I have to lift three times per week with the lacrosse team at 7:15 a.m. As a result, I am on campus before classes get going, and I am usually riding home right around the time that classes are finally starting.
This has lent itself to some very funny observations. I’ve seen a few zombie-looking students, with a liter of coffee in hand, making their way over to the library to squeeze out the final few minutes of preparation. I have even seen a student, during midterms, who actually pitched a tent and camped out in front of his class building, in order to maximize the amount of time he could spend studying.
I have also seen a handful of students who slept through their alarm for their 8 o’clock class, and as a result, were sprinting across campus, with all of their stuff in their hands, trying desperately to make it to class on time.
However, probably the best part about campus in the early morning is the sunrise. The sunrises and sunsets in Boulder are famous for their beauty, and I get to watch it 3 times a week on my way to work out (I will admit, as wonderful as the sunrises are, I won’t wake up for them unless there is something else driving me out of bed). The picture attached is one such sunrise.
Until Next Time,
