I noticed that a great Spring Break comes with a lot of consequences. Struggling with no motivation and an increased need for sleep, the biggest consequence for me is wanderlust. It is the opposite of homesickness meaning I want to go see places. Now, I am stuck here for another month before I can go travel again. The other day, I already looked up hotels for next spring break. The reason why I feel like I am trapped in Kansas is because my spring break was out of the book. I had such a great time and really made the[…]Read More
Canceling my travel plans, I thought my Spring break would be a boring bummer. However, this past week turned out to be an amazing time, enabling me to charge up my batteries, explore Olathe’s amusement options, catch up on sleep, and be focused only on Track&Field. Instead of wondering around in New York City, I had decided to stay faithful to Olathe and use spring break as a lazy time, tottering among our track stadium, Olathe wellness center, and my bed. It may sound boring; however, believe me or not, sometimes I prefer boring before exciting because prior to[…]Read More
What a lovely spring break! This year I went to Omaha, NE with my friend Renee just for fun. We visited the Omaha Zoo and Aquarium, went to an improv show, and visited The Old Market.
On Saturday morning we did yoga in the aquarium!
More of the aquarium…
Penguins! Named this one Reginald!
We also visited Bob the Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge is cool because you can stand it both Nebraska and Iowa at the same time!
In all it was a fabulous weekend. For only a three hour drive it was well worth the trip!
As an exchange students, breaks mean that you finally get to go and explore on your own. Although Kansas and MNU is an adventure itself, the real fun begins when I have to book flights and plan trips by myself. It is about the balance of planning in advance and being spontaneous in exploring places I have never seen before. It is also about looking at school from a different perspective. Spring Break 2017 This year, I booked a flight to California -where my boyfriend’s family lives – to visit them. Although I have been there before, there are still[…]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
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,[…]Read More
