College – Is It Really Worth It?

A question that every student asks, and every parent is worried about. We all have been there. There are times when all the effort, time, and money seem to be invested into something we don’t really care about. We all learned by heart the stories preaching about the importance of having a college degree. On the other hand, we all know Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates who dropped out of college and are billionaires now. So, which path is the right one? I think that college is not as much about getting a degree as it is about[…]

WaterFire at the Plaza

This weekend was the WaterFire event in Kansas City which is an installation of fires along the banks of Brush Creek next to the Country Club Plaza. Everyone who has seen how glamorous the Plaza itself is can now imagine what such an event would look like. That MNU is close to KC truly is an advantage, especially for people like me who are used to live in the suburban areas of big towns. I live close to the city, Hamburg, in Germany. This city is so big that it is considered an own state. With a big city nearby,[…]

FIRST TIME EXPERIENCES!

This past week, I have been doing a lot of things. In order to tell you about everything I tried to find something they all have in common which is that all of them happened for the first time. On Wednesday, some of my teammates spontaneously invited me to go to the Royals game. I was so excited because I have so much about it, but I have never been. The Royals play such an important role in Kansas City and the surrounding. Winning the World series last year, almost everyone can identify with the Royalty blue. It is a[…]

Action Pact takes to the road

This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]

Chicago and Championships

Over the break a few friends and I stayed at Jordan’s house in Champaign, IL which we used as a home base for getting to Chicago and exploring the city. We had some mishaps along the way such as losing Levi’s bag on the side of the highway when, wrapped in a trash bag to protect it from rain, it escaped the ties binding it to the roof of our car and didn’t even make it into Missouri. Unfortunately we didn’t realize this had happened until we were a few hours into the trip. Levi handled things really well though[…]

Spring Break Adventures

Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break.  No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret.  Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days.  We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville.  We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville.  The next morning we[…]

Spring Break

Hey friends! As you all know, this is the last day of classes before our Spring break starts.  Most of us are leaving campus.  Tuesday, I am leaving at 7 in the morning to drive to Tennessee with Kairos.  We are going to be backpacking through the Smokey Mountains.  I have gone on several trips with Kairos and this will be the second time for me in the Smoky Mountains.  Last time I went backpacking through them was two years ago. We will be back late Friday night.  I am going to do my best in taking pictures to have[…]

Trapping the Mouse

This last weekend I got the opportunity to play Mollie in Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era England and is probably my favorite show I have been in. The hair and makeup alone for this production was so incredibly fun. It took almost two hours for me to get fully ready with my makeup, hair, and costuming. Quinn and I had a lot of fun with it though. I just thought I’d share some of our pictures from dress rehearsal week as well as some pictures of the actors and the set.     This[…]

Feeling the Love

This weekend was absolutely incredible and full of love. Usually I wouldn’t cheese up Valentine’s day but this weekend was actually really special to me. Friday and Saturday I went to the Women of Faith Farewell Tour at the Sprint Center. Their theme was Loved and it was one of the most encouraging conferences I have ever been to. Most of the women who did this conference had been traveling and speaking together for twenty years. Several of the speakers were over sixty years old. It was incredibly encouraging to see women completely command that space, share their testimonies, and[…]

The Space Between

Hey friends! We are in the home stretch. These next few weeks are going to be tough and stressful for a lot of us.  I know they definitely will be for me!  For me, it’s been a little rough getting back in the groove coming back from Thanksgiving break.  It was like a strange teaser for the moment we all are waiting for…Winter break!   The end of the semester! All the anticipation and excitement isn’t really helping with trying to study for finals and finish all those long term assignments that have been put off to the very last[…]
