Duluth Lifestyle

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

You learn to love it if you don’t already. 

The air is crisp from the lake. You realize you’re in the city that embodies “fall” best of all. Take advantage of the nature around you. Walk, hike, bike, explore, get lost, and find new places before snow falls. Enjoy this time of the year. It will become your favorite! 

Summer Green Thumb

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

My girlfriend and I recently stopped by Cummings Greenhouse, located on W Arrowhead rd. in Duluth, to pick up some vegetables for the summer. We decided on tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, broccoli, basil, and cilantro. We tried cucumbers, peppers, and green beans last year but they became challenging with out limited space. It is fun to tend to a garden and have a little bit of responsibility of watering and tending to the vegetables throughout the summer. We also thoroughly enjoy when we can harvest our veggies and incorporate them into our meals.

Summer Job Search

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

As a native to Duluth I will be here all summer and the job search is on. Ideally, I want to find something relevant to what I’m pursuing for graduate school, however, realistically that’s pretty difficult when I’m looking for a 3-month position. During undergrad, finding internships was extremely easy with the help of the career guidance counselors and work study programs. Now, I don’t qualify for many of these internships so competition is much higher. While I am still looking for work relevant to marketing, public relations, and advertising, I have accepted that I may just need to find something that will be fun for me to do. Maybe I will work in one of the tourist shops down town or somewhere fun like Adventure Zone. Duluth has tons of job opportunities, I just need to look a little harder. 

May 1st!

Monday, May 1st, 2017

It’s snowing. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love snow… But there comes a point where I don’t want to see it for three months straight unless I go on a vacation to the arctic. I don’t want to see it on May 1st. It’s not a lot. The picture hardly shows the white flecks, but still, it’s May 1st!!!!! Oh Duluth, you are a crazy city. 

Duluth Spring Weekend

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

This weekend was filled with a lot of adventure and activity. The weather was absolutely beautiful for all kinds of outdoor plans. Below are a few pictures that I captured this weekend as I enjoyed the outdoors in Duluth with my friends and girlfriend. With such great spring weather I am excited for summer to get here…we might have to wait a few weeks. The weather outlook is showing 3-5 inches of snow on Thursday. Crazy how you can get a sunburn one day in Duluth and a couple days later you have to put your snow boots back on!
