Use Your Voice

Sunday, November 4, 2012

 

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 Victory

Sunday, November 4, 2012

 

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.

Halloweek!

Sunday, November 4, 2012

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.

First Snow

Friday, November 2, 2012

 

              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.

Weekend at Home

Thursday, November 1, 2012

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.

Happy Halloween!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween everyone! I love this holiday, especially because it means that we're even closer to Thanksgiving, which means my birthday! Woohoo! I saw so many children today in the best costumes. A little girl dressed as a cat even did her best scary cat hiss at me. It was pretty spot on. I remember when I was little, my mom used to do the best face paint for me for Halloween. Especially when I was the Wicked Witch of the West. It was super scary and awesome!

Buffalo Stampede in Eugene

Monday, October 29, 2012

This weekend, missing my cousin Joe like none other, I grabbed a Halloween costume (a hipster) at Savers, packed up a duffel bag with clothes and a few books, and headed out to Eugene, Oregon with my cousin Ben and roommate Philip.  We stayed at Joe's house, a ten minute walk to campus in foggy Eugene.  He lives with an Alaskan, a Minnesotan, an Oregonian, and one of my best friends, Connor Soicher from Denver.

Adventure is Out There!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

 

Well everyone, we are closing in on November. November! What?! Halloweekend is coming to an end and Christmas decorations are taking over the aisle of our favorite retail giants. But there is this little holiday in between Halloween and Christmas, isn’t there? Oh yes! Thanksgiving.

I am so excited for Thanksgiving this year. One week off--- with few school related things to worry about, with time to do whatever I want! So what am I doing with my week? Hopping on a plane to explore DC.

Halloween in Boulder

Sunday, October 28, 2012

 

Halloween is one of those holidays that doesn't obey rules. It can fall on any day of the week, and it can be celebrated on days that aren't Halloween.

A Week Of Fun!

Saturday, October 27, 2012

This week, I had gotten all my homework done on the weekend, so all week I really had no work that was pressing me to get it done! That was nice because I was able to do a lot of social events and spend some time cleaning up my room and using up the last few days of my CorePower Yoga month membership!
