Take advantage of what your professors offer you!

This past week, TV Bob could bring a few students with him to an Emmys nominee reception, so I immediately signed up to go. I had no idea what this event was going to be, or who was going to be there, but I still signed up. Attending large events like this offered me so […]

Living Out West

I want to highlight an aspect of this city’s culture that stands out to me. There is a mindset that many people living out west seem to have in common and it’s a combination of being both relaxed and productive.

A New Way to Get Around a New City

After moving to Los Angeles, I quickly realized how environmentally-friendly this city is. You’ll see many Tesla’s on the highway, and don’t be shocked if you’re handed a paper straw at a restaurant. And in case you didn’t know: plastic bags cost ten cents extra in the state of California. Los Angeles has significantly decreased […]

LA’s Healthy Food Agenda

I am not going to lie. I come from a family of unhealthy eaters. We eat whatever we want, whenever we want. Everyone always tells me “it will catch up with you someday”. Well for my parents, that wasn’t until their late 40s. So, I have some time to enjoy my sweets and greasy foods. […]
