Back to the Books- but in the sunniest quarter of the year!

First off a tiny bit about me! I am a second year history major and education minor. I am originally from Dana Point, CA. My goal is to become a teacher (k-12) and I absolutely love working with kids. Fortunately UCLA has given me the opportunity to get super involved! I also work for Undergraduate…

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…

BMES End of Year Banquet

Last Friday, Maggiano’s Little Italy was swarmed with Bruins; and I’m talking Bio-Engineer from Bruins!! Yup, we all got fancy and glammed up for BMES (Bio-Medical Engineer Society) End of Year Banquet that night; and it was so much fun! It was a great way to end the school year, right before finals week. There…

Spring Quarter Classes

At UCLA, we have the first two weeks of the quarter to change class times, sections or perhaps classes in general. Now that we are well into third week, schedules are finalized. This quarter I am taking four classes. 1)      Phy Sci: Continuation of the core series for my major. This is the last class…

Spring Ball

One of my favorite things about spring quarter is the start of spring IM sports. I always make sure that I am on as many IM teams as possible, and in spring that means softball. When the weather warms up it is only natural to get restless. It becomes difficult to concentrate on studying or…

Happy Easter everyone!!

Easter marks the end of the first week of Spring quarter, and it was such a good weekend!! At the end of my first week, I already loved all my three classes. I know what you’re thinking, it is way too early to say that I love my classes, especially since it’s not midterms week…

The Start of Spring Quarter

Every time I start a new quarter it amazes me how fast time flies. Seriously, the quarter system is no joke. 10 weeks from now I will be wondering where the quarter went. To prepare efficiently for a quarter you have to manage your time effectively every day. Not a single day goes by during…

Last minutes before the end of my Spring Break!

As I’m writing this, the clock is ticking to count down the end of my Spring Break; and I’m pretty sad that Spring Break has gone by super fast 😦 In less than 24 hours, I will start my Spring quarter.. However, since I’m still in Spring Break now technically. Let me just say, I…

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…

Recapping my Quarter

Wow, Spring Quarter flew by! I can say that I truly enjoyed my personal and educational experiences throughout the quarter. I took classes such as Sociology 133 (Collective Behavior), Soc 185 (American Society) and Soc 174 (Family). All three courses were challenging and enjoyable. I have to say my favorite was Soc 185, not only…
