For my last vlog, instead of a travel video I decided to do one about the differences between the UK and the US. I know I’ve written a couple of blogs about the differences, but this way you get to hear the Brits opinions as well. This whole vlog is extremely chaotic, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t get to explain any difference fully because I kept getting interrupted, but you will get the just of it hopefully. Also, in case anyone was curious, I had to put the MNU logo in because some people, were doing inappropriate motions. It took us forever to actually get something that would sort of work, but we got there in the end. I am so grateful for having these vlogs to remember my time at NTC because without a doubt it has been the best year of my life. Cheers to everyone who has kept up with these because I know there was a lot. Honestly, if you ever get the chance to study abroad do it. I have learned so much about the UK culture, about the US culture that I had no idea about, and about myself. Studying abroad will change your life.
Every semester there is that one class you hate and love at the same time. For me, professor Hamilton is usually the common denominator, representing such class on my schedule. His classes are very challenging yet fun and practical. Today, I would like to share my experience with the Communication in the Digital World course, which has been another terrific class, combining theoretical knowledge with practical skills. Besides all the interesting information about relationships in the digital world, communication theories, and the Internet, we have learned how to create a website from scratch. Usually for me, team-work projects are a[…]Read More
Every year the theatre professors at MNU host a beautiful Theatre Banquet in Bell. It is held at the very end of the school year and awards are given out. But the main reason MNU students get giddy with excitement about the theatre banquet is that at the banquet they announce next school years shows. Its a big ordeal and we go all out for it. This years banquet theme was Masquerade…
Here’s an adorable picture of some of the gals getting ready in the green room before the banquet.
You’re still scrolling because you wanna know what next years shows are don’t you?? Well hold on a second I’ve got more fabulous pictures…
I love this picture because it is with my two freshman that helped me with my baking with freshman vlog a couple months ago. Dana and Christian are on MNU’s impov team with me and Christian was in BOTH shows this past school year!
This year I was honored to receive the award for Outstanding Performance for the role of Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Other awards given out this year were: Outstanding Improviser, Freshman of the Year, Rookie Performance of the year, Techie of the Year, and the Senior Spotlight Award.
I am so excited for next years show! Seriously y’all they are gonna be so good! In the fall we are doing a community wide version of Into the Wood and in the Spring we are doing Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare in our Blackbox Theatre. I, being a musical theatre geek, am ecstatic about Into the Woods. I cannot wait to get started with that show!
This weekend was the calmness before anxiety and stress hits you in the last week. I did absolutely nothing – at least nothing that was related to any kind of due date. I just enjoyed the beautiful spring at MNU and relaxed with friends. Friday My friend, Mo, made me watch a scary movie with her at the AMC and I spent the most time covering my eyes. When we came back, we watched even more movies, and this continued throughout the whole weekend. I finished a whole season of my favorite show and all the Hobbit movies. Saturday I[…]Read More
It has become a tradition for us, international students, to meet at the end of the school year and celebrate that we are one step closer to our bachelor’s degrees. This year, me and other students from thirteen different countries met thanks to our wonderful counselor for international students Melissa Miller and her amazing family. In the middle of school craziness, we rarely have time for any small talks. Luckily, events like this help to remind us where we come from, and how blessed we have been by the opportunity to become Pioneers. Wherever we get together, the place immediately[…]Read More
This week at MNU the campus hosted an event called MAX. This event is one that i had a lot of fun going to as a high school student. Students come from all across the district to participate in a wide variety of events. This year we hosted around 700 students!
A lot of my blogs and vlogs are about MNU’s fine arts departments like choir and theatre. The cool thing about MNU is that because we are a smaller community I have friends that participate in all different activities at school. Here’s a quick video that I made with my friend Tristin. Tristin is such a cool human being and she has been playing on MNU women’s basketball team for three years now!
Last week we decided that we wanted to go down to the Lake District for the day and climb a mountain/hill. It felt like a mountain, but I think technically it is classified as a hill. Then we were on our way back to NTC and saw a sign for Blackpool and decided to take a detour through there before heading back to campus!
And so the hunt beings. You can smell the excitement and fear in the air. It is internship application time! Some of us will come out victorious with our dream summer internship to look forward to… others of us will not be quite so lucky. Either way it is well worth the climb. Months ago I put in my application for Starlight Theatre’s summer production intern position. Applications were due at the end of March. Mine was turned in January 15th. This was my second year applying for an inters hip with Starlight. Last year I received an email saying that[…]Read More
A palindrome is the description of words which can be read forwards and backwards. Have you ever tried reading the word ‘stressed’ backwards? With that being said, it perfectly describes my week. If you look at it from the beginning, it was very stressful. In the end, it turned out to be a really rewarding week. The crazy week I went from taking tests and quizzes to oversleeping, finishing homework assignments on the last minute, and finally a much-needed Easter break. At the end of the week, we had a game against Washburn University. We lost 0-2. Yet, it was[…]Read More
