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!

Marathon time!

Saturday, February 18, 2012

Hey everyone! 

So just like fellow blogger Erika, I signed up to run a marathon this week! The race takes place in October and is considered a "half marathon" or 13.1 miles. I am super excited about it!! It's the Boulder Marathon.

Exploring The Flatirons

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

This weekend was awesome! The weather was great-- sunny per usual with snow on the ground. A friend and I decided to do some exploring of the Flatirons which we see everyday and love to hike in. We decided, this time, to start not at our usual Chataqua (the base for many of the hiking trails frequented by CU Boulder students and Boulderites alike) but to drive up Flagstaff Road and find a trail head a bit further up. We found one that looked inviting and were amazed with how beautiful the view was after every turn in the trail.

Happy Valentine's Day

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

I've never really liked Valentine's Day very much, yes I know this makes me sound like a cynical person, but it just isn't my favorite holiday. My perspective was changed a little bit with help from my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and CU-Boulder. Last night, I walked to Kappa for dinner and meeting like every Monday night. After dinner, the chef walked out and announced that there would be no dessert because he figured no one would eat it with Spring Break so close around the corner. With many yells of anger, he brought out a few bowls of grapes hoping that this would quiet us down.

So this week on my blog, I thought I’d let you all in on a little hobby of mine. Flying planes. By myself.

#10 of 101 Things to do Before You Graduate - [Get Published] - Patricia Hudak and Jullien Gordon

1. Browsing through the list of 101 things, there are more than a few that I've already done. So, we'll start with those. In my sophmore year, I wrote an article which the Colorado Daily featured. It was a thrill to have people recognize me and commend the article, especially one of my professors.
