What I've learned, part 2

“Sometimes you have to play with fire to find out how to not get burned.” This a quote I’ve come to find very realistic while in college. When you are away from old friends or family and on your own to make decisions, it can sometimes be hard to get things right on your first try.  In the residence halls, you have to do your own laundry. I remember seeing lot of trial and error there: someone using dish soap in the washing machine, or someone thinking that turning it on made the machine release its own soap.

Cabin fever?

When you ask most people what they think of when referring to winters in Durango, probably 80% of the answers you get are skiing and snowboarding related.  While these are a couple of the great things our area has to offer, I personally come nowhere close to being able to afford it.  Of course I’m not trying to discourage anyone from getting a pass and going skiing every day (without missing class obviously), I’m just suggesting some possible alternatives that I have discovered since starting at Fort Lewis.

An adventurous summer in Durango

During my Junior and Senior years of high school, as I started looking for colleges, I wanted to find a school where I would never be bored and could always find something exciting to do.  Durango is probably the most exciting and challenging place to explore that I have come across.  Year-round, there are all sorts of different adventures to embark on.  I’ll try to explain at least some of what I have come to love doing in Durango.
