california dreaming

This past summer, after my summer classes, I decided to go to California in July to visit some myself. Here is a photo collection on my trip there. I had the time of my life and I definitely wouldn't mind moving there. 

A little late on the update, but late is better than never!

i. LGA → LAX

So I started my trip off with flying with Delta. I had a layover in Detroit but it was nothing special. My dad bought me a bunch of snacks to keep me entertained and I made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich so I didn't have to spend a thousand dollars on some dry nasty sandwich at the airport. It was my first time flying alone but I didn't really mind especially since my seatmates were more interested in their Kindles and taking a nap than bothering me. 


Everything seems prettier in California. And those Hi-Fi bites? Amazing. Let me not incriminate myself any further. I spend the majority of my time in Huntington and Newport, and even took a day trip to Venice Beach with my friends.

iii. tubby time.

I ate a lot there too. In-n-Out is not overrated. It's so good. It was heaven. I usually never even eat burgers. AND THOSE ANIMAL STYLE FRIESSSSSSSSSSSS. 

iv. desert trails

My friends are pretty athletic. Then again, probably because they're guys. I thought we were going to just lounge around and do nothing and waste away in the beautiful sunshine. And then they decided to make me bike with them at the Laguna Coast Wildnerness Parks. Luckily for them, I could keep up. But honestly I wanted to pass out on the side of the road and let the vultures eat my decomposing body.

v. OC Fair


 Yes. I went to a cheesy fair. Don't judge me.

vi. beach


The beaches are amazing. The waves are perfect for body boarding or surfing and the water is clear and the people are beautiful and make me want to wear a snuggie on the beach because they're that perfect.



And then to conclude my amazing stay in California, we went out on my friend's speedboat to the middle of the Laguna bay, drank, partook in more illegal festivities, saw dolphins, tanned, and rode the waves.

Photos cannot sum up how much fun that summer was. I didn't even have any crazy experiences (okay, yes I did with one situation involve police, the roof of an elementary school, and illegal substances). Everything was very low-key and enjoyable. And I got tanned like a MOFO. I'm glad I'm making this post in the middle of winter. It gives me hope that there are brighter days ahead of us unless we die because of the end of the world 12.21.12 woooooop.

until next time,


  1. Glad you're back! Cute pics!!


    I'm glad you had a good time here though because it's better over here ;) Come back and we'll grab some in-n-out and be lazy because I wouldn't make you bike! <3
