Becca Grumet

Becca lives in Los Angeles. She put that first because it is probably the coolest thing about her. She was born in the hot mess that is West Palm Beach, Florida, though wouldn't mind living in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana. She attempts to blog every once in awhile, but mainly just sits around by the TV waiting for "Community" to come on. Oh, and she also likes to make movies in the production program at USC. Trojans.

Everyone Blows Off Last Week of Classes, Goes to Disneyland Instead

"I've actually decided to drop my major and dance in the parade full time now that I've spent the week at Disneyland," said a very excited theater major. "It's just such a lifestyle here." For some reason, we totally agreed with everything she said and blamed it on creepily persuasive Disney magic. MORE »

15 Things I’m Thankful For

Because time moves too quickly in college I’m not really sure what Thanksgiving is about anymore (pilgrims?? Genocide? I dunno), but the one thing I do recall is that people say what they’re thankful for, and so I’ve compiled a list to read out at the dinner table tomorrow: 1. The Mucho Mango smoothie at the SCA...

5 Antisocial Things to do on Halloween

Um, somehow it became Halloween. I’m not sure when that happened, and I’ve decided it’s probably because I have no social life. Whoops. Therefore!

Finally. After several weeks in the high 80s to mid 90s, the LA weather forecast not only dropped down to the usual 70s, but predicted scattered thunderstorms with a 50% chance of rain for this Thursday, otherwise known as tomorrow. “Aw man!” exclaimed some lame guy in Ray Bans next to me upon hearing the...

Young Adult Novels are Totally Cool

I have a confession to make: I never grew up. At least, with books. I mean, I’ve tried to read the classics and textbooks for school and weird angsty poetry but something always brings me back to the good ol’ days of hiding behind the awesomeness of the YA novel. Yes, even now in college.... MORE »
