California is a very unique place especially LA where you can basically find anything that you could possibly want. Here at USC I know that I can walk a mile to the staple center, take a twenty minute Uber to the Santa Monica pier, and take a five hour scenic car ride with some friends to Mammoth Mountain. Like my …

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 …

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 …

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 …

I had the opportunity to travel to Antarctica for two weeks over winter break with a program called Students on Ice, which is based …
