Twice-a-year ski trips to Colorado with friends and family were a highlight.
In the summer of 2006, Matt, Jamie, and I spent a month travelling around Europe.
In my senior year, I applied to graduate schools in Boulder, Seattle, and the Bay Area (all places with job prospects for Matt and skiing nearby). I settled on CU in Boulder, and we decided to move out together. But first, I deferred admission for a year and went to China.
