  • Have you met Emily?

    image

    Emily is a 4th year biological sciences major from Santa Maria, California.

    Emily, what was your most memorable working experience?
    This woman went to a lotion display table and saw that a sample bottle was missing. She started to become belligerent and started yelling at me and two other coworkers accusing us of slacking off and allowing our coworkers to steal. We eventually had to call put our manager and security manager to calm her down. I’ve never been accused of being an accomplice to theft or been called a “ditzy asian” before. It was a lovely experience. 

    Woah! Sorry sometimes that happens :(
    So why’d you decide to work at The Hill?
    Because I felt that the experience I would receive would be unique as is I applied to the Hill because I needed a job and I knew someone who had worked there. He said he would put a good word in for . Also it was a convenient place to work. 

    Do you have a favorite book?
    Of course the Harry Potter series. Those were my childhood. 

    What about your favorite movie?
    This is a hard one. No judging, but probably How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. I mean, he killed their love fern!

    Got any idols?
    My parents. No matter what life throws them they face it straight on and try their best to lessen the burden on me and my siblings. 

    Where do you study?
    CSL. Everyone needs to stop going there though so that I can have a room there all day. *proceeds to laugh out loud

    Any advice to future anteaters?
    If you think that college is going to be just a little harder than high school (like I did) then you are sadly mistaken. Do not underestimate the power of college level life. 

    Definitely true! College power. How about super powers for yourself?
    Teleportation. I’m too lazy to walk anywhere and I don’t like long car drives. 

    What’s your favorite food? Nom nom.
    It’s hard to choose a favorite food since I like eating in general. If I had to choose something then I’d say KBBQ. I’m a fatty. 

    We love KBBQ, too! What do you like to do in your free time?
    I’m a couch potato in my free time. 

    Thanks for sharing Emily!

    By Jazlyn Nguyen

    It has been a few weeks since my move-out day and I am struck in disbelief. Freshman year was definitely like a roller coaster ride with its ups and downs, but the memories it left me remain unforgettable.

    I still can’t believe my first year of college has gone by much faster…

    ^totes true.

  • The Marketing Team at The Hill absolutely loves Catbug. So much that we’ve started quoting it in our daily activities.

    Catbug is a character from CartoonHangover’s series Bravest Warriors. Here’s the link to the original video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFWb7…

    The video inspired to have recreate the drama scene with some of the plushies we carry in the store. Hope you like it. And a huge thank you to AdultHangover for bringing the world Catbug. Because sometimes when it gets tough we remind ourselves here at the marketing office that “everything is ok!”
