Odd Jobs

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

The past couple weeks have been full of job talk for me. This past weekend, I searched high and low for jobs to start after I graduate in May. I came to accept some facts that I already knew - that my career aspirations require me to either start from the bottom of the totem pole, or to have a Masters Degree. This isn't discouraging news by any means, just means that I have to start looking for some of those entry level jobs and get more experience before I work my way up! I submitted three different job applications this past weekend.

Denver and Donuts

Monday, January 20, 2014

Hello, everybody! I hope you all got some rest over Winter Break. I spent the time trying to fit in as many of my favorite activities as possible into just three weeks. That being said, I made my way up to ski five days, spent a week on Kauai paddleboarding and snorkeling with a friend from CU (yes, going to college not only means making new friends just to have friends, but also to have free places to stay when you want to travel!), watched movies with my parents, explored Downtown Denver restaurants with my friends, and slept... a little.

Gearing Up for Finals...

Sunday, December 8, 2013

...by avoiding doing work for them! Yesterday I took a day to not focus on anything school related, rather to have as much fun as possible before the crunch time for final projects commences.

CU Basketball Season is in Full Swing!

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

CU Basketball season is in full swing! Our record currently includes only one loss, which was our first game of the season to Baylor. Tonight we have the CU vs CSU game in Fort Collins, and I think we are favored to win by quite a bit! Over my thanksgiving break, my parents and I came up for the CU vs Harvard basketball game. For the first 3 periods of the game, the Buffs were losing. But in the fourth quarter, we pulled ahead and never looked back! It was a great win for us and a great game for my parents to have come to!

Making Time for the Hunger Games

Saturday, November 23, 2013

This week, despite the amount of last-minute projects I had due before Thanksgiving break, I still made time to go see the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Young Life took 23 kids to the premiere at the 29th Street Mall movie theater! We sat in line for an hour beforehand (with 100 other college students) and filled up two entire rows of seats. We passed giant bags of leftover Halloween candy up and down the rows, eagerly eating chocolate so we wouldn't fall asleep for the next three hours!

Work Crew Weekend

Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Sometimes in the middle of the semester, we all desire a quick getaway. Young Life College at CU took a weekend trip to help work at Frontier Ranch camp in Buena Vista, Colorado last weekend. We worked in the dining hall as cooks, dishwashers, and servers for 400+ middle schoolers and their leaders coming for Snow Camp. I attached a group picture below.

Senior Halloween = Success!

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Despite how crazy busy this time of the semester has been, I still made time for celebrating Halloween. And in case you were wondering, I ended up wearing a pair of Minnie Mouse ears and a black dress for the few events I attended at which I dressed up - I wanted to dress for the occasion, but not draw too much attention to myself. I feel like senior year it's less about the costume preparation and more about pooling the resources you already have to put together a costume - we have to save that money for grad school, you know?!

Sugar-Heavy Sunday

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

Hi, everyone! This weekend was full of sugar and exploring - two of my favorite things!

One of my best friends from Texas came to visit for the weekend so we crammed as many of her favorite Boulder activities into about 48 hours as we could. Saturday morning, we went for a North Boulder stroll through the more residential part of Boulder. The trees in this area tower over the wide variety of old-timey houses and in the fall, exploring North Boulder is as beautiful as a hike up in Chataqua! The leaves are every color and make for just the most enjoyable scenery for a walk.

How to Choose a College Halloween Costume

Monday, October 21, 2013

The time has come for me to choose what my Halloween costume will be this year, and I thought to myself, really, how do we choose what costume we want to wear?! Then I also thought, what better way to share these ideas than to blog about them?

Change of Pace

Monday, October 21, 2013

This Sunday, my dad and I participated in the Rock N Roll Bike Tour of Denver! We rode 22 miles up and down the streets of Denver, running red lights and stop signs - an opportunity I may never get again, ha! The bike race had 1,000 registered participants and the running races had 10,000 half-marathoners and 3,000 full marathoners. The race started in the dark (and therefore was really cold) but as the sun rose, sunlight reflected off the buildings, making for a gorgeous morning. Usually I'm on the runner side of the race, so it was cool to change the event for once and ride my bike.
