    Kristen Volstad ONE. MORE. DAY.  I will be in the shower less than 24 hours from now. Oh my goodness. Like, I really hope the others are joking about doing a sniff test on our feet on the last day because they. are. rank.  Last night I was warm and cozy thanks to the excellent ​spot John and […]

    Kristen Volstad  ​​This morning started with the mostly frozen remnants of last night’s pizza (thanks, campus security!) and a CTV interview sitting six inches away from Autumn’s sleeping body. At least she got to sleep in. Eventfulness continued as Shay forgot the key to the office at home. After a few classes I went to […]

    Anja Eliasson Jackpot! Sleept really well yesterday (spelling mistake intended)! My biggest fear of having to wake up in the middle of the night to pee came true last night but it actually went quite well. I did however wake most of the others up so I’m really sorry about that my little orange family! […]

    Night 2!  Autumn LaRose-Smith March 12th, 2018 Update: Last night was on the worst end of bearable mostly because we were all incredibly naïve to what was about to unfold. In the beginning it felt like I was going to get more sleep than when I’m sleeping at home, who even goes to bed at […]

    Kristen Volstad:  Last night I got the privilege to sleep inside a house, in a warm bed. Tonight, I’ll be sleeping outside in an attempt to empathize with homeless youth who face this challenge every day. While I will never fully be able to relate, I am excited to raise funds and awareness to aid these […]

    Max Mykytyzyn:  This week there were a lot of moments when I thought to myself, “Why am I doing this?” And I always thought of this story: Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the […]

    Crystal Lau:  This was such an amazing way to spend my birthday! I woke up to my theme song “Don’t rain on my parade” between my 5D4H fam, I received a bday song by a class for 200+ people after a classroom announcement, and I received a lot of personal, face-to-face birthday messages rather than […]

    Crystal Lau:  People from E-Gadz visited us last night? We had a wake up song this morning? I don’t recall any of that, because I HAD A GOOD SLEEP!!  From the exhaustion the night before, all of us fell asleep pretty quick and did not wake up too much in the middle of the night. […]

    Robert Mohrbutter:  Dear Mom, I slept outside last night. It was really really cold but I survived. I’m sleeping outside again tonight and will not sleep in a bed until Friday. I know you must be very concerned about me but I want you to know that I’m safe and well. Luckily I am only […]

    Robert Mohrbutter:  Spending Sunday night at the university is never fun. It’s even worse without any of the ordinary comforts; no tea, no TV and most of all no phone. I’m nervous about sleeping outside tonight but I’m also anxious and excited. I’m getting to the point where my curiosity is taking over and I […]
