Winding Down

The year is almost over and everything is winding down – final projects are coming up and my workload is at an all time high. At the end of every year, I like to look back on my accomplishments. So much has happened over the last nine months and it’s important to recognize what I’ve done. Here is a list of some of my favorite memories from this year:

  • Discovered my interest in physics
  • Took my first computer science course
  • Studied geology on the North Shore of Lake Superior
  • Went to Australia
  • Pet a kangaroo
  • Played ultimate in California
  • Completed a paper on the public outreach strategies of environmental organizations
  • Drove to Georgia
  • Declared my major
  • Submitted my writing portfolio
  • Committed to studying abroad in Costa Rica

One of my favorite parts of blogging is getting to reflect on my year. I have so many wonderful memories and I’m so thankful for having had such a great year!


Jacob is a potential physics, math, and/or geology major (he’s indecisive) who appreciates the occasional anthropology or English class. Growing up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin has made it easy for Jacob to adapt to the Northfield winters, during which he likes to ski and go traying. In more agreeable weather Jacob enjoys going on outings with CANOE, the outdoors club, and playing Ultimate Frisbee on the Gods of Plastic, Carleton’s DIII men’s ultimate team.
