The sharks are now in the thick of playoff games. To all those who are interested they are in round 1 of the playoffs. This consists of best out of 7 games against the St. Louis Blues (EW). We are now on game 4, this Thursday April 19. Of the 3 games that have been played, the Blues have won 2 and the Sharks 1. Even though we lost the last game, I am happy to see people all around campus wearing...
Lines, Lines, Lines.
Summer is approaching. More importantly finals are approaching. Most importantly financial aid/registration deadlines are approaching. This is made obvious by the constant line that seems to be here at the Students First Center. This is not helped by the endless parents/families/prospective students who come into the SFC to ask questions. If you need to come in, early afternoon is usually...
Its raining. Stay dry ladies and gentlemen. Yay for California, boo for me :(
Graduation Invite Fail.
A huge disaster happen this past week. I decided to be a pro and make my own graduation invites. I worked very hard on them and I thought they looked FANTASTIC. Here is where the fail happen. After hand writing everyones name on each invite, after handwriting all the addresses on each envelope, after putting a stamp and sealing each envelope, after sending each envelope in the mail, after hearing...
This made me laugh. →

Veronica, this is so awesome! I did the same thing on Saturday and it was a blast. We made enchiladas! What did you guys make? Merced families make everything fantastic while here :) vkempsfc: My friends and I made a huge dinner last night since all of us were still in Merced for the holiday. I love doing things like that with my Merced family! We all look out for each other, help each other...

Before you know it finals week will be here and a few short days later, SUMMER! Get on it and stay brilliant.
So today at the gym I watched a very interesting documentary about google! Google makes the android and they speak about the android extensively during the documentary. Just thought I’d throw that out there! aurorasfc: Where all my Android users at!? Good news droidies, Instagram is now available in the Android market. Which means not only can you post your own beautiful pictures, but...
Through A Bobcat's Eyes!: Need a Job?? →
There is some really great info here. Check it! vkempsfc: The key to getting a job on campus is standing out as an applicant. How do you do that? Prepare a top notch resume and cover letter! However, it doesn’t stop there right? Of course not! Make it through the application process and it’s interview time!! Put your business attire on, put your best…
Woke up this morning feeling like this. →
And I thought driving a car was hard..
Spring break was so great! I got to go to my favorite city in the world (San Francisco) 4 times, I ate tons of home cooked food, I watched season 4 of Sons of Anarchy, went on a few long bike rides, and caught up on my sleep. Like I said, it was a blasty blast. Anyone else have a fun break?
AdDiCtEd To CaNdY!.!.
Ok. This has become a serious problem. I am not sure if you remember but a few weeks ago I tumbled a picture of some 10 year old candies we had at our office. Those candies are long gone, but new candy has made it to the SFC. Sitting next to me, all pink and full, is a bowl of assorted candies. Chocolates, hard candy, salt water taffy, and more. A multitude of colors and delicious-ness. I cant...

Bear Creek Bike Ride
Yesterday afternoon after a long day of work and school I decided to go on a bike ride. I have ridden my bike all around Merced, yet yesterday was by far the most beautiful path I have gone on thus far. I biked down Bear Creek bike path from Snelling to McKee. It was a total of 10 miles, from my house to Bear Creek, down the bike path, and back home. It was super relaxing, a very beautiful and...
Away for a day.
This past weekend I spent Saturday - Sunday in Santa Cruz camping with my fraternity in the mountains. It was a blast. It is always nice to get away from Merced for a few days after being here for a while. It is good to relax and always gets me pumped to jump back into the swing of things upon returning. It was a 2.5 hour drive there and back, to me the perfect distance to get away for a couple...
Mid Semester Grades!
So, mid semester grades just came out yesterday. I hope everyone is doing as well as they expected to do. If not, IT IS NOT TOO LATE! You still have about 10 weeks to catch up in your classes. But what is that going to take? 1. Dedication - you must work hard and continue to work hard. 2. Late Nights - learning a semester worth of stuff in 10 weeks is hard but you can do it. 3. Patience -...
Be A Better Greek Week
To all you Greek’s out there. Do not forget that this week is Be A Better Greek Week. There are some really great events for everyone to participate in and I hope to see you all at some of them!
WARNING to all walking up the hill.
There is insane crazy amounts of wind today. The wind literally almost blew me off my feet. While walking up the hill, BE CAREFUL!
Im confused? Is it summer already?
I am not sure if its just me, but did summer ever happen? Sitting here at work and looking out the window I see clear skies, no rain, and plenty of warm sun. I am confused, isn’t it supposed to be winter? This past weekend was also amazing weather, no rain, no wind, only sunshine. I was wore a tang top both Saturday and Sunday. To add to the mix, I can also feel my allergies staring to...

The Waiting Game.
So this past Friday I finally sent out my graduate school applications to one of the few schools I am planning on applying too, San Francisco State University. It was not easy to compile all the information needed to fulfill all the requirements, but once it was all done, it felt good. It felt like a huge burden getting lifted off my back finally sending off my packet. Now, though, is the...

OK, maybe I’m just crazy .. BUT WHO KNEW IT WAS MARCH ALREADY!?!? Out of nowhere suddenly its March 1st. This is nuts! Last I checked it was February twenty something. This semester is FLyyyyyyyING by. Graduation, I am not ready to face you yet..
In response to vkempsfc hand washing.
Vkempsfc had an incident in the restroom where she saw someone leave without washing her hands. Every time you eat at a restaurant and visit the restroom you’ll find that ‘Employee’s must wash hands’ sign. Yet in our world today, realistically, not everyone washes there hands. Here is a quick summary of why you all should… 1. Germs are hearty. They can survive on...
A Transcript Kinda Morning
So this morning has been Transcript Tuesday. I have been working at the front counter for 30 min and have already helped a few students order transcripts. In total I have facilitated the ordering of 8 transcripts and one student came by to pick up her transcript. I also had to order a bunch of transcripts a few days ago to send with my graduate school applications. I guess that’s what...
tables vs. students
Ok so, being in a Fraternity, we have another event for which we do the infamous UC Merced tabling. Tabling has always been a way for student groups, organizations and clubs to inform the general UCM public of their events and standing. As the school has grown exponentially since its beginning, so have the amount of people tabling on a weekly basis. Here is where the issue arises, there are more...
Intramural Sports at UC Merced
So last night I went to an intramural sports game. I watched the Sigma Alpha Epsilon basketball team take on another team at 8pm in the gym. I must say, it was a blast. In my past years here at UC Merced I have played on a multitude of intramural sports. I have been on the SAE basketball team, I was on the SAE football team for 4 years, I played on the SAE soccer team, and dodgeball team....
