LA JOLLA APPRECIATIN':


Life's a beach...





wow this water looks delicious



It's truly a privilege that I can continue to call UCSD my home for the next couple years. Living in La Jolla has treated me so well--the beautiful beach is just a stroll away and the warm, sunny weather is enough to keep me satisfied. Despite years of avoiding the seaweed smell and hidden tar underneath the sand, I've actually found myself becoming a beach person! I mean how can you resist such good-lookin' waves? And don't get me started on those sunsets...

This is just an appreciation post to my darling La Jolla, San Diego. Your annoyingly photogenic scenery never ceases to amaze me :')

Stay classy San Diego,

Rachel

MALIBU // SANTA MONICA


My last free day of Spring Break 
was oh-so-satisfying...















I think she wore that shirt on purpose...jk <3




Vacation is over and my last quarter as a Freshman in college has begun...where has time gone??

For my last day of spring break, I joined my church's college group for a day out in Malibu and Santa Monica. We started off with an adventurous (and kind of dangerous to say the least) hike on the Escondido Falls trail in Malibu. Why was this hike dangerous? Well, if you noticed the 4th photo I posted, you would see a "no trespassing" sign in the midst of various bushes and rocks--we accidentally walked on the wrong path that lead us to a gravel-filled hill so steep that we had to get down on our knees to keep from falling.

Nonetheless, it was quite the experience and the day kept getting better with our trip to the beach. Now, for those who know me, biking at Santa Monica was only the second time I ever rode a bicycle (the first time was in China...story for another day). I think I'm almost a pro now...just kiddin'.

We ended the day with a meal at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.--I found out, after a quick google search that this restaurant was actually inspired by the movie Forrest Gump (a movie I highly recommend)! I had previously thought the movie came after but I guess I was wrong!

I had a wonderful time at home this break and I'm ready to start this new quarter with a bang! What did you do this break, or, if you are on break currently, what do you plan on doing?

Have an awesome day folks,

Rachel
