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[…]

The one where an Asian lady gets attacked by a swan.

HEY!  I’m so sorry that this is late- for some reason I couldn’t log in earlier this week. 🙁 But I can now so here we go! This past week I went to Lucerne and St. Gallen in Switzerland! We also had a fall banquet which was so amazing! Our fall banquet was a super nice night for all of us to get together with the staff and neighbors that live in Busingen. We all got dressed up, as much as we could with what we had, and had a great time. The dinner that we had was Raclette style[…]

The one with the epiphany.

For the past week I have livin it up in Frankfurt. As soon as I got off the train I knew I was going to like it there. And I was right. I absolutely loved this week! I learned many things about myself and God revealed so much to me about personal areas of my life as well as my future plans-His plans. We worked with Chris Zimmerman. Some of you might/should remember him speaking there at MNU earlier this semester. Well I am just gonna let my little notes about this whole experience speak for themselves. Ready. Set. Go. *Our vision is Heaven on[…]

The one where we worshipped in three languages, got ‘adopted,’ and walked like an Egyptian!

A lot has happened in Switzerland this week. So here’s a recap! ICF: A group of us went to Neuhausen to a youth/adult worship event and it was amazing. There were people from around ages 15 to about 30. Everyone got there and socialized while others bought coffee and snacks. Then at eight the craziness began. We filed into a big room with a stage. A video introducing all of the worship team played and then they all appeared. The whole night was multilingual and that was definitely my favorite aspect of the entire evening. We rocked out to songs in English then[…]

The one where we live with ‘brothers.’ (monks)

We just got back from Taize, France on Monday and it was quite an experience. We stayed in a monastic community where we lived in a community of brothers. A brother resembles a monk but just isn’t catholic. They have dedicated their lives to celibacy and to God. Taize is a community that is geared toward youth and they have hundreds and even thousands come to live in the community for a period of time. We had prayer services three times a day. Before breakfast, before lunch, and then after dinner. The prayer services are very unique. Everyone sits on[…]

The one where the hills come alive with the sound of music!

This past weekend was my first personal trip of the semester. And I loved it. Hannah Swearengin, Hayley Pankratz, Erin Knocke, and I got up super early to catch a bus, then a train, then another train, and then finally hours later arrived in Salzburg, Austria. The train ride there was beautiful. The scenery that we traveled through was incredible. After we arrived we wandered around for awhile until eventually finding our hostel. Yes we stayed in a youth hostel. And yes it was awesome. The next day we went to multiple museums such as Mozart’s birthplace and his residence. We also did some shopping through Old[…]
