Golden State of Mind

Traveling the Pacific Coast Highway
Sydney Fanning

Last week I talked about my travels to Las Vegas, and now this week I am continuing the trend of travel into this week's post as well! Coming back last week it was nice to be home for a while, I'm kinda used to having a routine to keep myself on track. On Sundays I run around exploring different farmers markets, my roommate and I like to hangout at the beach, we never miss a sunset, just little things like that I enjoy doing when I'm home. I actually got to venture down to Tussles to watch the Hurley Pro, it was so exciting!

This is an amazing shot my dad caught of Mick Fanning! (Not related)

After a week back at home we packed up again and flew to Santa Cruz. We only stayed there a night but made a couple great stops while we were there.

We stopped at this quaint little pier in Monterey for some clam chowder.

Old Fisherman's Grotto Seafood.

They claim their clam chowder is number one on the pier, I would have to agree it was so delicious!

Just had to take a picture of these crab cakes.

We then drove down to pebble beach to check out the famous golf course and beautiful view. The day we happened to drive down there it was pretty cloudy and a little chilly, but still a really cool stop! This picture was actually taken from the main entrance/ dinning hall type thing, they had left all the doors open and the outside air itself just flowed through the building it was wonderful.

Here's a picture of my dad and I in front of the greens.

The crazy thing is that if it was sunny out that water would be a beautiful bright blue!

This is more like it!

After we left we headed out to Big Sur (not knowing it would be closed due to potential fires, BUMMER).

I can't get enough of these pictures.

I could have sat on that cliff in a lawn chair for days! Not kidding.

One last pic of my new favorite place on earth.

We stayed one night in Santa Cruz, then headed to San Francisco driving along the coast.

We stopped at this lighthouse we found, it was FREEZING outside.

Closer to San Francisco we found this little pull off to the side of the road to catch a better look at this incredible view.

Next stop San Francisco!

To The Boy Who Changed Me

Just another open letter from a crazy ex-girlfriend.


You’re probably thinking, “oh sh*t, my ex is writing a hate letter and a tell-all about our roller coaster tycoon relationship with terrible fallout.” But if you’re thinking that, oh honey you’re wrong. This isn’t some sappy pity party nonsense and it’s not a trash-my-ex tell all; it’s a journey. And it’s my side of our story to tell…

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
