Spring Break

Tuesday, April 3, 2012

This past week was spring break! I was lucky enough to get to take a vacation in Mexico with my family and our family friends. We had so much fun taking a break from school work and after a week of midterms, it was well deserved. We started the week off with a visit to my hometown and a trip to San Francisco. My Big from Kappa was coming with us and wanted to ride a Cable Car and see the Golden Gate Bridge and although it was pouring rain, we made the best of it. After 2 days in rainy California, we got right back on a plane and landed in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Mi Abuela Española

Friday, March 30, 2012

I will be the first to admit that I do not have the best relationship with my grandparents. Don't get me wrong, it's not like I don't like them. They just live really far away (some in New Hampshire, some in Washington D.C., some in New Mexico...I have a lot of grandparents), so it's really hard to talk to them on a regular basis. But now that I'm living here in Spain in a host family with a grandmother, I have gotten to see what it's like to have a relationship with someone who had such a different experience growing up.

Differences between America and Spain, Part 1

Friday, March 23, 2012

I know that everyone has heard the obvious differences between Spain and the US numerous times, via word of mouth and the news. But I'm not going to tell you the obvious ones, because that would be no fun. So without further ado, here are some of the major differences I've noticed so far.

Spring Break Finally!

Friday, March 23, 2012

I made it! We finally got to spring break! Boulder's beginning to empty out as students head out to their vacation spots. For me, I'm just going home for the break to relax in Texas, but I'll still be joining the throngs on the AB Skyride bus from Boulder to DIA. Wish me luck, and everyone else have a good week in class or at work while I'm on break!

Break out the flip flops

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Spring crept around the corner a bit early in Boulder last week—as evidenced by this slightly late blog post. I, along with practically every other student at CU, became infected with spring fever as the warm Colorado sun beckoned Boulder to enjoy its rays. People donned shorts and flip-flops, and breaks between classes were spent napping on the quad.

Spring BREAK

Thursday, March 22, 2012

About two weeks ago, I broke my left wrist snowboarding. The inconvenience of showering with a bag over your arm aside, the worst part is that my family and I had planned to go to Costa Rica for break—it was sort of a “last hurrah” vacation since my sister’s break and mine aligned.

Spring Has Sprung

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Today marks the first day of spring, although it has been feeling a lot like spring for the past two weeks here in Boulder. The weather has been extremely warm for the past two weeks and it has made it impossible to do anything except play outside. Everyday people have been spending every waking moment outside on Farrand Field playing frisbee, slack lining, and even tanning. Between every class, I have gone and sat out on Farrand and just simply soaked up the sun.

Denver Adventures and St. Patrick's Day`

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I have had quite an eventful week. I will start by tell you about last Tuesday when I went to Denver with my best friend, Kelsey. The purpose for our trip was to see Pickwick, an indie-soul band that we love, in concert. When we got there we were surprised to find the venue fairly empty and were able to get in the front row. They put on an amazing show- better than I even imagined. We even got a shout out from the band while they were on stage when we told them we were from Tacoma!

St. Pattys and Country Concerts

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

 

Happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend! The past two days have been full of catching up with friends who are abroad in Europe and were fortunate enough to go to Ireland for the day! While of course it was still incredibly fun here in Boulder, Ireland seems unreal. Although I do love the education program here at CU, the only downfall is that the classes are semester specific and I’m unable to go abroad without staying at school for another semester. I’ve attached a link to my favorite blog that I’ve been following, which is the blog of my three wonderful friends in Rome.
