Lets see, where did I leave off? Oh yeah! I was right about to talk about E-Days but the month changed to April before I had the chance. So here I am!
For E-Days, lots of festivities took place. I got to participate in the annual Ore Cart Pull, which, in my mind, was one of the most fun events that I was able to participate in. This consisted of pulling an Ore Cart all the way to the Denver capital building. Although this thoroughly exhausted me, I had no chance to stop and catch my breath because the weekend was just getting started. The rest of my day consisted of participating in Mining related field day, seeing a singing tesla coil, and going to see sound remedy, a dub step DJ. I was finally relieved when I could relax afterwards and watch a movie with my friends.
The next day started off bright and early again with the cardboard boat races down the creek in Golden. I am so glad that I got up that morning to see the races because if I didn’t I wouldn’t of been able to see this:
If any of you are wondering, this is an AT-AT from Star Wars, made entirely out of cardboard and two humans inside of it walking down the creek. The next thing that happened that day was the E-Days carnival that consisted of lots of amazing food, lots of bouncy castles, games, and music. This, at the time, I thought was the perfect ending to E-Days, but I found out later that I called the game way to early.
That night, I went to the big E-Days concert which was 3OH!3 this year which was pretty cool seeming as they were really popular my 8th grade year and that meant I could recognize at least 50% of their songs. What was truly amazing was what came after the concert, which was the annual end of E-Days fireworks show. If you put together all of the fireworks shows that you have ever seen you would then get the Mines E-Days firework show. I have seen the fireworks show in Washington, D.C. for the 4th of July show and it doesn’t even hold a candle to the caliber of this fireworks show (no pun intended). I then was at peace, because that show was, in fact, the perfect ending to an awesome weekend.
The rest of April for me has been busy to say the least; my classes have been finishing up, and my epics project has finally started to finish up. As far as I can see, this semester has been a very big success. I have had a great time learning about all the various subjects involved in my profession, and about myself and what I want to do with my life. I hope that this blog has been at least, slightly enlightening about life here at Mines, or helpful when it came to your decision on whether or not to come to school here at Mines.
Now, it is what we call dead week here at Mines. It is the week before finals where teachers are not allowed to give an exam so that students have a chance to study and prepare for all their finals. So I am now going to go study, good luck with the rest of your schooling and I hope to see you here next year!
