Boulder Public Art

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

In case you haven't noticed by now, I really love Boulder. 

 

One of my favorite aspects is all the public art we have around this city. I have always been a huge proponent of public art, and as some of my friends can attest to, I used to build pieces of public art at parties. I think things like the Bean in Chicago, or the "Love" sculpture in Philadelphia can add a lot of character to a city, and Boulder does have it's fair share, although I do wish that some were displayed more prominently.

A Little Slice of Honors Hell

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Hello All!

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.

Boulder Nightlife

Monday, February 11, 2013

 

One of the best parts of going to school in Boulder is the abundance of nightlife. There's always something cool going on around here, whether it's provided by CU-Boulder or the city in general.

Administrative Fun

Monday, February 11, 2013

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.

Bachelorette Party Sisterhood

Saturday, February 9, 2013

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.

Another Day in the Life

Saturday, February 9, 2013

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.

SIA in Denver

Friday, February 8, 2013

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.

A Starry Night

Thursday, February 7, 2013

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.

The Lost Glory of N64

Thursday, February 7, 2013

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.
