Last weekend, was homecoming weekend for CU. Homecoming weekend is a time where alumni come back to Boulder and attend the game and relive some of their favorite college memories. For me, homecoming was all about a competition with all of the other sororities and fraternities. Homecoming weekend started with a Greek letter check in at the UMC where we all wore out greek letters and signed our name on a sheet of paper to show our support. The house with most people wearing their letters won points for their house. The next event for homecoming week was Homecoming King and Queen.
Well, the election is finally over. Whether you like the outcome or not, the campaigning is done. Living in Colorado, this means we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief. Colorado is an important swing state for the presidential election, and the winner of Colorado has won each of the last three presidencies.
In case you didn’t notice, there is an election going on. But, if you’re like many Americans and you’re tired of all of the campaigning don’t worry because all of the ads, campaign stops, and volunteers on the prowl will soon be gone because Election Day is right around the corner! This election is especially exciting to me because it’s the first Presidential Election I get to vote in.

Intramural sports are a huge part of campus life. I’ve played a few different sports at CU, but my favorite is definitely Ultimate Frisbee. Unfortunately, this session, Ultimate Frisbee filled up so fast that my friends and I couldn’t get a team in the league. We instead chose flag football, which is actually a lot of fun as well.

This week was awesome because Halloween landed on a Wednesday, meaning the celebration lasted for multiple nights! I came home to my roommates carving pumpkins or making pumpkin flavored food almost every day. On the weekend before Halloween, my roommates and I went to a couple of costume parties being held by our friends and other Young Life leaders. I dressed up as the black swan, wearing multiple tutus and fake eyelashes! As always, the costume parties turned into dance parties and places to catch up with people you hadn't seen in a while, so it was really fun.
Every year, the Daily Camera (one of Boulder’s local newspapers) holds a contest. People enter in the date they think the first snow of the year will arrive, and whoever gets the date right wins a ski trip of some kind.
This past weekend, I went home to celebrate Halloween with my family in California. I flew home on Friday night and was greeted by my parents and big bowl of chili. It used to be a tradition that before my family went out trick or treating, we would all eat chili in a bread bowl together. Since I don't live at home anymore, we ate chili the first night that I got home. The next day, my family and I all went out to breakfast to my favorite breakfast restaurant in my hometown. After breakfast, we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins to carve.
Despite how crazy busy this time of the semester has been, I still made time for celebrating Halloween. And in case you were wondering, I ended up wearing a pair of Minnie Mouse ears and a black dress for the few events I attended at which I dressed up - I wanted to dress for the occasion, but not...
