Preparing for Graduation

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

With the school year winding down and final projects being turned in, it's finally that time that I have been dreading for the past four years. I remember packing up my dorm room freshman year on the verge of tears because I didn't want to leave my roommate and my friends. I knew that I would never be in that room again (even though I was wrong because I knew the girl who had it the next year). And on top of that, the minute that I was done moving myself out, I had to walk over to my sister's graduation.

Everyone Should Study Abroad

Monday, April 27, 2015

Spring and fall semesters are very different. In the fall, you get to attend football games, enjoy the changing leaves, and celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now that it's spring semester, I'm starting to realize that I have been doing a ton of different things than I have done in the past two years. It's been a long time since I have gotten to have a Greek Week, see the tulips down on Pearl Street, or even have a Spring Break. This is because I studied abroad last spring semester and haven't had a Boulder Spring since sophomore year.

Greek Week

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Last week was my last ever Greek Week. Greek Week is a all-Greek event where sororities and fraternities get randomly paired up to compete against each other. While I was abroad, my sorority won Greek Week so we definitely had a target on our back this year. The pressure was on to do well and try to win it again two years in a row. Teams get points in Greek Week by number events that you win or place in and how many participants show up at the events. This encourages a ton of people to come to the events all week and show their support for their team.

Things I Would Tell My Freshman Self

Saturday, April 18, 2015

Move-in day freshman year in Libby Hall.

 

Last night, my roommates and I were reflecting on our past four years at CU. My roommate, Kristen, said something that made me think. She said, "I wish that we had as much confidence freshman year as we do now." This made me think, what would I tell myself if I could back to freshman year?

1. Be confident.

Farmers Market

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Last week, the Boulder Farmers Market came back to town! The Farmers Market is just a few blocks down from my house on 13th and Arapahoe, so on Saturday morning my roommates, Kristen, Melissa, and I walked down. The Farmers Market takes place every Saturday from now until November from 8 AM to 2 PM. Local merchants come to sell food, plants, and much more. Stands include crepes, smoothies powered by bikes, and of course fruits and vegetables. The Boulder Farmers Market is a great place for the local community to come down and enjoy great food, music, and company.

Easter

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Easter is a holiday that was always big in my family when we were little. We would dye eggs, go to brunch, and eat a lot of chocolate. But since, at least for me, the Easter egg hunts ended a long time ago, we had to come up with a new tradition that would fit in with having kids in different states. Every Easter, my family comes to Boulder to celebrate. My mom always loves the tulips that bloom on the Pearl Street Mall so she loves this excuse to come here in the Sping. This year, my parents and one of my sisters came out to Boulder.

Day Adventure Time!

Monday, March 30, 2015

Yesterday was one of my roommate's 22nd birthdays. After we all went out to breakfast to get bagels, she decided that she really wanted to go to the mountains for the day. Since Vail and Breckenridge are a little far for just a day trip, we decided to take a little day adventure to Estes Park. Estes is about an hour away from here and is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes you will ever see. After blasting Taylor Swift in the car for an hour and having a minor freak out that our oil was getting way too low to be driving in the mountains, we finally got to Estes.

If You Don't Like the Weather, Turn Around

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Last week, Boulder was hit with 7 days of snow. Going anywhere was almost impossible as the roads were icy and snow was piling up. My roommates and I took up the activity of hanging out in our basement and watching movies and catching up on TV shows. I had to layer up so much every time I went outside because otherwise I would complete freeze on my walk to class. Walking through campus reminded me of living in a snow globe. It was absolutely beautiful, but also I was starting to get a little sick of winter.

Mom's Weekend

Monday, March 2, 2015

This past weekend was my last mom's weekend for my sorority. For mom's weekend, the event chair in my sorority plans fun acitivities to do for everybody. But since this was our last mom's weekend, my close group of friends and I wanted to spend the weekend with just each other and our moms. So we planned our own events since we have done them at the sorority house every year. (Although this year's Canvas and Mocktails event and brunch was really tempting). One of my roommates, Laura, wanted to plan a fun dinner with some of the seniors and our moms. We all met up at the St.

Study Abroad Reunions

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

When I came back from abroad, I missed traveling to places every few days, getting to take classes that only pertained to the places that we were going, but most of all I missed my friends that I made. It was weird from going to hanging out with these people to every single day, to not knowing when we would see each other again. When we got off of the ship, we immediately started planning our trips with each other so that we wouldn't have to be apart for long.
