Lessons I’ve Learned My 2nd Yr of College


There is an endless list of lessons I’ve learned my second year of being at MNU.

However, If I named them all, I’d be writing for a week straight–no joke.

So here it is–a few valuables that I think everyone can benefit from:

Completing homework before Sunday.


This theory sounds ridiculous. But trust me, it’s the best thing in the world. I’m not ashamed to admit it, but there has been one day this semester where I’ve actually gotten all of my homework done on a Saturday and had nothing to do on a Sunday–imagine that, having the intended Sabbath day to relax. Now, I’m not saying that everyone should live by this rule–heck, I can’t even keep up with it–but it really does take a lot of weight and stress from your shoulders.

Getting Involved.


I’ve Probably said this before . . . and I’ll keep saying it: getting involved is one of the best things you can do. It will solve almost all of your problems: If you’re worried about making friends–get involved by going to events. If you’re worried that you’re going to be broke–get involved with working on campus. If you’re worried that no one will hear your voice–get involved with theater and choir. If you’re worried you’re going to be single for life–get involved with the ministry majors (wink wink.) Okay, that last one was a joke (Kinda). But now you have a clear idea on how getting involved at MNU can be beneficial.



Three Words My Friends: Patience is virtue.



So Netflix is probably one of the greatest inventions God has blessed us with.( Thank you Jesus!!!) And I don’t think I need to explain myself when it comes to this subject. But if I’d suggest one thing, I’d tell you to use it wisely–there are times when it can be a double-ended sword.

Dreams are real and they do come true.


This seems cliche, and like a line pulled from a Disney movie, but it’s a legit statement. I’m not going to sit here–laptop warm on my lap–and lie to you over the internet. But in all honesty, MidAmerica Nazarene University has made it possible for so many dreams of mine to come true. I’ve been encountered with so many opportunities. Half of them shouldn’t be possible, but they are. Literally, my heart jumps with glee. I am so blessed, and my goal for all of you is to have that same experience–for Christ to fill your hearts with love and security in all things that you do. Guys, dreams are real, and they do come true. And I’m excited for everyone to experience that here at MNU.

That is it for this Week’s blog!

Peace and Love
