Just like at home, there was a Friday night movie night tonight in the field house. I watched Inside Out and it was adorable! It was nice to relax with some friends and not worry about homework for once. I have some work to do this weekend though, since I didn't do anything tonight. If you're ever bored on a weekend, find a 56 nights activity!!
The Kiwi is an iconic bird for New Zealand. It's also the nickname/slang term to call New Zealand residents. And a delicious fruit. The reason it's so iconic it's that's it's an endangered species the country is trying to protect. It's became endangered as the number of pest species increase like feral cats, rats, and possums. Bushy Park is a reserve in Whanganui we spent a day at that's doing just that. The have an area of land that is fenced off to keep out predators, they also have traps to catch any pests. Bringing the kiwi population back to where they should be is a project many New Zealanders take part in. Here is a picture of kiwi footprints we found while taking a tour through the reserve.
I can finally say that I have witnessed the glensheen mansion. It was an awesome experience, especially if you have read some of the history behind the family. I would recommend going, especially if you like some Duluth history!

This past Wednesday we had a day off of school for campus wide community day. Me and the tennis team cleaned a highway on I-35. We picked up traff and various litter for a total of 4 miles. It felt good to do something nice for the community with my teammates and we got done by 1pm. The rest of the day I did homework and baked an apple pie. What a great community day!
