    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Making the most of Dining Dollars, in 2 days!!

by / May 9th, 2018 / Comments Off on Making the most of Dining Dollars, in 2 days!!
The last week of the semester has sprung out from nowhere and suddenly, I find myself in a dilemma. I have about $50 dining dollars left (I know, I couldn't believe it either!) and these will be void if I don't spend them by the end of this week (tomorrow maybe?!). Other students are finding themselves in similar or worse positions and I couldn't help but share my spending stratagem: Read the rest of this entry »

“I open at the close”

by / May 9th, 2018 / Comments Off on “I open at the close”
You know it has been a rough week when I start thinking about good ole Harry Potter and his experience with the Resurrection Stone. For some reason, Dumbledore's hint "I open at the close" came to my mind as I was thinking how tomorrow marks the close of yet another year of academic rigor and challenges, and the start (eh, open?) of something new.

Visit to the Superior Water Treatment Plant!

by / May 7th, 2018 / Comments Off on Visit to the Superior Water Treatment Plant!
Earlier today, my Honors class visited a water treatment facility in Superior! We were hosted by the facility's Water Resources Specialist, Andrea C., who went on to lead us on a tour around the facility. I learned a great deal about how stormwater and wastewater is handled and treated, before being released into Lake Superior. Going through each of the processes involved in the treatment cycle gave me an appreciation of the role and work that the facility does on a daily basis.

2 done, 2 more to go!

by / May 7th, 2018 / Comments Off on 2 done, 2 more to go!
This past week, I had a lot on my plate with a number of presentations, a final quiz, and some papers to submit. With all that out of the way, I was able to reduce my class load to only 2 classes and I am excited to have completed all the requirements for half of my classes. This week, I have another exam and a paper to submit before I can officially say, I am done! I will be studying hard over the next couple days in preparation and wrapping up the semester!
