Three weeks. That’s how long we have until the semester is over. Three weeks.
So close, yet so far away. Three weeks until we graduate and are no longer UMD Bulldogs. But, once a Bulldog, always a Bulldog….right?
If you’re like me, you are realizing your time at UMD and in Duluth is running out quick! You’re also realizing there are MANY things you haven’t done yet, that have been on your college bucket list since the summer before freshman year.
I have compiled a “Top Five To Finish” bucket list to complete before the senior year comes to a close.
Go mountain biking. I have never been! How is this possible? After 4 years in Duluth, I have never been on the trails. I am hoping the snow clears by the end of may to go at least once. Some of the best trails (or so I’ve heard) are Lester Park and Hawk’s Ridge.
Listen to live music at the Red Herring. All my friends rave about how awesome the live music is in Duluth. My ears need to be blessed with this before I depart!
Jump off the Icehouse. Every fall when we come back to school my goal is to jump off the icehouse before it gets cold. Well, it usually gets cold before this happens for me. We will see if there is a heat wave mid-May and I cross this off the bucket list.
Camp out at Bean and Bear Lake. I hiked this part of the Superior Hiking Trail with my sister freshman year and have always wanted to go back. Now is the time to make this happen. Even if it is 50 degrees outside while I sleep.
Eat at Duluth Grill. Okay, I will admit I have done this a few times before but it’s SO GOOD. How can I not put this as my final bucket list?? I think I will even stop there for lunch the day I move out and leave Duluth.
These are a few of my bucket list items before I leave this beautiful place! What do you want to do before you graduate? Think about it now so you can maximize your memory-making as a Bulldog and Duluthian. I am sad to leave this place but excited for what’s next (and to cross these off my bucket list!).
