Hello readers! (AKA hey Mom, Dad and that kid I paid $5 to read this and tell me how great it is)
Welcome to my very first Augie blog! I’m very excited to be giving you a look at Augustana life from my point of view. I remember reading through these blogs when I was just a naive youngin’ (okay…. like four months ago) , trying to figure out what being a freshman was really like. While I can’t promise that everything I write will be relevant, or logical for that matter, I’m going to try my hardest to show what life is like for a
slightly odd normal first year student.
Ok, so let me catch you guys up on where I’m at right now. I just finished my very first term, which is more than a little terrifying. I can’t believe a whole 1/12th of my college experience has flown by so quickly. Here is a pretty accurate visual representation of what those first ten weeks were like.
It was scary at first, and as an admitted hater of change, I had a tough time adjusting. Once I settled in however, college became incredible. I could stay up as late as I wanted watching Netflix and my mom couldn’t even yell at me. It was so liberating. I enjoyed all my classes, and had a lot of fun getting to meet new people and experiencing all the Augie scene has to offer.
So here I am today, well into the first week of term two. I am suddenly finding myself with a lot less free time than I had last term. Between having more classes, a new job, and more activities, my time for middle of the day naps has decreased significantly. So! That about brings you up to date. With that, I will say goodbye and leave you with a picture of my latest obsession: small animals wearing boots.
