Christmas Break Wrap Up

Hello friends So Christmas break is coming to a close and I definitely have mixed feelings about it.  I am ready to see friends and be back at school… I might not be ready for the “school” part of things.  Anyways I had a great Christmas break and I hope you all did too! Here are some of the highlights: I got to meet our pastor’s new baby!     Mayors Christmas tree! Quality time at grandmas.   Crazy outings in freezing cold weather… Not our smartest plan       Some more quality time with my church’s college small[…]

January 5th, 2015

Hey guys. This post will be a very serious one and forgive me it’s long. As my fellow bloggers have posted already, the MNU community lost a beautiful young lady who was a bright star shining on our campus. Personally, I didn’t know her but I have seen through her friends that she was an absolute joy to be around and from her pictures she was always smiling. Although I did not know her, I do know how this goes and my deepest empathies go out to the community. Today is the day in which we are saying our “see[…]

A Bright Yellow House

Hello friends Well if you are involved or know anyone in the MNU community, you possibly will know of the recent tragedy that has left many people with heavy and burdened hearts.  One of MNU’s dearest went to be with Jesus a couple days ago.  When heartbreak, tragedy, and trials come our way a mix of emotions rise.  There is confusion.  There is hurt.  There is anger.  There is shock.  All of which are logical and acceptable emotions.  In the past I haven’t always thought that my grieving mix of emotions were acceptable to God.  But that is simply not the[…]

God’s Timing

I’ve always wondered what God is thinking when something tragic happens that cannot be explained. Does he know that it will affect numerous people and will affect them for the rest of their lives? Maybe there is another reason. When tragic things happen, maybe he is teaching a lesson or maybe there is a specific purpose beyond what Earthly eyes can see. Death. How can someone explain death? Yes the definition of death is the action or fact of dying or being killed, but I think death is beyond its definition. I think death has the ability to rock someone’s[…]

Home Sweet Home

Hey readers! I hope you had a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year and if you didn’t eat lots of food, you didn’t do the holidays quite right but that’s okay. Break has already been flying by! I love being home and it’s nice to have an entire month to relax and be with family. Leaving my MNU friends was pretty difficult, though. I will admit I cried just a little bit. Actually a lotta bit but let’s not tell anyone. Me and my homies ate at Chick-fil-a right before we all headed home as a last hoo-rah before break which was nice.[…]

3 Resolutions Everyone Should Have

“Lose weight.” “Go to the gym.” “Floss.” “Save more money.” Those are some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions I’ve heard, and I can definitely say those have made my list in the past years. While those are not bad things to want to accomplish, I’ve always found myself abandoning those resolutions less than a month into the New Year (and I know I’m not alone in that). 2014 was an interesting year. I learned more about myself than I have in any other season of my life. I went part-time at my high school in the beginning of[…]

Happy Holidays…

  Hey guys, I hope you guys had a great christmas and you guys are enjoying your holidays. I’m not going to lie, I DEFINITELY AM. It is amazing to be back home. There is only one problem… My mom isn’t here. She went back to Kenya to see the family, this is one of the few times where I’m not able to spend Christmas without my mom. Don’t you worry though I was still able to talk her as much I possibly can. Also as many of you would agree, the best part of the holidays is being able[…]

The Dos and Don’ts of Thrift Shopping

Hey guys! The past few years, thrift shopping has become a serious hobby of mine. Here’s a list of my personal DOS and DON’TS when it comes to thrift shopping. 🙂 DO: Buy these… Flannel Flannel takes up a significant portion of my closet and none of it was bought new. Thrift stores ALWAYS have plenty of flannel (especially in the men’s section). Mugs I have found the strangest mugs at thrift stores (and yes, I bought them). Goodwill sells all their mugs for 49 cents, which is a steal if you ask me. My philosophy is “a girl can[…]

Pros and Cons of Winter Break

Hey everyone! Hoping you had a great week. School for the fall semester has come to a close at MNU, and there are several things this can bring about. One of my friends told me that to figure out if you like something or not, you can make a pros and cons list. So, I’m making a pros and cons list of winter break. (Let’s start with the cons, I still want this to be positive) CONS: -Don’t see some friends for a whole month -It’s SO cold -Get togethers -Money is TIGHT -Buying books -Tough upcoming semester (for me[…]

My Favorite Christmas Albums

As y’all know (or should know), I love music. A lot. If I could marry music, I would… but I cant, so I just listen to it all the time instead. I always love the day after Thanksgiving because it’s the day that I get to put all my Christmas music back onto my iPhone and start listening to my Christmas playlist on Spotify. I love Christmas music, but sometimes I struggle finding the good stuff. In case that’s you this holiday season, I’ve put together a short list of my favorite albums this Christmas season. I hope you’ll take[…]
