A window inside life at Augustana College

To the Person Leaving Letters All Over the Library

Hello! I just have a short post for today: To the person leaving letters all over the library, I just want to say Thank You. Thank you for making other people’s days a little bit brighter, especially since it’s finals week. Thank you for proving that people still write in cursive (remember when we were […]

Finals Week – Round 8

I’m just now realizing that I am closer to graduating from college than I am from having started college, as in I’ve completed 2.66 years here and I only have 1.3 years left. It’s amazing how time flies and I can’t believe that this is my eighth finals week at Augustana. This means I only have […]

Sometimes You Just Need A Nap

Between classes, managing a tutoring organization, work, and getting ready to go to Japan (T-minus 16 days!!), I often find myself in desperate need of some sleep. I live in Erickson, so trekking back to upper campus just for a nap isn’t always feasible. As a result, I’ve made myself familiar with the coziest spots […]

Finals

When I first started at Augie, I really wasn’t sure how I would feel about having to take finals three times per year, but now that I have gone through my first round of them, I am confident in my assumption that it will be easy! In high school, you only have to take finals […]

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 […]

“So much of me is made from what I learned from you”

“I’ve heard it said that people come into our lives for a reason/Bringing something we must learn/And we are led to those who help us most to grow if we let them/And we help them in return/Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true/But I know I’m who I am today/Because I knew you…” […]

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 […]

List of things to do over finals week

Considering I only have one final now, which is on Thursday, I have three days to do basically nothing. So I decided to make up a list of things I will do, so I can feel like I was productive. 1) Learn how to play N64 2) Finish season 3 of Greek 3) Figure out […]

This week’s obsession

Not sleep! Whoa. Though it probably should be on account of finals… NAH (I may regret this come monday ._.) I recently stumbled upon rainymood.com (not through stumbleupon, but brotips :]), which is basically just continuous rain. It’s rather lovely. While on the site, it recommends a song to play while listening to the rain. […]

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 […]
