Sun Shiny Day

Something amazing happened today during my literary editing and publishing class. I have been back in Chico now for a few days, and the sun has been M.I.A. and rain has basically been running the show. My bad-ass professor (who I LOVE) was going into heavy detail about the requirements and expectations for the course around 4 this afternoon when she stopped mid-sentence with her eyes glued to the window. "Everyone, everyone turn around, the sun is shining!" So, just when I thought I would never see the sun again, or have the puddles dry up long enough to ride my bike to class, the sun came out and reminded me everything is going to be all right.

I've been writing on here for almost a year now, and I realize that I allude often to "Chico", "home", "LA", etc, and I am here to set the record straight (you know, just in case anyone is an avid follower and has been confused--it's the sunshine that's inspired this wishful thinking part of me). Anyway, I am from Redondo Beach, which is in LA. This is where my heart truly belongs, but I am currently trying this living experiment called "going away to college" in Chico, CA. I transfered as a junior last fall and have been enjoying every moment away. For those completely unaware, Chico is 2 hours north of Sacramento, a good 9 hours away from LA. It is NOT Chino--there is a rather large difference (so, no, I do NOT go to school in that place that Ryan was from on The O.C.). Better yet, I have a map for you...Where is Chico? So you can get a better feel for where I'm from and where I go to school.

Any way, this post is dedicated to the sun, with the utmost optimism for more days like today, where the sun graces us with its presence and I am able to appreciate it.
Namaste, fellow Bleaders.
