A window inside life at Augustana College

What I love about the final week of the school year

For the first time in my recent memory, it’s Thursday afternoon and quiet on the 5th floor of the library. As I’m sitting by myself with a super cookie and the remainder of what the Brew has to offer, I tell myself to forget about my current responsibilities for a moment.

Listen to the buzzing of fluorescent lighting and occasional coughing from someone on the 4th floor with the intermediate clacking of a keyboard.

Sip on the semi-sweet iced mocha you settled for and chase it with a bit of super cookie.

Pay no attention to the huge gash on your knee attained from rushing to turn in your portfolio at the literal last minute.

Watch the trees sway and their leaves dance.

After today, you will have no academic responsibilities.

I live for these moments.
