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…

Portugal. The Man

Before I start let me just say that I usually do not like live music. It’s loud, it’s hard to understand, and it’s almost always stuff I don’t know the words to (the only songs I know by heart are Love the Way You Lie by Eminem and Rhianna and Glamorous by Fergie). The other…

Spring Sing

Remember a little over a month ago when I wrote a post about camping out to buy Spring Sing tickets? Well after lots of waiting, Spring Sing finally came! The big night was last Friday and it was so much fun. We got there fifteen minutes ahead of time (yippee, reserved seating!) and all got…

Camping out for Spring Sing tickets

Spring Sing is just around the corner! Spring Sing is one of UCLA’s oldest and fondest traditions. It is a huge talent show that takes place every spring quarter, and it is seriously one of the most incredible things that UCLA produces. There are singers, dancers, and bands that each perform a single song for…

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…

Princeton Ly – Upcoming

In the next week or so there are going to be two awesome events taking place at UCLA. The first is Yuki Akaishi‘s Senior Recital in the Jan Popper Theatre of Schoenberg Hall on Saturday, April 21st starting at 8 PM. I have had the distinct pleasure of witnessing Yuki’s maturation as a musician firsthand…

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…

Princeton Ly – UCLA Swag

Hello there! So I recently ran across a spate of UCLA-themed hip-hop references in the last week or so and thought I would share them with you all. The first is a tribute to the greatest UCLA basketball player of all time, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, then Lewis Alcindor: Yes, that is the rapper Twista you see…

Advice from a nonAdviser: An Essay

For all of you future, present, and past Bruins out there following this blog, and of course for all of you nonBruins who have a fantastically passionate admiration for UCLA and are thus following this blog, I write to you with advice. I know what you’re thinking, what could she possibly know that I don’t…

Post Potter Depression, a phenomenon

Ladies and Gentlemen of this particular audience, It has come to my attention that the world at large is experiencing what we at UCLA have referred to as P.P.D or Post Potter Depression. See video to understand more. However, I must say to this audience, fear not this fictitious void of fantasy and imagination. There…

Spring Sing!!!

For the last four months I have had the amazing opportunity to work alongside some of UCLA’s most talented and wonderful comedians, as a fellow member of the sketch comedy writing and performance group, Company. All of our hard work and long hours finally paid off on Friday when we got to perform in front…

I ♥ UCLA Week

It has been a wonderful week of Bruin spirit and pride!  “I ♥ UCLA” Week is a once-a-year opportunity for students to show their UCLA pride and get freebies and giveaways at the same time for doing so.  This year, there have been a series of events promoting Bruin spirit, including a Car Smash in Wilson…
