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[…]

– – – – – Traveling to New Places – – – – – ✗

The adventures have begun . . . . . . Two weeks ago, got a three day weekend! MNU calls it “fall break.” It is really just a Friday off from school, but I was not complaining! So, I made a spontaneous decision, to get away for the three day weekend. I needed to take a break from all the midterm exams and studies. When people ask, what city I am from in Northern California, I say, Sacramento. Why, because it is the closest city to me, for someone who, does not truly know California. I am actually not from[…]

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[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Fall Break Hiking Trip

Hey friends! You may have noticed that I did not post on my normal day. Over the fall break weekend I went on a hiking and backpacking trip in Arkansas with Kairos.  Kairos is the college age ministry group that meets at College Church of the Nazarene. They normally take a trip every school break.  They go backpacking during fall break, skiing over winter break, backpacking again over spring break, and white water rafting over summer vacation. Over fall break 22 MNU and JCCC students went to Arkansas and hiked the Ozark Highland Trails. We also peaked  Whiterock Mountain.  I[…]

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[…]

KT’S HOMECOMING WEEK RECAP

Hey! So, last week was Homecoming Week here at MNU… which means every night is filled with fun, friends, and free food. 🙂 Here’s a quick recap of the events that I attended. Thursday night: Hoedown The Hoedown is something I look forward to every year. It’s basically a bunch of fun dancing, donuts from the Louisburg Cider Mill, root beer, and the crowning of the class princes and princesses! Friday night: Bonfire/Buck Night This year, ASG decided to do a giant bonfire at one of the football practice fields and then gave every student free food at the Buck[…]

How to Make Friends with the Awkward Dinosaur

One question that I get asked all the time is, “Renee! My goodness, you are a college student now, what ever is your major?” I reply with “Good Sir or Madam, I am a double major in “Bible and Theology” and “Communications”. I love it very much.” To which they reply, “Good heavens! What an unusual combination! What ever do you plan to do with your life?” And they receive from me a blank look of alarm because despite my air of cool collectedness I am quite uncertain of my path in life. This fact never really bothers me unless[…]
