War Dance

by Candance on April 24, 2017

in Extracurricular,Faith

Came to the campus this past Friday to have FBU Ugandan Bonding night and it was great! We ate McAlister’s deli (which I had never tasted), chit chatted for a bit and watched an inspirational movie called “War Dance.” This movie documented the lives of young Ugandan children who had been affected by the Rebels. Each youth had a different story about losing the life of a loved one(s) and how they currently reside on a military “safe zone” base. They all wished they could go back to their home land but because of the Rebels it was impossible for them to go back.

That movie was so motivating and well worth the 1 1/2 hour or so. It really gave a vast perception of life in the eyes of the Ugandan people and community, it gave hope to me and it made me feel excited that I would be experiencing learning the lifestyle and culture of these wonderful people within a few months (July 23rd). Such a humbling experience.

You MUST watch this movie!

OMG! Am I glad the end is oh, so near. This semester has been a whirlwind (in a good way). This semester has challenged me in many ways but it’s all worth it and I know it’s growing me in so many areas!

I have been procrastinating a bit with finishing up my paper and getting started on my final presentation but I’ll be back at it starting today with getting things done. I have a 10-page paper to complete, which is just about done, and a virtual conference presentation I have to start. I’m trying to figure out which presentation slide show tool I’d like to use, I thought I’d try PowToon but it doesn’t seem to want to work properly so I’m currently searching for something else. If all else fails, I’ll just use a tool called Articulate-Storyline 2.

Even though I’m taking 1 class this summer, getting a break for a few short weeks will be very comforting to my brain.

Spring Break

by Candance on April 4, 2017

in Extracurricular

My spring break was cool. Nothing fantabulous going on! I did take a short break from school work and I TRIED to relax but that didn’t go too well. Helping my parents move into a new home, I picked up more hours doing interpreting and worked on a new project at my internship.

 

LOL! Not really a spring “break” though! But I enjoyed helping those I came in contact with and starting a new project.
