What Your Favorite USC Library Says About You
Start writing a post

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 began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
