Just returned from a wonderful spring break in northern California, where I spent the first 17 years of my life. We stayed with family friends in Pebble Beach and took long walks/hikes along the picturesque coastline. We conducted whirlwind visits and meetings with friends in the bay area – Palo Alto, Cupertino, San Francisco. The weather was pretty crummy, and by that I mean a completely relative “crummy” – even the showers and high-50s, low-60s temperatures were much nicer than what we were greeted with upon return to Cambridge.
I can talk about how California’s great, but everyone’s heard that story. What was different this time, is that I really didn’t want to leave. I felt totally comfortable in my former-home – no angst to get back here for more creative inspiration, or anything like that. This visit in particular really left the impression on me that I will move back in the near future, hopefully after graduation here. I really do miss the place and can’t wait to visit again this summer!
