Hey friends! As I mentioned in my previous post (read the details about my rad summer here), I’ve had quite a hectic thirteen weeks filled with adventures and traveling. I’ve been lucky enough to visit North Carolina for ultimate frisbee nationals, live in China for a month and a half while conducting research, and spend a week in the incredible Canadian rockies …

I wake up in the morning feeling like… Not gonna lie, I wake up in the morning feeling like I want nothing more for the sun to set so I can go back to sleep for another 8 hours and not feel like melting in the hot Texas heat. But no matter, I roll out of bed around 7:00 AM …

If I could capture the essence of this summer, it would be something like this: That ladies and gentlemen, is Microsoft’s ex CEO Steve Ballmer (the new CEO Satya Nadella is just as cool BTW). And that energy and enthusiasm, has left a lasting impression at Microsoft. Needless to say, interning for Microsoft is HYPE. I can’t even begin to …

There really is nothing like home. But I know what you’re thinking, “What is a Porterville?”. Well, it’s a sauna that traps 50,000 people somewhere between the bustling metropoles famously known as Bakersfield and Fresno. Here the oranges are abundant and entertainment involves watching tourists on their way to the Sequoias trying to adapt to the smell of manure. But really, I …

Through my fraternity, I was fortunate enough to become friends with Craig, a film major from Minnesota. When Craig invited some mutual friends from Chicago and me to his house …

Students take two classes that count …

Hello (current and future) Trojan family members! This summer has definitely not gone as expected. Initially, I was all lined up to intern at this small Austin company that teaches people how to install solar panels. Sounds really cool, right? Don’t get me wrong, it might have been really cool. But it definitely wasn’t fun, or a good use of …
