Novelty Gifts 😀

Novelty gifts are kind of tricky. As a student, you probably feel that the kinds of gifts you and other like you would enjoy are cool and unique, but still functional within the context of your daily lives. It doesn’t to be the type of gift to scream the name of the gift recipient, but it should still try to match their aesthetic. For novelty gift ideas, maybe consider a set of pretty wall lights or a small desk lamp. Mugs with quirky designs that are stuffed with candies is also a good idea! If you have someone your life who’s always on the go, perhaps they’d appreciate a phone case with a built-in charger or a utility keychain. Or for the gift that keeps giving, you could invest in a game-set (cards against humanity, Exploding Kittens) and have some fun times with all your friends!

Technology 🎧

Do you know someone who would appreciate some extra tech in your life, but you don’t know what to get for them? For music lovers, a set of noise-cancelling headphones or a portable speaker would be a perfect gift! If your friend likes to listen to music in peace, get the headphones (it’s also good for when the neighbors are loud). If they like to turn it up, they’d probably appreciate the speaker more! For your gamer peeps, they’re probably kinda picky about the gear they use (brand, specs, design, etc), so unless you know what’s on their wishlist, you’re good with a Steam gift card or any currency card for online app and game sites. If you’re not really sure how to pick out a tech gift, just ask yourself “is the quality worth the cost” and “is there really a need for this item” and you should be fine.

Beauty and Self-Care 👄

This holiday, treat your friend to some quality self-care items! Face masks, lotions, scented candles, and extra blankets will always be appreciated! So if you do decide to put together a self-care kit, don’t forget to include some snacks! Makeup is always a little iffy, especially if you don’t know what your friend uses or prefers. You’re better off gifting a cute nail polish set or a nice-smelling perfume than to spend $$ at a Sephora on a makeup palette that your friend might not use. And let’s not forget about the guys! And before you go off about how difficult it is to shop for a good cologne, you should probably check out some hair and/or beard grooming sets and see what fits them the best. Don’t forget to throw in some face masks too because everyone deserves soft and dewy skin!

Clothes 👕

If you know someone who wants to stay extra cozy this winter, send a pair of warm pajamas and some fuzzy socks their way! Not gonna lie, but sometimes the best gift is the one you can use to brave those 50°F mornings in good ol’ Cali. You don’t really need to spend $$ on the latest designer brands (unless you are planning to, then maybe get them a gift card to their favorite shop if you’re stressing about what to get). Of course, if you see something good that would make a good gift, snap it up!!!

Remember that no matter what happens, it’s the thought that counts in the end! Just being with your friends and family is a gift in itself, so cherish the memories you’ll make this holiday (and don’t forget to treat yoself when you can because you deserve it too!) Happy Holidays!

It’s Time to See California!

This is for the out-of-state people, the international kids, and the people who don’t know what’s out there/nearby in the Golden State! Forget about tourist traps like Disneyland for a minute and check out what’s to do in sunny California!

 

Los Angeles
The City of Angels. There’s so much to do, so much to see, and so much to eat! Downtown LA is the place to be if you want to immerse yourself in the arts. With museums such as LACMA, MOCA, The Broad, the Getty, the Hammer, and more, you’ll be busy trying to soak it all in! If you spread out a little further from Downtown, there’s the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Griffith Observatory, and the Rose Bowl. And if you get hungry, there’s so much food to try and choose from that you’ll wish you had a second stomach! But if you want some places to start from, why not try the historic Grand Central Market? Want to eat by someplace with a view? Well, you can’t go wrong with the restaurant lineup at the Santa Monica Pier or at Venice! And if that won’t work for you, just remember that Yelp is at your fingertips!

Orange County
Alright, so this is where Disneyland is, but you can bet that the happiest place on earth is also the place with the longest lines on earth. If everyone’s got a fast pass, then nobody’s got a fast pass. That being said, did you know that there’s a second theme park in Orange County? Knott’s Berry Farm’s got it all! Roller coasters, fun rides, great food, and only just a 30 minute drive by the 5 Freeway! If theme parks aren’t your game, then how about getting tickets to a concert at the Staples Stadium or to a baseball game at Angels Stadium? You also got beaches at Newport Beach (Corona Del Mar, Balboa Pier) and Huntington Beach! There’s also a ton of shopping malls, outlets, thrift shops, and cool boutique stores to check out if you’re feeling the urge to splurge! Treat yo’ self!

San Diego
If you don’t live in San Diego, the first things you might think of are SeaWorld and the Aquarium of the Pacific. But let’s be real, you’re not going to want to go to either of those places (and if you are, maybe reconsider). If you were going there for an aquarium though, try Turtle Reef (see the sea turtles), Aquaria, and Shark Encounter! But if you were looking for a more quiet place to spend the day, check out Balboa Park! It’s 1,200 acres of museums, parks, and gardens! You got science, art, and cultural museums to choose from, a wide open space to just chill and take selfies at, and lush gardens to walk through and smell the flowers. In the mood for something spicy? Check out the Gaslamp Quarter! It’s a downtown neighborhood of young people, just like you, with bars, clubs and, lounges for that fun night out with friends (if you were looking for that). Feeling beachy? No worries, La Jolla is there for the surf and fun, and for a chill night at a bonfire with friends!

Riverside
If you’re into historical sites and venues, then Riverside’s the place for you! Ever had brunch at the Mission Inn Hotel? Because their pancakes are to die for. They also have the Mission Inn Museum in the hotel that you can check out! And if you’re in the mood for a good hike, head to the parks at Riverside such as Mount Rubidoux and Box Springs Mountain Reserve Park, and get that fresh air and exercise! If you’re feeling hungry, use Yelp and check out some of the hidden gems in Riverside’s restaurant lineup. There’s KBBQ, boba, gyros, fried chicken, ice cream, sushi, and so much more! Your inner food will thank you for making the trip!

Bay Area
People from the Bay Area often say that they have the best food, and when that many people say the exact same thing, you can’t help but wonder if it’s true. For those of us who think that the Bay Area is just San Francisco, y’all missing out. The Bay Area encompasses not just San Francisco, but Napa, San Jose, Oakland, Berkeley, and etc. While this means that explaining the depth of the Bay Area in just a paragraph is not possible, that doesn’t mean we can’t try Y’all ever watch a Giants baseball game at the AT&T Park or embrace your inner foodie at the Soma SteEat Food Park in San Fran? How about taking a gondola cruise on Lake Merritt in Oakland? Or checking out the very cool Winchester Mystery House in San Jose or hiking at the Tilden Regional Park in Berkley? And of course, don’t forget about the famous wine tours in Napa! The point is that there’s so much to see and do up in the Bay Area, so you might want to plan accordingly if you’re planning to take a trip there!

How To Manage Your Finances… The Kapi Student Way!

You’re away from home. You got money on you, gas in your car, and wind under your wings. Where to go? What to do? How much will it cost? For the average college student, budgeting is kind of a new and scary thing that’s kind of hard to get at first. So if you’re still in the dark about how to manage your finance, check out these tips!

Make A Weekly Budget

Worried that you might be spending too much? Don’t be! If you’re trying to be money smart, set a weekly budget for yourself! Budget for what you need (groceries, gas, rent, utilities, etc) and set aside a small allowance (takeout, the movies, etc) for the little things. Try to spend only what you set out for yourself and try not to go over.

 

Use Cash, Not Card

If you can help it, use cash. Not to be a party-pooper, but having physical money on hand helps to remind you that you have limited funds and prevents you from overspending (when you don’t have the money to). Treat cards (especially credit cards) as a reserve and try to use cash to pay for your purchases when you can. If you’re trying to curb your weekly spending, this is a pretty good way to do it!

 

Did Someone Say ‘Free’?

Looking for something fun to do without breaking the bank? Yeah, that’s always a challenge. But instead of blowing $$$ in one afternoon, look for fun alternatives that won’t be as costly. If you check your city’s website, there’s usually some cool events hosted by the city that you and your friend can check out for free (or for a small admission fee). The beach is usually a good option, especially if you live close. And if there’s a park near where you live, even better. It’s possible to have a good time without emptying your wallet! You just gotta use your brain and get creative!

 

Shop Smart

It might be tempting to buy that expensive new thing as soon as it hits the market, but chances are that if you do, you might be punching a hole into your wallet. Instead, hold off on buying it until there’s a discount or sale if it’s not really a necessary purchase. You might even be able to get a better deal if you check online! And if you shop with promo codes and student discounts, you’ll save even more!

 

Textbooks

$200 for a textbook? No thank you! Many students already know that shopping for a brand new textbook is a sucker’s game because in a few years, the publishers will probably release the next edition with minimal changes for more or less the same price. Students will rent their textbooks from online retailers like Amazon or Chegg rather than shopping at their campus bookstore, but you want to go one step further, ask your classmates if they have an online version of the textbook (or look for one yourself if you know how to navigate the interwebs)!

 

Carpool

This one is a no brainer. If you and a friend are heading to the same destination, why take two cars when you can just take one? Enjoy the company and save some gas along the way. However, be courteous and don’t make your friend front you for gas money if carpooling with them is a daily thing. If you carpool regularly to school or work with your friend, you might be saving money for gas for your car (if you have a car), but they won’t be. Don’t be that person that mooches off your friend’s goodwill. (;-;)

 

Keeping track of how you spend your money can be difficult (especially when you want to have a life but also pay your bills), but it is important if you’re planning to save up money or wanting to keep a nest egg for emergencies. And don’t worry if you find it hard to adjust at first. Keep at it and you’ll find that managing your money will be easy-peasy!

Are You Ready For Black Friday?   

 

The deals! The discounts! The satisfaction of buying a really expensive item for a steal! Yes, Black Friday is almost upon us! So here’s some tips for you to make sure you’ll be shopping savvy this year!

Prioritize Needs

If something you need (like a new toaster or hard drive) is on sale during Black Friday, don’t put off getting it until it’s convenient for you. Chances are that you’ll be left with slim pickings after everyone else bought their fill. That is, you’ll probably be left with the stuff people didn’t want to buy (maybe for good reason) and you might have to wait until the next big sell to get what you were looking for. (」´ ロ`)」

 

Know Where to Get What

Don’t go to Walmart. Big superstores with a large inventory on sale attract large crowds. Large crowds you have to get in line earlier, stay in line longer, and parking might be kind of non-existent. But if you need something from Walmart and they have the best deal on the item you want, good luck. Or do some research on that item and see what other retailers have. See if you can get a better model at a better price!

 

Shop Online (⌐★ᴥ★)

If you don’t want to brave the crowds or the lines, shop online! Online retailers will be participating in Black Friday sales too, so if you browse around, you might find what you’re looking for without having to leave the comfort of your home! Also, if you have promo codes, use them. You could probably shave off a few more dollars and get some free gifts when you check out!

 

Use CaSh Money

Try not to use your cards if you can help it. Leave them at home if you can. If you want to be money-smart this Black Friday, set a budget and know what you’re going to buy and how much it costs. Use cash to pay for your purchases because it’ll help you keep track of how much you spend than if you relied on your cards. Plus, some of are in the habit of treating electronic payment as “imaginary money” until they check their bank accounts. Just pay in cash. You can’t overspend if you only have so much money on hand.

 

Return Policies (˘ᵕ˘)

Sometimes, the things we buy turn out to be not so great. And we obviously don’t want it to sit in our closet forever and collect dust, so the next best thing to do is return it and get store credit or cash. But to do that, you usually need the receipt from when you first made the purchase to be able to return the item. So keep your receipts. And try to return the item as soon as possible. Some retailers have a 30 day return policy and after that, it’s yours to keep forever. 。゚(゚´Д`゚)゚。

 

Last tip: shop with friends and/or family! It’ll make the whole experience a lot more enjoyable than just you shopping alone!

California Midterm Elections 2018!

Midterm Elections 2018

While midterm elections aren’t usually as hyped up as presidential elections, this year, young people of voting age went out to the polls and exercised their right to vote in record breaking numbers! Historically, young people (18-29 yrs old) have had the worst election turnout in both presidential and midterm elections. So to all the young people who went out to vote this year, stay passionate! Stay active for the change you want to see! The outcome of the 2018 midterm election saw many historical firsts for many positions in government across state lines because people who don’t usually come out to vote, who couldn’t vote, who have passionate views and positions voted with their hearts and their conscience.

If you didn’t get to see the change you were hoping to for, don’t dwell on it! In the words of Newt Scamander, magical zoologist and author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, “Worrying means you suffer twice.” Just because change didn’t happen overnight doesn’t mean you stop fighting for it. There will always be other chances effect change! 🔥

If you haven’t caught up with the election results in California yet, here’s a quick rundown! We have a new governor, Gavin Newsom (D) and a new lieutenant governor, Eleni Kounalakis (D). They will not take office until early January 2019. Fun fact! Gavin Newsom was the previous lieutenant governor under the previous governor of California! The senior senate seat was up for election this year, and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) secured a majority vote to keep her senate seat. In the House of Representatives, Democrats secured a majority of the seats (42 seats, 40 majorities, 2 leads) and Republicans won 11 (8 majorities, 3 leads). Incumbent Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) won with a majority vote over Challenger Steven Bailey (R). From the 40 seats in the California State Senate, 20 seats were up for election, with Democrats winning 13 seats (10 majorities, 3 leads) and Republicans winning 7 seats (4 majorities and 3 leads). In the state assembly, 80 seats were up for grabs, with Democrats winning 57 (52 majorities, 5 leads) and Republicans winning 23 (18 majorities, 5 leads).

That’s it for the California midterm elections! If you’re curious and want to know more about the specific candidates, races, propositions, and legislations, read up on it! It won’t hurt to stay knowledgeable on policy and the people who are responsible for it!

Adjusting your clock & routine for daylight savings!!!

Daylight Savings!

 

Thank goodness it’s the time of year when we gain an extra hour. But before we start celebrating and overthinking what we are going to do with that hour, here’s some tips you might want to check out if you know you’ll need to adjust your schedule to daylight savings!

Go Back To Your Regularly Scheduled Sleep

Just because you have an extra hour to stay up and study/game/etc doesn’t mean you should. If you are tired, don’t ignore it and push yourself. Practice good sleep hygiene and go to bed when you need it. Turn off your lights and screens, set your alarm(s), and get some ZZZs! You can go back to whatever you were doing before once you wake up refreshed

Reminders

If your schedule is going to feel out of whack, the best way to get back into your rhythm is to set some reminders for yourself. If you have something you might forget to do, write down! Worried that you might arrive late to something? Set an alarm (or set multiple alarms if you don’t trust yourself)!

Don’t Put Things Off!

Just because you have an extra hour doesn’t mean that you can procrastinate for an hour longer! Those of us for have fallen for this fallacy before are familiar with what the consequences can be, so just don’t. Take care of what you need to do first. If you feel like you have the energy and the time afterwards, do ya thang. Have fun. Get turnt.

That’s pretty much it! Remember to take a break when you need it! Use that hour to get some extra rest if you can! Good luck with midterms and school, everyone!!!!

HAPPY KAPI HALLOWEEN!

Important Tips & Guide to a Fun, Safe Halloween!

👻 Stay Safe & Spooky! 👻

 

Halloween is almost upon us! But before you head out to get your tricks and treats, check out some of these safety tips so you know how to stay safe and sane on Halloween night! 🎃

Follow the Rules

Don’t do stuff you’ll regret the next day! Have a good time, but don’t do anything that might land you in a hospital or holding cell. Respect the rules of the establishment you’re in (campus, someone’s apartment, etc), get turnt, and stay safe!

Practicality

It’s dark and spooky out there! And walking out in sky high heels or full-on face masks will definitely impair your ability to move and see. If you have a costume that may cause some problems later on because it affects your mobility or visibility, maybe consider making some alterations so you won’t have to deal with annoying costume problems down the line. But if you think that your costume is too 🔥 to quit, bring something else you can change into (like flats or a change of clothing). Take a breather too! You don’t want to be wearing a bulky mask, wig, etc for a whole night!

Drink Responsibly ☠️

You don’t gotta drink to have a good time, but if you are planning to, make sure you know your limits! You don’t want to throw up on your costume or wake up with bad hangover, right? And you already should know this, but don’t drink and drive! Take a lyft or uber, or better yet, have a designated driver who is able to look after you if you do drink! Better safe than sorry!

The Buddy System 🧛

You can’t go to a good party without a good friend! Have someone keep tabs on you and keep an eye out for your friends because that’s what good friends do! It’s a spooky night on Halloween, so at least make sure you have someone who you can walk back with after the fun’s over (if you have to walk to get home). Stay on well-lit paths! And don’t hesitate to reach out to the campus security for a ride if you need it!

For Emergencies Only! 🚨

This is a given, but make sure your phone is charged and your ringer is on max volume before you head out. You wouldn’t want your phone to die on you on the spookiest night of the year! If you’re going out to somewhere that you’re not familiar with, give a heads up to a friend! If you get into any trouble and you need assistance, that person will know where you are and will be able contact for help! Also! This is important! Keep some emergency money at your side in case you need an Uber or Lyft home! Or you might need it for something else!

Get ready for some of that good ol’ fashioned Halloween mischief! 🕷️🕸️👻 Stay safe out there and make sure that you and your friends stay safe out there on your Halloween adventure!

Play a game and take off the edge before midterms!

Fun Party Games

 

If you’re throwing a little shindig for a couple of close friends and jenga is not cutting it anymore, have a blast by giving one of these games a try!

 

Image result for party

 

PARANOIA

Who doesn’t love a good secret! But don’t worry, it’s not as scandalous as you might think (unless you want it to be). Gather all your friends around in a circle and take out a coin (preferably a quarter). Decide who goes first. That person will ask whoever is sitting next to them a question (like “who do you think is most likely to… ?”) and they will have to reply (out loud and proud) with the name of someone else who is sitting in the circle. Flip the coin. If it’s heads, say the question out loud, and if it’s tails, the question stays a secret between you two forever! It’ll keep everyone on their toes!

Masterpiece

Strike a pose! Then give your friends a full minute to immortalize you in their art! It’s pretty simple. Pass out some paper and writing utensils (pencils, pens, markers, highlighters, etc). Pick a person to be your muse and have them pick their pose. They have to hold it for a full minute while you and everyone else have to try to capture their best side. Afterwards, have the model pick out their favorite portrait!

Charades

You can never go wrong with this classic game. It’s easy, no fuss, and you’ll get some really good laughs out of it. Cut up some scrap paper, write down a bunch of things you’d like to see acted out, and put the pieces of paper into a plastic bag or container. After that, it’s just a matter of splitting into teams and trying to act out the most things in a minute. 😂 You can also download free charades apps on the apple store or the play store if you like.

What do you think?

This game lets you know just how well your friends know you and how well you know your friends. Ask a question about yourself (like any question). It can range from, “what do you think is my favorite food?” to “what do you think is my type?” Go around in a circle and have your friends give their answers. You’ll be surprised by what they say!

Take a break and have some good times with some good friends! You’ve been working hard and you deserve it! 💪

Communication Etiquette for the Conscious Kapi Student in 2018!


Image result for teaching etiquette

 

Communication Etiquette!

Whether it be in person or through the net, it’s difficult to get through a day without talking to anyone! So if you need some tips on what to do the next time you gotta get that human connection, look no further because we got you! 😀👌


Phone Calls ☎️

Ah, yes. Phone calls. For some people, the idea of calling someone over the phone can be a little bit anxiety-provoking. Why? Well, it could just be that they’re not as coherent or eloquent as they are over text or emails. It’s all good when you’re calling a friend, but it’s a different story when you are calling to make an appointment or an inquiry about something that is both personal and important to you. Don’t worry. Start with a ‘hello!’ or ‘good morning/afternoon/evening’! State your name and the reason for why you are calling. Don’t be afraid to elaborate if you have to! If the person on the other end can’t hear you, be patient and just adjust your volume and/or talking speed and try again!

Texting

Texting is a lot less formal than writing a letter or email, so try not to sweat too much over typos when autocorrect changes ‘of’ to ‘if’ and vice versa! 😅 If you’re texting friends, just do you! No need to worry about the amount of emojis or ‘LOLs’ you put into your messages. If you’re texting an acquaintance or someone you don’t know very well, you could try to tone down the extraness in your texting style until they get used to it. And if you’re texting someone in a more formal context, just remember that one or two smiley emojis is ok, don’t ‘LMFAO’ your boss, and keep your language on the straight and narrow unless otherwise. 🔥🔥🔥

 

Social Media 👀

If you have an account on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr, Youtube, and etc, you probably already have a social circle on there with which you are comfortable and familiar with! It’s your personal space! But try to keep it tasteful! You don’t know what impression your social media might give to a potential colleague or employer should they look over your queued posts!

 

Emails

Image result for email inbox

Emails are hardly ever fun, especially when you’re a student! But you have to keep on top of them because your academic life kinda depends on it. #sadreactsonly #😥 During each quarter/semester, you’ll probably have to email a professor or two about the course if you haven’t already gone to office hours to do that. So if you don’t already know how to formulate a .message, here’s a few tips on how you can do that:

● Start off with a ‘Dear Professor/Dr. *insert name here*’. Make sure that you use the proper term of address unless your professor is ok with being addressed casually.
● You should state your name, school ID#, and which class of theirs that you are currently enrolled in because some professors teach more than one class and will not bother with the rest of your email if the source is too vague or ambiguous.
● State your concern -> grade disputes, exam regrades, homework/project clarification, research interest. Be polite and concise with what you want to say.
● Thank them for their time. Your professor is probably taking time out of their free time to read your emails, so thank them properly. If you want a response, say something like ‘I understand that you are busy, but I would appreciate it if you could give me a response regarding this concern. Thank you!”
● Sign your email -> “Sincerely, *insert your full name and school ID#)

Bug Calling


Just don’t.The person you’re trying to contact has a life of their own. Maybe they’re busy working or taking a break. The aren’t going to be chained to a computer or a phone at all times and you are not entitled to their time and energy, so don’t expect them to give you an immediate response to your concerns. Give them some time before you send another email or call them again. If you’re thinking about sending them an email or a voicemail every hour or so until they respond, maybe rethink that choice. You wouldn’t want someone to spam your inbox, so why would you do it to them?

Once you get the hang of it, communication with your colleagues and the outside world isn’t so scary! And if you’re still not sure about what the etiquette rules are, try to ask yourself how you’d conduct yourself and what would you say if you were talking to someone in person! Enthusiasm and excitement aren’t bad, especially if you want to leave a good impression on someone! 💪 (That’s a low-key life hack right there!) Don’t be intimated to reach out to people when you want to!


 

Why wait? Just get it done!!!

Steps to Getting Things Done!

Let’s go! You can do it! It’s time to buckle down and get busy! But if you need some tips on how you could stay on task, then look no further!

Image result for productive

 

Multiple Alarms 📱
If you’re the type to say, “I’ll get back to work at 7PM”, and then take an extended break because you weren’t paying attention and it’s now 7:01PM, then you might need to change some of your ways. 🤣 🤣 If you keep your phone around you a lot during your study sessions, you can create alarms to help pace yourself so that you know when to study and when to take a break! It’ll help keep you from procrastinating too hard and make sure that you don’t overwork yourself! And if you know that you’ll get distracted by having your phone too close to you, turn up the alarm volume and leave it somewhere out of reach. 💪

Clear Your Space
When you’re working in an environment with distractions (things you’d rather be doing instead of the thing you’re supposed to be doing), it’s pretty easy to get sidetracked. Maybe you’re working in your room and the distraction is your warm, comfy bed. Or you’re studying in the living room while your roommate is in the middle of rewatching all seven seasons of Parks and Recreation. Are you really going to be able to tune out all the punchlines and pranks? (we’re all human, fam). Naw. So if you need a distraction-free area to study in, try quiet places like your school library or one of the study rooms at your Kapi Community Center! 📚

The Buddy System
Sometimes, having someone around can really make a difference. And when you put on that 24/7 lo-fi youtube playlist? It’s good times all around! But for reals, having some company around can keep you invested in a boring grind. But you gotta remember that while it’s cool to take some time to goof off and let loose during a break, you can’t just completely neglect your responsibilities. Make sure to keep your study buddy in check and have them keep you focused!

Plan Smart!
It’s really great when you have the motivation to get everything done in one day, but we know that sometimes, that’s not the case. Something last minute comes up and you gotta stop what you’re doing to take care of this new, sudden priority. You got tired, hungry, or you just lost the motivation to do the thing because your task seems unending and pointless. Try investing in a planner and map out what you want to do for the day and what is realistically possible. Space out your to-do list and you’ll get a lot more done when you don’t have to worry about everything at once.

Try some of these tips and see how they work out for you! If you keep at them, you’ll be able to maintain a good study/work routine and get more things done without burning out! You can do it!
