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.
