Finals Study Tips

Friday, December 7, 2012


Hi All, with finals looming ominously overhead I thought that I would write this week’s blogs with some of my best study tips. I have gleaned most of these from professors and others and they have worked really well for me, and I hope they will for you too.

Wrapping Up

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Today I completed my second to last day of the week before the week before finals! So basically, I still have a week before finals start, which is fine by me - more time to prepare! The end of the semester projects start to wrap up around this time, so I've had a good amount of time to relax and do fun things before the real stress of studying kicks in!

It's the Holiday Season!

Thursday, December 6, 2012

It's the most wonderful time of the year! As the holidays are fastly approaching, there is holiday spirit in the air. Everywhere you look in Boulder, there is something special to put you in the holiday mood. All of the shopping centers are decorated with strings of lights, wreaths, and garland. It just puts everyone in a great mood as they walk around in the cold weather, or as of right now, 70 degree weather. This is my favorite time of the year because everyone is smiling and laughing everywhere you look.

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!

Thursday, December 6, 2012

...sort of! This week has been a lot of fun though, and it's acting kind of like the calm before the storm that is Finals Week. A lof of alumnae from my sorority, Delta Delta Delta, are back in town for both the Pine Party, which is our annual holiday party, and our Formal, which is tonight! The Pine Party is always so much fun, and probably one of my favorite events of the year. All of the alumnae bring their kids, or even grandkids, and we decorate cookies, make gingerbread houses, and decorate the Christmas tree that we have in our living room.

Very Busy Weekend

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Last weekend was packed with fun events and great memories with my best friends. On Friday night, my friends and I went to the Grizzly Rose for the Chris Cagle concert.The Grizzly Rose is a linedancing club in Denver. My friends and I got together a bus to take us down there and we had so much fun blasting country music and dancing all the way to the concert. When we got there, the place was packed with people. On normal nights, the Grizzly Rose plays country music and everybody line dances together.

Semester Wrapping Up

Tuesday, December 4, 2012


Every year the return from Thanksgiving is accompanied by a wrapping up of school and extra-curricular activities. Projects come to a (stressful) close, banquets are held, and awards given.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Sunday, December 2, 2012


It's the most wonderful time of the year!...well, almost. 

As Christmas lights go up, and holiday banquets and celebrations commence, classes are wrapping up and finals are quickly approaching.  Yes, the dreaded finals week--the week where sleep takes a back seat and coffee becomes as important as air. But, you know, it doesn’t have to be as stressful as some might make it seem. You see, it’s all about balance.

Before the Home Stretch

Saturday, December 1, 2012

I always feel like the week after a break is (relatively) stress free because I did all my work to catch up over break! But that doesn't mean final tests and projects aren't keeping their distance from me - we have two weeks until finals!

Thanksgiving Break

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Last week was Thanksgiving Break and I was lucky enough to get to go home. I'm from California, so I flew home on Friday night with my sister and about half of my high school. I was so excited to have a break from school for a little while and just relax for a whole week. When we got home, we ate a really good dinner and just hung out with the whole family. It was so nice to all be together again. The next day, we watched as Buffs football. It was pouring in my hometown and we couldn't help but think that we should've stayed in Boulder as the football game showed a warm and sunny day.
