"Hey" Sean approached me with his usual strong presence in Worner, "Im  in charge of this group that teaches underprivileged kids the value of nature, we’re looking to get some more volunteers." He leaned in close and smiled "I know how much you miss summer camp, and this would be very similar, why don’t you come to our meeting on tuesday, were having Chipolte"

David and I had been looking forward to our trip to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival all summer. Finally that fateful day came and we piled into his friends van with an assortment of banjos, amps, and guitars. He strung his ukelele the whole way there, at one point stopping to stare at me. “You look so pretty in the sun” he said allowed before aggressively strumming his uke and turning it into a silly song “YOUUUU LOOOOKKK SOOOOO PRETTYYY IN THE SUNNNNN SUNSHINEEEEEE,” After his loud jam session, he turned to me and asked “Do you think I could win with that ballad?”

When I first met Jack, he could barely make easy mac in the microwave. After trying my vegan pumpkin scones at our Blues and Shoes boozy brunch potluck, he approached me, begging to learn how to bake something to impress a girl. Naturally, I offered to help. He came over to my small heritage apartment kitchen every afternoon and I showed him the basics of mixing flour and sugar, and how to grease a pan. The other day we were sitting on my deck, waiting for the blueberry muffin tops Jack had made to cool off. It was at that moment he looked up at me, smiled and said, “So the girl I was trying to impress all along was you, I hope these work.” and handed me a muffin.

"Hey pretty lady" Brendan came up behind me, "Its going to be a full moon tonight, why don’t we get drinks on the Phantom patio?" He lowered his voice and got closer,  "Then we can go back home and take advantage of my rooftop" he said with a clever smile. 

"I really just want to bike to bars this summer" Daniel was fooling around in his back yard. "Can you get a DUI for doing this" he shouted and proceeded to ride around with no hands or feet.

Joe kept looking up at me from his book while I worked on my slackline yoga. I teased him “You’re never going to become an EV major if you don’t finish that book.” He gave me a sly chuckle and said “tha’d be ok as long as I could watch you slack every day”

"Wassup gurl" Taylor made a stupid face as I emerged from the tent. "This pancake got your name on it" He turned and pointed to his left "eat up because were going up there next." 

I had never really noticed Jake, until he approached me after an ORC meeting, asking if I wanted to lead a trip with him over block break to the Maroon Bells. We became closer through the pre trip meetings, and survived a near death experience driving over Independence Pass. But it was not until we all romped around shirtless together that I realized how happy he makes me. 

"I just want to major in trail running" Luke said as we were standing in line for post workout vegan smoothies at Colorado Coffee. Originally we started running together just to train for the beer mile, but now we spend every afternoon running Garden of the Gods together, talking about everything under the sun.

"Im having a really hard time deciding what my spirit animal is" Will gazed at his hedgehog while we wandered the trees by the kidney table. "Sometimes I feel like I really identify with a giraffe who is only 2 feet tall, but that does not exist in nature."
