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 […]

Who Needs Sleep Anyway?

   Last year, a friend told me, “You know, I heard that you can only have two of the three at college: good grades, a social life or sleep.” The further you get in your college career, the more you’ll realize how true this is. For the last couple of years, I mostly chose good […]

Good Grades, Social Life, Enough Sleep…

Hey friends! I learned a very valuable lesson this afternoon as I received the results of my last Psychology test: it’s impossible to be amazing at everything. I heard somewhere that college life basically gives you the choice of two of the following three areas; good grades, social life, enough sleep. I don’t know if […]

De-stress Week 5

It has come to that dreadful time again, mid-term week. The one week that may come close to finals week. While all your friends are arriving home from their finals week, you get to stay in class until 3:45on Friday (At least in my case). Some ways to get rid of the pre-break jitters: Watch […]

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 […]

Empathy for lefties in a righty-dominated world

With the remodeling of the library going on, there’s only one thing I don’t have to complain about: the arm chairs with swiveling tablets and cup holders. They’re similar to this one, but not exactly (picture soon to be posted). It wasn’t until earlier today, as I settled down with my history text book and steaming […]

Why complaining is pointless

I found this in my journal a couple days after an all-nighter. I don’t remember writing it, but it was in my handwriting, so there’s a slim chance that anyone else planted it there. I figured that it’s worth sharing. Some stuff had to be cut out for personal reasons, but overall, I have a […]

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 […]

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 […]
