The Advantages of Switching Your Major

kristen-2012 Viterbi Class Leave a Comment

For the first three semesters at USC, I was a biomedical engineering major planning to study diseases that disproportionately affect the developing world. I was really excited to be learning things that could help me make a practical difference in the world once I’m out of school and looking for something to do with my life. I’ve always thought that …

Pondering

So I guess the title says it all. I’m not so sure what to write this week, and my mind has been racing everywhere lately. I guess I’ll try to paint a picture of what I’ve been doing and maybe that will give some insight to you, the reader, on myself. So over the weekend I really didn’t do all …

Birthday Surprises

One of the things I’ve loved most about sophomore year so far is the way my friends celebrate birthdays. Every birthday is a surprise party. Of course, it was easy at first. No one suspected it. The evening of a friend’s birthday wasn’t suspicious and you could fill his or her apartment with people without drawing too much attention. After …

What to Say, What to Say

To be completely honest, I’m at a bit of a loss for words; however, I’ll try my best to crank something out here. This past week has been pretty chill. I don’t have any tests coming up nor do I have much work left until finals. As such, my reward has been playing more and more xbox. Since Call of …

Tonight we’re making dinner and having a bunch of friends over. I’m really excited – I love my friends and I love good food and I love the weekend! We’re making guacamole for starters and enchiladas for the main course. A little bit of chicken, cheese, corn tortillas, sauce, olives, and we’re good to go! The ability to have “dinner …

Too Much of Nothing

So I ended up doing a large amount of sitting around and not really accomplishing much this weekend. It was actually pretty nice, albeit somewhat disappointing – I bought Seasons 1-5 of Entourage of DVD and didn’t get them until Monday sadly. Oh well, I can watch next weekend! 🙂 On Thursday I (of course) attended EA Sports Game Night …
