I remember this time last year finding out i was going to be dorming at FT. It was my last choice and i was wary about staying there. Soon found out that it truly was the best dorm, your own dining hall, gym, and pool. Not having to share a bathroom with your whole floor is something you’ll appreciate. The rooms are bigger and you have your own sink which you will love, especially those early mornings when you can barely get up. Plus the bathroom can be used for all kinds of activities ;]. Not to mention all the espacios where you can study in peace. I remember going to the other dorms and some of the people on the floors barely knew each other, whereas my floor was pretty damn close and social. If you get to live in FT, you’re in for an awesome year. If not then you’re in for a slightly less but still awesome year hahah.
P.S. South Tower 6th floor, room 6202 is awesome.
because of how isolated it is from the rest of campus/iv, everyone naturally gets closer
im going to miss those espacios </3
Anonymous asked: Do you know what it's like in the Santa Catalina Residence Hall on the Substance Free floor?
most people on that floor aren’t even substance free, so there’s not a super big difference at all
your RA has to throw programs that are geared more toward people who don’t drink/smoke though
//also anon, is it true that it’s 7th floor of north this year?
WHEN I START STUDYING FOR A TEST THE NIGHT BEFORE
things college taught me: eating alone in public does not scream I HAVE NO FRIENDS. in fact, no one gives a shit.
in highschool, you see someone sitting alone at lunch and most people assume “ew what a loser they have no friends so they have to eat by themselves how lame is that” but then you go to college and for me at least, it became nice and refreshing to grab lunch and ponder life or just eat breakfast alone at the dining commons while waiting for the caffeine to hit.
like today, i was at barnes(&noble) and i got hungry so i just walked over to shish kabob cafe (cheap as fuck <like $5 gyro sammich> iranian food…SO GOOD) and got my food and sat there alone people watching and it wasn’t the slightest bit weird nor did i feel uncomfortable at all. a year ago, i would have probably been embarrassed and gotten my food to go and then sat in my car eating alone so i wouldnt feel as if anyone was staring. but thanks to my numerous ortega/portola lunches spent alone…it felt normal, it felt great in fact. to just sit in peace and eat nomnom good food and ponder random as fuck things.
it was great.
naps on grass.
we’re classy as fuck.

one of my good friends from home is going to ucsb in the fall (as a freshman) and he’s up there right now for orientation and it’s making me remember my orientation time and how awkward it/i was and how bitchy my old orientation leader was lolol but also how it was my first time ever being up there and just walking around and thinking to myself “damn this is going to be home for the next four years” and how exciting and great it was.
that awkward moment when your mom wants to see pictures from college so you show her your facebook album…
and the only picture that won’t load is the one that has a caption of “doubleshot”
she just looked at me questioningly.
it was this picture
awkward. eventually it did load though.
eventually. awkward. awkward.
When you go away to college and then come back home, it seems as if the world was stuck on pause. Everyone is the same while you’ve changed.
I think I hit that moment of realizing…I’m really growing up.
:Labs are for try-hards who suck in lecture class but still want a good gpa
