It’s late in the year (both the school and the calendar year, I guess), and it’s getting colder, and the looming holiday season is reminding me how far from home (both my hometown of pacific grove, ca, and my actual home, south korea) I really am. After a short week of breaksgiving, during which I […]


the mental notes and me: a microblog

Cropic Share File

Everyone’s got milestones that mark the passing of time and make it very real how short college really is, and how important it is to embrace every moment. For some people, it’s senior games, watching the people they look up to play their last sports game, and for others, it’s a final conference. Some people […]


happy hoplloween: 8 costumes you’ll probably see on halloween

by Jackie C.

It’s now the beginning of november, which means that Halloweekend was, very recently, upon us. Now let me tell you, in high school, I was ALWAYS on point with my costumes. My group of friends and I took halloween very, very seriously. Really, REALLY seriously. Back in high school, everyone was trying to impress each […]

selfies get a lot of flack. and for no good reason! I took a selfie in the bathroom mirror of the library after i noticed that a kind stranger had been posting feel-good messages all over the place: and my friends gave me so much crap! While one could argue that a selfie is a […]


behind the scenes of acatoberfest: singing, dancing, and ohana means family

by Jackie C.
I think that's a little bit over capacity.

Hey, did you know that I sing in an a cappella group? Since I haven’t written enough blog posts about a cappella yet, here’s another choi meets world post on a cappella! Yesterday night was the first annual Acatoberfest! Named punnily and with care (…by me) after the ridiculously large festival of joviality that takes […]

Yes, I know its Friday. I come to you tonight on my phone from DC because I was watching probably the sickest newly-grammy’d band in the world, Snarky puppy, with someone you’ve seen on the blog a lot, my friend Dan. I could go on about how sick the show was and how they played […]

In my past couple of blog posts, I’ve been spending a lot of time not writing about the things I’ve been doing in Baltimore over the summer, and promising that I’ll do it in a later post. Since I guess I don’t know how to write non-how-to blog posts anymore (seriously guys I’ve got a […]


The Croaker’s Guide to the World of A Cappella, featuring Pitch Perfect

mental_notes

Recently, my blog has been centered around giving a bunch of really unsolicited and probably a little unnecessary advice, and in the past, I’ve been all about telling people what to do and how to do it. So I guess I should talk about something I’m actually somewhat qualified to talk about. Are any of you […]

Last year, I wrote an end-of-the-year blog post about how great it was to be back home in California, and in it, i talked about how it took me a ridiculously long time to pack up, and how I wished that I had started earlier. That’s right. In what might just be the biggest freshman […]
