    I Thought It Was a Dream For Retirement, But I'm In My Twenties.

    I live oceanfront on Maui with a spectacular view of the harbor and the entire northshore. It's odd to think how I got here, four years ago with a bookbag on my back and a hundred bucks in my pocket. When I was a child, I went to the beach in Virginia and North Carolina with my...

    Well... no matter which way you go there it is hehe. I'm not too far from the ocean but the only chances that I get to go there are at night time. I love the ocean and I love the beach... a necessity wherever you live :) or atleast water of some sort.

    Nobody likes going to the beach with me because I'm way out in the waves the entire time. No sun tanning. No sand castles. Just cold, deep, wonderful ocean.
