A window inside life at Augustana College

Hats! Hats for Sale!

Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? If you are in the Midwest, you know it is pretty cold. And when I say that, I mean it is absolutely freezing outside. Absolute zero would be warmer…maybe. If you live somewhere warm (AKA not the Midwest), here’s a picture: Now, I’ve noticed that Augustana students are […]

5 Best Bathrooms on Campus

Rush season will be wrapping up here in the next few days, and I have definitely made some fantastic memories. But there’s one thing I have to do before my rush experience comes to an end. So in honor of rush season and all the crazy questions I’ve been asked in the past week, here’s […]

Love Letter Lessons: Inspiration to Seize the Day

Let’s let me talk selfishly for a second, but about something most girls and maybe some boys can relate to. When I was younger I remember constantly chasing boys like dogs chasing cats. Never-ending. What was my goal? It was always to deliver a letter filled with my feelings. Yet, I never caught up to […]

Res Hall Etiquette

Tragedy struck on Monday: I ran out of clean yoga pants. This of course warranted a trip to the 2J laundry room. This is not a pleasant place, let me tell you. It’s like a jungle in there, full of crazy and scary creatures. When it comes to snagging a washer or dryer, us 2J […]

Third World Problems.

Hey everyone! In honor of Symposium Day, let’s talk a little bit about social justice! You’ve probably heard the phrase “first world problems”. Maybe you’ve even used it! If you don’t, here are some examples, courtesy of Google images! Anyway, my point is these are completely ridiculous! We take so much for granted these days, […]

Do you suffer from bargain-itis?

You know you’ve done it. You bought that thing that you REALLY didn’t really need and will probably never use…ever. Why? All because it was ON SALE NOW!! For a broke college kid, the side-effects of contracting bargain-itis can be crippling…and they need to be stopped. You do not have money to throw around and […]

Catching Fire

  First off, I really enjoyed the movie Catching Fire. I thought it followed the story line pretty well, and it was very attention grabbing. (Had to say it, I just saw it a few days ago:) )Anyway,  just like for Hunger Games, I do not believe this film glorifies violence in any way. Just as before, […]

Is London Calling?

You’ve all been getting those pesky emails about “STUDY ABROAD APPS DUE!” every other day or so over break, right? Well until about three days ago when my dear friend, Paige, visited me, I didn’t even think about these emails. Once she arrived, we began discussing our options for studyingabroad and wondered if we should […]

A Christmas Crush

Hello! First off, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!* I hope you got everything you wanted and spent some quality time with your family. So one of my favorite Christmas movies–right after Charlie Brown, the Grinch, and those Rankin/Bass specials (you know, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nose Reindeer?)–is The […]

Dating Ettiquette I Wish Were Still Cool

Hey everyone! This week 4 has bitten me right in the butt, seriously. It’s been so hectic trying to write my first draft on my SI intro! But I’m taking a break…so hooray!! Looks like you’re taking a break too! This week I’m blogging about more old-school dating etiquette that has fallen out of favor, […]
