A Whirlwind of a Quarter

  This has been a busy couple of weeks! The end of the quarter is finally in sight and I cannot wait for this marathon to be over! All that said, it has been a spectacular quarter so far.  I have been taking 4 of the most interesting classes that I have ever taken at…

Goals for Winter ’13

It’s a new quarter, and what better time to set some goals in addition to those New Year’s Resolutions?  After a wonderfully restful two and a half weeks spent in Vancouver with family, it’s time to get back in the groove of things.  I’m particularly excited about a few things coming up this quarter, including…

Hakuna Matata

During this three-day weekend I had the pleasure to watch one of my all-time favorite movies ever- The Lion King. I had missed it so much. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I watched it. The Lions King is such a beautiful movie– if you haven’t seen it I recommend you watch…

Hopefully everything has worked out like I hoped, but sometimes once syllabi…

Back to the Beginning

  Hello all! It’s the beginning of the quarter again and Week 1 is in full swing. I want to start by saying I hope everyone had a great break. It was much needed and greatly appreciated, but now its time to get back to work. Over the next week, I’ll be focusing on my…

Princeton Ly – New Beginnings

Happy New Year, dear reader. I hope you had a refreshing break (if you were indeed lucky enough to have one at all!) full of family and friends. One of the benefits of being in college is that the quarter ends before Christmas vacation, meaning that there is not much bothering you once school lets…

Schedule Planning

Decisions. Decisions. As soon as the schedule for winter quarter classes comes out, deciding what to take and when to take a class becomes a seemingly cumbersome process. I thought, this shouldn’t take me long, I’m a third year now, shouldn’t I have limited options of what classes to take? Wrong. In fact, even now…
