Aldi vs. Wal-Mart

Awhile ago, I posted a Facebook status asking my college aged friends to give me a list of products they shop for frequently. I took this list, narrowed it down to 19 items, and went to to Aldi and Wal-Mart to compare prices. As a college student, I know I’m very conscious about price when it comes to buying weekly groceries and toiletries. I’ve always heard that Aldi is cheaper than Wal-Mart when it comes to buying off brand items, so I wanted to do the research myself to see if that was actually true. So… here is a list[…]

It Isn’t Over Until the Finals are Graded

Here we are, in the final stretch of the semester, and everyone is ready to start their summers, but there’s one last hurdle to be jumped: finals. Finals are the bane of every college student’s existence, this is just a known fact. What isn’t known is that finals are also the professors least favorite time of year.  I know we’re all stressed and think our professors purposefully plan all the tests for the same week and they want us to fail, but trust me, at least at MNU, our professors want us to pass as badly as we do. We[…]

What Jesus Has Taught Me This Semester

This semester has been one of immense spiritual growth (which is just like any other semester at MNU). I’ve learned a lot about my myself and who Jesus is through the many experiences and opportunities I’ve had this semester. I’ve been reflecting on what I’ve learned recently, so I thought I’d share a few things in hopes to encourage you or bring a new perspective to you. The most significant/memorable thing that Jesus has taught me this semester can be summed up in three words: Just love people.  Simple, right? The new millennial wave of Christianity says this all the[…]

My three best stress relievers

Finals week is coming closer. Every day there is a tension between begging for the break to come closer and wishing the day had more hours to get assignments done. What should we do when the pile of papers keeps growing, the desktops of our computers are full of files, the printers in the library are overloaded with print jobs, and you skip sleep and food for meetings and Kresge Center visits. Stress gives you headache and even the care boxes of your mom won’t help anymore. Then it’s time for a stress reliever. In my case, I can suggest[…]

Action Pact takes to the road

This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]

Take A Break

Apologies for posting late this week, but things have been insane here lately. For starters, I literally have had something to do every night this week. Monday night was choir, as usual, Tuesday was my night in Kresge, also as usual. But things got a little crazy starting on Wednesday. Action Pact was asked to do 3 different shows this week alone. We were at Lighthouse Presbyterian in Paola, KS on Wednesday, on campus for MAX on Thursday, and in Cimarron, KS on Saturday and Sunday, followed by our theatre banquet as soon as we returned to campus. Fun fact,[…]

A Tribute To The People I Couldn’t Live Without

This school year has been so much more than I ever could’ve imagined. I have had amazing opportunities I never thought would come. I’ve also had incredible people in my life that equip me to be successful and encourage me to be fully who I was made to be. This blog is dedicated to those people – the ones that I couldn’t live without. 1. My family The first people I couldn’t live without are my family. My mom and dad have always been so encouraging in whatever endeavor I’m pursuing. They have been so gracious to support me in[…]

Summer means _______ (Fill in the blank)

I asked different people on campus to finish the following sentences about summer: Summer means ___________ . One thing about MNU I will miss is ____________ . One thing about MNU I won’t miss is ______________ . The first thing I will do during break is ______________ . My plans for the summer are ____________ . Everyone has different plans and thinks differently about the summer time. Personally, I am not a big fan of summer. Mostly, because I work full time. As you can see, my summer is pretty boring, so let’s see what the rest of MNU does[…]

Have a little Fun, will ya?

I have been learning some valuable lessons about having fun this last week. It seems like it would be easy, like Oh, of course I know how to have fun, don’t you? But in reality, in the middle of the insanity that is April, I found myself focusing on the stress so much that I nearly forgot how to have fun. Tuesday the Sophomore class council threw a Napoleon Dynamite prom.  It was hosted in the tipping point in the Land Gym building on campus. The movie was playing in the tipping point, there were tater tots in the cafe[…]

Unbreakable

Hey friends! One of my favorite Netflix original series is back on!  Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 is back on Netflix and I could not be more excited!  I plan on watching it all this weekend.  After doing so I will give you a little review. Season 1 was pretty good.  The show is about a a woman who is a survivor of a cult.  Kimmy and a few other women were retrieved from a bunker where they lived for over ten years.  Kimmy is now out and living in New York City.  The show follows her and the friends[…]
