Bye, Junior Year!

Hi everyone! Time sure flies by quickly. I am already done with my junior year of college and on my way to senior year. To sum up my junior year in one word, I think “rewarding” really ties it all together.

Clips from WILD ’17

Hi everyone! This past Friday, I attended my 5th WILD at the beautiful Brookings Quadrangle. WILD is the biggest social event/concert of the semester, presented by the Social Programming Board. It is free for all undergraduate students, and there are free pizza, Jimmy John’s, and soda for all. This year, the featured artist, Jason Derulo, came and performed his top hits!

A Day In the Life of Nancy

What’s up, everyone! Today, I would like to share with you all a day in Nancy’s life. Now I need to remind you that not every day of my life is going to be as awesome as this sounds, but this is a typical Monday for me.

Food Truck Tuesdays?

Hi guys! I have some huge gossip/news to share! There was a food truck on campus today for lunch. Yes, a food truck! Is this for real?? Rumor has it that this was a pilot project. If successful (which, judging from the gigantic line today), this might become a reoccurring event for EVERY Tuesday for the rest of the semester!

Familiarity in an Unfamiliar City

Hi everyone! I just returned from a fun trip to Las Vegas! The most unexpected thing happened there: I met up with a Wash U friend of mine, David, without planning at all. This shows that even though the world is gigantic, the “Wash U Bubble” is always home sweet home.

An Intimate Evening with The Occasionals

I spent yesterday evening volunteering at a fun event for my internship. In my last post, I mentioned that I am a Development and Fundraising intern at Angel Band Project. Last night, I attended “An Intimate Evening with The Occasionals,” which was this Mardi Gras themed fundraising concert at Joe’s Café with music, food, and drinks.

Its mission is to break the silence surrounding sexual and intimate partner violence and to provide healing for survivors through the power of music.

Year of the Rooster

Hi everyone! I spent this past weekend celebrating Chinese New Year here in St. Louis. Now, you might be wondering why I celebrated it a week late (since Chinese New Year was last week!)—this is because I spent the last week celebrating with family, so I spent this weekend celebrating with the greater St. Louis community. Hello, year of the rooster!

21st Birthday Dinner

Hi everyone! What better way is there to celebrate a birthday than going to Ibby’s? That’s right, I spent my birthday at my favorite place on campus: IBBY’s. And, I got the bananas foster while being surrounded by 18 friends. We had to split the table into two, but everyone was able to get their food and eat dessert. 🙂

My Old and New This Week (Ft. Bissinger’s Handcrafted Chocolatier)

Hi everyone! One goal I will try to set for myself this semester is to explore at least one new place each month and also go to an old, favorite place again. This past week, I went to two very special places that made me feel at home and happy. This was a great way to start off a brand new semester (with yummy food).

Rock Climbing & Food Journeys

Hi everyone! The awesome thing about reading week at the end of the semester is the extra days off from class. While this time is supposed to be used for studying, it is also perfect for procrastinators like me who want to explore St. Louis before final exams.

Stressed? Go Take A Walk!

Hi guys! One thing that I have learned after 5 semesters of college is the importance of health. College isn’t just about getting good grades; it is also about treating your body right and staying healthy. With all the stress piling up, the best (and easiest) way to relax is to simply go take a walk around the beautiful campus!

Mozart’s Requiem

What’s better than hearing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem in D minor performed live by one of the best symphony orchestras in the world? Last Saturday, I went to hear this incredible performance LIVE in Powell Hall with a couple of my friends. I can honestly say that this was one of the most exciting nights of the semester!
