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.

So Much Snow!

Thursday, February 9, 2012



Hey everyone! It looks like we're getting settled into spring semester here. Unfortunately, this means that midterms are approaching. I just had my first midterm in my biochemistry class, and besides a few topics I completely forgot about, I think it went ok. Besides that, everything feels pretty normal around here!

Off-campus housing

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

I always feel like I start any school related post with ... "it's that time of year." From finals to break... "it's that time of year." I'm about to do it again so bear with me! It's that time of year to start looking for housing next year! I currently live in Longmont, Colo., which is 25 minutes away from Boulder, but I am ready to live in Boulder my senior year!

Young Life

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

I don't know if any of you have heard of Young Life before, if you haven't, I'll tell you a little bit about it. It is a faith based organization that operates nationwide with the goal of reaching out to young people. It provides a fun place and community to make friends, play games, and build a relationship with God. I was involved in it all through highschool and just started coming to college Young Life at the start of this semester and have already made some of my closest friends.

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.
