I am still getting into the swing of school, but my heart is still at least partially in the summertime. So, since I wrote about my summer in California last week, I thought I would take a few moments to write about the part of my summer that I spent in Boulder this year.
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.
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.

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?
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.
I am infected with a spirit for travel. Last year around this time, I was pacing the streets of Salamanca, Spain, enamored with the beauty of old Europe. I travelled to several different cities-- Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Dublin, Rome-- and the more I saw, the more the desire for travel coursed...
