Casa Bonita

Thursday, March 7, 2013

I didn't have much to write about this week, but I was searching through my old photos and I came across an awesome picture that prompted this week's blog.

On The Road

Friday, March 1, 2013

I am coming to you live from Boise, Idaho (which, as a side thought, is a very nice city).

Ralphie

Friday, February 22, 2013

We are very proud of our mascot here at CU. Ralphie is our 1,000 pound female Buffalo. We can't have a male Buff because the males are literally too big and mean, thus posing a potential safety hazard. That said, Ralphie is still a great tradition for us.

Boulder Public Art

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

In case you haven't noticed by now, I really love Boulder. 

 

One of my favorite aspects is all the public art we have around this city. I have always been a huge proponent of public art, and as some of my friends can attest to, I used to build pieces of public art at parties. I think things like the Bean in Chicago, or the "Love" sculpture in Philadelphia can add a lot of character to a city, and Boulder does have it's fair share, although I do wish that some were displayed more prominently.

The Lost Glory of N64

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Last year I came in as a freshman, choosing not to bring a TV or game system because I assumed that enough other people in the dorms would bring them. Well, I was correct. There were plenty of TV's and video games to go around. I got really good at FIFA, and to my pleasant surprise, Super Smash Bros.

In the Fall of 2013, I will be spending a semester in Istanbul Turkey. Needless to say I can't wait.

Team Deep Threat

Saturday, January 26, 2013

 

There are certain things that deserve their own folklore, and there are certain things that do not. My buddies and I are members of an indoor soccer team known as Team Deep Threat. Team Deep Threat is something that is undeserving of lore.

Football

Sunday, January 20, 2013

My roommates and I are big football fans, as we are men. Since we are all Colorado natives, so we are all passionate Broncos fans, and Peyton Manning is our new favorite player. Despite the tragic loss last week, we are still very proud of our Donkeys (as they have been affectionately nicknamed) and are already holding our breath for the start of next season.

Winter Break in Baton Rouge

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

 

Ah the Winter Break. It really is the best part of the school year. Most students will go home and spend time with their families before returning for the Spring semester. This year, we had a shorter than normal break, which drew some groans from other students, but nonetheless, we had about a month off to unwind. Many students also take this opportunity to make headway on their ski passes, and almost everyone who skis uses break as an opportunity to get a few days in.

Never Trust the Weatherman

Never Trust the Weather Man

 

Growing up in Boulder, it didn’t take me long to realize to never trust the weatherman. Ever. As a result of Boulder’s unique geographic location with the mountains and everything weather patterns are especially unpredictable, so the weatherman really does have an unenviable job to begin with.
