If You Can Dodge A Wrench...

Saturday, September 13, 2014

According to the movie, "If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball." If that is also conversely true, I sure I hope I never have a wrench thrown at me, because if I've learned one thing this week, it is that dodging balls is not my strong suit. BUT, if I've learned a second thing this week, it's that intramural sports are SO FUN, despite my lack of skill.

Sorority Recruitment

Friday, September 12, 2014

This past week was my last sorority recruitment. After the 4th time doing this, the seniors have gotten to know the system really well. The week starts out with first datebook. On this day, the girls that are going through rush attend a "date party" at all nine of the houses. These parties are only about thirty minutes and show a quick peek of what each house's personality is like. Every house does their own entertainment at the end of each party. Some houses show a slideshow or sing songs, which always ends with a loud chant of each house's name.

A Tough Little Ride to Ward

Monday, September 8, 2014

Hi all!

It has been yet another successful weekend here in Boulder, Colorado. I feel as though I say it every weekend, but truly, at the end of the weekend, I usually feel as if I have been productive and accomplished something worthwhile.

Why You Should Take An Acting Class

Saturday, September 6, 2014

So I'm in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance program, which is just a really fancy way of saying I am an acting major. There are some really hard parts of being in this program, like getting verbally and publicly evaluated by the faculty at the end of the semester, and the required 24 hours of rehearsal a week that is on TOP of the already excessive class load. But don't let my complaints fool you, I love this program. In the BFA, there are 12 of us who move through all of our classes together, becoming close, giving feedback, and if I'm honest, becoming a weird little family.

Who Is This Girl, Anyway?

Saturday, September 6, 2014

 

            Hi. Hello. How are you? I wish that we could do more real introductions, but I think we’ll have to settle for you hearing a little about me. Maybe some day if I’m lucky we’ll be able to go get Jamba Juice and have a real chat.

My First House

Friday, September 5, 2014

For the past three years, I have lived in a dorm style setting. Freshman year, I lived in Libby Hall and Sophomore and Junior year, I lived in my sorority house. Now, as a senior, I finally have my first house. I have been excited about the idea of having my own house on the hill since I was a freshman. I couldn't wait to cook for myself and have my own room that I didn't have to share. I am now finally here and it is a lot harder than I thought.

Summer Pt. 2 - Boulder

Thursday, September 4, 2014

 

Hello all,

 

I am still getting into the swing of school, but my heart is still at least partially in the summertime. So, since I wrote about my summer in California last week, I thought I would take a few moments to write about the part of my summer that I spent in Boulder this year.

Clubs, and Teams, and Organizations, Oh My!

Wednesday, September 3, 2014

Heyo everyone! 

Today I worked at the Involvement Fair held at the UMC.  Every semester, CU holds a fair, yes, the Involvement Fair (!) where all of the school's student groups set up tables so that people know what's out there. It is a great way to figure out what activities you want to invest time in, each semester.  Last year, I tabled for Student Ambassadors, and this year, I went for Alpha Phi Omega.  It really got me thinking about all of the different groups I've tried out, and all of the ones I wish I could join if I had time!
