Loop up. Now. Because this is as pretty as UCSB will be all year. And I’m not talking about the flowers.

Look at your fellow students. We’ve all got our rich summer tans, carefree eyes and beach volleyball physiques.

Enjoy it now. Summer becomes fall, daydreams become all-nighters and beach blankets become beer bongs. Our brains will swell along with our bellies. Our knowledge will grow wider and our skin will grow whiter.

So if there’s someone in your class you think is cute, say hello to them now. Get to know them now. Because they’ll never look better.

Friday’s forecast: Hot, for a while.
