Weekend Plans

Friday, April 20th, 2018

I’m pretty sure the only way I usually make it through the week is to plan for my weekends, AKA I live for weekends in college.  For example, this weekend is Alumni Volleyball weekend, so there will be tons of families and old CSS Alumni that will come and play against the CSS Volleyball team.  My sister and her roommate were both CSS Volleyball Alum and will be staying at my house this weekend.  I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them as well as some of the old alumni that I haven’t seen in what seems like ages.  Other than that, I know that Sunday is Earth day and predicted to be around 60 degrees outside, so you betcha bottom dollar I will be spending at least a little bit of my day outside.  Even though it doesn’t seem all that exciting, weekends are usually stress-free and super duper fun because of that.  I hope everyone enjoys the beautiful weather we are expected to have this weekend!!!

Warmth!!!

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

I really can’t keep up with Duluth and it’s recent weather events, but I do know that I have been liking these past couple of days!!! There was the big snow storm on Saturday-Sunday, and then really nice weather ever since then.  Almost all the snow is gone already, and seriously today is close to 50 degrees! I’m really enjoying the recent weather and would prefer no more snow until next winter.  Today finally feels like a spring day, and it makes me feel as if summer is coming soon enough.  The only bad part about having nice weather is that I want to be outside, when I should be working on all the homework that I have these LAST FEW WEEKS of school.  So crazy.  I’m not ready to be done, yet so ready at the same time.  This year has flown by, so hopefully these last few weeks have beautiful weather and just go smoothly in general.  Happy Spring people!!! Finally!!!!

KQDS Radio Volleyball Game

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

I’m sharing this post because my Volleyball Coach insists on having people know about it.  Each year, employees of the KQDS Radio Crew come to CSS and play us in volleyball.  This always happens during our Spring Season, and it will be happening tomorrow!! I’m honestly not really sure where this event ever came up, but it’s very relaxed and fun.  I think they broadcast some of the event as a joke and to help promote CSS Volleyball, and honestly it’s just a really good time.  The CSS Volleyball team is asking that anyone that wants to come and watch or hang out with us brings a non-perishable food item with them to help donate to the Food Shelf.  They are in luck because I have a bunch of canned food that I think I’ll give away, mostly because I don’t really eat it like I used to.  It will all be for a good cause, so if you are like me and have some food to get rid of, bring it on over (might as well watch some vball while you’re at it, too)!!

DQ Blizzards!

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

It is no secret to our family and friends that my girlfriend and I are big time DQ blizzard fans. Any chance we get to “celebrate” something, we find ourselves in the drive-thru of Dairy Queen. Tonight was no different as we celebrated a successful job interview. It is our way of giving each other a pat on the back, except with food. It’s great to take a moment for yourself now and again to appreciate all the hard work you have put in to school, a job, a project, etc. I’m all for eating healthy and exercising, but sometimes life just calls for something a little more sweet! Plus having a coupon makes it even better!

It’s On Us Rally

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Today on campus I participated in the It’s On Us Rally. This rally was focused on supporting those people who are sexual assault survivors in our community. This can also be attributed to the #MeToo movement.
