eternal sunshine

Winter blues have gotten me yet again! Last week I posted about my California dreams (sigh), and that only made things worse. Sitting at home, cold and shivery from the walk home, bundled up to my eyeballs in blankets and studying my big, fat psych textbook made me seriously nostalgic for the sunshine. Because for me, with the sun comes the ocean washing away all of my worries, a reminder of a carefree childhood, a freedom from the stress of reality. With the sun, comes peace.

Something can be said for the dreamers that can transport themselves anywhere, without needing to actually relocate. It’s a beautiful mentality, to be able to dream a dream so real that it becomes reality for that little while, and totally removes you from the present. This is what I’m striving for!

A way of mentally eternal sunshine.

Really, a way to find inner peace. As stupid and ‘look-at-me-i-do-yoga‘ as it sounds…imagine being able to never need anything, because you have everything you need with you in that moment. (It’s so tough writing about things like this without sounding like a loony, travelling gypsy freak. I promise I’m not.)


So far, it’s been a struggle distancing myself from the pulls of reality and really give myself time to let my imagination loose. And it’s going to take some time to have the power to let go (a skill totally underrated and underestimated)But just by taking a few breaths of fresh air every now and then, I am learning to find peace in the most chaotic situations. And that’s what it is all about.

There you have it, your first real look into my deep/philosophical side. I can get really into topics of inspiration and self-improvement, as I feel its an important part of growing as a person and coping with struggle. While I love to be silly and happy, a little thing called life sometimes happens. And when life does give you pain and heartbreak, finding eternal sunshine can help turn that into something beautiful!

Enough of my rambling though, until next time…

do you want to go to the seaside?

First of all, if you haven’t heard of The Kooks…what kind of strange rock are you living under?! Their music is my sunshine on a cloudy day!! There is no other way to describe their beach-y, chill, rocker vibe. Prepare to have your world rocked. Literally.

Honestly, I’m sure in my past life I was a sea turtle. Relationship? No thank you, I’m in love with the ocean. I live probably the farthest you could get from an ocean and I think its slowly killing me. Ever been in a long distance relationship? Imagine that feeling but 298347987x worse. I am a beach bum and proud of it.

Ever since I was a fetus, I have gone to California at least once a year. And maybe I never had any control for this deep rooted love for the sand, sea and sun; looking back, it was forced upon me as a baby. I imagine small fetus me being all, “Where are we? Why is everything so warm and watery…OMG there is sand in my diaper!” and the California coastline is all, “You better get used to me, you’ll be coming here every year”. So, every year, without fail; I’d ride the coin operated clown ride on Santa Monica Pier and rock my water wings in the Pacific ocean. And before you know it, the love wasn’t forced anymore. It was REAL.

So, as far as my career and life choices go, I’m hopelessly lost. But one thing I know for sure…whatever it takes, one day you’re all going to be addressing all my mail to Ocean Front Walk, Santa Monica, California.
