One Week Till Finals!

Sunday, December 8, 2013

Hello and happy Sunday! This past week has been pretty busy, but thankfully not too busy. It was very easy getting back into the swing of things after coming back from thanksgiving break. There were definitely times this past week when I wished my mom was here to make me a nice home cooked meal after attending class in -7 degree weather, but I made it through. As I said in my last post, the weather this past week (2nd-7th), has been brutally cold.

Let the Countdown Begin!!

Sunday, December 1, 2013

Happy Sunday! My Thanksgiving break was amazing! Even though I had a little bit of work to do, I had plenty of time to relax and prepare for going back to school. There isn’t only about 2 and a half weeks left of school until winter break. I consider this time to be the most stressful for a couple different reasons. The first reason is that finals are rapidly approaching… and this can be scary. I have never been the best test taker… so I start studying for finals very early.

Home Sweet Home!

Sunday, November 24, 2013

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and are as excited as I am for the upcoming holiday! Traveling home ended up being a little more crazy then I was initially planning. I woke up on Thursday morning (the morning I was going to fly home), to freezing temperatures and snow! I always check online to make sure my flight is still scheduled. Unfortunately… it was delayed! I started out only being delayed about 25 minutes… and then slowly the delay time increased. By the end, it was delayed a total of about 2.5 hours.

Thanksgiving Break: The Journey to The Airport

Sunday, November 17, 2013

Happy Sunday everyone! I know you all must be getting excited that the holidays are just right around the corner! Being that I am a senior, some of my classes are not scheduled for next week (or we are supposed to do independent work). This means…. I get to go home for thanksgiving break early!!! Whoohoo! I am so excited because since I have been at CU, I have never had an extra 2-3 days of thanksgiving break. I definitely need to start packing! Sometimes (unintentionally), I leave packing to the last minute and always seem to forget something.

It's Ski Season!!

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Hello Everyone! Can you believe its already November?! Time flies here at college! I had a bunch of midterms and papers due this past week. I also started a major group project that involves research and observation. Thankfully, this upcoming week is going to be an easy one! Yesterday (Saturday), I went up snowboarding!! One of reasons I decided to attend CU Boulder was due to the location. Being just a short drive away from amazing ski resorts is awesome. Back home in California, I had to drive about 4 ½ hours to get up to the mountains, so driving 1 ½ to 2 hours seems like nothing!

Halloween: Ghouls, Goblins, and Ghosts.... and a Ninja!

Sunday, November 3, 2013

This week has been a blast! Even though Thanksgiving and Christmas are my two favorite holidays since its time to spend with family, Halloween is one of the best holidays to celebrate here at CU Boulder. Almost everyone dresses up in some sort of costume over multiple days! Since Halloween fell on a Thursday this year, CU students and Boulder celebrates Halloween Thursday-Saturday. When I was walking around campus on the Thursday (Halloween), there were tons of students dressed up in scary, funny, and just weird costumes!

Homesick No More: Mom Visits for the Weekend!

Sunday, October 20, 2013

Happy Sunday Everyone! Time has just been flying by! It is crazy to think that Halloween, and Thanksgiving Break are right around the corner! I had two midterms and two major papers due this past week. I was really motivated and focused on completing everything because I knew that by the end of the week, I would get to see my mom! She flew in this past Thursday to visit me! I was so excited because I hadn’t seen her in a while and missed her a lot! My family is from California, so the flight from California to Colorado is a little over two hours (Which isn’t long at all)!

First Snowfall of the School Year!

Sunday, October 6, 2013

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekends! I am in a great mood this weekend because I spent about 6 hours on campus yesterday getting a bunch of my school work done! Before my 6 hour work session, I went onto the hill and got two awesome tasting waffles. It is called Waffle Brothers! If you come visit CU, it is a must try! Since I got a lot of my work done yesterday, today I get to relax and just chill out. I really want to show all of you this task list application on my computer.

Fall in Boulder: Leaves are Changing and Midterms are Right Around the Corner

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Hey everyone! I hope you all have been enjoying the last few days of September! The weather here has been absolutely amazing! I love that Boulder has all four seasons yet we still have over 300 days of sunshine a year! I would have to say that Fall and Winter are my two favorite seasons here in Boulder. The way the leaves change in the fall here is absolutely breathtaking. Every day that I walk on campus, I take a bunch of photos and then send them to my parents! Since Fall officially started a week ago, I can feel a change in the air!
