San Diego

Having come to the conclusion that San Diego will be my goal for living in the future, I realize that I have given myself time to prepare for such a trip, or journey, depending on the outlook. Moving forward, planning what needs to take place will be easy but somewhat challenging, though starting will be the hardest. A foundation must be laid of course in order to have something to build upon. What will be my cornerstone?

Though California has a lot to offer as a state, San Diego as a city and a county has it’s own stuff to offer within itself. Being a city alone with various cultures, ideas, and many “types” among many other things, that’s what it gives as a city among an ocean of gems.

I am thinking of starting at mission beach, though downtown San Diego would have a better option of resource. A beach doesn’t really seem like a good spot to really start a life, but with the intention of starting things off right, a sight of a beginning where I was first introduced to San Diego years before I went to boot camp for the Marine Corps.

Which brings to the second destination, the airport. The one thing that I could see from the window of the barracks that my platoon shared with many others. Many times, looking out the window, I would think how easy it would be to just go down the stairs, jump the fence, and just sneak on somehow on an aircraft heading anywhere. Getting onto the aircraft wasn’t important, being it through the wheel well or somehow something similar. But, in one way, I was looking at my future because the MOS I had chosen was Aviation Electronics. The style of aircraft wasn’t on any fixed wing but on a helicopter by Sikorsky called an CH-53D, a helicopter that has been decommissioned for a while now.

Planning with a good foundation would be good but without a cornerstone, it would be pointless. So in starting with this, I am sure it will be a good year till I make it to my destination.

The Three Places

The three places that have been on my mind lately have been Miami, Phoenix, and San Diego. Though in my mind I enjoy winter and what comes with it, the physical attraction to a warm place has started to become something unavoidable. At some point in the future, I would like to move to one of the formerly mentioned places.

What the attraction is, that I have been to two ( San Diego and Phoenix) but have always wanted to go to one (Miami) to experience what it had to offer like the other two. In San Diego, the attraction that draws me is Mission Beach, though that may be because it is the few things that stays constant of what I remember about San Diego. As for Phoenix, just the thought of exploring more of what it is apart from the airport and hotels, getting to know what it is on a deeper level. Miami holds the most to what explorative nature there is to see. As never having been there but hearing about it has made it a bit bigger than what it may actually be.

Though I know that all things, places, and people hold a good and bad side, the calling to see what it is to develop my own opinion gets greater and greater. It may be at least a year before I am even able to consider such a move, the challenge has been set in my mind. Calling from the shadows, whispers to me in my dreams. Futures aren’t set in stone and shift like the sand.

The trip to any three would be great to take video of, with the bus rides and the waiting in bus terminals. Greyhound has become my best option at this point. Only question to be asked, what should I do once I get down there? A job at any three would be the first choice. After that, what ever offers itself to be explored.
