A Busy Weekend

Hello and happy Monday! I’m still resting up from the super busy week. Hopefully I can get properly rested before camping next weekend.

SF Pride Weekend!

Hey there! It’s been a pretty busy weekend. On Friday, Airware officially moved out of its site and into a new, fancier one. I did no work. I spent all day moving and helping other people move. The internet shut off at 3 and I went home shortly after that.

Coffee Fix

Hi there, It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been working super hard this term. TA’ing takes a lot out of my schedule but my predicament has gotten easier since I stopped having six hours of volleyball every week. Now I can pick which time I spend on exercise, so I can power through my homework and then do a one-hour HIIT workout at 10pm. That’s what I did last night. I’m very sore, so today I get an hour of yoga instead.

Day 5

Day 5: Wednesday, Mar 23 I’m really tired today. There was noise in the common area until midnight. Jenny keeps her toothbrush in a crinkly supermarket bag and she woke me up at midnight (and again at 4:30) trying to brush her teeth. Plus we can’t close our window to the common area, so we hear when the kitchen staff starts preparing breakfast at 4am. Ugh. I need sleep.

Peru Day 1

Hello everyone! I just got back from the Caltech Y’s Alternative Spring Break trip to Peru. The Y is an organization that used to be connected to the YMCA but is no longer; they handle a lot of volunteer coordination and camping trips. Every year the Y organizes a service-based trip overseas during spring break. This year, we’re volunteering at mobile clinics in the outskirts of Lima with an organization called Medlife. The next 7 posts will be direct transcripts of my travel journal from that trip, with some additional explanation provided in italics.

Being a Lady

Happy International Women’s Day! Today is a good day to reflect on all the positive things in my life as a woman. It’s also a good day to think about the things that stand in my way, and in the way of all women.

Kit Day :D

Hello! So as I’ve mentioned in many previous posts, I’m a Health Advocate in training here at Caltech. That means I receive my EMR (emergency medical responder) certification and equipment for free in exchange for being “on call” in my house all the time. Lots of Health Ads are premed. Many are not. I’m not, I just like to be well educated.

Food, Weather, and other Small Talk

It’s cold. Let’s be clear. When I say it’s cold, I don’t mean like… East Coast cold. It’s about 50°F outside. We don’t have snow; we don’t even have rain most of the time. It’s windy and chilly and I kinda want to just sit at home with hot food and not worry about things.

Freezing Techers

Hi there! It’s Monday, which means we just finished the first weekend of winter term, which means we just got back from ski trip! Most houses have a ski trip. Ruddock, Ricketts, Page, and Fleming all had theirs this weekend. I was on the Page ski trip to Mammoth, which was really fun.
