May the Fourth Be With You

Today is May the 4th, but it is also the start of finals week. It’s a big day to say the least. May the Fourth-It’s a Star Wars day, and yes I understand the reference even though I’ve only watched all the movies completely through once. It’s a day of different kinds of celebrations on [...]

Okay…Let the Panicking Commence!

Last week I wasn’t panicking, and I decided to take time to do things for myself, which was great and very much needed! However, unfortunately that is not the case any longer. The carefree attitude from two weeks ago continued throughout this last week, and I probably spent too many nights not working on papers [...]

I’m Not Panicking…YET!

There’s only two weeks until finals, and then after finals, the semester will be done. I cannot believe how time has literally flown by. It seems like just yesterday I was packing my backpack for the first day of the semester, but it was 98 days ago. So, realistically I should be freaking out trying [...]

Did someone say ice cream?

Sometimes you show up to class, and it doesn’t go as planned. Either that’s by the teacher’s plan, or the student’s plan, or both. This last week, class did not at all go according to plan, and that was okay! On Wednesday, I walked into my Ministry Discernment class, which is only three students, to [...]

Things I Love-Part 7-The Computer Lab

If you are close to me, or have talked to me at all since mid-February you would know that for the past 52 days my computer has been having some serious issues. These issues have amounted in over 25 hours either at the Apple Store trying to get them fixed, or on the phone with [...]

Not My Spring Break

So this week is not Spring Break for FPU, and honestly it is kind of frustrating. Don’t get me wrong, when we had Spring Break two weeks ago, it was greatly needed and appreciated. However, something about this week being the time when it feels like literally every other school is on Spring Break (except [...]

A FULL Office

When I first started working in the University Communications and Marketing office at Fresno Pacific, three years and seven months ago (yes I count, it was my first job!) I was overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that I had to do, and the fact that there were so many people in [...]

It’s Over!

That glorious part of the semester where we, as students, but not as workers, have a week off of school is now officially over. It was nice to have the week off, but then again, I didn’t get as much done as I had planned. However, I think that’s how it goes every break. If [...]

Spring Break is Here!

Spring Break is finally here, and boy was I needing it. As the break got closer and closer, I kept thinking of all the time I would have to get ahead on homework and to be able to relax and sleep in, but boy have I been fooled. My break started off a little differently [...]

Things I Love-Part 6 Celebrations

Something I love about the Fresno Pacific campus is that it is small enough that you know people. This means that when someone gets engaged, gets a wonderful new job, or has a birthday (like me) it’s a community thing! One of the first things that surprised me this morning was Garrison singing “Happy Birthday” [...]
