Today marks the first day of spring, although it has been feeling a lot like spring for the past two weeks here in Boulder. The weather has been extremely warm for the past two weeks and it has made it impossible to do anything except play outside. Everyday people have been spending every waking moment outside on Farrand Field playing frisbee, slack lining, and even tanning. Between every class, I have gone and sat out on Farrand and just simply soaked up the sun. A few days ago, my friend Gracie and I read all day on the field and then went to get hamburgers at the Grab 'N Go and ate them outside for a little picnic.
These days have been absolutely amazing and have made me so happy. One of my friends noticed that many of the same people came out on Farrand everyday and we began to call them Farrand Rats. These Farrand Rats look like they're having the time of their life and are enjoying the sun and good weather just as much as I am. I am so excited about this good weather and it has made me so excited for spring!
