So there are quite a few words that are different in the UK than what an American would say. There are obviously phrases that Brits say that we would not normally say, but there are also everyday common words that they use but we would say something else. For the most part they are easy to figure out but it is curious how many common words are so different. They can’t understand why we have to make all of our words describe what the object is (for example we have to say bath tub instead of bath because otherwise we[…]Read More
We’re back at it again! We had the opportunity to capture the 2017 President’s Honors Banquet. Enjoy!
My Freshman year This is probably the biggest event on campus. It takes a whole week to set up the gym in cook center and I don’t even want to know how far in advance the organizing crew must start. It is an event where the school has an auction and promotes our students. In return, the attending people invest in our education and make our opportunities to learn and play sports possible. Year by year, it gets bigger and fancier. Our role Our team uses the events to makes some extra money by helping behind the scenes. We prepare[…]Read More
This week, my amazing American experience has gotten another cherry on its top. Together with my teammates, we set out to California to conquer some good performances, granting us tickets to the outdoor nationals in Alabama this summer. The weather was predictably in our favor: after all, we were in Cali. All of us were happy to leave the grumpy and rainy Kansas and finally enjoy some sunshine, which made our performances better! We ran fast, jumped higher, and threw farther, and now we are bringing home some more national qualifiers! After two days of competition, we said goodbye to[…]Read More
As some of you know I am a junior business student. This semester I’m in a class called organizational behavior. In organizational behavior we do all of our projects and tests in groups.

Two weeks ago I took my second trip down to Newcastle. My friend, Karl, was performing in Durham Cathedral for a youth event that his church was supporting. We decided to go down for the weekend and go to the beach, eat some of the best fish and chips I’ve ever had, and see a few castles! We saw Bamburgh castle which was right on the beach and was near an adorable little seaside town. Then Sunday we headed up to Durham and spent the day there and hung out in the cathedral most of the day.

Have you ever referred to your life as a chaotic mess of busyness? I have, which is why last week I had decided to conduct a little research. I was constantly hearing about those invisible people with no social life, who are either at school or at the library, drilling anatomical definitions into their super-smart brains. I wanted to see in real life how busy their schedules actually were, and so I asked my nursing-major friend to describe her usual day. “How different from my schedule could it be?” I braggingly asked myself. Well, when she started her story with,[…]Read More
