A window inside life at Augustana College

My First Semester of College (in Memes)

So, it should go without saying that I am a freshman, but I said it anyway because, hey, why not? Anyway, this entire experience has been a really interesting time in my life so I’ve decided to put my insomnia to use and vaguely chronicle my first semester of college adventures with the use of […]

Fall’s Over, Christmas Is Around the Corner!

Welcome back Augie! How was Fall Break for everyone? Personally, mine was great! I got to go home to the good old Rocky Mountains in Colorado so that was fun. Getting out there was a trip to say the least! The flight was itself was great but the experience with the SOuthwest personnel at Midway […]

Fall break recap

Well, Fall Break is officially over. Somehow breaks always seems to go by super fast. Over break I visited a friend at ISU, filled out grad school applications (I finally figured out where I want to apply!), visited the dentist and doctor, and worked on my senior inquiry. Oh the joy of being a senior. […]

12….more….hours….

October 31. Halloween. That typically means candy and costumes. This year it means a political science textbook and a whole lot of notecards! But the food aspect is covered with bags of popcorn, dark chocolate, pound cake, and lots of orange juice. With my last final tomorrow, I spent my day studying for it and […]

1.5 Weeks to Go!

So, it’s week 9 and I haven’t been home since the start of term. I live three-and-a-half hours’ drive away in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, so going home just for a weekend isn’t really an option. I’d prefer not to have to spend eight hours in a bus and then another two in a […]

Oh the comfort…

You know that moment when you move into your dorm room or apartment and you see that light wood desk, that mattress sitting on a bed frame that has endless possibilities of heights, and that light wood dresser sitting lonely and completely naked? The thought that then passes through your mind is “how can I […]

Fall break & winter term

Every fall break I tell myself I’m going to be productive and get a lot accomplished. I’m always going to read at least 10 educational books, apply to a lot of internships, and hang out with my friends every day. While I can’t say I had the most productive fall break, I watched seasons 4-6 […]

Back on campus

So I know it’s been awhile since I had the chance to blog and I apologize for not keeping everyone updated. Finals week was….interesting. I practically lived in the library. The finals themselves were a tiny bit less terrifying than I thought they would be. All the studying paid off and I am happy with […]

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 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 […]
