A window inside life at Augustana College

Bittersweet Endings and New Beginnings

It’s Spring Break which means that Spring Term brings the last 10 weeks of my senior year and my last 10 weeks at Augustana before I enter the real world. I think the experience is bittersweet. Only in college are you able to live 10-15 minutes away from all your friends and experience so many new and exciting things. Life is a lot simpler in my mind. However, graduation is inevitable so I am keeping a positive attitude and celebrating a new beginning. I am graduating from college five days before my 22nd birthday. No one knows what tomorrow will bring so it’s time to enjoy the end of my time at Augustana and get excited for the future. It is scary. That is very true. But,  it is also exciting. I will share more information as it happens. I finished one of my senior inquiries this term which took some weight of my shoulders. I am very proud of my work. Next term, I am taking a lot of fun classes. I am very excited!




Count your age by friends, not years.

Count your life by smiles, not tears.


We all take different paths in life

but no matter where we go

we take a little of each other everywhere.

-Tim McGraw

There are only two ways to live your life

one is as though nothing is a miracle

the other is as though everything is a miracle.

-Albert Einstein

Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment

until it becomes a memory.
