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 […]

Just a small town girl…

I have never pictured myself as a “country girl” in any shape or form… until I came to Augie. Just about all of my friends and anyone else I meet here on campus are from Chicago suburbs; on occasion, I’ll find the few from other cities or big towns.  I, on the other hand, have […]

Summer 2010!

So it’s August already of my first summer of college!  I never thought I would hear myself say this but I am ready for school to begin.  It seemed like in high school I could not wait for summer.  I would have baseball and get to hang with my friends on a daily basis, but […]
