The Dichotomy of Northern and Southern California

California is essentially two different states separated by a massive field with farms and cows. No one really knows what happens there.

The Spanish Missions and El Camino Real

In elementary school, we built model missions and dressed up as Native Americans for a history unit. Driving up the coast comes with flashbacks to fourth grade.

FOMO is Real

So many cool things are happening all around, but they always have a tendency to be a little too far away, fall on weekdays, or be hella expensive *cough cough Coachella*.


Most schools are open air plans, so looking at any large single-building school is weird.

Gold Dust or Bust

'So grab your picks and shovels, friends, it's all gonna change real soon.'

It's no longer covered in mainstream media but, trust us, we still need water. Our rivers and lakes and plants are sad.

Sunsets are Spectacular
