We've all heard the horror stories. Living in a dorm is a scary thought. Walking up to Libby Hall on move-in day scared the living daylights out of me. I couldn't believe that I was going to have to live with someone I had never met, in a space smaller than my room at home. This was a truly terrifying thought.

It's been a long and restful break for me, but school has started, and I'm back in the game. I got to spend all of the break back home in Texas, which was very nice, but I did miss the awesome snowfall we had in Boulder. While I had a ton of downtime at home, I did get out and do some cool things.
Biochemistry, Atmospheric/Oceanic Studies (ATOC) minor • Austin, Texas
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...
