After spending 16 long years in Seattle where I was raised I decided it was high-time I moved to someplace warmer. I was born in San Francisco, and my family traveled to visit family there often. I had heard stories of San Diego weather being 80 degrees year-round. This sounded like my kind of place, so in October 2002 I packed my small amount of things and hit the road to stay with my Aunt in Riverside County. My first 3 months in Southern California left me thinking there must be other naive Northern-states people planning their big move to Southern California who have no idea what to really expect!! So I thought it was important to be one to step up and give it to you straight because there’s definitely a few things to know before moving to California. [Read more…]
Election day 2016 is approaching quickly here in the United States. We the people will have the chance to exercise our privilege to vote for President of the United States of America.

This is a follow-up post to an ‘epic’ blog post that I contributed to over at the Don’t Quit Your Day Job blog. If you haven’t read it yet, check out “Should You Get a Degree or Drive a Truck?” In this post, I created a hypothetical example where I prove that driving a truck actually beats out financing a degree in the long run!

Not to mention – his face has been plastered on TV the majority of the time. But Ted Cruz has a real legitimate shot of winning the nomination to be the Republican candidate for president of The United States. When (or if) that happens, Donald Trump supporters are going to cry foul and say that the nomination was ‘stolen’ from Trump. But I have a completely legitimate explanation that says otherwise.
