Got to spend Thursday onwards at UCLA as part of the Pilipino Recruitment Enrichment Program’s Bruin Life Weekend. Living in the dorms and sitting in classes was cool, Bruin Day on Saturday was super fun, and the dorm food was absolutely amazing. But by far. the best part was meeting so many like-minded people. In high school, they were all the same type of kid- super involved, talented, straight-A students. But unlike so many of those kids in high school, they balance that with a fulfilling social life.
Work hard, play hard. That’s the ideal environment, I think.
Shout out to PREP for organizing a great weekend for us, and Mikey and James for being the best hosts out there. Very strong possibility that I’ll see you guys in the fall.
