Sprouts Superiority

  Slowly but surely I am becoming good at feeding myself. Eating in the dorms was (perhaps surprisingly) very complex. The decision of where to grab lunch on the Hill almost always involved a series a calculations that included things like the number of stairs on the way to the dining hall, salad bar choices,…

My new favorite cafe!

As a UCLA student, many of us drink tons of coffee (especially during the ever-so-rapidly approaching finals week)! Since coming here, I think I’ve really learned how to distinguish a really good cup of coffee from a bad one. So naturally, my life was changed when I made my first trip to Urth Caffe. Urth…

A Bookworm’s Dream

  At UCLA you will do a lot of reading.  Whether you are an English Major or an Engineer taking your General Education Writing 2 Class, you can expect to read at UCLA.  To some this may sound like a dream come true, to others this may be a nightmare!  No matter your response, at…

Food Truck Feast

I think most Bruins can agree that food is a HUGE part of the college experience. Whether it’s eating in our top rated dining halls or going out in Westwood eating is something UCLA is all about. Tuesday night I had the chance to go to a food truck event in Santa Monica. Food trucks…

Pizza Quotas

  In the midst of furiously editing a paper I was writing yesterday, I decided to take a break from using my brain to go grab some dinner. My friend Josephine and I took a walk over to Lyon’s seventh arrondissement where we decided on eating at a pizza place where we had gone earlier…

Dreaming of a taco

Since the day I got here, I have been dreaming of eating a taco. A salty, beautiful carne asada soft taco with maybe some guacamole and a side of rice and beans. Even thinking about it now is making my heart swell in anticipation (I go home in about a month to be reunited with my long-lost…

Spring Break…it’s Good to be Home!

  Spring Break can some times seem like the eye of the storm.  On one side of break we have finals from Winter Quarter.  On the other side we have the entirety of Spring Quarter.  This one short week is the only thing that comes between each 11 weeks!  That being said, it is one of the…

Eatery on Lindbrook

I finally got to go out to Westwood last weekend after finishing all of my midterms. It was an exciting day for me, not only because I had finished my exams, but also because I got to meet one of my brother’s friends from Hawaii. Until last weekend, I had only contacted him through email…

Miss Foodie

    Although UCLA has AMAZING dorm food, as our dining halls have been ranked #1 in the nation several times, I like to explore other good eateries in town once in a while. Being a huge foodie myself, I like to walk down to Westwood or anywhere around campus to find new places to…

De-stressing weekend :)

Last weekend was such a fabulous, great, and wonderful weekend! I finished all my first midterms last week, and that meant that I got to enjoy the whole weekend without worrying about left over midterms!! Thursday night I slept right away after I got home, in order to catch up on my lack of sleep…

Princeton Ly – Food

Around UCLA, we are blessed with many gourmet yet affordable dining options. I recently had the chance to try a few of them. In Westwood proper, Five Guys opened just a month or two ago. They are famous for their customizable burgers, and also offer hot dogs and fries. I personally like our neighborhood In-N-Out…

Remedy for the End of Finals- Mother’s Cooking

  Now that finals are finally over we can all finally start to enjoy the beginning of our Spring Break. I have always said that Spring Break is such a tease– it really is. We get one week off and then it’s time to hit the books again. This Spring Break I hope to really…
