Summer travels in Asia

What an incredible summer it has been!  Over the past few months, I have embarked upon 14 flights, trodden the soils of six nations, crossed many time zones, and enjoyed countless foreign delicacies.  It has been a journey of journeys, one embedded in another, all of them combined to give me the incredible experience that…

Summer break addition: research life

Hi there, so as I told you before that I am starting to do research this summer at one of the professors in the Bio-Engineering department. I want to tell you a little bit about how it going so far. As a new researcher, I usually shadow the grad student that I will be working…

The amazing Spider-Man!!

For some of you, I’m sure you were able to get a chance to go to the midnight screening of Spider-Man, but unfortunately I wasn’t one of those lucky people. I couldn’t imagine the line and the crowd for it, so I decided to wait until the weekend to watch it. It was a lot…

Museums!

  I am now officially into deep summer. I’ve spent more time watching British TV than doing anything else (except for maybe staring off into space), and my eating habits have gone from semi-regular to completely feral. Needless to say, I’m enjoying myself. Last week, I was lucky enough to break from my cycle of…

Gettysburg

On my way home from camp last weekend, I visited Gettysburg for the first time. I was really, really excited to see it! I absolutely love learning about the Civil War and will admit to watching Ken Burns Civil War Documentary at home for fun. I had a rather short visit since my sister was…

Chancellor’s Residence

So, it is officially summer for me, but I don’t think I’ve quite gotten used to it yet. Being away from UCLA is hard – there’s just too much fun stuff to do there! (for example:) Right before I left school, I was lucky enough to go to an event at the chancellor’s residence. There…

Summer Camp

As an after finals celebration, I ventured across country to work at Woodward, a gymnastics and action sports summer camp. I am currently in charge of 17 girls overnight, plus another couple dozen in the gym. I have worked in the California location but this is my first time working at the Pennsylvania location. I…
