Bring on Winter Break

Friday, December 13, 2013


Hi all,

It’s the last day of class for the semester and finals start tomorrow so you know what that means. That’s right, a lot of studying…and basketball games? Despite me having a couple papers to write a few final exams to study for, the CU basketball team plays another home game tonight, against Elon. At this stressful time of the year, I cannot imagine a better study break than watching our #21 in the nation Buffs play some basketball. Just like any study break though, the time after the break becomes crunch time. After going to class all day, and watching the basketball game, I will have to finish a research paper and study for my math exam tomorrow afternoon. However, I am looking forward to Monday as I will be done with school for the semester and on winter break.

For break this year, I will be staying in Boulder for most of the time. As a college student on break in Boulder, I will have about 4 weeks to catch up on everything that I’ve wanted to do. First, I plan on going skiing several times each week. The mountains have been getting a ton of snow this year and the couple times that I have been up have been awesome. Next, I’m going to try and get in shape for the spring club baseball season. Hopefully skiing does the trick for this and I can knock out two birds with one stone. Also, the basketball plays three big games over break against Oregon, Oregon State and Georgia. I plan on attending all three as the winter break games are often some of the most fun games of the season. I also will attempt to catch up on sleep. I don’t know about you, but 12 hours of sleep per night sounds awfully good after a tiring semester of school. Lastly, I will try to hike up the Boulder star at some point over break because I haven’t gone up there yet this year. I might even try to do some sledding. Sounds like a pretty enjoyable break, right?

Good luck with the end of your semester and have a great winter break!
