Studying in Boulder

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Every CU-Boulder student has their favorite study spot. With the many buildings on campus, a giant library, and numerous cafes all over the city, there are many options for where to best get work done. I have a few spots that are my go to places, usually depending on how much time I have, what I need to get done, and what day of the week it is.

Observing Surgery!

Hey everyone! The school year is just about wrapping up, so these are my final posts (for this blog, I’m sure I’ll make posts elsewhere one day).

Coffee Week

Monday, April 22, 2013

The weather this past week certainly qualified as a blizzard here in Colorado! I scraped my car five times on last Wednesday alone. Young Life College at CU was supposed to go down to the Rockies game (a 30 minute bus ride away!) but the piles of snow cancelled the game and our trip. So instead, we put on a Coffee House event at one of our houses and invited everyone over for warm drinks and good treats. I manned the Keurig machine while 55 of our closest friends crammed into a two-bedroom apartment - bet you've never heard of a coffee party before!

Yoga in Boulder

Sunday, April 21, 2013

When I was in High School, I started doing Yoga with my mom as way to bond and a way to get through my senioritis. This is when I realized that I really liked doing yoga as a way to work out. Since I've been in college, I've loved finding new ways to excercise and new classes to attend. One of my favorite things to still do is attend yoga classes. This can get pretty expensive since drop in classes are a little too pricey for me, even though they do have student discounts which is really nice. I go when I can, but this can add up.

Boulder Style

Friday, April 19, 2013

A few years ago Boulder was awarded/insulted by two different magazine write-ups. In one Boulder was ranked the Worst-dressed city in America. In another Boulder's populace was voted the "Best to look at Naked."

 

Well, walking around town I have certainly seen my fair share of fashion faux paus. However, let's be real, the reason people wear such horrible clothing is because they're so comfortable. So, I have compiled a few steps on how to fit dress right in Boulder:

 

1. Bucket hats are cool.

 

2. Socks and Sandals are A-OK (see picture)

Silver Linings

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Silver linings have been playing a big part in my life recently, especially regarding this weather. While I do think that it is absolutely crazy that we're getting this much snow in April, my silver lining is that I get to see the Flatirons covered in snow one last time before moving back east, which is absolutely an amazingly beautiful sight. Aside from the weather, things have also been pretty crazy, especially seeing that finals and graduation are less than three weeks away!

New Restaurants and Weird Weather

Monday, April 15, 2013

I have realized my blog has become very food centered this semester as I've explored the variety of restaurants scattered throughout Boulder. Boulder was voted one of the "Foodiest" cities in the US recently, so naturally there are lots of places to try!

I went to The Cup on Pearl to meet with a friend for coffee last Tuesday on my day off. The Cup is a cute, local coffee shop that has a unique and wide variety of coffee options, including espresso and ice cream in the same cup - something I will have to try this summer!

April (snow) Showers Bring May Flowers

Monday, April 15, 2013

 

Ahhh Springtime! Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and the sun is shining….well, in some places.  Welcome to springtime in the Rockies--- where the months are filled with more snow than some places get during the winter.
