No Breaks!

Stress Factor: High The last weekend was very interesting for me. There has been a dramatic change from summer to fall/winter weather and as the weather changed so did the school work. The slow start into the semester should have made be alert for what is coming now. I shouldn’t be surprised that tests, exams, and assignments pile up because we are halfway through. Yet, I am overwhelmed with all the work – I guess in that sense it doesn’t matter what year you are in. When the weather is not your best friend! On top of all, the chaotic[…]

Prank Season is right around the corner!

With midterms and Halloween coming up, pranks become the ultimate way of releasing stress and getting back at your friends. Whether it is a good scare or a hilarious joke, it offers some distraction from the boring everyday life on campus. Since my freshman year, I have seen and heard of a lot of pranks – good and bad. Freshman Year Two things that stuck out to me were that one day we came to chapel and there was a shopping card hanging down from the roof top. Another day, we couldn’t practice because somebody drove through our field and[…]

SIGNS YOU ARE A COLLEGE SENIOR

A lot has changed this year that makes me realize how old I am. As if being called “grandma” by the freshmen isn’t enough, I wrote down a few signs that show you that you belong to the seniority class on this campus. You know you are a senior when people say the following things to you: “What? You are still here? I thought you graduated!” Honestly, there is nothing more depressing than another person showing you how fast time flies – especially teachers. If they even notice, how do you think I feel? In today’s world, I probably should[…]

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!

This does not only describe my first blog post, but also my senior year in which I finally got a starting position. Senior year could not have started better: For our soccer trip, we went to Chicago and my parents had planned a trip there as well. They were flying in to see their first collegiate game ever in person! They had not seen me play since I have left home 3 years ago, so this was huge for me! Preparations After a really hot and rough preseason (a few losses all against ranked teams), we were ready to make[…]

A NOT SO BORING WEEKEND

This weekend was the calmness before anxiety and stress hits you in the last week. I did absolutely nothing – at least nothing that was related to any kind of due date. I just enjoyed the beautiful spring at MNU and relaxed with friends. Friday My friend, Mo, made me watch a scary movie with her at the AMC and I spent the most time covering my eyes. When we came back, we watched even more movies, and this continued throughout the whole weekend. I finished a whole season of my favorite show and all the Hobbit movies. Saturday I[…]

The Palindrome of ‘Stressed’

A palindrome is the description of words which can be read forwards and backwards. Have you ever tried reading the word ‘stressed’ backwards? With that being said, it perfectly describes my week. If you look at it from the beginning, it was very stressful. In the end, it turned out to be a really rewarding week. The crazy week I went from taking tests and quizzes to oversleeping, finishing homework assignments on the last minute, and finally a much-needed Easter break. At the end of the week, we had a game against Washburn University. We lost 0-2. Yet, it was[…]

President’s Honors III

My Freshman year This is probably the biggest event on campus. It takes a whole week to set up the gym in cook center and I don’t even want to know how far in advance the organizing crew must start. It is an event where the school has an auction and promotes our students. In return, the attending people invest in our education and make our opportunities to learn and play sports possible. Year by year, it gets bigger and fancier. Our role Our team uses the events to makes some extra money by helping behind the scenes. We prepare[…]

THE WOMEN SOCCER KIND OF SMALL GROUP

Many people probably wonder what a team like us does in small group chapel. It is fair to say that we all came to MNU for different reasons; some of us are more religious than others. A lot of us don’t know the Bible very well, so how do the stories or spirituality apply to us? Patti Schulz, the RE of Draper/Ramsey, came up with a fantastic idea for our group last week, I was eager to write about in today’s blog: Actions count more than words We are all aware of this saying and it is true. While the school[…]

The Spirit of Comm Students

Tomorrow the new print edition of the Trailblazer comes out and this is what a Monday after a printing night looks like:   Not for me though because I am “only” responsible for the video branch. Nevertheless, the Trailblazer is a lot of work. I just finished another video project that I have been working on for over three weeks now. https://vimeo.com/209853674 And I just now started another project about guidelines for seniors to find things to do for after college. This is a little update on my week. The great aspect about my videos though is that I learn a lot[…]

Wanderlust

I noticed that a great Spring Break comes with a lot of consequences. Struggling with no motivation and an increased need for sleep, the biggest consequence for me is wanderlust. It is the opposite of homesickness meaning I want to go see places. Now, I am stuck here for another month before I can go travel again. The other day, I already looked up hotels for next spring break. The reason why I feel like I am trapped in Kansas is because my spring break was out of the book. I had such a great time and really made the[…]
