The Evolution of the Selfie Through Time

Monday, April 28, 2014

As many of you know, the selfie has taken over the world. Thanks to snapchat, and the technological advancements in smart phones that allow us to actually turn the camera around on us, we are now able to take extremely vain images of ourselves and compose them nicely.

 

However, because of the ease of these sorts of images, adults have now caught on to the selfie craze as well. This closing of the generational gap has given me a terrific number of priceless selfies accrued on my phone over the years, and I now give you the evolution of the selfie through time.

A Big Game in the Big House

Monday, April 21, 2014

 

 

Last weekend, we finished up our 2014 regular season for lacrosse in style.

 

Sports Authority field at Mile High is the home to the Denver Broncos (and Peyton Manning), and is the largest stadium in the state of Colorado. A strange thing to think about is that Mile High, despite being a giant building of over 75,000 seats, is only really used for 8-14 days per year.

2048 - A Stupid Life Ruining Game

Monday, April 14, 2014

 

Alright, so my title here might be a little bit over dramatic.

 

There is a new game that is growing pretty rapidly in popularity on the App Store. It's called 2048, and there was a time when I was hopelessly addicted to it.

 

Basically, the game works where you get tiles of 2's and you can combine like numbers to build in powers of two's (two 2's combine to make a 4, two 4's combine to 8, etc.)

Roped In on the First Flatiron

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

 

As Spring Break wound down, and the reality of the sprint finish towards finals set in. I was sitting in my backyard with Flip wondering how we could squeeze out the final drops of our glorious week off.

A Weekend Hiatus in Moab

Thursday, April 3, 2014

 

As a lacrosse player, the concept of a week-long beach vacation for spring break is little more than a fallacy for me. Every year, the team plays games for break, and thus we spend the week grounded in Boulder when the rest of the school bails to somewhere with sandy beaches.

 

Well, for the first time since I started competitively playing lacrosse, I was given a few days of break to myself. Our coaches gave us three entire days off. When given a gift like this, the only option is to ask yourself, what is the most epic thing I can do today?

Buffs at Home

Sunday, March 2, 2014

Well, another basketball season at Coors Events Center is in the books (the season itself is still going, the Buffs are heading out to Las Vegas later this week for the Pac-12 tournament).

 

However, for the Buffs this season, there was no place like home as they finished the year 16-2 at home. While I don't mean to take credit we don't deserve, I have always felt that the C-Unit is one of the reasons for our home dominance.

An Istanbul Derby

Thursday, February 20, 2014

 

This weekend marks the second annual installment of (one of) the Istanbul Derby games. In Istanbul there are three teams: Galatasaray, Fenerbahce (Fen-air-bah-che), and Besiktas (Be-sheikh-tash). Generally, Fenerbahce represents the Asian side, Besiktas hails from the neighbor for which it is named (Istanbul’s most populous), and Galatasaray is for the rest (although they are often associated with the genteel class).

Morning Hikes

Monday, February 10, 2014

Hello all,

 

For those of you from around the country who may not have been paying as close of attention to the weather, for the past week Boulder has been freezing. For about 4 or 5 days in a row temperatures hovered in the single digits, and crossed into the negatives more than once. Now, for my warmer weather readers, don't fret. This type of weather pattern is abnormal and even through it all, we were still getting a remarkable amount of sunshine.

A Boy Named Peyton

Monday, February 3, 2014

Well, I can safely assume that everyone has at least heard about the pitiful beat down that was administered in yesterday's Super Bowl. As a Colorado native, and lifelong Bronco's fan, that was one of the most painful sporting events that I have ever watched.

Coming Home

Monday, January 27, 2014

Well, I have made it back to America. After a long, 31-hour day of travel that included 4 airports, and (remarkably) no delays or snags I got home just two short days before classes started for second semester.

 

I was fortunate and didn't suffer too terribly from jet lag, but my weekend was spent blitzing around town, seeing as many people as I could and moving into my house.
