Snowpocalypse

Okay… so it wasn’t really a “snowpocalypse,” but we were excited for the snow. Here’s a short little video showcasing how my friends celebrated. -KT

Balancing an Unbalanced Life

What does a balanced life look like? I honestly couldn’t tell you, because I don’t have one. I used to think that my life had to be balanced. That I had to have a set schedule. That I had to have everything together. Being in college has forced me to realize that I don’t have to have a balanced life, and certainly that it’s nearly impossible to have one. If I told you my priorities, showed you my calendar, and then you saw how my days actually played out, you would be very confused. But that’s okay, because it used[…]

A Job Opportunity

So just to let you guys know, I have been looking for a job for a while now and I finally go a got found a job that was interested in me enough to have me come in for an interview. The place I’m interviewing at is Heritage Christian Academy, it’s on 159th and Black Bob. I know this is going to sound kinda bad but it’s like MNU, if MNU was high school or middle school.   Heritage Christian was looking for an assistant track coach and I saw the job posting on the job board on the MNU[…]

Busy Busy Busy

And so begins the busiest month of the semester: In February, there’s a lot going on at MNU, so here’s what you can be excited for: The RA Selection Process Every spring, the interview process to select new RAs begins. Resident Assistants are the liaison between the Residential Life staff, and the residents of the on-campus dorms, so you can imagine a rigorous interview process. RAs are typically the go-to person for any issue with your room, any type of question, or, in some cases, for advice and guidance. These are the people you spend a lot of your time[…]

#StopAshton2k15

The past few days, my friend Ashton has had bronchitis, so she’s been taking lots of Nyquil. In case you were wondering, Nyquil doesn’t set well with Ashton. Although it makes her feel better, she often says strange things and doesn’t remember what happened the next morning. Here’s a few tweets and text messages to illustrate the craziness that has been happening on the first floor of Stockton Courtside since this sickness invaded. So, as you can see, it’s been a fun and interesting few days with Ashton in a permanent Nyquil-induced mood. But, in all seriousness, Ashton is an[…]

Community

Last summer, I was on summer staff at Youthfront Camp West, which is a camp in Edgerton for elementary and middle school aged students. Being on summer staff means being part of a community made up of the other summer staffers, but also the full time staff and weekly volunteers. Being a part of that community and also the community at MNU has taught me a lot. Specifically, it’s taught me the value of community and how to live life more intentionally and fully. There are many important things that I learned about community last semester that has helped me[…]

Recess Semester

Well, here we go. Just one week into the semester, I’m already getting extremely busy between jobs, blogging, homework, being with friends, and once some choice TV shows come back in a couple of weeks, there’s just no chance. *cough Scandal cough* With all the stress piling on so quickly, I think it’s time to think about the semester from a more relaxed setting.  Recess Semester. Say bye to the real world as another semester begins. At the start of the semester, things seem great, you’re hanging out, don’t have a lot of work due, staying up late, thinking this[…]

Blessed Semester Ever

My church has been doing a series called “Blessed Year Ever” to kick off the New Year. During this series, my pastor has talked about how, as Christ followers, we can ensure that 2015 will be a year of blessing, and possibly the blessed year ever. This series, along with the mindset of “starting over” that the New Year always brings, has gotten me thinking a lot about how I want 2015 to look for me personally. I learned a lot my first semester of college and went through lots of new experiences, both good and not so good, that[…]

A Bright Yellow House

Hello friends Well if you are involved or know anyone in the MNU community, you possibly will know of the recent tragedy that has left many people with heavy and burdened hearts.  One of MNU’s dearest went to be with Jesus a couple days ago.  When heartbreak, tragedy, and trials come our way a mix of emotions rise.  There is confusion.  There is hurt.  There is anger.  There is shock.  All of which are logical and acceptable emotions.  In the past I haven’t always thought that my grieving mix of emotions were acceptable to God.  But that is simply not the[…]
