Work, Work, Work…

Sometimes I hate work. School work, jobs, whatever. Sometimes I wish that I could just do nothing or everything, but just not what I’m supposed to be doing. Inspired by Monsterbook!, I drew my own monster… my lazy self as a monster. Sometimes I love work. It helps that I have an awesome job and get to work with some

(Unillustrated and sort of Concise) Weekend Adventures

Now that I’m in the last few days to accomplish a whole lot of work, I seem to have perfected my abilities to waste time. Hours and hours at a time. Gone. Glad I’m really good at something. And even though I’ve been goofing around about 90% of the time, I have still been neglecting to write about the awesome

A quick break in the silence…

Wow, I have been neglecting this blog. It’s a busy time and I’m totally swamped. This month is the most intense month for work for me, and my classes are picking up fast. I’ve had friends and my cousin in town and so much to write about… but no time. Soon I’ll make up for it, but for now, I’m

Trying to keep my head above water…

…really sums it up. I’m inches away from drowning in just about every aspect of my life. I’m behind in everything and don’t feel like I’ve had enough time to put into each of my classes, my work, skating, and even this blog. I also have already broken my promise to myself about making it up to the mountains to

Still on Vacation?

Classes may have started and I’ve been back to work for 2 weeks now, but while things haven’t gotten so crazy, I’m trying to live it up as much as possible. Thursday was my first day with both classes at Angevine, but the timing of the classes are late enough that I could enjoy going out to breakfast with Lazer

Back to the Books…

I’m 42 pages deep in my 1184-paged Environmental Organic Chemistry text book on the 3rd day of class. Not too bad. Classes are under full swing already, and once again, I’m pretty excited about the three I’m taking: Fundamentals of Environmental Engineering, Environmental Engineering Organic Chemistry and Sustainable Community Development 2. The classes are pretty varied; Fundamentals is an big

hmmmm.

An early morning in Gunbarrel. I love waking up here. On Friday, I retested my project with the heat lamp moved a little higher. While the temperature inside one of the buildings in the Tar City raised slowly – about 4 degrees over 15 minutes, the temperature in the same building in Garden City stayed consistent throughout the entire 15

The (Not So) Lazy Days…

In the last three days I went snowboarding at Breckenridge, went to yoga twice, and skated rampy. My body is in shock after being lazy and sick all break… but it feels really good. The rampy session was crowded (Glen, Lazer, Jake, Jason, Nate, Rick, Travis, and me), considering the space available, but as always, amazing. I know a lot

Fellows dinner (before I learned my lesson)

A few more pictures from the fellows dinner. The whole crew. (Jon was trying to put on a mean face…he just looks confused.) Mindy and the family. Emmilene was completely absorbed in the CU football game which was playing on the tv in the corner. The boys. (Jon did a little better with his mean face this time!)

just another tuesday

Tuesdays are my seminar days for work. We meet every Tuesday at 3:30 and usually have a guest speaker that goes over some type of teaching topic. Some in the past have been on the engineering design loop/process or learning inventories, etc. Today’s topic was “tough love” presented by a women that works at CU, but used to teach math
