A Life-Changing Summer in California

A Summer in California

What started as a marshmallow-filled bonfire night at my friend’s house in New Jersey, turned into the greatest decision I made since going to Sydney, Australia for a few months. Hey. It’s been a while since I’ve written but I’m back. *insert Arnold impersonation [here]* I feel an obligation to share just how amazing of a summer I had and how life post-Sydney ended up being alright after all.…

An Out-of-Character Talk-avism Rant

An Out-of-Character Talk-avism Rant

I want to talk about us. And by us, I mean We. We The People who so conveniently forget that that is who we said we would be. That that is what we pride ourselves on. That that “one nation under god” is only one land separated by everything and every man. By religion and ethnicity. By income and sexuality. By my peers and my teachers. By my authority whose desire to rule takes precedence over my…

I went to Australia for a few months this year and I finally edited/uploaded a video of it. Go check it out! :)

My last #night in #Oahu #Hawaii. Relaxing, beautiful, and so different from the rest of the United States. It is its own culture and place with amazing food, thrilling #adventure, and a lot of love to give. Go. #palmtrees

Was always looking for the next #adventure. #Australia changed me in ways I only dreamt of. This was only the beginning, now the fun of #life begins.

A #summer #sunset at Seven Mile Beach. Here’s where I first touched a surfboard, fell numerous times headfirst into the ocean, and had a wave smack a board right into my jaw leaving it immovable for a few hours. Despite waking up at 6 am to get our “wetties” on, I loved our bug-infested, primitive cabin with no electricity and the rats that infested our grounds after midnight. Great times. Happy days. #australia #studyabroad

Most likely the best picture I’ll get of @johnmayer. Craziest day of my life this one: met john on the street in Sydney, acquired a “selfie,” told myself I couldn’t go to his concert later because I had a presentation for my last class in Sydney (class was 6-8:30, concert was at 7), gave the fastest presentation of my life, ran out the door, caught a cab , $55 later I get to Allphones Arena, buy a $135 ticket, and make it in time to hear John playing Queen of California still. Enjoyed the emotion of his music alone on one of my last nights in #Australia. Worth every penny.

I literally crawled my way to the edge of the #cliff. There were actual fears of death when this picture was taken. But to be able to view the power of the #PacificOcean from that spot…unbeatable. Sitting there alone was a #thrill in itself. #WatsonsBay #Australia

Undoubtedly one of the shortest moments of my life filled with so much overwhelming beauty I’m surprised my fumbling hands got a decent picture. #australia #studyabroad #greatoceanroad #helicopter #aerial
