Can It Be Spring Break Again?

Thursday, April 4, 2013

Wow, what an amazing spring break! It was a week of a lot of firsts for me, which was really cool. While I have traveled around foreign countries quite a bit, I have never really been around the US at all, so driving through New Mexico and Arizona was quite a sight! Very open...lots of bushes...lots of mesas. It was also my first road trip, and the first time I've ever seen a cactus. One the way back up to Colorado from Tuscon we drove through a National Forrest and it was literally a forrest of suaro cacti. Insane!

Pets on Campus

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

The other day I realized that I know a lot of people with pets.

 

The residence halls don't allow anything with dander. So basically you can only have a fish in the dorms. 

 

However, once you move off campus, there are many landlords who will let you have a pet in a rental house. Some make you put up and a slightly larger deposit, but if you have a pet you want to bring with you, you can just look around for leases that are pet friendly.

Here are some pictures of pets owned by me or my friends.

From Blizzard to Beach Time

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

Spring Break 2013 was one to remember! After a bit of car trouble, I spent 30 hours traveling to San Clemente, California with 15 of my fellow Lady Leaders from Young Life in Boulder. But 30 hour in a car means 30 hours of memories, so it was totally worth it! Once we got there, we spent every morning in the sun, followed by running, tanning, and surfing at the beach. Surfing was one of the most fun experiences of my life - I love any opportunity to spend time in water!

Easter

Monday, April 1, 2013

This year for Easter, my family flew out to Boulder so that we could all spend time together. We woke up in the morning and I went on an easy run around the town while my dad and my sister went on a harder run up Boulder canyon. They said that it was the most beautiful run that they have been on because it is up the mountains and has a beautiful view the whole time. We then went to Easter brunch at the Hotel Boulderado. This is an old hotel down by the Pearl Street Mall, which is said to be haunted. It is really cool looking and serves the best brunch!

Spring Break: New York

Monday, April 1, 2013

This Sprink Break, I went to New York City with my Mom and sister. It was so nice to get a whole week off and just relax for a little bit. We got in on Sunday night, so I stayed with my roommate in Littleton for two days before we left, where we watched Grease 2 and hung out with her family. When we got into New York, we went to a restaurant on top of an art museum. We began to notice that we stuck out a little bit because we were wearing brightly colored pants and jackets while everybody in New York was wearing black and grey.

The Big Apple

Monday, April 1, 2013

 

Over spring break, I used a much needed week to relax and recharge for the final push of the semester.  After finishing homework and taking care of some loose ends, I tagged along with my family to New York City for three nights.  My sister, an exceptional junior at Boulder High School, was visiting colleges in the city, and the opportunity for a short vacation presented itself.

I Want To Be Apart of It--- New York, New York

Sunday, March 31, 2013

 

My whole life I have dreamed of visiting New York City. I’ve spent a lot of time watching Friends, Gossip Girl, Sex and the City and dreaming of what it would be like to walk down the streets where these shows were set. This Spring Break, my dream finally came true!

Springtime

Sunday, March 31, 2013

 

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying nice spring weather wherever you are, because we sure are in Boulder.

I’ve only been back in town (from spring break) for a few days, but those days have been gorgeous. It got up to just about 70° F today, which was enough to make me regret wearing jeans outside. It’s been fairly quiet for the past few days, but Boulder is definitely filling back up as school gets back on track and students return.
