Lost in study, and losing track of time

It’s a sure sign that it’s spring and summer vacation is less than two months away when daylight-saving time prolongs our daylight into the evening hours.

Sunday, while trying to focus on the papers and books sprawled across the kitchen table, I wondered what would befall me if my parents hadn’t changed our clocks. In my own world of homework and projects, I probably wouldn’t have remembered the time change. Wrapped up in my work all day Sunday, Monday morning could bring many surprises.

Being an hour late to school would be embarrassing if not hard to explain. Walking into the mysteriously empty hallways, the realization would dawn upon me as I sprinted to class. Hopefully, all the students at Glenwood Springs High School have adjusted, and are looking forward to longer afternoons!

There’s nothing like watching an outdoor high school sport to experience the joys of spring weather. If the weather turns foul, you can always follow our Boys’ Swim Team to a fast-paced indoor meet.

Our Student of the Week this week is Angie Barber. Angie was nominated by Mr. Burke for being an excellent and hard-working student in his geometry class.

Angie has lived in Glenwood for two years, and previously lived in Carbondale and Blue Lake.

She lives with her parents, Laurie and Joe, and a little sister, Cari. With her sister and dad, Angie likes to go fishing, camping, and hiking. She also likes to share time with her mom while going to movies.

A freshman, Angie has stayed busy trying high school sports and clubs. She played volleyball in the fall, and is now a member of the Girls’ Golf Team. Golf is a new sport for Angie, and she has been enthusiastic in her approach to learning this frustrating sport. She is also an active member in GSHS’s Key Club.

When she has free time, Angie likes to devote it to spending time with her friends and family. She also enjoys working on and perfecting the art of calligraphy. Angie is a sweet, seemingly quiet girl, but assures me that she is quite talkative with her friends and family.

This summer, Angie may be traveling to Europe. She is excited to travel overseas and experience the ancient countries, different cultures, and amazing structures.

Farther in the future, Angie looks forward to attending college after high school. Good luck and congratulations, Angie!
