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[…]

Advice for college

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. Thursday night: Hoedown The Hoedown is something I look forward to every year. 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! Friday night: Bonfire/Buck Night This year, ASG decided to do a giant bonfire at one of the football practice fields and then gave every student free food at the Buck[…]

How to Make Friends with the Awkward Dinosaur

One question that I get asked all the time is, “Renee! My goodness, you are a college student now, what ever is your major?” I reply with “Good Sir or Madam, I am a double major in “Bible and Theology” and “Communications”. I love it very much.” To which they reply, “Good heavens! What an unusual combination! What ever do you plan to do with your life?” And they receive from me a blank look of alarm because despite my air of cool collectedness I am quite uncertain of my path in life. This fact never really bothers me unless[…]

▿ Recognize the Good in Your Life ▿

#GRATITUDE “God blesses you to become a blessing. When he gives you a gift, it is because he trusts you with it. He hopes you turn around and do something powerful with it.”                                                          – Anonymous    Throughout life God blesses us. These blessings are gifts. These gifts can be a wide variety of many things, from a challenge we have to overcome, learn from, start over, accept, appreciate, be thankful for, etc. He[…]

When Your Best Friend Is A Snapchat Master

Hey friend!  So I have a feeling that most of you have the app Snapchat or even heard about it if you don’t have the app on your phone. It’s a great way to communicate and keep up with people that is fun and creative.  But I think it’s safe to say that my best friend Chelsea is a Snapchat master. She has conquered the art of Snapchat. Chelsea can take a selfie and turn it into something beautiful.  Here are a few examples!   And if you’re lucky, she may even let you be her work of art. As[…]

Wonderin’ If it’s even worth the chase

Well I’m wonderin’ bout the road ahead of me, Wonderin’ bout the things you said to me, Wonderin’ if these dreams will ever do. And I’m wonderin’ bout the way I spend my days, Wonderin’ if it’s even worth the chase, Wonderin’ if there’s still a need from you.” These lyrics are from a old song by TobyMac called Wonderin’. Lately, I’ve not only found myself listening to it constantly, but relating to the idea of wonderin. A point most of us find themselves in more often than we would like to admit. As college students we come in knowing[…]

Dream Jobs…Take 2

If you know anything about me, you know that I want to be an actress. Not just any old actress, but a Broadway star, the next BIG THING, the next Idina Menzel or Sutton Foster, the next legend. And if you know me, you’ll know that I won’t stop until I reach my dreams. This weekend, some friends and I were hanging out at the Renaissance Festival (Ren Fest for short), and I made the comment, “I’d love to work here”. So I started thinking, “If someone put a gun to my head and told me that I could never[…]

A Dream coming true!

Hugging, players who are crying, and a coach running to his seniors with the words: “Can you believe this?” That is what our team experienced yesterday at Benedictine. It was the sixth game into conference – usually nothing special except for the fact that the women soccer team has never beaten that team before. Our coach, Skelly Kellar, prepared us really well. Within one day of practice, we went over all their strengths and weaknesses. It was so important that I ignored school completely for two days. And there it was: the day of the fight. Last year, they kicked us out in[…]
