It was my last week in San Diego, and I flew into Paris today. I'm absolutely exhausted from a combination of restless sleep and jet lag, so going to keep this update short and sweet. My overall impressions of San Diego were pretty positive, but like most California coastline cities, I'm just too deterred by the extreme cost of housing and homeless epidemic to consider moving there permanently. So while I do hope to visit the city again, I think I'll keep it as a nice vacation spot, rather than home.

Less than a week and I'll be in Europe! I've gotten most of the boring logistics sorted out, with just a few weeks in Greece left to finalize. Now comes the fun part: planning all the activities! Aside from that, not a lot to report from this week. Still just exploring the city, hanging out with friends, etc.

I can't believe we're already halfway through September! I'll be flying to Europe in just a couple weeks, and only have one full weekend left here in San Diego. Time really does fly by. Not a whole lot more to report from me this week, just been focusing on exercise, eating healthy and getting work done.

Lots of socializing this week - I couple of friends came into San Diego for the weekend, so most my free time was spent going to hang out with them. I've started another "dry month" and switching my focus back to personal growth, work goals, and fitness for the rest of the month. Aside from that, I realized I was so excited about the cabin last week that I forgot to share some other photos. So I've included those here, mostly just pictures from me being out and about through the downtown San Diego area.

The big highlight of this week was heading to Arizona to see some old friends and spend a long weekend at a cabin in the mountains near Flagstaff. It wasn't just any run-of-the-mill cabin, though! My friend Wesley's father built it from the ground up back in the early 2000's. Everything from the foundation to the roof, and even designed it himself in some CAD software. I was really impressed by that, and it was fun getting to pick his brain and learn more about the process, and how some of the electric systems and plumbing worked. We spent the weekend playing board games, hiking, grilling, drinking and jamming. I'll probably have more photos to share next Sunday, but here's some of the early weekend!

Last Sunday I threw all my stuff in the back of a Toyota 4Runner and headed down the California coastline to San Diego! I went down the historic Highway 1 for most of the trip, and stopped in LA for dinner with a friend. All in all, it took me a whopping thirteen hours to get to San Diego! I was stopping a ton and exploring along the way, as it was a really cool and scenic drive. I've been really busy since arriving here, exploring the city and seeing some old friends I know.
