Hood

Oh hay there. Yah I haven’t blogged since my last post where I said I would blog more often. I apologize. Let me tell you about my neighborhood to make it up.

I live in a very awesome area in San Diego called Normal Heights. It’s very close to our cooler cousin that made it on the Forbes list for America’s Hippest Cities, North Park. Sometimes I just tell people I live in North Park since it’s more easily recognizable but most of the time I say I live in North park cuz I really really want to be hip. Just kidding. Not.

Several weeks ago we had our annual Adams Avenue Street Fair. It’s exactly like what it sounds, a fair in the streets two blocks from my house. I have attended the fair before but there’s something to say about being within walking distance to the festivities that just makes you want to skip and dance and frolic.

I never really thought I would be living in San Diego this long. This fall marks my 5 year anniversary with the city. I always thought I’d move somewhere else after undergrad but I stayed. I don’t know why I never gave this city the credit it deserved but lately I’m starting to feel right living here. Comfortable and situated. I won’t stay forever but I finally call it home. At least for now, it’s my home and my city. As much mine as it could possibly ever be.
