No Frills Conference

Monday, March 4, 2013

This past weekend I had the opportunity to represent the University of Colorado, Boulder at the annual No Frills Conference for the Residence Hall Association (RHA). At the conference, we discussed how each schools RHA was doing and we could improve for the future. In addition to that, we also prepared for our National Conference, which will be at the University of Pittsburgh this May. Last year the University of Colorado, Boulder was the host of this National Conference and it was a blast having people from schools all across our nation.

RedemptChen

Sunday, March 3, 2013

After a brutal loss against, ranked fourth in the Nation, University of Arizona in Arizona earlier in January the Basketball Team was not the only people ready for some redemptChen. I arrived an hour before the game tipped off and the student section was already half full. Even though it was the day of love, there was no love given by our student section, which all the students decided to wear black shirts to intimidate Arizona with our blacked out student section. The game went a little back and forth but Tad Boyle kept his guys motivated to hold the lead until the last second.

Stop and Smell the Roses

Sunday, March 3, 2013

 

Well, it’s that time again--- midterm time. During this crazy week, you might find me locked away in my most favorite study spots on campus, or procrastinating in my most favorite spots around Boulder. This midterm week(s) I have done a little bit of both. You see, my time here in Boulder and at CU is limited. I mean, I will be graduating in…too soon to even mention, and every time I think about it, my heart aches. So, I have decided that this semester, even though I am crazy busy, I will take time to stop and smell the roses and enjoy all that is Boulder.

I am coming to you live from Boise, Idaho (which, as a side thought, is a very nice city).

Midterm Week

Friday, March 1, 2013

Last weekend, I went to Aspen with a giant group from The Annex ministry here in Boulder. We stayed overnight in Aspen High School's gym and skied during the day! I had never skied at Aspen before, but I was totally impressed! They had a foot of new snow in the past three days - the mogul runs did not even have packed moguls, you could completely shred through them! And for some reason, my friends and I were the only people on the runs we had found for most of the day - I promise I'm not complaining about that! They were by far some of the best skiing conditions I've ever experienced.

Study Abroad!

Thursday, February 28, 2013

 

My study abroad experience in Salamanca, Spain during the fall of 2013 and South America during the spring of 2014 is one that I am undertaking in order to grow personally, culturally, and academically.  I have spent countless hours planning for this semester, and I believe that it will be extremely enriching across all areas of my being.  The things I will learn, places I will see, and most importantly people that I will meet will add a much-needed fresh perspective to the way I see the world and approach my daily life.

...Whay Day is it Today?

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Have you ever had just one of those weeks in which so much has happened, that you feel like a lot more time has passed than just a week? Well, this week was one of those. Not only are midterms in full swing, I also managed to get a tutoring job for the CU Athletics Department, which is really exciting! I am so excited to start working with the student-athletes, and to see a different side of CU Athletics that not many people get to see! However, this job means decided between moving home or staying out here after graduation, which, as many of you know, is an extremely difficult decision.

Busy Times!

Monday, February 25, 2013

 

Hey everyone!

Sorry I’ve been so terrible at posting! I know you all are anxious to see what I’ve been up to in Boulder! Unfortunately, there’s so much to do that I forget about blogging sometimes! Luckily for me, when I’m forgetting to blog, I’m doing fun things to blog about later. For example, the past two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity.

Snow Storm!

Monday, February 25, 2013

This weekend, a snow storm hit Boulder. While for many people this means it's time to curl up on the couch, start a fire, and watch The Notebook, for my and friends and me, it means it's time to play outside. When we saw how much it was going to snow, we got so excited and couldn't wait for the weekend ahead of us. Being from California, I get way too excited when it starts to snow and although it's February and it has snowed plenty of times this year, I still run around the house screaming for everyone to go outside.
