I hope you guys all had (or are having, soon to have) a good Spring Break :). I had an amazingly comfy, relaxing, and somewhat busy time with friends and family so all in all it wasn’t too bad.
Okay, so since this is a new website I guess I should introduce myself first. I’m Anthony, I’m a first-year Undecided/Undeclared student here at UC Irvine. If you want to get to know me a little better, feel free to post a comment and I’ll get back to you or just read our previous blogs on the old website or the bios :). So one of the things I want to focus on and really talk about this quarter is involvement. I recently joined Circle K, which is basically Key Club from high school evolved into a college level.
I really enjoy doing service and volunteer projects for others and lately I’ve been going with Circle K on Friday afternoons to volunteer at a Soup Kitchen in Costa Mesa. It’s a really good experience to be able to learn a bit of humility when helping others because as my roommate and I were asked to clean out the sinks…. well, we’ll leave it at that. Thankfully since I’m Undecided/Undeclared I have a bit of extra time to devote to other things like Circle K haha. In case you were wondering which soup kitchen I’m volunteering at, it is Someone Cares Soup Kitchen.
I feel fairly involved on campus, but I’m not sure if it’s enough. My grades are hanging alright and I’m pretty happy, but I’ll see about what else I can start doing and getting involved in. Oh yeah, throw in basketball into my mix of involvement at UCI. I literally play basketball everyday and if I don’t I start getting a little antsy and have basketball withdrawals. I’m also really excited for playoffs for the Lakers… I’m actually avoiding watching any games in the regular season right now because the Lakers are just doing horrible leading up to the playoffs.
I want summer to come sooner! Beeaaaacccchhhh. Ironic because it’s raining in Irvine right now…
