Step Up

Competition can be a crazy thing sometimes. I’m the kind of guy who loves competition, but I do not take it too seriously. So the other day Lanbarger House had a few dodgeball games in Land Gym and I see that there are a lot of other guys who love competition too…..but way too much.  They take it way too seriously.  There was name calling, cheating, lying, and it really just took away from the game.  And that’s really all it is:  a game.  It’s only a game and yet people treat these games like it’s life or death.  Yeah[…]

Hometown Glory.

There’s something about moving away from home that makes you appreciate it all the more. It suddenly becomes a place that you begin to long for. I am so thankful to have had fall break this past weekend in which I was able to go home and simply be with my family. If you ever get the chance, be sure to make a little road trip out to the good ol’ town of Manhattan, KS, because visiting the little apple is quite the treat. Being a college town, Manhattan is just a tad livelier than your average town of 53,000.[…]

The one where the hills come alive with the sound of music!

This past weekend was my first personal trip of the semester. And I loved it. Hannah Swearengin, Hayley Pankratz, Erin Knocke, and I got up super early to catch a bus, then a train, then another train, and then finally hours later arrived in Salzburg, Austria. The train ride there was beautiful. The scenery that we traveled through was incredible. After we arrived we wandered around for awhile until eventually finding our hostel. Yes we stayed in a youth hostel. And yes it was awesome. The next day we went to multiple museums such as Mozart’s birthplace and his residence. We also did some shopping through Old[…]

Passion, Purpose, Pumpkin

On October 13, 2012 at 8am, in the cool, about to rain, Kansas weather a race was run. I was about to embark on a journey with one of my best friends and encouragements Mike Reynolds. Music prevalent was over the surrounding chattering crowd. Numerous shouts of encouragement being thrown out and an all around joyous time being had. All this somehow associated with one of the most massive sorrowful events that any family could experience. It was in honor of an amazing family, and I have never met them. The story, the fight, the loss, but the purpose triumphs.[…]

Ring by Halloween

This past weekend, student chaplain Bri Davis and Michael Morrison, aka the face of ASG got engaged! Michael’s roommate kept the proposal a secret for nearly 4 months, and Bri’s roommate kept it quiet for about 24 hours! Way to go, pioneers! Right after the proposal, the couple headed back to Spindle Lobby for an engagement party. Congrats to the future Morrison family!

The Things I’m Missing

   HEY GUYS!!! There’s something on my heart right now that I would really like to share with you all. There comes a time when our independence becomes almost…unappealing.  It’s a time when your love for your family and the love for your home really comes out and you can’t help but long for them.  Its a time when our pride gets pushed aside and all we want is to be at home again where there were no problems and no worries.  That time has hit me sooner than I had thought, and I miss my family.        College is[…]

The one where we go hiking across the SWISS ALPS.

We went hiking through the Swiss Alps for our PE class….how sick is that.–yeah pretty sick right?! This was most definitely one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. We road trains to Stoos and then had to ride cable cars and then ski lifts (yes ski lifts) to the top of these massive mountains! It was the most breath-taking place I have ever been in my life. No doubt. The pictures that we have do not come close to its beauty. It is an experience that you have to actually be there to comprehend the magnificence. We saw the land where Switzerland originated[…]

An Arizona Weekend

This last weekend my paradigm was shifted from cool, fall weather consisting of scarves, boots, and pumpkins to a distant land far, far away filled with sunshine, shades, and desert. I was ready for a mental break, for a shift of gears. I was ready to set aside the college chaos for a weekend and allow my mind to take in something fresh and new. Arizona is quite different from the epic state of Kansas. It contains a beauty that is quite unique, consisting of cacti, palm trees, red rock, and mountains. My man and I took off for this[…]
