Advisement Week

Friday, October 11th, 2019

It has begun! Advisement week for next spring is here. Today I met with my advisor. Since I am graduating in December, there was nothing related to class registration to talk about, so instead, we triple checked I have fulfilled all the requirements for graduation and chatted about my future plans. We also took the opportunity to talk about the past and learn how the other ended up here. It took sitting down with a professor I’ve come to admire a few months before graduating to realize that I have, in fact, grown quite fond of this ruthlessly cold, isolated place!

Moving in

Sunday, September 8th, 2019

Today, I arrived in Duluth! I had entirely forgotten what green Duluth looks like. On the other hand, the weather felt familiarly cold, but it still surprises me how 10C can feel cold after summer and quite warm after winter. It is supposed to rain a lot this week; not atypical for fall in Duluth, but in my experience when it rains here it rains cats and dogs, so I can’t imagine it will rain with that intensity all week.In spite of the weather, though, it is exciting to be back. There’s a plethora of outdoor of activities one can do in the fall here, and I plan to take full advantage of the next couple of weeks!
