Sunday Funday

Sunday, October 14, 2012

 

Today was a day filled with Boulder and fall fun.

I started out the day by going to a pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect carving pumpkin. I found this great little patch no more than five miles from my apartment. There are so many little treasures like that in Boulder….and you don’t even have to travel very far.

This pumpkin patch had hay rides, a corn maze, kittens, goats, and a variety of pumpkins to choose from.

Much to Say About Nothing

Sunday, September 30, 2012

 

This is how I feel today.

Usually, Sundays are reserved for an adventure around Boulder with my boyfriend, a Sunday Funday. Alas, midterm season has arrived like a tornado of essays, blue books, and study sheets.

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!

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!

Back to School

Saturday, August 25, 2012

 

Here I am on the eve of the last day of summer break. On Monday morning, my carefree summer days will be replaced by a crazy schedule filled with class, work, and extracurricular. While that may not sound appealing, I am extremely excited to get back into the swing of life as a CU student.

This year, I am a senior, which means I will soon say goodbye to Boulder and life as a buff.  Say it isn’t so! This realization is what brought me to create a “Boulder Bucket List.”

1.       Meet Ralphie.

2.       Tube down Boulder Creek.

By now, you may have realized that school is expensive- tuition, books, food, and all of the little odds and ends that come with it. Luckily, there is a way to afford all of this…sort of. By getting a job!

On your mycuinfo page you will find a plethora of job openings under a plethora of categories. From on campus to off campus, waitressing or a desk job- you name it and it’s there!

Helpful Hints

Sunday, August 12, 2012

 

As the fall semester nears closer, I find myself in a mix of emotions. In just a few days I will officially be a senior in college! As crazy as it may sound, I’m excited to leave the summer behind and start all of the activities that come with the new semester…even though I’m a little sad that it means that I’m one step closer to leaving CU.

Most of you probably aren’t entering your senior year. So, I decided to create a list of tips for incoming or transfer students. Hopefully this list helps you discover what kind of Buff you will be!
