My homelands

June 29, 2016

Ah how I miss the year-round warmth of Southern California. I miss hearing the Disneyland fireworks from my house every night at exactly 9:35 PM, I miss the often, spontaneous trips to Newport, the longboard rides everyday, the most amazing donut place in the whole world (Seaside Donuts on the Newport boardwalk), I miss walking getting into the ocean in December, and I even miss the nasty, fishy drinking water that Southern California is notorious for.

Here’s a little background about the coast-to-coast places I’ve lived. I grew up in the east coast for most of my life. I lived half an hour from Manhattan, I lived 45 minutes from the Jersey Shore, I grew up with 4 glorious, gorgeous seasons, with Fall being the prettiest. I grew up with the most delicious Italian food that no other state/ place will ever compare to (Except Italy probably).

After my freshman year of High School, I was given the news that I would be moving to Northern California. I was sad to leave the beauty, but I was so excited for a change! Especially because I had only ever heard amazing things about California!

Northern California was simply a fairytale. It is easily the most breathtaking place I have ever lived in. There was a spot up my street that I would go to almost everyday and just stare at the view. You could see everything. You could see the city, the hills, the trees… I called it “My Favorite Spot”. You could imagine that I was devastated when I found out I had to move to Southern California for my senior year of high school.

I lived 15 minutes from Disneyland, 20 minutes from Newport Beach, and I lived just minutes away from one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s houses. My disappointment for moving to a third high school shortly came to pass because of the amazing, wonderful new place I lived in. I LIVED MINUTES FROM THE BEACH. If I could count how many times I have gone to the beach in the past few years living in Southern California, I would run out of fingers and toes!

Even though I have lived in many places, I have felt nostalgia about my most recent home lately. I miss my beach! I miss the sun. I miss it so much. I PRAY to visit there soon. Until then, I will wear my Rainbows flip-flops with my hand on my heart and remember what it was like to spend my days at the beach.
