Now that I have been living in the United Kingdom for almost seven months now, there are a few different things that I have picked up that you can only recognize when you have lived somewhere for a while that are different from the way we do things in the United States. For the most part I have found that the UK culture is very similar to our own but there are a few minor differences that you can pick up on that just seem strange to an American. 1. Their lemonade is clear and bubbly. Instead of the lemonade[…]Read More
Hey Friends! Check this very short video of our time at an MNU basketball game! We sat (actually stood) in the student section, painted our chests, and cheered excessively. Every sporting event here at MNU is always a blast. Thanks for watching!
This past weekend MNU celebrated 50 years! There were events all weekend long including MNU Theatre Through the Years which was a show with scenes and songs from many of the shows that MNU has performed for the last 50 years. MNU reached out to alumni that had been a part of the theatre department to see if they would return to perform their old roles. The current students filled in the roles that had not be claimed by alumni. There was about twenty alumni who came back to be in the show! With all the people that participated in[…]Read More
Week 19 Vlog. This video highlights my work with the MLK Project and some interesting things happening at my dorm. Songs:Limelight, Michael Howard.
My week has been packed with things which was a pleasant change from being sick for a whole week before that. Instead of writing a ton of words here like usually, I thought I would just post a bunch of pictures to show you what my week was like. I had the idea because MNU’s website has this handy function of showing you a whole week in advance (you just have to chose a certain week). It is really good to print out schedules and see what your classes look like. Also, not only is this blog more interesting than reading, but[…]Read More
Starting on March 2 and continuing till March 4, the 52nd NAIA Indoor Track National Championship took place in Johnson City, Tennessee. I had the privilege to participate in this great competition alongside with 21 other MNU qualifiers. Many daring expectations and dreams were in our minds. Some of them got fulfilled and some of them remain for upcoming years, keeping us hungry and motivated. I am among those who have a lot to make up for, and I intend to use this outdoor season to prove my true capabilities, paying back some of the fantastic generosity MNU has blessed[…]Read More
This last weekend I decided to take a weekend trip to Brussels, Belgium which is also known as the Capital of Europe! This was my first trip that I have taken alone and it was really nerve wracking at first. Being in a foreign country all on your own where you don’t speak the language is pretty scary, but it is also extremely empowering when you realize that you can navigate around all on your own! I met some really amazing people along the way and even though I took this trip on my own, I was actually rarely alone for most of it! Literally all I ate for those three days was waffles, frites (fries), and chocolate. There was a chocolate shop every five steps you took and every single one of them had samples of chocolate for you to try. I didn’t have any plans coming to Belgium except to get a waffle. It was so worth taking a trip to a foreign country just for their delicious golden waffles- I would totally recommend it!
Enjoy this week’s Vlog as Logan and I continue our quest to get the most out of our college experience. There’s no limit to the possibilities of strange activities and random events that may transpire in this Video. Hope you enjoy!
Kansas weather is as unpredictable as my test scores in Dr. Hamilton’s classes. You never know if you end up with a high somewhere in the 80s or a low around 30 to 40. Especially this month proved to be very unstable in temperatures. For me, it is common to look out of the window, see a grey sky every day and expect rain most of the time. Moreover, you can predict the temperature just by the observations. In Kansas, however, I have learned to at least change twice before leaving the door. First, I look outside and get dressed.[…]Read More
To continue my technology blog from last week, I have decided to reveal another lovely effect of technology combined with simply being gone from home. From my vivid personal experience, I can state that studying abroad has made the relationship with my parents and my sister better than ever. It is almost like the old rumor about marriage I just made up, “the less spouses see each other the less they will drive each other crazy.” So much true in such a short statement, isn’t there? Nevertheless, let’s dive into depicting my beloved sister. I can describe her as a[…]Read More
