Breaking Routine in Downtown Los Angeles

Fifty cents is all it costs to get a USC student from campus to the heart of downtown via the Dash. I’m generally a fan of public transportation — people watching, the ability to text, and no responsibility for the commute sounds good to me. Sure,...

San Francisco USC v. Stanford Weekender

Summer Camp Curiosities — Week 3

Last week I ran Splash Camp which is basically a group of 5 to 12 year olds. It may not seem like a huge age span, but it is. You have kids that need help going to the bathroom and kids who want to talk about...

This is the second post in my weekly series, Funny Summer Camp Stories. Surf camp has sadly come to an end, but the highs (and lows) are now well documented. If you missed week one, be sure to read it and come back! I’ve also written...

My 2012 Summer Sandcastle Pail List

I don’t care if it’s almost halfway through my summer, I still have exactly eight weeks left before I head back up to the University of South Central Southern California in Los Angeles to become a full time student, part time zombie–thanks to the LSAT, my love for LA...
