Not for me though because I am “only” responsible for the video branch. Nevertheless, the Trailblazer is a lot of work. I just finished another video project that I have been working on for over three weeks now. https://vimeo.com/209853674 And I just now started another project about guidelines for seniors to find things to do for after college. This is a little update on my week. The great aspect about my videos though is that I learn a lot[…]Read More
If one enjoys writing, taking pictures, shooting videos, and sharing his/her opinions with others, then blogging is the perfect activity, bridging all of it together. As this school year comes to its end, I have decided to share my experience with a year long blogging for MidAmerica Nazarene University. “It’s so much work,” some said to me. Therefore, before I even applied for the job, I had done some math to see how many blogs I would write over the course of one school year. Well, the number (34) was quite spooky; however, as weeks went by, each and every[…]Read More
Friday March 24th MNU’s Heritage Choir toured to Olathe South and Shawnee Mission South. We sang, then we sang some more, and then we ate pizza! Above is a picture of our choir and Shawnee Mission South’s Heritage Choir Singers. We sang for them and then they sang for us. There are three choirs at MNU. Concert choir is our all womens choir, Heritage choir is a mixed ensemeble, and Symphonic choir.Read More
Week 20 Vlog. This video highlights my road trip with Hannah over spring break. Song, Requiem for a Fish, The Freak Fandango Orchestra.
What does a week at NTC look like? It looks completely different from a week at MNU, I can tell you that much. A typical week at NTC is first of all only three days. We go to school Monday through Wednesday. The idea is that you are in class for so many hours, but then you do the majority of the learning on your own. I’ll give you an example of my typical week here. On Monday, my first class isn’t until 11 am. Typically I sleep until like 10:30 and if I have time go to the coffee[…]Read More
I noticed that a great Spring Break comes with a lot of consequences. Struggling with no motivation and an increased need for sleep, the biggest consequence for me is wanderlust. It is the opposite of homesickness meaning I want to go see places. Now, I am stuck here for another month before I can go travel again. The other day, I already looked up hotels for next spring break. The reason why I feel like I am trapped in Kansas is because my spring break was out of the book. I had such a great time and really made the[…]Read More
Canceling my travel plans, I thought my Spring break would be a boring bummer. However, this past week turned out to be an amazing time, enabling me to charge up my batteries, explore Olathe’s amusement options, catch up on sleep, and be focused only on Track&Field. Instead of wondering around in New York City, I had decided to stay faithful to Olathe and use spring break as a lazy time, tottering among our track stadium, Olathe wellness center, and my bed. It may sound boring; however, believe me or not, sometimes I prefer boring before exciting because prior to[…]Read More
What a lovely spring break! This year I went to Omaha, NE with my friend Renee just for fun. We visited the Omaha Zoo and Aquarium, went to an improv show, and visited The Old Market.
On Saturday morning we did yoga in the aquarium!
More of the aquarium…
Penguins! Named this one Reginald!
We also visited Bob the Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge is cool because you can stand it both Nebraska and Iowa at the same time!
In all it was a fabulous weekend. For only a three hour drive it was well worth the trip!
As an exchange students, breaks mean that you finally get to go and explore on your own. Although Kansas and MNU is an adventure itself, the real fun begins when I have to book flights and plan trips by myself. It is about the balance of planning in advance and being spontaneous in exploring places I have never seen before. It is also about looking at school from a different perspective. Spring Break 2017 This year, I booked a flight to California -where my boyfriend’s family lives – to visit them. Although I have been there before, there are still[…]Read More
One of the things I was pleasantly surprised with my freshman year was the range of choices in our cafeteria. One can eat healthy all the time; however, plenty of unhealthy temptations are available as well. Being an athlete forces me to avoid the pizza/fries section; although, I would lie if I said that my everyday routine (salad and grilled chicken) makes me as happy as a big bowl of ice-cream or pepperoni pizza would. All of the choices we have beg a question: which one do you prefer? Are you one of those lucky people who can eat junk[…]Read More
