I've heard a lot about the coagulative properties of the Family Dinner: families who sit down and eat dinner and talk about their day together are supposed to be better off than families who eat in front of the TV. I remember posters in middle school touting that "Famlies that Eat Together, Stay Together."
3-5 credits packed into four tiny weeks…The sheer chaos begins!
In all honesty, Winter Term here at the C of I is quite nice. Yes, you may have a workload that exceeds that of Apple’s CEO, however you have all day to do it. The days feel long, but the weeks feel short, and everyone falls into a steady little rhythm.
My parents are pastors. So even while still in my mommy’s belly, I was making tamales. Every year the church would make tamales to help raise funds and I would always help. As a small child I learned how to use a spoon to spread masa on dozens of tamales. We would make up to 250 tamales every time. Over the years my tamale skills improved and I was spouting up to three tma (tamales a minute)! I learned how to fill tamales with the meat and how to cook them. Recently before coming to the College of Idaho I learned how to make the masa.
It’s fall break here at The College. I’ve spent most of this week lounging at my house, watching a lot of movies and catching up on reading. So seeing that this week has a bit of downtime to it regarding college activities, I thought I’d share a bit of one of my past experiences at The College.
There are a lot of reasons why I came to The College of Idaho. Naturally, now that I’ve been here for a few years, I have even more reasons why I couldn’t bear to leave.
Whew! I'm glad that’s over. You know what I’m talking about: Midterm week. That was intense! Yes, I am sure many of my fellow bloggers have stated otherwise (no offense to them; I love them dearly), but I am a dramatic freshman; and for me it was a very intense, stressful, midterm week.
You know how much I love the cafeteria. But sometimes, I just feel like I need to get out of our bubble and have some of my own culinary adventures. Here are some of the top Caldwell eateries which earn the votes of your C of I peers - based on quality, price, and experience – we approve.
I’m in college. A conversation with two or more people can’t last too long without it eventually turning towards Jimmy Stewart or Harry Potter.
I read the series. I’m familiar with all the Potter lore. I hated the movies. People (girls) rag on me all the time about this. I hate them. But the great thing about talking about these teenage wizards is that it’s easy to draw a lot of lines between the fantasy of Hogwarts and our campus.
I’m back on campus! Having two-a-day volleyball practices with ResLife training in between has been exhausting. One thing that has kept me going by providing delicious sustenance is the newly remodeled cafeteria! It looks beautiful and has so many great new additions.
