Sunset at Stinson Beach

I’m now writing my masters thesis, so I don’t have to get back to Florida right as classes start, I can work from home. It is so much better to be at home. This beach was the start my inspiration to start my work on being a marine biologist. This beach is where I trained for lacrosse, where I learned to love the sea, where I go to escape stress, and it is my place. It is so important to have a “place” where you can escape the stress of the world.

Outfit details:

Madewell jeans, Blundstone boots, Calypso sweater old found one, but here and here are similar.

For me, this is a perfect place to escape from the San Francisco. I’m not a big city person, but it is easier to live in San Francisco than out of the city for parking and access to work. But it is important to find places you can escape. For me, I love to look out on to the ocean or to hike through the woods. Find your happy place.

One day to unplug….

Sorry! It has been a while since I posted. I went home this past weekend. It was so nice to unplug from the world and be in the moment. There is nothing I love more than being with my family and friends. It also helps I don’t have cell signal at my house!

When I was home, I was able to unplug from News, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.. We are so connected to the world through screens. It is so good for us to step back and be present.

When I was living in the Bahamas, I didn’t have a cell service. So I would put my phone away in a drawer for months at a time. I didn’t worry about what was going on anywhere except with the people that surrounded me. I miss that excuse. Not all of us have that ability to completely unplug like that. I think it is important every once in a while to give yourself time to get away from the screens.

Try unplugging for an hour a week. Don’t touch your phone for an hour and go for a walk, talk to a friend, go for a hike or a run. Sometimes I just let my phone die and enjoy observing the world.
