Senior Year: Fall Quarter: The Beginning

After a difficult junior year and three months abroad, I am finally back in a rhythm. Kind of. Like at the end of junior year this past June, I’ve still going through a lot of change. And I’m only about half way through fall quarter of my senior year.

But I’m a planner. So even with it being so early on in the year, I’m already working on setting goals and finding opportunities in preparation for the end of this year. Note, I’m one of those crazy seniors who does a lot. I pray you all don’t get overwhelmed with the list I’m about to share with you:

New Series: Senior Secrets

A few nights ago, it hit me: I’m living my senior year of college and things are different. Doors are opening, others are closing. I’m asked big life questions on the daily.  The reality that it’s my senior year is hitting my friends and me harder everyday. So I’ve decided to write about it.  Read More.

In the Midst of Transitions

In less than a week, I leave for the Philippines…which is where I’ll be for the entirety of this summer. The reality of that statement scares me. I still have yet to pack and there are so many people I want to hang out with, catch up with, etcetera before I leave. But knowing me, once I’ll leave, I’ll only be looking forward.

Lately, my blog has been filled with a lot of “series” posts. There was my “Humans of Seattle Coffee Shops” series, which I put on hiatus because Spring Quarter kept me busy. A few weeks ago, I started a “Start Up Saturdays/Sundays” series, where I introduce an innovation that I came across during the week. I have also been writing more restaurant/event reviews since I’ve been going to a lot of new places lately.

But there’s a lot more going on in my life that I haven’t had a chance to write about so here’s a post dedicated to some of the transitions I’ve been going through lately. Read More.

More than Halfway There

My best friend, Robert and I freshman year (top) and this year (bottom).

Last week, I had my quarterly academic advising appointment. Advising appointments usually involve me working out what classes I will be taking with my advisor. However, since this quarter is my last quarter taking classes in Matteo Ricci College, the humanities college, my advisor told me to apply for graduation by the end of the quarter. Then it dawned me: I’m going to be a college senior next year.

It feels like just yesterday when I was navigating Seattle University’s campus for the first time as a freshman. It hasn’t even been that long since I started high school (especially since I graduated after junior year).

I’m already considered young to be a junior in college. I’ll be graduating before I turn 21. Despite all this, I somehow calculated a way to graduate a quarter early. Read More.

2048: The Latest Stressful or Calming Game Craze?


Finals week is long over at my university, so I think it’s finally okay to publicly share this game. Most of my friends encountered this addicting online game during finals week but for those who have no idea what I’m talking about, let me introduce you.

A few weeks ago, I found a link to this game called 2048 on my Tumblr dashboard. The game’s simple. Use your arrow keys to move the tiles. When two tiles of the same number touch, they turn into one! The objective? Get the 2048 tile.

It sounds easy at first but honestly, it took me several days of trying out different strategies before I finally beat the game. Read More.
