Hey everyone! I hope you all have been enjoying the last few days of September! The weather here has been absolutely amazing! I love that Boulder has all four seasons yet we still have over 300 days of sunshine a year! I would have to say that Fall and Winter are my two favorite seasons here in Boulder. The way the leaves change in the fall here is absolutely breathtaking. Every day that I walk on campus, I take a bunch of photos and then send them to my parents! Since Fall officially started a week ago, I can feel a change in the air!
I feel as though a blog post describing my own experience with the Boulder Flooding is worth sharing so that you get a student perspective! My apartment was completely fine, but some of my friends were less fortunate. Two of them lost all of their clothes in the basement closets of their houses, but it has been so cool to see the way our community has rallied around them to let them "shop" for clothes in one anothers' closets!
After two weeks of a little chaos, it was nice to have a relaxing couple of days this weekend. During the week, I don’t always have time to see all of my friends, so I always try to make time to see them on the weekends. As a Freshman last year, something I did many Friday nights was go to a comedy show, put on by CU’s premier improve comedy troupe, Left Right Tim. A few of my friends saw them perform at their freshman orientation, and toward the end of first semester, we rediscovered their shows.

As many of you know, the city of Boulder was met with torrential, ad very destructive flooding last week. I was born and raised in Boulder, and there has never been anything like this flooding. We do occassionally get wildfires that can be destructive, but nothing on this level has happened in recent memory.
Describing a week in Barcelona is sort of like trying to describe your trip to Disney Land, you have no idea where to start and it's all fantastic. I've spent this last week with friends from many different parts of the world, experiencing wonderful offerings in Barcelona. Something that was certainly worth noting was joining in the festivities of the anual La Merca festival, which happens every September in dedication to the Patron Saint of Barcelona.
Hey Everyone! This past week has been crazy busy for me! On top of all my classes and homework, I started my volunteer internship in the Office of Admissions! I am so excited to be helping out in the office and getting more “real-world” work experience! This past Saturday, I went hiking up at Chautauqua park. My favorite Chautauqua trail goes from the base of the park to the very top of the Fatirons! I would say that it is an intermediate hike and definitely doable, but by the time I was finished, I was ready to eat and just relax!
Can it be? Is it really so? You want my permanent address so you can... gasp... send me my diploma?
It's bizzare. Graduating in December means filling out your graduation information by May 1st. Which is in four days. I have to meet with my advisors and make sure I've got all my ducks in a row......
