Weekends, College Edition

Posted on Saturday, January 9th, 2016 by Ali Froslie

I dug my car out from under its blanket of snow earlier this week, so it was already clear and ready to go this morning.

Weekends. Who doesn’t love ’em?

In college, weekends mean a much desired break from classes and the option of more hours in which to procrastinate homework. There’s usually not a shortage of things to do, should you desire to find something. The Campus Entertainment Commission usually puts on a few events (usually Thursday or Friday… sometimes Saturday). Clubs and committees meet. Friends make plans. Students procrastinate.

My weekends tend to vary week to week. This weekend has actually been fairly busy, but some weekends I find myself with nothing planned (which is totally fine too!). Those free weekends I usually spend doing homework, getting lost in the endless cycle of YouTube videos (you know what I mean… one Ellen video turns into ten), or doing something else that I enjoy (like knitting). This weekend I’ve done some of that too, despite having things planned. Friday night I attended a movie night that was held in the Maize… The Intern with Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway. I had seen the movie previously but liked it enough that I wanted to go back for a second viewing. Saturday morning I woke up early, braved the crazy cold temperatures, and drove to a local church where we had our winter choir retreat. We rehearsed, laughed a lot, and ate some really good pizza.

So, there is always something to keep busy with in college. But never fear, there’s also time for doing nothing as well. This evening I’m sitting on my couch with the luxury of knowing there’s nothing completely pressing that I have to do. My knitting bag is staring at me temptingly, and my American literature anthology is sitting by my side like a true companion. It’ll be a good night. 🙂

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!
