Playlists and People

What’s up everybody? Hope everyone had a great week! So tonight I went to a Hunter Hayes concert, and it was SO good. The Railers and Dan+Shay opened for him, and they were both fantastic, even though I had never heard of The Railers before. I know these three don’t fit some people’s definition of country music (it obv has to have something about cars and an unintelligible accent duh) but they were about as country as it typically gets for me. See, I don’t really get to deep into any genre of music, I just like a little of[…]

A Very Special Veteran’s Day

As you all know Tuesday was Veteran’s Day and now matter how you feel about the military, you just have to sit back and admire the sacrifices that they endure everyday to keep us safe, and help us enjoy the freedoms we have today. Just like Coach Willmer told us the other day, “Our freedom isn’t free, somebody else pays for it.” This day is now very special to me, you never really realize how important something is until it hits you personally. For me, this day is about my friend Cory Ellis and his family. It takes a special[…]

5 Things Phonathon Taught Me

For the past six weeks, I’ve been working at the MNU Phonathon. What I thought would just be another job has turned out to double as a ministry and be a place where I’ve met some really great friends. Here’s some things I’ve learned through this experience… 1. You never know where life will take you At Phonathon, I’ve had the great privilege of talking to alumni, parents, and friends of the university that have lived great lives with many unexpected turns. It’s always interesting to hear how God works in people’s lives and leads them to places they never[…]

This is it…. Senior Week…

Wow this it… This game against Avila is my last guaranteed home game in an MNU uniform. It’s very bitter sweet for me. One hand we will outright win the conference this week with a win against Avila but on the other it’s my last home game ever as an MNU pioneer. It’s one the last times I will ever put on the pioneer uniform. I’ve had some great memories here, it’s hard to believe that it’s all coming to an end. The journey to where I am has been long, amazing, frustrating, and many other verbs I can’t really[…]

Baker Week

Aright I want you to picture this, it’s late in the fourth quarter, Baker has driven down to our 3 yard line and they are lining up for a 20 yard field goal. If you know anything about football you know that a 20 yard field is a chip shot for any kicker (well most kickers). The game will be won or lost on this play. George Tombaugh with the call… If there ever was a play that exemplified our season, this is it. Every time it looked like we were down and out, somebody comes up with a huge play[…]

Christmastime in Spin 105

Hello friends! So today I have a little video because well…. We decorated for Christmas!  Yes it’s early, yes it’s ridiculous. The way I see it, we only have 2 weeks of school after Thanksgiving and that isn’t near enough time to enjoy it.  So we went all out early. Also there is some randomness at the end that I cannot explain, literally that is Spindle 105 (#spin105). Anyways have a good week and be filled with the Christmas spirit a “bit” early… Thanks for stopping by Haley

So, funny story real quick. I’m typing on my 3rd laptop since college started. It’s only been 3 1/2 months and I broke my phone and my last 2 laptops were being dumb. I’m praying 3rd times the charm with this laptop because I’m praying to the Lord Jesus I don’t lose everything again. Who doesn’t love technology right? Anywho! I was talking with my RA about posts and strangely enough we ended up talking about Pinterest. So today’s post will be on cool dorm room ideas found on… the one and only PINTEREST. The Ultimate Dorm Room List  […]

Lessons I Learned from Olivia Pope

Hey guys! Okay, so I know that my blogs have been SUPER serious so far, but I promise I’m not usually so boring and depressing.  I wouldn’t say I’m super funny, but I’m certainly not serious all the time. Like, at all.  I am actually a little too sarcastic for my own good, and I like to use my words (usually) to fight my battles, and while your tongue can get you in trouble, it can be the best way to get a point across. I am a huge fan of Shonda Rhimes’ show Scandal on ABC.  You may recognize her[…]

Meet Siska

Hi, friends! During Homecoming week, I decided to sponsor a child through Compassion International, which was one of the best decisions I could have made, but also a very unexpected decision. As a Christ follower who grew up going to lots of Christian concerts, I’ve heard the “sponsor a child tonight” speech countless times. Every time, I would wish that I could, but never did because I didn’t have the money and I thought I was too young. As a member of Rend Collective eased into yet another “sponsor a child tonight” speech at the concert Friday night, I reached[…]
