    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Almost Finished With My Summer Job

Working full time, long hours, five days a week, in the hot sun is finally coming to an end. I believe it was May 28 when I began working for Bauer and Gudeman Inc., landscaping the State Farm buildings in Bloomington, IL. It has now been almost two and half months and I am so ready for it to be over. Being covered in mulch day after day and getting up as early as 4:50am has taken it’s toll on me. Even though the drives to work are beautiful as the sun rises, it isn’t a very good thought knowing I have a full day of work in front of me. The money has been great, I’m able to buy my books for school and have some extra spending money of my own but I’m ready to start sleeping in and getting ready for school. My last day of work will be next Wednesday!

I would have to say this job has given me a few good life lessons as well as some good personal qualities. I think this job has built my character in ways I wouldn’t have otherwise built without this job. I have to be organized the night before – packing lunch, getting my workout clothes and baseball gear packed up, etc. I have to prioritize each day to get the most important things done – earlier this year it was family, work, summer class, workouts and baseball, blog, fun…and now it’s family, work, blog, workouts and baseball. Also, I now have much more of an appreciation for people who do work full time and get up before the sun rises to get to work, it’s gruelling and hard to get up each day with enough desire to make it through the day. I learned about accountability this summer as well. This is a huge deal in the work force as bosses and co-workers count on you to get things done and be there day in and day out.

I’m very thankful I got the opportunity to earn money this summer while also being able to enjoy my time at home. It’s been tough but I’m almost there…and yes it makes it easier to get through each day knowing there is a pay check headed my way! The end of work means the summer is ending and I’m headed back to my second home up in Duluth…I can’t wait!
