Will Work for Weed and Benefits!

April 30th, 2017

A little over a year ago, I left a job as a corporate sales trainer for one of the country’s largest wireless carriers. There were a lot of reasons I left, but one of the biggest was that I was tired of working for corporate America. I wanted to work for a smaller company. I wanted to contribute more to a small organization who would value my work and talents, not just count me among one of their many drones. More specifically, I thought it would be cool to take my experience as a corporate professional and try to land a job in the cannabis industry. Now I wish I could write about how I’ve... Read More

Be Boulder, Bike to Work

June 14th, 2016

We’ve all been there, stuck in traffic on the way to work as a bicyclist zips by us in the bike lane. We envy their blissful freedom from the snare of cars, imagining ourselves embarking on the same, ultimately Boulder trip instead of melting into the seat of our car. Now is your chance to join them. June 22nd is Boulder’s official bike to work day. Take this opportunity to free yourself from the frustration of rush hour and join the party. Presented by the City of Boulder in cooperation with Community Cycles, this Boulder celebration makes an early morning commute into a community festival.... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of The Day!

March 5th, 2016

“I loved architecture rendering because I was either drawing or painting everyday. That’s before, I’m dating myself, before it was a lot of computer work. Really, it was mostly hand done. I went back and took some auto keg classes and I really saw sitting at the computer was not my thing at all. So I decided nope, I’m not going to do that. I mean if people want me to do rendering at home that’s great, but not on the computer. I enjoyed learning it but I can’t sit on the computer for 8 hours everyday. I would go crazy.”- Kathleen Lanzoni  Read More

The Things All Students Should Let Go Of Come 2016

December 10th, 2015

With the new year approaching it’s time to reflect on the past semester, past year, and decide what our resolutions for 2016 will be. First things first: What were our mistakes this past year? What are the things we should say goodbye to? 1) Any hate towards a specific professor – Everyone has a least favorite. However, with this semester coming to an end, the only way to let it go is to accept, forget and move on. For every one bad teacher at CU, there are 100 great ones. 2) The thought of, “I could have done better.” – The past is the past. Make a resolution to change... Read More

Faces of Boulder- Pic of the Day!

June 5th, 2015

Meet GiGi! GiGi is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but at the age of 15 moved to Estes Park to attend boarding school. She just graduated in December, and was working for a hotel in Longmont, but has recently been looking for work in Boulder.  She enjoys hanging out on Pearl street, and watching the street performers! “I need to come out here and start bucket-drumming or something.”  Read More

The Grand Re-Opening of the Royal Arch Trail

November 26th, 2014

Over a year ago, the floods damaged many of the hiking trails in the Chautauqua area. Many of these trails were repaired fairly quickly, but one took longer than others. The Royal Arch trail was devastated by the floods, and it was quite difficult to put it all back together. You may even recognize a few new routes that had to navigate around the flood’s more serious damages. It couldn’t have been rebuilt without a team of dedicated workers, however. Mike Patton, OSMP director, talked about the reconstruction in a news release. “With combined hard work from the local climbing... Read More

Boulder B-Cycle is About to Get a LOT Bigger

August 15th, 2014

Boulder is a city made for biking. The network of bike paths that span across Boulder County is unbelievably expansive, and B-Cycle is taking full advantage of this. B-Cycle, for those who are unfamiliar with the company, offers bike stations all over Boulder that allow people to rent bikes for small periods of time. You simply pick up a bike at one station, and then you ride it to another station and park it when you’ve finished your bike ride. It’s an excellent system, especially for those who don’t have access to bikes. Anyway, B-Cycle has some very exciting news to report:... Read More

The Art of Procrastination

December 13th, 2013

Finals week is upon us here at CU, which means that students all across campus are now utilizing their years of education and highly developed problem solving skills in order to come up with excuses to avoid studying. As a senior, I can safely say that I’ve become an expert on the subject. A black belted master in the art of putting things off, if you will. Heck, I’m even procrastinating right now by writing this blog instead of working on my English portfolio! Now, I would never recommend procrastination to any student. It’s a dark, treacherous road that can lead you to drink... Read More

Boulder County Flood Relief

September 24th, 2013

After facing the devastating floods that began on September 11, the result of an eight-day period in which The National Weather Service reported between 7 and 18 inches of rain, Boulder County has maintained its resolve and continues to rebuild. After the natural disaster, which destroyed approximately 2,000 homes, cut off entire towns, and washed away countless roads, hundreds of people were reported to be missing or unaccounted for. That number diminished quickly, however, as people checked in to authorities and on Tuesday, it was reported that the final six missing people were found to be safe. Of... Read More
