To the Person Leaving Letters All Over the Library

Hello! I just have a short post for today: To the person leaving letters all over the library, I just want to say Thank You. Thank you for making other people’s days a little bit brighter, especially since it’s finals week. Thank you for proving that people still write in cursive (remember when we were […]

SNOW!!

  So how about this weather? Not too long ago did it begin to snow and become a freezing temperature. In California, our cold weather is about 65 F, maybe 54 F, and people bring out the scarves and jackets/coats. According to my roommate Mayu, that’s hot; “I would be sweating”, she says.

Empathy for lefties in a righty-dominated world

My Newfound Appreciation for Saturdays….

Today is a Saturday. What I just realized is that Saturdays are my catch-up days. It’s a nice surprise to wake up in bed around  3, realize that I dont have anywhere to be, and I dont have any person or thing demanding my immediate attention, and lay there reflecting, just thinking, like I havent been able […]
