As the school year is creeping around the corner, it’s time to do a summer recap! I would say this summer has been relaxing, insightful, and pure fun. To give you reason why, here are some activities I did this summer.
- Internship: This summer I completed my internship from the spring semester in Los Angeles. I interned at Dermalogica, a skin care company, where I spoke with professionals, learned new office and management skills, and picked up an independent project. My work was hybrid, so I also got the chance to complete work at different coffee shops. Some of my favorites in Korea Town are coffee signal, coffee MCO, café mak, and Sharp Specialty Coffee.
- Explored different cities in LA County: During the school year it is hard to find time to explore LA when you are doing homework every weekend. This summer I wanted to explore the surrounding areas of USC and branched out to other cities. I explored Santa Monica, Korea Town, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, Pasadena, Venice, and areas in the San Fernando Valley. We explored different restaurants, beaches, boba shops, etc.
- Went to Concerts: I am a huge concert goer and I love seeing DJs. So, I gathered a group of friends who like to go out and took them to their first DJ event! Some artists I saw this summer were Trivecta, Audien, Seven Lions, Nurko, and the Chainsmokers.
While I did not do much this summer, I would say I had an overall relaxing break from the school year. I spent a lot of time with friends and also spent a lot of time reflecting on my goals for this next year.
