Car Shops

Monday, May 7th, 2018

I need to share with you wonderful people the even more wonderful people that have fixed all my cars’ problems over the years. My family has a family friend that owns a car shop called Accurate Auto Repair in Hermantown, and they are seriously life savers. I’ve had flat tires, weird engine problems, broken brakes, honestly you name it. I have always called the day of my problem and they always get me in and out in the same day. I had to bring my car in this morning, for yet another problem, and I’m hoping that it’s inexpensive because I can’t afford to keep fixing things on my cheap car! I would highly recommend Accurate Auto to anyone that has car troubles because honestly they are so great to their customers. They also helped my sister a number of times when she was in college as well! Hopefully no one ever has to see them (because that means there are car problems), but if you do, go there!!

Last Lab Day

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

Today was the last day of labs for my undergrad studies, and I’m a little sad about it.  At first, as a freshmen I didn’t really like labs because they were a lot of work.  We always had pre-labs and a notebook to upkeep.  It doesn’t seem like a lot of work, but when you have two labs and four or five other classes with equal demands for homework, it gets to be a lot.  I honestly don’t even know how I survived my undergrad studies without dying because this semester has been such a breeze.  I used to take 18 credits every semester, plus volleyball and work, so I never really had any free time.  These days have been pretty chill, and I’m really thankful that I’m ending this way. It’s a bittersweet feeling to be done with 3 of my classes already for the year, and tomorrow is the last official day of classes!!! My friends keep asking me how I feel about it, and I’m not really sure how I feel anymore.  Everything is happening so fast, and before I know it I’ll be graduated and in the working world.  I hope everyone else is getting excited for summer though!!!

Last CHOICES Event

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Last weekend was the last CHOICES Event of the year.  I would say that it was a successful year for CHOICES as we hosted so many events and lots of students participated in them.  I think that our plan next year is to have less events but the events will be bigger and more fun.  It will also be nice because it will be less work to have to plan so many events all the time.  CHOICES is all about alcohol and drug-free events, promoting healthy choices for CSS Athletics and the rest of the school population.  This year was our second year, and I think we were more successful in getting our name out there, and people are starting to understand it all a little better.  Next year, there are 3 new representatives of CHOICES, and I’m looking forward to see where they take it!!

Mayfest

Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

This week is Mayfest, and I think that I had discussed this in a previous post.  Basically it’s a week celebration at our school with many different events occurring every evening.  Throughout the whole week there is a medallion hunt and the finder wins $100!!! I really want to search for it but it’s hard when I don’t live on campus.  It hasn’t been found yet, but there are clues that are given every day!!  Thursday I made a team for a volleyball tournament for a chance to win some big money – $120!!! I am looking forward to that, and also Johnny Holmes is this Friday and graduating seniors get in for free!! I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and go to some of the free things this week!!!
