Enchiladas and Home

kristen-2012 Viterbi Life 2 Comments

Tonight we’re making dinner and having a bunch of friends over. I’m really excited – I love my friends and I love good food and I love the weekend! We’re making guacamole for starters and enchiladas for the main course. A little bit of chicken, cheese, corn tortillas, sauce, olives, and we’re good to go! The ability to have “dinner …

Scavenger Hunt

arianna-2012 Viterbi Life 1 Comment

Well, I had a very eventful evening last night. Every year, some boys that I lived with in New/North my freshman year put on a scavenger hunt, and this year was even better than the last. You get a team of four people together, and run/bike/drive/skateboard/crawl/etc. around USC completing a list of tasks three pages long. The list this year …

Mid-Semester Vacation

ryan-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

So instead of staying in LA for Halloween and going to class on Friday/Monday, I headed out to Providence, RI to visit my girlfriend, Shannon, who goes to school at  Brown University there. The travel time was about 10 hours total, which isn’t too bad considering I went from coast to coast. I managed to watch “The Proposal” and “Up” …

Happy Halloween

So it is that time of year again to depart from the real, and endulge your imagination by exploring your subconscious! With hard work in school, we owe it to ourselves to take at least one solid weekend off to have a bit of fun and go out and live it up in an out of the ordinary way! So, …

Family

You know…..college as a freshman is a whole new experience…..new people…new location…new responsibilities…and not to mention new freedoms! Nobody there to tell you what to do. I’ll save it for another blog to say that this new found freedom for freshmen is a two-sided sword. What I can say though, as a sophomore, is that in the midst enormous amounts …

Oh, the College Life

ryan-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

My inspiration to write this blog is what’s on my mind. I don’t have any specific topics to write about today (as I haven’t done much in the past week), but at least I’m finally out of midterm season. I have this whole week to catch up on school work. Anyway, without further distractions, I ramble onward below… * Food: …

Shopping places

It’s raining outside! What the heck is up with that! For the last two days, we have had rain here in LA. This is not normal for the true Southern-Californiaite who is used to the 70-80s range of temperatures under the bright sunny sky. So, when I heard the rain was coming our way, I was taken a bit off …

Too Much of Nothing

ryan-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

So I ended up doing a large amount of sitting around and not really accomplishing much this weekend. It was actually pretty nice, albeit somewhat disappointing – I bought Seasons 1-5 of Entourage of DVD and didn’t get them until Monday sadly. Oh well, I can watch next weekend! 🙂 On Thursday I (of course) attended EA Sports Game Night …

Sports Outside of USC

warren Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

USC Football, USC baseball, USC basketball, all of our fellow Trojan teams do quite well for themselves as individuals as well as representing our university.  Of course it’s fun to go and watch a few of these games, eat a few burgers and even a few slices of pizza, but what playing sports to loose calories rather than watching sports …

The Weekender

ryan-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Considering that the majority of all I’ve done in the past week is schoolwork and go to the Weekender, this post will be dedicated to the Weekender for the reader’s pleasure. Some friends and I left early Friday morning to make the trip up to NorCal for this past weekend’s USC v. Cal game in Berkeley. Since I live up …

In-n-out

arianna-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Today I had my first in-n-out ever!!! Most people are super surprised because I have been in California for a year and never ever had in-in-out ever. I got a “grilled cheese” (because I am a vegetarian) and it was delicious. For those of you that do not know, a hamburger at in-n-out has lettuce, tomato, and “spread” (which is …

The Office

kristen-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Thursday is a long day. I’ve got materials science at 8am, and lab until 8pm. I also have a total of 5 hours of physics, between my 2 hour lecture and 3 hour lab. By the time 9 o’clock rolls around I’m ready to have some fun with friends and laugh really loudly. Hence, my love affair with The Office. …

Phew. It’s been a long week. And the next one will be just as long as this one. I managed to get the assignments I needed to done – but there’s still more to do that are due next week. I just had my first midterm yesterday but I think it went well! 🙂 I can’t let my guard down …

It’s Britney…

arianna-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

Well it’s been another great but crazy week. I had my first midterm bright and early Thursday morning at 8 a.m. so I had my whole Wednesday open to study…little did i know what would happen. Being the good student that I am, I had of course waited until the day before to begin studying. I had left from 2 …

Flying around the Basin

warren Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

This weekend was fabulous- a  great escape to the stress that invariably comes with preparing for midterms. One of my pilot friends from my  Aerospace classes and I went flying from Santa Monica airport to Long Beach, with over head passes over USC’s campus as well as downtown. What a way to top off the week….flying over the entire city, …

Food Not Bombs: USC

arianna-2012 Viterbi Life 2 Comments

hello everyone! This morning, my roomate and I cooked with the USC chapter of Food Not Bombs. It was something I had always wanted to do, but never really had the chance to participate in my freshman year. Food Not Bombs is an organization that shares free vegetarian (and as I found out usually vegan) food with hungry people while …

InBlogural Address

Since this is my first post, I figured I might as well evaluate how the year has been so far… and that is a resounding AWESOME. Coming back down to SC, living in an apartment, taking fun classes, going fun places on the weekend, football – it has all been so much fun! Things I’ve done/Places I’ve been so far: …

USC Traditions

warren Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

There are many, many, rich traditions at USC. Some have to do with academics, some have to do with sports, some have to do with other extra-curricular activities, and some, well we don’t know where they came from. Whatever the origin of this tradition, I want to share it with you, because it is one simple, small tradition, one that …
