Warmth!!!

by / April 19th, 2018 / No Comments »
I really can't keep up with Duluth and it's recent weather events, but I do know that I have been liking these past couple of days!!! There was the big snow storm on Saturday-Sunday, and then really nice weather ever since then.  Almost all the snow is gone already, and seriously today is close to 50 degrees! I'm really enjoying the recent weather and would prefer no more snow until next winter.  Today finally feels like a spring day, and it makes me feel as if summer is coming soon enough.  The only bad part about having nice weather is that I want to be outside, when I should be working on all the homework that I have these LAST FEW WEEKS of school.  So crazy.  I'm not ready to be done, yet so ready at the same time.  This year has flown by, so hopefully these last few weeks have beautiful weather and just go smoothly in general.  Happy Spring people!!! Finally!!!!

500th Post

Wow! This post is my 500th blog post since beginning this job. I began blogging in April 2015 with goals to reach out to as many prospective students as possible. Today, I continue to try and give an accurate representation of life as a undergrad and grad student at the College of St. Scholastica. It has been a wonderful experience and I am very thankful for the opportunity to share my perspective and adventures with so many individuals! Read the rest of this entry »

Spring?!

After a weekend snow storm that accumulated 13.4 inches of snow in the Duluth area, the weather outlook is starting to show signs of spring. The weather channel is saying 50's and 60's for high temperatures the next 15 days! Woo get out your sunblock Duluth! In case you are looking for a reason to get outside and enjoy the warm up, the St. Scholastica baseball team has their home opener at Wade Stadium tomorrow. Check out the baseball schedule for more details! Read the rest of this entry »

It’s Crunch Time

by / April 18th, 2018 / No Comments »
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.

KQDS Radio Volleyball Game

by / April 18th, 2018 / No Comments »
I'm sharing this post because my Volleyball Coach insists on having people know about it.  Each year, employees of the KQDS Radio Crew come to CSS and play us in volleyball.  This always happens during our Spring Season, and it will be happening tomorrow!! I'm honestly not really sure where this event ever came up, but it's very relaxed and fun.  I think they broadcast some of the event as a joke and to help promote CSS Volleyball, and honestly it's just a really good time.  The CSS Volleyball team is asking that anyone that wants to come and watch or hang out with us brings a non-perishable food item with them to help donate to the Food Shelf.  They are in luck because I have a bunch of canned food that I think I'll give away, mostly because I don't really eat it like I used to.  It will all be for a good cause, so if you are like me and have some food to get rid of, bring it on over (might as well watch some vball while you're at it, too)!!
