Move in!

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

I’m in Duluth, and I have to say, I love this time of the year! I also love the quiet summers, but there is nothing as vibrant as the vibe in Duluth when students start arriving for college. It feels weird not being a part of it anymore, but I still feel connected being a graduate student. My advice for move in time is to enjoy it! Take photos, meet new people, and have an open mind. Do not judge, discriminate, or stereotype. Open your mind to endless opportunities and possibilities! This is the best time of the school year. And if you’re like me, you won’t be able to sleep before your first day of class..just as if you’re still in K-12! 

SHT Adventure

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

My freshman thru senior year roommate, Brody O, and I recently went on a Superior Hiking Trail (SHT) adventure beginning in Silver Bay and continuing on to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, about 2 miles north of Highway 1 on the SHT. We wanted to get up to George H. Manitou Crosby State Park, but due to the difficult terrain, 50lb backpacks, and a close to depleted water supply with no refills we decided to halt the trip prematurely. It was an awesome trip, regardless and we learned quite a bit as we traversed the SHT.

All My Friends Are Leaving

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

How dare they graduate from college when I have a year left? The indignation!
All jokes aside, I am so happy for the classmates and friends I will be seeing graduate in a few short weeks. The bonds and memories we formed over the past four years have been incredible.
It’s truly bittersweet to see your best friends take their first steps out into the real world. You stand on the sidelines cheering for their success, but secretly wish they don’t forget you as they take strides towards their goals.
I already gave my two best friends their graduation gifts, which made it feel all the more real. Yikes! I hope we continue to stay in contact and root for each other for many years to come.
Congratulations to all you soon to be graduates! You all rock!

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!

Applebee’s Celebration

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Some of my friends have already graduated. Although they’re in Duluth still, they’ve been busy working and our schedules have severely conflicted. Tonight is one of their birthdays so we are finally meeting up to go to Applebee’s to celebrate! Although I am extremely sleep deprived, I knew it was time to hang out with her. I don’t think we’ve seen each other since February. As college is ending, I’m definitely appreciating the few moments I do get to spend with my close friends. I think it is very key in maintaining relationships to sacrifice time for these friends, before it’s too late. That being said, I’m heading out and I am going to have some delicious artichoke dip! It’s going to be a good night to catch up! I’m so pumped!
