We have just finished 10th week at UCLA, which is a momentous occasion, especially given that it’s Spring Quarter.  This means our next break is… SUMMER!!  This is generally what pulls most Bruins through the last stretch of finals week.  However, I was extremely lucky this quarter (unlike Winter Quarter) and all of my finals or final papers were due during 10th week, which means I am completely free during Finals Week!!  This leaves my opportunity to distract my fellow Bruins.  The obvious option for most people would be to start packing, get home, and get summer vacation started.  I’m a little different in this respect…

I decided to stay until Thursday of Finals week to enjoy all the benefits of UCLA in an academic-free environment.  This next week, I have the opportunity to enjoy all the activities and recreation of UCLA and Westwood without the constraint of homework and essays.  My year has come full circle, given this is how Zero Week functions at the very beginning of the year; now I have my very own Zero Week at the END of the year!  I’m excited to take advantage of Sunset Canyon Recreation Center, the John Wooden Center, Westwood dining, and everything else we love to do as Bruins.  Anyway, I’m very lucky to have this opportunity this year and it will be an excellent beginning to summer vacation.  Happy Summer and Go Bruins!!
