Snow Day!

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Growing up in California, I had barely even seen snow before I came to school in Colorado. You can only imagine my excitement when I woke up to a CU Rave Alert text saying "CU campus closed today due to snow" and another text from my RA saying "snowball fight at 11 on Farrand Field!" Since I woke up well past 11, I could hear everyone from my floor screaming and running around outside. I rushed to get my winter clothes on and ran outside to join everybody on Farrand Field. My favorite part about living on campus is living right next to Farrand Field.

Life is not for Figuring Out all At Once...

Monday, February 6, 2012

I am an avid book reader. Avid.

Every page is a maze.

Just like life.

But while I realise that life is not figuring out or running on lists, I'll try to map out the last 10 months or so of university.I'll be starting a project on this blog based on the 100 things to do while in College book by Hudak and Gordon.

Let's go!

Spring (?) Semester

Monday, February 6, 2012

 

Hey Friends!

 

I’m actually writing this blog to you on my first official snow day here at CU. The last semi-snow day we had was my freshman year, when they closed campus after 1pm. What am I doing to celebrate the snow? I’m glad you asked J

Happy hour in Boulder

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

Hey there!

 

This week I thought I would name drop a few places I enjoy going to for happy hour! By happy hour, I mean GREAT food for CHEAP prices. Even if you aren't 21 yet, you can still gather a group of friends and indulge in the many happy hour deals that happen throughout the week at many places in Boulder. I have only chosen to share 3, but these are my top picks. I'm sure there are many other great deals out there.

The Dorm Life

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

We've all heard the horror stories. Living in a dorm is a scary thought. Walking up to Libby Hall on move-in day scared the living daylights out of me. I couldn't believe that I was going to have to live with someone I had never met, in a space smaller than my room at home. This was a truly terrifying thought. After meeting my roommate, Dana, I realized that it wasn't going to be so bad, it actually started to seem fun. I soon realized that living in a dorm was, in fact, fun. Everywhere I walked on that first day, there was someone there wanting to meet me.

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.
