An Update on My Extracurriculars
Previously, I wrote a blog about what I do besides studying and going to classes. Many of those activities have not changed, but I’ll update on some. I’ve also participated in a few other clubs, but I haven’t been keeping up with them.
Habitat for Humanity: a wonderful club to get to know new people and help out not just with building affordable houses, but also helping at food banks, street meals, conservation projects, and retirement homes around the East Bay. Being a part of this club also introduced me to Berkeley Thai Brunch.
Pre-SOMA: a small little club at Cal (much bigger chapters in other universities) introducing students to osteopathic medicine. I’m not sure if I want to do medicine, but after finding out about the focus and objectives of osteopathic medicine, I find that it fits a lot of my beliefs about medicine.
Art of Living: an interesting club that offers courses focusing on breathing techniques on how to de-stress and improve you health. The courses also does community service projects such as going to New Orleans to help out with the relief efforts.
PAL: Obviously. It’s very near and dear to my heart.
Botanical Garden: propagating vines with Carlos, another volunteer propagator. This is actually something I love to do (and unfortunately might need to give up because I have a whole slew of other stuff). This year has been especially rewarding. I have been working with bomareas (and I just found out that they are a pest plant while searching the internet, but they are beautiful nevertheless), mainly repotting and untangling and tangling the vines. It’s a very time consuming process that requires a lot of patience, but luckily this year, they are in bloom or budding! This is not a very common event, especially since they are still in one-gallon containers, but it’s just fantastic. Anyone interested in plants or buying plants, two weeks from now is the Spring Plant Sale. So come can check out the plants!
