After the dreary fuss that was finals, hectic move outs and sad goodbyes, a well deserved break from reality was exactly what I needed to gather myself before the eminent doom that is Berkeley summer session. So what could be better than a trip down south the west coast to visit the people I miss the most? Well, maybe a trip to Europe or Belize or Bali, BUT I'm broke and only have a week off and I'M BROKE, so a drive down to LA would have to do.
The first stop was Newport Beach. MAN is that place beyond BEAUTIFUL?! Seriously, I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like to actually live there. Albeit it is a quaint little town, nevertheless the beautiful ocean surrounding is definitely something I could get used to. The beach has always been a favorite of mine. I love the way it smells, the way it sounds, and the way it can always calm me like nothing else in the world is able to do; it's pure magic and nothing but.
OHH, AWW, OHH! The houses there were just AMAZING! I am an architecture-junkie (or so I'd like to think) and the houses were so unique and different from anything in the bay. There were contemporary, modern, brick, European, old-school, southern, beachy, and so much more! I was in eye candy overload to tell you the truth, I was OOHING and AWWING at HOUSES. Not boys, or anything of that sort but houses. Typical me.
I love traveling and being a tourist and doing all things embarrassing, isn't it a fun thing to do? It's a speciality of mine, I'm freakin' awesome at being an embarrassment! It's pretty much encoded into my DNA, I can't wait to pass these amazing genes on, let's populate a world full of awkward embarassing kids, YEAH! Anyone down? Let's start a new tribe.
I had the best time driving around from Laguna Beach to Irvine to Corona del Mar, it was all just so beautiful! My eyes were kind of overwhelmed by the simple beauty that these towns provided. While there was not much to do there, the simple fact that the beach is merely 3 steps away changes the whole feel of the town. See, it is all about the little things in life.
