What Your Favorite USC Library Says About You

Whether we'd like to believe it or not, the new school year is nearly upon us. Though the start of the school year will bring with it friends, involvement, and positive learning experiences, it will also bring deadlines and assignments, which, hopefully, won't all fall on the same dates. Let's face it--in no time at all, the peaceful sunsets of summer will turn into a few long, busy nights in the library. So, without further ado, let's see what your favorite USC library says about you:

1. Doheny Memorial Library: "The classy one"

People may call you pretentious, but you're truly just a fancy, cultured person by nature. You're the kind of person who enjoys listening to opera and drinking wine in the bathtub to unwind after a long day. You have impeccable taste in literature, and you often immerse yourself in historical documentaries. You dress like a businessperson to go to class even if your major isn't business. You don't use social media because it's too superficial. You strongly identify with Jordan Schlansky from Conan.

2. Leavey Library: "The daredevil"

When you have an eight page paper to write for a class, you'll strategically put it off until the night before so that you can just "crank it out." You're going to defy the limits of human caffeine consumption in the process and spend at least 25% of the little time you have procrastinating on social media or Netflix. You're the kind of person who went skydiving on your 18th birthday, pulls off Ferris Bueller-level heists to get out of class, and successfully wings all of your interviews.

3. VKC Library: "The recluse"

You're a dark, mysterious genius who can only work with complete silence. When you study, you require an entire table of work space for your laptop, 3 textbooks, 5 notebooks, planner, 2 Starbucks drinks, and water bottle. You will remain in your seat for hours and people wonder if you are capable of primal human functions. In your spare time, you can be found people watching, hacking computers for pleasure, and discreetly getting the highest grade in your 300 person lecture class.

4. Hoose Library of Philosophy: “The hipster”

You're not a philosophy major, but judging by your twitter feed, contemplating the purpose of life is something you do often, along with posting artsy selfies and pictures of street art and expensive coffee. You ride a unicycle to class and your dorm room is adorned with polaroid pictures of birds, decorative records, and minimalistic Wes Anderson posters.

5. Law Library: “The smug overachiever”

You study in the Law Library as an undergrad student because you prefer the refined, mature vibes of graduate students. You spent your youth winning the Scripps National Spelling Bee and your local science fair multiple times. You're a straight A student who hardly shows up to class. You're the president of five clubs. You've held many of these club meetings on the roof of SGM without being caught. When you visited the job fair, each company you talked to offered you an interview on the spot.

6. Science and Engineering Library: “The sleepless”

You got into MIT but chose to come to USC because you have a strong "west coast best coast" philosophy. Between partying and taking some of the most rigorous science and math classes on campus, you're "literally so exhausted." People tell you that your hard work will pay off when you're looking for jobs, and though you know they're right, you wonder if it's worth the countless all nighters and days without showering.

7. Cinematic Arts Library: “The visionary”

At any given time, you have the most creative solution to a problem. You sometimes sport a beret, openly talk about your emotions, and own a plethora of autographed Star Wars merchandise. You have strong opinions about whether or not The Shape of Water deserved Best Picture and own a t-shirt that says "Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino." You have a car on campus just for your camera equipment.

8. Music Library: “The cool one”

Classical music student by day, rockstar by night. You have thousands of Insta-fans and probably play in a band at house parties on the weekends. You can typically be spotted wearing a denim jacket covered in patches, nonchalantly impressing your classmates with your new mixtape, and talking about how vinyl is "soooo much better than digital." You have tattoos in places that would shock people.

9. Special Collections: “The perfectionist”

You make formal appointments to browse Special Collections. You plan everything far in advance. You demonstrate outstanding dedication every time you visit this place because you just need that rare copy, or you simply won't do without looking at genuine historical documents during your research. During group projects, you're the one doing all the work (sigh). You swear by the Passion Planner. Your professors trust you with their lives.

10. Gerontology Library: “The ninja”

Where are you, Gerontology students? Where?

Have a great year of studying, everyone. Fight on!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
