Vote, Yoties, Vote

Elections for student body offices were held last Friday, but late last night there were still campaigners knocking on my door. That’s because today is the run-off for two offices: Treasurer and Secretary.

Hunting For Eggs On Campus

Easter may have been last Sunday, but that didn’t stop SUB (Student Union Building) Committee from hiding 480 eggs around campus. And the eggs really were all over campus. I found mine by the shrubs around Sterry, nestled behind KAIC, and in the dirt by Covell. That last egg had a few ants in it. All my other eggs had candy too, except for one that had a slip saying I’d won No Country For Old Men. Other prizes were a $50 gift certificate, headphones, other movies, a hammock and an inflatable chair. My RA Hillary won the inflatable chair and Pride and Prejudice.

Zion Spring Break Trip

For my final spring break of my undergraduate career, I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park with The College of Idaho Outdoor Program.

I love spending time in the outdoors and being able to get away from college and the constant stress of senior year. Zion was a great escape to say the least. It was amazingly beautiful, with all kinds of rock formations, arches and testing hikes.

Room Draw (aka Doomsday) Approaches

After a week of slogging through midterms, it’s spring break and I’m back at home in Boise to spend the week with my furry friends. The crazy thing about spring break is that it means six weeks have already gone by, and there’s only six left before the summer. That’s a little too fast for my taste.

On Compliments

Unicorns love compliments too.

You are exactly the person I hoped would read this, because I know that you have a fantastic repertoire of dance moves. And are a great listener with an even better sense of humor. Plus your hair looks fantastic today. 

Even if those compliments seem generic, they are true, and hopefully they reminded you that you love compliments. Everyone does.

Jumpin

I may be 20 years old, but apparently that doesn’t mean that I can’t jump on trampolines. And on Saturday, a group of other similarly aged C of I students and I proved that being legal adults doesn’t have to be a barrier to trampoline-fun. As part of our Student Ambassador retreat, we went to JumpTime, which is essentially a building full of giant trampolines and little kid birthday parties.  

Gotta Get Down on Pi Day

So yesterday was every mathematician's favorite date: March 14th. To all my fellow non-math majors out there who might be confused as to the significance of this date, March 14th can be written as 3/14. This looks a lot like 3.14, which is about as many digits of Pi that most people remember. And if there's one thing that the students at Boone Hall hold close to their hearts, it's Pi. What better way to celebrate everyone's favorite irrational constant than to pig out on a food that's just a letter away?

Prepping the Garden

The sun is coming out, coats are coming off and daylight savings has kicked in. You know what this means? It means that spring in almost upon us.

From looking at the weather this week, it would seem to be approaching at a rapid rate and I am so very glad. I love warm weather, I love the feeling of the sun on my back and I love to see the world around me come into bloom.

The Aftermath: Glitter at Breakfast

This morning, I woke up and realized I’d lost an hour of my life. Not in the sense that I’d wasted a precious hour sleeping in when I should have been out seizing the day, but because today is the unkind part of daylight savings time. I’m happy enough to have my phone set itself an hour back in the fall, but it’s hard to give up that hour in the spring.  Mostly because it’s just about three o’clock in the afternoon and I’ve still got an essay to write, an essay to revise, a case study to read, and some French to knock out.

ZZZ You Later

I've been extraordinarily lucky this semester with the way my scheduling worked out. Through no conscious thought of my own, every one of the classes I scheduled falls in the afternoon. I didn't realize until the start of term that every Monday through Friday I could sleep in until noon if I so choosed. Unlike all semesters prior to this spring when I had early morning, 9 a.m. classes, I could finally sleep in without feeling guilty.
