It’s finally winter ! My university’s campus looks incredible covered in white, and I genuinely feel like I live in a snow globe every time there’s a new snowfall. I couldn’t be more excited to see the massive amounts of beautiful snow and get to enjoy my favorite season once again. Also, my favorite clothes reside in my winter wardrobe, so I’m pretty excited to wear those again! Scroll below to see some gorgeous shots of NAU from this past week.
If you know me, then you should already know that I am a complete sucker for anything aesthetically pleasing, especially if it has to do with Fall. For as long as I can remember, Fall has been my favorite season. Everything old is essentially dying and starting to fall off of trees (and my worrisome mind) , and the leaves changing really signify new beginnings for me each year. Thus, to celebrate this new season in my life, I went to the prettiest pumpkin patch in Flagstaff, Viola’s, with some great company.
I met Warren Buffett.
This past month I had the opportunity, alongside 19 other students from the W.A. Franke College of Business, to go on the trip of a lifetime. After an intense interview process, with an upwards of 200 applications, we were the ones that were selected to go and essentially shadow Warren Buffett and his teams from Berkshire Hathaway organizations. We flew to Omaha, Nebraska, and I had the opportunity to not only visit with Mr. Warren himself ( please read further to hear the crazy story of how THAT happened lol), but also got to visit and tour Oriental Trading Company, Borsheims Fine Jewelry, and The Nebraska Furniture Mart. This was probably the most iconic experience of my whole business undergraduate degree. I think I’ve officially peaked.
One of the most amazing things I did in college so far was go to AZ Hot Springs with the Hiking Club and my best friends back in Spring 2017. This is obviously an overdue blog post, considering it happened back in 2017, but I still felt the need to talk about the AZ Hot Springs this year. If you ever visit AZ or need a new AZ trail to hike through, you absolutely have to go to the AZ Hot Springs.
I met Mia Pique during my freshman year of college at NAU, since she just so happened to be the lucky random roomie that got assigned to me. I thought I wouldn’t like her. I feared that she would be crazy… or rude… or loud and impolite. I thought she could be mean, or maybe she would hate me, and I’d feel bad in my own dorm. None of that happened. I didn’t even expect what happened.
