HEY GUYS! So, it’s official, my freshman year is almost over. There are only two weeks of school left! Two weeks?? Where did the time go? Where in the world have I been?? It feels like just yesterday I was going through NSO (New Student Orientation) Week. And now I’m coming up on my lest week of school. It’s crazy how fast time flies.
We were talking about this the other day in class (how time has gone by so quickly). There was a group discussion about our experiences in our past and it was almost completely focused on this school year and how fast it has gone. We talked about how each of us has learned a lot in these past few months, how we’ve grown a lot, how we have met a lot of new people, and so on and so forth. The most interesting stories to me were the ones that were about the ridiculous things that happened in Campus Center, or the one time during an intramural game when someone got hit in the face with a ball, or just times when we were just together and having fellowship. There were stories about character building, insane amounts of homework, or even times that were “alter” moments (which were very influential and I am very glad we had these too), but the stories I related to most were the relational ones. I feel like we all felt this way. We related easier to each other when we talked about relating (ironic huh?). It made me think “Man…I’m really gonna miss these people.” I’ve made so many new friends and had so many new encounters. Some times it was hard, but this year taught me a lot about how important it is for us to be together. I would not have been able to do it had I not connected withe people the way I have here at MNU.
A few weeks ago I blogged about MNU Secret Admirers. This is a perfect example of how we long to connect to other people, even if it is in secret :P. MNU has been awesome to me, and listening to these other people’s stories really helped me think back on everything I’ve experienced. This year has been really important to me, whether it’s what I learned in class, friendships I’ve gained, or just things I’ve done. Now that I look back, I can see how thankful I really am for coming to a Christian school like MNU, and if I had the chance to go somewhere else I would still pick MNU. This has become a second home to me, I will miss it terribly, and I know any of you incoming Freshman who will be here will feel the same way!
