Yes my friends, it’s that time again. That magical time when students are back from break and the Hill is once again bustling with life and excitement. Now don’t get me wrong, being a close-to-Boulder native I do enjoy the times when students go home and the Boulderites have the run of the town once again. The campus just has such a different feel once everyone leaves.

Today, as I sit down to watch the NFL conference championship games, I am absolutely miserable. A week ago, I was at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, watching my beloved Denver Broncos blow a late-game lead against the Baltimore Ravens. I will always bleed orange and blue, but the end to this season was especially tough for me as well as all of Bronco Nation.
My roommates and I are big football fans, as we are men. Since we are all Colorado natives, so we are all passionate Broncos fans, and Peyton Manning is our new favorite player. Despite the tragic loss last week, we are still very proud of our Donkeys (as they have been affectionately nicknamed) and are already holding our breath for the start of next season.
Hi everyone! The Spring 2013 semester has started, and it is already packed as usual! I went on a mission trip to Belize over Winter Break, so I'm still adjusting to the cold weather and altitude here, not to mention different food and societal norms! Reverse culture shock is a great experience to be going through! I went with a group from one of the college ministries I attend, The Annex, of 24 of us, and now that we are all back in the US we have weekly gatherings so we don't lose touch with busy schedules!
Ah the Winter Break. It really is the best part of the school year. Most students will go home and spend time with their families before returning for the Spring semester. This year, we had a shorter than normal break, which drew some groans from other students, but nonetheless, we had about a month off to unwind. Many students also take this opportunity to make headway on their ski passes, and almost everyone who skis uses break as an opportunity to get a few days in.
Starting in 6th grade, my friends and I have engaged in our country's most popular hobby. No, not NASCAR, not fishing, not baseball, not even political partisanship. A pastime that captures the minds, hearts, and productive work times of millions of Americans today. The one and only fantasy football.
After surviving the latest round of finals, I am more than glad to be on winter break. This semester was especially stressful for me, for a few reasons. However, I was certainly not alone in my finals dread.
Following CU's win over CSU at a sold-out, record-crowd Coors Events Center, the Buffs headed to Lawrence, Kansas to take on the #6 Kansas Jayhawks. Naturally, my roommates and I decided to come along for the ride.
With finals week once again upon us, it's time to stop messing around and get down to work. This is a little bit hard when you know you won't see your friends for three weeks and just want to talk to them every minute that you can. My finals schedule this semester is a little bit brutal, with finals on Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and two of Wednesday. And to top it all off I am flying home Wednesday night straight after my final. At least I can sleep all day Thursday at home. I had a lot of studying to do, well I still do but a lot less.
Just three days, three final exams, and a two-hour plane ride remain between me and my return to Texas. It’s bittersweet however, because, as I’ve been trying to show all semester, life is pretty fun at CU. I’m definitely going to miss all of my fraternity brothers and other Boulder friends, but it will be nice to see my Texas friends as well. It’ll also be nice to not have to worry about how many layers to wear, as the weather is much warmer back home.

So on this relaxing Sunday, I hung out at a friend’s house and watched the Green Bay Packers squeeze by the Chicago Bears to win the NFC championship and earn a place at this year’s Superbowl. It was a good time, with lots of junk food (always a sign of a good time).
This time of the year is...
