So just recently I decided for sure I'm going to San Diego with only clothes in my bag and on my back...(along with my toothbrush and Just hopping on a plane and going, nothing waiting for me but freedom and whatever I want to do...oh and $200 bucks in my pocket, lol.

I have emptied my apartment...donated 100+ CDs, DVDs and Books to the library...5 Bags of clothes to the clothing drop...and man....


I'm living MY life...the one IIII always wanted, the one IIII always dreamed of?

OMg........I am. *smiles inside*

I grew up in a household where basically your life was already set for were told that you love Jesus, when you got old enough, you got a job to help pay for bills, kicked out at 18 no matter what, then you'd have no choice in sexual orientation and would marry the sex that was "made by god for you", then you'd buy a house, have the babies...have a career, make lots of money, retire and die.

No freedom.
No choice.

Just... as so, the way they're supposed to be, living the dreams of your mother, father...just as Latin American Conservative Christian as you can imagine....

But I lost my mind trying...literally total mental melt down...and I ended up losing or giving up on all the things I tried to want so bad...cuz I never wanted them...


No I didn't fit in...not into MY family not into AMERICA's perfect picture of a family...nowhere...except here *points to heart* and now I see that's all that matters, and it's ok...


To be the creator, and not created...
A leader.


and now MY dreams are coming true...and I don't care HOW crazy they sound!

I love myself....

I had these same plans, but me and the lady friend instead are thinking about Australia for a year after she graduates. We still have plans to get to San is it there? I hope all is going well.

SE is correct about Cali. My husbands parents moved to San Diego and were back within a year and they are quite flush. I live about 45 miles from Hollywood and it is very expensive, we scrape by. There have got to be better alternatives for you just starting out. Whatever you do, don't stop dreaming or believing in yourself. Be safe.

I figure also I want to definitely settle down into one area so I can get my shit together and get to know the area and what not...get comfy cuz going from place to place all over california isn't my plan, when I get off that plane I gotta make my way somewhere and stay there...lay my sleeping bag down and call it home, lol

if you're going to san diego, you should go to ocean beach. tons of travelers, one of the best places to go, especially when you're starting out
