So this Spring break was pretty busy and hectic!!! Instead of sitting on my couch and being lazy like I did last year (I wanted to go home SO badly), I stayed in LA, went to Mexico with some friends, and spent time with my mom who came to visit me! Continue reading
Hey guys! I hope you all have had fun-filled weeks! I cannot believe there are only a couple more weeks left of this semester before summer. A fun event that the USC Concert Committee coordinates every spring is Springfest. They put together a day full of talented performers and attractions for students to enjoy. Springfest 2014 took place last Saturday, and I had a great time. I thought I would tell you a little more about why Springfest is so great.
Midterms are slowly beginning to slow down so I can finally tell you about my Spring Break. I decided to break it up into two parts, half of which I would go car-camping, and the other traveling to Portland, Oregon. In retrospect this made my break very busy and let me really make the most out of the free week!
Welcome back to my five part blog series Food in Los Angeles! Last time, in Part 1, I detailed my parents’ weekend dinner with my mother, when we ventured into Los Angeles’ Arts District to try Wurstkuche (a German sausage restaurant) and the Pie Hole (a dessert place). If you are interested in those restaurants, check out my previous blog, appropriately named Food in Los Angeles: A USC Student’s Guide to Off-Campus Eateries (Part 1). In Part 2 of Food in Los Angeles, we will be tasting the delicious Italian cuisine of Maccheroni Republic! Continue reading
I can’t believe I’m already heading into the end of the spring semester of my second year here at USC. It’s hard to think that just two years ago around this time I was committing to USC–and looking back, I’ll say that it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made!
It’s so hard to believe that I am already almost halfway done with my time at USC as an undergraduate student. The time really does seem to fly by. Looking back over my past two years at this wonderful university, I realized I honestly could not imagine myself anywhere else.
Unlike some people at USC, I was not born and raised a Trojan. Both of my parents went to small schools in the Dallas, Texas area, and the idea of going out to college in California seemed quite daunting. When April rolled around, and it was time to make my decision on where I was to spend the next four years! I was debating between USC, Vanderbilt, University of Texas at Austin, and Washington University in St. Louis.
Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! I just got back from Hawaii for spring break which was amazing and it’s definitely hard to get back into work mode after that, but this week I wanted to share about what made me choose USC. Choosing college is by far the most difficult decision I had faced at that time, and it’s a huge commitment to choose somewhere for four years, but USC not only lived up to my expectations but far exceeded them.
At the end of the last day before spring break, I headed to one of the most popular spots in Los Angeles: Santa Monica! One of my favorite activities when I head off campus is to simply walk around/window shop and of course grab something to eat.
I just got home for Spring Break last night, and I’m so excited to be blogging from Dallas, Texas for the first time in a while. I’m so happy to be back in Dallas for the week, especially since I haven’t been home in a long time considering the fact that I spent the majority of my Christmas break in Antarctica. I’m also glad to be able to spend time in Dallas since I’ll be studying abroad in Rome through the Viterbi Overseas Program for the majority of my summer.
