Get Away to Get Going

Friday, March 9, 2012

Sometimes, you have weeks of school that hit you like a bus. Last week was one of those weeks for me; between two midterms and two papers, which required an inordinate amount of time spent in the library, I was feeling pretty checked out as Friday rolled around. I even tried to get a head start on some of my readings for the coming week, but all I could do was hit the "next episode" button on Netflix.

Ski Season

Friday, March 9, 2012

So one of the best parts of living in Colorado has to be ski season. With the big resorts only a 2-3 hour drive away from Boulder, how could you not learn to ski or snowboard? When I got to CU freshman year, I started to learn to snowboard. Now, 2 years and a lot of falls and bruises later, I can kind of hold my own on the mountain! I thought I'd share some pictures from my last few excursions to the mountains so you all can see what Shaun White is up against.

Granada: The City of Flamenco and Tapas

Thursday, March 8, 2012

Of all of the places I have ever been in my life, Granada has got to be one of the coolest and most original cities ever. It has some of the richest history in all of Spain, and some of the best food, if I do say so myself!

Bodily Rhythms!

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

Hello,

This past week was great! The African Students' Association participated in the Culture Shock, 2012 which attracted different cultural performances. We did our signature contemporary dance routine featuring dance steps from across the African continent.

And we came second:

Spring in Boulder

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

The past few days have been crazy!! Today, Tuesday March 6, the temperature reached around 70 degrees. Having been in some very cold months recently, it may as well have been 90. Everyone was out on whatever field they could find, you would have been hard pressed to look at any patch of grass and not see a football or frisbee flying through the air or people laying in the sun studying or chatting. I was even wearing a tank top today and got a sun burn!

Weekend with the Best Friends

Tuesday, March 6, 2012

This past weekend, my friend T.J. came to visit my friend Jacquie and me. When your friends come to visit it is a little different than when your parents come to visit because you have to spend your own money. Luckily, showing off Boulder on a budget isn't very hard. We started out the weekend breakfast to show off our amazing dining hall, the C4C. This dining hall has amazing breakfast food including omlettes and breakfast burritos. Whenever a friend comes to visit, I like to show off our dining hall and make them jealous of the food that we get to eat everyday.

Oh, the Places You'll Go

Friday, March 2, 2012

Did your parents ever sit down with a Dr. Suess book with you before bed time, watching you stumble over the letters as you phonetically sounded out the words "lorax" and "bamboozle?" Perhaps you can fondly remember your favorite story, or your first grade teacher bringing in real  green eggs and ham. Dr. Suess touched millions of children's lives, and today, on his 108th birthday, I thought it only fitting to bring a little Suess to CU.

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.
