10 Questions College Students Are Tired Of Hearing

Hey friends! So I have been thinking lately and I have no idea what I want to do with my life.  I am majoring in sociology and I have some ideas about what I want to do, but I have not fully committed to anything.  I am only 21!  Sometimes I tell myself that I am young and I have plenty of time.  But other times I feel so old and that if I do not figure this out soon, I am going to die sad and miserable!  I was asked a few days ago what I am majoring in[…]

The Road to Recovery

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[…]

VALENTINE’S DAY MEANS….

When we were younger Valentine’s Day meant getting lots of candy, Hannah Montana stickers (pre -wrecking ball Miley was DABOMB.COM) Valentine’s Day meant buying candy the night before, then praying that your classmates didn’t buy the same kind, but most importantly Valentine’s Day was the victorious feeling you felt at the end of the day. You know that feeling you felt when you came home with a backpack full of cavities, I mean candy. By the time we reached high school it was less about how much candy you could get, but more about if you’d be watching “The Notebook”[…]

Being Sick in College

This past week, I’ve been sick. The worst kind of sick I’ve been since being in college. It’s lasted for 7 days and counting. It started out being a stomach bug and then turned into a terrible cough/cold. I have no clue what’s going on, but lemme tell ya, being sick away from home is not fun. BUT, people at MNU are awesome and have helped in making it not as bad as it could be. I had to miss class for a day, so when I e-mailed all my professors, they told me to rest up and get better.[…]

Surgery is Near

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[…]

Ask The Trailblazer

Hey everyone! So, if you didn’t know, I’m video editor for The Trailblazer at MNU. This semester, we’re trying something we’ve never done before. We’re launching a video series called “Ask The Trailblazer,” where students can submit anonymous questions regarding anything (yes, anything) about MNU. Then, The Trailblazer chooses questions to find the answers to. The videographers find the right people to interview, and get the answers to the questions you’ve always wondered, or the questions you’re too worried about asking in public. We’re hoping to launch our first video in the next week or so. I’m really excited about[…]

The Truth About Community

Going to MNU has definitely taught me a lot about what it means to live in community. Coming into my freshman year, I had a lot of unrealistic expectations about the community at MNU. For example, I expected to be best friends with everyone. I didn’t expect cliques, drama, or really any hardships at all. I’ve now been going to MNU for 3 full semesters, and in that time I’ve learned some simple truths about community. Truth #1: You won’t be best friends with everyone The community at MNU is unique because it’s giant. When I hear the word “community,” I[…]

It’s Never Too Late For A Peace Treaty

I hate watching the news. It’s full of hatred and anger. I can’t tell you the last time I turned on Fox News and heard a story of peace and love. Why is it that we live in a day and age where my Bluetooth speaker can tell me the weather report and my daily schedule, but I can’t feel safe walking out to my car after dark? This week we celebrated Martin Luther King Jr Day and I sat through a passion filled chapel, but the whole time I was struggling with the concept of “peace”. Dr. King called[…]
