English – Steffi, Steffi – English

In my latest Interpersonal Communication assignement, the students were asked to say whether they determine meaning by looking at each word or considering the person, the background, and the context. Normally, I would have answered second, but lately I had some language “accidents” that would suggest that I go by word for word. As a foreigner, it takes a lot of time to really learn a language. The only thing that helps is PRACTICE! Before I came here, I learned a lot about the English language. I learned the grammar, the vocabulary, and the difference between British and American English.[…]

Don’t Go as God for Halloween

Fall break was this week. I vowed to do two things To kickstart a revival of my bible reading habit To get all of my homework done so I could bask in a glorious no-homework, stress-free beginning of my week Let’s just say God may be happier regarding my fall break reading habits than my professors. I didn’t get much homework done. I read my bible and hung out with my friends doing caffeine induced non-study study parties, mall trips, movie nights, and listening to music. In communications studies there is a concept called “reframing” in which the words chosen to describe[…]

Fall Break Hiking Trip

Hey friends! You may have noticed that I did not post on my normal day. Over the fall break weekend I went on a hiking and backpacking trip in Arkansas with Kairos.  Kairos is the college age ministry group that meets at College Church of the Nazarene. They normally take a trip every school break.  They go backpacking during fall break, skiing over winter break, backpacking again over spring break, and white water rafting over summer vacation. Over fall break 22 MNU and JCCC students went to Arkansas and hiked the Ozark Highland Trails. We also peaked  Whiterock Mountain.  I[…]

Sports vs. Theatre — Is There Any Difference?

Whoever said sports and theatre are polar opposites was an idiot. My youngest siblings play multiple sports each. I can’t count how many sporting events I have attended over the years; baseball, basketball, football, softball, and soccer. My oldest younger brother and I are the Fine Arts kids, as well as the brainiacs. I can tell you how many performances or quiz meets my siblings have sat through; less than 10. Now, I’m not wanting the excuse, “They just aren’t into that kind of stuff”. Well, I’m not into watching sports all day, but I do it. It’s called being[…]

SO MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE I’VE BEEN HOME.

I still remember the day I left for college. My mom kissed me and told me to not constantly call her (I think she was kidding.) My father who had already prayed for me at least six times in the past five minutes asked if we had prayed yet. I got in the car with my roommate and started our voyage to college. The further we drove the smaller everything got until it was all gone. But what my little enthusiastic freshman mind didn’t know yet was that things were never going to be the same.  Its mid-term now and[…]

Hey guys! I hope everyone passed midterms! It’s another week down, and this week I’m skipping the video entry to write out my thoughts for y’all! Whaaaaaat 🙂 So college has been one heck of an adventure so far and we’re only three months in. I wanted to provide future, and current students, with some helpful advice -academic and otherwise- that will help you get through your first year and years to come. So without further ado, here are some lessons that might last a lifetime. Create new networks! Make connections with friends, reach out to new people…don’t be afraid![…]

October Is National Hate Your Roommate Month?

6:30 am.. My roommate’s alarm goes off for no apparent reason. I turn around and try to get 10 more minutes of sleep because every minutes is valuable. Next thing I know she is jumping on my bed! I don’t know if you heard about this, but one of my roommates posted an article, called “October Is National Hate Your Roommate Month!”, in our groupchat, and it really made me think. We all hit that critical time of the year when we want to escape from our room and our roommate(s), but in reality we love them to death, right? Right? The first[…]

KT’S HOMECOMING WEEK RECAP

Hey! So, last week was Homecoming Week here at MNU… which means every night is filled with fun, friends, and free food. 🙂 Here’s a quick recap of the events that I attended.

It’s basically a bunch of fun dancing, donuts from the Louisburg Cider Mill, root beer, and the crowning of the class princes and princesses!
