A Wonderful Way to End the Week...

Friday, November 29, 2013

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone is having a fun and safe break so far!  I’ve been enjoying mine a lot so far and it felt like I started Thanksgiving break early this year!

"Home is whenever I'm with you."

Monday, November 25, 2013

As the plan is getting ready to land in Barcelona, "Home" by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros comes on over the loud speakers, and it couldn't be more fitting. I've only been in Barcelona around three months, but this feels like home, and the thought of leaving soon is making me feel a little home sick.

The Internship

Sunday, November 24, 2013

This semester, I decided to get an internship! When I made my schedule last year, I noticed that I only had one class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I thought that I could either waste my time by starting a new series on Netflix or do something productive with my time.  I got an email from my sorority over Summer break from a former member who was working at a company in Louisville who was looking for some interns. I decided that this would be a good way to use my time. I went and interviewed and got the internship when I got back to Colorado for the school year.

Home Sweet Home!

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are as excited as I am for the upcoming holiday! Traveling home ended up being a little more crazy then I was initially planning. I woke up on Thursday morning (the morning I was going to fly home), to freezing temperatures and snow! I always check online to make sure my flight is still scheduled. Unfortunately… it was delayed! I started out only being delayed about 25 minutes… and then slowly the delay time increased. By the end, it was delayed a total of about 2.5 hours.

Making Time for the Hunger Games

Saturday, November 23, 2013

This week, despite the amount of last-minute projects I had due before Thanksgiving break, I still made time to go see the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Young Life took 23 kids to the premiere at the 29th Street Mall movie theater! We sat in line for an hour beforehand (with 100 other college students) and filled up two entire rows of seats. We passed giant bags of leftover Halloween candy up and down the rows, eagerly eating chocolate so we wouldn't fall asleep for the next three hours!

Work Crew Weekend

Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Sometimes in the middle of the semester, we all desire a quick getaway. Young Life College at CU took a weekend trip to help work at Frontier Ranch camp in Buena Vista, Colorado last weekend. We worked in the dining hall as cooks, dishwashers, and servers for 400+ middle schoolers and their leaders coming for Snow Camp. I attached a group picture below.

Turkish Delight

Greetings! Chris here, checking in after being stranded in Istanbul, and having just completed a fantastic 15 page paper, or at least I found it pretty impressive.

Thanksgiving Break: The Journey to The Airport

Sunday, November 17, 2013

Happy Sunday everyone! I know you all must be getting excited that the holidays are just right around the corner! Being that I am a senior, some of my classes are not scheduled for next week (or we are supposed to do independent work). This means…. I get to go home for thanksgiving break early!!! Whoohoo! I am so excited because since I have been at CU, I have never had an extra 2-3 days of thanksgiving break. I definitely need to start packing! Sometimes (unintentionally), I leave packing to the last minute and always seem to forget something.
