My Spring Uniform // The Flower Fields

  If you’ve read more than a few posts here, you’d know that I adore San Diego. It’s where I went to college and lived for four years. Even though a day trip is more than doable, the two-hour drive plus LA’s unpredictable traffic even on weekends has kept me from visiting as often as I can. After about four months since my last visit, I finally took a drive a couple Sundays ago to visit my friend. We did…

Three Sundays

December does not bring snow here in California but it doesn’t diminish the holiday spirits. I’ve been a little behind on my blog this month because I’ve been spending extra time with friends whenever I could. I love that even though everyone’s busy, the holiday season brightens everyone’s moods and making plans becomes easier than ever. On each of the three Sundays of this month so far, I spent all day with friends exploring both SD and LA. I took…

Sunday in La Jolla

I. freakin’. love. San Diego. It’s just the perfect place. And I miss the good old days when I lived alone on Torrey Pines Rd, a 15 minute walk away from La Jolla Shores. That’s also when I started this blog so I whipped up lots of content about SD. I photographed and wrote about places from Mission Bay to Windansea to Point Loma… Even though those posts were shorter and less time consuming, they were some real gems to me. Nostalgia aside, now I know…

Good Morning La Jolla

You really don’t know what you’ve got until you’ve lost it. Okay, that’s a little too melodramatic, but I’ve never appreciated the beauty of San Diego as much as I do now that I can’t spend more than a couple days there every month. As a mostly inactive person, I could never fully take advantage of San Diego as an outdoor activity paradise, but for the gorgeous views, I am willing to make some effort. One of the most convenient…

UCSD and Me

I don’t know if the cliche that “college is the best time of your life” is true, since I’ve only been out of college for less than a year. Whenever I get the chance to walk on UCSD campus now, however, I miss my college life immensely. My appreciation for my university, and just education in general, has definitely been increasing continuously through the years. I went to a high school where students were so overachieving that UCSD only seemed…

Point Loma

There’s nothing better than hanging out with your bestie for a couple of days without any interruptions, especially in San Diego. Today we went on an adventure in Point Loma to see the lighthouse. It’s a place that I’ve never been or even passed by because it’s so out of the way, which is great because I felt like we were on vacation for a few hours. We even went on a leisurely 2 mile hike with barely any company.…

Doses of Happiness

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my parents, something that is more and more precious to me now that I’m older. My dad captured some lovely shots: When I was younger, it was easy not to take ownership of my own happiness. The truth is, we don’t get to, or feel like we get to, make a lot of important life decisions when we are young. We have to go to school, and we have to listen to…
