Be Mindful — Have No Fear

Is it just me, or has this week been pretty bipolar???  I feel like I just fell straight out of a Katy Perry Song! Just a few days ago it was so hot I was dying of heat in my dorm.  Now its so cold I can’t feel my face! (Did ya catch the Hot ‘N Cold reference?? hehe) But for real, this Kansas weather is so dangerously close to the Nebraskan weather I am oh so use to: unexpected rise and falls in temperature.  This whole week has just been up and down!  First with the weather, then with homework, and[…]

The one where God is good.

So we are in the middle of my second week back at MNU and it has been going good. Except for today. This morning I woke up and my hair was a mess. I looked out the window and it was snowing and icy everywhere. My car doors were froze shut. I had to scrape my windshield. Then I realized that I lost my drivers license and debit card. I drove to Starbucks and they gave me the wrong drink. All the way to my job/internship downtown the traffic was so bad that I didn’t go over 45/50 miles an[…]

Tis the Seasons

They say a lot can change in a short amount of time when it comes to Kansas weather. Having lived here for all 19.2 years of my life I can attest to this being the truth. However, the past 3 days have BLOWN MY MIND. 2 days ago the weather was around 66, beautifully sunny, and all around glorious! I wore shorts to class, ran back from the gym, and didn’t wear a jacket to work. Yesterday started out nice, I mean, I LOVE the rain! Then it started to get REAL cold while still raining, NO THANKS. Then I[…]

The Year of 2013. HERE WE GO.

So far this year of 2013 has already been a whirlwind. One month of the twelve is already coming to a close and it feels like I was just making new years resolutions yesterday. My mind is blown thinking about all the change that will come to be within this following year, its unbelievable. Here’s the new that’s been in this girl’s life. Last week, two of my dearest friends moved half-way across the world, one to study at a film school in Scotland and the other to study ceramics in Wales. Needless to say, I have been stalking there Instas and[…]

The one where break ends.

Well tomorrow I start my second semester of my sophomore year of college. Woah. I cannot believe that I will be half way done with my college experience after this semester. I am so excited to be back on campus with all of my friends and professors. Tomorrow is going to great. I think we are getting welcomed back and talking a little bit about our experience in Europe during chapel. Ill get to see a ton of people that I haven’t seen since last spring when we left for summer. Since the last time that I lived on campus[…]

SECOND SEMESTER OF FRESHMAN YEAR!!

HEY GUYS!!  So yesterday I shared my feelings about the break, and, as promised, here is today’s blog on how I feel about the rest of the semester!! So it’s been occurring to me lately that college is really stressful.  Getting finalized, paying bills, it’s all kind of overwhelming.  And that’s ok because I know it is all worth it.  But why is it worth it?  Is it worth it to, one day, be able to support your family and not have to struggle to pay the bills?  Is it worth it to one day have a career that SHOULD[…]

BREAK!!

HEY GUYS!!!  So, first off, this break has been crazy! And since my computer has been incapacitated for some time now I have not been able to keep anyone updated.  But now that this week everything was fixed and I am finally within the range of a successful Wi-Fi connection I can recap my break!  So here goes!!!! Let’s start with a list of the things I did this break: 1. Work 2. Work 3. Work more 4. Work even more K done! Just Kidding! BUT it sure felt like that was the case!  Working 9 or 10 hour days[…]

the prankster gets pranked…

This is a video coming at you from a Cabin Fever experience. We were given a few hours to look around at the outlet malls in Branson. Those who know me know that I LOVE pranking people. Nothing destructive, just good fun. Well, I guess what goes around comes around. Thanks to Gabe Crumpley for this awesome footage.

Cabin Fever

  This past week, I spent doing a J-term called “Groups and Group Dynamics,” aka Cabin Fever. 8 students piled into a van with Professor Hamilton and headed to a cabin in Branson for a week. We had class room discussions in a living room around a fireplace and tasks to accomplish as a group, such as building a tower out of recyclables that was 30 inches tall and could hold a brick off the ground for longer than 30 seconds. or searching for our own names on tombstones in cemeteries (I was set up for failure with my name.)[…]
