Recognizable me: This is me to the left back home in Wisconsin doing what I love. When I am home you can almost always find me out in the woods or on the water hunting and fishing. This picture to the left was taken this fall in Shiocton Wisconsin, which is where I do most of my hunting. I enjoy any type of hunting that gets me out in the woods or marsh, but i dedicate most of my fall pursuing deer with my bow(this picture was from gun season), as well as a considerable amount of time waterfowl hunting.
Where I’m at: I am a sophomore here a the University of Colorado Boulder, however I haven’t been for long. Until last week I have been studying at University of Wisconsin Madison, but decided to make the move out here. I enjoyed Madison, but I have always wanted to come out to Colorado and have been looking for a school that would allow me to get out and be active, which I believe I’ve found. I also have a brother who is a senior at the University of Denver, one cousin who goes to Boulder, and know one other person here at Boulder, so it has been nice having at least a couple connections here making the transition a little smoother.
I am currently unemployed and focusing on school, however I may be in the job market soon. In the past I have done mostly manual labor such as working in warehouses, an oil terminal, and for a plumbing company, but last summer I had a nice change and worked for a resort in northern Wisconsin. I am hopeful I will be back in Wisconsin this summer working to improve my resume and technical skills through an internship.
What I want: Honestly, the main reason I took this class is because it is required, but I am also excited about what I will get out of it. I am looking forward to creating a resume, website, and Linkedin account, as all three of these are valuable assets in the business field. I am also hoping this class will help me to improve my professional business setting writing and research skills. Overall I am hopeful this class will help to prepare me for a career in the business field in terms of my writing, as well as through the creation of a resume, website, and Linkedin account.
Where to find me: I am still getting familiar with the area, but recently you have been able to find me on the mountain. The weekend before school started I spent one day snowboarding and two days attempting to familiarize myself with skis at Keystone Mountain. Also, I spent this past weekend at Crested Butte Mountain with a group called Boulder Freeride, which was so much fun. Now that we are back at school I have been spending most of my time around campus in class, the library, the rec center, etc. I was able to hike the Mount Sanitas Trail last week, and would highly recommend it to those who are interested in a fun hike close to campus. If you make it all the way to the top you will be rewarded with a beautiful view.
As I said earlier, when I am back home I spend most of my time hunting just north of a small town called Shiocton, or near the boarder of Wisconsin and the Michigan Upper Peninsula with my family at our cabin. While at our cabin we spend most of our time simply hanging out, relaxing, and fishing. I can’t wait to be back.
I listen to all different types of music, but if I had to choose I would say Dave Matthews Band is near the top of my list because of the shear volume of good music they’ve produced. This summer I was able to see Dave Matthews Band in Alpine Valley, which is an awesome venue in central Wisconsin. That was my first real concert and I have to say it was an amazing experience.
