Our time is coming to an end...

Friday, May 18, 2012

Sorry for the lack of post last week! It was a very sad and somewhat stressful couple of days. The lower two programs left on Saturday, and on Friday we had our catamaran adventure! It was amazing. Wonderful day (really hot too, up to 90 degrees!) and really good food. They even stopped the catamaran in the middle of the Bay of Alicante and let us jump off the swim! It was pretty cool looking at the entire city of Alicante from the water. Picture time!

Last Weekend with the Program

Friday, May 4, 2012

Well, the time has arrived. My program and the group below me will be leaving next weekend:( It's weird though. We all know it's going to happen, but, due to finals next week, we haven't exactly started thinking about it. Which is good I guess. Better to be sad after finals. It's going to be really strange having half of the Americans gone. At least some of my friends from the higher program will still be here!

Little Known Secrets in StudyVille, Boulder II

Thursday, May 3, 2012

I did a post of favorite study hideouts last semester and this semester, I have a bunch more:

The library is probably not your best bet to get work done quietly and alone (I have barely ever studied in the library).

1. JILA Tower.

2. Department Labs (For me, I have access to the KESDAL lab at the GEOG building. You should have access to special rooms and labs in your department building after hours).

3. UMC 5th Floor.

4. Off-campus local Coffee Shops.

5. BOLD Center, Engineering.

What a busy week!! Last Wednesday, my dad came to visit me for the evening! We went to dinner at Sherpa, an absolutely delicious Tibetan restaurant on Walnut St. in Boulder.
