To the Uncomfortable Freshman

Almost exactly a year ago, I was a freshman headed up to McCall with the entire C of I Class of 2015 for the McCall Wilderness Experience.  The Class of 2016 is days away from making the same trip. 

What I Miss Today 2.0

The photo included is one that I found on Lady Danville's blog, posted September 17, 2011 with a caption reading "Sushi, Compliments of College of Idaho."

This morning as I went to jump in the shower I turned on Pandora and a song by Lady Danville lit up my speakers.  It was then that it occurred to me, this is what I miss today about C of I.

Why I am so important (Because I am from a different country)

So recently in my trips around campus, I came across the news that we are getting a sizable amount of international students for this coming year. On talking to our Dean of Enrollment, Brian, (Actually, I am going to go on a tangent here, but I love the fact that I can just walk unannounced into the offices of anyone while they are around. The small college atmosphere is refreshing after going to schools with systems more rigid then the doors of Fort Knox.

Cute Bunny Photos, and Photos of Rocks

So a few weeks ago, In the chicken coop, I discovered baby rabbits. In 3 weeks time, those creatures transformed from small naked mole rat look alikes to cute balls of fur. Here are some pictures:

Also, I have started making  a sculpture, if you would call it that, in my front yard. Here again, are some pictures:

Workouts for the average Yotie

These are the three best College of Idaho workouts destined towards the end of the year:

1) Moving out!  Not only are your arms super “swoll” by your eighth trip to the car, but when you are lucky enough to live on third floor Finney (lucky me…) your legs feel the burn, too.  The mini fridge takes a lot of dexterity and nimbleness taking corners, which is an awesome combination with the forty pounds of metal. So sweet, so sweet. 

The Best Event on Campus

This is top secret information.  I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I discovered a little known fact about C of I...

A year full of memories

Well here it comes; the end of the year. Students were packing up their rooms and heading home all last week. Cleaning out the dorms is a passage. Just like “striking” a set at the end of a show is to help you put away the memories and help you move on, moving out of the dorms for the summer is a way of reminiscing on the past year and packing up those memories and moving on.

Surviving Spring

This time of year (I discovered by using my awesome freshman observing skills) is dangerous. The evil sun beckons. It beckons each and every one of us to unlock our inner child and lay out in the sun, play frisbee, and climb trees.

It's hard to do anything else but spend the entire day outside. Even though I really wish i could spend an entire day outside, i can't. For many it can be difficult to find the motivation to carry on, especially for seniors who are experiencing symptoms of senioritis at this time.
