Firsts and lasts

 Comments Off on Firsts and lasts Tags: , , , , ,

There is a significance about firsts: a baby’s first word, a first time flying, the first day at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. According to my mom, my first word was mov, which means food in Hmong and is probably the reason why I pursued a career in both dietetics and communication. My first time […]


A bittersweet relationship

Dear UWSP, Though I love you very much, and we have shared many memories together, we must part ways. It’s not you; it’s me. Right now I need to focus on my career. I hope you understand and that we can still see each other from time to time. Much love, Song There comes that […]


A well-accomplished April

 Comments Off on A well-accomplished April Tags: , , , , , ,

Though this April felt much more like winter than spring, I feel my career is beginning to bloom. Aside from being accepted into a dietetics internship in Keene, New Hampshire (more about that soon!), the Student Association of Nutrition and Dietetics (SAND) successfully executed its inaugural Bite-Sized Cook-Off on April 5 and the Wisconsin Academy […]


Technology brat

I’ve always known I was a nerd, but now I have come to embrace the geek side of me. (As weird as it sounds, there is a difference between the two.) This year more than any other, I’ve found myself using technology more and more in every aspect of my life. In the classroom, I […]


The light at the end of the tunnel

 Comments Off on The light at the end of the tunnel Tags: , ,

Over winter break, I was going through some of the “stuff” I’ve collected over the years. Tucked neatly away in one of my dust-settled crates of papers, I found my acceptance letter to UW-Stevens Point along with my orientation packet. Memories flooded my mind and even for someone with as big of an imagination as […]


Wrapping things up

Presents aren’t the only thing I’m wrapping up these days. The semester is finally coming to an end! Though I will get to put my feet up and ween off of the coffee I’ve been drugging myself with all semester, there is still much to be done. In the next couple months, I will be […]


Watch out Iron Chef!

 Comments Off on Watch out Iron Chef! Tags: , , , , ,

I look at the clock and there are 10 minutes left. My heart is pounding and I’m sure everyone within a mile can hear it, yet I calmly give directions: plate the pumpkin cheesecake and garnish it with whipped cream and a mint leaf. I can only imagine how the Iron Chef contestants feel. Being […]


Networking: Speed-Dating Style

 Comments Off on Networking: Speed-Dating Style Tags: , , , , ,

Two of our student bloggers attended the Reaching Across Generations (RXG) mentoring program at UW-Stevens Point. Let’s hear what happened at one of their networking events… By Song: Speed dating has been crossed off my bucket list. Ok, so it wasn’t really speed dating but it was what I imagined a speed dating session would […]


Food for Thought

 Comments Off on Food for Thought Tags: , , , , ,

I have always enjoyed food, travel and learning. You can probably only imagine my excitement when I was able to attend the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Food and Nutrition Conference and Exposition (FNCE) in Philadelphia this year with nine other UW-Stevens Point students. I was fortunate enough to attend last year’s conference in San […]


The super powers of a bike

 Comments Off on The super powers of a bike Tags: ,

If I could have any super powers, I would want to be able to teleport. Just imagine the things I can accomplish with the time having to drive somewhere and find parking, not to mention avoiding those parking tickets. I also wouldn’t have to worry about leaving extra early to walk there. Well, since I […]
