Apologies on not posting in a couple weeks. Life has really been picking up lately. You see, I am currently working on my senior honors thesis and it has been quite an intensive (but rewarding!) undertaking.

Last week was full of administrative fun - I signed a lease on my house for next year, facilitated a few group visits for high schools coming to see the CU campus, and started up the first session of my online course. But as always, I made time for fun along the way.
Last Wednesday, we had a sisterhood at Kappa. Sisterhoods are when we have events just for the girls in the sorority. We get to hang out with each other and do fun activities. In the past, we have gone to WaterWorld, played with a reindeer and saw a psychic. This time, the sisterhood's theme was a bachelorette party. It was a surprise until the day that it happened and our Standards Chair, who planned the event, announced what we were doing when everyone was gathered. We were all so excited to do something fun and new.
Sitting at the end of this crazy week, I will stop and reflect for a second on the whirlwind that it was. Consuming my mind, body, and soul, the past few days have pushed me to my limits and drawn me extremely thin, but at the end of it all I am grateful for the experiences I've had and the journey I am living. Everything will become clear before Spring Break, and I am excited for what lies ahead.
Last weekend I was able to go to SIA at the Convention Center in Denver. SIA, which stands for SnowSports Industries America, is a convention where all the big name brands in the skiing and snowboarding industry gather in one place to show off all of their new gear. The event is not open to the public and is mainly attended by people who work in the industry, especially representatives from ski and snowboard shops looking for what to sell in their shops for the next season.
I love living in one of most educated cities in the nation. Last night I had the distinct pleasure of attending a public lecture for my Astronomy Class, with the guest speaker Dr. Daniel Baker the director of LASP (The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics). His talk focused on how our magnetosphere interacts with space weather using his data from his two observation satellites he help design and sent into the Van Allen belt. I am not a Physics major but I do love space.
Last year I came in as a freshman, choosing not to bring a TV or game system because I assumed that enough other people in the dorms would bring them. Well, I was correct. There were plenty of TV's and video games to go around. I got really good at FIFA, and to my pleasant surprise, Super Smash Bros.
While most people might disagree, I absolutely love it when it rains in Boulder. Because Boulder gets over 300 days of sun a year, it's kind of like a special treat when you have a rainy day. And tonight is no exception! All I want to do is curl up in bed with a blanket and some tea and watch a movie! But, unfortunately, that is not a life I can afford to live right now! Too much work to do! But I really don't mind, since I like all of the classes I'm taking this semester...which we've already been in for a month! Incredible!
Back again! This past week just flew by, and now its crunch time. I’m currently working on creating a literary unit of study for first graders. I’m supposed to be working with my group right now, but I’m distracted J We are currently sitting in the University Memorial Center, slaving over the...
