    Brandon's Bio:
    My major is on the left, but it’s taken me six major changes, two minor changes and three graduate-track changes to get there. I’m from a small farming town west of the Twin Cities and came to Duluth for the city and stayed for the school. I work at the Burns Wellness Center at the front desk and have pretty much the best job in the world. I like to take any opportunity thrown at me, and since coming here I’ve been thrown plenty. Life’s an adventure, and so is CSS!

It’s been a long and arduous journey, but after a brief 12 hour flight with only 2 mere 2 hour layovers, and a nearby passenger having a little seizure over the Atlantic ocean I finally made it back to the United States! Returning has been wild. Seeing wide roads, Caribou Coffee, yellow buses, stop signs, and super fat people again has been crazy. When I went to get groceries, I’d practically forgotten what foods I really ate when I was in the USA. When I flew over and saw ‘Minnesota’ in maroon and gold on a stadium coupled with the finite grid-system the States has been adorned with, it only perfectly framed the city of Minneapolis as our little plane circled the skyline. It was as if it rose up to wave me in home. My jaw dropped seeing cars driving on ice again accompanied by little huts. The gentlemen next to me conversing about “Oh ya know, goin’ down ta see the hockey game this Saturday.” and how “Oh ya, Shattuck is doin’ real good this year!” or “Oh, I just live down by Bloomington, right off 35.” made me smile wider than I had in a long time. I forgot how much I missed that thick Minnesotan drawl and the warm, friendly nature of these people.

I’m home.
