Life story will add a chapter this summer

As I approached the brightly lit marquee of the Franklin Theatre, my whole body shook with a mixture of nerves and excitement. “World Premiere: Karen Kingsbury’s ‘The Bridge Part 2’” flashed before my eyes and I almost had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.

Europe trip rekindled thrill of adventure

Huge snowflakes fell gently from the sky as we walked the narrow, cobblestone streets of Zurich?s old town. The majestic spires of the city?s historic churches jutted above the snow-covered rooftops, and the slopes of the Swiss Alps peaked through the fog in the distance.

New ?Star Wars,? new fanatic

Summer close to home was well spent

As summer quickly approached at the end of last semester, I heard the following phrases countless times: ?Don?t waste your summer.? ?You won?t have summers off in a few years (cue smug smiles from all future teachers in the room).? ?Be intentional this summer.? And so on. Had I not made the decision to transfer to Tabor in the upcoming […]

A national debut: Q&A video in print?

When You?Tubers become famous, they usually end up making a Q&A video in which they answer a serious of random questions about themselves. I love these types of videos. I love asking or answering random questions to see what unique (or similar) answers people come up with. I?ve always wanted to make a Q&A video, but the problem is I?m […]
