On Jan. 13, 2018 at 6:30 a.m., my alarm went off. Waking up this early on a weekend is very rare, considering I love “beauty rest;” however, I had to make it to my basketball game.

The report said that significant action must be taken in the next few years to lessen climate change contributors. If not, by 2030 there will be catastrophic effects to the planet.

Over fall break I participated in the Rural Immersion hosted by UP’s Moreau Center.

Throughout my life I’ve had a lot of fears. When I was little, I was terrified of dogs (sad, I know). So when my dad announced that we were getting a puppy, I was NOT happy.
When he first brought Gracie (a Yorkshire Terrier and Shih Tzu mix) home in her little dog crate, I remember standing so far back that I could barely see her through the cage door.
