  • Today I was presented with the task of telling a brief story about a moment of my afternoon; a tale of a typical day turned around in a delightful fashion. On any other Wednesday, I am presented with a gauntlet of classes wide in both their breadth and time. Seeing as how we bird-mammals are now experimenting with cultivation, I consider my story of the lunch that should not have happened as most fitting.

    As a college freshman at a liberal arts college, I'm faced with the challenge of learning as much as I can about as much as I can; a study that is rather interesting yet difficult. My mornings, thankfully, are kind to me, and I start class well after the sun has risen from her sleepy loop.

    My first task of the day is Finnish, a joyful exploration of a country known for their fantastic education system and language. "Puhutko sinä suomea?" "En, mutta opsikelen suomea!" The language is quite logical, yet seems to be full of exceptions that make figuring bits and pieces out even more rewarding. Let's not forget the delightful foods offered in Finland, which I have been lucky enough to try a few of. "Minä pidan pulla! Tossi tossi pulla!"

    This is where the day went in a completely different direction.

    Now, here I am, once again home and facing this delicious plate of combination taco, salad, and what I presume to be some other form of taco. I look forward to seeing where I go from here.

    As they would say in Finland, or perhaps not, as my text book is rather silly,
