Molly Sperlich: What was the hardest part about coming to college, or the biggest thing you learned?
Abigale Jensen: It was hard keeping myself on track with my classes, and so I learned how to get better at being organized.
MS: How is Vermillion different from your hometown?
AJ: It’s definitely bigger here. I’m from a really small town, so I don’t know, there is not really much to miss.
MS: How do you feel about all the snow we have been having, do you like the winter?
AJ: Not really, it seems like home though, I’m used to a lot of snow.
MS:What is your favorite winter activity?
AJ: I like to go ice skating.
MS: Did you do competitive ice skating, or is more of a recreational thing?
AJ: No, I have never competed. I just like doing it for fun.
MS: Do you have any fun plans for spring break?
AJ: I am going to go to Des Moines with my boyfriend to see his parents.
MS: If you could go anywhere over spring break, where would you go?
AJ: I would probably go somewhere tropical because it’s so cold here, so I’d wanna go somewhere I could lay on a beach.
MS: So, is summer your favorite season?
AJ: Yes it is, you get to have a little more fun and be more carefree.
MS: Do you have a job during the summer?
AJ: Yes, I work two jobs. I am a CNA and a waitress.
MS: What’s your favorite summer activity?
AJ: I like to go hiking around Custer State Park, I guess that’s one thing I miss about home is the Black Hills.
