A Weekend Hiatus in Moab

Thursday, April 3, 2014

 

As a lacrosse player, the concept of a week-long beach vacation for spring break is little more than a fallacy for me. Every year, the team plays games for break, and thus we spend the week grounded in Boulder when the rest of the school bails to somewhere with sandy beaches.

 

Well, for the first time since I started competitively playing lacrosse, I was given a few days of break to myself. Our coaches gave us three entire days off. When given a gift like this, the only option is to ask yourself, what is the most epic thing I can do today?

Impromptu Trip to Utah

Hi all,

I hope everyone has been enjoying the first couple of days of Spring as much as I have! This past week, we have been on Spring Break, and it has been a break to be remembered.

College Essentials

Monday, March 24, 2014

I was inspired to write this blog post after realizing my appreciation for my laundry basket. As silly as that sounds, this white little cube has stuck with me for the past four years of my time at CU, and I never expected it to be an essential part of my college experience. I have used my laundry basket not only for laundry, but also for transporting things between my house and school, bringing a big collection of ingredients to a friend's house for baking, or a storage place for things I knew I needed to make sure I took home to my parents the next time I saw them!

Springtime!

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Hello everyone!

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!

Intramurals All Around

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

If you've done much research about college, you know that intramural sports are one of the activities you MUST try before you graduate. Even with a busy Second-Semester-Senior schedule, I am playing on a dodgeball team with other Ambassadors and a basketball team (first time since middle school...) with some of my friends. After the basketball tournament in Aspen from my most recent post, I decided to join an intramural basketball team back at school!

Jam-packed Weekend with the Sister

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

 

Hi everyone!

This past weekend was one of the best weekends of the year for a number of reasons:

1) Daylight Savings – it now stays lighter later, which means more time for outdoor activities during the day!

2) The weather thought it was already almost summer, and decided to hold between 60 and 72 degrees (which is seriously unheard of at this time of year!)

3) My little sister came to visit me!!

The Beauty of Intramurals

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

Hi everyone!

I just have to start off by pointing out the unbelievable weather we have this week! It is sunny and a solid 55 degrees in the middle of the day (in the beginning of March, no less!)  It practically feels like summer! Even in the midst of midterms, I can tell that there is a slightly different feeling when walking around campus – people just seem happier! I see kids studying out on Farrand field, playing football in the quads, and actually running outside instead of in the gym. Yes, life is good.

Annex at Aspen

Tuesday, March 4, 2014

A theme of my senior year seems to be packing in all of my work during the week so that I can play on the weekends. This past weekend was no exception! Two of my friends and I made our way at 4 AM up to Aspen to ski at Snowmass for the day with one of the campus ministries we attend, The Annex. They were having their annual retreat that involves 80+ kids staying in the floor of a high school in Aspen, skiing for one day, and participating in an epic basketball tournament!
