A window inside life at Augustana College

Goodbye week 9…Yikes! It’s week 10!?!

Oh geez….oh geez, oh geez, oh geez…… Yup it’s that time of the term…Week 10!! AHHHH!!!! Cue the creepy Halloween music. I have been pretty calm so far this trimester, but now I am feeling the pressure. Unfortunately though, it’s not just me. Pretty much everyone I know is at least a little bit freaked […]

Finally time to relax….AKA Week 8 Is FINALLY OVER!!!!

So week 8 left me extremely exhausted after a quiz, paper, exam, and essay. So come the weekend, decided to kick back, relax, and have some fun. Friday night, my friends and I went to intramural bowling. We are in no way, shape, or form professional bowlers. In fact, we looked down right hilarious! We […]

Week 7…..caffeine is my friend

Wow this last week and a half has been crazy! Tests and papers and concerts and meetings have been brutal! Thankfully, after tomorrow everything should settle down a lot! I got to do a lot of fun stuff over the last few days though. I volunteered at a soup kitchen on Saturday morning at Two […]

A Crazy end to Crazy week 6

This weekend was parents weekend and too be honest, was one of the best parts of my week! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Auggie. I love the new activities, classes, and people that I have become involved with, but it is not quite the same without my parents, sister, and puppy. I went […]

An Awfully Big Adventure

Of course, you will miss your parents and your pets and the use of a private bathroom, but college life will be so enchanting the first […]

It’s hard to admit it, but they were right!

Before starting college we were all bombarded with advice. Try new things, buy your books online, don’t party too much, etc… Let’s be honest, we didn’t pay much attention to some of the things we were told becuase we didn’t think they would be true, for example: Most of your assignments will  be reading…TRUE! Whenever […]

Ive Never Been Happier to Wake Up In My Own Bed

I opened my bleary eyes at around 11:00 this morning, to a cool, peaceful, dark room all to myself (my roommate slept elsewhere last night). I instantly sensed that it was cloudy and raining outside through the open windows, my favorite weather. I had slept wonderfully, after not having been able to sleep this late or […]

Finally getting adjusted to college….

Hey everyone, Were now halfway through the first trimester and I finally feel like I’m getting used to the college life.  At first it was weird trying to juggle the homework load and all the extra free time.  In high school, I hardly ever had any homework and if I did, I finished it all […]
