Right after the prefrosh left us, Easter weekend stopped by. (Personally, I think everyday should be Easter! :D) Some of my friends from the Caltech Christian Fellowship (CCF) and Life Church Fellowship (LCF) spent our Saturday evening at the Union Station Homeless Services Center, making food for and eating with the residents there. We got to talk to some really amazing people and hear some of their stories.
Coming from the buckle of the Bible belt (Dallas, TX), I was worried initially about the way Christians would be treated out here on the west coast. We’re supposed to be persecuted (John 15:18), though, so I wasn’t about to run away. Turns out, talking to Techers about my faith so far has been surprisingly nice. While some people disagree with my world view, they’re willing to hear me out. I’ve also found out through people’s questions that there a number of unfortunate misconceptions, and it’s always great to clear those up. The most interesting conversation I’ve had so far has got to be one I had with some friends while we were in Vegas… but that’s a story for another time.
Anyway, so we were serving some food for the soul. Here are some pictures, of course!
Depending on the house and style of room that you choose, rooms can look pretty different at Caltech. Generally, the south houses (Blacker, Dabney, Fleming, Ricketts) have similar options, and the north houses (Lloyd, Page, Venerable) are similar in their room styles as well. Rooms in Bechtel and Avery tend to look different from the north and south house rooms as well. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing an example of what a Fleming (south house) single generally looks like, and how I’ve chosen to decorate mine.
Now, based on the title you may be wondering what kind of story this will be. As you will soon find out, it’s a story of adventure born out of the pure, dark chaos that fills the minds of sleep deprived Caltech undergrads.
I’m starting a new miniseries on the blog – Film Club! Each episode, I’ll share a short clip from a popular piece of media, and then completely dissect and overanalyze it, because let’s face it, I’m doing it in my head already anyway. You say “buzzkill.” I say “science.” We’ll kick things off with a clip from Gravity Falls I discussed a bit in my previous post: Season 2 Episode 12, A Tale of Two Stans. If somehow you haven’t watched this show yet (?!)… spoilers incoming!
