Semester at Sea

Thursday, October 2, 2014

Last semester, I left Boulder for fourth months and studied abroad. I chose the program Semester at Sea. In this program, I lived on a ship named the MV Explorer with about 500 students from universities around the world. While 90% of the students were from America, we had many students from around the world on board with us. While we were on the ship, we took classes and tests that I got credit from here at CU Boulder. My classes that I took were Religions of the World, Marriage and Family, Revolution Through Music, and Travel Writing.

Broadcast Production

Friday, September 19, 2014

I get asked what my major is all of the time. No one really knows what I do for my major and even my best friends just say "aren't you communications or journalism or something like that?" And technically, yes, that's true, but it's much more specfic and interesting than just that. When I was in high school, I always enjoyed making videos. Whether that was filming something for school events or making random videos with my friends.

Sorority Recruitment

Friday, September 12, 2014

This past week was my last sorority recruitment. After the 4th time doing this, the seniors have gotten to know the system really well. The week starts out with first datebook. On this day, the girls that are going through rush attend a "date party" at all nine of the houses. These parties are only about thirty minutes and show a quick peek of what each house's personality is like. Every house does their own entertainment at the end of each party. Some houses show a slideshow or sing songs, which always ends with a loud chant of each house's name.

My First House

Friday, September 5, 2014

For the past three years, I have lived in a dorm style setting. Freshman year, I lived in Libby Hall and Sophomore and Junior year, I lived in my sorority house. Now, as a senior, I finally have my first house. I have been excited about the idea of having my own house on the hill since I was a freshman. I couldn't wait to cook for myself and have my own room that I didn't have to share. I am now finally here and it is a lot harder than I thought.

Finals Week

Saturday, December 14, 2013

Today marks the first day of Finals. For the past week, it's been nothing but studying, reading, and preparing for today. For people like me, the hardest part is over. Last week was basically my finals week and this week is just a coast to the end of the semester. This semester, a lot of my teachers decided to do final presentations, projects, and papers instead of finals. I like this a lot better, because it something concrete that you can finish and be done with. Once you are done with a paper or project, you just have to wait to turn it in.

Thanksgiving Break

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Last week was Thanksgiving break! The time to go home, relax, and catch up on lots of movies and tv shows, maybe that's just me. I left Boulder when it was snowing and 12 degrees and headed for warm California. When I got home, I was slightly freaked out by how quiet it is. Even though it may seem weird, you definitely get used to living in a house full of 85 girls. I got to spend lots of time with my family and friends from home and got my fix of In N Out that I was missing from Boulder. This break, I didn't have to worry about homework which I was very thankful for!

The Internship

Sunday, November 24, 2013

This semester, I decided to get an internship! When I made my schedule last year, I noticed that I only had one class on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I thought that I could either waste my time by starting a new series on Netflix or do something productive with my time.  I got an email from my sorority over Summer break from a former member who was working at a company in Louisville who was looking for some interns. I decided that this would be a good way to use my time. I went and interviewed and got the internship when I got back to Colorado for the school year.

Pumpkin Patch

Sunday, October 27, 2013

Last Sunday, my sorority went on a sisterhood to Anderson Farms in Erie, Colorado. Anderson Farms is a huge pumpkin patch with two corn mazes, animals, games, and of course, a pumpkin patch. We went in the morning with every member of my sorority. It almost felt like a field trip with all of my best friends. We got there and met up in a big group as our president handed out tickets. We all ran into the pumpkin patch like little kids, getting so excited about everything that we saw. We immediately went towards the animals and got to pet a baby goat.
