    I've been living in Northern California

    for nearly half my life and I love it here. But in three months I'll be packing up north to Portland. As much as I love the Bay Area, I think it's time for a new change :)

    I love everything about California… Except

    the traffic. The 405 freeway is ridiculous.

    I do not currently live in California,

    but it is my goal to move their within the next 6 months preferably. I don't know anyone who lives there, but I know it would help so much to make some friends who do! So if you're interested in chatting and maybe offering advice, please feel free to! :)

    When most people think California,

    beaches and big cities probably come to mind. But I love it here because literally in a couple hours I can go from the beach to the countryside. I forgot to share this pic I took over the weekend. This is right outside my parents back porch out in the Cali countryside. Big ol...

    That's where I really live!

    Illinois was where my family first moved to from Russia, but they stayed there when I moved to California a year later. The warm weather feels like heaven as long as you aren't wearing a shirt, that just puts a bugger to it since my body is use to cold!

    Well I used to live in California.

    In fact I grew up in the Bay Area, San Jose to be specific. I do miss the golden mountains, the beaches, and the life of California is in my opinion like no other.
