30 THINGS THAT WILL MAKE YOU A PIONEER AND NOT A SETTLER!

[three_fifth_last][/three_fifth_last] Guys, it’s time! Time to separate the reals from the fake, the Queen B’s from the Kardashians, the Pioneers from the settlers. This is what makes you a pioneer! Hopefully you can Identify and enjoy! If you’ve never had a conversation with Pope St. John, and not laugh or smile then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never texted your home girl (or homie) to come open the door for you, because you stayed out past curfew then you’re not a pioneer. If you’ve never had to squeeze six people into an individual study room, because all the group[…]

Have a little Fun, will ya?

I have been learning some valuable lessons about having fun this last week. It seems like it would be easy, like Oh, of course I know how to have fun, don’t you? But in reality, in the middle of the insanity that is April, I found myself focusing on the stress so much that I nearly forgot how to have fun. Tuesday the Sophomore class council threw a Napoleon Dynamite prom.  It was hosted in the tipping point in the Land Gym building on campus. The movie was playing in the tipping point, there were tater tots in the cafe[…]

THE CURE FOR MNU’S SINGLENESS IS HERE

Our university is under attack. Our greatest enemy is greater than running out of toilet paper, your  8am class, getting busted for staying later for open dorms, and even bigger than finals. What’s bigger than all of that? The large epidemic of singleness that has prolonged its visit upon our campus. We have been called to “be fruitful and increase in number; to multiply on the earth and increase upon it.” (Genesis 9:7) (After we ring by spring first, of course). But how can we ring by spring if there is such a big gap between the guys and girls[…]

The Story Behind “All About Lewis”

This last week I performed in two of MNU’s student directed one acts. One of these one acts was a play called “All About Lewis” and stands to be one of the most interesting creative collaboration processes I have gone through to date. I first wrote this script, about an egotistical talk show host named Lewis Daily and the plots of his producer, Debora, to get him fired, my freshman year with three of my best friends. Since then I have adapted the script several times to make it more of my own but the original heart of the show and[…]

A LETTER TO MY GUY FRIEND STRUGGLING TO GET MNU GIRLS TO NOTICE HIM.

Dear, Bud How are you doing? Good? Me too. Classes going well? You struggling a little? The taste of spring break got you all ready for summer? SAME, BROTHA, SAME! Well finish strong my man, we all want to see get that degree. Yeah no problem. Okay, here’s a little question between you and I, you know man to man? How are things with the ladies going? No, you can tell me I won’t tell a soul!  You’re struggling? These MNU girls can’t seem to give you a break? You even raise your hands up during worship at chapel? You[…]

Chicago and Championships

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[…]

Action Pact and Religions of the World

I have been loving this semester of classes that I’m in as well as the events that I’ve gotten to do through Action Pact, the improv SERVE team that I’m a part of. Friday Action Pact and VOP (Voices of Praise, the singing group that Quinn is a part of) got to work together to put on an awesome show for Heritage Christian Academy’s Father Daughter Banquet. It was a great tag-team event with VOP singing and Action Pact playing some games culminating in a SERVE team showdown lip sinc battle before VOP performed their final set. I love getting[…]

SEMESTER OR QUARTERS📚🗓

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,[…]

Taking a break from community, but not breaking away from it.

I love being around people. I love all the sharing that goes on. From sharing stories, frustrations, weird dreams, class discussions, passions, desires, who’s cute, who’s not, the list goes on and on. I believe community makes us better for each other. But could there also be a season of cutting back on people time, and increasing solitude time. In the book of Ecclesiastes King Solomon has reached old age, and writes what I would call a  “this is what I’ve learned” book. His guidance sound much like one a grandfather would give his grandchildren. My favorite chapter in the book,[…]
