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!

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!


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.


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.


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!

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!



$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)!



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!

California Midterm Elections 2018!

Midterm Elections 2018


Photo Credit:

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:


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


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!

👻 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!


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



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!


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!


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 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!



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!
