Auditions and Callbacks and Cast Lists..Oh My!

This week was tough. I know finals are coming up, but those are nothing compared to auditions. Even though it’s December and we’re about to leave for Christmas break, we are already getting ready for the spring play. This year MNU is doing “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie in the Sunderland Black Box Theater. I love that our theatre department continues to do well-known, classical shows, but I hate that they all have such small casts. “The Mousetrap” has a cast of 8 — 5 guys and 3 girls, however, 20 people arrived for auditions — 6 guys and 14 girls.[…]

Thanksgiving aka “Erntedankfest”

“Erntedankfest” is the best German translation I could come up with for this American holiday. It means fest of thanking the harvest. We barely celebrate it anymore, since agriculture has lost its importance. Celebrating it again and in an American style was therefore really exciting for me. Like last year, my roommate, Denise, took me home with her to Omaha, Nebraska. I was really glad that I was invited because I wouldn’t have known what to do on Campus all by myself. Especially after so many people asked me “Are going home for Thanksgiving? Do you even celebrate it?” or[…]

Black Friday In KC

Growing up in Kansas City was something that I didn’t value much as a kid, but now I’m extremely proud to be apart of this city. I enjoy everything about it, including its not-so-great parts. An example of this would be Black Friday. Literally a few hours after we celebrate with our families about how thankful we are, we all rush to Walmart and Target to spend last weeks paycheck and fight people to the death for those 1000 thread count sheets that are half price. HALF PRICE! This is not foreign to me. Since I was 16, I worked[…]

Thanksgiving in Texas

For Thanksgiving break I went with Quinn, my mom, my dad, and my brother to Houston, Texas to visit my family. I thought I would share some of my pictures from the trip 🙂 Friday we went to a University of Houston football game. I know nothing about sports but Quinn and I managed to have fun. It was just great to hang out with family. We drove home Saturday and Sunday. It was great to see family that I hadn’t seen in a while. I decided also to thank God for three main things this year. For my Family. They[…]

No Money Left?

For all my friends who wish the amount on their bank account had at least two digits… In front of the point. How am I supposed to buy something with $0.64 left? I know, I know, it’s all my fault: I wasn’t responsible enough and I didn’t pay enough attention in Personal Finance. If I had known what a college students has to pay for food and entertainment to get over the frustration of homework and classes, I would have started to save money from 6th grade on. I am just kidding. Taking care of money is not easy, especially[…]

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

My all-time favorite Thanksgiving themed “movie” is “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”, and it has been for as long as I can remember. The message is just important to me now as it was when I was a little girl: No matter the circumstances, you should always remember to give thanks for what you do have. Barely 2 minutes into the short film, Charlie Brown’s little sister Sally says the following: “Why should I give thanks on Thanksgiving? What do I have to be thankful for? All it does is make more work for us at school.” and then complains about[…]

Success Mushroom

I can’t sing. I am not a musical person. My friends are musical people but I was not given that gift. I can art…sometimes. People tell me I can art but I won’t attempt to draw something that I’ve never drawn before because people might look at it and realize I’m not very good at arting after all. I am as good of a Christian as I am ever going to be. I have a certain ability to understand and experience God and I should be content with where I am. These were statements that I believed about myself about[…]
