12 Thoughts You Have Before Meeting Up with Your High School Bestie

If you live close to UCLA, you might be lucky enough to have seen your high school bestie recently before summer  over spring break or a weekend, perhaps. But for those of us who live too far away to go home on the reg, meeting up with old friends can prove more challenging, especially if they are on the semester system. Here are 12 thoughts that run through our minds before meeting up with our high school BFF after months of separation.

“I can’t believe I’m finally going to see him/her again!”

10 Shows to Marathon This Summer

Jessica Korn / Daily Bruin

Finally, it’s summertime: no more deadlines, no more exams and we can binge watch all of the TV shows we’ve missed, guilt free. Netflix takes up about 96 percent of my life, so it’s hard to limit myself to just 10 shows to recommend, but I think I’ve compiled a pretty binge-worthy list. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve already marathoned all of these, and I can’t emphasize this enough: If you haven’t seen these shows, your life is incomplete, and you will only be whole once you watch all of them.

Letter From the Editor

Oh hello there, lovely Mojo readers!

I just wanted to introduce myself because I’ll be editing the content on Mojo this year. I’m a third-year economics and geography student from Torrance, which is about 30 minutes south of UCLA without traffic (but let’s be real, there’s ALWAYS traffic). When I’m not blogging for Mojo, I like taking selfies with my cat, playing board games, going for long walks on the beach (yes, actually) and binge watching new TV series.

What Now? (2014 Commencement Edition)

Oh dear.

You’re graduating.

This is a disaster! Now you’ll never be James Franco. You can’t even be Ben Stiller, or any of our famous dropouts-turned-stars. I know you’ve worked hard over the last four years for that diploma, but you still have a chance!

So run, Forrest, run! Run for the hills and hide! Declare another major, tell the registrar that you actually flunked one of your GEs back in your first year; do anything, anything at all that would let you stay for just another year.
