Weekend Ideas: Get Chummy With Your Roommates!

Don’t be a stranger! Especially if it’s this late in the year! If you think you haven’t gotten to know your roommates that well yet, this is the perfect weekend for it!

Food

WHAT BETTER WAY TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH A PERSON THAN THROUGH THEIR LOVE OF FOOD. That being said, it’s always better to have two pairs of hands on deck instead of one in the kitchen. You can cook a more elaborate meal and reap the rewards together (a delicious meal)! Or you can do some grocery shopping together and learn more about each other’s favorite foods, least favorite food, and etc (like their signature favorite weird food combination 😂)

Do Something Nice For Them

Who wouldn’t appreciate a nice gesture in these trying times? Is your roommate running late to work or school (and you happen to be free)? Maybe you could drop them off! Are you both staying up late to study? You could offer to buy them a (coffee or tea) drink if you’re on your way out. You don’t have to go out of your way to do something, just if you are going to do something nice for yourself, it’d be nice to include your roommate as well. \(^-^)/

Have a Day Out (or In)

Probably the best way to bond with your roommate is to do something fun with them. Are you all hungry and no one wants to cook anything? Treat yourselves to a meal and get some dessert together afterwards! Do you all live near the beach? Spend the day at the beach! Is there a mall nearby? Do some window shopping together! If all of you are homebodies, that’s no problem at all! Bust out some video games or Netflix and scrounge up some food because you’re about to get to know each other in some new ways. Friendships are forged in the crucible of Super Smash Bros . . . or finding out that your roommate roots for the same ships that you ship. 😮🔥❤️

 

Chances are that your roommate wants to get to know you as much as you want to get to know them. It’s just that sometimes, you have to be the brave one to get things started!

Recipes Worth Trying If You Want To Cook More

Cooking is a struggle when you have other things to take care of (#collegelife). Ideally, you’d like to make your own food and eat it, which can take some time. But don’t worry. It’s just baby steps! First, step into your Kapi Apartment kitchen and 🔥 up that stove!!

Fish(stick) Tacos

It’s simple! It’s easy! And it’s delicious! All you need for ingredients are:

24 frozen fish sticks

1 cup of shredded lettuce

½ cup of chopped onion

¼ cup of chopped tomatoes

1 package of corn tortillas

1 package of sour cream

Lemons and Tapatio hot sauce recommended.

Directions:

  1. Heat the fish sticks in the microwave for 1-2 minutes
  2. Pour a little bit of cooking oil in a pan and put it on a stove (medium-high heat). Let the pan warm up.
  3. Take the fish sticks out of the microwave and put them into the pan to fry (so that the breading on the fish sticks becomes crispy) for about 3-4 minutes. Make sure to flip the fishsticks over so that they do not burn on one side.
  4. Put the fish sticks on a plate to cool and pour a little bit of oil into the pan. Swirl the oil until the surface of the pan is coated evenly.
  5. Cook the tortillas
  6. Plate the tortillas (double up on the tortillas if you don’t want your taco to break) and place 2-33 fishsticks on each tortilla.
  7. Top with lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. (Add lemon juice and hot sauce for more flavor)
  8. Enjoy!

California Rowl

Who doesn’t love a good california roll? It’s tasty and healthy! But if your sushi making skills aren’t up to standard, try making a bowl instead. You’ll need:

1-1.5 cups of rice

2 tablespoons of rice/sushi vinegar

½ cup of chopped imitation crab

¼ cup of sliced cucumber

1 avocado

½ tablespoon of shoyu or low-sodium soy sauce

½ tablespoon of mayo

A little bit of sesame oil

Wasabi

Chopped green onion (optional)

Crispy fried onion (optional)

Directions:

  1. Steam the rice in a pan with a lid or in a rice cooker. To make sure the rice is cooked properly, measure an equal portion of rice and water prior to steaming
  2. Make imitation crab salad by mixing the chopped imitation crab and mayo together.
  3. Make the shoyu/soy sauce condiment by mixing the shoyu/soy sauce with the sesame oil. Set it aside for later.
  4. Once the rice is properly cooked, transfer it into a bowl big enough for mixing and cool it down. When the rice is coolled, mix in the rice/sushi vinegar. You’ll notice that the rice will become stickier and smell sweeter.
  5. Get two big scoops of rice in a bowl. Top with imitation crab salad, cucumber, and sliced avocado.
  6. Mix in a little of the shoyu/soy sauce condiment (add more later if you see fit) and wasabi (optional)
  7. Top with chopped green onion (for a refreshing taste) or crispy fried onion.
  8. Enjoy!

Miso Udon Carbonara

We’re getting fancy here! This Asian fusion dish takes a little bit of effort to make, but the end results will be delicious! If you want a challenge, give this a try! What you will need:

1 package of frozen sanuki udon noodles

1 package of enoki mushrooms

4 strips of bacon

2 egg yolks

1-1.5 cups of shredded parmesan cheese

1.5-2 cups of heavy cream or half and half

½ cup of chopped green onion

1 tablespoon of miso paste

1 teaspoon of shoyu or low sodium soy sauce

1 teaspoon of black pepper

1 teaspoon of chopped garlic

A pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Boil some water in a pot and drop 3 blocks of the sanuki udon noodles into the boiling water. Let it boil for 5 minutes
  2. Drain the noodles and rinse them. Set the udon noodles aside for later.
  3. Fry the bacon. Let them cool before you chop them up into pieces. Set them aside for later.
  4. Wash the enoki mushrooms and cut off the bottom. Make sure to try and separate the stems so that you do not end up with a block of mushrooms.
  5. Pour some cooking oil into a pan and swirl until the surface is coated evenly. Let the pan heat up and pour in the shoyu/soy sauce.
  6. Drop the mushrooms into the pan and cook them like how you would with stir fry. Afterwards, put the cooked mushrooms into a bowl and set it aside for later.
  7. Mix the egg yolk, cream/half and half, garlic, miso paste, salt, and pepper together to make the sauce. Stir until the mixture is mostly even. You might have small chunks of miso paste at the bottom and that is ok!
  8. Coat a pan with cooking oil and heat it up. Pour in your sauce mixture and stir for 2 minutes. Afterwards, slowly mix in your Parmesan cheese as you continue stirring.
  9. Mix in your udon noodles. Keep stirring.
  10. Add in your enoki mushrooms and half of your chopped bacon. Stir.
  11. Plate your noodles. Top with more bacon and some chopped green onions. Add some more black pepper if you want.
  12. Enjoy!

Getting Involved With Campus Organizations: Why You Should Give It A Try

Think joining a club or getting involved is not worth it? Maybe you just need a little convincing to get you out there in time for the next club rush on campus . . . 🤔

People Skills

Joining a campus organization is a great way to develop your people skills! You’d be interacting with peers and colleagues and working together towards a common goal, and in doing so, you could improve on skills like communication and work ethic, which are important when you find yourself working with others. If you already have those skills, then joining a club or campus organization would definitely help you improve on them so that you’re able to adapt to various types of groups and situations!

 

Broaden Your Horizons

Don’t limit your academic experience to just the classroom/lecture hall! If you want to network, campus organizations are a great way to get in touch with like-minded people and outside organizations that can help you get where you want to go, especially if you’re looking for a job in a specific field. But if your interests are more on the personal side, no worries! There’s a bunch of clubs out there doing cool and fun stuff. You have to maybe get out of your comfort zone a little and look around to get started!

 

Resume Building

Clubs and organizations look good on your resume! You’ll show employers that you’re dedicated and can handle multiple responsibilities at a time. Not only that, it’ll fill out your resume a bit, especially if it’s a little empty. In addition, if you do end up getting a leadership position in a campus organization that you joined, it’ll tell them that you’ve got good leadership skills, which is a point in your favor!

 

You’ll Have A Blast!

Need 👏 A 👏 Break 👏 From 👏 Your 👏 Studies? If yes, then join a club!! Make the most of your college years by going out and doing fun stuff with people you meet who might later become your friends! That is the most quintessential college experience you can get (aside from spiritually transcending midway through your midterm prep). You probably won’t get another chance like this after college, so while you still can, get out there and explore your passions! Meet cool people and see the world from their perspective! Develop your interests and make some memories!

It’s never too late to join a club or campus organization! All you need to do is keep an open mind and explore! Check out your interests, discover new hobbies, or further along your quest for personal development!

4 Simple Ways To Save On Food During College

Let’s be real. Buying food in college costs a lot of money. If you don’t have a meal plan and/or it’s just way too much for you, get savvy with some of these tips and see how you do!

 

Food Pantries

Due to rising food costs, many schools have opened up food pantries in recent years to help students get the necessities they need. A lot of these food pantries are student-initiated and designed so that students in need can get access to fresh produce, canned and dried goods, bread, hygiene products, and etc. All you need is your student ID card. So if you can, check to see where your school food pantry is located on campus and drop by!

Cooking Your Own Meals

 

 

You have a beautiful and fully-equipped kitchen in your Kapi apartment, so why not put it to use? Cooking fresh food is a lot more affordable and budget-friendly than eating out or getting a school meal plan. And the best part? You get to cook whatever you want! The sky’s the limit! You can look for new recipes online to try out or you can cook your favorite eats! If you don’t have the time to cook every meal, no worries! Try prepping your food at the start of week and storing it in your freezer. You’ll be saving money, you get delicious food out of it, and you can feel good that you cooked a meal! It’s a win-win-win for you!

Couponing and Sales

Yes, groceries are expensive, but you have to eat to survive, right? If you don’t want to break your bank every week, check out the sales at your local grocery store. It’d be even better if you had some coupons with you to get some discounts (because every cent counts) so check your mailers to see what’s on sale and what’s not before you throw them away! Also, some places do offer discounts on food if you have a valid student ID!

Make A Food Budget

If you have a problem with eating out all the time and not having enough money left over for necessities, try making a budget plan. Make sure you buy what you need first (groceries, hygiene products, gas, etc) and deposit some of the money left over into a rainy day nest egg. Of course, you should check what your local market has to offer so that you can budget accordingly. Hopefully, it will encourage you to pick up some healthier habits as well. But for the most part, a budget plan only works if you stick to it, so try your best!

It might not be much, but if you use that college student mentality, you can make anything possible.💪😂 You got this. Eat smart!

Places to Hit On Spring Break

If you need an idea for where you want to go for this Spring Break, check out some of these beautiful destinations!

San Francisco

From the sights to the food, you definitely won’t run out things to do up in San Francisco during Spring Break! You can check out the view at the Golden Gate Bridge, have fun at the beach at Half Moon Bay and Fisherman’s Wharf, and visit some historical spots like Alcatraz and Chinatown. There’s a lot more to do actually, and this short description isn’t doing San Francisco a lot of justice, but you should definitely go at this time in spring! The tourist crowds won’t be around until late spring/early summer, so you can explore to your heart’s content. Just bring a jacket because it can get chilly!

Big Sur

Big Sur is beautiful all year round! You got natural hiking trails with waterfalls in state parks and beaches by the coast to check out (pretty sure it’s kind of chilly to go scuba diving, but no one’s telling you no 😜). If you want to surround yourself in nature, Big Sur is the place to be. It’s the perfect halfway point between Northern and Southern California, so if you have time to visit, you should definitely go this Spring Break!

Santa Monica

If you like to hang by the beach and surf, swim, people-watch, or any of the fun thing you’d do at the beach, then come on down to Santa Monica! You should go check out the world-famous Santa Monica Pier and all the fun attractions. Go on the ferris wheel and enjoy the view above! Have a blast on the carnival rides and roller coaster! The pier (and the surrounding area) also has a lot of great dining options, so definitely head on over the local eateries if you plan on making a visit! It can get really fun with all the spring breakers around!

Hearst Castle

Located in San Simeon, California, Hearst Castle is definitely a sight to behold. It was built in 1919 for a newspaper magnate, and when he passed away, it was converted into a state park! They usually give tours to the public, but in the spring, you can visit it at night when they light it up! The view all around is absolutely beautiful and you can visit the beaches, state parks, and marine sanctuaries in San Simeon, or branch out and explore the wider San Luis Obispo County!

Ready to go? It’s a whole wide world out there and you gotta see as much as you can while you can! So get out there, explore, and have some fun during this Spring Break!

6 Things You Should Keep in Mind When Searching For Housing

Apartment hunting can be a headache. There are so many things to consider that you might not know where to begin. To help along the process, check out these things you should be on the lookout during your housing search!

Make Sure You Can Afford It

Make sure the place you are looking at is in your budget. You might be dazzled by the recessed lighting and huge shower, but when you’re finding yourself struggling to pay rent, you won’t be so dazzled anymore. If you’re going to be rooming with someone, make sure the apartment is in their budget range as well. You don’t want to find yourself paying their share of the rent either just to keep a roof above your head.  During college, rooming with your friends is the best option to achieve a comfortable and affordable apartment.  If your friends are not looking for housing at the same time as you, there is no problem! Housing companies like Kapi Residences make sure to find the ideal roommates for you and make your search easier.

The Commute

How far is it from school or work? How bad is the daily traffic? Is there public transport? Questions like these make or break your housing decisions. So first, you’ll want to find out about how long your commute is (from point A to point B) and how much your rent costs. Sometimes, things work out and you’ll get a situation where rent is affordable, and your place is close to your school/workplace. Other times, you’ll get situations where you must decide if you want to live in a more expensive apartment, but your commute is shorter, or in a more affordable apartment with a longer commute. These things take time to plan out. You should probably think it through before you decide.

Are Your Utilities Covered?

Check if your utilities are covered. Water, gas, power, Wi-Fi, etc. It would be a real downer to find out at the last moment that you have to readjust your budget because you must take care of your utilities yourself.  Having utilities covered is one of those small things that will take a big weight off your shoulders.

The Community

Is it a student community? Or are there a lot of families who live nearby? What about the surrounding neighborhood? A good community is something to consider when you look for housing. You might want to live around people your age or you don’t want to find yourself trying to sleep while a party rages near you. Similarly, you could do with a quiet atmosphere that family communities provide, but you don’t want to deal with the traffic in your driveway as kids leave to get to school in time.

What About the Floor Plan?

How much space do you want and you need? What about bathrooms? Make sure you look into the different floor plans available (and their cost) so that you get the best possible deal.  If you are looking for a space just for yourself, think about how much space you will need.  A single bedroom?  Double, or triple?  It’s important to think through these options to avoid future regrets.

Parking

If you need a place to park your car, you’d prefer it if you didn’t have to compete with your neighbors to find a space to park your vehicles. But you also wouldn’t like it if most of the parking spaces available were on the street or shared with a nearby establishment. So . . . just something to consider when you are looking into housing.

Kapi Residences has a wide range of options for you to choose from to fit your lifestyle! Take a look online at the Kapi Residences web page or call and ask about any specific questions you might have about the apartments!

Ever Thought About How You Could Give Back to the Community?

When you move out this spring, take some time to consider what you want to leave behind. If you remember, Kapi Residences supply you with bed sheets, towels, and pillows, which you can take or donate once you move out.

 

Kapi Residences also gives you the options of leaving these amenities behind, along with anything you might not need or want after moving out. These items could be old clothes, extra footwear, etc. Afterwards, everything left behind is donated to local homeless shelters, along with extra pieces of furniture and other household items.  These can be redistributed back into the neighborhood through the organization’s outreach efforts to aid and supply homeless shelters and needy communities.

Delivering Donations

You might have some questions about why Kapi Residences is putting so much effort into getting people to donate. Or just wondering how donating helps. It’s ok.  In fact, we at Kapi Residences are glad that you are curious! Kapi Residences has started making donations to homeless shelters in LA, Riverside, and San Francisco. We always want to encourage our residents to be able to give back to the community. Just last year, the total amount of donations made to the OC Rescue Mission by our residents summed up to $97,000. Kapi Residences residents are amazing!

 

 

But how does donating help? Well, starting with your donation, you could help keep homeless shelters in California supplied with blankets, bed sheets, and pillows. This can create warm and safe places for homeless people to sleep in and reduce the number of people sleeping in the streets. Your old clothes and shoes will go to someone who needs them, which is a considerably better outcome than throwing your unwanted clothes in a closet. In addition, your donation would be helping to keep the programs that shelter and house the homeless running.  Most of them are non-profit and rely on donations from the community to keep going.

Dropping off donations

If you can donate something, that’s great! It’s for a good cause that gives back to our community and you’ll be helping to put smiles on many, many faces. That’s a win-win situation right there! If you want some more information about donating, contact Kapi Residences and ask what you can leave behind when the time comes for you to move out.

As a student housing provider, we understand the importance and need of a roof and a place to live.  We are very grateful for all our residents’ support to this cause.

4 Fun Games To Enjoy With Your Roommates

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.

If you’re planning a fun and chill night with your roommates and Jenga is not cutting it anymore, have a blast by giving one of these games a try!

PARANOIA

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

MASTERPIECE

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

CHARADES

You can never go wrong with this classic game. It’s easy, no fuss, and you’ll get some really good laughs with your roommates 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 roommates 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 your awesome roommates! You’ve been working hard and you deserve it! 💪

How To: Master The Art of Tea And Coffe

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.

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

representing Tea

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!

 

Picture representing valentines day

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. 😂💖
