Can It Be Spring Break Again?

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Wow, what an amazing spring break! It was a week of a lot of firsts for me, which was really cool. While I have traveled around foreign countries quite a bit, I have never really been around the US at all, so driving through New Mexico and Arizona was quite a sight! Very open...lots of bushes...lots of mesas. It was also my first road trip, and the first time I've ever seen a cactus. One the way back up to Colorado from Tuscon we drove through a National Forrest and it was literally a forrest of suaro cacti. Insane! Also, I've never been that far south before, and let me tell you, I miss the heat already!

The University of Arizona was wonderful, as was Tucson itself, but I will definitely admit that traveling there made me love and appreciate Boulder and my university even more. It also made me realize that the rivalry between CU Buffs and Arizona Wildcats is a lot more intense that I had originally thought. Probably should have packed more non-CU related clothing...things got awkward. Especially after the Wildcats lost their March Madness game on Thursday. Aside from that rivalry, Boulder is also way more college friendly and fun! Maybe I haven't seen the "collegy" parts yet, but from what I did see, it's really spread out! A thing I love about Boulder is that I can walk anywhere I need to go within a half an hour. Also, we have way prettier mountains. Just saying.

But now that spring break has passed, it's crunch time! Greek Week is rapidly approaching, as well as finals and graduation! There are two things that I'm trying to forget about...can you guys guess which ones? Luckily I've been so busy with everything lately that it's been easier to forget about! I hope everyone has a great week and is enjoying the first few days of baseball season! Go Sox!
