Row, Row, Row Your Boat

We are seeing high temps here in Colorado and I’m not a fan. I moved to the mountains so I wouldn’t be hot. But lately it is hotter than hot here. Now in my 5 years of living here I’ve adjusted to the summers here. So what I would consider hot when I moved here…

There has to be Other Options…

How’s life? We are already half way through July! I cannot believe it. This past weekend I was able to go home and visit my parents. It was a very quick trip, meaning got off the plane at midnight Friday and got back on the plane Monday morning. It was the quickest trip home I’ve…

Bears!

Hey there, I hope everyone’s summer is going well. Mine sure is! I can’t believe it is already July. August is fast approaching and that means my grad program will be coming up soon. I’m telling myself I still have plenty of summer left. My boyfriend and I try to escape on the weekends to…

The Environment from a Different Perspective

  Hey there, I’ve been reading a lot of different things lately and I read a book yesterday about Buddhism. Someone once told me that people should learn about other religions and cultures. I’ve been going to yoga a lot lately so I thought I would read about Buddhism. After reading, The Heart of Being:Moral…

Yay! For Weekends!

  Happy Thursday! One more day until the weekend! Woop! Woop! I probably should’ve written this on Monday when all my thoughts were fresh but instead I was lazy and waited until today. Last weekend, was one of the first weekends where I had two days off since I have been back from my crazy…

REUSE!

  Hey, hey, hey, Hope everyone’s spring is going well. Summer is literally right around the corner and it definitely already feels like it here in Colorado. Work for me has started to pick up so I can finally start having some fun again because I’ll have money. At the end of the winter I…

Clean, Drain, And Dry

  Hey friends, I’m finally in one place for more than one night. I’ve had a solid month of traveling for work and play. It’s been exhausting but worth it. I look at the mountain everyday and definitely miss skiing. I also have realized that I took this season for granted and I really regret…

I did it!

Hey friends, your Concerned Ski Bum reporting for duty. Do you remember the blog post I posted a little while back telling you that I was doing a challenge for April?  Do you remember what that challenge was?  Don’t worry I’ll still tell you. My boyfriend and I have been setting challenges for ourselves each…

Crescent City

  Instead of going to the mountains for vacation, my boyfriend and I headed toward New Orleans, Louisiana. It was really cool! It’s such a great city. We stayed in the French quarter and explored the area. The city is public transportation friendly and I was impressed with how efficient it was. There’s busses, bike…

Bittersweet.

Hey there, Snow finally rolled in last week and we got a few feet of snow…at the end of the season of course.  Climate change, am I right?  My last day working at the mountain was the 7th and it was bittersweet. There was new snow, I just bought a new pair of skis, it…

Another Town, Another View

Once again, I fail at keeping this blog updated. I have a challenge for myself for this month, that challenge is to write four posts this month. I have some lined up so I should be able to meet this challenge. The season is ending and I have some time between the ski season and…

For all The Haters…

For all the haters out there that hate snow… Here’s the thing, we need the snow and we need the cold.  It is what makes the world go round, at least in Colorado.  “It’s the circle of life and it moves us all.” – Lion King Snow in Colorado is especially important because it provides…
