Greek Week 2015

Monday, April 13, 2015

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.

Family Reunion in Boulder

Friday, April 10, 2015

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

A Weekend in the Mountains

Thursday, April 9, 2015

I'm pretty sure that life doesn't get much better than a weekend with your friends in the mountains. My friend Paul has some family friends who gave us a discount on their place in Breckenridge (I know), and so eleven of us went up there this past weekend. I don't ski or snowboard, but some of the group did, and got to use their passes. We brought enough food to last a week, and ran through the house claiming rooms when we arrived. My friend Sara and I shared the master suite with the king bed and enormous bathroom.

The Easter Bunny Lindy Hops?

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Unfortunately this blog post isn’t going to be quite as dangerous as the last one, as I only have one week to draw from. If you haven’t yet read last week’s blog, I highly recommend you check it out before it’s destroyed for being too full of fun and adventure. So go, I’ll wait here.

Now that that’s out of the way, like I was saying, this week hasn’t been as exciting as the last one, but there have been crazy parts.

Easter

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Easter is a holiday that was always big in my family when we were little. We would dye eggs, go to brunch, and eat a lot of chocolate. But since, at least for me, the Easter egg hunts ended a long time ago, we had to come up with a new tradition that would fit in with having kids in different states. Every Easter, my family comes to Boulder to celebrate. My mom always loves the tulips that bloom on the Pearl Street Mall so she loves this excuse to come here in the Sping. This year, my parents and one of my sisters came out to Boulder.

St. Stevie of Wonder

As I have told you before, I love music. I think that excellent musicianship is a dying art, and that there are few things more soothing than seeing a truly skilled musician performing their craft.

A Day in the Life

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Heads up I don’t have the most interesting life so this post might be a bit boring, but when I was in high school I always wondered what a day in the life of a college student actually looked liked. So here you go!

7:45 Wake Up

Unfortunately you might be stuck with a 8 am or two over the course of your freshmen year, like me. And trust me 7:30 in college seems a whole lot earlier than 7:30 in high school.  I got dressed really fast, considering I slept till the absolute last possible second, and headed off to my first class.

Homestay? Sign me up.

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Bonjour! 

A lot of our study abroad programs at CU have homestay options, so I thought I would write about how AWESOME mine is! 

Before I came to France, I was a little nervous about doing a homestay. I had heard horror stories about them from people I know, and I was under the impression that I was going to have a bad one. I had just accepted the fact that that's the way it was going to be. Au contraire, mon ami. On the contrary!

7 Things I Miss Most

Friday, April 3, 2015

Bonjour tout le monde! 

I cannot believe how quickly this semester is going... it is April. What? When did that happen? I can't believe in a little over two months, I will be returning to DIA to meet my awaiting family. Though I am really enjoying my time here in France, I am looking forward to go home. Of course I am taking advantage of all of the opportunities I have here, like traveling, going on adventures, meeting people, and practicing my French. I do really miss Boulder.  

Things I miss most about Boulder, Colorado, and the United States in general:
