I visited San Diego California with my best friend of 15 years this past February. We stayed with her father for 10 days and I had the luxury of getting to explore the beautiful city and all of its beaches. It warmed my heart to see the relationship that formed between my friend and her father of whom she wasn't very close with. We learned during our trip that her father isn't in the best health conditions and has had 2 heart attacks in the past year. Me and my friend decided when we came home to Pennsylvania that we would eventually move out to California together in case anything happened to her father. It has now been 3 months since our trip and we are excited to finally be able to set a date for when we will pack our bags and drive across the country. August 16th, my best friend and I will set out on a beautiful adventure to start a new life for each of us. I am able to work until the day I leave however any amount of money with help insure that I won't be struggling in California till I can get a job and support myself. Thank you so much for your donations. I am very thankful for everything and I look forward to this new chapter in my life.
