A window inside life at Augustana College

How I Keep it Current

I have written before on how much I have loved my time at Augie so far. One of the reasons that I love being an student here is WAUG. If you don’t know, WAUG is the student-run radio station on campus. Any student can have their own radio show for a few hours a week […]

A field trip in College?

I always thought field trips were for only for elementary school, junior high and high school. Certainly not college. I was glad I was wrong. Last Friday, our LC class took a trip to Springfield, IL to see Lincoln’s house, the Lincoln museum and the old state capitol. It was really fun! I love going to museums and […]


Sorry that it’s been forever since I blogged last. This term has been crazier than I could have ever expected. But, oh well I enjoy being busy. I have four classes, a job, a social life, and am active in a bunch of activities on campus. Oh, I guess I should probably mention that I […]

QUICK thought

Today as I dashed down the stairs to the college center, I noticed a flock of birds, maybe crows, chatting or whatever noise it is that birds make in flight. I couldn’t help but feel like they were laughing at me for trying to escape the cold. Jerks.

How I goats taught me about life

Since I got accepted to Augie, I’ve been pretty sure of what I would major in once I got the chance to declare it. Oh, Leslie, how stupid you are… Why is it that during your first few weeks at school, you’re asked what you want to major in. Everytime I had to introduce myself, I […]

Senior housing, internships, and the smell of Christmas

Oh my, what a busy term this has been!  I’ve hardly been able to catch my breath.  My classes this term require loads of reading and writing.  Thanksgiving was a nice break.  I had a wonderful time with my family filled with lots of turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, and so many desserts!  Being around […]

Rabbit Food

What’s playing in my ears: Volcano Choir: Island, IS   This week I decided to go raw vegan. Raw veganism, in addition to a moral conviction against the use of animal products, is based on the belief that the cooking and processing of foods removes much of the nutritional value. While I don’t necessarily subscribe to these […]

Christmastime is Here

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while…what can I say, college life gets away from you! I have good news…Christmas time is here! Let’s be honest, I started listening to Christmas music in the middle of November. I think that you have to start early to fully enjoy Christmas because it comes and goes so […]


I’m walking towards the entrance of Walmart when I first hear it, and oh dear Lord, I am frightened. Why are they here? It isn’t even Thanksgiving yet! OhGodohGodohGod. Ring-A-Ling-A-Ling  There is no way to avoid it, and to be honest, for a second, I think of forgetting the trip entirely. I mean, do I really need […]

3 break…4 break…3 break!

It’s been a while since my last blog. Last time I did this, I had just registered for winter term classes and was about to go on fall break. Many things have happened since then. I had expected winter term to be pretty much just like fall term, but was I wrong! There is a […]
