Crazy Colorado Weather

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

 

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to announce that spring has finally sprung in Boulder!! Tulips are starting to appear on campus, and I can actually walk to class without having to wear gloves! In fact, all last week the weather was in the 70s!

Quick Trips

Monday, April 14, 2014

One of the best things about college is the variable scheduling. For me, that means I do not have class on Wednesdays, which means Tuesday nights are open for exploring all that Colorado has to offer. One of my friends from Texas had never been to a Rockies game (Colorado's Major League Baseball team), so last Tuesday night, we made our way down to Coors Field to give him the full experience! Coors Field has a section called The Rockpile with $4 tickets. Your meal will cost you three times as much as your ticket!

2048 - A Stupid Life Ruining Game

Monday, April 14, 2014

 

Alright, so my title here might be a little bit over dramatic.

 

There is a new game that is growing pretty rapidly in popularity on the App Store. It's called 2048, and there was a time when I was hopelessly addicted to it.

 

Basically, the game works where you get tiles of 2's and you can combine like numbers to build in powers of two's (two 2's combine to make a 4, two 4's combine to 8, etc.)

#springbreak2014

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

 

Hello everyone!

After our first round of midterms of the semester, Spring Break could not have come at a better time! Although the most popular college Spring Break destinations include Cabo, Las Vegas, and Miami, I chose to go on a backcountry skiing trip in the mountains outside of Aspen!

Thankfully, the trip was organized by a group of friends who had gone in the past (because I sure had no idea what to do!). They sent out a gear list, explained the terrain, and even prepared all of the food ahead of time and divided it up into our packs.

Glacier Homemade Ice Cream

Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Hi everyone,

I remember once when I was little, when my family was travelling around the east coast, we toured the Ben and Jerry’s factory in Vermont.  I was maybe 5 or 6 years old, but I still have very distinct memories of being there, walking around, seeing the machines that put ice cream into the cartons, and, of course, the free samples at the end.

Roped In on the First Flatiron

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

 

As Spring Break wound down, and the reality of the sprint finish towards finals set in. I was sitting in my backyard with Flip wondering how we could squeeze out the final drops of our glorious week off.

Rock Climbing the 1st Flatiron

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Hi all!

As many of you know, Boulder is a very active and outdoorsy city. No matter what the weather, people are always running, biking, hiking or doing some sort of outdoor activity. Boulder is also home to some of the best rock climbing, bouldering and climbing gyms. The other day, I decided to take advantage of the great climbing opportunities by rock climbing one of the Flatirons.

Baseball, Baseball, Baseball (All Weekend)

Monday, April 7, 2014

Hi all!

It’s finally beginning to feel like spring in Boulder again. And that means that summer is right around the corner! The last few weeks of spring semester are always particularly busy and interesting for me. Between school, intramurals, club baseball, and other outdoor activities, there is always something interesting going on.

Skiing at Loveland

Sunday, April 6, 2014

Hi everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well, and enjoying some Spring-time warmth! Having lived in Colorado almost my whole life, I am fully aware that Spring means Snow! Which is great, because we need the moisture.  It also makes for great skiing.

School Spirit

Saturday, April 5, 2014

This weekend was spent showing my pride for CU Boulder by attending the Final Performance Showcase for the CU Express Dance team and also being part of Admitted Students Day with Student Ambassadors. The showcase consisted of a variety of dances coreographed by both coaches and dancers themselves to culminate their season. The show was awesome! I have a few friends on the team from high school and my classes here at CU, so it was awesome to see them in their element outside of an academic context. I posted a picture of the team and Chip below.
