    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!

I am EXHAUSTED. After crossing 4 great lakes, the atlantic ocean, half of Canada, Scotland, the North Sea and eventually making it here without being able to sleep on the plane has taken its toll. As I sit here at Danhostel Copenhagen Downtown’s lobby listening to unfamiliar music I don’t understand, I have a little time to reflect. Flying into Denmark, the first thing I noticed was a jigsaw! Unlike the organized cubic farm fields of the United States. And, just as predicted, not knowing the native language poses an obstacle. Maps, directions, everything is written in Danish… which is complete jibberish to me. Fortunately the people here are very willing to help a poor lost American Boy! Some stranger in a bus was kind enough to taxi two Swiss girls and myself to Danhostel for a very, very low fare! In retrospect that probably sounds like the setup for a horror movie… meh, I’m alive today aren’t I?

Anywho, this city is remarkable. Every street feels like I’m walking through the set of a movie, and the people here are just as my boss explained them to me: ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. Also, feast your eyes on my first food purchase over here, at the cool price of 17 DKK!
