    Tianna's Bio:
    I'm a nursing intended major, biology/psychology minor and a part of the Honors program. In addition to school, I also work at McCarthy Manor as a CNA. In my "freetime" I like to explore Duluth, hang out with the girls, color, go to concerts, fish, hunt, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend time with my family and my boyfriend. I love Scholastica and Duluth and can't wait to spend the next couple of years here.

Summer oh Summer Where Art Thou?

Well, summer is coming to an end and I’m beginning to wonder, where did it go? When you start with rain and cold in June, the end of July reveals itself as the peak of summer.  So I ask myself, what did I do this summer? The answer is seemingly simple, I worked and worked and worked. I went from Spring session to Summer session classes and work. When the weather was crudy, working in a greenhouse wasn’t so bad, but when the heat and humidity kicked in…oh my! It was the days of pure humidity and 100 degrees that made me long to jump in the lake. And then what did I do? Just to prove to myself I’m crazy, I got another job as a CNA.

However, now that I think about it, I did get a couple chances to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. I went fishing in my hometown, Grand Rapids, for the first time in at least five years. So, I started out a little rusty but finished strong. It may have taken me 10 minutes to tie the first hook on my line but I managed to outfish the guys. And that’s all that matters right?! 🙂

My beach time was limited but I made it out there and enjoyed every second of it. My two favorite spots to swim in Duluth: Park Pointe and Lester Park. Follow the bridge in Canal Park over to Park Pointe and you’ll find a beautiful and extensive sandy beach. The water is refreshing and you can wade in the water for a long time before the water even hits your waist. The beach has multiple accesses thus allowing for crowded and secluded areas. And my other favorite spot is the Lester River that flows through Lester Park. All through the park you’ll find small swimming pools and waterfalls. Make sure to wear good shoes as it is a rock “beach”. If you don’t like a crowded swimming area, I recommend going to Lester Park.

I’m a big music fanatic so what better place to spend the summer than Duluth? Alot of restaurants and caffes have fresh music on a weekly basis, there are music festivals and the Amsoil Arena. I made it to a music fest and a concert this summer in Duluth, both at Clyde Iron Works. For both events, the tickets were under $30 each. Score!

Looking back I guess I did get to have a little fun. You know what they say you have to work hard to play hard.

A Beautiful Day at Park Pointe
