I was 18 when I first visited California, and though I don't exactly remember my reaction to the place, I do know it was one of those rare occasions where reality turned out to be even better than the fantasy in my head. I haven't exactly traveled the world, but I've been to quite a… Continue reading What’s life like in Laguna CA?
The other day, my father took me on a bike ride through some trails by our neighborhood. He goes bike riding rather often and I don’t at all so I was definitely expecting a challenge. But, to my surprise, when we started, it was all downhill. As we kept going, the downhill continued, some bits… Continue reading Falling’s Easy
Check out my latest Cali Vlog video!
Several days ago, I made a 31 hour cross country road trip, nonstop (minus a 1 1/2 hour nap), from East TN to the West Coast in California. This was a huge step for me as I haven't lived in even the same city as my family since I moved out when I was 18.… Continue reading My First Day in California! (Video)
I've always chosen to be alone. In a previous post I wrote called, “Don’t you get lonely?”, I touched up on why I'm such a private and keeps-to-himself type of guy. When I was 18, my family moved to California due to my dad's work. I chose to stay by myself in a place I hated at… Continue reading I’m Coming Home//Learning to Swim
I wanna be in the suburban California streets White sands of the beach submerging my feet A splash of salt from the sea caught in an ever so gentle breeze Said I wanna be in Cali where it's always 75 degrees Beneath towering palm trees that always seem to be waving as if to say… Continue reading California Dreamin’
As a few of you know, for the past 10 days I’ve been on a trip in California. It’s definitely been one of the most adventurous trips I’ve been on—driving from Laguna to San Francisco to Eureka, then hiking all over northern Cali and staying in a camper... it has been a very loving, happy,… Continue reading Saying Goodbye and Signing Off
I don't really have much to say, so here's some pictures of my July 4th in northern Cali 🙂 Plus, it's midnight and I have to get up in 5 hours to drive back to Laguna. Then here's some from our hike the other day. Did I post these already? I don't know. Hope you… Continue reading Happy Fourth of July! 🙂
On June 22, 2018, my second mystery novel (yet in my head, my first), The Killed Conscience, was released into the great big world. I imagine this to be a feeling similar to what parents experience when their children move away. Sometimes they go out there and do good, sometimes they hit the ground and stay… Continue reading Living a Dream
After a long night of being elbowed by my little brother on our itty bitty bed, we all got up, got coffee, donuts, then hit the road. For anyone who has an opportunity to stay at a Parc 55 Hilton—take it! It's a great, contemporary, very enjoyable place to stay. And for anyone who has… Continue reading San Francisco to Eureka! 🚙 🎒 ⛰
