A window inside life at Augustana College

Hats! Hats for Sale!

Hello! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? If you are in the Midwest, you know it is pretty cold. And when I say that, I mean it is absolutely freezing outside. Absolute zero would be warmer…maybe. If you live somewhere warm (AKA not the Midwest), here’s a picture: Now, I’ve noticed that Augustana students are […]

Northern IL vs. St. Louis – The Winter Weather Showdown

For those that don’t know me well (or just haven’t read my blog intro), I’m originally from a small town in northern Illinois called Sycamore. It’s just about a two-hour drive east on 88, and I’ve spent most of my life there. In March, my family made the move to St. Louis. I recently had […]

Well that was fun…

So I woke up today thinking it was going to be like any other winter day….cold and windy  but when I got outside I realized I would have much rather preferred it to be just that.  Instead, I got cold, windy, rainy, and icy.  At first, I was not to hot for the ice…haha get…but […]
