Theatrical Escapades at MidAmerica

This has been kind of an insane week for me. This is mostly because I am now a part of four shows at MNU and all four were a part of my week this week. Mousetrap I am super excited for Mousetrap! It is a show written by one of my favorite authors, Agatha Christie. It’s a murder mystery set in post WWII era London. I play Mollie who owns a guest house with her husband, Giles. The play begins with the opening of their guest house and as the play continues the audience sees how the young couple’s big[…]

My Hymn For The Weekend

Hey friends! I don’t know if you know, but Coldplay released their music video for their awesome song Hymn For The Weekend feat. Beyonce and it is amazing.  I titled this blog after their song and also because I am going to tell you about a great weekend I had two weeks ago. Two weekends ago, I drove me and a van load of my friends to the River Market to do a little shopping.  For those of you who are new to the KC area or just do not know much about it ( I am one of those[…]

The Awkward Dinosaur Tries New Things

It’s a new semester, a new year, with new classes, a new job, and a time to try new things and start new habits. This week I have begun all sorts of new things. First of all I began my new job as Managing Editor and News Editor of the Trailblazer. I have a new office on campus and brand new coworkers. I got to decorate my office which was awesome and it’s really nice to have a place of my own to get some work done during the day. I’ve been loving my new classes but probably my favorite[…]

Welcome to the Suite Life

Living in Spindle 306 is so fun… and strange at times. Our living area is full of crazy and weird things. Here’s a virtual tour of our suite… and why you should come visit sometime. 🙂 Paper snowflakes on the ceiling. Christmas time in Spindle 306 is a blast, including these homemade snowflakes that stay up all winter. A scooter garage. Yes, we actually use them. Scooter rides in the parking lot happen often. Lamps with no bulbs in them. I honestly have no clue why we don’t have lightbulbs in some of our lamps. Decoration, I guess? A toilet[…]

Resolution vs. Solution

I have always had an issue with the concept of resolutions. Especially around New Years time because it all seems too overdone. No one is expected to really follow through on theirs and it seems to have become a cultural joke. When I used to make resolutions I always found myself becoming increasingly depressed as I failed at my resolutions and constantly had to start over and fail again. I’m not sure if this is a personal problem or something common but in either case it raises an issue. Are resolutions worth making if it’s just going to depress me[…]

My New Year Resolutions

Hey friends!  It is five days into the new year and I have been doing some thinking.  Looking back, last year was not necessarily the best year of my life.  It was actually pretty rough on me.  Through all that, I have grown to be the person I am now and I think I have handled this past year very well. I have grown a lot from all of the trials I faced.  I made amazing new friends and strengthened the relationships of friends I already had. I want to continue growing and becoming the person God wants to be[…]

Fo Shizzle Winter Break Update, Yo!

I kicked off winter break with STAR WARS!!!!! I was insanely excited. I went with Gabe, Josh, Quinn, and Kory to the B&B Theater in Overland Park (My current favorite movie theater) and we sat on the second row of their huge theater. Every few minutes before the movie started I would turn to one of them and excitedly whisper “STAR WARS!” probably driving them nuts, but they still talk to me so it’s cool.   I asked Josh to take a picture of Quinn and I in front of the Star Wars poster sign thing and ended up with[…]

My Favorite Memories From This Semester

As the semester comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite memories of sophomore year so far. The first thing that comes to mind is the trip I took to Colorado over fall break. I went with my friend Christen and we stayed with an amazing family while we were there. Christen and I explored Colorado Springs, hung out with horses, watched some Royals baseball, and went to New Life Church. Speaking of Royals baseball, another one of my favorite memories is when the Royal’s won the World Series… and every game leading up to that. My friends[…]

Is there life after finals?

Yes. Let’s just clear that up. Finals, for all the bad mojo we attribute them, do at least one really good thing. They help us to realize how much we have learned over the semester. I just want to do a quick review of what I’ve learned this semester. I had to shorten it by quite a bit because life happened this semester and life is hard to summarize. Don’t be afraid to be busy. I was incredibly busy this semester but looking back, I wouldn’t have changed any of it. I had incredible experiences in the Honors Program, on[…]

Slaying the Stress Monster

This week is insane. It just is. The week before finals everyone either seems to walk around like zombies who have given up on life or are running around like overly caffeinated squirrels trying to get everything done at the last minute. I have taken to switching between the two pretty much on the hour. I would prefer not to talk about the things that are causing me stress (as they are all my fault for putting them off). However, I would absolutely love to talk about the way God has blessed me with ways to keep me sane. For example,[…]
