“Winter Is Coming!” The Forecast Said, So Where in the World Is It?

This week, we all were about to go to Nebraska to compete at one of the best college tracks in the country. Sadly though, the weather forecast for this very same weekend showed that a major ice-storm would hit us by yesterday. Fortunately, as any good 21st century, politically correct institution would act, our incredible trip was cancelled. As we all can see from our windows, the horrendous snowstorm we have been warned before has not showed up yet. So, instead of kicking some behinds in Nebraska, here I am sitting in my living room asking myself, “How come that[…]

Welcome To Colorful Colorado

As one could cleverly derive from the title of this blog, I spent my winter break in Colorado. Thanks to my fantastic friends, I was able to enjoy some of the most beautiful views in this world. Moreover, I could go to a city, which I’ve utterly fallen for – Denver. I enjoyed every second in the state that has everything from stunning sceneries, and overly curious deer, to skyscrapers that are tirelessly trying to compete with the magnificence of many fourteeners in their background. I am sure that there are many wonderful places in the United States, however I[…]

A Funny Story of Delayed Planes and Too Much Waiting

If you have been reading my blogs for a while, you might have seen my first blog in 2016. I never found out why I got so lucky last year, but now I ask myself how it could backfire on me so badly this year. It is probably the worst start I could ever have in a year so that it almost seems ironic that at the same time last year I enjoyed the nice comfort of the first class. I highly recommend reading the blog from last year, so you can feel my pain! But before you get a[…]

Top 5 things I learned living in the UK

Now that it is Christmas Break, I have gotten to reflect a lot on this past semester. Living abroad has taught me a lot of different things. When you are traveling through countries, you get a small taste for what that culture is like, but when you live somewhere you truly understand the culture and how different it is to your own. So here are the top 5 things I learned while living in England. 1. Brits love their tea. Like seriously. I have never seen so many people obsessed with one thing. They have it in the morning, after[…]

A Final Thought.

Finals are over. But the Snapchats that I got screenshots of are forever. And golly gee did I collect some beautiful pictures that truly depict what MNU is like when finals week rolls around…


When you realize its finals week and you are not mentally, physically, or spiritually prepared for the week ahead…

When you start to study but the fates are just not on your side.

When distractions are a real problem. Especially if they come in the shape of a soft 20 pound cat!

When your first final is over and your brain hurts real bad.

How NOT to use Land Gym

So, everyone knows that part of being healthy is exercising, right? Are you part of #TeamGetSwole? Are you looking to lose a pound or two? Is basketball your thing? It’s a good thing we have our own gym and work out facilities here at MNU! We find the gym to be a great place to exercise when stressed out, exercise when we’re happy, exercise when we’re sad, exercise when we’re furious, and exercise when we’re feeling no emotions at all. However, we DO suggest using land gym a bit differently than we do in this video…

Oxford and Stonehenge

Last weekend I went to Oxford and Stonehenge with Harriet. I was not aware of this, but Oxford is made up of 38 different colleges. We got to see a couple of them and just wondered around the town a little bit. We also got to have tea in this cute little coffee shop. The next day we got to travel down to see Stonehenge. My expectations were at first high, but then when I told all my English friends that I was going to see it they were all just like, “It’s literally a bunch of stones. Why do you want to see it?” However, It was really cool to see. They were also a lot bigger in person. I think it is definitely something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime!
