Lazy afternoons in Westwood

Despite that I don’t have class on Fridays, I do schedule work and volunteering in the afternoon.  Today is one of few rare Friday afternoons that are free of meetings and mandatory obligations so I have time to sit back and relax (which actually means “study”) or take a lazy stroll around Westwood to see…

Westwood LIVE in Bruin Plaza

In addition to livening up Westwood every third Thursday of the month, Westwood LIVE was in Bruin Plaza yesterday making sure as many Bruins as possible know about this wonderful USAC initiative to bring more Bruins into Westwood, our lovely little college town immediately south of the UCLA campus.  Westwood LIVE is meant to celebrate three…

Zero Week: no longer a Fall phenomenon!

Some of you may love the Fall quarter especially for its Week 0 (“zero week”) on top of the football season and great weather (it was 80ºF/26ºC this past weekend!), but luckily for us, this year we will have Week 0’s for all of our quarters. I love Week 0 because that’s when everyone is…

Thanksgiving Break

I have just had a stellar Thanksgiving break. Literally, I ate turkey among the stars. Kidding. I did have a ton of fun, though. The weekend began early because my only class on Wednesday was more of a fun hang-out sesh with the professor than a strict lecture, and the rest of my day included…

Mentor Mixer with ASC (and the rest of my Thursday night)

  Thursday night was a busy night for me (as Thursday nights tend to be). I got out of class at four and then had to head back to my room for an hour to gather my things, have a Reese’s, and surf the interwebs. I walked down to Broxton for the second Westwood Live…

Bruins in the Village

This past Thursday evening saw no less than hundreds of Bruins in Westwood at a great event titled “Bruins Night Out” hosted by CEC (Campus Events Commission) and General Representative 1 office.  It was incredible to see the streets packed with students eagerly seeking the myriad of deals that night, including free Diddy Riese cookies, buy…

Westwood Live!

On Thursday night I went to Westwood LIVE, which was essentially a giant block party that was filled with delicious food, fun art, and spectacular music (there were performances by previous winners of Spring Sing!).  It started at 6, and I got there around 6:40. Usually, events at UCLA are ridiculously over-crowded and you need…

Greasy Spoons

At the risk of making myself look like a ridiculous glutton, here’s another post on food. I think there is a soft spot in every guy’s heart for “greasy spoons”. You know what I’m talking about, right? Every town has one – I bet there were a few within walking distance of your high school…

Third Street Promenade

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to go shopping at Third Street Promenade. I had such an amazing time bonding with my roommates and shopping for cute clothes! One of the things that I love about UCLA is that it’s so close to so many attractive places to get away and have fun. There’s museums, movie…

Baikus

  It is my last day of summer, and instead of being out drinking Starbucks (what I should be doing), I am indoors packing all of my entire everything into trash bags. It is my fault. I waited and procrastinated until all my packing got squeezed into this one day. So, to de-stress I am…
