TWIRP UPDATE: The Frustration Ain’t So Tough.

Howdy, blog world. I come to you with good news. In the previous post, I expressed my frustration about TWIRP week…. Not much has changed since then. Haha, just kidding. I mean, I still agree that the process is frustrating. The whole girl asking a guy out ordeal is ridiculous….but you won’t believe how many people have participated in it thus far! The girls are coming out from the dust, and guys have been asked out left and right. The TWIRP fest is taking over…I don’t know what’s happening to society, but I’m telling you: GIRLS RULE!!! I’ve seen So[…]

The Girls ask the Guys, it’s always a Surprise

Your heart is beating out of your chest, your hands are clammy, the answer seems to be inevitably NO, but you hope for a miracle, questions and concerns involving the “what ifs” are running rampant, breathing is not possible because you forgot how, AHHHHH… welcome to TWIRP week. The main topic of blogs this week is TWIRP- The Woman Is Required to Pay. It’s obvious that this event can be for those with significant others or someone who is simply eyeballin’.  The ladies define this as a risky scenario of putting themselves on the front line of the battlefield known[…]

Mission Impossible

Hello Blog World. This video is part of the worship service at my church on Sunday. Funny story about that. So I guess you could say I’m the type of person that likes new things. I like trying/starting new things, and it doesn’t take much for me to get really EXCITED. I enjoy looking for new music, activities, playing new games, going new places, etc. And on the contrary, I get really bored with the same things over and over. I get bored easily and withdraw most often. I lose interest and move on to something… well.. new. Last year[…]

Tis The Season To Be TWIRPED

It’s that time of season when the leaves are falling, and the scent of college boys are lingering around in the air–it’s usually a smell of over-sprayed Axe and Old Spice with a little sweat mixed along with it. It’s about this time when MidAmerica decides to advertise their annual event: TWIRP For many of you who aren’t familiar with this term, I’m going to start off  by saying: “No, this has nothing to do with twirking.” When I came to MNU my freshman year, for the longest time, I thought TWIRP was pronounced TWIRK, and I was really confused[…]

the blazin’ challenge

So, some of my friends and I decided to go to BWW’s (Buffalo Wild Wings) this weekend and a few of them decided to plunge to their death. and by that I mean they decided to do the Blazin’ Challenge. If you don’t know what this is, it’s when you have to eat 10 traditional wings with BWW’s BLAZIN hot sauce coated all over them; In under 6 minutes! You also can’t use any napkins or drink anything until you are completely done with the challenge. And my friends decided to do this!! All I have to say is… props to them! I don’t even like Mexican food, so I would have[…]

The Unwritten Rules In Getting a Date! Advice for Boys

Hello friends! So by the title I am sure you can tell that this is a bit different from what I normally write about.  I was inspired by a dinner conversation I had with some of the girls.  We exchanged stories, boy stories to be exact, about different experiences we had.  Most of these stories were on the funny and a bit on the creepy side.  After discussing, we talked about how we wished guys would know how to handle situations better.  If you’re interested in a girl there are certain unwritten rules.  We talked and agreed on some, and[…]

I Have Hope

On Monday I looked up one of my favorite songs on YouTube and found this video for it: Watching it helped inspire me to write what I shared in the video. On Sunday Living Hope Church of the Nazarene we are starting a new series called Focused Living: Now check out this video of Apollo Robbins, talk about skill and misdirection! Pastor used in as an illustration to show that where our focus is, matters! Also this past week I got to go back to YouthFront Camp West and manage the paddleboats and canoes! That was fun to be back[…]

Sometimes Popularity Don’t Come Till You’re 82!

By now, I’m sure more than half of the people affiliated with MNU know who Granny Franny is–I mean, seriously, how could you not? The Hiawatha, Kansan native spoke with me last Thursday afternoon. It was Halloween, she had just completed two test, and she was excited to show me pictures of the creepy mask she had on earlier. I laughed at the photos–this woman was stinking adorable; no wonder she was so popular, she was an easy person to love. However, This wasn’t the first time that Franny and I had conversed; we were actually quite friendly toward each[…]

Fall Retreat 2013

So this weekend I was blessed with the wonderful opportunity to go to Quapaw, Oklahoma to help lead worship for a fall retreat that was taking place for Central Church of the Nazarene and Mission Church! I got a chance to meet SO so many wonderful people, worship Jesus with them, have fellowship and laugh a TON. I was also able to go on a Zip-line, which was terrifying, but SO worth it at the same time! It was really an amazing weekend. I went with a worship team that was put together of 6 of us Mid-America Students and we lead worship throughout the whole weekend for the kids that were[…]
