California Bound!

hi Wednesday, are we onto Friday yet?
photo credits: Laura Taylor

I am going to California!!!

Buying my ticket on Friday. My friend lives out there in Santa Cruz so I am going to fly out there Oct 21-25th and hang out. I CANNOT WAIT. I have never been to California and I have been DYING to go there for ever. I am extremelyyyyyy excited, you don't even know! BALLER!!!!!!!


Does anyone have any great places in the San Francisco - Santa Cruz area that I should definiltey go to? Coffee shops? Stores? Waterfalls? Anything awesome.. leave me a note!
I hope I will actually get back on the plane.... lol

-I hope you enjoyed my Jay story... that is like my infamous story.. so horrible yet such a crazy learning experience. I will never do THAT! again.
I am getting all these great emails from everyone about their stories and thanks again for sharing. I am happy to share! I love finding photos to try to capture the feelings.. its really hard!

-I am really excited for tomorrow's interactive thursday... lame, i know.. but I have a GREAT question inspired by my Irish friend Conor so hopefully you will like it!

Nothing really else going on...

-I hung out with a old friend of mine that was sort of my hook up buddy a while back (before T) and we went out to dinner and had a good time. He totally caught me off guard and kissed me and I was shocked! I was like "P you cannot DO that!" First of all you suck at it anyway, and secondly I am not ready for those motions in the road yet! I haven't seen you in how long?! Ugh, annoying. Kinda ruined the rest of the night.. I met some of his other friends who were cool but I was definitely not feeling the scene I was in.
Will not be doing that again! I felt bad, he kept asking me again and again... I figure, I hang out with him, I get it over with, the end. I should have known!

- I am in the process of paying off my credit card in full so that by the time November 1st comes and we are really moving into this apartment, I will only have one credit card left to pay! Woo hooooooo :)

-Did I mention the apartment?! If I didn't then my girl C and I will be moving into a 2 floor townhouse back in New York (not city) November 1st. It is a little more than we were hoping to spend, but honestly it's worth it. There was no security deposit, they allow pets (she has a dog, i have a cat) and let me tell you! There are like NO apartments that allow animals anywhere around here for under $2,000 a month. So this was an awesome deal. Heat and hot water included, parking, laundry. I mean, baller, is that only way I can describe it. The place is brand new. I am really excited.

NOT that I mind living at home, I like it.. its cool to be with my parents and my sister, but its just so far from everything.. I only have like a couple of friends that live in Connecticut with me and everything else is in New York.. my work, my other friends, my gym, my shelter, my school... its like driving back and forth every single day is getting really old real fast. I fill up my gas tank like every other day! And it is not cheap! Granted it is not as expensive as an rent, but still... I have to drive EVERY WHERE. I mean, barely anyone will drive up to see me, so its like I am always going to have to see them.

And then when I want to go out with my friends, I always have to drive home because it is such a pain in the ass to stay at someones house during the week.. yeah maybe I shouldn't go out during the week, but hey, I am trying to be as busy as possible so that I don't think of T or try to call him or text or ANYTHING.. therefore I cannot stay home!

so yeah, that is my life up to now. We will see how this weekend goes... I have GREY'S ANATOMY STARTING TOMORROWWWWW!!! HELLO! Cannot wait! And I have some people coming over on Friday and going to the city on Saturday, shelter on Sunday. Busy Busy...

eek... do I ever sleep?

Ooh! I LOVE San Francisco. Soooo beautiful. I'm actually going to San Diego the day you leave CA and head home. I'll be staying through Halloween weekend. How cool is that?!

Hope you have a BLAST!!

.:*aMbAr*:. said...

WOW!!! I'm so happy for you!!! I live in SoCal but I've been dying.D.Y.I.N.G. to visit SF. Have fun for the both of us!! And also congrats in your apartment, sounds dreamy as in McDreamy dreamy... LOL

Sounds like fun. Enjoy it!

I am excited about many things in this post. hahah

1. So jealous of California. My roommate's twin brother who I also love has been living there for four years and I have still not gone!
2. I am mad jealous of your apartment finding skills. I'm moving in 8 days, 3 bedroom winter rental on the Jersey Shore for $1200, with nothing included and each of us paid $1000 up front (well I didn't... I owe them serious $$$). Luckily cats are allowed! Also, feel you on all the weird moving and living in an awkward place stuff.
3. GREY'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that I'm not living with my friends right now, I am so glad people in the blog world are getting excited for Grey's. hahah

Ah, I love your header and all the things you have planned ... never been to California either, so I will live vicariously through you, hope that's not a problem haha. And lucky you get to live away from home, that moment seems so far away from me! Have an amazing rest of the week :)

OH my gosh, just moved from California to Chicago and my heart already misses it so, so much! Definitely go to Pier 39 - it's one of the more 'touristy' spots but it's honestly just the coolest place... fresh fish stands beside the seal-filled docks, a merry-go-round and cute boutiques right on the water! :) HAVE FUN - so jealous!

Amy said...

Oooooo you're gonna love it here in Cali. Of course I'm in Southern California, and SF is up north. I swear north and south Cali are different worlds. San Fran is so beautiful though. You really are gonna love it :]

The Novelista Barista said...

omg i cannnot waitttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm heading to California, myself, but it is not my first time & I will be in the OC. I have friends that live there & I'm going to Thanksgiving. =) After growing up in Connecticut & seeing nothing but Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific owns a little piece of my heart. I think it is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen.

seriouslyright? said...

congrats on coming on to the WEST SIDE!! Nor Cal is super fun, kinda chilly...well probably not for you (i'm from L.A. so anything below 70 is freezing). You must go to Hate St. it's filled with great shopping and people watching. And while you're there eat at Cha Cha Chas. the BEST food and sangria yuuuummmmm :)

Ali said...

Holy twin, you just pretty much wrote the story of my life here. Well, about 80% of it at least.

The living with the fam, driving out to see friends and not the other way around, sleeping at home after going out...I feel you! I'm in the valley, my friends are in LA. Not easy.

Which reminds me...

Um, you're coming to Cali?!! I live there! But you won't be coming to LA, huh? Sad panda. Let me know if you do! PLEASE. I'd love to see you!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE California & really, really wanna live there. I hope you have a fun time!
