CU Boulder is on Spring break! I know a lot of people going out of town, or road tripping with friends, but I am just going home, to Centennial, CO, which is just south of Denver. I am really looking forward to spending time with my parents and relaxing at home. I am also hoping to get some skiing in! Unfortunately, I have a lot to do over break, including some projects for some classes and I have to find a summer job. But I am definitely looking forward to doing nothing for a while!
Last week was really stressful for me. I had 5 exams over the course of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I feel pretty alright about all of them, and I have already gotten on grade back and I did well, so that’s good! So that means that I spent most of last week, and last weekend, studying. Last weekend was St. Patrick’s Day weekend. For some reason, everyone in Boulder loves St. Paddy’s day, and a ton of people go all out with celebrations. I guess it is mostly those lucky students who didn’t have midterms! Since school is the top priority, though, I spent almost all of my time studying. Although I did feel a little bit like I was potentially missing out, I know that studying is more important and I was thankful for my hard work when my exams went well! I know all of the hard work will also pay off when I am applying for graduate schools. I’m not sure my brain could have taken a weekend of only studying, though, so I did find some time to take a study break Friday afternoon to get coffee with some friends. After we got coffee we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and go up to the overlook on Flagstaff Road. Here is a picture of us!
It was beautiful that day and super warm. I was thankful for the opportunity to take a break from the books and spend some time absorbing some Vitamin D! The friends I met up with are actually pretty new friends, because I met them this semester when I joined APO! I’ve met some amazing people and I have already had some really fun experiences with new friends. Just another reason to get involved with different clubs and groups on campus!
Until next time!
Oh, another thing! Boulder now runs on Dunkin! My friends and I went to go check it out the other night and to enjoy some chocolate sprinkled donuts!
