Things I Would Tell my Freshman Self

Saturday, April 18, 2015

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.

Denver Day Trip

Thursday, February 12, 2015

I live with seven girls. There is always something going on and somebody around to talk to. For some people, this might sound like too much. But coming from a house of 86 girls, this is tame. This past weekend, for some reason, everybody was gone except for my roommate Melissa and I. We spent one of the days on our own just watching movies and ordering take out. The next morning, I woke up and realized that I shouldn't waste these unusually warm February days sitting inside.

Formal 2.0

Monday, February 2, 2015

Last semester, my sorority had our winter formal. Well, at least we were supposed to have our winter formal. Every semester, we have one formal and one date dash. Date dashes are something fun like go-karting or baseball games and they always have a fun theme. Formals are a little like a high school homecoming dance. Everybody invites a date and gets all dressed up in dresses and suits and we take buses to a special venue for a dance. Last semester, we all asked our dates, got ready, took pictures, and walked over to Kappa to get on the buses to go to the venue.

Life as an Out of Stater

Thursday, December 18, 2014

When I was applying to colleges, I didn't know exactly where I wanted to go but I did know that I wanted to get out of California. This isn't because I hate being from California but just because I knew that I needed to see what my other options could be. My freshman year roommate was also from California, which helped me to realize that I would be able to easily make friends because not everyone would know everyone.
