It almost seems as though the Swedish sun arrived late to the party, realized it was lagging behind and is now playing a serious game of catch-up. When we arrived, “daylight” hours were from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Tim Badmington ruminates on the big questions as a philosophy major in his junior year at Colby. Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland, this Mid-Atlantic native is a New Englander at heart. Spring semester will bring a continent’s worth of new experiences for Tim as he kicks the tires on socialism on the windy shores of the Baltic Sea in Stockholm, Sweden. A career in journalism isn’t on the horizon, so Tim’s never worked for a publication (besides the Echo, of course) although he did spend a couple of summers stacking 12-packs for Canada Dry. His most precious writing project comes in 140-character thoughtlets under the nom de tweet @timbadtweets.
