A window inside life at Augustana College


Okay, so, it wasn’t today, but it has happened twice this week… Here’s what happened (kudos to any who know the Monk reference!): I’m just chillin’ in my bed, sleeping the morning away like I usually do, and a tour knocks, and just as I’m awakening from my slumber, they walk in. Keep in mind, […]

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 […]

Childhood Catches Up

Well, to be honest- it’s been a struggling week, what with allergies, being sick, and midterms, yuck.  However….thankfully the weekend has much in store! Which brings me to my next point: Childhood, and the fact that mine has never really left me.  For example, tonight I will be going with a group of rambunctious friends for the […]

Daily Rice

It’s incredibly difficult to simply write this first post and be done with it; it must display a personality and a physique of its own! It cannot be drab and dull, you know? When you take someone whose eccentricities must not fail to be […]

Looking between the lines

What’s happening in these ears: Grizzly Bear: Two Weeks Iron and Wine: Boy with a Coin   In case y’all didn’t notice, it was BEAUTIFUL today. And it’s days like this that sometimes just scream for skipping out on a bit of homework and risking tardiness to go out and enjoy it. So I did. […]

Rooming with my Best Friend

When most people heard that my best friend and I were to be rooming together, all I got as a response was an unenthusiastic ‘that’s nice’ or an ‘aren’t you guys going to get sick of each other?’ Personally, I was so glad to be able to experience something completely new with someone that I […]

A summer that will never be forgotten

Even though summer ended about a month ago, I think about my summer every single day. Through a summer internship program at American University, I was able to go and intern on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C, for nine incredible weeks. Within those nine weeks, I had the opportunity to see these people speak: Colin Powell, […]

Carefree Times in the Library

 Though the library is the place to get much work done Kristen and I are not very good at that. While others were at their steady pace of doing homework Kristen and I went on an adventure with our friend Jasen’s camera. This picture is one of the many that was taken. Now, don’t let […]
