Birthday Surprises

kristen-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

One of the things I’ve loved most about sophomore year so far is the way my friends celebrate birthdays. Every birthday is a surprise party. Of course, it was easy at first. No one suspected it. The evening of a friend’s birthday wasn’t suspicious and you could fill his or her apartment with people without drawing too much attention. After …

Storms in LA???

Well one week of school is complete! It is going to be really nice to have Fridays without class this semester. I also do not start class until noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. At first, being a morning person, I was a little bit upset, but after only one week I do not think it is going to be that …

Picture Perfect

The college viewbook. Home to statistics, profiles on notable alumni, and, of course, all of those huge color photos of the students “living their lives” (or, rather, the lives that the photographer set up). Most of the time, my life wouldn’t fit very well in the pages of a viewbook. I usually study better in my room than in one …

One downside was that whilst I was skiing a tight fallline in the trees, in some sickkkk powder, I hit a tree branch, and damage some tissue muscle near my rib…good news was …

So this appears to (sadly) be my last post of break. This time next week I’ll be telling you all about my new classes for second semester! Anyway, New Years was great. A happy, healthy, and prosperous 2010 to you all! My girlfriend got me some sweet headphones for Christmas (we exchanged gifts when we met in Utah) and I …

Hey everybody! I hope that everyone is having a fabulous time finally decompressing from all the stress of the everyday routine throughout the semester. I’m up in Wyoming with some friends and family taking in the great sights as well as skiing it up! Up here in Jackson Hole, where I actually lived for a semester in high school, the …

Happy New Year

Hope everyone had a great beginning to the new year. I’m still in freezing cold Valparaiso, IN, but I had a great New Year’s Eve. My closest friends from high school all went out to eat and then we just hung out and rang in the new year together. It is always good seeing old friends, and I have been …

When I got home my mom had a bunch of food made for me…this included veggie lasagna mmmmmmm, potato soup, and cookies. I’m never going to want to go back to school. haha It’s also …

I AM DONE WITH SCHOOL FOR THE SEMESTER AND SO EXCITED FOR BREAK πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Anyway, finals didn’t turn out to be too bad. I’d say I did pretty well, especially considering the long semester I’ve had and the hard classes I’ve taken. It’s great to be done and have a break for awhile now and come …

This Wednesday my roommates and I decided to have a mini Christmas party! We bought 2 gingerbread house kits, some peppermint hot cocoa, and sparkling apple cider. After dressing up in green and red and putting Love Actually into the DVD player, our party began! At first we had some trouble getting the houses to stay together, but after actually …

Invite

Last night my sorority had its fall themed invite. The theme this time was holiday, so my date and I dressed up as trees and were Arbor Day. I would just like to take the time to point out that Arbor Day is the the least appreciated holiday ever. Do you even know what day it is??? exactly. (neither did …

Snow…well almost

I flew home on Tuesday night Wednesday morning at 1 am for Thanksgiving. I have slept most of the break away, but I did have to get up super early (aka 7:30 am Indiana time and therefore 5:30 California time!!!) because I participated in the Turkey Trot, a 10k (6.2 mile) run on Thanksgiving morning. Well, this was not my …

Ice Skating in Los Angeles

arianna-2012 Viterbi Life Leave a Comment

I went ice skating today! It was a lot of fun, but it was a really weird feeling to go ice skating in warm weather. At home, I get bundled up in scarves, gloves, and layers upon layers of clothing in the winter. It is a ritual every time you go outside in the winter in the Midwest, and you …
