It's Quiet...Too Quiet

A few days ago, I made my first trip back to C of I's campus since leaving last year's Baccalaureate ceremony. I had received a couple of e-mails earlier in the week that had encouraged me to stop by Caldwell, and funnily enough, they both involved receiving stuff I had been expecting for a while. With the promise of an old music binder and a new camera waiting for me, I made the half hour trek from Meridian to the college, which happened to be much more quiet since my last visit.

How to see campus in a different light

So all day yesterday, I was tramping around campus with my camera, and all I did was shoot panoramas. I took nearly 1,000 odd photos, which were stitched up into 4 good panoramas, and a few absolutely horrid ones. I just started taking panoramas, inspired by the work of Jan Boles, who is the campus archivist/historian. You can see his work at www.JanBoles.com.

So here are the panoramas:

Team Senior

Last Friday night, a group of about 25 seniors rallied together to cheer on the Idaho Steelheads hockey team.  The event served as an incentive for seniors to donate to the Boone Fund, as it was required to donate before attending.  It was a great way for members of our class to spend time together before we graduate in less than two months.  (Eek!)  I personally had never been to a Steelheads game, and had such a fun time!  First, we got a free hot dog, soda, and bag of chips...score!  Then, the game was equally exciting.

I came to College to live in a basement

I love checking my mail at the College. I could have most of my mail be sent to my house where I live, but it’s just more satisfying having to use your own special key to unlock your box. It proves much more of a rewarding sensation when something comes in the mail, like today when I signed for a t-shirt that I had ordered from DesignByHumans.com arrived. The mail staff is always super friendly and quick. I had a funny moment as I signed my name to receive my package when the attendant on duty asked me about my last name (I feel bad, because she knew my name but I still don’t know hers.

Why it can be a good thing to run around naked once a year

My third winter at The College of Idaho. I’ve returned with the rest of my classmates to our academic home. I’ve been fortunate in my life to have many uneventful Christmases and this year was one of them. I spent the majority of the break recuperating and cooking leisurely meals with friends at the Haus before returning home, and then after a short road-trip to Washington, I returned on New Years Eve.
