  • Preparing For Chile! (Orginally Published 12/26)

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Happy Holidays everyone! I’m sitting here at my parents computer in Massachusetts, looking at the snow fall softly outside the window and my small, curly hairded dog run in circles around my chair. Its nice to relax after a pretty rough semester. Now I am getting ready for my departure to Chile in Februrary! Thanks [...]

  • Semester Endings (Orginally Published 12/12)

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Woah, this semester flew by… I can’t believe its already finals week! Don’t worry though, I’m not going to complain about how much work I have. Instead, I thought I would talk about one of my favorite classes of the semester, called the Dawn of Modernism. The instructor, Tom Simone, is what I always thought [...]

  • Life in the library isn't so bad

    Life in the library isn't so bad
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Everyone always told me my junior year in college would be really hard, but I defiantly did not understand just how much work I would have. However, I’ve found comfort in the fact that everyone else I know is in exactly the same boat. I’ve made new friends in the library simply because we both always [...]

  • Jon Irving Lecture

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    A great thing about UVM is that there are a few really interesting lectures every week. This thursday I saw one of my favorite authors, Jon Irving, speak. He is the author of Cider House Rules , A Prayer for Owen Meany , and many others. One of the most interesting things he talked about was his writing process, [...]

  • Happy in the Fall

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Going to school in the fall is like a dream. The morning air is crisp and cool. The foliage is bold against the dull gray sky. It is a calming preparation for the day. I love taking my bike to class. Judging by the filled bike racks all along campus, I know that many UVM [...]

  • I'm a Junior in College?!

    I'm a Junior in College?!
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Fall has come again, bringing crisp air and pumpkin flavored coffee. Accordingly, classes too have started. With them are the students of the many Burlington colleges, back for another year. After spending the summer in Burlington, I have found it a little overwhelming to be back in the old routine. It has taken these two weeks [...]

  • Finishing Up

    Finishing Up
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Classes ended yesterday and I can’t believe that another year has passed! It feels like time is racing by.. everything is changing so quickly! I’m moving out of the dorms and into a house in downtown Burlington. I’m staying here this summer, working at the Skinny Pancake (a delicious crepe place by Lake Champlain) and exploring [...]

  • Dorm Life

    Dorm Life
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    As I prepare to move off campus at the end of the year, I find myself becoming sentimental about my time in the dorms. I have lived in Harris Hall for the past two years, so I feel really comfortable with my surroundings. I know when the best times do laundry are (never on Sundays!), the [...]

  • Alice in Wonderland

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    The class of 2012 (my class!) has been selling tickets all week in the Davis Center for the premier of Alice in Wonderland. For a mere ten dollars I have a ticket to the 3D version as well as a ride, for they’re providing a bus to transport all of us from campus to the [...]

  • Yoga

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    One of the great things about UVM is that it offers a variety of fitness classes everyday. By buying a pass for the semester, you have access to everything from belly dancing to cardio kick boxing. Personally, I love the yoga classes. I always feel so relaxed after yoga, its a great way to de-stress [...]

  • New Semester, New Classes

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    After a great weekend skiing (it felt like Spring!) it feels good to get back to classes and really start in on the material for the semester. I am taking a pretty broad range of courses, from Botany (the study of plants) to a class on Chaucer… that is entirely in Middle English. However, the [...]

  • Andy Warhol Comes to UVM

    Andy Warhol Comes to UVM
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Yesterday, friends and I went to the Fleming Museum to see an exhibit entitled “Andy Warhol: Fashionistas and Celebrities.” The Fleming Museum is right on central campus, so we went right after class, and for free! The exhibit contained Polaroids taken by Warhol in the 1970s and 80s. It was so interesting to see work other [...]

  • WINTER'S HERE!!!

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    For months I have stopped myself from reaching into my closet and putting on my big, floor length, winter jacket. I have told myself over and over that I need to wait for “real winter.” Then the other day I realized it was December! The Christmas lights on church street are up, the snow is [...]

    The Meteor Shower
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Yesterday, my roommate told me about how she had learned in her Astrology class that there was a big meteor shower expected last night. I don’t have a lot of work this week so I figured it was the perfect time to go. A lot of my friends were in the same boat so we decided [...]

  • Getting Ready for Winter

    Getting Ready for Winter
    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    After a weekend of Indian summer it seems that the UVM campus has re-entered the cold. Everyone is bundled again and the talk of snow is abuzz. Following the trend, the triple major booth has set up shop again in the Davis Center. The triple major is a pass to three of the major mountains in [...]

  • Halloween!

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    One of my favorite things about UVM is how excited everyone gets about halloween! This week “how are you?” has been replaced with “what are you being for halloween?” I am going to be a lumberjack and a super hero. My friends and I are planning to carve pumpkins tomorrow and maybe attend one of [...]

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    So I am finally finished with all of my midterms! Yaaay! It was a stressful week to say the least. Which is why I love my art class. Its at 5:00 every Monday and Wednesday and its the perfect way to relax. Its two hours where all I have to do is draw, and though [...]

  • School Work

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Last year I remember making it a few weeks into school and realizing that college was in fact NOT summer camp. Meaning, college was not just a place for me to meet new people and have fun but a place for learning, where hard work was required. Well I have definitely hit that point again, [...]

  • Hello

    Emma G. Sector on Weblog for Emma
    Hi! Thanks for looking at my blog. I’m from Massachusetts, just a little north of Boston. This is my second year at UVM – and it’s great to be back! There’s so much I missed about Burlington this summer… the mountains, the sunsets over Lake Champlain, the mocha breve from my favorite coffee shop Common [...]
