I love Southern California. I really do. But if there’s one thing that makes me forget that love rather easily, it’s the heat. I’ve yet to spend more than a single boiling summer in the SoCal area, and this year has been no different. Every summer, my family and I make the impossible journey back to Bangalore, India, where we’d lived …

Sometimes, I plan my school days around food. For example… “Okay, so, after I grab my warm breakfast from RTH Café, I’ll go to SAL for office hours until I finish the second homework question.

What’s up everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic Veteran’s day, I know I did. After a busy week of classes, I felt an itch to get off campus today and go someplace I’d never been before!
