Adventures with the CSS Enterprise

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

If you are a Star Trek fan, then perhaps the USS Enterprise came to your mind. This post is a narrative of a recent adventure, not in space, but on the road with one of the CSS Enterprise fleet vehicles. The car rental company, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, has a few vehicles stationed on campus for the college community to use (at a cost of course). Last week, a friend and I decided to utilize this resource and go grocery shopping.

Late Classes

Friday, February 23rd, 2018

This morning, around 6:00am, I got an email and a text from St. Scholastica stating that classes were being pushed until a start time of 10am.  I was very relieved about this because it’s very stressful getting up really early in the morning and driving to school when the roads are awful.  I ended up coming to school around 9am, and the main roads were just fine to drive on, and that was reassuring for the people who actually have to travel from far distances to school.  I struggled getting out of my housing development a little bit, but the rest of the drive was a breeze.  Getting to school early is allowing me to get a lot of things done versus staying at home and sleeping in more.  I am more productive in different environments so that is what I decided to do today.  I hope everyone drives safe and has a wonderful Friday!!!

Men’s Basketball

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Last night, I went to the Men’s Semifinal Playoff game that took place at the Reif.  We decided to make it a white-out to hopefully get more students to the game.  The Men’s team was ranked ahead of Northwestern, and they had been very supportive of the Women’s Volleyball team.  I returned the favor, and there were so many people there!! It was really awesome to see.  The Softball and Baseball teams, Football team, Volleyball team, and women’s Hockey team were all there, plus whatever other fans decided to come!  The gym was pretty packed entirely, and the game was so close.  The boys actually ended up losing right in the last 2 minutes, when they weren’t making baskets but the other team was.  It was very sad to see them perform in their last game of the year, but I’m sure I wasn’t as sad as they were.  Good luck to any other winter sports that are still in season!!! And good luck to the new spring sports teams!!!

Snowstorms

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Honestly, just when you think that the weather is starting to turn around and become nice again, think again.  We have had some pretty great weather in Duluth recently, and it’s bumming me out about how much snow we are getting currently.  Yesterday I would say we got around 4-6 inches, and it supposed to continue today and a little bit tomorrow even.  I hope that everyone else (besides the skiers) are wishing for the snow to just get gone, but maybe I’m the only one.  I don’t mind having 30-40 degree weather, but I can’t seem to appreciate the loads of snow we get at this time of the year.  Technically in about a month and a day it’s the first day of spring, so mother nature better start that transition so it happens!!! Drive safe everyone, leave early and please please don’t be a silly driver!!!

Lutsen Ski Trip

Friday, February 16th, 2018

This Sunday is the Lutsen Ski and Snowboarding Trip with Outdoor Pursuit.  I am going with my roommate and we are both skiers.  We are both super excited to get up and ski a little bit, and it’s been a long time since I have gone.  I will probably be a little rusty because of this, but we do have all day long to ski, so it should be super fun!! Aside from my roommate, I know 3 other friends of  mine that are going, so that should also make it a fun time too!! I hope that the snow isn’t too terrible on Sunday, because it is harder to ski when it’s harder to see from the snow.  Overall, I think there are a lot of different trips that are being planned in these next couple months, so if you like the outdoors, check out the Outdoor Pursuit Calendar and sign up for something!!!
