Flash Flood

I have been hearing that there is bad weather coming through Duluth and the rest of Minnesota!! I really personally enjoy storms, especially at night and sleeping to the sound of rain and thunder. So far at home the weather isn't that bad, but it might rain throughout the night. My sister has been updating me in Duluth and there has been huge cracks of lightning in the sky and booming thunder that's shaking her house. Those kinds of storms are super fun to me as long as I'm inside and they are still somewhat safe. I realize bad things happen to people in storms, but I've been pretty fortunate all my life to not have to deal with storm damage. I just wonder why this month has been so wet compared to other years!! It's crazy to see how much rain we have gotten over just the past couple of weeks. Stay dry everyone!!!

2nd Year Research

by / July 21st, 2017 / No Comments »

Throughout our second year of PT school we plan and carry out research in small groups with a faculty advisor. Our faculty advisor was Dr. John Borstad and our research that we conducted was exploratory research on the mechanism of the shoulder, more specifically the shoulder capsule and its sensitivity. Different advisors have different topics they like to research. For example, both of Dr. Borstad groups look at the shoulder, Dr. Ogston groups looked at running, etc. Read the rest of this entry »

Park Point

Now that the weather is turning around and becoming nicer in Duluth, I see a lot of my friends are going to Park Point to lay on the beach. Park Point is across the lift bridge in Canal, and basically covers the whole shoreline to your left when you're driving. Park Point is packed with people on the warm days, but it makes sense for people to enjoy the weather while it is nice outside! I'm not sure how warm Lake Superior is, but usually it's pretty cold all year long. I would definitely take a dip in the water if I was hot to cool down. I'm looking forward to volleyball preseason because we go to the lake to swim and do workouts every year!! Hope everyone in Duluth is living it up while the weather stays nice 

Books!

by / July 20th, 2017 / No Comments »
Now is the time to order your books. For the past two years, I usually buy books about two to three weeks before the semester starts. This is not a great idea because I always end up going to class without a book. This year, I am buying my books early enough so that I don't have to worry about the first few days of class without the book. In addition, It would not be a bad idea to read a chapter or two of the new book just to get a little jump start!

Study Abroad!

by / July 20th, 2017 / No Comments »
I signed up for a China Study Abroad program. The course will go for about three weeks in various cities in China for the Winter Break. I am excited for this once in a life time opportunities. This course is perfect because it will be taught in English throughout and because it is only three weeks long. I can not study abroad for a whole semester because it will push me back a semester and won't be able to graduate on time. I have heard great things about this program and I am excited for this. It will be my first time flying internationally so a bit nervous but it will be worth it!
