Last Semester :(

Monday, January 28, 2013

 

Hello again, and welcome to the final (yes, I’m crying too) installment of Mike Heffler’s blog!

It is indeed my last (pending my passing of my classes) semester at CU-Boulder. How does one spend such a momentous semester, you might ask? Well, the answer is hard work mixed with hard fun. I was lucky enough to get Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays off from classes, which is unheard of for me. But, before you get too worried about me going skiing every day, remember that working hard is a hard habit to break.

Happy Holidays

Monday, December 17, 2012

 

I’m almost there!

Just three days, three final exams, and a two-hour plane ride remain between me and my return to Texas. It’s bittersweet however, because, as I’ve been trying to show all semester, life is pretty fun at CU. I’m definitely going to miss all of my fraternity brothers and other Boulder friends, but it will be nice to see my Texas friends as well. It’ll also be nice to not have to worry about how many layers to wear, as the weather is much warmer back home.

More Snow! And Finals.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

 

The semester is definitely coming to a close. Students are flocking to the library, the air is getting colder, and snow is on the ground.

Semester Wrapping Up

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

 

Every year the return from Thanksgiving is accompanied by a wrapping up of school and extra-curricular activities. Projects come to a (stressful) close, banquets are held, and awards given.

Thanksgiving Wrap-Up

Monday, November 26, 2012

 

 

Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I hope your breaks were all as good as mine was. I was able to go home for the week and spend some time with my family (and of course, my dog, Lucy, who is the real reason I like coming home). It was also nice to get a dose of warmer weather (even if only for a few days).

Intramural Victory

Sunday, November 4, 2012

 

Intramural sports are a huge part of campus life. I’ve played a few different sports at CU, but my favorite is definitely Ultimate Frisbee. Unfortunately, this session, Ultimate Frisbee filled up so fast that my friends and I couldn’t get a team in the league. We instead chose flag football, which is actually a lot of fun as well.

Halloween in Boulder

Sunday, October 28, 2012

 

Halloween is one of those holidays that doesn't obey rules. It can fall on any day of the week, and it can be celebrated on days that aren't Halloween.

Hittin' the Links

Monday, October 22, 2012

So this weekend my fraternity brothers and I decided to give in to our "fratty" urges and do what fraternity men do best: Golf.

Weekend in Vail

Monday, October 15, 2012

 

So this past weekend, I had the good luck to go up to the mountains. One of my friends’ grandparents has a condo in Vail, CO, and we got to take a small road trip up there for the weekend. I’ve been to Vail a few times during ski season, and it’s beautiful, but it is almost more gorgeous when it’s snow free. The time of year we picked was perfect because the leaves are still turning colors, and a valley full of yellow, orange, and red is breathtaking.
