A window inside life at Augustana College

It’s been a while..

I’ve completely neglected this blog lately and I’m sorry for that I hope you all had an outstanding break! I’d like to discuss the pros and cons of the lovely Fall Break Augie bestows upon us for a second… Pro’s A full week of being able to do whatever you want. Of course, some people […]

Is It Fall Or Winter?

Fall Break is over. Most of campus is either in the process or is already settled in. Winter Term officially starts tomorrow. (The official last day of fall/first day of winter is December 22nd if you were wondering.) I’m excited for Winter Term: I loved my first term of college and am excited to continue […]

Is it possible to grow tired of sleeping?

Um, perhaps? Since starting my fall break Monday of finals week (because I’m the bomb dig and got done early) I’ve been sleeping in. At first, it was strictly involuntarily and my mom was rather peeved. As a result, I helped her out around the house in the morning, taking short naps when she wasn’t […]

DIY: Braided Headband

I use to work at this accessory store in the mall and a new trend are these really cute braided headbands. I thought they were adorablebut not for $5.75-up…just not reasonable especially for a little strand of cloth that goes around your head. After close inspection of the headbands while I was “working” I decided that […]

Life is Beautiful

What’s playing in my ears: Dirty Projectors: \”Cannibal Resource\” Dirty Projectors: \”Cannibal Resource\” Live A couple of days ago, I was chatting with a friend of mine who’s a freshman this year at Augie. He was telling me about how the Quad Cities Creation Science Association gave a lecture on the falsehoods of Darwinism. Being […]

Hydroecology Immersion Term

I just got done with my very first immersion term and it was freaking awesome. During my class experience, we went to the river many times and did other amazing things. I did my very first research project with my class. Our research project was proposed by the Fish and Wildlife Services. The research project […]

….I am a survivor!

I am proud to say that I survived my first college term! The past few weeks have been bitter sweet and full of new experiences. I expected leaving home to be hard, but surprising adjusted fairly easily. Changing my high school study habits was the next step. It just took a couple of days and […]

How I have progressed… or not

As a part of my LSFY portfolio, I had to write about how I believed to have done in the class; sadly, I don’t think I did as well as I was capable. As a result, my self assessment wasn’t too kind. Since we were allowed to write in the form of poetry, I did […]

Campus in the Fall.

 I just finished my final paper before starting my fall break. One thing that helped me relax while trying to study for finals, was pulling out my camera on campus for the first time. I am really going to miss the beauty of campus in the fall. The leaves look perfect. By the time the […]

Random Observations on Finals Week

So there are probably a lot of people stressing about finals week right now. I’m not one of them. For me, my first week of finals in college has probably been my most relaxing and boring. I’m not the kind of person who has to study for hours and hours. So honestly, I just don’t have […]
