Suppression is Not the Key to Happiness

October 26th, 2018

I cried today. Twice. Unbeknownst to the part of me that likes to feel as if I’m always in control. One of my best friends FaceTimed me from Colorado and then one of my best friends called me from Austin for our typical end-of-day recap, and without warning, the flood gates opened. To better illustrate this moment, please imagine me at my usual table in Whole Foods (meaning, my possessions are strewn all over the place) while I inhale an entire bag (yes, bag) of Justin’s mini dark chocolate peanut butter cups. Meanwhile, Nugget is staring at me from across the table. Sidebar: if you don’t... Read More

October 20th, 2018

The Marijuana for Medical Professionals 2018 conference in Denver started on Sunday morning, October 14th, wrapped up at the end of the day on Tuesday, October 16th, and it was incredible! I spent three packed days soaking up valuable cannabis education from physicians, nurses, and other leading experts in the industry. With the majority of these presentations being accredited for continuing medical and nursing education credits, it was one of the most comprehensive and informative conferences I’ve had the pleasure of attending.

Not-So-Typical Guide to Midterms

October 8th, 2015

If you’re anything like me, midterms are the time for procrastination and self-inflicted stress. Sometimes, it’s hard to study a week, or even a few days, before a test. Since freshman year I have studied in a crunch-time sort of way. That is, the night before an exam. Although this method definitely works (most of the time) to get me the grade that I desire, it definitely doesn’t work to provide long-term gains in knowledge. I think that hardest part about this is coming to term with the fact that grades aren’t everything. Once this is known, studying becomes more for the... Read More

One Thing All Students Should Do

May 8th, 2015

It may come off as cheesy, as obvious even, but no matter the connotation of this simple phrase, it is the one thing that all students should do: Be present. Last week in my Literary Analysis class, one student expressed her views on entropy – how could everything, all life and all matter, be pulled towards chaos? Another student in this same class explained that out of every class taken at the University of Colorado, this particular class was the only one that she felt completely engaged in. The downfall within today’s society is that everyone, especially students, are constantly... Read More
