Prepping for the upcoming break...

The semester tends to end rather abruptly--we have a series of finals that we all stress over and then, in the course of a day or two, it all ends and you head home. Winter break is actually quite long, and many students have found it to be quite boring in comparison to face-paced life at Cal. But it doesn't have to be mundane! The important thing is to find something productive to do, whether it be an internship, externship, a trip out of the country, or a job.
I recall my last winter break to be quite eventful--I had my first trip back to Hong Kong in seven years, meeting with many relatives I could barely recognize. I also took the time to apply to one of the USPHO scholarships, which I highly encourage you guys to try out! While the scholarships and prizes are awarded for literary work, they are open to all majors. Go ahead and use this opportunity to reveal your inner writing abilities (go tot the Undergraduate Scholarships and Prizes website for more info).
This winter will be a bit less exciting, but I'm still looking forward to it. I have this yearly ritual with my best friend of going to the LA Auto Show. Both of us are really into the auto industry and are really excited about all the new makes that have come out this year. In addition to meeting up with friends from high school, I'll be studying for standardized exams and unwinding a bit before Spring semester starts. Have an awesome break and enjoy the Christmas season.
