Introductions and a Miniature Horse named Henry

Hey guys! I am so thrilled to be a student blogger this year! This post is about sharing a little bit of who I am with you. So without further adieu here are 5 of the coolest things I’v done thus far at MNU: 1. Hung out with a Miniature Horse named Henry But  the real joy was watching Josh eat grass alongside a miniature horse named Henry. I feel it is important to note that Josh is an MNU student and not a horse. 2. Wore footie pajama’s to The Cheesecake Factory People were looking at us like we[…]

Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning

Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning? Hello everybody, I know that this is a heavy topic for the first blog, however, I believe that September 11 is worth of our remembrance. Fifteen years ago this very day changed the world. I was just seven years old when two highjacked planes crashed into the World Trade Centre and another one struck the Pentagon building. Still, I remember it vividly. I was sitting in a kitchen, watching TV, not knowing why tears flooded my eyes. All I knew was that somewhere overseas very bad things had happened. I also remember[…]

Simple Ideas to Decorate Your Dorm Room

Welcome (back) to MNU! It is the fourth week into my Junior year and it still feels like it has just started. The reason is that I am probably not ahead of things this year. My suitcase is unpacked on one side of the room, the walls are empty, and the space for my school stuff and books is empty. Oops! But this post is less about me being unprepared and not a good example-setter, but about some tips I have for you. It could help you when you are out of ideas for decorating your dorm room. So I went[…]

30 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A PIONEER AND NOT A SETTLER!

[three_fifth_last][/three_fifth_last] Guys, it’s time! Time to separate the reals from the fake, the Queen B’s from the Kardashians, the Pioneers from the settlers. This is what makes you a pioneer! Hopefully you can Identify and enjoy! If you’ve never had a conversation with Pope St. John, and not laugh or smile then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never texted your home girl (or homie) to come open the door for you, because you stayed out past curfew then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never had to squeeze six people into an individual study room, because all the group[…]

Moving Out & Moving On

I was quite busy the last week to organize all my things. Although I consider myself as still living at home, I collected an incredible amount of things over the past two years and I had to find a way to store them all. Smarter than last year, I did not want to get a storage unit because it is pretty expensive and you either must have a big car or enough gas to drive several ways. So I cannot recommend that; I tried it last year, but there are other ways. My one roommate for example asked her coaches[…]

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[…]
