    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.

Making Do

Sometimes life throws you unwanted/undesirable situations…some worse than other and some on greater scales than others. On our last day in Florida we had two games starting at 10am and we knew we were leaving right after the games. In past years, the complex that we stay at has allowed us to shower. With a 30-hour bus trip ahead of us, you would think it’s a no brainer they would allow us to use their facility to shower. Well this year they decided not to, leaving us with a very smelly problem.

After the game Coach Kemp informed us that we weren’t going to be able to use the showering facility at the Sports Village but instead would be showering at the local Truck Stop… I wish I could have taken a picture of the facial reactions, including my own, after this was said…pretty comical.

To make a long story fairly short, we ended up getting to the truck stop eating subway and one of the ladies from the Florida Coast Spring Training brought over fresh towels for us to use and organized the whole deal. I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a truck stop shower before but it was my first time and to my surprise they were actually really nice. They had 6 showers all in separate bathrooms. There was even a nice waiting room with a huge flat screen TV, I must add, where most of us sat in and watched as we waited for the guys in the shower to get out. All in all everything was good, we got showered up and the 30-hour trip wasn’t all that smelly after all.

I want to relate this to life situations we often times may come across. We all know that in our daily lives plans get scratched, meetings get cancelled, dates are moved up ahead of schedule, etc. Life is full of situations where we have an undesirable situation on our hands and rather than getting all flustered and uptight about it, I think we all can do a better job at taking a step back looking at the situation in another perspective and finding out a good way to go about it. Make do with what you have and don’t get overwhelmed or too stressed out. I would say 99.9% of the time we get through these little tedious situations, so just make do and be thankful for the things that are going your way because theirs many folks out there whose day is going a lot worse than yours.
