Entourage

The title of this post says it all. This is a saga of my life which started in this way – I tried to order the show on ebay because I heard it was good. I was sent pirated DVDs, which discouraged me from the show. However, with my recent spike in free time, I borrowed the DVDs from a …

Third Eye Blind = Perfection

arianna-2012 Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Yesterday I saw Third Eye Blind, my all-time favorite band, in concert. I have seen them two times before, but I think that this was the best performance yet. They just released their new CD in August, and it was their first CD in six years. This was the first time I saw them after the new CD, Ursa Major …

Video Games

Since I haven’t done this already, I think I need to dedicate a post to video games. Why you might ask? Because they are definitely a major part of my life. They consume my free time, prevent me from studying (or as you might call it a “study break”), help relieve my stress from doing work as an engineer, and …

My place to hang out

Everyone has a place to go to just get away from it all. When it all seems be going South, there’s always that place or activity which seems to make everything seem, well, okay. I’ve preached before, and still do that college is about learning a balance. Work hard, play hard. How do I play hard, or better yet, how …

Samhain (A History of Halloween)

Happy Halloween everyone!!! This year, I am taking a class called “Ghost Stories.” Yes, there is a class at USC about ghosts. The class fulfills one of my general education requirements (category 5), and is also a lot of fun. My professor is very knowledgeable and the class is very interesting. Because it is Halloween, I feel the need talk …

Zombieland

I just saw Zombieland over the weekend with some friends and I must admit that I didn’t expect much from the movie. We’ve all seen movies like Dawn of the Dead, played video games like Dead Rising, and been through haunted houses. Usually it’s the same thing – zombies, death/destruction/fear, and nothing more. With Zombieland, however, something is different. What …

The Human Race

Last night This morning at midnight, I ran in the Nike Human Race. I know Evan S also ran the race {with a bunch of other people from the marathon team =)} . I ran the 10k, and the loop circled around the coliseum, campus, and downtown LA. It was really awesome to be around downtown LA, with the streets …

A Day in Los Angeles

My sister arrived on Friday night straight from Chicago. Unlike all of us hard working west coast students, my sister and all of my friends back in the Midwest (and on the east coast) have the magical week off called a fall break. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, fall break is like spring break, only in the …

Jane Goodall

Growing up, my mom would always read me stories about ‘the monkey lady’ who lived with chimps in Tanzania. I remember watching the television when she came on, and my mom even showing me movies about her. As a child,  I could never understand why someone would want to “live” with chimps her whole life, but my mother instilled in …

Guitar and Priscilla Ahn

I’ve been learning how to play the guitar for almost a year now, and I must say, I wish I had more time to practice. It’s encouraging to look back and remember when I could not for the life of me get my fingers to play a C chord, but then I listen to all of the great musicians I …
