As a recent college graduate (or not so recent anymore) this past May 2019, I’ve been asked pretty frequently how and what I did in college to prepare for the stage of my life I am in now. The four years fly by extremely fast and next thing you know, you are done with school (maybe even for good) and now you’re stressed about hitting the real world. Reality sucks, but there also so many opportunities to plan ahead and get ahead of the game while you’re still in school and I share all about my personal tips and what I did leading up to the point of graduation.

They say traveling is good for your mental health and for learning new experiences. Well, not only is that true, but sometimes, it can make you feel more gratitude for things that seem so basic in your everyday life. After reflecting on my incredible time in Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Hamburg, I internally realized that I feel more grateful for three specific aspects in my life.

A little less than two weeks ago, I finally decided I was going to commit to going on my first solo trip ever to the city I’ve been dying to visit–Portland, Oregon. The truth about why I booked my plans so late in the game is because I simply kept waiting to feel “ready” to book, while I would talk for months how I was going to do it.

For the past few weeks or so, I for some reason started to feel a lack of passion for Southern California. It was to the point that I called my best friend and told him I was considering moving back to the East Coast and he was in shock. That’s mainly because all I ever wanted was to move and live in California and here I am (ask my best friends from middle school, I wrote it in someone’s yearbook lol), living all fine and dandy, yet, somehow lost the love for it. And I just couldn’t put my finger on why. Continue reading “Finding My Love for California”
Malibu, California — one of the most beautiful and aesthetic looking places in the Golden State (in my opinion). The first time I ever visited California at the age of fifteen, my parents took me to Malibu because that’s all I wanted to see and once I was on the pier, I fell in love.
On this day trip, my friend and I decided to check out Malibu Farm, since it’s a very well-known food spot for local and organic food, and the view is also just amazing. The drive to Malibu from OC wasn’t too bad, since we left at a time traffic was alright, but it was still at least an hour drive. Continue reading “A Day Trip to Malibu”
