School Is Important, But So Are You!

A lot of people are either gearing up for their midterms or winding down from their last midterm of the quarter. But still, don’t stress yourself out too much! If you need some reminders to take better care of yourself, look no further!

Eat!

It’s “normal” to skimp on meals when you’re living that #collegelyfe, but that doesn’t mean you should. If you’re going to school for 4-6 hours a day, studying for 5-8 hours at night, you need food. If you can’t spare the time to cook for the day, no worries! That’s what drive-thrus are for! But if you’re money-conscious (good for you!), there’s nothing wrong with instant ramen once in a while. Just add an egg for some extra nutrients and you’re set! And if you can’t do even that, make sure you just have something to snack on. And water. That way, at least you have something in your belly and you’re staying hydrated!

Sleep!

The research studies say we need about 8 hours of sleep each night, but most of us here are cutting an average of 5 hours and making up the rest with the daily coffee, tea, energy drink, etc. It’s hard maintaining a consistent sleep schedule, but it will definitely beat the feeling of your soul slipping in and out of your body during an afternoon lecture. Let’s not #astralproject during the day! So, if 8 hours of sleep is impossible because you have too much to do, just make a good start by going to bed every night at the same time. Whatever you have to do (unless deadlines are extremely close) can wait until tomorrow.

Chill!

Doing nothing is doing something. You’re allowing yourself to rest and take a break from the anxieties of life. Even if you’re just sitting on the couch and staring into the void, that’s good enough. Put on a face mask or something and chill with a few episodes of your favorite netflix show (set an alarm or episode limit to avoid binging.) Play a few rounds of LOL or Smash with your friends! Whatever you decide to do, just relax and enjoy the feeling of being you.

Me-Time!

Besides school, work, and sleep, what else do you need to do? Do you need to shop for groceries?  Is your gas tank due for a refilling? When was the last time you cleaned your room? If you’re not feeling like you’re being productive, that’s fine. Everyone falls into a lull when they’re trying to focus. It’s not that you’re lazy or dumb or anything like that (No! Not in a million years, fam!). You just need a break to step back from what you’re doing and process the information! Do something different for an hour or so! It doesn’t have to be a super intense cleaning session or a 2-hour meal prep. Just do something else for yourself!

Good luck on your exams! You’ll do great! You got this!

Valentine’s Day 2k19

Have you shot your shot at your special someone yet? No? Are you planning to shoot your shot this Valentine’s Day? Or are you just looking for ideas to surprise your special someone with?

Surprise Date

Want to spice up your routine nights out? Need some ideas on what to do or where to go? Well, that’s kinda up to what you think you and your special someone would enjoy. If you’re down for something on the more casual side of things, a nice dinner at a sit-down restaurant followed by a movie is a classic date staple. You could also give fun, no-fuss places like bowling alleys and arcades a try (bring other people to ease the pressure if you like). However, if your plans are a little more complex and you want to end the night with a IG post declaring your love, you should probably look into places like (Naples, Long Beach), (Disneyland and/or Knotts), (Crystal Cove), etc. You know? Add some pretty scenery to your special night out!

Gifts They Can Wear

Jewelry gifts are real nice. If you’re thinking about stuff like couple’s necklaces and bracelets, or even a promise ring, you’re on the right track. No need to give you any advice on that one. But if you’re new to this, you should probably wait on giving them some serious bling. Instead, why not get a couple’s outfit? It doesn’t have to be a full outfit, but just something functional with a touch of you to remind your special someone of you when they are wearing your gift, like matching hoodies or bomber jackets! And if you’re not into matching, just make sure your gift is warm, stylish, and comfy!!!

Gifts They Can’t Wear

“It’s the thought that counts.” Yeah, the thought of the gift counts, but that doesn’t mean you should just get your special someone whatever. A gift of chocolates, candy, and desserts is always a go-to classic, especially if they have a sweet tooth! (Flowers are also a nice touch!) However, you could also go with something fun and quirky, something that makes them go 😮! This could be like a cuddle kit, fun-smelling candles, coffee mugs with cheesy slogans, or even a soft and squishy stuffed animal! These types of gifts usually involve some personal touches, so add a personal message or a flourish to it that will scream “ME + U”!

Appreciate What You Have Together

If you’re nervous about shooting your shot, don’t worry. Take it easy. These things take time and you probably should think about how you want to approach your special someone if you want to take your relationship to the next level. Even then, just appreciate their presence in your life and let them know how much you appreciate their friendship! Celebrate each other and be there to hype each other up when they need it!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Neat Eats! (Irvine Edition) 🍽️ 😋

Are you feeling adventurous and in the mood to indulge your taste buds? Looking for somewhere new to grab a bite at? Well, if you’re reading this, then we got you covered! Maybe the next time you’re in the mood to eat out, you could give one of these a try and see how you like them? If all goes well, you might be coming back for some more!

La Michoacana (Tustin, CA)

If you have never heard about La Michoacana before, it is a Mexican ice cream and dessert parlor that has everything to satisfy your sweet tooth! To start, they have many ice cream flavors (try 20+) on their menu, ranging from the normal go-to chocolate, vanilla, cookies and cream, etc to more traditional flavors like Chamoy and Arroz con Leche. They also have fruit sorbets and paletas (ice cream and fruit bars) if you’re in the mood for something light and refreshing. And not to mention, they have a selection of aguas fresca for you to enjoy (made with real fruit and ingredients) that will definitely have you coming back for another cup! If you are in the mood to snack, why not try their elote (mexican street corn) or bionicos (fruit salad with crema, coconut, and granola) or indulge in some old-fashioned nachos or hot cheetos with cheese? The drive to La Michoacana may be a bit on the far-side, but you will definitely not regret making the trip!

OMOMO Tea Shoppe (Irvine, CA)

If you’re a fan of boba, then you probably already have one or two go-to boba shops to get your boba fix. But if you are in the mood to try a new option, then you should head down to OMOMO. The hype is very real. OMOMO Tea Shoppe has many drink options, so even if you’re not a tea person, they have coffee and espresso. If you’re not a fan of milk tea, they have brewed teas and fruit teas. If you are lactose intolerant or vegan, no worries. OMOMO has a variety of alternatives for you to try out, ranging from almond milk in place of regular milk, agar boba and aloe in place of honey boba, etc. You can customize the sweetness and ice levels in your drink to however you like it, which is always a plus! Just beware of the line because by the time you are reading this, there are a lot of other people who have caught on to the OMOMO hype.

Mokkoji Shabu Shabu Bar (Irvine, CA)

Since it’s been kind of chilly out, nothing warms you up better than some hot pot in your belly! That’s why you should go on down to Mokkoji Shabu Shabu Bar with a few of your close buds and pals for some good and wholesome food! It’s definitely a bit upscale for hotpot, so if you’re planning a celebration for someone or you’re just in the mood for a fancy feast, you should go. And if you’re still reading at this point, but have no idea what hotpot is, it’s a giant soup pot you can fill with noodles, meat, and veggies (just veggies too if you’re vegetarian/vegan). You sit around the pot, wait for the soup to cook everything in the pot, and then you can eat it all!  (TBH tho: if you’re just in the mood for some casual hot pot, Boiling Point (Irvine, CA) is also really good)

Burntzilla (Irvine, CA)

In the mood for some comfort food? Well, if you are, you’ll find it on the menu at Burntzilla. Burntzilla prides itself on putting some really creative and modern twists on your classic comfort foods. This place is really chill (zero fuss) and pretty easy on the wallet, so you can just grab a few friends and head on over for some burgers, hot dogs, and fries. Try out their sides and grab a soda, sweet tea, or lemonade! Let’s go!!!

HiroNori Craft Ramen (Irvine, CA)

Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of options for ramen in Irvine besides the usual go-tos like Yushoken Izakaya & Ramen (Irvine, CA) and the Ajisen Ramen (Irvine, CA). You might have had to drive further down if you wanted something fancier like Shin-Sen-Gumi (Irvine, CA), but no more! There’s really cozy ramen place close by and it’s really good! Customize your ramen to however you like it or order one of their hefty rice bowls and just dig in! With their rich broth, chewy noodles, and cooked to perfection sides, you’ll walk out of HiroNori with a pep in your step and your stomach filled.

There are some really good places to get food at in Irvine, but you just have to look a little harder and be in the mood to try something new if you want to discover what’s next on the menu! Obviously, there are other really tasty food joints too, so don’t just limit yourself to what is on this list! Go ask a friend and see what are their favorite places to hit up!

2018 Holiday Gift Trends

Are you stressing out on what to get for the people on your nice list this season? Shopping for holidays can be rough, so if you need a couple of gift ideas, we got you!

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). (courtesy of the New York Times California Election Results 2018)

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!

Photo Credit: pixabay.com

 

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!!!!

Important Tips & Guide to a Fun, Safe Halloween!

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!
