    Bailey's Bio:
    I am an Advertising and Public Relations major, minoring in Management and English. I grew up in Duluth and love the city, so I figured why not go to a college here? Lucky for me Duluth has The College of St. Scholastica. I enjoy the small campus size and the many great friends I have made throughout my three years here. The highlight of my time at CSS has been participating in the Ireland study abroad program. Im looking forward to my senior year and all the opportunities it may present.

The Best Study Spots

This morning I decided to be productive. Since my internship ended I have been putting off doing my final report for it, mostly because I am a huge procrastinator and it is summer and I haven’t wanted to sit down and write a 4-5 page paper. This morning I wandered over to Caribou Coffee knowing that I would get a lot more done working there than at home. During the school year I often find myself at either Caribou or Starbucks getting homework done. I find it a lot less distracting than being at home, and if I go to one of these places with a mission to get something done, it will actually get done in a timely manner. I just plug in my headphones to block out all background noise, make sure I am logged out of Facebook and the productivity begins. Now, this could be an excuse just to buy coffee, but I think of the coffee as more of an incentive.
There is a drawback to going to a local coffee shop to get work done. There may be people there that you know. This morning I walked in at about 10:00 and found my good friend Maddy sitting at one of the tables, trying to study for a test. I didn’t start working on anything until about 10:30 and Maddy’s studying ended at about ten. This is also why I usually don’t invite friends to come along with me. More times than not though, I will run into someone I know, which can be a nice break from doing homework.
Still, I have not started writing my final report. I decided to write this blog post instead (more procrastinating). My first cup of coffee is gone and it is getting close to lunch, so I am going to get started on my report before I have to leave to get food and then find myself walking into a Starbucks to finish. Yes, I have spent whole mornings at Caribou and then the afternoon at Starbucks. Welcome to College!
