Hey guys! I hope you enjoyed reading my blog last week about my major. It is finally Friday and a long President’s Day weekend! I look forward to heading to the movies with friends and relaxing on the beach in the next couple of days. Last weekend, my parents came to USC for Pi Beta Phi’s parent events. On Friday, my mom and I went to a beautiful brunch followed by a father-daughter basketball game on Saturday. I thought I would tell you a little about how fun both of these events were!
Every year, my sorority plans separate mother-daughter and father-daughter events. When Friday came, my mom and I headed to the sorority house to enjoy brunch. As we arrived, we met many of my sorority sisters’ moms and sat in the nicely decorated dining room. There was a flautist which made for a very relaxing environment. Not only was it great to talk to everyone, but the chef made delicious food. There were mini parfaits, quiches, chocolate fondue, and so much more! I loved being able to see my mom and introduce her to all of our new members.
The next day, Pi Phi planned a fun event for our dads. My dad and I headed to the house around 5 where we indulged in a delicious taco truck. We sat with my friend Crystal whose dad worked in a very interesting industry, the fish industry. My dad loved listening to his stories as he always watches shows including “Deadliest Catch”. It was great learning about something I knew so little about. After we left Pi Phi, my dad and I stopped by the Founders’ Room in the Galen Center to meet up with one of his old friends. We enjoyed a few snacks and headed to our seats. It was the big game: USC vs. UCLA. My dad and I had a blast rooting on our team and watching the half time entertainment, David Garibaldi. He is a speed painter who was featured on America’s Got Talent. He proceeded to paint a Tommy Trojan upside down. It was crazy! Even though USC lost the game after a long fight, my dad and I still had a great time together!
Those two events were definitely the highlight to my week. There is nothing better than sharing the place that I love with my parents. I look forward to see what the events for next year will be like. I hope you enjoyed reading a little bit about my life outside of engineering. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! Fight on!
