Sometimes, we all just need a good pick me up from our coffee shop to keep moving. But if you want to try to save some money and learn how to become your own barista, head on over to your Kapi apartment kitchen and give some of these a try!

TEA GUIDE

Matcha/Green Tea

If you are feeling sick or tired, or you’re trying to burn some fat, make some green tea! For an optimal cup of green tea, steep your tea bag or tea leaves for 1 – 2 minutes in hot water (167 – 176 Fahrenheit) and add your choice of sweetener (if you like your tea sweet). It’s a nice pick me up for when you feel like you need a moment.

Chai Tea

When you have a stomachache or you just feel sluggish, brew a cup of chai tea. The sweet/spicy taste will give you the kick you need to keep going. For the perfect cup of chai tea, let it brew for 5 -7 minutes in hot water so that you get a stronger flavor from your brew. After that, add your choice of milk, honey, or sweetener and enjoy!

Chamomile

Can’t sleep? Then you need a cup of chamomile tea! A mild flavored tea, chamomile has been used to help soothe and relax the body as well as promoting a healthy sleep cycle (also good for headaches). To make the perfect cup of chamomile, let it brew for 5 minutes in hot water. You can add milk, honey, or sweetener, but it might counter the intended effects of helping you relax. Of course, if you were just looking for a sweet cup of tea, then go on right ahead!

 

COFFEE GUIDE

Cold Brew (a lot of it)

If you like coffee, but you don’t care for the aftertaste, then try making some cold brew! All you need is a plastic pitcher, (strong) ground coffee (dealer’s choice), and some cold water. For the perfect blend ratio, try 32 oz of ground coffee with 4 cups of water (double it to 64 oz for 8 cups). Let it steep at room temperature for 8-10 hours and put it in the fridge for 6 hours. Strain it through a strong coffee filter. After that, you got yourself a nice cup of cold brew and you didn’t have to break the bank for it.

Frappuccino

Got a craving for something sweet? Look no further than the classic frappucino! Versatile and easy to make, you can’t really go wrong with this drink. Start off with a cup of coffee (or 2 oz of espresso if you want a stronger coffee flavor). Add some milk and ice (you might have to eyeball this ratio for the flavor you want), and some chocolate or caramel syrup (or get fancy with hazelnut or peppermint). Blend and serve.

Ice Coffee

You can’t go wrong with the classic iced coffee. Take it with or without milk, chilled or ice cold, etc. Take about a cup of freshly brewed coffee, ¼ cup of milk (or half and half), and add some crushed ice. Blend it for a nicely-distributed flavor and serve!

Take some time for yourself. Don’t push yourself too hard when studying or you might find yourself crashing when you least expect it.

Ideas For Valentine’s Day

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully-furnished student housing provider in California. Find top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

Chocolates and flowers are nice, but what if you want to ramp it up? Even if you don’t have a 👻 to spend Valentine’s Day with, get some friends and try some of these out! It’s tons of fun!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries are messy (but not if you’ve had some prior experience) but a great Valentine’s treat.  Just melt a bunch of chocolate, dip some fresh strawberries into the chocolate, and put them aside to cool. Put them in a nice container and wrap it up in a nice bow . . . and tah-dah! You have a beautiful handmade Valentine’s day gift for your bae. If you’re #TeamSingles, don’t worry! Gather up a group of your fellow friends and make your own treats. (strawberries dipped in warm chocolate are the best!)

 

All About you!

If you think your significant other would appreciate something more practical than flowers, make them a gift basket! It’s easy! Fill a gift basket with small token items that they might want or that reminds them of you, take a cheesy picture of yourself, and write an even cheesier letter on the back to let them know how much you mean to them. If anything, it’s definitely a step up from a box of chocolates for Valentine’s.

 

Cook a dinner (together)

You have all the necessary supplies at your Kapi kitchen to make this work.  Make it a date and cook your favorite Valentine’s meal together! It doesn’t have to be super fancy. The whole point is to just celebrate yourselves and spend time together. If it turns out that neither of you are very good at cooking . . . well, that’s what take-out menus are for.

 

Cuddle Kit

This one depends on your personal tastes. But the basics are a warm blanket big enough for two, snacks, hot cocoa or cider, and a movie you’d all enjoy. Curl up in your Kapi Apartment, put in that movie, and bust out the rest of your kit.

 

Night out in town (or not)

If you know a cool place to hang out at on Valentine’s day, and you know your significant other (or friends) want to go out, then by all means, treat them to a night out and enjoy yourselves! If you’re both more of the stay-at-home type, go buy some ice cream, candy, chips, and drinks, break out some games like Jenga, Monopoly (or a gaming console if you have one), and go wild. Order a pizza and turn your Kapi living room into a personal dancefloor. Either way, you’ll definitely be in for some #GoodTimes.

And then everyone, whether you’re taken or #TeamSingles, can look forward to February 15 when Valentine’s Day candies and goods are on sale. 😂💖

Life Hacks For College Students

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully-furnished student housing provider in California. Find top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

Your classes provide you with some essential skills you’ll need later in life, but these life hacks are not coming to a lecture hall near you.

 

picture representing leftover pizza

Make leftover pizza fresh again!

Hack #1: Cold drinks, but faster

If you have a warm or room temperature water bottle, juice, soda, etc, and you don’t want to wait an hour for it to chill in the fridge, wrap a damp paper towel around it and stick in the fridge/freezer. In about 20 minutes or so, you got a cold drink to beat this weird January heat with.  Of course, you could always avoid warm water with the famous “always chill” Kapi bottles 😊

Hack #2: Forever-smelling-good Kapi Apartment

No need to go all out with aerosol air fresheners! Just tape a couple of dryer sheets to an AC or a portable fan and turn it on! Your Kapi apartment will smell like fresh laundry in no time!

Hack #3: Fresh leftovers

You have leftover rice or pizza available, but it’s too chewy or too hard or it doesn’t taste as fresh anymore. No problem! Stick it in the microwave with a damp paper towel or a small glass of water and heat it up!

Hack #4: No more burns

If you have a candle with a hard-to-reach wick, and it feels like you might burn down your Kapi Apartment when you try to light it, use a strand of uncooked spaghetti. It’s better (and safer) for you, your candle, and your apartment, so give it a try today!

Hack #5: Overheating no more

Does your laptop overheat? Use a cup holder tray (the kind you get from Starbucks or boba place when you order multiple drinks). Turn it over and put your laptop on top of it. Success!

Hack #6: Good bye smelly shoes

If your shoes smell bad, stick a dryer sheet in them and leave it overnight. Tea bags work fine as well.

Hack #7: Tshirts as straight as your hair

If you have a wrinkly shirt, top, slacks, etc, and you don’t have an iron, use a hair straightener or hair dryer. (warning: use a damp paper towel to wipe off any hair product that may be on the surface of the iron before you turn it on to prevent stains and burns).

Hack #8: Focused grocery shopping

Cook a meal in your beautiful Kapi kitchen. Make a sandwich. Snack on some cookies. Eating before you go grocery shopping helps you focus on what you need to buy. You won’t be so tempted when you walk down the chip aisle! Also, if you have trouble remembering what you need to buy, take a picture of your fridge and/or cabinets. It’s better than writing down what you need or blindly guessing how much milk you have left in your fridge.

Make life easier for yourself and put these life hacks to the test!

4 Tips For Keeping Your Calm During Midterms

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully-furnished student housing provider in California. Find top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

It’s hard to keep focus sometimes when you have so many other things to do besides studying for midterms. Stay on track with some of these tips.

 

Do Something Productive

 

Picture that represents doing something productiveInstead of logging on to your Netflix during your midterm study break, do something that uses your brain. The reason why it’s so hard to refocus after a Netflix episode study break is that watching TV doesn’t do much to stimulate your brain as much as studying does. So the next time you take your 20-minute Youtube or Netflix binge breaks, read or cook something instead. You could also get up and walk around a bit (it’ll do wonders for your joints) or work out for a while at the Kapi community gym. You’ll find that you’ll feel more refreshed and that getting back on that grind won’t feel like a chore.

 

Meal Plan

Picture that represents food prepping

Prep your meals for the day so you know you’ll have something to eat when you need it. It doesn’t have to be fancy and it won’t take much time. You won’t be meal prepping for the week. (LOL). Wash some fruit and put it in the fridge so you can have a study snack on hand. Save some time on making lunch by cutting your vegetables beforehand and/or defrosting your meat before you start studying for midterms. This way, you save yourself the stress of trying to decide what you want to eat (and if you want to eat at all) because you’ve already (technically) started cooking.

Clean

 

Picture that represents cleaning

A lot of people tend to procrastinate on their studies by starting an impromptu cleaning spree. That’s great for your Kapi Apartment! But it’s not so great for you. Take a 30-minute break to do your dishes and clean your stove and counters, then get back on your exam prep for an hour or so. Do your reading while you’re waiting for your laundry to wash and dry. The key here is to clean incrementally so that at the end of the day, you feel like you got enough studying in and you can go to sleep with your Kapi apartment all tidied up!

 

Schedule Your Recharge Time

Picture that represents recharge time

School, work, study, sleep. The cycle repeats over and over again. It’s hard to keep doing what you do when your day wears you down. That’s why you should try to reserve at least an hour for yourself. An hour for you to nap, call your friends/parents, water your plants, etc. Set a timer and wind down for a bit.

 

 

Start studying for midterms early because you don’t want to find yourself cramming the night before the test. The key to a relaxing study session to pace yourself (and making sure you’re understanding all the material) Start off the quarter strong! Good vibes all around!

How to: Network in College

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully-furnished student housing provider in California. Find top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

 

College is your time to prepare yourself, to build up your skill set before you get unleashed into the world to do some good. But it’s is also the time to network because you’ll never know when you need someone to look out for you and put in a good word on your behalf.

Network

Go to class

Pay attention to the lecture. Take good notes and make sure to ask questions about things you don’t understand. Attend discussions and go to office hours whenever you can. Your professors and T.As are there to facilitate your learning experience. If they see that you are genuinely serious about pursuing a career in a certain field, they won’t hesitate to help you out when you need it. And as professionals already working in the field, they’ll be good resources for information related to your career goals. So it doesn’t hurt to maintain a good relationship with them.

The Career Center

From resume help to career workshops. Your career center is the to-go place for most of your questions on how to start your job search. They can give you great tips about the types of questions most employers ask and proper interview etiquette, and help you polish up your resume and cover letters. Drop by your school’s career center to learn more whenever you can!

Career fairs and workshop

While spot hiring is pretty rare these days, going to career fairs and workshops will give you an edge when it comes to networking. These events are usually attended by professionals and alumni who can tell you about the latest developments in a certain field or company (and review your resume while they’re at it). Don’t forget to dress up!

Internships!

Even if it is just for a summer, take it seriously! Even if it isn’t what you expected or it might not end in a full-time job, take it seriously! Don’t treat your internship as a resume filler. Use the time you spend there to learn about the field and make contacts you can call on in the future. Treat your internship like the real thing and your future self will thank you!

Get Linked

Business-oriented social networking sites like LinkedIn and BranchOut are great places to make connections! All you need to do is keep your profile up to date and the site will do the rest, linking you up with professional contacts and potential employers.

Make a call/Write an email

If you need more information, get in contact with someone who can provide you with that information. Make sure to drop your name and explain the reason why you’re contacting them (to request an informational interview so you can get the inside scoop you need)! A lot of grad schools and companies that visit college campuses for workshops often leave their business cards behind with students for that exact reason.

A lot of people get a jumpstart in their career just by being connected to the right person. Don’t lose out on getting to meet someone who can help you. Do some research and ask around! Putting yourself out there may seem scary sometimes, but you can do it!

How To: Save On School Supplies

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully furnished student housing provider in California committed to providing top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

Sadly, the break is over, and school is back in session.

 

School Supplies

School Supplies

Textbooks

If your professor tells you on day 1 on that they will not provide the class readings to you and that the class material is taken out of the required textbook, chances are that you’ll need that textbook. Textbooks are expensive, especially if they are the most recent edition of a text you’ll need for class, so spare yourself the hassle of buying a brand new $200 book and shop used (or rent). There are price matching tools online that will let you see where you can get the book you need for the least possible amount of money. And if your professor happens to let you use an earlier edition of the required text, that’s even better because previous edition texts tend to be cheaper! But of course, if you have friends who’ve taken the class before, ask them if they still have their books!

 

Technology

At some point in your academic career, you should invest in some storage devices. External hard drives are the way to go, but if you don’t have much to store, a USB drive works just as well. Check around Amazon or craigslist. That being said, if you need something like a new laptop or a router, you should probably look online and start comparing different brands and models. Pay attention to the specs (How much RAM? What kind of processor? Operating system?) and make sure you browse around to see what kinds of deals the retailers have at the moment.

 

Pens, Pencils, & Paper

Stock up on your basic school supplies (highlighters, whiteout, erasers, dry erase markers, index cards, etc). You might never know when you’ll need a pen or pencil during your class and having a piece of paper on hand to jot down information is pretty convenient. It’ll save you the trouble of making quick trips to your campus bookstore for a(n overpriced) pack of pens or notebook when you find yourself suddenly needing one. Speaking of your campus bookstore, prepare for tests by stocking up on scantrons and bluebooks! Don’t wait until the last moment to get them because it might be too late!

 

A Planner

If you’re planning on getting a planner, like a physical notebook to write down your schedule in, and you know that you’re not going to forget about it come March, then check out Amazon or a local stationary shop to see if they have something durable (and affordable) to last you throughout the year. For those of us who may not feel confident about such an investment, try Google Calendar. It’s customizable, shareable, and gives you a heads up on upcoming events or assignments you might have to pay attention to. Best of all, it syncs with your phone, so everything will literally be at your fingertips!

 

Snacks

Get some snacks. Just do it. There are times where you might not feel like cooking or you have to skip out on a meal because of a busy schedule. In any case, it’s always good to have some snacks on hand.

 

Take a deep breath. Exhale. It’s a fresh start this quarter, so go at your own pace and figure what you need to do.  Good luck and good vibes all around!

6 Of The Best Winter Destinations in California

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully furnished student housing provider in California committed to providing top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

 

Living in California means you get to enjoy some places that are great to visit all year long. But if you’re looking for a getaway, there are some choice destinations you should definitely check out while it’s still a bit chilly out.

 

Yosemite - California

Yosemite Park during the winter

Yosemite National Park

Nothing beats the crisp, fresh mountain air in the winter. Don’t worry about too much snow because it doesn’t snow a lot in Yosemite Valley, but if you decide to visit in the winter, you could get lucky and catch some light snowfall or see Yosemite Falls when it’s frozen solid. Some spots you gotta check out are the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias and Badger Pass.

Los Angeles, California

There’s never a boring moment in L.A. Between the museums, shops, and restaurants, you’ll have a full day of exploring and making memories! Check online to see if there are any specific parts of Los Angeles you think you’ll be interested in visiting. Maybe if what you’re looking for is some time under the sun, head over to the Santa Monica Pier or Venice Beach. If you want to go hiking, check out the wilderness parks in cities like Sierra Madre or Monrovia. If you are set on staying in the city, make your way over to Hollywood Blvd and do the Walk of Fame or explore the art museums like LACMA, MOCA, or the Broad in Downtown L.A. and then check yelp for some good eats after!

Mammoth Mountain

When you think of winter, you think of activities like sipping hot cocoa and playing outside in the snow. If that’s what you had in mind for your winter travel plans, then why not make a trip down to Mammoth Mountain? Mammoth is home to California’s highest ski peak, so you can count on it being an adventure worthy snow destination. If skiing is not something you think you’d be interested in, you can always explore the town of Mammoth Lakes for its gorgeous scenery and charming establishments!

Disneyland

This one is a no-brainer. After the holidays, you’ll find that the lines are shorter and the park is a little less crowded. If you can avoid going when it’s exceptionally cold or rainy, it should be nothing short of a perfect day. 💯👌

Santa Barbara, California

With its mild temperatures and coastal city vibes, Santa Barbara is a pretty neat place to hit up if you want to beat the winter cold. Take a walk through Shoreline Park or indulge in some of Santa Barbara’s sights by signing up for a bike tour. If anything, you should visit the Santa Barbara Zoo, tour the Old Mission Santa Barbara, and hit up the famous State Street to check out the shops and restaurants!

Your Kapi Apartment

Let’s be serious. The distance from your bedroom to your living room is a journey in itself sometimes. What better way to relax than with a plate of food and your favorite Netflix show? Or what about a good book? How about plugging in your console or logging onto your PC to play some games? Want to ramp things up? Invite your friends over and make it a party! Or what about if you want to get your chill on? Well, my most sincere suggestion would be to do all those things and more by yourself, but with all the blankets you own wrapped around you like a blanket burrito. #beststaycation

Start of the year with some good vibes! You don’t have to go out of your way to have an adventure! Go at your own pace and get some new experiences!

How To: Personalize Your New Room

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully furnished student housing provider in California committed to providing top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

It’s time to embrace your inner interior designer.

Your bed is your centerpiece

Kapi provides you with colorful bedding to make your room feel warm and cheerful. Add in some throw pillows or a cute plushie for extra comfort as well. You can mix and match however you like, but just make sure whatever atmosphere you’re going for is reflected in your bed. It definitely makes decorating the rest of your Kapi apartment bedroom so much easier!

The desk setup

Chances are, if you are in your room and you’re not sleeping, you’re probably studying or working at your desk. Make it easier on yourself and keep your desk organized with some nice paper trays or a quirky paperweight. Add a touch of flare to your (text)book collection with some eye-catching bookends. Put your pencils and pens in a tea tin. The sky’s the limit!

Throw a rug on it

If your Kapi apartment has hardwood floors or you just want a pop of color, get a rug. If anything, you’ll have a nice place on the floor to spread out on and your feet will thank you.

Light it up!

Add some ambiance to your personal space with some fairy lights. Get creative and arrange them into a design or some fancy word art. Illuminate your room with a nice floor or table lamp. If you want to freshen up your space, burn some scented candles (if it’s safe to). It’ll definitely make your Kapi bedroom cozier and more comfortable to study in!

White walls?

Show off your decor skills by hanging a tapestry for a splash of color! If you like word art, a motivational message on a canvas frame is a good way to go. Rep your favorite sports team by hanging up a banner of their mascot! Keep it minimalistic with some wall art or a poster in a poster frame. Put up pictures of your friends and family!. Your room will feel better if you decorate the walls, so get creative and let your imagination go wild!

Add some nature

Get a potted plant and place it by the window. It’ll bring some life into your space and brighten things up a bit. If you’re worried about killing an innocent plant, get a succulent. There are many guides online for maintaining succulents, and they’re small and low-maintenance, so you don’t have to worry about it dying if you forget to water it.

Storage

Your Kapi room will feel much more comfortable to be in if it’s clutter free. Keep your things organized in storage boxes inside your extra closets or storage rooms. Minimize fold wrinkles and invest in some hangers for your clothes. Put some order into your drawers and closet with a sectioned organizer. Everything has its place!

Shake up your space with these tips! Happy decorating!

Achievable New Year’s Resolutions!

Jessica Tsien

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully furnished student housing provider in California committed to providing top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

After some introspection and reevaluation of how this year went, we all probably have a vague idea of how we want to improve ourselves in the upcoming year. That’s what New Year’s resolutions are! But the problem with keeping our New Year’s resolutions is how unrealistic and complicated they often are. So ditch the ‘get a six-pack by summer’ resolution and start off with one of these instead.

The Gym is Not Your Only Option

For those of us who want to be a little healthier in the upcoming year, but don’t have the necessary resources or dedication to stick to a fitness plan, start by making small changes to your routine. Maybe take the stairs back to your Kapi apartment instead of the elevator. If you have a sugary snack every day, why not switch it out with a granola bar or some fruit instead? Drink more water and get up to stretch more often so that you’re not sitting for hours at a time. Once you’ve built up some confidence in your ability to follow through on making healthy lifestyle changes, then you can start trying to commit to more ambitious endeavors. But if you still think the gym is the best option for you, you can use your apartment’s community gym (it’s always free).

 

 

 

Be nice (to yourself)

If your New Year’s resolution is to take better care of yourself, that is to indulge in some self-care, go ahead and treat yourself to a break when you need it. Trendy cafes and restaurants are cool, but if face masks and Netflix while you are cozied up in your Kapi apartment are more of your style, there’s no one out there to stop you. 👌👌👌

 

 

Work on That Next Level You

It’s so easy to wish and want to become something more. Have you ever thought, “I wish I could talk to more people” or “I wish I didn’t procrastinate so much”? Instead of forcing yourself to start attending social functions or getting a planner you’ll forget about after March, work on being more confident in yourself and building a more conscientious work ethic. Take credit for your achievements and become your best advocate! Arrive to work or class earlier than you normally would and organize your space! Start off the new year with a new (next level) you!

 

Cook More

Sometimes, it’s hard to check your bank statements after you realized you’ve eaten take out for the past week. Put to use your Kapi apartment kitchen and the kitchen utensils Kapi provided and churn out some homemade food! Get fancy and invest in a cookbook of some recipes of your favorite eats! Or wing it and see what’s out there on the world wide web! Afterwards, maybe hit up the supermarket and get some veggies. 😂

 

 

Vow to do something awesome!

Many of us look back on the concluding year and think, ‘man, it would’ve been so cool if I did A, B, and C!” Maybe there was a trip or party you skipped out on that now you probably wish you hadn’t. Or an opportunity you could’ve taken, but you were too afraid of failing. In that case, step outside your comfort zone, even just for a bit! Discover something new about yourself that you never knew was there before and give yourself new experiences to cherish! It can just be a one-time thing, but at least you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that this time, you did it!

 

Take the time to relax and think about what you want for yourself in 2018! If you put your mind to it, you can definitely make it a year to remember! Happy Holidays!

5 Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Jessica Tsien

This article is brought to you by Kapi Residences, a fully furnished student housing provider in California committed to providing top-notch apartments and amenities at an affordable price.

Still in need of a gift? 🤣❄️☃️🎅🎁👌 If you’re having some trouble coming up with a present for your roommates, friends or loved ones, why not give one of these a try?

 

Put Some Style Into It

Nothing puts a pep in someone’s step like a quirky pair of socks. If you want to get a gift you know they’ll use, you can’t go wrong with clothes. Does your roommate look like they need some new college gear? Browse around your campus store! It’s getting cold, so why not look around for a comfortable sweater or jacket for them? Consider statement accessories like sunglasses and watches too if you want to step up your gift-giving game!

 

DIY

This is one is a little harder. But if you think you have enough time and resources, then go for it! Hang out in your Kapi apartment and try your hand at arranging a candy bouquet. Did you get your roommate or friend a cute cup or mug? Make it the centerpiece of a hot cocoa kit (that you made yourself)! Or stuff it with their favorite candies and wrap it up with a nice bow. But if you had something specific in mind that you want to try making, there is definitely a guide online somewhere! The effort will be worth it when you see the look on their face when they open your gift.

 

Admit One

Who doesn’t enjoy a good movie? With all the new blockbusters coming out this season, there’s something for everyone! Choose from a variety of gift cards and ticket vouchers from your favorite theaters! It’s a quick check online if you want to compare prices, but they’re pretty affordable, so you can put the money you saved into fizzy drinks and a big ol’ bucket of popcorn to share between you and your favorite person.

 

Gift Cards

No need to panic if your roommate is impossible to shop for. Instead of wracking your brain trying to figure the absolute perfect gift for them, get a gift card. It’s practical, sensible, and allows you to focus the eight hours you would have spent at a store on writing a heartwarming card at your Kapi apartment desk instead.

 

Stocking Stuffers

In the event that you can’t decide on a single gift, make a stocking stuffer goodie bag with things you know your friend will appreciate. Small token items like scented candles, bath bombs, notebooks, pens, adult coloring books, and more are fair game. Pick and choose different gift combinations or stick to a theme (relaxation, Star Wars, etc . . .)  It’s never too late to be thoughtful, so stuff those stockings!

The art of gift giving is really stressful, but remember, it’s the thought that counts in the end. While you’re caught up in the holiday gift-giving frenzy, take a moment to appreciate the people in your life and just enjoy their company.

Happy Holidays! \(^-^)/
