Final Finals

Thursday, December 13, 2012

In the past, my blog posts around finals definitely have note a panic in them. I'm frantic for a solid week as I ingest facts, numbers, data, theory. I'm freaking out as I churn out final research papers while trying to squeeze my extra credit assignments in. But this year, with finals broaching, that sense of urgency and panic has been replaced with a cool, collected focus. I make a list of things to get done, and then I do it. I'm currently getting ahead on some last-minute assignments instead of putting them off until four hours before the final.

Skies

Thursday, November 29, 2012

The late November Boulder sky has been something to marvel at lately. The early mornings and setting sun of the evenings stretch across the sky, an expansive canvas of pinks, oranges, and yellows bathing in the last remnents of the sun. The clouds, spilling out from the tips of the Flatirons, soak in the warm hues of dusk, coating the sky in a rich, velvety fabric that you could seemingly reach out and touch. A few evenings (and one Godforesaken early morning) this past week, I witnessed the artistry of Mother Nature when riding my bike or walking home from class.

Quintessential

Thursday, November 15, 2012

 

It all started when *Ted moved out last summer. Ted was living with my guy friends, whose house we always, somehow, ended up hanging out at. When Ted initially moved in in May, he brought with him a nice microwave, a table, and a set of chairs. During the course of the year, those poor chairs and that pitiful table received all the abuses that accompany college living. Ted left after he graduated in May, assuring the guys that they could keep his table and chairs until he needed them again in October.

Music Scene of Boulder/Denver

Thursday, September 27, 2012

 

Tonight is the night I've been waiting for since I was fourteen and first discovered the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Tonight, they're finally coming to Denver, and, unbelievabley, I have a ticket! The anticipation has been building since I first purchased the tickets in December. Tonight, my friends and I will head down to Denver to catch their show at the Pepsi Center, and I'm sure it's going to be a blast. That's one of the things I've come to love so much about living in Denver/Boulder- there are so many concert venues and they are so accessible!

Work Hard, Play Hard

Thursday, September 20, 2012

The title of this blog exemplifies my philosophy as a CU student. I work my butt off, and then I blow off a lot of steam. Somewhere in there, I find time to sleep- or I just overcompensate with copious amounts of coffee. This, however, isn't just my personal philosophy at CU, but I think it's pretty much everyone's. As your time in college ticks on, you gradually take on more and more responsibilites. You make more and more friends. You learn about different things to do in Boulder and in Colorado, and the idea of not being able to somehow do them all isn't acceptable.
