    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Humans of CSS

As I wind up my reflection series (and my time at CSS!), I wanted to save the best aspect of CSS for last – its people! I have met many Saints, as all members of the College of St. Scholastica are affectionately called, from all walks of life during my tenure in Duluth. If I was to gather all of them in one room, here’s what I’d say, to quote Bilbo Baggins from one of Tolkien’s masterpiece, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy:

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

4 years goes by really fast. However, the days were made meaningful by the companionship of friends, colleagues, and fellow Saints, from all walks of life. I met people from six of the seven continents! To me, my experiences with different people has been very impactful in shaping me to be the person I am today. I always encourage my friends to seek out other people, have conversations (if they’re nice people lol), and develop relationships. After all, friends were strangers at some point!

A couple years ago, former CSS student, Emma Myles, started a bio project based on the Humans of New York photoblog. Here are some samples from the project:

P.S. I made a website that features recent HONY tumblr posts. You can read this with no ads! See http://student.css.edu/codeduluth/malvern/tumblrHONY.html
