Keep Calm and Vote Neil

Over 10,000 doors, 1,000 yard signs, 14 weeks, one candidate. When I first interviewed for my internship on Neil Anderson’s Illinois Senate campaign back in July, our campaign manager, Jim, said to me, “The thing about campaigns is you either love it or you hate it, but once you get the bug, you never go […]

Hoggy Warty Hogwarts

Last week was my first homecoming at Augustana and it was pretty great! I enjoyed all of the events and everything was a new experience.

Like most people, I wish I had traveled somewhere where there isn’t snow and the […]

To the Person Leaving Letters All Over the Library

Hello! I just have a short post for today: To the person leaving letters all over the library, I just want to say Thank You.

Loves Me Not

Oh Valentines Day, the one day a year that makes couples “official” and single people ever more depressed. For those in a relationship, I would like to say “Congratulations.” I am truly happy that you found someone that takes away the loneliness, and I hope your love never burns out.
