Blinking

Here's to continuing the journey...

Here’s to continuing the journey…

I think I blinked during my high school graduation and suddenly became a junior in college.

It doesn’t seem quite right, that I should be halfway done with college. I feel like I just got here. And I know I’ll probably blink before bed tonight and suddenly be standing at commencement, ready (or not) to go out into the world with a college degree.

My, does time fly. Completely cliché, but entirely true… as clichés usually seem to be.

This year was awesome in many ways. I got to sing in choir again, make some new friends and keep in contact with old, and take some pretty amazing classes. I learned a bit about the history of the English language, read some amazing pieces (classics and student works), did a research paper on Harry Potter, and even learned a bit about a fetal pig. I can’t wait to continue to learn more and widen my world view and take some more really, really cool courses. I’m grateful for two more years, but I’m also a bit nervous. I know they will go super quickly.

I’m getting a bit ahead of myself now though. For now, I’m going to enjoy summer… watch some movies and read a ton of good books (I’m working on my reading list for break, and I’m so excited to delve into new stories and authors!). I’m going to take advantage of the opportunities I have at work. And then, in the fall, I’ll return to the dorm and return to my friends and classes. And I’ll try to soak up every minute… which is hard sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

And eventually, I’ll go to the next step, whatever and wherever that may be. But, I’ll figure that out in a few more blinks. 🙂

Hello! My name is Ali, and I am so incredibly excited to share my thoughts with the COBBlog! I am from Dilworth, MN (basically a suburb of Moorhead), graduated from Oak Grove Lutheran High School in Fargo, and I plan on majoring in English (either literature or writing… decisions, decisions…).

I grew up to the recorded sounds of piano music and occupied myself with the whims of my imagination. In high school I was involved in choir and theatre and fell in love with my AP English Literature class. In my free time, I love listening to music, reading, playing piano, and watching movies/television shows. I have a rather unfortunate sweet tooth and an unconditional love for bread. And, most importantly, I could not be more excited to be a part of the Cobber community! I am looking forward to see where the next four years take me!
