One of my favorite parts of living in Los Angeles is having access to so many fun restaurants, great shopping, and concert venues! This month I was able to go see Imagine Dragons, one of my favorite bands at The Wiltern!
Hey everyone! I hope you have had another productive and fun-filled week! The very entertaining Grammy Awards just passed last weekend and I was lucky enough to see Macklemore live in concert just three days prior to the big event. This is one of the main reasons I love LA – great music and great venues!
Here we go. In some strange turn of events, I find myself with just one semester remaining in my life as an undergraduate at USC. Leading up to this last semester was the coldest winter break of my life. No need to describe the weather; this Instagram video should suffice:
I’m so excited to be back at USC for the spring! It’s definitely nice to be back to the lovely warm Southern California weather, especially after a very cold winter break spent doing research in Antarctica.
I had the opportunity to travel to Antarctica for two weeks over winter break with a program called Students on Ice, which is based out of Canada along with 71 other high school and university students from around the United States and Canada. For the two weeks, we studied oceanography, tourism in Antarctica, and climate change, along with doing various landings on the Antarctic Peninsula and other islands like Elephant Island and Half Moon Island. It was certainly a once in a life time experience that taught me so much about a part of the world few people get to see.
Already into the first week of December, I can’t believe the fall semester is coming to an end. It honestly feels like I just landed in LAX with shorts and flip flops and I’m already getting ready to go back except this time with boots and a winter coat. Despite time feeling like it flew by, a few highlights come to mind that made the first half of my sophomore year that much more memorable. Here’s the recap of Fall 2013:
Wow! Time has really flown by this semester! It’s probably gone quicker than any other semester I’ve had at USC. It’s been a really challenging semester with 5 classes- but an unforgettable one. Here are my top ten highlights of the semester: Continue reading
Just like everyone else, I seriously can’t believe this semester is already almost over! This was definitely my favorite semester at USC so far. My classes are getting more and more interesting to me, I’m taking on more responsibility in the organizations I’m involved with, and while the dorms were perfect for freshman year, I love living in an an apartment now. While I pretty much enjoyed all aspects of this semester, here’s a top ten countdown of a few of the highlights.
For the last few years, I’ve been a pretty frequent concert goer, and I love finding new places to see my favorite artists live. Last year, I was lucky to get a couple of Maroon 5 (one of my all time favorites) tickets for a small show at the Orpheum Theatre! Continue reading
As an engineer, I have come to really value my weekends and the free days where I can explore Los Angeles and go to my favorite food, beach, and hang out spots! Coming from Northern California, we do not have the same luxury of nice beaches and perfect weather so on my free days I make the most of it there! However, when I want to get some work done and just relax with some laughs, great hang out spots are not very far away.
