Made a new year, new me resolution? UCSD Tzu Ching’s kicking things off with a bang! This time, we’re going to Cowles Mountain, the highest point in San Diego county. It’s a 3-mile hike with a big elevation gain; not exactly a cakewalk, but doable for all levels. At the top, we’ll be able to see a great 360 degree view of San Diego. Should be fun!

Weekly Wisdom Reflection by Jessica Yeung:
Life is a journey. Along the way, you meet many teachers who teach you different things. How you speculate a teacher if they are good are not is speculative, but many can agree that those who had a positive impression and great explanations of their subject are the ones that helped them the most with career-oriented goals. Also, in between, you have opportunities to meet more people to share your experiences and you learn who you can trust during happy and in hard times. Knowing that you have someone or a group of people you care about who cares about you, such as a friend or family, can be the greatest source of support towards a fulfilling journey. I’d encourage y’all to think positively and meet more amazing people.
