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 of the most…unadventurous classes I have had in my very minimal college experience. So in my fatigued state I gave in to my curiosity and wanted to see what was so funny. So I slowly leaned forward to look at this girls computer to see what was so funny, trying not to be noticed so I didn’t look like a total creeper.
NOW I KNOW I shouldn’t have been nosey! And I know I should’ve just continued to do my notes! But I didn’t…so oh well boo hoo :P.
ANYWAY! So i’m looking at here computer right? And what do I see?? Facebook… At first I was like “DUUUMMBB!” because I thought they were probably laughing at stupid posts or little memes. But then I looked again and realized it wasn’t just any Facebook page. Oh no! It was about MNU! And not only was it about MNU, but it was a confessional! After a second of snooping, I could see that this page was a place for MNU students to anonymously confess their feelings for one another! This really really off set me at first. I was like “WHAT THE HECK??” So I quickly opened up Facebook on my laptop and navigated to the page MNU Secret Admirers. At first I was kind of turned off to the idea. I thought it was a ridiculous idea and that it could open up a window to some bullying/pranking. But once I began to read it, I found that it seemed that MOST of these confessions were pretty sincere. It turns out that college students can be somewhat mature :P! Of course there are some fake ones, and some joke posts, but these are pretty easy to weed out from the authentic confessions. I spent the rest of class reading this page (which was a bad idea! Never browse the internet during class!), and actually found it to be pretty amusing.
It doesn’t say who started the page, and the submission process goes through google docs, which is explained on the page itself, and is completely anonymous. Someone had to be pretty creative to think something like this up, and has to be pretty committed to keep up with managing the page. To me, its a place where people can say the things they can’t get the guts to say to the people that they feel need to hear it.
So if you don’t go to MNU quite yet then this is a little peak to what’s on the minds and hearts of some of your soon-to-be fellow Pioneers. So just go see whats up, read some posts, and learn some things about some people without actually knowing who they are…yet. 🙂
And if you DO go to MNU, then check it out, post the things you wish you could say to the people you wish could hear it, or just read what’s going on with some people. And WHO KNOWS, you might read one about yourself!
