For my last post of the semester, I wanted to let you all know about my plans for the summer. Summers in Colorado are always beautiful, sunny and warm, so staying active is a must. As of right now, I have a fairly busy summer ahead of me. Here is what I will be doing:
1. Playing baseball for the Boulder Collegians: I played on the Collegians last summer. The team is composed of college players from around the country who come stay in Boulder for the summer. This summer, we will be playing something like 45 games in 45 days, which is a lot of baseball. If you are in Boulder for an afternoon, there is nothing like watching some good baseball being played at Scott Carpenter Park. Check out the team at http://www.bouldercollegians.com/
2. Working on a School of Education research project: I have been working on this project for the past semester and will continue to do research throughout the summer. The project is focused on implementing a high-school physics curriculum. Working on this project has been a great experience so far, and I have been able to get a glimpse into the research side of a big university like CU.
3. Hiking 14ers: During my freshman year at CU, I made a personal goal to hike all 54 fourteeners in Colorado. Right now, I am at 10, so I have a ways to go. This summer, I plan on crossing 15 to 20 14ers off of my checklist.

4. Camping in Canyonlands National Park: Every year for the past 4 years, we have made the trek to Utah for a weeklong camping trip. This year, we have been very behind on our planning, and we leave in two days. Without any preparations, this year’s trip is bound to be eventful and full of adventure.

I hope you all have a great summer!
Until next time and GO BUFFS!
