A Bittersweet Time of Year

  Just last week I watched so many of my best friends graduate at commencement. This time of the year is so bittersweet because it reminds you of the great times you’ve had with those friends who are graduating and you know that they will do wonderful things in the future, but it’s so sad…

Changing my graduation plans

It’s hard to believe that this very day three years ago, I had just finished my first round of finals as a freshman at UCLA.  It has been a long and hard (but rewarding) journey since then, and I can barely believe how far I’ve come. In September, I began the quarter with the end…

Good bye Spring, HELLO SUMMER!!!

Yup, you read it right people. I am officially saying good bye to Spring quarter, and I’m saying a BIG HELLO to Summer!!! 🙂 Just turned in my last lab notebook and lab report, which officially marks the end of my Spring classes. Woohoooo!! Spring quarter as for many of us – or at least…

Just the Beginning

This upcoming week is my last week at UCLA…it is so eerie just to type that out. Just three years ago, I was just about to graduate high school and discover college land. I was so scared. Three years later, I am in the same position. I am about to graduate college and moving on…

Celebrating my Brother’s Graduation

This past week, I celebrated my younger brother’s graduation from Santa Ana College. He earned his AA Degree while also getting his high school diploma. I am so immensely proud of him!!!! It reminded me of how fast time flies. I still remember like it was yesterday when I used to walk my brother to…

Princeton Ly – At Long Last

It’s strange to think that my time at UCLA as an undergraduate will end in just ten short weeks. As I have said before, it’s been an amazingly fun run. Here’s to one more great quarter! To start out, this is what I am up to in Spring 2012: Classes: The details are still being…

Working for My Dreams

    Those who know me know that I am constantly busy either with school or work. That’s the typical life of a college student. Either we are working to pay off our fees or we are studying/writing papers. We are constantly busy. This upcoming June I graduate but beforehand, during the last few days…

The Beginning of a New Year

  It is almost the end of 2011 and 2012 is almost here. It’s the beginning of new year which means the beginning of  shifting your focus to new goals and accomplishments for the year. Here is to an amazing 2012 for all of us! 2011 has brought a lot of amazing experiences for me….

Finals Week at UCLA

A week before finals week, I unfortunately got sick with Strep throat. That same week I had two papers do, a project, and also a final (back to back days). So I had to deal with deadlines and sickness all at the same time. Thankfully for me though, I had almost finished with all of…
