I’M GOING TO MISS THE MEMES – There I said it!

Here we go. Last one. I CANNOT believe that it’s December and my last fall semester is basically over. Usually, I feel like Dwight in this gif at the end of a semester. But, as a senior, I’m feeling a lot like this Pam right now.   This semester coming to a close and winter break […]

How One Family is Changing Basketball

I was raised in a very sports-centric family. My fondest memories are from TV viewings in our living room with my immediate family, friends, cousins, etc. It doesn’t matter what league or day of the week, our TV is always ready for the next big game. As a native Coloradoan, I have taken all of […]

Second, thank you to the entire class for going easy on me because I was first- I really appreciated the questions! Hopefully, I answered […]

Thoughts & Concerns about the Constant Scrolling

Although this is not my first CSOM class, Professor Kane’s warning that this “class isn’t for everybody” sets this class up to be challenging.  I was freaking out and still am, but I’m up for the challenge! But, after this week’s class, it […]
