Goin to the OC

So stoked to go down to So-Cal on Wednesday and see all the family!!! Apparently it's not very warm there like 60-70 degrees, which is a bummer because I am way tan now and ready for the sun!

I still need to buy a camera.

Walked 4 miles yesterday and it was way fun besides the fact that I got a fat blister on the bottom of my foot and got bitten by tons of mosquitos.

I'm sad to go as well because all the strawberries are getting ripe and I'm going to miss them!

I need to remember to get my brother like 5,367 donuts/pastries at the continental breakfast at the hotel Evan and I are staying tomorrow.

Note to readers: Next time you fly somewhere check to see if any nearby hotels let you leave your car there while you are gone because it might end up being cheaper than paying for parking at the airport. Or have a pool and continental breakfast lol. Oh yeah and a king sized bed!

River Day!

Evan, Riley and I went to the Eel river today to swim and hang out with some friends and it was so nice and beautiful! My tan is definitely coming along now and it feels awesome to be out in the sun after 3 years of being in foggy Arcata. The water is pretty warm and it wasn't too hot. Perfect combo. We even scored some free beer some people left that were hanging out in our group. Tomorrow I'm going to try and be a badass and walk 6 miles to Evan's other property and then go swimming after.

I found a lizard in the house yesterday that the cat brought in (still alive) and had some fun watching the cat chase a chipmunk around the house. Oh the joys of living in the country. Oh yeah and the hummingbird that flew into the house and got stuck in the curtains.

Went and played some soccer in town on Thursday and it was so much fun! I forgot how much I love soccer and that along with watching La Copa Mundial is making me seriously consider taking a soccer class this coming semester. I miss indoor soccer in Redding. Along with Whiskeytown lake. Oh yeah and my awesome friends and family.

First Post

So I have always been really horrible about keeping a diary so we will see how well this works out. The only reason I am doing this is because I like reading Lana's blog because I get to learn about all the little things that I don't hear about anymore because we live in two different states as opposed to seeing each other everyday. People (basically I mean my close high school friends) might want to read this for that same reason if they can get past the horrible writing thanks to never paying attention in English so I could pass notes with Sarah lol.

I have decided that Great White with some lemon or lime is definitely one of my favorite beers and it is made in Eureka.

I recommend the book Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver because it is a great look at how disconnected this country is from it's food and why thinking locally is so important.

Also another great book I just finished Saying Yes, by Jacob Sullum is a scientific look at drug use in this country and how it is made to look much more terrible than it actually is. I could go on about it for a while but essentially legalization is the best way to end the crime associated with the black market and make the drugs available safer and taxed to raise money for the government. If interested ask me to borrow it.

I like living at Evan's house on Spyrock because it is so beautiful. The pictures are from the wintertime obviously.

I need to make some curtains tomorrow for Evan's room and I need to buy a camera because I'm going to need it for school.
