Spring Break went by pretty fast! I can’t believe it’s already time to go back to school ;~;.
Warning: This post contains a large amount of pictures… In case you’re limited on bandwidth.
My boyfriend and I took a road trip out of town on Monday. We left at 2AM to drive up to Yosemite National Park and got there at around 8AM. We went through two hiking trails (Artist Point and Lower Yosemite Falls). Artist Point was the harder hike between the two because we had to climb up the mountain to have a grand view of Yosemite compared to the view at parking-level. Lower Yosemite Falls was just as awesome in a way that we got to see the waterfall up close! After finishing these two hiking trails, we started making our way to San Francisco… Where I was driving for a small portion and got to try out the automatic gear shifter on the car we rented (Chevrolet Malibu) for funsies.
A few days late but winter quarter is finally over! This quarter was pretty hectic with the heavy core class load, but I’m glad to have one of the hardest quarters out of the way. Despite of the busy scheduling, I still found some time to do things (see my previous post about finding my inner chi).
What does this post have to do with finding my actual inner chi? Eh, probably not much at all but I just wanted to use the title just cause. This quarter did a really good job in keeping me busy. But despite of my busy scheduling, I still try to find time to do things that keeps my mind away from all of the schoolwork. Long story short, this post is about the good little things happening this quarter that makes me sane (to some extent).
Happy March! Once again, I can’t believe how fast time flies! Especially since finals week is around two weeks away. I actually like the term being 10 weeks long, mostly because I don’t have the attention span for the 16-week terms anymore. The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy and the same will go for the next two weeks, yaaay.
I have a project for my java, database, and telecommunications class due soon. The most interesting project would probably be the telecommunications one where I have to set up a website from an Ubuntu server using Amazon Web Services. I’m a bit over halfway done; I just need to figure out to set up the mysql/php registration form from terminal.
Class registration for the spring quarter came along earlier last week. I signed up for Interactive + Responsive Web Development (yaaay), Intro to Systems Analysis + Design, Managerial Finance II, and Principles to Management. The course load doesn’t look too bad and I’m excited to finally take a web development class! But first things first: surviving this quarter. Despite of taking three of the hardest core classes at once, I’m managing the best I can given the circumstances.
My boyfriend and I had a FriDate eating sushi and watching Kingsman. This sushi place is much better than the previous one we went to in December because the fish:rice ratio was on point and they had uni! My favorite “roll” throughout the night was the Jen Jen Roll (spicy crab and avocado wrapped with salmon) because it had no rice. We enjoyed watching Kingsman (but moreso my boyfriend because of the whole gentleman/suits theme) ☺.
