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[…]

When You Get A Break…

As an exchange students, breaks mean that you finally get to go and explore on your own. Although Kansas and MNU is an adventure itself, the real fun begins when I have to book flights and plan trips by myself. It is about the balance of planning in advance and being spontaneous in exploring places I have never seen before. It is also about looking at school from a different perspective. Spring Break 2017 This year, I booked a flight to California -where my boyfriend’s family lives – to visit them. Although I have been there before, there are still[…]

My Week In A Glance (In Pictures)

My week has been packed with things which was a pleasant change from being sick for a whole week before that. Instead of writing a ton of words here like usually, I thought I would just post a bunch of pictures to show you what my week was like.  I had the idea because MNU’s website has this handy function of showing you a whole week in advance (you just have to chose a certain week). It is really good to print out schedules and see what your classes look like. Also, not only is this blog more interesting than reading, but[…]

Why Kansas Weather is Ridiculous!

Kansas weather is as unpredictable as my test scores in Dr. Hamilton’s classes. You never know if you end up with a high somewhere in the 80s or a low around 30 to 40. Especially this month proved to be very unstable in temperatures. For me, it is common to look out of the window, see a grey sky every day and expect rain most of the time. Moreover, you can predict the temperature just by the observations. In Kansas, however, I have learned to at least change twice before leaving the door. First, I look outside and get dressed.[…]

Unusual Dinner Dates

Every now and then I have dinner dates with my suite mates, Madison and Sydney. Over the years, it has become tradition that we would go to Town Topic, a very small fast food restaurant that they introduced me to my Sophomore year. Since our schedules are very different – each one’s busy in its own way – we never find time to see each other. However, we manage to always find one day or one special occasion to meet up for Town Topic. Without even knowing, for these dates developed the following habits: No one dresses Up Whether it[…]
