It's only the second week of school, so I'm still adjusting to my schedule. My schedule isn't as intense as I expected (so far), but this week was surprisingly eventful. I didn't expect so much to happen.
Tuesday was normal with school, but that night I had a 1 on 1 meeting with my RA and a meeting with the Diversity team. We met up to advertise an event we were having the next day, but I took a detour and decided to visit a friend of mine in the freshman dorms. We spontaneously hung out in her room before inviting her to come help me distribute flyers in the sophomore dorms (the one I live in) and watching Tangled in my air-conditioned room (I seriously love that so much). It was unexpected, but it was fun hanging out with her and I'm excited to get to know her more throughout the school year, especially choir...

After we met up with everyone else (we all split up to kidnap girls so that it would be quicker), we took them on a little adventure around the school. We took them through trees, bushes, across campus, and even got them on the statue Scotty the Lion (our mascot)! It was so entertaining to watch them and their reactions to doing this since they were blindfolded and were only able to hold hands with the people in front and behind them.

So I went to class after getting back to school, but I had to leave halfway through the three-hour class to help set up the APIC table for Sweets & Greets. My friends and two of my officers, Tammy and Mele, helped me set up and advertise to the other students when the event started. As part of our decorations, we had a Filipino and Hawaiian flag to show off our Asian and Pacific Islander pride! Lots of people came by the table and were interested in the club, which made me so happy. At least half, if not more, of the people who signed up weren't even Asian/PI! Part of it is because of the small population my school has, but it's okay because I love and appreciate that people want to get to know our culture (and the food as well). With that, it is now time for APIC to officially launch for the school year, and I'm excited to see what will happen and how my fellow peers will react to an Asian invasion on campus!

I'm really happy that I got to celebrate Sierra's birthday because we hadn't seen much of each other over the past few weeks. I could tell she enjoyed being with all her closest friends as well.

I also want to make a special shout-out to my roommate, Alissa! I haven't formally introduced her to my blog/vlog yet, but there have been some technical issues & life getting in the way, but I must say how much I've enjoyed living with her so far! She is such a contrast to my lovely roommate from last year, Janelle, but it's a good change. She's from Southern California like I am, grew up in a similar household as me, and a bunch of other things, so I've really loved getting to know her lately. I will have an intro video to her coming up soon, so keep out for that and I apologize for the delay!

Whew, that was a really long post. But this is all why I've been MIA this past week. I will work on scheduling more posts so that I don't have to worry about it with my hectic schedule, and now that I've finished this post, I can now get onto cleaning and homework! I've been so distracted and lazy to do anything else, now that I've gotten this done, I feel like I can finally go on with my day. I hope you all have a great week!
Chau for now ♥
