3 More Years!

A year later, and here we are,  finishing the school year off and continuing on with our lives.  Finals are finishing up, and we are tying all of the loose ends of our assignments up and getting them all turned it. Some of us will be back next year, and some of us won’t be. We all have memories we will never forget, people we will never let go of, experiences we will never get the chance to be a part of again, and it all plays into our life we have encountered here at MNU. As the hallways clear[…]

Thinking Back

HEY GUYS! So, it’s official, my freshman year is almost over. There are only two weeks of school left! Two weeks?? Where did the time go?  Where in the world have I been??  It feels like just yesterday I was going through NSO (New Student Orientation) Week.  And now I’m coming up on my lest week of school.  It’s crazy how fast time flies. We were talking about this the other day in class (how time has gone by so quickly).  There was a group discussion about our experiences in our past and it was almost completely focused on this[…]

Life Lessons From the Mouth of an English Teacher

HEY GUYS!! Lately I’ve been sharing some of my classroom stories with you guys, and I think it is about time for another one.  Don’t you?  OF COURSE YOU DO!  So here goes! 😛 The other day I was in class, English Composition II, and we were talking about our government.  The professor handed out a citizens test to see if we were knowledgable on our government and it’s history.  A series of groans and mumbles echoed across the room as he began telling us about this test we were about to take.  The class wanted no part of this.[…]

MNU Has Secret Admirers? What???

HEY GUYS!! Story time!!! So I was in class the other day, taking notes on my laptop, and this girl in front of me starts discretely chuckling to herself.  At first I ignored her, and continued listening to the EVER SO EXCITING lecture that was being presented by the very entertaining professor in the font of the class :|.  The only problem was that she continually kept giggling, and showing her computer to the girls sitting beside her, who then in turn began giggling themselves. Now I’m not gonna lie, I was struggling to stay awake.  This was definitely one[…]

Stressed Out!

So the end of the year is coming quickly! And thinking back, I can see that there is a lot I could say about what has happened to me this year.  There’s been some hard times and some good times.  There’s been ups and there’s been downs.  College has been an awesome experience, and I have learned so much about myself.  For example, I have learned that I am not very good at managing my time where there is enough space for homework :\.  I usually just plan right over homework time.  I also learned that I am very good[…]

Hiking? In Tennessee? I think so :)

YES! It happened! Through Kairos, our wednesday night chapel service, we went hiking at Savage Gulch in Tennessee over spring break! It was a week of amazingness, let me tell you! I don’t even know where to start. There was hiking (obviously :P), beautiful scenery, amazing fellowship, and plus Savage Gulch is only 2 hours north of Nashville! So not only did we see some of America’s most amazing landscapes, but we also got the chance to see one of America’s best cities.  But before I get a head of myself, how about I start from the beginning? So 7 am,[…]

MIDTERMS!!!!

HEY GUYS!! It’s MIDTERMS WEEK! Do you know what means?  It means that next week is spring break!! And this guy gets to spend his week in Nashville hiking and camping in the woods! The school is taking a bunch of us students down there for the week to have fellowship together and to just have a good time outdoors. BUT I will talk about that more in 2 weeks, after break, when I get back to blogging! So this week has been INSANELY BUSY! Last semesters Midterms were not this bad.  Maybe it’s because I didn’t really have any[…]

One Does Not Simply Choose A Major.

HEY GUYS!  I have a thought for the incoming Pioneers, or any other high school senior preparing for college. I bet you can guess what it’s about! Yep! You guessed it! It IS about choosing a major! In coming to school sure you’re overwhelmed with trying to find a way to pay for school, you’re worried about making sure you have everything to bring to school, and you might even be worried about meeting new people.  Some of us aren’t as out going is the rest of you and the fear of isolation can get the best of us sometimes.[…]

Just Another Coffee Engulfed, Library Stationed, Book Digging Session

It was a nice break while it lasted, but our snow days are officially over!  Now it’s back to the dreaded homework we have been putting off and the horrid tests coming up we neglected to study for.  The bustle of school is back and it is time to get into the common groove once again.  So it’s time to load up on coffee, hit the library, and dig our Pioneer noses in the books. Now, during one of my coffee engulfed, library stationed, nose digging sessions….wait, I probably shouldn’t say nose digging should I? It doesn’t quite sound like[…]

English Comp. Inquiry :P

HEY GUYS!! SOO the other day in one of my classes we had a little discussion that really made me think a lot, so I would like to share that with you guys. BUT! First of all, as most of you know, it is Valentine’s day!  So happy Valentine’s day! I really hope all of you enjoy your day!  This is definitely not my favorite holiday but I can still appreciate it. Anyway, back to the original topic: the conversation I had in class.  In my English Composition II class, we were talking about an essay that we were given[…]
