Thanksgiving in Texas

For¬†Thanksgiving break I went with Quinn, my mom, my dad, and my brother to Houston, Texas to visit my family. I thought I would share some of my pictures from the trip ūüôā Friday we went to a University of Houston football game. I know nothing about sports but Quinn and I managed to have fun. It was just great to hang out with family. We drove home Saturday and Sunday. It was great to see family that I hadn’t seen in a while. I decided also to thank God for three main things this year. For my Family. They[…]

No Money Left?

For all my friends who wish the amount on their bank account had at least two digits… In front of the point. How am I supposed to buy something with $0.64 left? I know, I know, it’s all my fault: I wasn’t responsible enough and I didn’t pay enough attention in Personal Finance. If I had known what a college students has to pay for food and entertainment to get over the frustration of homework and classes, I would have started to save money from 6th grade on. I am just kidding. Taking care of money is not easy, especially[…]

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

My all-time favorite Thanksgiving themed “movie” is “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”, and it has been for as long as I can remember. The message is just important to me now as it was when I was a little girl: No matter the circumstances, you should always remember to give thanks for what you do have. Barely 2 minutes into the short film, Charlie Brown’s little sister Sally says the following: “Why should I give thanks on Thanksgiving? What do I have to be thankful for? All it does is make more work for us at school.” and then complains about[…]

Success Mushroom

I can’t sing. I am not a musical person. My friends are musical people but I was not given that gift. I can art…sometimes. People tell me I can art but I won’t attempt to draw something that I’ve never drawn before because people might look at it and realize I’m not very good at arting after all. I am as good of a Christian as I am ever going to be. I have a certain ability to understand and experience God and I should be content with where I am. These were statements that I believed about myself about[…]

MNU Serve Team

[tabs tab1=”Tab 1 Title” tab2=”Tab 2 Title” tab3=”Tab 3 Title”] [tab]Tab 1 Content[/tab] [tab]Tab 2 Content[/tab] [tab]Tab 3 Content[/tab] [/tabs] Hey friends!

The theme[…]

Living ON Campus vs. Living OFF Campus

Living ON¬†Campus: It has its perks, but it also, has its downsides. Being a freshman, it can be super exciting coming in, fresh out of high school, excited to be on your own and have a roommate. You get to meet new people and make new friendships. You get to experience, what it means, to be a true college kid. On this campus, for both, men¬†and women, there are three¬†styles¬†of dorm living. The first style, is the freshman and sophomore dorms. In them, there are one¬†to two¬†roommates per room. They share¬†a community shower with the rest of the hall. The[…]

Phonathon 2015 Recap

A few days ago, all the Phonathon team gathered in our call center for one last time to celebrate our successful year and say goodbye to the nights of calling alumni while playing hangman with each other and coloring with crayons. My second year of working at Phonathon was very different from my first year. This year, instead of calling for the whole campaign, I coached new callers for the first half. Coaching new callers put me in a kind of supervisory role that I‚Äôve been in before in other situations, but never for Phonathon. It was a really great[…]

5 characteristics of a depressed athlete in off-season

Most of you all know that the women soccer season is over. For me, it is the most depressing time of the year for the following reasons: My team is my family. Since we stopped practicing, I have maybe seen half of the girls in the last week whereas I usually see all of them every day. I miss joking around with them and just hearing everyone complain about how terrible certain classes and professors are. There is no 5-v-2 and making fun of the freshmen who have to be in the middle first. There is no playing around with[…]

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[…]
