Dress to Impress: Sombrero’s are Formal Attire

Monday, April 28, 2014

Hi All!

The last week of class has finally arrived, and it has been quite the semester so far. Last night, the Ambassadors organization held the End-Of-The-Year Banquet at the Rio Grande on Pearl Street. The Rio, as it is called for short, is a popular destination for both Boulder residents and CU students, and serves some of the best Mexican food in Boulder.

The Evolution of the Selfie Through Time

Monday, April 28, 2014

As many of you know, the selfie has taken over the world. Thanks to snapchat, and the technological advancements in smart phones that allow us to actually turn the camera around on us, we are now able to take extremely vain images of ourselves and compose them nicely.

 

However, because of the ease of these sorts of images, adults have now caught on to the selfie craze as well. This closing of the generational gap has given me a terrific number of priceless selfies accrued on my phone over the years, and I now give you the evolution of the selfie through time.

Another Dodgeball Season Comes Up Short

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Hi All!

In case you do not know, I am an avid Intramural sports participant here at CU. I have played almost every intramural sport including basketball, ultimate Frisbee, and dodgeball, to name a few of my favorites. However, I think I have been cursed with some sort of losing spell. No matter what intramural team I play on, we almost always lose, and come playoff time, we always lose in the first round. Even when I play on a really good team, we always end up losing more than we win. This session of dodgeball was no exception to the rule.

Last But Not Least...

Sunday, April 27, 2014

The past two weeks and the two weeks ahead are full of "lasts" for me. I feel like I am constantly seeking "firsts" in my life (and especially shared on this blog!) such as my first time to Trader Joes, Dunkin' Donuts, a new hiking trail, a new campus event, etc. But with graduation soon approaching, I find myself going through a crazy number of "lasts"!

Run Boulder

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

 

 

Hello Everyone!

I hope these final days in April are finding you well! I would like to take this time to quickly tell you what I have been up to: training for a 15k!

I only decided to sign up a couple of weeks ago, but it was enough time for me to get in some quick training in before the race (which is this Saturday).

Hi everyone!

Well, it is now official! I am now a “brother” of Alpha Phi Omega, and I couldn’t be happier! I have loved every minute of my time with APO.

A Big Game in the Big House

Monday, April 21, 2014

 

 

Last weekend, we finished up our 2014 regular season for lacrosse in style.

 

Sports Authority field at Mile High is the home to the Denver Broncos (and Peyton Manning), and is the largest stadium in the state of Colorado. A strange thing to think about is that Mile High, despite being a giant building of over 75,000 seats, is only really used for 8-14 days per year.

Crazy Colorado Weather

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

 

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to announce that spring has finally sprung in Boulder!! Tulips are starting to appear on campus, and I can actually walk to class without having to wear gloves! In fact, all last week the weather was in the 70s!

Quick Trips

Monday, April 14, 2014

One of the best things about college is the variable scheduling. For me, that means I do not have class on Wednesdays, which means Tuesday nights are open for exploring all that Colorado has to offer. One of my friends from Texas had never been to a Rockies game (Colorado's Major League Baseball team), so last Tuesday night, we made our way down to Coors Field to give him the full experience! Coors Field has a section called The Rockpile with $4 tickets. Your meal will cost you three times as much as your ticket!

2048 - A Stupid Life Ruining Game

Monday, April 14, 2014

 

Alright, so my title here might be a little bit over dramatic.

 

There is a new game that is growing pretty rapidly in popularity on the App Store. It's called 2048, and there was a time when I was hopelessly addicted to it.

 

Basically, the game works where you get tiles of 2's and you can combine like numbers to build in powers of two's (two 2's combine to make a 4, two 4's combine to 8, etc.)
