Last night, my roommates and I were reflecting on our past four years at CU. My roommate, Kristen, said something that made me think. She said, "I wish that we had as much confidence freshman year as we do now." This made me think, what would I tell myself if I could back to freshman year?
As I write this, there is snow on the ground in Colorado, and here, today will be a lovely 75 degrees! Fahrenheit, not Celsius. Though I will be in a conference all day, I thought I would write about the lovely day at the beach I had last weekend.

Well Crew, something very exciting happened this week, as you may have guessed from the title… I took the bus! To Denver! More specifically to Union Station. As for why I decided to mosey over to the Mile High City, my sister (who attends DU) had the car that I need to give piano lessons, and somehow she convinced me that it would be impossible for her to drive up and then bus back down to Denver, the only option was for me to go down to Denver and then drive back up to Boulder. Little sisters who might be reading this, the manipulation never really ends, does it?

This week is one insane, but fun, week for me. It is Greek eek! Each sorority is paired with a fraternity for the week and they compete against the others teams in various activities. Its one of the best weeks of the year in Greek life (grant it, it would also be more fun if I didn’t have midterms)
We started off with a banner competition that some of my sisters, who are considerably more artistic than me made. Personally I think they did an amazing job, if I had made that it would have looked like a child’s finger painting.
Last week, the Boulder Farmers Market came back to town! The Farmers Market is just a few blocks down from my house on 13th and Arapahoe, so on Saturday morning my roommates, Kristen, Melissa, and I walked down. The Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from now until November from 8 AM to 2 PM. Local merchants come to sell food, plants, and much more. Stands include crepes, smoothies powered by bikes, and of course fruits and vegetables. The Boulder Farmers Market is a great place for the local community to come down and enjoy great food, music, and company.
I've realized that I write this blog mostly about the things I do outside of class, which got me thinking about my time in college and what I'm getting out of it. I'd like to say that I perfectly understand the value of my education, and that I know how my current academic path will benefit me in the future. That is a hard thing to wrap your mind around, though, especially when it's unclear what you'll be doing or contributing to the world.

Friday marked the beginning of Greek Week 2015! Greek Week is a week-long competition in which sororities and fraternities compete to become the Greek Week Champions. Greek Week preparation typically starts weeks in advance, but it is the week of Greek Week that we come together as a team and give our hearts and souls to every event. During this week, every sorority is paired with that fraternity (or two) to form a team. Every year Greek Week has a theme, this year it is superheroes.

This past weekend my entire family (mom's side) came to town. This meant that for five days my grandparents, parents, aunts/uncles, siblings and cousins would all be in my beautiful city of Boulder, Colorado. The majority of my family had never been to Boulder before, so they were excited to see where I live and go to school. There were fourteen of us in the group that came to visit, and ages ranged from 70 years old to 10 years old. Even with a variety of ages and interests everyone was able to find something that they enjo

It's the most wonderful time of the year! As the holidays are fastly approaching, there is holiday spirit in the air. Everywhere you look in Boulder, there is something special to put you in the holiday mood. All of the shopping centers are decorated with strings of lights, wreaths, and garland. It...
