Spring Break 2016: Colorado

Hey everyone! This week is spring break, which means that I’ve consumed more junk food than usual and I haven’t worn jeans at all (except to church). On Saturday, I road tripped to Colorado Springs with my friend Morgan. We were on the same hall freshman year and this year we are on newspaper staff together. It was fun to spend time with her and relax! Like I said, we began our adventure in Colorado Springs. We explored Garden of the Gods, went shopping in Manitou Springs, and hung out with some friends that live in Colorado. We stayed in Colorado Springs[…]

Spring has Sprung and Break has…Broken?

I’m sitting in my bed at my house, back home, with my puppy laying by my side and my family scattered about. I just got home from dropping my best friend off at her house, even though she might as well live at my place. Spring Break is halfway over and I haven’t done anything super exciting. And I don’t plan on it. At least, not in the usual sense of the word “exciting”. I mean, I know someone who went to New York and saw the Broadway show that I am just DYING to see (the answer is Hamilton: An[…]

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[…]

Why PR is a nightmare!

As you can see from my blogging consistency, I have been REALLY busy the last week although I didn’t have any midterms. I finished my midterms the week before and there weren’t a lot of assignments due. Yet, I was so stressed out that my biggest wish was that the day would have 48 hours. On one hand, I wanted the spring break to come, and on the other hand, I was scared because I needed more time to figure things out for my class. And this class is Public Relations (PR) with Dr. Hamilton. I might have mentioned it[…]

Action Pact and Religions of the World

I have been loving this semester of classes that I’m in as well as the events that I’ve gotten to do through Action Pact, the improv SERVE team that I’m a part of. Friday Action Pact and VOP (Voices of Praise, the singing group that Quinn is a part of) got to work together to put on an awesome show for Heritage Christian Academy’s Father Daughter Banquet. It was a great tag-team event with VOP singing and Action Pact playing some games culminating in a SERVE team showdown lip sinc battle before VOP performed their final set. I love getting[…]

SEMESTER OR QUARTERS📚🗓

Why are colleges set up differently then others? As in, why are some colleges set up as a quarter system, verse’s some are set up as a semester system? What makes them, so, different from one another? Well, the difference, for those that do not know, a semester is 14 to 16 weeks and a quarter is 6 to 8 weeks. There would be 2 quarters for 1 semester. I go back and forth if, I like semesters or quarter systems better. I like that there is only 8 weeks, which makes it crunch time all the time. I also, like,[…]

Top 5 Study Places Around MNU

1. Black Dog I don’t like coffee, so I really enjoy getting the smoothies and chai teal lattes here. They have quality stuff! “Black Dog has the best toast in the universe!

Who Are You Texting? IDK, My BFF Jill…

“God made us best friends because He knew our moms couldn’t handle us as sisters.” -Unknown When I decided to move away from home for college, I didn’t have a best friend to think about. My best friend and I had a huge falling out because she wanted to date my brother and I was unsupportive of that decision. I ended high school with one friend and my heart set on becoming a pioneer. The summer after freshman year, I went home and became the chauffeur for my siblings and their friends, which meant awkward car rides with my brother[…]

Already/ Only Halfway Through

Midterms! We all associate different thoughts with these exams. One might think positively and say it is already halfway done or think the negatively “only halfway through”. Whenever I hear midterms, I happily realize that the class that I am taking only requires two instead of five tests: Midterm and Final. But honestly, it is the busiest and most stressful time, especially in the spring semester. My theory is that teachers as well realize that it is already/only halfway through the semester and they try to make you do all the projects and read all the chapters they don’t want[…]
