Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]

It’s My Turn to Be Brave

It’s funny how a song comes into your life at just the right moment. I know that God has a way of doing that, whether it’s a song by a Christian artist, like “This is the Stuff” or “Beautiful, Beautiful” by Francesca Battistelli, or a more secular song, like “Fight Song” by Rachel Platten, if you need to hear a song, God will bring it into your life, and at just the right moment. I have a list a mile long of songs that have impacted me. This list includes “Christian” music, “Secular” music, and of course, show tunes. Right now,[…]

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! I attempt to blog about newspaper!

When I decided to come to MNU, one of the first things I did was grab one of the newspapers from Bell Center when I went to a choir concert. I’m not even sure I read the whole thing, to be honest, but right from the beginning I knew that an element of my life was going to be wrapped up in this paper. At MNU the paper is called The Trailblazer. The print edition comes out roughly three times a semester, and the online version is usually updated every week. Over the summer I met with the advisor, Melinda[…]

10 Times Liz Lemon Embodied The MNU College Experience

Liz Lemon is a pretty strange woman from the hit TV series 30 Rock.  I think that she perfectly and strangely captures the college experience here at MNU.  I am sure that everyone here has experienced at least one of these Liz Lemon moments. When you can’t figure out how to hook up the cable in your dorm room. 2. When you are looking forward to Glow With The Flow at the end of next semester because you know this year is going to wreck you.                            […]

COLLEGE IS NOT MY HOME

College is fun. College is hard. College is independent. College sometimes feels lonely. College is change. But one of the thing I didn’t realize college became for me until recently was home. I was on my annual walk, which is a day I set once a year to go on a walk. I really hate walking hence why I only do it once a year. I rather sit through a weekend long marathon of Pretty Little Liars than to get up and go on a walk. But I digress from my point. I was on my walk through the campus[…]

Happy Places

Last week, I spent my week with some insane people, doing what we love: performing. We have this warm-up where you close your eyes and go to your happy place. It’s all about focus and relaxation. I always close my eyes and think of the stage, because I am happiest when I’m onstage. I know not everyone feels the came way, so I asked the cast where their happy place was, and in unison, they responded, “Brigadoon!”. I knew they weren’t serious, so I waited until we were at dinner after the show and asked, and a majority of the[…]

Undecided – Which Major should I chose?

The first semester of this year is about to end. Registration for next year’s classes has begun, and many probably think this: “Is this the right major?” Or “Which major should I pick after I am done with my GenEd classes?” This is normal. It is an important decision because you certainly don’t want to spend more than four years in college, collecting a huge amount of student loans to pay off afterwards. Although it will determine what you are going to do after college and which direction your life will take, I always look at it from another perspective.[…]

10 Things That Change After Freshman Year

This is my second year at MNU, and although I’m going to the same school and studying the same thing, it seems vastly different from my freshman year. There are quite a few things that have changed, small and big. Here’s my personal list of things that have changed since freshman year. I hope this can apply to other students besides myself. 🙂 1. The amount of times you eat at Campus Center It’s not necessarily that I eat out more, but I get real tired of the having the same thing for dinner every day. Maybe that’s my fault for[…]

Dating at MNU

For those who don’t know, I have a boyfriend that doesn’t go to MNU. Austin attends Saint Mary’s in Leavenworth, KS (the polar opposite direction of Olathe.) Even though I get to see all these happy couples together on campus, sometimes I’m happy that he doesn’t go to the same university as me. One reason being that he is incredibly competitive with me; the other is that “Ring by Spring” is so real it’s scary. Here at MNU, if you sit with a member of the opposite sex 3 or more times, you are automatically considered dating. Oh my. I[…]

Travel Destination #2 . . . . Hello, St. Louis, Missouri. #tb Here is a Recap of my Halloween weekend. Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween this year! My weekend consisted of meeting up with family and friends on halloween. We ended up attending, a Birthday/Halloween Costume Soiree. I dressed up as a sailor girl, and my best friend, in the picture below, was the king of life guards on duty. After having dinner with family, we were walking back to our hotel and we ran in to Captain America. My night was made complete! Fun Fact: My favorite superhero of all time is Captain[…]
