This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
I’ve spent my first money on clothes here in the US. It only took me about two weeks. It’s dangerous with all the low prices…
My day started with Hanna on Skype. It feels so weird not to be able to talk with her like all the time. There is so much going on right now. But it’s nice that things like Skype and Facebook exist. Otherwise this year would be rather tough I think.
After that I went to Encinitas to pick up Anna Maria. I drove us to Fashion Valley where we walked around for an hour before the other girls arrived. They got lost on the way.
When they showed up we went into two stores, like Abercrombie & Fitch (I don’t know if I hate or love that store..) and Forever 21. At Abercrombie I bought a hoodie because that is what you use as a jacket here and I only have one. At Forever 21 I bought a belt which means that the girl is going to be so happy tomorrow when I give here the one I don’t have to use anymore. I also bought a tank top and t-shirt at Q when it was just Anna Maria and me.
At 5:30, after waiting 50min for a table, we sat down at the Cheesecake Factory. Today I ordered teriyaki chicken, it was really good too. I think I will try a new dish everytime too. My cheesecake today was Adam’s Peanut Butter Cup Fudge Ripple (Creamy Cheesecake Swirled with Caramel, Peanut Butter, Butterfingers and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups). Really good! Next time I think I will try the carrotcake cheesecake.
After that we decided to go to San Diego. So I used my GPS again to find Little Italy. I think it was way too soon for me to drive in San Diego. It was very scary. So we decided to go home to one of the au pairs I met today, Monica. But when we got to her house it was so late so I went home instead. There was a thick fog, so my scary driving experience wasn’t over. And even though it was late (about 10pm) there were lika million cars on the freeway, so that was scary too… Everything went fine though and I am safe and sound at home again.
This whole day was really fun. I got to meet three au pairs who live close to San Diego (which is not that far from Carlsbad); Alejandra, Monica and Dina. Very nice girls!
Now it’s time to go to sleep! Good night (or good morning Sweden)!
