International Student Dinner: Goodbye School

It has become a tradition for us, international students, to meet at the end of the school year and celebrate that we are one step closer to our bachelor’s degrees. This year, me and other students from thirteen different countries met thanks to our wonderful counselor for international students Melissa Miller and her amazing family. In the middle of school craziness, we rarely have time for any small talks. Luckily, events like this help to remind us where we come from, and how blessed we have been by the opportunity to become Pioneers. Wherever we get together, the place immediately[…]

Weird things about the UK

Now that I have been living in the United Kingdom for almost seven months now, there are a few different things that I have picked up that you can only recognize when you have lived somewhere for a while that are different from the way we do things in the United States. For the most part I have found that the UK culture is very similar to our own but there are a few minor differences that you can pick up on that just seem strange to an American. 1. Their lemonade is clear and bubbly. Instead of the lemonade[…]

A Journey to the European Capital

There are two kinds of places I enjoy visiting. The first one is any place with an interesting ancient history. The second kind is any place that has a significant role in our world nowadays, and Brussels surely is one of those places. It is a beautiful centre of the European Union. In the eyes of Europeans, Brussels is a symbol of wealth and prosperity, however, I realized very quickly that the city had two different faces. I chose Brussels as my destination, because I wanted to see where I am going to work one day. Yes, I want to[…]

My European Summer

Let me tell you about my summer in Europe that was definitely something else! After spending ten months in the United States, I had this strange feeling that I would be a tourist in my own country. I was looking forward to spending some time back home in the Czech Republic. I missed my family, my girlfriend and the “right” meal portions that don’t make you fat after one week. I also missed the simplicity of expressing my thoughts in my mother tongue. All of this was my source of thrill. However, after my plane landed in Prague and my[…]

Living ON Campus vs. Living OFF Campus

Living ON Campus: It has its perks, but it also, has its downsides. Being a freshman, it can be super exciting coming in, fresh out of high school, excited to be on your own and have a roommate. You get to meet new people and make new friendships. You get to experience, what it means, to be a true college kid. On this campus, for both, men and women, there are three styles of dorm living. The first style, is the freshman and sophomore dorms. In them, there are one to two roommates per room. They share a community shower with the rest of the hall. The[…]

– – – – – 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[…]

The one where I couldn’t think of a title.

Well hello there people. It’s been awhile…wow the last time I posted I was in Europe! It feels like I have been back in the states for forever but it has only been a month. The semester that I lived in Europe was truly a once in a lifetime experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I am definitely missing the European scene that I was apart of and I can’t wait until I get to go back! But since being back I have got to see so many of my friends that I missed like crazy while I[…]

The one where I explored the streets of Rome.

Well this past week I was in ROME! So here is a recap of all that I got to do. 🙂 Day ONE: We arrived. Got checked in to the cutest B&B I have ever seen. Then we went out and ran into Auralian’s wall and then ate at a pizzeria. Each of us got a massive full sized pizza for only 5 euros! Day TWO: We got up. Bought our Roma passes for transportation and discounts to all the places we wanted to go. Headed to the area of the Roman forums and passed Capitoline hill and Trajon’s column[…]

The one when God answers prayer…with ME!

Hello there reader. Did you know that God is so awesome. Well just listen to this story. I went to ICF this past Sunday with a girl that I became friends with here named Corinna. She picked me up and off we went to the celebration.- They call their services ‘celebrations’ because they want everyone to know that they celebrate the Lord. Upon arrival we are waved down by her friends in the front that had saved us spots. -CELEBRATION HAPPENS- After it gets over one of the  girls sitting by my friend starts talking to me. We talked about[…]
