    Yoga Teacher Training

    April 6, 2014

    I began a program in September to become a 200 hour Registered Yoga Instructor. One weekend a month, I travel to Minnesota to complete my program - something that is a welcome break from campus life, but also leaves me feeling like I'm missing out on what's going on at Luther.  Read more...

    Seven Weeks - What!?

    March 30, 2014

    Spring break is officially over and today marks seven weeks until the end of the semester. It's crazy how quickly time seems to be going by -- my spring break trip to Spain feels like it happened weeks ago, and it's even crazier to think that I'm almost halfway done with my time at Luther!  Read more...

    Life as a Sophomore

    March 10, 2014

    Zora wrote a really beautiful, honest blog post this week that left me inspired to be a little more forthright in this week's post. While I've tried to make this blog "real" and to not sugarcoat anything, I have also tried to paint Luther in a really good light. So, this week, I'm going to write about what it is like to be a sophomore.

    "Spring" Semester

    February 12, 2014

    Spring semester started a week ago today (although the weather seems to dictate otherwise). The beginning of the semester is always a little bit tough for me. Part of this is being really overwhelmed at the start of the semester - I always feel like I have over-committed myself with too many places to go and too many things to do.  Read more...
