Study Abroad!

Thursday, February 28, 2013

 

My study abroad experience in Salamanca, Spain during the fall of 2013 and South America during the spring of 2014 is one that I am undertaking in order to grow personally, culturally, and academically.  I have spent countless hours planning for this semester, and I believe that it will be extremely enriching across all areas of my being.  The things I will learn, places I will see, and most importantly people that I will meet will add a much-needed fresh perspective to the way I see the world and approach my daily life.

...Whay Day is it Today?

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Have you ever had just one of those weeks in which so much has happened, that you feel like a lot more time has passed than just a week? Well, this week was one of those. Not only are midterms in full swing, I also managed to get a tutoring job for the CU Athletics Department, which is really exciting! I am so excited to start working with the student-athletes, and to see a different side of CU Athletics that not many people get to see! However, this job means decided between moving home or staying out here after graduation, which, as many of you know, is an extremely difficult decision.

Busy Times!

Monday, February 25, 2013

 

Hey everyone!

Sorry I’ve been so terrible at posting! I know you all are anxious to see what I’ve been up to in Boulder! Unfortunately, there’s so much to do that I forget about blogging sometimes! Luckily for me, when I’m forgetting to blog, I’m doing fun things to blog about later. For example, the past two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity.

Snow Storm!

Monday, February 25, 2013

This weekend, a snow storm hit Boulder. While for many people this means it's time to curl up on the couch, start a fire, and watch The Notebook, for my and friends and me, it means it's time to play outside. When we saw how much it was going to snow, we got so excited and couldn't wait for the weekend ahead of us. Being from California, I get way too excited when it starts to snow and although it's February and it has snowed plenty of times this year, I still run around the house screaming for everyone to go outside.

CO Love

Friday, February 22, 2013

 

Among the perks of attending CU includes the ability to pack up at any point and head to the mountains in search of adventure.  This morning, my roommate Philip and I, following an unannounced snowstorm Wednesday and Thursday, skiied up at Loveland and made it back to campus in time for afternoon classes.  The stereotypical "Boulder" experience certainly never disappoints.

Ralphie

Friday, February 22, 2013

We are very proud of our mascot here at CU. Ralphie is our 1,000 pound female Buffalo. We can't have a male Buff because the males are literally too big and mean, thus posing a potential safety hazard. That said, Ralphie is still a great tradition for us.

Harlem Shake to End All Harlem Shakes

Friday, February 22, 2013

In my Acting for Nonmajors class this week, we were asked to prepare our monologues for coaching. This means we brought in the monologue we had been working on for a five minute one-on-one segment with our teacher. She helped me deicde more of the physical aspects of my monologue - where I should stand, look, move my arms, etc. I really enjoy the exercises we get to do in the class to express ourselves and find more of the actions that we are the best at! Someday I really might want to pursue a bit of acting outside of my usual Young Life skits on Wednesday nights.

Greek Week Is Upon Us!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

It's the most wonderful time of the spring semester! Well, for me anyways! Tonight our Greek Week partners were announced, as well as our theme! The overall theme is Class Reunion, with the specific themes being superlatives (like Most likely to...) We are so happy to be paired with the beautiful ladies of Sigma Rho Lamda, as well as the wonderful gentlemen of Pi Kappa Phi and Alpha Gamma Omega. Though Greek Week is still about a month and a half away, preparations have already started!

These past couple of weeks have really made me think about what drives us forward. Each of us is motivated for different reasons. I know that I am often motivated by failure and by pushing myself beyond a personal challenge. Others may be motivated by reward, peer-pressure, or acceptance, but no matter what it is, we are all driven by something.

This past week my favorite program the Office of Admissions offers for prospective students started up again--- Student for a Day. But I will talk a little bit more about that later…
