Why I Want To Live In California.

March 20, 2014

I want to live in California not because "it's a super cool place."  I want to live in California because I want to learn how to surf, and continue the hobby in a place that is possible.  I want to live in California because I want to sit outside on my back patio and drink my morning coffee while I watch the sunrise over the ocean.  I want to live in California so I can hike to the Hollywood sign as my daily exercise.  I want to live in California so I can build a mansion on top of a hill and over look the city.  I want to have a large enough yard for the farm I've always wanted.  I want to ride my horses on the beach.  I want to live in California so I can be in the middle of the know-it-all city buzz and trend starters to make working in the magazine business more interesting.  I want to live in California so I can befriend people I have admired for years.  I want to smell salt water every time I step outside and I want to feel the oceans breeze sweep across my face.  I want to live in California because I want to walk down Sunset Blvd and say hello to familiar faces.  I want to live in California so I can shop on Rodeo Dr. I want to hear the wind rip through Palm trees on a breezy day.  I want to wear sunglasses in the middle of the winter.  I want to live in California because I want to be one of those success stories, small town girl makes it.  I want to live in California because I want to show myself there is more than Manassas Park.  I want to be able to show my family and friends a good time when they visit.  I want to live in California and buy my parents retirement condo for them, beachfront property.  I want to live in California and be able to eat at cool and exciting restaurants that 95% of the world hasn't heard of yet.  I want to be able to wear any type of clothing I want without having to check the weather.  I want to do yoga on a paddleboard in Mission Bay.  I want to live in California so I can drive down the coast.  I want to visit all the famous landmarks and beaches- just because I can.  I want to live in California to feel the sunshine on my face anytime of day.  I want to own my own apartment and move into my house.  In all honesty, I want to go on a date with Taylor Lautner.  I want to live in California so I can pursue my dream of working for Teen Vogue and to hopefully one day own my own magazine corporation.  I want to live in California because the feeling that most people my age get when they step foot on a college campus, the feeling of belonging, is what I felt when my seventeen year old self first landed at LAX.  I belong in California.  I didn’t choose California, California chose me.  And that’s why I want to live in California.
