Manos Alegres!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

This past Friday I was lucky enough to go to a concert for free, which, for a lover of music like I am, is always a treat. However, it was not your normal type of concert. My host mom, Rosa, has been studying Spanish Sign Language for the past two months, and this concert, Manos Alegres (Happy Hands) was kind of like their final exam. I know what you're thinking...a concert in sign language? At first I didn't get it either, but once it started, it was really cool!

My Snaps Make Even Ramen Look Good

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I spend the majority of my little spare cash on my experiences. And that includes food. I attended a student leadership honor dinner, a conference in Oklahoma and had some time to make home cooking. So, my food potography album has new additions.

Here we go:

Breakfast(s): Home-made egg and butter sandwiches. With red and green grapes.

When Parents Come to Town

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Last week, my parents came to visit my sister and me here in Boulder. My parents are actually in Boulder a lot because this is where they met, so we have a few favorite places to eat and things to do for when they come to town. One of our favorite places to eat is a restaurant called Salt. This restaurant is located on the Pearl Street Mall and has amazing entrees. I always order some kind of fish because I don't eat that a whole lot in the dining halls, but everyone's favorite dish is the Tom's Tavern Burger. Another restaurant that we went to last week was called Oak.

Visit And Basketball

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

This past week was great because my dad came to visit!! My dad is one of my favorite people ever and it's always so much fun to have him here. We went out to a delicious dinner (at The Med on Pearl St.) and then I brought him to the CU-Boulder versus Stanford basketball game.

A Bum Knee

Friday, February 24, 2012

A few weekends ago, I went on a back country ski trip with my dad and my sister. On our hike out, my ski got trapped under a branch that had been hidden by fresh snow, causing me to awkwardly fall and sending my knee in, well, the wrong direction.

Studying in Alicante has been pretty interesting so far, but this week was by far the most challenging (school wise) yet!

Favorite Places to Eat When You're on Your Own

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Even though CU Boulder has amazing dining hall food, and no I'm not being sarcastic, it is sometimes nice to go out to eat. I have discovered some amazing restaurants here in Boulder. Since I'm a college student, it is only natural that I am on a strict budget and don't have a whole lot of money to spend on food. Since Boulder is a college town, they know how to cater to college student's needs and budgets. There are so many great restaurants in town that are low-cost but high-quality.

Impulsive Decisions

Monday, February 20, 2012

 

Have you ever done anything incredibly impulsive and unplanned? I did. Just this past weekend a few friends and I decided to road trip to see Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. Now, this was a little bit scary for me at first, because I never do anything unplanned, but we just decided to get in the car and go.  We didn’t even have a hotel booked!
