The weather this past week certainly qualified as a blizzard here in Colorado! I scraped my car five times on last Wednesday alone. Young Life College at CU was supposed to go down to the Rockies game (a 30 minute bus ride away!) but the piles of snow cancelled the game and our trip. So instead, we put on a Coffee House event at one of our houses and invited everyone over for warm drinks and good treats. I manned the Keurig machine while 55 of our closest friends crammed into a two-bedroom apartment - bet you've never heard of a coffee party before!
I have realized my blog has become very food centered this semester as I've explored the variety of restaurants scattered throughout Boulder. Boulder was voted one of the "Foodiest" cities in the US recently, so naturally there are lots of places to try!
I went to The Cup on Pearl to meet with a friend for coffee last Tuesday on my day off. The Cup is a cute, local coffee shop that has a unique and wide variety of coffee options, including espresso and ice cream in the same cup - something I will have to try this summer!
Spring Break 2013 was one to remember! After a bit of car trouble, I spent 30 hours traveling to San Clemente, California with 15 of my fellow Lady Leaders from Young Life in Boulder. But 30 hour in a car means 30 hours of memories, so it was totally worth it! Once we got there, we spent every morning in the sun, followed by running, tanning, and surfing at the beach. Surfing was one of the most fun experiences of my life - I love any opportunity to spend time in water!
This week I spent as much time as I could to finish up work for the week before spring break. Lots of my friends from other schools will be home this week for break, so I wanted to have my ski days open so I could go up with them for a couple more runs before the season comes to a close! Also, for spring break, I'm going to California with Young Life leader ladies for some relaxation, so i want the week to be free of papers or assignments looming over me!
This week I received some exciting news - I was accepted into CU'S School of Education! So now I can take classes towards getting that licensure!
Last week was a bit of a blur, but in a good way. Copper Mountain had a foot of new snow when my friends and I went so we played around in 30 degree sunshine for the day - I still laugh whenever my friend says "most people are in class right now" because it's true, yet we are getting to spend time on the mountain. LOVE variable scheduling in college!
Last weekend, I went to Aspen with a giant group from The Annex ministry here in Boulder. We stayed overnight in Aspen High School's gym and skied during the day! I had never skied at Aspen before, but I was totally impressed! They had a foot of new snow in the past three days - the mogul runs did not even have packed moguls, you could completely shred through them! And for some reason, my friends and I were the only people on the runs we had found for most of the day - I promise I'm not complaining about that! They were by far some of the best skiing conditions I've ever experienced.
In my Acting for Nonmajors class this week, we were asked to prepare our monologues for coaching. This means we brought in the monologue we had been working on for a five minute one-on-one segment with our teacher. She helped me deicde more of the physical aspects of my monologue - where I should stand, look, move my arms, etc. I really enjoy the exercises we get to do in the class to express ourselves and find more of the actions that we are the best at! Someday I really might want to pursue a bit of acting outside of my usual Young Life skits on Wednesday nights.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, this will be my last post! I'm graduating next Friday, and I can't believe it. I found out recently that I'm graduating both With Distinction from the University, and summa cum laude from my honors thesis. I am really happy and beyond proud of myself! Although I'm...
