It’s OK To Feel Down Sometimes

Hey friends! So I wanted to talk about this during mental health awareness week but I obviously missed that chance, but I think that I can tie the subject in pretty well to this upcoming week. “But Isaac!  What are you even talking about?!” I’m glad you asked!  I am talking about depression. “But Isaac!  How does this subject tie into this upcoming week?!” Ok, calm down I’ll tell you. Finals week is stressful.  For some people, probably more than you think, it is a make it or break it time.  For some people, these tests are a matter of[…]

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,[…]

Fall Semester Is Almost Over 📚

There are only two weeks left of our fall semester. We call this period of the semester “crunch time.” This is where a lot of students are trying to do anything and everything to get their letter grade from a B to an A; or for those students struggling to pass that tough class, with a C or better. This is when, students start asking their professors for extra credit, or if there is anything else they can do to get their grade up. A biology professor of mine, ounce said . . . “Why would I trust and spend my hard earned[…]

The Space Between

Hey friends! We are in the home stretch. These next few weeks are going to be tough and stressful for a lot of us.  I know they definitely will be for me!  For me, it’s been a little rough getting back in the groove coming back from Thanksgiving break.  It was like a strange teaser for the moment we all are waiting for…Winter break!   The end of the semester! All the anticipation and excitement isn’t really helping with trying to study for finals and finish all those long term assignments that have been put off to the very last[…]

A LISTENING GOD

    The semester is winding down rather quickly. We made some new friendships, and ended some old ones. We surprised even ourselves with how well we did academically, or maybe we learned we should and will do a lot better than we did next semester. We ate a lot because college fifteen comes for the weak. We accepted eight hours of sleep five days a week is only a dream. We learned how to cope with how poor we felt every time we left the cashier’s office. A lot of things happened this semester. You learned a lot, well[…]

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[…]

Phonathon 2015 Recap

A few days ago, all the Phonathon team gathered in our call center for one last time to celebrate our successful year and say goodbye to the nights of calling alumni while playing hangman with each other and coloring with crayons. My second year of working at Phonathon was very different from my first year. This year, instead of calling for the whole campaign, I coached new callers for the first half. Coaching new callers put me in a kind of supervisory role that I’ve been in before in other situations, but never for Phonathon. It was a really great[…]

Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]

10 Times Liz Lemon Embodied The MNU College Experience

Liz Lemon is a pretty strange woman from the hit TV series 30 Rock.  I think that she perfectly and strangely captures the college experience here at MNU.  I am sure that everyone here has experienced at least one of these Liz Lemon moments. When you can’t figure out how to hook up the cable in your dorm room. 2. When you are looking forward to Glow With The Flow at the end of next semester because you know this year is going to wreck you.                            […]
