Life Story

An exciting adventure ensues... This month I'll be moving to down to Los Angeles.
I can't help but to take a nostalgic look back on the [somewhat eclectic] places I've lived.
Within each location I've chosen a specific place that has made a niche in my memory.

1. Laguna Hills, California - The wonder years
I spent my first three years as a SoCal girl. Perhaps I'm going full circle? Not too many memories from this stage of my life, but there is plenty of photographic evidence that I had nonstop fun.

2. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania - Grand Concourse
My east coast days are ubiquitous and mysterious memories in my head. They create more nostalgia than any other point of my life. The Grand Concourse is a train station from the early 20th century, restored into an elegant restaurant. I have the best memories of getting dressed up and going here for Sunday brunch.

3. Bay Area, California - Junipero Serra Statue
I returned to California at age 11, just before the infamous years of teenage angst were to commence.  I chose the Junipero Serra Statue for the countless hours I spent gallivanting the streets of Hillsborough/Burlingame with my friends. I know no matter where I am, and how far I travel, I'll eventually return to the Bay Area.

4. Davis, California - UC Davis Arboretum
Davis gave me the perfect college experience. It's undeniably a cow town, but I still had a great time. The Arboretum calmed many nerves during the most stressful college moments.

5. Padova, Italy - Cafe Pedrocchi
I strolled past this cafe on a daily basis during my seven months abroad, but I never went in. It's a superstition that a university student who dines at the cafe will never graduate. I didn't want to risk it. This building, however, burned a fond memory in my head. Now that I've graduated, I'm dying to go back.

6. Los Angeles, California - New home
So it is... I'll be returning to SoCal [specifically the Hollywood area] to start a new chapter in my life. I'm ecstatic. Final resting place? Definitely not. I plan to expand this list as much as possible.

There it is, my life story.
