It is now April in Boulder, which means the glorious return of warm sunny days (in truth we always get sunny days, they just aren't always warm). This means several of my favorite activities are back:
1. Spring skiing. Vail closed this weekend which means that we get to dress like clowns and rip the final few runs of the year. Example below is my roommate Flip preparing for the final day of the season.

So, I will now begin an endeavor to share with the masses my favorite daily activities, and for those of you that know me, you will understand that there is only natural place for me to start: ice cream.
As a graduating senior, I am slowly beginning to feel the press of my impending post-grad life. One of the most stressful parts of this is the job search. Personally, I have had a reasonably successful collegiate career, and I have a small number of promising job prospects. However, that is not to say that I have allowed myself to feel too smug.
1. The Flatirons: The Flatirons are home to some of the most beautiful and popular hikes in Boulder. On a warm day, the Flatirons are a perfect hiking or climbing destination for students.
2. Red Rocks: Boulder is just 45 minutes away from Red Rocks, a beautiful outdoor amphitheater that is...
