i took a lot of L's this week haHA | fyu #6

Friday, February 16, 2018


Hi all,


This week I somehow forgot a lot of things. I forgot that in order to go to wake up in time for class, you have to go to sleep at least seven hours earlier. I forgot that if you want to get good grades in class, you have to, like, put in effort. And I forgot what it feels like to feel unmotivated.

making gratefulness a habit | fyu #4

Thursday, February 1, 2018


Greetings from the outdoor seating area of Muir Woods Coffeehouse, otherwise affectionately known as M.O.M. (Middle Of Muir)! Since my classes are mostly in Muir College this quarter, I’ve found myself more frequently joining the legions of students who take advantage of its fluffy sofas, comfy wicker chairs, and productive coffee shop vibe. Yesterday I spent two hours holed up at one of the tables, banging out my Spanish homework while nursing one of their specialty drinks--a Polar Bear, which is a white mocha swirled with caramel and peanut butter. (Another thing: I’ve discovered that UCSD has at least six different coffee shops around campus. It’s dangerous.)

happiness is a lot like french toast | fye #3

Happiness is a lot like eating French toast. I’ve had it three times in the past four weeks (no joke), and nothing beats the feeling of cutting into the soft, warm bread with my fork, watching the syrup ooze into the whipped mascarpone topping, knowing that in just a few seconds, I get to roll the sweetness around on my tongue.

FRESHMAN YEAR UPDATES #2

Friday, January 19, 2018


As I write this, it is nearly sometime in the wee hours of Friday morning. I won’t have time later this weekend to write this, which is why I’m doing it now.

FRESHMAN YEAR UPDATES #1

Saturday, January 13, 2018


Technically this isn’t Freshman Year Updates #1, because I’ve already gone through fall quarter (whoops), but over break I decided that, in order to make blogging a consistent weekly thing, and in order to be able to remember all the things that are happening, I’m going to do something similar to my Senior Year Updates posts of last school year. Except this is going to be weekly, not monthly. So yay! You get a play-by-play.
