30-Hour Famine

Hello, readers! I was just calculating it and I haven’t been at Luther for more than two weeks in a row since the beginning of March! Because spring break and Easter break were so close, Luther had two four day weeks of school. Then, this past weekend, I went on another Outreach Outing.

This event calls for youth to fast for 30 hours, bringing awareness to the millions who are chronically hungry in this world.

Alright With Me

    Here I sit in an overflowing Oneota Market, listening to other Luther students reuniting with friends after J-Term, exchanging stories of adventures that accrued throughout the month. I have already heard most of the happenings from my two roommates’ adventures, and had a few days off to prepare for spring semester which started last week.

J-Term Love

    The one year anniversary of LCSO’s grand concert in the Vienna Konzerthaus has me reminiscing about Vienna more than ever with my roommate who has recently returned from Europe. Trading stories back and forth, I can’t help but be thankful for my experience and I still vow to go back someday. Ok, reminiscing over.

J-Term Land

Another week in J-Term Land and it feels like it’s been a month since I’ve last written. Syllabus-wise, I suppose this is accurate!
