  • Set the World on Fire.

    [For full blog reading experience, please visit one of the coolest cities ever: San Francisco.  If that isn’t possible, eat some Ghirardelli chocolate and play this song]  

    So Spring Break was AWESOME.  

    Amy, Cameron, Anna and I drove down to Portland for St. Patrick’s day and then drove to San Francisco on that Sunday.  The drive was a lot of fun and consisted of napping, snacking on Fruit by the Foot and licorice, and singing at the top of our lungs.  

    We were staying with our friend Katie who had just returned after a quarter long internship in Vietnam!  She had an amazing experience and cooked some delicious Vietnamese food for us at her house.

    We went up to Sonoma!  We went out in the Castro!  We went to the beach! We went to Pier 39!  We did it all.  By the end of the day I was usually the one falling asleep standing up. 

    We also went to an Accepted Student Reception at the Aquarium of the Bay which was a great time and we go to meet some wonderful accepted students.  Hopefully they decided to attend SU!We listened to a lot of Fun. on the trip so that is why this song was chosen.  Also funny enough, St. Ignatius said “Go forth and set the world on fire” which is like a line in the song.  The Jesuits are everywhere.



    Spring Quarter started this week and my classes should be really interesting!  It definitely won’t be an easy quarter but I might as well go out with a bang, right?  Go big or go home. 

     Here are some pictures of our trip!
