The Parhelic Postcard Files (Coming Soon!)
Portland and Pasadena--a summer at Intel Oregon and some junior-year chemistry at Caltech. An intense undertaking involving: adventures in experimental cooking and event-hosting, late nights of slightly awkward social dancing and stamina-crunching problem sets, plus music, novel-writing, art, and (I do exaggerate, but very barely) some of everything in between!

Food, naps, art, dance, and music are just a few of my passions that I’ve encountered in abundance during my first months at Caltech. Please, remove your shoes, step inside, and join me as I attempt to finish off $475 of d-bal, 36 bowls of rice, and 51 units of pass/fail!

Join me for what critics are hailing as “a swashbuckling adventure for the ages…a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat…the work of a true literary genius.” Well, not quite. But join me anyways! I promise it will still be an adventure…after all, being at Caltech is never anything but interesting.
