Ahhhhh... Sorry for the long absence! Sometimes you need to clear your head, you know? The semester is over, the snow is falling, and I have gotten some awesome "me" time to relax, rejuvenate, mourn, recoup, and start to get my life together.

As I mentioned, the snow has finally started falling in Breckenridge. We've gotten quite a few good storms in the last two weeks which is absolutely wonderful... I almost forgot how much I loved snow! I've gotten a few pow days in already which has been great, I really needed it. Christmas morning was probably the most beautiful morning I've seen in a while.... A snowstorm had just cleared and their was a fresh layer of sparkly snow on the ground.

The Dew Tour was also in town. It was quite the show this year since Dew Tour cut down their winter stops to just Breckenridge. My boyfriend got us VIP passes for spectacular viewing all weekend, and even got us and 8 friends tickets to a sold out show. It definitely pays to work for the town!

I also added a new addition to my family, an 8 week old Chihuahua named Bear. You think that's cute, but watch out, he's ferocious! ;-) I didn't know it was possible for a living creature to be this small and this cute. He has brought a lot of joy into my life the last week and I can't wait to watch him grow. He's also a genius I might add... I got him at 7 weeks and he's already trained to go on a little potty pad.

Of course this break would be going way to well already if something weren't to go wrong... My roommate went for a night time jog up baldy with his two dogs Matix (white) and Mako. They're probably two of the friendliest dogs I know, but apparently the porcupine they tried to play with disagreed. We spend 7 hours in the doggy ER in Silverthorne. A couple thousand dollars later they pulled more than 1,000 quills out of Matix's face alone. Not to mention the quills in his neck, legs, gums, roof of his mouth... yikes. It's been almost three weeks and we're still pulling them out after they push themselves out of his skin.

I can only hope things continue to go up the rest of this break and into next semester. I hope to start posting a lot more as well. I want to thank the phenomenal and supportive staff and faculty at CMC for their incredible support and understanding. I don't know if things would have turned out so well anywhere else. CMC truly is a spectacular college. In fact, it's more than that, it's a community.
