THIS WEEK/LAST WEEK HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY CRAZY!!
I feel like I have one homework assignment or project or paper or even test after another. It was definitely a crazy busy week.
Today I have a Business Communication project with three of my friends Clair Plummer, Caleb Mingus and Drake North. Our project was about bringing a Braum’s (a fast-food place) to Olathe. We had to have a 10-12 minutes speech but got to choose our own topics. My topic was about the human resource and hiring part of building a new restaurant. We totally rocked it and may have even let out a few laughs and yells when it was over.
Tomorrow I am going to Lansing Correctional Facility (a prison) for my Human Resource Management class. We are teaching a two-hour class to inmates that will be getting out within the next 3-6 months. I am really excited about his project. I have always had a passion for prison inmates and being involved in their lives. In my future I hope to be a Deputy Warden or work in the Re-entry program.
Last Thursday our volleyball team played Baker, one of our biggest rivals. It was for the number one spot in the HACA conference. ASG did a tailgate for this game, which was absolutely phenomenal, and we had such a great turn out. We did #thinkpink shirts because this month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We also had chick-fil-a sandwiches (they didn’t invent the chicken, just the chicken sandwich!!) and did a volleyball tournament with a change to win $120 worth of gift cards. Of course we crushed Baker with a 3-0 win. One of my best friends Becca is a senior setter for the team and I have always gone to all the home volleyball games. I do love my sporting events!
Becca is on the right, #7 on the court but #1 in my heart We have been close friends since freshman year and we have always had a strong bond. She is the type of friend who could totally rock out in the car with me without feeling embarrassed or even looking at each other. She is from Oklahoma and is a Biology major. ON the left is Stacy, she is a senior nursing major from Nebraska and is one of my suite mates! This is our second year living together and we usually always go on dinner dates together. It is friends like her that I am glad I chose MNU!
This past weekend was packed full as well too. I went to Central Methodist on Saturday to watch MNU Men’s soccer, MNU Women’s soccer and also football play. My RE Patti (shout out to the patster) for driving myself and one of my best friends Becca to the Central Methodist with her husband Lonnie. They are two of my favorite people here on campus and are always going to sporting events.
I LOVE going to sporting events at MNU, especially soccer. Four of my suitemates, one of them being my actual roommate, are soccer players and I have always loved going to watch them play since freshman year. Sometimes they call me the soccer groupie and even their coaches know me.. what can I say I just love being involved. Both the men’s team and the women’s team won on Saturday in their conference games. They were both tough games but they pulled through and came out on top. This is my roommate Ashlea who is a senior soccer player and also a nursing major! She is also engaged and we love to laugh at each other, with each other or with others!! We are always having fun together
This weekend I also found out that I got nominated for Homecoming Queen, how exciting!! I have been nominated every year and was really excited when I found out I was nominated for Homecoming Queen this year. One of my best friends who is on the men’s soccer team, Eddie Morales was nominated for Homecoming King and we actually get to walk together. Homecoming week is such an exciting and anticipated week for not only ASG and students but also for alumni of MNU. Since Homecoming is not for another two weeks I will be writing a blog on all the festivities that happen later on in the month.
That is Eddie! He is a great soccer player and has been leading his team in goals this year! He is a pretty cool guy and has been one of my closest friends since NSO freshman year (new student orientation)!
One of my highlights from the weekend:
Going to the NASCAR race with my dad and two of my suite mates! We had pitt passes so we got to go down and look in the garages, victory lane and at the cars before the race started!
