It seems that this past week there has sickness upon us here at CU, and at least half of the school has had some kind of cold! Unfortunately, two of my roommates, countless other friends, and myself were not immune. On top of battling stuffy noses and sore throats, most people had midterms this past week. Luckily, I had a Cold Care Kit saved from last year that helped me out. Cold Care Kits are these great little bags that are filled with your cold remedy essentials: hand sanitizer, soup mixes, tea bags, cough drops, tissues, honey sticks, etc. They are free at the Wardenburg Health Center on campus.
A cold couldn’t stop me from having at least a little fun after a long week of studying and tests. Friday night, I met up with a couple friends and went to the women’s volleyball game at the Coors Event Center. This year I am trying to get more into CU sports, since it wasn’t really something I was super interested in last year. I bought tickets to the CU men’s football and basketball games this year, and I have been to both football games so far. All other sporting events on campus are free to students with their student IDs. It was a lot of fun to see our women’s volleyball team beat UCLA, another really good team! I spent the game in the second row and being so close made it even more fun! Unfortunately, my phone died that night, so I couldn’t get any pictures, but I have included a picture from cubuffs.com below.
Saturday night, a group of my friends and I went out to Pearl Street for dinner. I love exploring Pearl for new restaurants and coffee shops. I always tell people on my tours to check out Pearl Street, especially on a weekend, because there is always so much going on. It certainly has a lot of character! We ended up eating at West End Tavern, which I definitely recommend! Because I still had a cold, I just got the French Onion Soup, which was amazing. It was a really fun night! I spent the rest of my weekend catching up on sleep and studying for another midterm I have this week. Wish me luck!
