Second Semester… WUT?!

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[…]

Success Mushroom

I can’t sing. I am not a musical person. My friends are musical people but I was not given that gift. I can art…sometimes. People tell me I can art but I won’t attempt to draw something that I’ve never drawn before because people might look at it and realize I’m not very good at arting after all. I am as good of a Christian as I am ever going to be. I have a certain ability to understand and experience God and I should be content with where I am. These were statements that I believed about myself about[…]

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.                            […]

10 Things That Change After Freshman Year

This is my second year at MNU, and although I’m going to the same school and studying the same thing, it seems vastly different from my freshman year. There are quite a few things that have changed, small and big. Here’s my personal list of things that have changed since freshman year. I hope this can apply to other students besides myself. 🙂 1. The amount of times you eat at Campus Center It’s not necessarily that I eat out more, but I get real tired of the having the same thing for dinner every day. Maybe that’s my fault for[…]

Stress Is Stressful

Hey friends!  So school is stressful…That is just a part of being a student!  Deadlines, group projects, sports, work, and trying to maintain a social life can be next to impossible to balance.  All of those things are very important in the life of a student and at times, one has the highest priority.  When they start to conflict, that is when life gets stressful.  Remember though!  Everything will be alright!  I have some tips to ease your stress when things get hectic. Go on a walk The weather is starting to get very beautiful.  It is not too hot[…]

What’s a day in college look like?

It’s November? It’s November! Time to schedule classes for next semester… already! Upon planning my new schedule, I realized a typical college daily routine will change semester to semester. So I wanted to illustrate to you all what your schedule MIGHT consist of going day to day. (Now let’s remember that I’m taking 16 credit hours and working full time. This might not be what YOU end up doing.) Morning Routine: I wake up around 7:30am, as a commuter I leave at 8:20am for my 9am class. Depending on the day, I might eat breakfast, spend a solid amount of[…]

Wonderin’ If it’s even worth the chase

Well I’m wonderin’ bout the road ahead of me, Wonderin’ bout the things you said to me, Wonderin’ if these dreams will ever do. And I’m wonderin’ bout the way I spend my days, Wonderin’ if it’s even worth the chase, Wonderin’ if there’s still a need from you.” These lyrics are from a old song by TobyMac called Wonderin’. Lately, I’ve not only found myself listening to it constantly, but relating to the idea of wonderin. A point most of us find themselves in more often than we would like to admit. As college students we come in knowing[…]

9 Apps Every College Student Should Have

Hey friends! I’ve discovered that these apps have been really helpful in my college career. I hope that these will help you as well. 1. Quizlet This is number one because I believe that this app is partially responsible for the times that I get good grades on tests. Basically, Quizlet is a place where you can make notecards online and turn them into many different studying tools. For example, once you make a set of notecards on the website, you can change it to a study guide, printable notecards, and even play games with the terms. Once you create[…]

SIX SIGNS THAT YOU’RE NOW IN COLLEGE

[social icon=”twitter” url=”http://twitter.com” title=”Follow Us”][/social] 1. When there’s not enough hours in one day. If you don’t feel like you have time for yourself, others, or even everyone’s favorite friend Netflix; relax friend, you are not alone. There is a gravitational pull drawing us in all sorts of directions. From waking up for classes to then trying to squeeze lunch in between back to back classes. I know you’re probably wondering if it gets better. I think the busyness teaches us that we must either manage our time or our time will manage us. My advice would be to understand[…]

Second Semester… WUT?!

Hi guys! The semester started for us this past Monday. The first day of classes is always kind of exciting because it’s like another beginning to something great. I jumped into seventeen credit hours with 3 jobs on top of that. Don’t worry, I ended up dropping a class. I was so sure I could handle all of it, but to be honest, I just couldn’t. Thankfully I am a semester ahead so there’s no worries! It’s incredibly hard to believe the second semester is already here. If last semester went by so fast, I can’t even imagine how fast this next one[…]
