Spring Break Build Up... To travel or not to travel?

Friday, April 27, 2012

 

A few days before Spring Break, the anticipation regarding my plans was getting unbearable. Either I was going to be taking a trip to Costa Rica with my family—enjoying the sun, checking out the rain forest, seeing wildlife and learning to surf—or getting surgery on my fractured wrist. I was definitely hoping for the first option since, as my last spring break ever, I really wanted to spend some quality time with my mom and my sister.

Greek Week

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

This past week was Greek Week for sororities and fraternities. Each sorority is paired up with one or two fraternities and compete in different competitions throughout the week. This years theme, decided by the panhellenic board, was tv channels. The different themes were themes such as entertainment television, tv land classics, and nickoledon tv shows. My team's theme was animal planet so we had our competitions revolving around things to do with animals.

Words With Friends and Myself.

Monday, April 23, 2012

Random  issues that have come up with friends and acquantances (and my own self) over the past few months:

1. 'O' is a letter and '0' is a number. It is ridiculous that we put 'O' in place of zero. How does F-U-N-M-I-L-A-Y-Zero sound?

2. Song of the year: Gift of Acceptance by Idan Raichel and India Arie.

"We can debate till the end of time who's wrong and who si right

Or I can honor your choices and you can honor mine..."

Hey everyone! Hope you're all handling the college decision process a lot better than I'm handling midterms and the lead-in to finals.

First Camping Trip

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Last weekend we had some crazy weather here in Boulder. It was raining and stormy and cold, something we haven't experienced in months. So of course, my friends and I decided to go camping! Now let me tell you, I have never been truly camping before- the closest I've ever gotten was sleeping in a tent next to a house. So I was very excited for my frist real camping.

Favorite Classes of Freshman Year

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

As my first year of college is quickly coming to a close, I decided to let you know what my favorite classes that I took this year were. Being a freshman, it isn't easy knowing what types of classes you will be the most comfortable in or what subjects you will be interested in. My main tip is to just try out some classes to see if you like them. This is something to do especially if you are open-option like me. I took a political science class to see if I would be interested in that as my major.

When in Rome

Monday, April 16, 2012

Well, I'm finally back in Italy! I have to say, it's really strange, but it feels good to be back. I have been traveling to Rome since I was 11, and I also lived in a city north of Rome called Viterbo my entire junior year of high school. I've been back a couple of times since my junior year, and each time it gets weirder and weirder, mostly because all of my friends are still 15 and 16 in my head. But obviously we have all grown up, some are in university, and others are working. But we're still all the same group of friends, which is awesome as always!
