Mourning the Death of a Relationship: A word for the hurting, the healing, and the hating

The day I lost my dignity

Hello my blogging friends, Last week, the blogging team was given a challenge. This challenge was to share a moment of vulnerability to enhance reading experience. You’ll have to let me know if this works in the comment section. Without further adieu, I present The Day I Lost My Dignity: A story of fear, heartache, and embarrassment. One time last year, I was feeling a little loopy. I had stayed up all night one Monday attempting to get a project done in the 24 hour lab, one of the feature’s in the library on campus. I had classes that day,[…]

Make it Like Your Birthday Everyday

I’d like to start this blog off wishing myself a happy birthday, as it was on Tuesday.And then I’ll wish my birthday twin Will a happy birthday, too. …And then the same for my bestie Konner whose birthday is today!! And next but no less important than those above, I’d like to wish my roommate Ashley a happy birthday, because anytime any of her friends have a birthday, she claims it for herself and accepts gifts. …aaaaaaaaand Finally, I’d like to thank Katy Perry for writing the song “Birthday” which trumps 22 by T-Swift. (go listen) So I turned 22[…]

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety-Jig

Hey blog world. By now, you’ve probably figured out that it’s officially Christmas Break, almost 2 weeks in counting! I’ve successfully completed 2 TV series from Investigation Discovery on Netflix, along with a season of Desperate Housewives and 6 movies. Aka, I’m bored out of my MIND. At home I have my parents, my two little brothers, and my 2 dogs: Patch and Bailey. My dad has been out of town for work and his flight was delayed. My mom works all day. My brother, Alex, works 2 jobs when he’s not in classes. My baby brother, Asher, is a[…]

What Strategic Management taught me about Yoga Pants

Blog world: It’s finals week. I’m not going to bore you with another post about it, but I did just kill my Strategic Management final. Whoop! Strategic Management is the business capstone, and I learned so much in it that I couldn’t even begin to tell you about how awesome of a class it was. However, after taking my final, I feel pretty confident about the information I learned. Has anyone been on Facebook lately? Can anyone tell me why I’ve read more about yoga pants than the fight for world peace in the last 3 months? I’ve seen so[…]

Going to Juarez, be right back!

Hey blog world! So I spent last weekend in Juarez. Crazy, I know, but it was pretty tranquil and the people were wonderful. I went with my gorgeous friend Taylor. Her grandparents have a branch of Compassionate Ministries, which gives relief to areas in the world through supplies. Normally, they make a trip to Mexico before Christmas to give Nazarene pastors and their families gifts and clothing and other various things in time for the cold, winter season. They have a banquet and there are like 20 pastors from the area with their whole families in a restaurant. Taylor and[…]

Tis the Season

(Please enjoy the sweet sounds of Sleeping At Last while reading this post) Attention Blog World: You may have been misled by our blogfeed as of this week. You may think based on the title of this post that the current season is that of TWIRP, which as you have probably figured out by now stands for MNU’s annual tradition: The Woman Is Required To Pay. While I did not TWIRP anyone, (see my post about dating,) I’m here to introduce a new topic to our faithful 6 readers out there. The holidays are upon us! It’s official. Thanksgiving is[…]

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[…]

Mourning the Death of a Relationship: A word for the hurting, the healing, and the hating

Breaking up is hard to do. I can’t take credit for that wisdom, but in my experience, it is true. When a relationship ends, it’s almost as if a whole person dies. When 2 people come together and form a dating relationship, the dynamic of the couple is like a 3rd friend. When that time is over, it’s like the third friend has left on bad terms, or even died but no one wants to acknowledge it. It affects everyone around, even those who weren’t involved. The two newly single people can catch a glimpse of each other from across[…]
