Spring Scrimmage Day

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

Yesterday was a long, soccer filled day. The St. Scholastica Women’s soccer team, which I am a member of, had three games. The first game at 10 am was over at Griggs Field at UMD. Unfortunately we started off rough and let in goals early. As the game progressed, however, we gained confidence and finished strong. The second game was at 12:20 pm at Saints Field. We played Lake Superior Community College, and we played very well. At that point, most of us were becoming fatigued, but we pushed through and got the win. The third and final game was against our alumni at Saints Field. That game is always difficult because the alumni go so hard, and we were all so tired from playing two games prior. The best part of the day was after our final game though because pizza and Gatorade was waiting for us on the sideline. Overall the day was perfect weather and filled with fun. Also, I got my first sunburn of the year… So thankful for aloe vera!!

It’s Crunch Time

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Wow this freshman year has gone by so fast. You arrive on campus in September, or for soccer in August like me, all nervous and stressed, and next thing you know it’s mid-April and you wonder where time has gone. Unfortunately for most of us students, April not only means spring, but it means finals are almost upon us. My main goal during this stressful time is to focus on getting my work done, while also taking care of myself. This includes sleeping at least 7 hours a night, taking naps, watching Netflix, and playing soccer. I try to also study at some point each day for classes so I do not have to cramp the days before finals, because I did that last semester, and I do not recommend that for anything! Just focusing on the good times to be had this summer at the lake and with friends is enough motivation for me to keep on working everyday to finish the year strong.

It’s On Us Rally

Today on campus I participated in the It’s On Us Rally. This rally was focused on supporting those people who are sexual assault survivors in our community. This can also be attributed to the #MeToo movement.


Get Swabbed!!!

Today on campus the Student Nursing Association set up a booth in the Student Union. Their goal is to get people on the registry for Bone Marrow Matches through a company called DKMS. Their goal is to eliminate blood cancer, or leukemia, worldwide.


Cheap Movie Tickets!

Monday, April 9th, 2018

If there is one thing that college students love to do, it’s going to movies with our friends. There is a great movie theatre in downtown Duluth called Marcus Theatres and they offer some awesome deals for college students that I wanted to mention. One of those deals is “Movie Tuesdays” where any movie is only $5 to see. They also have “Student Thursdays” where admission is only $6. The theatre is very nice and in a great location also. My friends and I are planning on taking advantage of one of these deals this week as we are planning to go see the hottest new horror movie “A Quiet Place”. One of my favorite parts about going to college here in Duluth is that there is so much happening in the city and so much to do that I am never bored. Whether it’s going to a movie, to Spirit Mountain to ski or snowboard, Chester Park, the mall, or whatever else it might be, there is no shortage of things to do for fun both in Duluth and also right on campus, as well.
