For this recipe, I was going to start out by talking about how ‘summer is right around the corner’ and all those cliché expressions, but then I realized that we live in Santa Barbara, California, where there are no seasons and ‘cold’ is anything under 65°F. For us (or for me at least), the pe...

June 10th is, obviously, the day we get out of school for the summer, which is so exciting! But you know what’s even more exciting? The fact that June 10th is ‘National Ballpoint Pen Day!’ Ok. So maybe it’s not as exciting as summer break, but it’s still on the top of the spectrum, right? Anyhow, I felt that since ballpoint pens are so exciting and f...

Pizza is probably the best thing ever invented. You can pretty much put anything you want on it, and it still tastes like (what I assume) heaven tastes like. My personal favorite — pepperoni and chorizo with extra cheese. Try it sometime. The only bad thing about pizza — it’s a lunch/dinner food....

With summer break coming up, many are going to go on vacation. Discovering new places is one of my favorite things, but as much as I love traveling, I must admit, long flights are the worst — so, here are a few things to pack in your carry-on to make your journeys a little less dreadful.

What comes to mind when you think about summer? You probably don’t think about reading other than the assigned reading that you are forced to do. Instead of the stereotypical boring assigned reading, try reading some of these books.  ...

With summer coming up, a common thought everyone is having is of the vacations that they will soon be taking or vacations that they would like to take. I went around campus and asked a handful of students where their dream vacations are. Their responses varied from African safaris to the tropical island...
