That’s SoCal: Day 3

When so many things are in walking distance, there are so many possibilities–even at midnight. I was blessed with the opportunity to get a California burrito for the first time on my third day in San Diego.

Colima’s Mexican Food

Colima’s Mexican Food, a University Boulevard gem, has plenty of options. Eric let me try some his California burrito that he got from here on my first day. It has beef, sour cream, cheese, and fries. I know. I couldn’t believe it either! I loved it so much that I decided to get one myself. It was scrumptious!

One burrito and hours of sleep later, we decided to take another trip to Hillcrest. Continue reading

That’s SoCal: Day 2

I woke up to a fairly quiet, beautiful, sunny day, and I couldn’t have been happier. I was excited for whatever San Diego had to offer me. I loved not knowing what we were doing for the day and not having to worry about anything school-related.

My wonderful friends, Jasmine and Eric, made us breakfast. We came up with a plan to explore places that were a good walking distance away. We decided to check out North Park and Hillcrest. These areas are so chill and artsy. There was art everywhere!

We went to North Park first. We stopped at this cute, quiet cafe that I never knew the name of. Sorry. I’ve tried to find out what it was called, but I haven’t had any luck. I got this delicious Iced Raspberry Mocha drink. OMG. I didn’t think it was going to be that good, but it was! I wish I could’ve gone back to get another one at some point. I actually think it was better than most of the frappuccinos I’ve had at Starbucks. (Shhh. Don’t tell them I said that.)

After walking around North Park, we decided to turn around and head to Hillcrest, which is an area known for their LGBT community. This place was very artsy as well. Hillcrest was beautiful just like North Park. I couldn’t help but look around and take in all of it and the chill vibes.

We walked…and walked. Then, I saw it.
