    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

“What is that green stuff?”

Last week, while walking to class I ficticiously joked with my family (back in Spain) that Minnesotans are going crazy at the sight of a seemingly radioactive material that has been found laying beneath the (Minnesotan) floor’ (i.e. snow). Naturally, the joke is in that as far as I’m concerned, Minnesota knows only one season: Snow (I haven’t spent any Summers here in Minnesota, although I hear last summer it happened on a Wednesday). However, upon making this joke I realized that something had changed inside of me: as I was telling my family, I noticed that despite the 0 degree Celsius weather, I was wearing a short-sleeve shirt—and upon introspecting deeper, I discerned that part of the reason I was telling that joke was because I felt joyous about the nice weather. Now, there is a difference between 0 degree Celsius weather before and after winter, but I think the fact that you can consider this to be nice weather after the winter, speaks volumes to how adaptable humans are! And all of this because of a patch of grass…
