Student in Residence: Natalie's Blog Entry 9

Posted on January 18, 2019 in Student in Residence

Hello residents of OLWT!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I am so thrilled to be back here at my home and take on another semester of spending time with each one of you. This semester, I am making an effort to spend time in all parts of OLWT. I will be holding Porch Stories not only in Thurber Tower, but also in the Bistro! I would love to have all residents at these events.

Porch Stories meets Wednesday mornings at 10am in the Thurber Tower Art Studio beginning on January 23.  Porch Stories will meet in the Bistro instead on 2/13, 3/6 and 4/10.  We will not be meeting on March 13 or 20.  Our last session of the year is on April 24.

Like many of us, the month of December was crazy – filled with finals, working, family time, and lots and lots of food. I also got to bring my dog here, a wonderful and exciting experience because she got to meet you lovely residents!


I’m almost thankful for the month of January (although it’s rather dismal), because of the snow! The city almost feels more peaceful, covered in a blanket of wintry snow. I can relax with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate and watch a movie. That’s indeed why winter is my favorite season. I also have a beautiful view of the city and snow from my balcony!

I’d love to hear about your favorite winter activities! Let me know in the comments below. Have a safe weekend and stay warm!
