07 April 2013 // San Diego, California

#110 Things Are Good
20 April 2013 // San Diego, California

Finished the identical looking journal that I started at the beginning of the year which lasted me through South Africa. Next chapter!
#114 Coffee Shop on the Corner
24 April 2013 // La Jolla, California
Rebecca’s is now one of my favorite coffee shops in San Diego to set up camp for the day and get some work done. If only I lived a little closer to South Park.

29 April 2013 // La Jolla, California

#120 LiNK @ UCSD
30 April 2013 // La Jolla, California
Went out to the UCSD Rescue Team screening of Danny From North Korea… the Cal West Nomads killed it! And that’s two refugees rescued for UCSD. If you haven’t seen Danny From North Korea yet, it’s a must: dannyfromnorthkorea.com
