The coolest job. Ever.

For the past 4 weeks, I have been in and out of my office, traveling to high schools for visits and college fairs. I have met with students from all across the state, with my most recent travels taking me from Watertown to Monticello, from St. Cloud to Morris, and from Willmar to Alexandria.

I have also traveled to Anoka, Andover, Champlin Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka, Mound Westonka, Maple Grove, Waconia, Mayer Lutheran, Prior Lake, Shakopee, Princeton, Cathedral, Eden Prairie, St. Michael Albertville, Elk River, Burnsville, and Chanhassen and Chaska high schools. Whew!

Not to be forgotten, I spent the beginning of October in Minneapolis, chatting with dozens and dozens of interested students at the National College Fair. Yep. I’ve been busy and my head has just barely stayed on straight — at one point, I found my car keys in the hotel refrigerator.

Yet despite the crazed hustle and bustle of fall travel, I still believe I have the coolest job. Ever. I get to step away from the confines of my office and explore our great state during my favorite season of the year. I get to meet with eager, energetic students who are hungry for information about CSS and the city of Duluth. I get to bring a little piece of St. Scholastica with me to share with every student, parent, and guidance counselor I meet. Did I mention I also get to indulge in some hotel cable television? HGTV, I’ve missed you.

What’s more…when I am in the office, my department hosts some of the best staff retreats. Ever. This summer, we dined and made wine. This fall, we picnicked and played yard games. I also got to show off my awesome bean bag skills, and went undefeated with my bags partner, thank-you-very-much. See pictures of our awesomeness below.

Our lunch spread - YUM.

Joe & Pam, starting things off.

Beth's best throw of the day; I think the green team won.

Looks like a heated bocce ball debate.
