I’m Going Going, Back Back, to Cali Cali

It is time to make the pilgrimage back to my promise land! It’s been so long since I’ve been to So cal (or a beach for that matter), the reality of my trip may cause for my brain to combust from shear excitement. Being a So Cal native, it’s hard not to live there anymore, and with my work schedule it’s very hard to get back even though it’s a mere 3 hours away. So close, but so far. Back in college I remember my AZ friends saying that Californians were arrogant. My thought was always “you’d be arrogant if you lived there too.” I mean c’mon, where else can you drive literally 2 hours in any direction and hit multiple geographic regions (i.e desert, mountains, beach, etc.) There’s so much to do there, that if you get bored, get in the car and drive and you can find some new adventure to get into. Plus the mild weather, ugh how I miss the glorious weather! Living in Satan’s Butt crack makes me long for a normal summer.

Since it’s the tail end of summer, this trip could not have come at a better time. I will help a good friend spend her last weekend before her law school adventure begins. My destination will be SD and I plan on enjoying every single minute of it. One of these days I will get back to the land that I love permanently.¬†Now, I shall go caffeinate and get ready for some shenanigans! California or bust!

Morning Coffee

I am not a morning person, but I am trying to change my ways. So recently I’ve started getting up very early to walk my dog because I live in a place that’s ¬†temperature is comparable to Satan’s butt crack. Even at 4:30am it’s already 80 degrees. Being the caffeinated junkie that I am, brewing coffee in the morning has lessened my Starbucks dependence. Well, only slightly because it’s treat receipt time and I’m a sucker for a deal. Anyway, I take that time to reflect; to get away from all electronic distractions and focus on my deeds for the day. Aside from getting my work duties done, I am really excited to start on my “25 things list”. I’ll admit I haven’t been the most social on my personal time because I’m always around people work-wise. A lot of the time I like to hole up in my apartment with my pup and catch up on IQ-dropping television. But not today! I shall conquer the world and take no prisoners! I’m aiming to have a funny story to share by the end of the day. On that note, I hope everyone has a beautiful Monday and that your day is full of laughter and joy!
