Ah, the great college experience. High schoolers dream of it, college students go into debt for it, and parents go to jail for it. Today I take you on a tour of my college campus, reflect on the ups and downs of my college experience as a UCLA film major, talk about how I graduated in less than 3 years, ask whether film school is really worth it, and give my two cents on the recent surge in influencers endorsing dropping out of college.

I am a freshman in college too. I moved by myself (no friends, no family) to a city I had only visited and seen for like six days before coming here. Honestly there’s been many weeks where I felt suicidal because I felt like I didn’t mattered.
I had made some friends, but they wouldn’t support me to carpool me to go out with them (even if offering to pay them for carpool; Uber’s extremely unsafe for women here). And I’ve been feeling a bit left out.
The common branch (general education) is stressing me out because my last year of high school I was no longer interested in stuff or classes that weren’t related to animation or film making, so coming here and being forced to be graded on classes that I don’t have many strengths in is overwhelming.
My friends who stayed in our home city are stressed as well, but don’t seem to have as many emotional breakdowns as me (every time I felt frustrated I’d write to them and they would listen/read my problems and offer support). It makes me sad to feel like talking about those issues, with my friends in this city, they would disregard them immediately and not offer the support like my friends from high school.

Everything you talked about the video I could relate. When you were talking about having dreamt about going to college and that time being your salvation from high school, I felt it. I’ve been wanting to go to college since middle school because I had known animation was and IS my passion.
But talking about being disappointed about not enjoying the college experience made me feel less guilty cause it meant that I wasn’t alone in that disappointment.

I absolutely love your videos’ subjects and the editing and the visuals (your outfits are top tier fashion goals, you deserve that channel name tbh). I look forward to knowing more experiences through you and thank you so much for this video! I was searching videos about “the college experience” to see what I am missing out on and what to work out. You’ve given me a new perspective on the subject, and now I know what to do.



PS.: It occured to me as I was writing, could you make a video on where you buy your clothes? I struggle with learning how to feel more comfortable and good-looking (for myself) with the clothes I have; I’d like to learn a bit more on better fashion shops!

PS. (2): When looking at those posters it made me feel happy because my college’s animation building has some (not as many as there) posters with little rectangles with the students’ graduation year, career, and credit in the movie. Let’s believe someday our schools’ will have a new poster because of us.

I'm going to the University of Alberta, and my total education cost for all four years is going to be $40 000, and most of that is going to be paid off by my RESP. Bless Canada.

I felt the same way my freshman year of college! :(

This made me feel way less embarrassed about how miserable my freshman year was. I’m so glad you shared that. Unfortunately I couldn’t stick it out at my 4 year but I’m glad you did.

Tell me why when u said “I was admitted in 2016... and I wanted to graduate in 3 years” I thought that meant you’d graduated in 2017. It’s 1 am and I cannot math 😑

As a 4th year UCLA student, I really felt that "best and worst years of my life." UCLA has really put me through a ton of shit. Emotionally, I went through a lot of what you went through which really sucked, but I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who has felt that way and that you were able to push through it as I'm trying to do now. It's very rare to hear anybody be as honest about it as you were, and I really appreciated that.
Anyways, good luck and keep grinding!

Come apartment hunting with me in Los Angeles! It’s been a dream of mine since I was a kid to have my own cute little apartment and I’m finally moving! Ahh! In this vlog, I take y’all on a couple apartment tours of cozy studios and vintage one bedrooms in Fairfax and Carthay Square (aka mid-city LA). I cover the apartment hunting and application process from start to finish, including the cost of rent, LA neighborhoods, tips on staying organized, and scammy apartment companies.
