    Caitlin's Bio:
    I’m an Advertising/Public Relations major with a concentration in production and design. I’m also minoring in management and marketing. I’m a social media assistant here at the College and love every second of it. Not only does it involve hands on experience in my major, but sets a great foundation for my future. I love to go out in Duluth and spend a lot time with some of my best friends and family. St. Scholastica has made such a huge impact on my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Great Weekend!

This weekend Brett and I got the chance to do something we don’t get to do, ever. Given our circumstances. His mom and sister came for a few days to visit!! Brett’s Canadian (if you didn’t know), but we’re not talking taking two steps over the border or just driving into North Dakota to Canada. We’re talking by Vancouver and out thaaaat way. Very, very far from here. So basically the family aspect has to be through technology. It works for us, but having this weekend was so nice. It couldn’t have been better. They got here on Thursday during the third period of the hockey game and the second they walked in Brett scored! Then somehow by chance I had turned around at the right second and we saw each other instantly…it was pretty crazy! So we were so excited and waited for Brett after the game (they ended up losing), but we went out to dinner and just talked for hours. Friday night we went to the game and it was so AWESOME. We’re all so proud of Brett. The guys ended up tieing the game in the third period and with 20 seconds left Brett got the winning goal! It was like a movie…not kidding haha. His family doesn’t have the chance to come here often and then he had an awesome game. We did dinner again for the next few nights and just talked some more, but it was so fun. It was so nice to get out and just hang around. They are some pretty great people. Definitely grateful for this opportunity.

So if anyone hasn’t caught on…Brett and I are in what you could say a “partial” long distance relationship as of now. He leaves for Canada again in May. It sucks, we hate it, but he’s my best friend. We’re completely attached and it’s strangely easy at the same time. None of us know where we’ll end up, but we decided to just enjoy it now. It really does all come together and throughout our relationship we have made sure to do things right. Our timing was great. His family coming here was perfect timing too. I never ever expected to have that relationship while I was in college. You always hear about people meeting from completely different places and taking off. Some days I’m beyond frustrated that I’m in this position. If I ever leave I would feel pretty guilty/sad, but I’m starting to realize how awesome it has become to be able to have that worry. That sounds 100% totally bizarre and weird, but if you think about it I’m worried about what could potentially happen with someone who’s so close to me. I’m lucky to even have the chance to try. I can finally have the type of relationship I have with my parents and Becky with someone else  and it’s totally effortless. I’m not one to actually talk about stuff like this, but I’m pretty happy with my life right now. I know some amazing people. I’m really lucky. If anyone else is in the same situation as us lemme know 🙂 I would love to hear it. Nothing better than knowing you’re not alone!

But these days, I’ve been pretty happy to have chosen Scholastica on the day when I was sitting in the UMD parking lot crying haha! The people here are so different and they open you up to so many things. Try it.

And because I just HAVE TO…here’s the video of Brett’s goal 🙂
