Already/ Only Halfway Through

Midterms! We all associate different thoughts with these exams. One might think positively and say it is already halfway done or think the negatively “only halfway through”. Whenever I hear midterms, I happily realize that the class that I am taking only requires two instead of five tests: Midterm and Final. But honestly, it is the busiest and most stressful time, especially in the spring semester. My theory is that teachers as well realize that it is already/only halfway through the semester and they try to make you do all the projects and read all the chapters they don’t want[…]

Trapping the Mouse

This last weekend I got the opportunity to play Mollie in Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era England and is probably my favorite show I have been in. The hair and makeup alone for this production was so incredibly fun. It took almost two hours for me to get fully ready with my makeup, hair, and costuming. Quinn and I had a lot of fun with it though. I just thought I’d share some of our pictures from dress rehearsal week as well as some pictures of the actors and the set.     This[…]

Taking a break from community, but not breaking away from it.

I love being around people. I love all the sharing that goes on. From sharing stories, frustrations, weird dreams, class discussions, passions, desires, who’s cute, who’s not, the list goes on and on. I believe community makes us better for each other. But could there also be a season of cutting back on people time, and increasing solitude time. In the book of Ecclesiastes King Solomon has reached old age, and writes what I would call a  “this is what I’ve learned” book. His guidance sound much like one a grandfather would give his grandchildren. My favorite chapter in the book,[…]

10 Questions College Students Are Tired Of Hearing

Hey friends! So I have been thinking lately and I have no idea what I want to do with my life.  I am majoring in sociology and I have some ideas about what I want to do, but I have not fully committed to anything.  I am only 21!  Sometimes I tell myself that I am young and I have plenty of time.  But other times I feel so old and that if I do not figure this out soon, I am going to die sad and miserable!  I was asked a few days ago what I am majoring in[…]

Discovering the MidWest Part I

I made it a challenge to myself to see as much of the USA as possible. I love travelling and I love adventures! Of course, I am limited to my college student budget as well as to my ability to go places and the terms of my school semesters and soccer. That is no reason though to stay in the room and just complain (which became quite expensive to me lately because of the challenge). Therefore I planned to discover the surrounding. It is fascinating how many places I already found that even locals didn’t know about. I completed the[…]

Diversity: The Road to a Smarter Church

Dr. Cindy Peterson, one of my Communication professors, posted an article on our “Decision Making in Small Groups” class Moodle site entitled “How Diversity Makes Us Smarter” published by Scientific American. Around this same time that she did this, Dr. Dean Flemming talked to my Book of Acts class about diversity in the church. Learning these two things side by side, along with this being Black History Month, got me thinking…why can’t we combine these two concepts? The article mentioned above basically states that a good mixture of factors such as race, age, sex, and background bring a variety of different[…]

I Have Car Troubles Regularly

Hey friends!  Let me just tell you a little bit of the awful time I had Thursday.  I have the worst time with cars and have car troubles regularly.  In October I wrecked my car and totaled it.  I have had multiple flat tires, ruined many break pads, and hit many, many mailboxes. So my most recent fiasco all started last Wednesday night.  At dinner Amanda asked if she could see my phone.  She does this thing where she will ask to see something, and once the person hands it to her she immediately throws it over her shoulder.  I[…]

DEAR ME, IT’S ME CALLING.

I’m going to ask you to do something very gutsy. I want you to close your eyes. Okay, not literally close them. Travel down memory lane with me, and think about freshman you. Think about the list of things you were looking forward to. Think about the things you were nervous or afraid about. Think about all the things you learned. And then imagine with me if I gave you four quarters, and told you to call up your freshman self, and give them one advice, what would that be? Then I handed you four more quarters, and told you[…]

KT’s Class Life

I’m in a lot of interesting business and marketing classes this semester, so I thought I would just briefly explain what I’m learning in all of them! I promise it’s not boring stuff. 😉 Consumer Behavior: In this marketing class, we are learning about consumer buying behavior any how that affects the way businesses should market to it’s customers. We are currently working on a project where we have to go to a store, evaluate people’s buying behaviors, and give suggestions to the company about how they can improve their marketing strategy. It’s a really interesting and challenging project… but[…]
