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[…]

Organizational Behavior Class

As some of you know I am a junior business student. This semester I’m in a class called organizational behavior. In organizational behavior we do all of our projects and tests in groups. That’s right I said tests. Today my group presented to the class and one of our assignments was to create a video together. Below I have attached the video that we created for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy! Elisa Davis

Newcastle 2.0

Two weeks ago I took my second trip down to Newcastle. My friend, Karl, was performing in Durham Cathedral for a youth event that his church was supporting. We decided to go down for the weekend and go to the beach, eat some of the best fish and chips I’ve ever had, and see a few castles! We saw Bamburgh castle which was right on the beach and was near an adorable little seaside town. Then Sunday we headed up to Durham and spent the day there and hung out in the cathedral most of the day.
