Boulder Flood Update

Friday, September 27, 2013

Hi, everyone!

 

I feel as though a blog post describing my own experience with the Boulder Flooding is worth sharing so that you get a student perspective! My apartment was completely fine, but some of my friends were less fortunate. Two of them lost all of their clothes in the basement closets of their houses, but it has been so cool to see the way our community has rallied around them to let them "shop" for clothes in one anothers' closets!

A Weekend Away

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Hello, everyone!

This past weekend, Young Life College at CU took 70 students and 90 other leaders up to a camp in Winter Park for a weekend getaway in the mountains. We stopped for milkshakes at my favorite spot on the way up, then spent the rest of the weekend hiking, playing on the Big Swing, jumping in the lake, eating warm, giant cookies with ice cream, and laughing the whole time! I always feel so at peace in the mountains, so being at school in Colorado just two hours away from forestry is really a blessing!

Coffee Week

Monday, April 22, 2013

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!

New Restaurants and Weird Weather

Monday, April 15, 2013

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!

From Blizzard to Beach Time

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

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!

Counting Down to Cali!

Sunday, March 17, 2013

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!
