The Home Stretch

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Well, I am FINALLY done with my Honors Thesis! I do have to fix two footnotes, but that's simple, and I can do that tomorrow. But as of right now, the bulk of the work is done! Now all I have to do is defend...not quite sure what to expect! Luckily, my thesis advisor is going to do a practice defense with me next week. Honestly, I'm not too nervous about it. I love to talk, and I know everything there is to know about Women and Italian Fascism at this point! I guess I just have to remember to talk slowly and clearly...that can be a huge issue when I get nervous!

Exciting News

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Hello, everyone!

This week I received some exciting news - I was accepted into CU'S School of Education! So now I can take classes towards getting that licensure!

Last week was a bit of a blur, but in a good way. Copper Mountain had a foot of new snow when my friends and I went so we played around in 30 degree sunshine for the day - I still laugh whenever my friend says "most people are in class right now" because it's true, yet we are getting to spend time on the mountain. LOVE variable scheduling in college!

I didn't have much to write about this week, but I was searching through my old photos and I came across an awesome picture that prompted this week's blog.

So it's still midterms, which means that, other than studying, there is a lot of procrastinating going on. But since procrastinating is such a negative word, we'll just call it daydreaming! My friend Jess and I were daydreaming the other day about how fabulous it would be if, instead of getting a big kid job upon graduating, we could just travel the world and see everything. So, that led to us creating the top five places in the entire world that we think everyone should visit given the chance!

Dad's Weekend

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

This past weekend was Dad's weekend for my sorority. Everyones dads came to visit all of us in Boulder and attend some fun events that our Public Relations chairman planned. I was so excited to see my dad, that I couldn't even wait for him to get in on Friday. My friends and I were so bored and so excited to see our dads. The first night when my dad landed, we went to dinner at Ted's Montant Grill on Pearl Street with 3 of my friends and one other dad. It was so great to catch up with everything that we missed in the past few months being apart.

International Film Series

Monday, March 4, 2013

On the CU Boulder campus, there is an event, or series of events, called the International Film Series. They hold screenings in Muenzinger Auditorium and the VAC auditiorium. Each day of the week is a different type of film, Tuesdays are documentaries, Wednesdays are arthouse films, Thursdays are cult films, and weekends are "festival favorites" which tend to be the more popular or well known films. As a student, seeing a film at the IFS is a great deal economically, tickets cost only $6 where as at the bigger theaters tickets can cost around $9.

Snow Snow Dump Dump Dump

Monday, March 4, 2013

Yeah, the first big snow of the year in Boulder came this past weekend. For those out of state students who have never seen snow you can always see their eyes light up with excitement and wonder. We received around 8 inches of snow this past weekend and I love it. Whether you like going outside and throwing snowballs at all of your passing friends or building snowmen. Snow can be the most exciting time of the year. On Sunday, I went to a local hill in Boulder, grabbed my sled, and spent three hours flying down the hill with my roommates and other friends.

No Frills Conference

Monday, March 4, 2013

This past weekend I had the opportunity to represent the University of Colorado, Boulder at the annual No Frills Conference for the Residence Hall Association (RHA). At the conference, we discussed how each schools RHA was doing and we could improve for the future. In addition to that, we also prepared for our National Conference, which will be at the University of Pittsburgh this May. Last year the University of Colorado, Boulder was the host of this National Conference and it was a blast having people from schools all across our nation.

After a brutal loss against, ranked fourth in the Nation, University of Arizona in Arizona earlier in January the Basketball Team was not the only people ready for some redemptChen. I arrived an hour before the game tipped off and the student section was already half full. Even though it was the day of love, there was no love given by our student section, which all the students decided to wear black shirts to intimidate Arizona with our blacked out student section. The game went a little back and forth but Tad Boyle kept his guys motivated to hold the lead until the last second.
