Colorado Beauty

Sunday, September 16, 2012

This past weekend I was lucky enough to go on a hike in the Rocky Mountains with my family. We started the day fairly early (while it was still cool out) and headed up Highway 7 to our favorite spot just outside of Estes Park. We parked at Wild Basin and started our adventure on the Ouzel Falls trailhead. This hike is relatively easy, traveling about 4 miles total, with the exception of one steep climb up the mountain. I recommend this hike to anyone traveling to Colorado for the first time or looking for a fun activity to do with friends or family.

Back In Business

Thursday, September 13, 2012

 

My first two weeks have been some for the books! I’m already busy with little commitments and events here and there, but I love always having something to look forward to and to do! We have already had our first two football games, but regardless of if we win or lose, I love the excited atmosphere that we Buff Fans create.

Bedroom Weight Pump

Well school is back, which means that the energy around campus increases about 100x times from the summer (being from Boulder I took classes and still spent a good amount of time on campus over the break). For many students it also means that there needs to be a more concerted effort to stay active and fit, since school-work is now consuming a lot more time.

Maybe You're Right

Monday, September 10, 2012

It all boils down to this: every test I took, every paper I wrote, every class I showed up late to. It all comes to my alleged 'developed critical thinking skills' and 'ability to communicate effectively, both orally and written.' That's right, these last four years are culminating into the scariest thing I can imagine: not going to school.

Ready. Set. Study!

Sunday, September 9, 2012

 

There are so many things to do here at CU that sometimes I forget that I’m also enrolled in classes too. With those classes comes reading, quizzes and of course tests. With class in full swing, I’m sure some of you have exam dates approaching. I know I do. Now it’s time to get to studying!

Ohhh boy!

Friday, September 7, 2012

The stress has begun! I already feel like I've been here for a month, but it's only been two weeks! I already had an essay due this past Tuesday, and I have three more due next week! Plus two quizzes next week as well. Needless to say, I guess this is why people say not to tak 21 credits! But I just had a meeting about my Honors Thesis and I'm really excited about my topic! I'm still deciding between focusing on women during Fascism, or Futuristic women.

Starting School & Staying Healthy

Friday, September 7, 2012

School has started again, which means it is back to my busy schedule! I am a senior this year completely excited (and a little nervous) that I only have this semester and spring semester left! Since I am so busy with work and school, it is important I maintain a healthy diet so I can keep up my energy and stamina to get through various tasks, not to mention I am running my first half marathon in a little over a month!

Thoughts on my Last First Day of School

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

As I am writing this, it's really sinking in... I just had my last summer as a student. Ever. Well, maybe not ever, but at least for the foreseeable future. I began my last first day of school a week ago today. With a looming December graduation date and four months of growing list of ambitious goals (apply for Teach for America, take GRE, do well in school, finish internship, get hired by internship- fingers crossed- or else look for other jobs), I looked around at the freshman on campus and felt something odd. I felt jealous! I saw them making friends in the line for the C4C dining hall.

Back in Action

Sunday, September 2, 2012

 

The first week of my senior year is in the books. This week, I met most of my teachers, sorted out most of my schedule woes, and learned that I love my walk to school.

But, between advising appointments, book buying madness, meetings and homework I was more than ready for my long Labor Day Weekend. And what a weekend it has been!
