    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!

ESSAYS

Mid-terms are this week, and with them an influx of essays. In both of my Psychology courses, they’ve assigned such essays. In my Abnormal Psychology course, I’m required to write an essay on a disorder, I chose Alcohol-Induced Mood Disorder. It has actually been a somewhat rewarding experience learning how to diagnose and treat patients and I feel like I’m actually taking something away from the class. My other paper however, is not quite as rewarding as the first. I’m required to write an essay linking an ancient Greek philosopher to modern Psychology. It’s like pulling teeth. I made the grand mistake of choosing Zeno of Citium. Unfortunately he was not as interesting as his name might suggest. Actually, it’s the complete opposite. Zeno was known to be the father of a philosophy called ‘Stoicism,’ which is essentially the art of being boring and mulling out emotion. Yeah. Naturally, this paper is turning out to be equally as interesting as Zeno’s philosophy: boring.

Cheers!
