Hope that you have had a great week so far! I know I have! In my last blog, I promised you that I would upload some pictures from my road trip for spring break and let you know how it was, and I don’t like to break promises so here it goes. Continue reading
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!
Howdy everybody! It’s been a fun and relaxing Spring Break this past week and I just got back from Dallas this past Sunday. It was great to relax and hone my golf skills (or lack-thereof)! As it’s approaching April, I know a lot of y’all are making your final decisions for college, and I remember just how stressful that choice can be!
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.
My last spring break as an undergraduate. It is pretty surreal! As the weeks march towards graduation I keep reflecting on my experiences here at USC and can’t believe how fast college has flown by. Okay, enough of the nostalgia, it’s time to live in the moment and right now my Spring Break has just started. Continue reading
This week I wanted to write about my spring break plans for next week! It’s right around the corner! Now, after a long first half of the semester I am super excited to be visiting my brother in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. I haven’t seen my brother since Christmas, so it has been long overdue… Continue reading
I hope things are going well. I’m currently sitting in the Los Angeles International Airport, more affectionate known as LAX, waiting for my (delayed) flight home to Portland. On the bright side, it’s only delayed by 25 minutes, and that just gives me 25 more minutes to blog, right? Anyways, back to the reason I’m hanging out at LAX: I’m heading home for Spring Break 2014!
Hey guys! When I first heard of Engineers Without Borders as a freshman I was drawn in by the prospect to travel. But when I joined the club and had the opportunity to live in Honduras, I realized it was much more than just traveling with other engineers and working on projects. It is one thing to experience a region as a tourist, but you do not appreciate the beauty and subtle things that gives a city its identity. Living with the everyday Honduran family and working alongside Honduran workers, I gained a new appreciation for the town. I would even venture to say i enjoyed this more than staying at a nice hotel with full amenities. I realized we, Engineers without Borders, travel to these places not to live the same lifestyle we are accustomed to in California. We travel to learn culture other countries have to offer and in return we bring able hands to assist and coordinate quality projects to benefit a community. Continue reading
