Almost to Spring Break

Sunday, March 18, 2012

 

Hey everyone. I'm sorry I haven't been too active on this blog, it's midterm season and I've been swamped. 

But the good news is, we're almost to spring break! For whatever reason, CU seems to always have spring break a bit later than the schools that most of my friends attend. The upside of that is my friends can come visit me and experience the awesomeness that is Boulder, CO! My good friend Rob came and visited me for the past week. Luckily, my schedule allowed me to mostly take the week off (besides my classes, of course) and show Rob how we have fun at CU. We went skiing twice, hiked Chautauqua, played campus golf all over campus, and even went on a campus tour so he could see the campus up close. Skiing was beautiful, even coming from a full-time CU student. The sky was clear, the sun was warm, and the snow was actually pretty good for this weird warm weather. The rest of the time, we just hung out with my fraternity brothers and introduced Rob to the rest of my friends. 

Also coming up soon is the registration period for next semester’s classes. I found out recently that I only have 14 hours worth of classes left to graduate! That basically translates to 2 courses per semester for the next two semesters. So now I’m presented with the privilege (and maybe challenge?) of finding two interesting classes to fill my time so I can remain a full-time student. I’m not really sure what I’m going to take, but I’m thinking I’ll take some sort of language class just to learn a new skill. Whatever those classes end up being, it’s not likely they’ll be any harder than my remaining biochemistry lab, microbiology, or inorganic chemistry courses.

I’m sorry I don’t have any awesome pictures from my relaxing week (they’re all on Rob’s phone), but as soon as I get them, they’ll be right up here. And I’ll also try my hardest to keep this blog more up to date. Go Buffs (even though we just got knocked out of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament)!
