Time for Some Campaignin’

Hoping everyone had a great week! I’ve been very busy lately, working on campaign materials and strategies for the on-campus ASG Executive Cabinet elections.  I am running for Director of Social Life, and there have been many hours and staples put into the process. I’ve made posters, logos, and promo cards for the campaign, and also done lots of planning for the campaign forum tomorrow evening.  Elections are soon, and the entire process has been taxing but extremely fun.   The next (and almost last) thing left in the campaign is the election forum tomorrow evening.  The forum is a[…]

Snowpocalypse

A Non-Snow Day Snow Day: Life Update

Hello friends! If you are confused by the title of this post I understand.  Basically, along with a lot of the Midwest, Kansas City woke up to several inches of snow.  So snow day, but not really because classes weren’t cancelled… However, I have the whole afternoon off (yay) so I am going to pretend this latter half of the day was a snow day.  I don’t know about anyone else, but snowy days make me want to curl up and go into hibernation.  So those are my plans for the day… I am being super responsible  obviously. As I[…]

“Honoring the Past, Shaping the Future”

I mentioned in my blog last week about this cool conference called M15 that I had the privilege to attend. This conference takes place every four years in different places. The fact that it was in Kansas City this year and I was able to go as a freshman was an incredible blessing! My friend Jaque and I left Monday afternoon and headed to downtown Kansas City. MNU took care of most of the costs: hotel, the conference, and lunch on Tuesday. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza hotel. There’s 28 floors to that thing and we were on the 17th. I despise elevators to no end because[…]

Sock Hop

Hey everyone! I hope you’ve all had a great week! I’m gonna show you of an example of a part of my MNU experience that is relatively new, but for which I’m really excited. So, last semester, I was a member of the Social Life committee for ASG, and this semester I’m doing that and I’m the Social Life representative for the sophomore class council. So, part of my duties for that have been to help out with ASG Social Life events!  This week, we had a brand new event planned by Presley Wilson, our student director of Social Life.[…]

Balancing an Unbalanced Life

What does a balanced life look like? I honestly couldn’t tell you, because I don’t have one. I used to think that my life had to be balanced. That I had to have a set schedule. That I had to have everything together. Being in college has forced me to realize that I don’t have to have a balanced life, and certainly that it’s nearly impossible to have one. If I told you my priorities, showed you my calendar, and then you saw how my days actually played out, you would be very confused. But that’s okay, because it used[…]

A Job Opportunity

So just to let you guys know, I have been looking for a job for a while now and I finally go a got found a job that was interested in me enough to have me come in for an interview. The place I’m interviewing at is Heritage Christian Academy, it’s on 159th and Black Bob. I know this is going to sound kinda bad but it’s like MNU, if MNU was high school or middle school.   Heritage Christian was looking for an assistant track coach and I saw the job posting on the job board on the MNU[…]

The Willmer Family

The Willmers are a pretty cool family. You have Coach Willmer  and his wife Lindsay, Emma (12) who is on the left, Addie Joy (10) on the right, Titus (6) who is wearing the Rangers shirt, and the twins Gwenyth & Nehemiah (4). I can honestly say I have never met another family like them. First of all you have the twins Gwenyth & Nehemiah. Gwenyth is a little fireball of energy and don’t worry you’ll see what I mean in the video. She wouldn’t have let me leave her house until I played hide and seek with her and[…]

Finding Joy in the Ordinary

Simple, yet so difficult. Why does our generation struggle with this concept? We get bored, Desensitized to the beauty of creation to the beauty of our loved ones to the beauty of words and learning. Instead our souls are allowed to be filled with junk. We choose to believe what we hear, to believe what we see, to believe what we are told we need, and in this, we forget the joy of discovery. New places and new ideas, or old places and old ideas. We forget what life is about, What joy is to be found. We become satisfied with[…]
