Finally Interning

For many programs in college there is a big final hurdle of sorts to get over before graduating. Sometimes it is a senior seminar paper and presentation. Other times it is an internship. Sometimes it might be both! My hurdle this year has been an internship at a local church. As a Lay Ministry student I have enjoyed the classes I have taken. Being able to put those classes into practice has been really enjoyable for me. It is nice knowing that my money has been spent wisely, preparing me for my future. more “Finally Interning”

Finally On Top

If you are an incoming freshman you need to know something: YOU WILL TAKE THEOLOGY/RELIGION CLASSES! Hopefully you did not read that and faint or cry or anything else outrageous. The reason why is because the entire Theology faculty is so groovy and helpful. They care so much about the students, and not just their grades either. Dr. Paavola, for instance, is one of these professors. When I was going through a tough time he asked how everything was and prayed for me in class. That might not sound like a lot of fun or help, but it was. more “Finally On Top”

Final Push

I have blogged a few times this year about my Graphic Design class. It is one of the coolest classes I’ve taken here that does not pertain to my major. We are in the final push into making our final project, a comic book, and it has been a challenge. I am, as of this writing, almost half way done, and our deadline for 25 pages is on December 6th. more “Final Push”

Final Product… Almost

The dream of college students is to have an easy last semester. Maybe they have a senior seminar to create. Perhaps there is an internship. They could just want to be able to relax and enjoy their last few months of college. I won’t lie, I really wanted that. I also really thought that I was going to get that. I only signed up for 16 credits including my internship. However, I was not counting on my art elective being so time consuming. And please, do NOT read this and think that it is bad or negative, it isn’t. It just takes more time than I thought it would. My graphic arts class’ main project is to make a 25 page comic book. That might not feel like much, but let me map out all I have done, and will do. more “Final Product… Almost”

Finally Teaching

One of the coolest parts of this semester is my internship. Being able to work alongside of the great people of St. Paul’s Grafton has been such a blessing. There have been times where I have been overwhelmed or needed a teaching moment, and they have given it to me. I honestly am so thankful to them for the opportunity. One of the coolest things I have been able to do is teach 8th grade confirmation. more “Finally Teaching”

The Final Art Class

I need to be honest here. One of my least favorite subjects growing up was art class. It’s not that I wasn’t good at art, but it just didn’t matter to me. I knew that my mom was either going to keep my art for a while then throw it out, or throw it out when I had forgotten about it. Here at school you have to have at least one art class, and I have put it off until my last semester. I also was not going to sign up for the basic art class. Nope. Not my style. Instead I signed up for Graphic Design 1. more “The Final Art Class”
