Frankie Frankie Leave a Comment

Before winter break even started, two of my friends, Eric and Peter, approached me with an experience of a lifetime: road tripping from my state, Maryland, back to school. At first, I was a little hesitant, but I eventually agreed since this was an once in a lifetime experience. Throughout winter break, I did minimal planning while Eric prepared the …

I actually spent the majority of my time in Europe visiting my brother who studies at the University of Copenhagen! On our trip, we visited Germany, the Czech Republic, and Hungary, seeing Berlin, Prague, and Budapest along the …

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your winter breaks – I know I certainly did.  I spent about four weeks at home catching up with family and friends.  Some quick highlights of my break are that I got to see two hockey games with seats on the glass – Anaheim Ducks vs. San Jose Sharks on New Years Eve …

Happy Spring semester! I have so much to look forward to for this last spring semester here at USC, and it’s definitely going to be bittersweet. I have a full schedule of chemical engineering classes, I added a German language class (though I already went abroad to Germany), and I am continuing with my research! It’s going to be a …

Favorite TV Show: The Newsroom

Ian Ian Leave a Comment

I’ll keep this one short and to the point. I am a huge movie fan, and by the transitive property a huge HBO fan. A couple of years ago HBO came out with the series The Newsroom and I latched on pretty quickly. Disclaimer: I’m not a TV critic, and my taste (however awesome) may not align with yours. For those of you …

Hey everyone! I hope you had a great break. I do have to admit that I was a little envious of winter breaks like Sam’s, where she went to India, or Sarah who went to Antarctica but I had a blast as well. I went back home to Boston for the break and had about three weeks at home. You …
