Let’s Be Freaks and Weirdos Again

A lot of things can happen during a show week. When you’re forced to spend almost thirty hours in one week with the same group of people, crazy things are bound to happen. Brigadoon was last week and, like most of the “fun” things I try to do on campus, God managed to wrangle his way into it. I’m not going to talk about the show its self–although it was totally awesome, everybody in the cast did a fantastic job, the crew rocked as did the pit, and the male lead was absolutely wonderful (I think he’s super cute too. For[…]

Stress Is Stressful

Hey friends!  So school is stressful…That is just a part of being a student!  Deadlines, group projects, sports, work, and trying to maintain a social life can be next to impossible to balance.  All of those things are very important in the life of a student and at times, one has the highest priority.  When they start to conflict, that is when life gets stressful.  Remember though!  Everything will be alright!  I have some tips to ease your stress when things get hectic. Go on a walk The weather is starting to get very beautiful.  It is not too hot[…]

Kansas City is the place to be.

In case you haven’t heard, the Royals won the World Series. One amazing thing about going to MNU is that it’s 20 minutes from Kansas City, which is extremely convenient when events such as this happen. I’m a huge Royals fan, but mainly I’m a huge Kansas City fan. I love the Royals, but I couldn’t name every player on the team and I don’t know everything there is to know about baseball. I’ll admit that I don’t watch every game, but I don’t think that makes me any less of a fan than the other 800,000 people at the parade[…]

What’s a day in college look like?

It’s November? It’s November! Time to schedule classes for next semester… already! Upon planning my new schedule, I realized a typical college daily routine will change semester to semester. So I wanted to illustrate to you all what your schedule MIGHT consist of going day to day. (Now let’s remember that I’m taking 16 credit hours and working full time. This might not be what YOU end up doing.) Morning Routine: I wake up around 7:30am, as a commuter I leave at 8:20am for my 9am class. Depending on the day, I might eat breakfast, spend a solid amount of[…]

The World Series for the Athletically Illiterate

So let’s get one thing straight. Nothing I say in this post is anything serious about the Royals winning the World Series (woop woop swag it up home skillets). I know nothing about sports. Nothing. It’s sad really. So I’m going to talk about how the World Series has managed to impact my poor defenseless little life. So first of all, refer to the cover photo to see how my College Small Group night was hijacked by the game. I was forced to sit on a couch with fellow Christians, spill Pepsi on myself like a slob, and yell non-opinion[…]

What Is The Point Of A Dry Campus?

Hey friends!  This weekend is Halloween for those of you who do not know.  I am not really sure how you possibly could not know that.  But as long as I can remember, Halloween has not been on a weekend for a long time.  So I am sure there are going to be some crazy college Halloween parties.  Parties full of people dressed up in insane costumes pretending to be someone or something else just for the night.   And you know what college parties means.  Alcohol. Now, MNU is a dry campus.  It is against the rules to have[…]

COLLEGE- A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF

Maybe it’s been the gloomy weather, or maybe it’s all those Coldplay songs I’ve been listening to. But I’ve been in a really poetic mood. So I wrote this poem portraying some of the things you may find yourself dealing with college. A YEAR TO FIND YOURSELF Every season brings in a tide of new faces and waves of new rages. Old prides will be torn down so humility may grow. You will reap what you sow Strangers will become lovers and crushes will forget. You’ll be a hopeless romantic because cupid’s arrows will miss. You’ll tell stories of who[…]

SO MUCH HAS CHANGED SINCE I’VE BEEN HOME.

I still remember the day I left for college. My mom kissed me and told me to not constantly call her (I think she was kidding.) My father who had already prayed for me at least six times in the past five minutes asked if we had prayed yet. I got in the car with my roommate and started our voyage to college. The further we drove the smaller everything got until it was all gone. But what my little enthusiastic freshman mind didn’t know yet was that things were never going to be the same.  Its mid-term now and[…]
