When all you need is love but all you have is work

You know there’s a problem when you trudge up the steps of Smith on a Monday morning after having slept for three hours, get to the top of the stairs, realize your 9am class is on the bottom floor, walk down the stairs, realize you’re having small group Bible studies in place of class…and yours is happening in your office…on the top floor, so you sigh and accept your fate and trudge back upstairs only to realize that you left your backpack in the bathroom…downstairs. There is no amount of coffee in the world that can solve April. On top[…]

Action Pact and Religions of the World

I have been loving this semester of classes that I’m in as well as the events that I’ve gotten to do through Action Pact, the improv SERVE team that I’m a part of. Friday Action Pact and VOP (Voices of Praise, the singing group that Quinn is a part of) got to work together to put on an awesome show for Heritage Christian Academy’s Father Daughter Banquet. It was a great tag-team event with VOP singing and Action Pact playing some games culminating in a SERVE team showdown lip sinc battle before VOP performed their final set. I love getting[…]

SEMESTER OR QUARTERS📚🗓

Why are colleges set up differently then others? As in, why are some colleges set up as a quarter system, verse’s some are set up as a semester system? What makes them, so, different from one another? Well, the difference, for those that do not know, a semester is 14 to 16 weeks and a quarter is 6 to 8 weeks. There would be 2 quarters for 1 semester. I go back and forth if, I like semesters or quarter systems better. I like that there is only 8 weeks, which makes it crunch time all the time. I also, like,[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

The Road to Recovery

The first few days after surgery, all I wanted to do was sleep, sleep, and more sleep. The pain medication, the doctor provided me, made me sleepy within, 30 minutes. I would say by day three or four, the pain was excruciating. So, I made sure to just stay in bed and keep it elevated. Crutches, are for sure, my new cardio. Within the first couple of days, I knew, I had to get my tolerance built up. I did not start actually crutching a lot, until, day five or six; but my arms sore the first few days. The[…]

When School sets your eyes on Jesus

One thing that I absolutely love about MidAmerica is that my professors will lead devotions before class or tie the material that we are learning that day into faith. This has really helped me to see how faith can be applied really everywhere in life. I remember sitting in a Communications Class and discussing how the theory of Cognitive Dissonance relates to the Holy Spirit and personal conviction of sin. It caused me to think about how God uses human psychology at times and how he goes against at other times causing us to know it has to be from[…]

It Has Only Been the 1st Week of School

I love how, on the first day of fall semester, everyone is so excited to start school. Students arrive 3+ days early, setting up their dorm rooms, if they are living on campus. Then fall break comes and everyone is so happy the semester is over! Now, spring semester has began. Everyone is coming back as late as possible. Some students are even arriving on campus a few days after their classes have started. I find this, quite, hilarious. It has only been the first week back, and I am counting down the days, till spring break. It has only[…]

The Awkward Dinosaur Tries New Things

It’s a new semester, a new year, with new classes, a new job, and a time to try new things and start new habits. This week I have begun all sorts of new things. First of all I began my new job as Managing Editor and News Editor of the Trailblazer. I have a new office on campus and brand new coworkers. I got to decorate my office which was awesome and it’s really nice to have a place of my own to get some work done during the day. I’ve been loving my new classes but probably my favorite[…]
