Spring Break

It’s that time of year again – spring break.  That time where all of the college kids forget what school and responsibilities are and adventure off somewhere new.  This spring break my place of choice was California.  I love the beach and the vibe in California so I went and visited a friend.

IMG_0011.JPGI drove from Las Vegas to Camarillo, CA on Sunday and it took me the longest time to get there.  It normally is only a 4-5 hour drive… and it took me 8 hours to get there.  8 HOURS!!  It was the worst and I was all alone the whole time.  Never again aha.

When I arrived I more or less just went to sleep because it was 11:30 at night.

Monday, I went to Panera Bread and got a pitaya bowl.  It was a pretty relaxed day considering my friend had school.

Tuesday, we went to Good and Healthy, then drove out to Santa Barbara.  We spent the afternoon walking down State st. and peeking throughout all of the cute shops.  Then we stopped on the beach for a little photo shoot.

Then we drove home. It was such a relaxed, chill day that it really just made me realize how much I can’t wait for summer!

Finally, the last day arrived and it was seriously tragic.  I was so so sad that I wasn’t able to stay a little longer.  But on the bright side… I got my belly button pierced!

The rest of break I just spent my time at home or at work… so what I do typically.

Sunday was Easter and so I had dinner at my grandparents house here in town and then went to my sister’s house for a little while to play board games with her friends.

What did you do over spring break?

DISNEYLAND!!!

Disneyland is probably my favorite place on this planet.  I don’t really know why, but when I think of Disney, I just immediately become overjoyed!  So, I’m thankful for having some friends who feel the same way about it!

My lovely friend Lacy had her 19th birthday on February 28, so we decided to go to Disneyland to celebrate!

So, Monday the 27th at about 11pm we got on the road from Vegas to Anaheim. There wasn’t any traffic so it was a smooth drive straight there!  We stayed in a little motel for the night and got some sleep for our big day!

As we arrived at Disneyland and walked up to the gate, we scanned our tickets overjoyed when we head the WORST sound EVER!!!! The ticket was being declined.  Not just one ticket either, no, 2 tickets.  Nick and Ashley’s tickets were both declined and Lacy and I had already gone through the gate.   Now, if you haven’t been to Disneyland before, the tickets expire one year after purchase, so as long as you don’t scan them you can go anytime.  However, once you go through the gate you can’t get a refund.  Whether you were inside for 5 minutes or 5 hours.  It doesn’t matter.

Now we start to panic, because Disneyland tickets are not cheap.  Apparently, what had happened, Disney refunded the tickets to the cards and the money would return in 3-5 business days.  This is upsetting because now how are we supposed to enjoy our day at Disney if we don’t have everyone there.  So, I ended up paying for Nick’s ticket in full and then Ashley and Nick payed for her ticket.  We made it in the park!

Now, the world was our oyster!  We walked around and rode on so so many rides!  I don’t know about you, but I love to be comfy at Disneyland.  So, before we left, Ashley and I went shopping!

Pretty much, the moral of the story is – don’t take life for granted.  Take an adventure, stay up that extra hour, do what you want to do to be happy because in the end that’s all we have.  Memories and joy.  Live your life.

 

 

Life Update/New Segment

Hi everyone!  How have you been?  I’m pretty good just have started back up with the second semester of my lovely little college life.  But, I wanted to go ahead and share a couple fun things that have/are happening in my life recently!  They are quite exciting and definitely open a new chapter for me in “adulthood”.

First off, I invested in eyelash extensions.  I know what you’re probably thinking and that’s that they are a complete waste of money but I 100% disagree.  I barely have to wear any makeup anymore and it’s the best thing ever!! And, I take the best selfies in the world now.  Just kidding but they are quite photogenic and are a great investment.  See for yourself!

Next thing is that I am moving out of my house!  I’m moving at about the end of the month into a nice house with a handful of other friends and my dog.  And I probably couldn’t take this step without how awesome my parents took the news and support me in my decision to take this next life step, of course with a few concerns behind them which are completely understandable but I definitely am thankful to have their “blessing” in a way!  Also, my friends are also so supportive as well, (shoutout to Regan and Ashley) I definitely couldn’t leave my comfort zone without them right behind me.  I will have my own room and I’m very excited to be “adulting” and really just taking that next step in life to becoming an adult.

Last but not least, I’ve decided to add a new segment or a little extra thing to look forward to in my blog posts and that’s a little bit of poetry.  I was given “A Book I’ll Never Write” by my lovely friend Regan and I haven’t really had time to sit down and read it so instead of trying to sit and read it I’m going to flip to a random page and write the poem down at the bottom of my posts or in their own posts if I like it too much to just add it to some other idea.  I really can’t wait to share all of these amazing poems with you but always keep in mind that they are not original ideas in any way they will all be coming from “A Book I’ll Never Write” so just keep in mind I am not poetically talented in any way.   I will start doing that next post!

Alright so comment below your goals for the upcoming year or maybe some types of posts or topics you would like to read from me very soon 🙂  Remember, you don’t need an account to comment!  I can’t wait to decorate my room and show you all how awesome my new house is!  Also, I would love if you all contacted me so feel free to follow my Twitter or Instagram by clicking on the word and I can’t wait to hear from you !
