Tomorrow is the last day of October and will also mark one of the chilliest days we've had in months - high of 38. Brrr. I have to say, though, I'm one of those crazy Duluthians who welcome fall and sweater weather and falling temps with open arms, only to wonder what the heck I was thinking once we experience our first 40-below windchill. I've also turned into a pretty big Halloween fan lately - having a kiddo will do that to you, I guess - an an even bigger fan of Daylight Savings - having a kiddo will most definitely do that to you - so lots to look forward to this weekend, including our November Open House (come see us!

Even though I'm a first year student, I came in with enough credits to make me have a sophomore standing. So, I was registering at midnight Wednesday morning. The registration process was fine for me. The only problem is, I have NO idea what I want to do with my life. I'm only 18 years old and it's really hard to find out what interests me and what I can have a career in. I've talked to numerous advisors, family members, and students, and they all say the same thing, "you'll figure it out!" They are all older, so I guess they must be wiser (that's how the saying goes at least), but I just don't like the feeling of the unknown. I guess I'm just going to go with the flow and find out what my likes and dislikes are. If you're an incoming student next fall, a freshman, or even a sophomore... Don't stress if you don't know EXACTLY what you want to do with your life- a lot of people are in the same boat!
For the last month or so for clinical I've been going to Essentia for the major clinical rotation. It was an incredible opportunity. I made connections and got insight as to what working in a big hospital would be like. Although I'm sad I'm done with this rotation, I'm excited for the minor rotations that are coming my way.
Yesterday we met with our RA (residential advisor) and we decorated our wing in a halloween themed way. Even though I do not consider myself as a handcraft expert person, there's always ways to collaborate in these kinds of things. After all, is our duty to keep the public spaces clean and nice for everyone to see. I loved how it ended up looking! Also, it was a great way to reflect team work among our fellow neighbors ❤️ Read the rest of this entry »
Tonight was full of activities!! In the Kerst apartments, our RA's put on a pumpkin painting and halloween movie night in the lounge. People got super creative with their creations. They also had food; so it was pretty much set up for people to have a fun time.
