April Fool’s UCSD Style


I went to UCSD, the University of California, San Diego for those not familiar with the UC System. It was a great time, I met some of my best friends, had the beach in my back pocket, and total access to California burritos and Carne Asada fries.

Mmmmm. Carne Asada Fries. For those not familiar with this post-party delight, it is French Fries, topped with guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and you guessed it carne asada. Now, I’m not so sure how very Mexican the dish is, I’d say it’s San Diegan, but regardless, it’s delicious. Not exactly you’re everyday entree, but on occasion when calories are irrelevant, it hits the spot.

And the beach. It was right there. I don’t think I went enough, and I don’t mean this in a joking, “Haha, I had the beach and you suckers didn’t” sort of way, but as in “Really I DIDN’T go enough”. Now that I’m back up in the Bay Area where you need a jacket to go to the beach, and I’ll be moving to Dallas where there is NO beach, I appreciate the times when I got to see the bioluminescent waves and step on the sand and see it light up. So cool!

Anyway, I digress. So it turns out that my alma mater played a little April Fool’s joke on 28,000 applicants. Well, not really; more like an unintentational April Fool’s Joke. But they had a serious “administrative error” in which they sent out “Welcome” e-mails to 28,000 applicants, only having to send them a follow-up e-mail, saying “Oops, just kidding.” Way to go UCSD!

Our library was also named after Dr. Seuss, well, his real name Theodore Geisel.

Oh and if you are in California, sales tax went up today!

I wish that was the April Fool’s joke.

Happy Wednesday!

    I didn’t know you went to UCSD!

    And you just made me want carne asada fries. haha Good thing about San Diego is that basically anywhere you are there are at least 3 Mexican food options within a 1 mile radius. hah
