Canceling my travel plans, I thought my Spring break would be a boring bummer. However, this past week turned out to be an amazing time, enabling me to charge up my batteries, explore Olathe’s amusement options, catch up on sleep, and be focused only on Track&Field. Instead of wondering around in New York City, I had decided to stay faithful to Olathe and use spring break as a lazy time, tottering among our track stadium, Olathe wellness center, and my bed. It may sound boring; however, believe me or not, sometimes I prefer boring before exciting because prior to[…]Read More
What a lovely spring break! This year I went to Omaha, NE with my friend Renee just for fun. We visited the Omaha Zoo and Aquarium, went to an improv show, and visited The Old Market.
On Saturday morning we did yoga in the aquarium!

Penguins! Named this one Reginald!
We also visited Bob the Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge is cool because you can stand it both Nebraska and Iowa at the same time!
In all it was a fabulous weekend. For only a three hour drive it was well worth the trip!
As an exchange students, breaks mean that you finally get to go and explore on your own. Although Kansas and MNU is an adventure itself, the real fun begins when I have to book flights and plan trips by myself. It is about the balance of planning in advance and being spontaneous in exploring places I have never seen before. It is also about looking at school from a different perspective. Spring Break 2017 This year, I booked a flight to California -where my boyfriend’s family lives – to visit them. Although I have been there before, there are still[…]Read More
One of the things I was pleasantly surprised with my freshman year was the range of choices in our cafeteria. One can eat healthy all the time; however, plenty of unhealthy temptations are available as well. Being an athlete forces me to avoid the pizza/fries section; although, I would lie if I said that my everyday routine (salad and grilled chicken) makes me as happy as a big bowl of ice-cream or pepperoni pizza would. All of the choices we have beg a question: which one do you prefer? Are you one of those lucky people who can eat junk[…]Read More

Now that I have been living in the United Kingdom for almost seven months now, there are a few different things that I have picked up that you can only recognize when you have lived somewhere for a while that are different from the way we do things in the United States. For the most part I have found that the UK culture is very similar to our own but there are a few minor differences that you can pick up on that just seem strange to an American. 1. Their lemonade is clear and bubbly. Instead of the lemonade[…]Read More
Hey Friends! Check this very short video of our time at an MNU basketball game! We sat (actually stood) in the student section, painted our chests, and cheered excessively. Every sporting event here at MNU is always a blast. Thanks for watching!
This past weekend MNU celebrated 50 years! There were events all weekend long including MNU Theatre Through the Years which was a show with scenes and songs from many of the shows that MNU has performed for the last 50 years. MNU reached out to alumni that had been a part of the theatre department to see if they would return to perform their old roles. The current students filled in the roles that had not be claimed by alumni. There was about twenty alumni who came back to be in the show! With all the people that participated in[…]Read More
Week 19 Vlog. This video highlights my work with the MLK Project and some interesting things happening at my dorm. Songs:Limelight, Michael Howard.
My week has been packed with things which was a pleasant change from being sick for a whole week before that. Instead of writing a ton of words here like usually, I thought I would just post a bunch of pictures to show you what my week was like. I had the idea because MNU’s website has this handy function of showing you a whole week in advance (you just have to chose a certain week). It is really good to print out schedules and see what your classes look like. Also, not only is this blog more interesting than reading, but[…]Read More
