I've spent my time relaxing in the warm sun on the beaches of Santa Barbara every summer since I was 8 years old and this one is only a little different. Currently I'm taking time to be away from my favorite beach town to be in the next best place... my apartment in the city by the bay. Here for only three weeks, I've decided it would be beneficial to take a summer course to get back into the thought process of college. Maybe this class will even help reduce the stress of senior year. Being back in San Francisco is more than wonderful and these next few weeks will be jam packed with visitors and studying and celebrating my birthday month rapidly approach.
