Going to the Gym is Awful: Everything Hurts and I Want to Sleep
Blogger: Will Huang
Talking about myself is my second most favorite activity, so when Admissions contacted me to write about my summer, I didn't hesitate.
Where do I start? I recently got back from an all-expenses-paid vacation (or as we're calling it, a “conference”) from Chicago, where I spent four days doing touristy things with four other Oxy students. It was a journey of many firsts for me--first visit to Chicago, first limo ride, first Dodgers game (we won!), first deep-dish pizza, and much more. We were able to make it out to attractions from a cruise on Lake Michigan to art museums and planetariums to even a 95th floor bar! It was an absolute blast and we're very grateful to the Economics department for making it all possible.
Travel aside, I work as an Operations Intern at Northwestern Mutual and as a student worker at Oxy's very own Career Center. At the former, I am tasked with such important tasks as fetching the mail, printing labels, and fixing technology. I enjoy a stunning view of Downtown LA and they shower me with free food, so I couldn't be happier! Meanwhile, at the Career Center, I'm about to launch a large survey of our rising senior class to see what kind of programming the Career Center should plan this academic year. I'm coming for you, seniors.
What else? I started going to the gym and spend my waking hours in constant pain and agony. I also recently finished a small business program at UCLA and now get to look forward to returning to school three weeks early for RA training.
That's my summer in a nutshell! They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll spare you some reading: my Instagram is @instahuang. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to get ahold of me for any reason.
Have a wonderful summer!
