After some delirous nights, nerve wracking tests, and a multitude of term papers, I can finally say that I'm done with this semester! What a weight off my chest! I actually took a nap yesterday after my tests were over; that's an anomoly in my life. Now as I sit here with a piping hot cup of coffee at 8:15 with no actual classes to attend, I have to wonder... why am I up this early? I think my body has adrenaline coursing through my veins, urging me to keep going.

Little Known Secrets in StudyVille, Boulder

Hate studying in the main Norlin library? Yeah, me too. So, I've compiled a list of relatively unknown places on campus where I've studied at one point or the other.

1. Student Group Office:

If you are an officer of a student group registered on campus and your group has an office in the UMC, you are entitled to a key card that grants you access into the office while the UMC is open. Your SOFO signers should be able to arrange this key card for you. Student group offices are quiet and spacey and have limited access.

The Story of $10,000

Well, not in cash.

This semester, I took GEOG 3053 - Cartography 1 with the Geography department. Initially, I was not very keen on taking this class but seeing that it is a requirement for my Geography degree, I had no choice. Once I saw that the class was worth 4 credits and had weekly labs lasting 3 hours, I became even more expectant of a time-demanding syllabus.

A blessing in disguise...

I have come to completely appreciate the RTD bus system in Boulder and all over the state in the last few weeks. Normally I commute from Longmont (a small suburb town of Boulder) because that is where I currently live, but I have been house-sitting and dog-sitting for some friends in Boulder this past month. My car was giving me troubles and I had to be in Fort Collins the next morning for an interview. Fort Collins, mind you, is almost a 2-hr. commute from Boulder.

Hey guys,

Thanksgiving break was great, just like it always it. The only con is that right after Thanksgiving comes finals. I'm taking 19 credits this semester and that leaves me with 6 finals and papers. A lot. Or maybe not so much. Here are the things I've learned in my three years of university which have heloed me with finals:
