Counting Down The Days Until Summer

It’s officially April… which means we only have a month of school left… which also means that I’m counting down the days until summer. Ever since coming to college, I’ve spent every summer living and working at Youthfront Camp West. That’s all I’ve really known when it comes to summer. However, this summer I’ll be doing something a little bit different. I’ll be working for Youthfront again, but this time I’ll be doing a marketing internship with them! I’m super pumped about this opportunity to work for Youthfront in a different capacity. It’s going to be great experience for me,[…]

King of All Fruits

Hey friends! So those of you who know me know that I like adventure.  I also really like Asian culture.  So if there is an Asian market, you best know I’ll be there buying all sorts of amazing foods.  A few nights ago, me and my roommate/best friend decided to try something new together.  We wanted to eat the King of All Fruits.  Also known as the Durian Fruit. Drove to an Asian super market that is about 15 minutes from campus to purchase the fruit.  They are rather large fruits.  About the size of a water melon and the[…]

Student Directed One Act Festival

It’s that time again! More theatre performances! This time, there are 6 students (myself and 5 friends) who decided to take a class titled “Directing and Play Production”. And you guessed it! We have to put on a show! Now, you may be wondering, what is a One Act Festival? That’s easy! It’s a group of one acts (or really short plays) that are all performed one after another. This festival only happens every other year here at MNU and it’s quite fun to put on. This year ended up being made up of 6 comedies, “Check, Please” (Jonathan Rand),[…]

Easter in the eyes of a child

Coming from Spring Break is always kind of difficult for me for the following reason. First, no one likes it when a break is over and the work starts again, but there is also another thing that bothers me and that is when people ask me if I went home for break. To hear all the great stories and adventures from my friends sure is not easy. They talk about how they had homemade meals, surprised their siblings, celebrated with their grandparents, or went on a walk with their dog. I am lucky that I can go back every now[…]

Gratefulness…Outside of November

As Americans and as college students who are privileged enough to be able to attend a private university, I feel that we forgot to be thankful and to count our blessings. I know November is the “Month of Thankfulness” because Thanksgiving is at the end of the month, but why do we just stop with November? We should always be thankful, even for the little things. This week, even though it’s a short one, has been a terrible week and I’m stressed out. I’ve complained about at least one thing every day. But I haven’t stopped to say thank you.[…]

The Joy of On Campus Jobs

One of my favorite things about MNU is the large variety of on campus job opportunities that are provided for students. When I came into college, I had no clue how I was going to handle school and work, or even if I wanted to have a job. When I found out about on campus job opportunities, I decided to apply for a few and see how it went. I ended up being hired as a student caller for Phonathon. I was also hired as a student blogger for the marketing department (which I’m obviously still doing now). I’ve loved[…]

Coming from Spring Break as Champs!

This is one of those unforgettable moments in college life you only experience in the United States. Tonight was crazy and can’t be compared to anything else. The MNU women basketball team is National Champions! I was so happy to be a part of this and watch how our whole school came together as one. I am really proud of the team, especially my roommate Whitney. Watching them start in the fall and working hard even through the breaks, made me realize how much effort they put into the game. They deserve this so much! The fact that we won[…]

Chicago and Championships

Over the break a few friends and I stayed at Jordan’s house in Champaign, IL which we used as a home base for getting to Chicago and exploring the city. We had some mishaps along the way such as losing Levi’s bag on the side of the highway when, wrapped in a trash bag to protect it from rain, it escaped the ties binding it to the roof of our car and didn’t even make it into Missouri. Unfortunately we didn’t realize this had happened until we were a few hours into the trip. Levi handled things really well though[…]

Spring Break Adventures

Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break.  No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret.  Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days.  We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville.  We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville.  The next morning we[…]
