The Humdrum

Monday, January 30, 2012

Sometimes, you seak the hum drum. You yearn for a daily routine, a solid schedule that becomes so consistent you could navegate between classes, work, and school with your eyes closed. It allows you to make plans far in advance, to allot time to get your homework done so you can go out with your friends all weekend. Your life syncs with a calender, with a clock. It ticks as you go; it's simple.

Have You Ever Graced Front Page?

Friday, January 27, 2012

Hello,

I cannot believe that I did not mention this all this while. Last year, I won a contest which placed the winning entry on the front page of the freshman level writing textbook, Knowing Words.

Well, since the photograph featured my face, there I am on the cover.

It is interesting to have people around campus tell me that they saw my face on their textbook.

Until the World "Ends"...

Sunday, January 22, 2012

While there are many not-very-pleasant aspects of being a student, one thing is great:

New beginnings.

And students are entitled to one every semester.

This is a great year for all those who will be graduating, including myself, and I would like to finish this race much better than I started it.

So far, the semester is great, I am already getting used to my studying outlines and I am very well staying on top of things. This is the best time to start studying - it makes the difference between an A and an A-.

New year, new semester...

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Howdy everyone! 

I feel like my last blog post was ages ago. The last thing I wrote about was making gift baskets for friends and family... and Christmas music! That has almost been a month ago... WOW. 

A lot has happened since then!

Winter Break/Return to School

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Hey everyone! 

It's been a long and restful break for me, but school has started, and I'm back in the game. I got to spend all of the break back home in Texas, which was very nice, but I did miss the awesome snowfall we had in Boulder. While I had a ton of downtime at home, I did get out and do some cool things.

DONE!

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

After some delirous nights, nerve wracking tests, and a multitude of term papers, I can finally say that I'm done with this semester! What a weight off my chest! I actually took a nap yesterday after my tests were over; that's an anomoly in my life. Now as I sit here with a piping hot cup of coffee at 8:15 with no actual classes to attend, I have to wonder... why am I up this early? I think my body has adrenaline coursing through my veins, urging me to keep going.

Little Known Secrets in StudyVille, Boulder

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

 

Hate studying in the main Norlin library? Yeah, me too. So, I've compiled a list of relatively unknown places on campus where I've studied at one point or the other.

1. Student Group Office:

If you are an officer of a student group registered on campus and your group has an office in the UMC, you are entitled to a key card that grants you access into the office while the UMC is open. Your SOFO signers should be able to arrange this key card for you. Student group offices are quiet and spacey and have limited access. 

2. CMA @ C4C:

The Story of $10,000

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Well, not in cash.

This semester, I took GEOG 3053 - Cartography 1 with the Geography department. Initially, I was not very keen on taking this class but seeing that it is a requirement for my Geography degree, I had no choice. Once I saw that the class was worth 4 credits and had weekly labs lasting 3 hours, I became even more expectant of a time-demanding syllabus.
