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!

Spring in Duluth

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

Hello all! Today I wanted to talk about the weather. I understand that this is a topic usually discussed as awkward small talk, when talking about a natural disaster, or when maybe you hear it when you turn the news on in the morning as background noise; whatever your case may be I wanted to talk about the weather in the case of Spring time in Duluth. This past week has been CRAZY when it comes to weather. I have lived in Minnesota my entire life and I thought that I knew a lot about the weather and it’s patterns of unpredictability; I was wrong. This week in Duluth the weather goes as follows; Tuesday: rain, Wednesday: cloudy, Thursday: snow and ice, Friday: Sunny, and today: sunny. I don’t know how it can be snowing one day and then completely sunny and 65 degrees the next day, but in Duluth, MN, that is what happens. However, I wouldn’t change this unpredictability for anything. Today is BEAUTIFUL and the fact that we had snow the other day, makes it that much better.
