I’m back in Houston after spending a fun and relaxing week in Maryland and Virginia Beach. :)
On my first day there, I celebrated my cousin’s graduation at this huge party with relatives and friends. The night was filled with dining, dancing and catching up with family.
Later that night, my newly graduated cousin took my cousins and me out to a lounge in Baltimore to celebrate at an after party with his college friends–and then to a late night diner for some munchies!
After a few days in Maryland, a whole lot of us drove 4 hours to have some R&R in Virginia Beach. For 3 days, my cousins, aunts, uncles and I spent time on the beach and explored the VB pier.
I still am on vacation from work—so I’m just hanging around Houston, and recovering from my exciting week. I’ll be celebrating the 4th of July with some new friends at a Crawfish Boil/BBQ pool party. Hope y’all enjoy your holiday!
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!
It’s crazy to think that I began applying to college almost three years ago. I still remember spending hours looking at college websites, admissions blogs and reddit pages to try to get a sense of what college is ACTUALLY like. To help you get through these stressful times, here are a few tips that I wish I had listened to. Hopefully, these will ease your worries and maybe even make the process more enjoyable!?
