Basketball with Tristin

A lot of my blogs and vlogs are about MNU’s fine arts departments like choir and theatre. The cool thing about MNU is that because we are a smaller community I have friends that participate in all different activities at school. Here’s a quick video that I made with my friend Tristin. Tristin is such a cool human being and she has been playing on MNU women’s basketball team  for three years now!

Mountain climbing in the Lake District and Blackpool

Last week we decided that we wanted to go down to the Lake District for the day and climb a mountain/hill. It felt like a mountain, but I think technically it is classified as a hill. Then we were on our way back to NTC and saw a sign for Blackpool and decided to take a detour through there before heading back to campus!

Jobs. Jobs. Jobs!

And so the hunt beings. You can smell the excitement and fear in the air. It is internship application time! Some of us will come out victorious with our dream summer internship to look forward to… others of us will not be quite so lucky. Either way it is well worth the climb. Months ago I put in my application for Starlight Theatre’s summer production intern position. Applications were due at the end of March. Mine was turned in January 15th. This was my second year applying for an inters hip with Starlight. Last year I received an email saying that[…]

The Palindrome of ‘Stressed’

A palindrome is the description of words which can be read forwards and backwards. Have you ever tried reading the word ‘stressed’ backwards? With that being said, it perfectly describes my week. If you look at it from the beginning, it was very stressful. In the end, it turned out to be a really rewarding week. The crazy week I went from taking tests and quizzes to oversleeping, finishing homework assignments on the last minute, and finally a much-needed Easter break. At the end of the week, we had a game against Washburn University. We lost 0-2. Yet, it was[…]

The Peculiar Czech Easter

No matter how many times I describe how the Czechs celebrate Easter, the surprised face of Americans remains the same. Laughingly, I admit it does sound a bit barbarian. In fact, the more I think about it, the more I understand people’s astonishment. To me however, it is just another Czech tradition inherently embedded into my country’s history. In every way, let me try one more time to bring some light into the way how tomorrow in the Czech Republic is going to be like. It is all done on Monday morning between 7AM and 12AM when Czech men have[…]

College is called Uni in the UK?

So there are quite a few words that are different in the UK than what an American would say. There are obviously phrases that Brits say that we would not normally say, but there are also everyday common words that they use but we would say something else. For the most part they are easy to figure out but it is curious how many common words are so different. They can’t understand why we have to make all of our words describe what the object is (for example we have to say bath tub instead of bath because otherwise we[…]

President’s Honors III

My Freshman year This is probably the biggest event on campus. It takes a whole week to set up the gym in cook center and I don’t even want to know how far in advance the organizing crew must start. It is an event where the school has an auction and promotes our students. In return, the attending people invest in our education and make our opportunities to learn and play sports possible. Year by year, it gets bigger and fancier. Our role Our team uses the events to makes some extra money by helping behind the scenes. We prepare[…]

California Trip: A Real Privilege to be a Pioneer

This week, my amazing American experience has gotten another cherry on its top. Together with my teammates, we set out to California to conquer some good performances, granting us tickets to the outdoor nationals in Alabama this summer. The weather was predictably in our favor: after all, we were in Cali. All of us were happy to leave the grumpy and rainy Kansas and finally enjoy some sunshine, which made our performances better! We ran fast, jumped higher, and threw farther, and now we are bringing home some more national qualifiers! After two days of competition, we said goodbye to[…]
