Does love at first sight exist?

Recap: Many studies have been done to test the mathematical factors of true love.  In this video I talk about a few studies I researched and found interesting. With all religion aside, what’s your best chances of finding the “one”? To watch a few TedTalks on the topic…click HERE…or HERE P.S. I’ll apologize in advance for the dancing at the end. 🙂 I hope every one has a GREAT winter break & spends time with the ones they love.

Fall Semester Is Almost Over 📚

There are only two weeks left of our fall semester. We call this period of the semester “crunch time.” This is where a lot of students are trying to do anything and everything to get their letter grade from a B to an A; or for those students struggling to pass that tough class, with a C or better. This is when, students start asking their professors for extra credit, or if there is anything else they can do to get their grade up. A biology professor of mine, ounce said . . . “Why would I trust and spend my hard earned[…]

The Space Between

Hey friends! We are in the home stretch. These next few weeks are going to be tough and stressful for a lot of us.  I know they definitely will be for me!  For me, it’s been a little rough getting back in the groove coming back from Thanksgiving break.  It was like a strange teaser for the moment we all are waiting for…Winter break!   The end of the semester! All the anticipation and excitement isn’t really helping with trying to study for finals and finish all those long term assignments that have been put off to the very last[…]

A LISTENING GOD

    The semester is winding down rather quickly. We made some new friendships, and ended some old ones. We surprised even ourselves with how well we did academically, or maybe we learned we should and will do a lot better than we did next semester. We ate a lot because college fifteen comes for the weak. We accepted eight hours of sleep five days a week is only a dream. We learned how to cope with how poor we felt every time we left the cashier’s office. A lot of things happened this semester. You learned a lot, well[…]

Auditions and Callbacks and Cast Lists..Oh My!

This week was tough. I know finals are coming up, but those are nothing compared to auditions. Even though it’s December and we’re about to leave for Christmas break, we are already getting ready for the spring play. This year MNU is doing “The Mousetrap” by Agatha Christie in the Sunderland Black Box Theater. I love that our theatre department continues to do well-known, classical shows, but I hate that they all have such small casts. “The Mousetrap” has a cast of 8 — 5 guys and 3 girls, however, 20 people arrived for auditions — 6 guys and 14 girls.[…]

Thanksgiving aka “Erntedankfest”

“Erntedankfest” is the best German translation I could come up with for this American holiday. It means fest of thanking the harvest. We barely celebrate it anymore, since agriculture has lost its importance. Celebrating it again and in an American style was therefore really exciting for me. Like last year, my roommate, Denise, took me home with her to Omaha, Nebraska. I was really glad that I was invited because I wouldn’t have known what to do on Campus all by myself. Especially after so many people asked me “Are going home for Thanksgiving? Do you even celebrate it?” or[…]

Black Friday In KC

Growing up in Kansas City was something that I didn’t value much as a kid, but now I’m extremely proud to be apart of this city. I enjoy everything about it, including its not-so-great parts. An example of this would be Black Friday. Literally a few hours after we celebrate with our families about how thankful we are, we all rush to Walmart and Target to spend last weeks paycheck and fight people to the death for those 1000 thread count sheets that are half price. HALF PRICE! This is not foreign to me. Since I was 16, I worked[…]

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 🙂 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[…]
