Last week we totally forgot to introduce ourselves, so this week we talk more about ourselves and our journeys to MNU. Make sure you watch until the end… Landen is a jerk. Just kidding, he’s awesome!
Hey Everyone! Landen and I collaborated on our first vlog to talk about making friends! We hope you enjoy it.
My name is Logan and I’m about a month into my freshman year here at MNU. When we begin new journeys and start over in a new place, we encounter situations, people, and places that we’ve never experienced before. I’m going to talk about some of my experiences so far and what they’ve taught me. 1. Learn to manage your time wisely In High School my schedule was pretty much cut and dried. Go to school at 8 am, attend 7 classes, football practice after school, homework, free time, bed. There wasn’t much room to fit other stuff into[…]Read More
This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]Read More
This school year has been so much more than I ever could’ve imagined. I have had amazing opportunities I never thought would come. I’ve also had incredible people in my life that equip me to be successful and encourage me to be fully who I was made to be. This blog is dedicated to those people – the ones that I couldn’t live without. 1. My family The first people I couldn’t live without are my family. My mom and dad have always been so encouraging in whatever endeavor I’m pursuing. They have been so gracious to support me in[…]Read More
I asked different people on campus to finish the following sentences about summer: Summer means ___________ . One thing about MNU I will miss is ____________ . One thing about MNU I won’t miss is ______________ . The first thing I will do during break is ______________ . My plans for the summer are ____________ . Everyone has different plans and thinks differently about the summer time. Personally, I am not a big fan of summer. Mostly, because I work full time. As you can see, my summer is pretty boring, so let’s see what the rest of MNU does[…]Read More
I have been learning some valuable lessons about having fun this last week. It seems like it would be easy, like Oh, of course I know how to have fun, don’t you? But in reality, in the middle of the insanity that is April, I found myself focusing on the stress so much that I nearly forgot how to have fun. Tuesday the Sophomore class council threw a Napoleon Dynamite prom. It was hosted in the tipping point in the Land Gym building on campus. The movie was playing in the tipping point, there were tater tots in the cafe[…]Read More
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[…]Read More
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[…]Read More
This last week I performed in two of MNU’s student directed one acts. One of these one acts was a play called “All About Lewis” and stands to be one of the most interesting creative collaboration processes I have gone through to date. I first wrote this script, about an egotistical talk show host named Lewis Daily and the plots of his producer, Debora, to get him fired, my freshman year with three of my best friends. Since then I have adapted the script several times to make it more of my own but the original heart of the show and[…]Read More
