Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Ari Tooch ’19. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.
Best meal I’ve ever eaten, dang this is a hard one. I really, really love eating. Part of the reason why I love Los Angeles, my hometown, is because there is such a large variety of food. I think I have to go with my favorite restaurants in LA, one a Japanese place and one an Italian place. There’s this whole in a wall Japanese place by my house with the best udon and vegetable tempura that I’ve ever had (mostly because I dont eat fish and I keep kosher). I go there all the time with my best friends from home. The other place is an Italian place in Beverly Hills, which sounds extra but I ate there the first time for my Friday night Bat Mitzvah service. I loved it mostly because my grandma got super drunk and told me how proud she was of me. They also have really good chicken marsala.
These are hard questions! I’m very loud and I laugh a lot. I think the time I laugh the most is when I’m on the phone with my mom. We have a very specific humor, and I can twist the most mundane situations into funny events to tell her. So I’ll talk to her about something that’s bothering me, and in explaining it to her it’ll turn into something so hysterical that we’ll both be cracking up.
