Hawaii was a breeze and even though I have return home I want to share Five of my favorite things to do in Hawaii that may be helpful in your next visit to Hawaii or your first visit to Hawaii.
1.Beaches and Beaches.Hawaii has many beaches to offer and the trick is finding a calm secluded beach me and my sister were able to find a few,unfortunately waikiki is a very calm beach but is always super crowded the bummer of waikiki is that even though its busy most of the people are just laying out and not even in the water.Another crowded beach is kauliki beach which is beautiful but parking is a tad hectic but worth it. My sister and I went over to Waimanalo beach which was perfect. Easy parking, good location and not at all crowded at times it was quite windy but overall perfect just to enjoy to yourself.
2.The sunsets in Hawaii are simply breathtaking,anywhere you find yourself it will take your breath away.One of my favorite was seeing it from waikiki beach right as the sun was going down.
3.Shrimp,Shrimp Shrimp, yes shrimp can be pricey but so worth it.I recommend the north shore but overall you can go wrong with any shrimp you try in Hawaii.My favorite are Big wave and Giovanni, decide weather you want to have an early lunch or a after lunch meal these are the best times to grab shrimp and avoid the long lines.Big Wave is delicious but Giovanni’s will always be crowded.
4.Hikes, Hawaii has short, long and medium types of hikes the views of these hikes are def worth exploring. The views overall are worth the body getting out there and breaking a good sweat.My favorite ones a pillbox,moana falls, and diamond head.
5.Moana center, yes I know it may sound a tad lame because it is a mall but its huge and there are endless things to find and you can never go wrong plus when traveling I’m sure you’ll find yourself either needing another bathing suit or simply getting some snacks at target.
So we are heading to Honolulu and yes, i’m ditching the cold and raining weather north california has to offer, I booked a trip to Hawaii when I wasn’t feeling my best but here we are ready to go and leave everything behind and enjoy 7 days on an island.My budget is tight but we made it thru. We arrived to Hawaii , and in that moment I really needed some sunlight the weather back home had been quiet shitty. The first two days the sun was in our favor we hiked and had loads of shrimp gosh I love the hawaii shrimp , driving around the island and enjoying the sunshine was fun. My favorite was spending time just looking at the waves I can truly say that’s something I enjoy oh so much.My sister and I had endless desserts during our stay in Hawaii we literally turned ten shades darker but we did a lot of exploring I’d like to say that it was something I needed.I did a lot of reflection and gosh I came back peaceful.The seven days in Hawaii the weather overall was literally all overall the place we stayed on the budget we say we came and explored I saw things I didn’t see before and even though at times I was tired I was home sick I still managed to make the most of my hawaii trip stay tune for my next post on my favorite things and must things see in hawaii while on a budget.
This weekend was chill I spent saturday legit doing errands, from cleaning my room to clearing out anything I needed to do.I decided to do my hair wear relaxing clothes and feel like a person.The weather is starting to get chilly so its always hard to gage what to wear.It will be warm mid-day then in the evening its super chilly.I spent Saturday kinda of thinking of the football plays I need to come up with for the upcoming Powderpuff game ahh.I did an early Saturday workout to get my day kick started the workout was overall okay,workouts haven’t been there best but I’m still pushing.
Sunday I was looking forward to dinner with my cousin and sister.I spent the day getting ready for dinner and our painting pumpkins.I think My cousins pumpkin turned out great.We had dinner I enjoyed the dinner the food was overall okay just okay.Sigh I’ve been so exhausted that’s its crazy that I’m currently laying on my couch trying to finish this blog post and I’m falling asleep watching friends, I’m so exhausted.
I’m grateful for many things in the pass year I’ve changed so much and it’s become a struggle I wanna shed light on the demon of social media gosh I love Instagram but god it’s so toxic.Its my highlighted life.
I’m grateful for having a roof over my head and health and a career that I learn and grow on a daily.

Night world !
So I literally flew into Orange County and flew back to Sacramento all within 24hrs a dream really lol but I learned a lot in just one day.
1.being uncomfortable is okay on this flight everything about the flight made me uncomfortable especially the scheduling and thinking of the logistic that had to take place in 24 hrs
2. Having extra time on your hands is always okay
3. I caught a taxi from the airport to hotel solo
4. I took a Uber alone at night scary not gonna lie but my drivers were smooth sail
5. I sat at a bar alone (fuck and no one talked to me just the bartender to ask if I wanted more soda 😫)
6. I shameless ate my steak at the bar like it was no ones business
7. On my flight to and from I sat in the middle seat on my way to I sat between two big dudes and I survived
8. Sometimes you have to talk to strangers and it’s okay
9. A smile can change your mood guy behind while boarding my flight smiled at me cause the lady way way behind us was saying some outrageous stuff not to wanna laugh so smile it was
10. I’m picky as fuck with food which makes me feel ungrateful and a bratty 28yr old kid
11. You can still get a workout while waiting for lay overs walked 3miles in the airport
12. If family is close take the time to see them 2hrs doesn’t hurt no one…seen my cousin and caught for a catch up
13. A change of scenery can always motivate you
14. Getting drove around is nice but also not I felt boogie and useless
15. I spilled my drink on my flight home and man it made me so sad 😭(story on that later)
