As mentioned several times in my antecedent blogs, I am majoring in Communications. To be honest, I really just picked a random major that didn’t sound too hard or to specific. I just wanted to come to the United States and play soccer (don’t tell my Mom!). With Dr. Hamilton as my advisor, I figured out that life isn’t a wish concert (as a German would say for life is not a bowl of cherries). It is more like a puzzle. The good thing is that Dr. Hamilton pushed me to take classes that I thought I would never be[…]Read More
As you all know by now midterm grades are upon us. What does this mean you may ask? Chaos. Mass chaos. Here’s 7 phases of this week that every college student feels on a spiritual level: 1.When you realize that its midterms and you have 2 projects, 5 tests, and and 3 papers due and you haven’t started working on anything: 2. When stress eating is becoming a real problem. 3. When you are in self denial and you think everything is going to be okay. 4. And then when reality sets back in and you realize there are not enough hours[…]Read More
It’s officially April… which means we only have a month of school left… which also means that I’m counting down the days until summer. Ever since coming to college, I’ve spent every summer living and working at Youthfront Camp West. That’s all I’ve really known when it comes to summer. However, this summer I’ll be doing something a little bit different. I’ll be working for Youthfront again, but this time I’ll be doing a marketing internship with them! I’m super pumped about this opportunity to work for Youthfront in a different capacity. It’s going to be great experience for me,[…]Read More
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[…]Read More
Hey friends! Friday night, I got back from a crazy spring break. No I was not partying, drinking, or waking up with my friends then discovering a dead body that forces us to make a blood oath so no one ever reveals our secret. Instead, I was hiking through the Smokey Mountains with Kairos. 19 of us went to rough it up in the wilderness for three days. We left last Tuesday and drove to Nashville. We explored a little of downtown Nashville for a few hours then stayed the night at a church in Nashville. The next morning we[…]Read More
Hey everyone! This week is spring break, which means that I’ve consumed more junk food than usual and I haven’t worn jeans at all (except to church). On Saturday, I road tripped to Colorado Springs with my friend Morgan. We were on the same hall freshman year and this year we are on newspaper staff together. It was fun to spend time with her and relax! Like I said, we began our adventure in Colorado Springs. We explored Garden of the Gods, went shopping in Manitou Springs, and hung out with some friends that live in Colorado. We stayed in Colorado Springs[…]Read More
Hey friends! As you all know, this is the last day of classes before our Spring break starts. Most of us are leaving campus. Tuesday, I am leaving at 7 in the morning to drive to Tennessee with Kairos. We are going to be backpacking through the Smokey Mountains. I have gone on several trips with Kairos and this will be the second time for me in the Smoky Mountains. Last time I went backpacking through them was two years ago. We will be back late Friday night. I am going to do my best in taking pictures to have[…]Read More
Hey friends! Let me just tell you a little bit of the awful time I had Thursday. I have the worst time with cars and have car troubles regularly. In October I wrecked my car and totaled it. I have had multiple flat tires, ruined many break pads, and hit many, many mailboxes. So my most recent fiasco all started last Wednesday night. At dinner Amanda asked if she could see my phone. She does this thing where she will ask to see something, and once the person hands it to her she immediately throws it over her shoulder. I[…]Read More
