No matter who your parents are, there are a few things that you can do to drastically increase the chance of having them say "YES" rather then "NO." Drastically! Parents love to pretend they are cool and collected, but in reality, they are very predictable.
So much so that I guarantee that if you read the tips below, you can improve your life in several ways! Nothing gets you a faster "No" from parents than giving them a feeling that they owe you or that you "deserve" things.
So, when you ask for something, use an equal amount of gratitude and an equal amount of asking. The point is not to trick your parents into thinking you care; the point is that appreciation spreads good will, which will certainly come back to you. One thing your parents care about, whether they admit it or not, is how they appear to others. This request sounds appreciative, responsible and like you're a kid that knows the value of money. The main thing you will need to prove to them is that you're mature enough to deserve that thing you want. If you show that you want to contribute to the family and don't resent your responsibilities, you will start to be seen in a whole different light -- a more grown-up light.
This will give Dad (or Mom) time to consider what you want, and also make you look more mature by showing that you are patient enough to wait a day for the reply.
Setting the stage for any question you want to pop is a key to increasing the odds for "Yes"!
Your persistence will most likely not be annoying or be regarded as questioning your parent's authority; It will actually be seen as an adult way of taking responsibility and going after what you want. For more tips, get three chapters of my upcoming book, How to Get Your Parents to Agree with You on Almost Everything, free! I’m writing this to tell you why you have to take ME104S: Designing Your Stanford, or as we normally refer to it DYS.
You’ll do things like talk to a potential major advisor, create mind maps about what you want to do, and practice the art of storytelling… DYS will provide you with incredible mentoring, and introduce you to a host of other awesome students.
Here’s a recap of everything you’ve been missing in the entertainment-sphere if you’ve been hiding under a rock-no judgment here. An exciting book-to-film is coming out this summer!  No, not Fifty Shades of Grey, I do have some dignity…it’s The Fault in Our Stars!  Shailene Woodley plays Hazel (or as Augustus lovingly calls her, Hazel Grace)-proving that one can star in an incredibly banal show, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and still be a good actress. If you’re actually looking for a smart show, may I recommend The Good Wife?  With its spitfire writing, power-house acting, and complex turns it may be the smartest show on right now.  That’s saying a lot, as TV is more like a stimulating lube tube right now for the mind, with provocative shows like Girls, Breaking Bad, and Homeland, than its previously condescending title. Three films that are worth seeing all deal with survival in environments and times that are most trying.  It is in these instances, it seems, that we discover who we truly are and what we are willing to fight for. It doesn’t take a genius to see how attractive you are, but if it did, I would be overqualified. Be sure to stay sober and keep it classy, though.  Nobody wants to see you come into your dorm like a wrecking ball. I’ve written this course guide for over a year now (except for last Spring  – sorry for any of you who looked for it, I kind of dropped the ball.
An incredible new product is ready to launch here on campus and change the way that Stanford innovators are able to promote their work. As developers know, the app store has become a sea of over 700,000 apps, each competing to get on the “featured” page to drive downloads. The platform is designed with a built-in feedback tool for users to rate their experience, giving the developers analytics and data which provide much deeper insights than the App Store.
If you have any other questions, want to network with us, or want to join our team, we’d love to talk. We have a long and time-honored tradition here at TUSB of suggesting dorm themes for the upcoming year, which can be found here: Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV. Special thanks to Jasmine, who helped come up with a lot of these; you’re a great person to bounce ideas off of, not only for this post, but in life as well. As a graduating senior, I am so incredibly sad to say that this will be my last post for The Unofficial Stanford Blog.
This morning I tried to take a sip of my room key while attempting to open my door with an iced mocha.


Spring quarter is powerfully portrayed in the Stanford mental mythology as a time of never-ending frolicking.
As we all know (but apparently the rest of the world doesn’t), Stanford is not just a tech-startup incubator with a football team.
You are misinformed about the Stanford of today, but you didn’t make an effort to learn more about it. You may not have done your research, but I have, and I would like to clarify some of your points.
I’m no zealot for the start-up culture myself, but it must be contextualized to be understood. One of the most daunting aspects of being a female in the technical fields is the dearth of female role models. Sandberg’s credentials make her a prime role model and spokesperson for the modern feminist movement.
Our goal is to help you by delivering amazing quotes to bring inspiration, personal growth, love and happiness to your everyday life. Your parents will allow you to do more, trust you more and be more willing to see life from your perspective.
Sure, they are responsible for your well-being and all that, but this is not an exercise in fairness. Two things you can always offer are doing specific chores and getting better grades in specific topics. Saying, "I'll get better grades," is one thing, but it's much better to say, "I'll get better grades in History." You also actually have to mean it and do your part.
Adults often feel judged about their parenting skills, and any way you can help them to feel confident as parents is a good thing.
Offer to take on small responsibilities and always do what you said you would do and a tiny bit more. DYS is one of a very short list of classes I feel comfortable recommending to anyone and everyone (incidentally the others are CS106A and BIO150: Human Behavioral Biology).
The class is wildly entertaining and immediately applicable: the purpose is to optimize your Stanford experience, and you can start doing that right now. Best of all, the class meets just once a week and has minimal homework; the bang for your buck is off the charts.
Most claim that it was due to overzealous frosh (hint: you can’t sign up for classes until orientation. My bad.) and I have to say that each and every quarter of carefully combing through the Bulletin* leaves me freshly dumbstruck with the sheer number of delightful offerings this school continues to pump out.
Stanford Founder’s Showcase, or Stanford FoSho for short, is a platform designed to help Stanford developers gain recognition for their creations, let the rest of us to see the cool stuff that our fellow students are building every day, and provide dynamic, relevant content for life on the Farm. Without serious help in the right places, even the best apps can fail to get recognition, slowing their growth and limiting the hype they deserve. Even cooler – users don’t have to update the app to receive and access new content, meaning new stuff goes straight into users’ hands. All the apps and mobile sites pertaining directly to campus life will go on “Around Campus”, while other Stanford-built apps and cool stuff will go on the Developer’s Club page. Step 1 is to scour the area for apps being built right now and launch version one of Stanford FoSho, so we are hereby opening our first round of submissions for the platform.
You will be hearing from a member of our team in the following days after completing steps 1 and 2. To our knowledge, none of these themes have ever been used, although I would still really like to push for Adelfart.
Granted, most of my blog history has just been these puns (and this one about Cal that I’m proud of), but there’s still nothing more satisfying than seeing your stupid, ultimately inconsequential, thoughts and ideas circulating the internet for a day or two.
Space and resources are  slim pickins, and even if you manage to know the right people to book a venue and get the right gear, it’s tough to get students to commit to come out. In these sessions, we hop off the couch and explore some unique and unusual collaborations rather than capturing live concerts. There are a ton of passionate and talented artists of all kinds on this campus, and RCP is here to support them in ways that the university currently isn’t. For the sake of this article, I don’t think it’s really important to say which, as the things I want to talk about will focus on Stanford’s sororities as a whole.


Your parents care about one thing (having to do with you) almost more than anything: Your growing up into a responsible, happy adult. I love recommending DYS to all types of people because I know that no matter where they are in their Stanford careers and no matter what their interests or major are (or might be), this class will be valuable to you. Through a combination of presentations, creative exercises, and homework assignments putting the principles to practice, DYS shows you how to use design principles like “prototype and iterate” to get the most out of four short, dense years. However, like anything, the more you put in to DYS the more you will get back out of it (a lot more).
Please stop bogging down the server), overzealous-er upperclassmen (please don’t judge us for indulging our need to obsessively research and meticulously plan the remaining time in our academic careers),  the fact that the Stanford computing just has a general tendency to suck (Exhibit A: Old Axess. The platform will host student-built mobile apps, websites, and video, and will be available for download in the app store by the end of July. With this in mind, we envisioned a platform that was the first stop for any Stanford innovator when trying to get their creations airborne, providing valuable recognition from the Stanford community and useful feedback from the world’s techiest campus. Once we receive and approve an app, we plug it into the platform and it appears on the user’s device in real-time.
We’re still working on a third page which will change all the time depending on the time of year. You’re trying to convince yourself that your cutest pair of flats aren’t pinching your toes, your throat isn’t sore from talking, and your cheeks don’t hurt from persistent smiling. If you’re planning on going through girls’ rush, you’re going to hear a LOT about how “you should really pick the place that’s best for YOU”, and how you should just focus on “being yourself”.
Any way you can show them that you are moving in the right direction will help your case endlessly.
So while the class is very low commitment, I highly encourage you to take the homework seriously and dedicate real time to crafting your assignments. The win-win here is tremendous: developers get to hit the ground running with their innovations and Stanford students get a sneak peek at the next generation of the world’s best apps. Fall quarter will likely include resources for frosh, football, and other autumn-y things for life at Stanford, for example.
You can be a current student, recent grad, or anyone working on an app meant to serve the Stanford student body. Anyways, leave a comment below letting us know your favorites, or suggestions for even better themes! Currently, the Red Couch lives in a little venue called Do.Art Galleria in the Mission in San Francisco. You’re making PG-rated chitchat with the girls next you in line, notably those with last names of the same letter as your own. No offense to all of that, but it’s a little trite, and you’ve undoubtedly heard it all before. Believe me -- proud parents' hearts and wallets are much more likely to be open to your requests.
We moved the couch to provide Stanford artists with an opportunity to meet and perform with city artists who are doing art (in various forms) full-time. This is an article for those of you thinking about going through rush, maybe on the fence about sororities in general, maybe unsure of what exactly to expect from the whole process.
I want to give you some concrete advice, hopefully some of which that you haven’t  already heard before, that might actually help you figure out if Stanford’s sorority scene is right for you.
You all knew how each and every department at Stanford completely blew their course offerings out of the water this quarter.
The doors burst open and you hear the incessantly catchy lyrics of yet another anthem as you’re quickly ushered in. So I write this guide and hope that I can live vicariously through all you wonderful people who can collectively take them all for me. With that, I wish you a fantastic quarter full of vigorous and enlightening academic pursuits and the stress, anxiety, sleep-deprivation, loss of morale, and overall decline in physical and mental health that will inevitably accompany them.
