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[…]

THE CURE FOR MNU’S SINGLENESS IS HERE

Our university is under attack. Our greatest enemy is greater than running out of toilet paper, your  8am class, getting busted for staying later for open dorms, and even bigger than finals. What’s bigger than all of that? The large epidemic of singleness that has prolonged its visit upon our campus. We have been called to “be fruitful and increase in number; to multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” (Genesis 9:7) (After we ring by spring first, of course). But how can we ring by spring if there is such a big gap between the guys and girls[…]

What’s With The Squeaky Dryer?

“What’s with the squeaky dryer?” “I don’t know, but at least my clothes are dry.” I know it sounds like the worst anti-joke ever, but it’s true*. These are the kinds of things that happen in a round of improvisational theatre. Now, that joke has never been used, but weird stuff is always being said or acted out with my team. Like the time we put Justin in the ceiling of the library. And that’s exactly what happened at the last MNU Coffeehouse. We literally brought the roof down, and some french fries from McDonald’s. And here we are, less[…]

What they don’t tell you about the last weeks of school

24 days left! That doesn’t sound much, does it? My motivation? Summer, travelling, and going home! BUT there are other things that should get my attention, too. So don’t make the same mistake I did last year. The ugly truth is that fall semester basically started already. We had to choose our classes and meet with advisors. All these things seem pretty unimportant when you are in the only-24-days-left-until-break-mode. So here my three advices of what mistakes to avoid during Spring Semester, so your transition to fall is less difficult. Apply to classes on time Don’t wait until the last[…]

When all you need is love but all you have is work

You know there’s a problem when you trudge up the steps of Smith on a Monday morning after having slept for three hours, get to the top of the stairs, realize your 9am class is on the bottom floor, walk down the stairs, realize you’re having small group Bible studies in place of class…and yours is happening in your office…on the top floor, so you sigh and accept your fate and trudge back upstairs only to realize that you left your backpack in the bathroom…downstairs. There is no amount of coffee in the world that can solve April. On top[…]
