30-DAYS-NO-COMPLAIN-CHALLENGE

It is really hard to share an apartment with so many people and sometimes we have a difficult time loving each other. One forgets to take out the trash, the other one leaves her dishes on the counter… But It is easy to complain about it. This is over now (or at least for 30 days)! Some of us signed a contract for the 30-day-no-complaint-challenge which says that we all can’t complain starting February 11th. We will have a score board in our room to keep track of how many complaints each person has. At the end of the challenge, every[…]

Being Sick in College

This past week, I’ve been sick. The worst kind of sick I’ve been since being in college. It’s lasted for 7 days and counting. It started out being a stomach bug and then turned into a terrible cough/cold. I have no clue what’s going on, but lemme tell ya, being sick away from home is not fun. BUT, people at MNU are awesome and have helped in making it not as bad as it could be. I had to miss class for a day, so when I e-mailed all my professors, they told me to rest up and get better.[…]

When School sets your eyes on Jesus

One thing that I absolutely love about MidAmerica is that my professors will lead devotions before class or tie the material that we are learning that day into faith. This has really helped me to see how faith can be applied really everywhere in life. I remember sitting in a Communications Class and discussing how the theory of Cognitive Dissonance relates to the Holy Spirit and personal conviction of sin. It caused me to think about how God uses human psychology at times and how he goes against at other times causing us to know it has to be from[…]

Surgery is Near

The start of my MNU Track and Field career, has taken a turn. What may, some days, feel like a set back, is actually a step forward in the right direction. It has been a while since, I have talked about track and the new team on campus. This last fall, I was hit with some, saddening news. The news was, that, I was going to need surgery on both my ankles; if I wanted to continue running, and be able to walk in the future. Towards the end of last semester, I found out that my season had come to an[…]

Ask The Trailblazer

Hey everyone! So, if you didn’t know, I’m video editor for The Trailblazer at MNU. This semester, we’re trying something we’ve never done before. We’re launching a video series called “Ask The Trailblazer,” where students can submit anonymous questions regarding anything (yes, anything) about MNU. Then, The Trailblazer chooses questions to find the answers to. The videographers find the right people to interview, and get the answers to the questions you’ve always wondered, or the questions you’re too worried about asking in public. We’re hoping to launch our first video in the next week or so. I’m really excited about[…]

Theatrical Escapades at MidAmerica

This has been kind of an insane week for me. This is mostly because I am now a part of four shows at MNU and all four were a part of my week this week. Mousetrap I am super excited for Mousetrap! It is a show written by one of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era London. I play Mollie who owns a guest house with her husband, Giles. The play begins with the opening of their guest house and as the play continues the audience sees how the young couple’s big[…]

A New Job

It took me one and a half year to realize that I need a job. I knew that I was short on money after I saw what kind of books were required, but finding a job and organize it with my schedule took way longer. As an international student, you have to take different steps before you can get enrolled for a job on campus. The golden rule if you don’t want to be deported is: DO NOT WORK OFF CAMPUS! I only have a student visa which means I can’t make money unless it happens while being involved with[…]

My Hymn For The Weekend

Hey friends! I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing.  I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago. Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping.  For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those[…]
