Hello people of the internet! It’s Issie. Right now I’m currently in San Diego. I’m spending some time with family. I come here every summer before I go back to school to visit my family. It’s funny, because it kind of mentally prepares me and relaxes me before school starts.
I have been dreaming of coming here this summer and training for cross country, and it’s so nice to go for a run in the morning and to not have to get up at 5:30am to go run to beat the heat where I live.
So today is San Diego day 2.
Day one recap:
I boarded the plane around 4
Honestly, I am so blessed, because I got to sit by myself! Although their was this nice elderly woman named Carmen who seemed like she didn’t fly much. She sat across that tiny ile way that I can barely fit through, yeah, that one on the plane. She too, also sat alone. During the entire flight we would awkwardly make eye contact and make faces to each other, because we couldn’t hear each other from so far away. She was such a nice lady.
These mountains are a good sign the flight is almost over. Because the ocean is right over that horizon.
Dinner and a show. A European cookie, and water. Oh, and if you realize that that movie is Disney’s The Sword and the Stone, you are the MVP’s.
The airport happens to be right near the Harbor, so that’s where I happened to go to first.
The harbor is normally filled with life, with people selling their trinkets and music pouring all over the place, but this was not the case this time. Although I did find some cool things.
One of them being this epic band of teenagers! They played at a cafe, they were so good and professional, and they sang all original songs.
Woke up, and I didn’t have to force myself to get out of bed to run!
It was a peaceful morning drinking my water listening to the Crisp Leaves & Lattes playlist on spotify by Kalyn Nicholson, on of my favorite YouTubers. It’s a playlist with a bunch of indie music, which sometimes I like to listen to just for the peaceful vibes. Then I got ready and got to go run by the bay. (My dream for about a half a year now was to train running on the bay/beach).
It was an overcast morning, but then the sun broke through, so I got ready to go exploring at Balboa Park.
The science museum was packed so then I ended up going exploring/photoshoot.
Then I met and sang along with this man. He’s a cover artist working on his own stuff. He’s very talented with his guitar, and I bought his cover album he recorded himself. Also he has two dogs, so gotta support that. He has an absolutely beautiful voice and amazing talent.
That’s him and his name, go find him!
I must say, Balboa park is flowing with culture, amazing people and music flowing from every corner. As well as beautiful floriculture and more.
Today was quite an adventure. I can’t wait for what else is going to happen.
I’ll talk to you guys on Monday, until then, I’ll catch you on the flip side.
