    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!

The couple that will NEVER be.

Tomorrow, my bestie Gina is leaving me. Potentially, if nothing works out, I may not see her for the next SIX months… which, even  the idea of almost makes me shed a tear if I did that sort of thing. She’s been my running mate, superior, friend, mentor and supporter. From the outside, one would never understand our turbulent-appearing relationship and interactions. We’re the closest thing to a heterosexual relationship either of us will probably ever have again. We really are the couple that will NEVER be. So what did we do on the last day we would spend in Duluth together for potentially the next half of a year? Well, we went to the beach! And then helped her drunk friend sober up… And when I left to go see a movie with friends, I broke away from watching slo-mo youtube videos with her and just kind of left. No long embrace, no real good goodbye, no sappy last glance, nothing. The true epitome of our friendship. But you know what? I probably wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Here’s to you, G.
