Here’s is the 100% true story of how I came about attending MidAmerica Nazarene University: (This story was meant to be read with a generic almost British accent similar to how they speak when performing Shakespeare… keep this in mind) My story begins in the magic area of Kansas City, Missouri. I was spending my days living in a beautiful castle (apartment building) right smack dab in the best (worst) party of KCMO. Guys, I Want A Castle. – Tangled GIF from Tangled GIFs It was my senior year of High School and the question had[…]Read More

Over the break a few friends and I stayed at Jordan’s house in Champaign, IL which we used as a home base for getting to Chicago and exploring the city. We had some mishaps along the way such as losing Levi’s bag on the side of the highway when, wrapped in a trash bag to protect it from rain, it escaped the ties binding it to the roof of our car and didn’t even make it into Missouri. Unfortunately we didn’t realize this had happened until we were a few hours into the trip. Levi handled things really well though[…]Read More
Why are colleges set up differently then others? As in, why are some colleges set up as a quarter system, verse’s some are set up as a semester system? What makes them, so, different from one another? Well, the difference, for those that do not know, a semester is 14 to 16 weeks and a quarter is 6 to 8 weeks. There would be 2 quarters for 1 semester. I go back and forth if, I like semesters or quarter systems better. I like that there is only 8 weeks, which makes it crunch time all the time. I also, like,[…]Read More
The first few days after surgery, all I wanted to do was sleep, sleep, and more sleep. The pain medication, the doctor provided me, made me sleepy within, 30 minutes. I would say by day three or four, the pain was excruciating. So, I made sure to just stay in bed and keep it elevated. Crutches, are for sure, my new cardio. Within the first couple of days, I knew, I had to get my tolerance built up. I did not start actually crutching a lot, until, day five or six; but my arms sore the first few days. The[…]Read More
The start of my MNU Track and Field career, has taken a turn. What may, some days, feel like a set back, is actually a step forward in the right direction. It has been a while since, I have talked about track and the new team on campus. This last fall, I was hit with some, saddening news. The news was, that, I was going to need surgery on both my ankles; if I wanted to continue running, and be able to walk in the future. Towards the end of last semester, I found out that my season had come to an[…]Read More
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[…]Read More
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[…]Read More
