Thoughts for thoughts

Sitting at my desk attempting to do homework but just cant seem to get in the groove. Doesn’t help that my roommate and his girlfriend are giving each other butterfly kisses and giggling. Haha it really doesn’t bother me because they are 2 of my good friends but it just leaves me hear thinking to myself. What does the future look like for Kiefer Kious? Where will I be and what will I be doing? I have a plan and a goal but honestly no one knows. Should really be typing a paper but for once blogging felt like something different and all i can think about is change.  I never liked change but for some reason that is all I want now a days. I have urges to actually study and read for fun. Every day I feel like change is a part of my life and I couldn’t be happier. Unfortunately, I’m not quite sure what that means. The better part of me tells me it’s a good thing though :). Thought I would give some simple and long over due thoughts for today.

Home Sweet Home

Though my title may be misleading I do mean it feels good to be back home at Augie. I am grateful for the summer that I had because I got to spend it with the most important thing in my life… family. However with that being said it is great to be back on campus with my second family. As soon as i moved in on Tuesday I immediately began to see my fraternity brothers and great friends come and greet me. The little things matter to me and they are what drive my determination to become the best I can be and to observe the true potential that only I conceal. I have a long and very busy school year ahead of me but I know that everyone has my back and are here to help me whenever I need it. Home Sweet Home for sure!! I will post a picture of my family later today.

I know I haven’t posted in awhile but I’m sitting here at my desk just thinking to myself what I’m going to do. There is one week left of school and things are running through my head so fast. I am studying and focusing on my grades to finish the year strong but I cant stop thinking about family and friends. I have a lot of work to do in this last week and a half or so. Right now it just seems so impossible and all this weight is on my shoulders. I have always juggled so many things in my life and stress never really got to me. However, right now I am having second thoughts about some things and I just need to fight through it. I’ve never really had to think so much about some things in my life. Now I am at my desk in the middle of a Sunday night just writing a blog. I am confident everything will workout but for now I need to keep my head down and do everything in my power to get what I want and what I work for.


Just finished week one of pledging. Not a whole lot to say but it has been a little overwhelming and a test of my time management. Spring term has been great so far and it can only get better from here. I’m meeting so many people and even alumni that I cant think of all the names. My experience at Augustana is great and I cant say i regret anything I’ve done so far. I just hope that others are having the experience I am getting. 

Week 9 and 10 have been busy but can’t wait until Texas trip with my golf bros this spring… Then its back to campus for pledging.

And the recruitment for Augustana greek life begins!!!

Couldn’t be more excited to meet more people and get a feel for the different fraternities.

Haven’t posted in awhile but the new year and birthday has been wonderful. Optimistic about the rest of Winter term and cant wait to see all my friends.
