30 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A PIONEER AND NOT A SETTLER!

[three_fifth_last][/three_fifth_last] Guys, it’s time! Time to separate the reals from the fake, the Queen B’s from the Kardashians, the Pioneers from the settlers. This is what makes you a pioneer! Hopefully you can Identify and enjoy! If you’ve never had a conversation with Pope St. John, and not laugh or smile then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never texted your home girl (or homie) to come open the door for you, because you stayed out past curfew then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never had to squeeze six people into an individual study room, because all the group[…]

Unbreakable

Hey friends! One of my favorite Netflix original series is back on!  Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 is back on Netflix and I could not be more excited!  I plan on watching it all this weekend.  After doing so I will give you a little review. Season 1 was pretty good.  The show is about a a woman who is a survivor of a cult.  Kimmy and a few other women were retrieved from a bunker where they lived for over ten years.  Kimmy is now out and living in New York City.  The show follows her and the friends[…]

THE CURE FOR MNU’S SINGLENESS IS HERE

Our university is under attack. Our greatest enemy is greater than running out of toilet paper, your  8am class, getting busted for staying later for open dorms, and even bigger than finals. What’s bigger than all of that? The large epidemic of singleness that has prolonged its visit upon our campus. We have been called to “be fruitful and increase in number; to multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” (Genesis 9:7) (After we ring by spring first, of course). But how can we ring by spring if there is such a big gap between the guys and girls[…]

King of All Fruits

Hey friends! So those of you who know me know that I like adventure.  I also really like Asian culture.  So if there is an Asian market, you best know I’ll be there buying all sorts of amazing foods.  A few nights ago, me and my roommate/best friend decided to try something new together.  We wanted to eat the King of All Fruits.  Also known as the Durian Fruit. Drove to an Asian super market that is about 15 minutes from campus to purchase the fruit.  They are rather large fruits.  About the size of a water melon and the[…]

The Joy of On Campus Jobs

One of my favorite things about MNU is the large variety of on campus job opportunities that are provided for students. When I came into college, I had no clue how I was going to handle school and work, or even if I wanted to have a job. When I found out about on campus job opportunities, I decided to apply for a few and see how it went. I ended up being hired as a student caller for Phonathon. I was also hired as a student blogger for the marketing department (which I’m obviously still doing now). I’ve loved[…]

Spring Break Adventures

Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break.  No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret.  Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days.  We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville.  We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville.  The next morning we[…]

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,[…]

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[…]
