Summer Living

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Everyone is just having the times of their lives now that it is finally summer.  I see on social media and things like that that people are out on lakes, going on vacations, and just spending a lot of time outdoors or with their friends.  Some of my friends are still located in Duluth for the summer because they have jobs there or are already paying rent at a home or apartment.  I am one of those people who is paying rent currently, but I have a job at home that I really needed to work at for the summer, so that is nice.  I like having the freedom to be able to go to Duluth at any point in the summer and have somewhere to stay and people to hang out with.  One of my roommates is living in Duluth this summer and is loving everything about it because there is so much more for her to do there than at her home town.  I wish that I lived in Duluth sometimes, but I am really enjoying the time off from people and spending time with my family and eating all of their food.  I hope everyone is enjoying their summer break so far, it’s already going by so fast!!

Girl’s Night in Duluth

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

Most of my friends are in Duluth this summer and now that I am finally in Duluth, it means we get to hangout! I spent the night at her place before I moved in, which obviously equalled sleepover! My friend and I are both very on-the-go all the time, so we spent the time lounging around. We watched Tangled, painted our nails, and after she left so she could have a quick conversation with her boyfriend, I was OUT. So hard asleep. It wasn’t really an exciting night, but it was great to get together and spend some quality time with friends. It makes me feel better that now I can still see all my friends this summer, even after I’ve graduated.

The 2017 Duluth Air Show is this weekend, June 3rd-4th. If you are in Duluth all you need to do is look up to see some of the aircrafts doing stunts. I saw them yesterday from the lake walk in Canal Park and also from my apartment window up on top of the hill. Check out the website below to get all the information you need to enjoy the Air Show this weekend.

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.
