Well, the election is finally over. Whether you like the outcome or not, the campaigning is done. Living in Colorado, this means we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief. Colorado is an important swing state for the presidential election, and the winner of Colorado has won each of the last three presidencies.
Every year, the Daily Camera (one of Boulder’s local newspapers) holds a contest. People enter in the date they think the first snow of the year will arrive, and whoever gets the date right wins a ski trip of some kind.
I have to lift three times per week with the lacrosse team at 7:15 a.m. As a result, I am on campus before classes get going, and I am usually riding home right around the time that classes are finally starting.
Imagine 100 of your friends all gathered together on a Thursday night. Imagine all of you together at a park. Imagine all of you dressed up in costumes based on a common theme.

Oh yeah, did I mention it was in the dark.
Well school is back, which means that the energy around campus increases about 100x times from the summer (being from Boulder I took classes and still spent a good amount of time on campus over the break). For many students it also means that there needs to be a more concerted effort to stay active and fit, since school-work is now consuming a lot more time.
I don't know if you've noticed this, too, but good old Facebook has innovated the "status" feature to show you what your Facebook status said one or two years ago.
