This week I think I’ll take you on a little tour of my home. This year I live in Century Apartments – one of the many upperclassmen housing options at USC. I have a double – so it’s me and one roommate in a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom, and a kitchen. We have more closet space than I could ever know what to do with, and a sweet balcony! USC also has a lot of triples and 4-perons (and even a few singles).
This is the pool in the courtyard. Note to self: always take pictures during the day!
This is one place I study (my room!)
This is another place I study! (Comfy corner chair by the lamp!)
And sometimes I study at the kitchen table! (so many choices!)
Speaking of kitchens - this is my kitchen! It has all the necessities. A stove for making bacon-wrapped hot-dogs, a freezer for storing frozen taquitos, and a drawer for storing ramen!
Ramen is my favorite food! (Note: many college students eat much healthier than I do...)
This is the closet that I store all my Colleges Against Cancer stuff in! I have a LOT of stuff for CAC!
(read more about CAC!)
I have a great balcony with a great view (trees > street)
My roommate and I put up lots of posters this year! This is our movie/concert wall. I contributed the scott pilgrim and star wars ones on the far right, and the lady gaga one in the corner!
This wall is all me. I literally multiplied the nerdiness of the room by infinity. It's ok though, it turns out the limit of the room as nerdiness approaches infinity = AWESOME!
If that wasn't enough to convince you - here is proof! That is a 6'x6' pokemural made of my old pokemon cards. I made it in Wisconsin when I was bored. Wisconsin is sometimes less exciting than Los Angeles...
This is Leah, my neighbor across the hall/lab partner! Leah has a ViterbiVoices blog too!

Well – I hope you liked the tour! This is my third year in USC housing. As a freshman, I lived in Birnkrant, a dorm on campus (my favorite so far!), and sophomore year, I lived in a 4-person apt. in Troy Hall, an apartment building very similar to Century. I love USC housing because it’s convenient. I don’t have to buy furniture and worry about storing it over the summer, and I also get to have just a 9 month lease. Furthermore, USC Residential Education (RAs, etc.) always puts on great programs where I get to go have free food, educational and cultural experiences around Los Angeles! I’ve done too many programs through housing to count, but some of the highlights include lasertag, six taste tours, dinner at the grove, and Knott’s Scary Farm
