Spring Break 2015 in SoCal

Spring break, a time when college kids storm parties, have delicious eats, and make spontaneous adventures. Some people go to Lake Havasu, and some people go to Las Vegas. As for me, I go to SoCal. I’ve been going for the past couple years with the King Library Rockers, a breaking club on campus. But we don’t go just for fun, we go for an event known as Schools for Fools. Schools for Fools is an intercollegiate breaking competition that brings together colleges from different parts of California, as well as nearby states. Schools such as UNLV, University of Washington, and UCLA have participated in the past. If you want to get an idea of what it is like, check out the recap footage from last year by the friends at Banzski. I plan to write a longer post for this competition because there is a lot to take in from it, but just know this: Last year, we made it to the semi-finals. This year, we made it to the finals. That only means one thing next year… …

Summer Nights in the Spring

I realized that balancing a blog while being a full time student and a full time intern isn’t the easiest thing to do. It is one of the reasons why I haven’t been able to update this as much as I’d like, so I apologize. But with some adventures in May (which I’ll keep a secret for now), look forward to this being used quite a bit. After coming from the Red Bull BC One Cypher in San Francisco,  some friends and I decided to hang around Oakland to shoot some photos. My friend Kim was familiar with the area and took us to Jack London Square for a mini shoot. After long days from school and work, tonight was a nice breather. It felt like a summer night in the spring.  I’m thinking about turning this into a photo series: grabbing some friends or anyone that is down for a spontaneous night adventure that is in every other season besides Summer.      View more photos here
