This past Friday was the MAD graduation. If you are a new follower to my blog I am apart of an academy called MAD which is short for “Multimedia Arts Design Academy.” With only 4 days left of school MAD decided to do the senior graduation Friday night starting at 5 pm. I attended the ceremony with my friends Julia and Sam and sadly we were about 25 minutes late so we missed about half of the senior videos. From the videos I saw it was a beautiful and perfect way to end their 3 year experience here in MAD and to say thank you to all of their teachers and mentors that have helped them out along the way. After the graduation we had a showcase for the Sophomore, Junior, and Senior class projecting our works and projects in all different rooms around MAD to show our parents what we have been doing this whole entire year. It was so interesting to walk around and explore all the different works from the students and see their photography, adobe, and editing skills projected. As the school year has gone by I have realized that I am very lucky to be apart of a wonderful academy and thankful for all the amazing people I have met along the way. Cheers to two more years in MAD and congratulations to all the Seniors who graduated from MAD on Friday and who will be graduating from Santa Barbara High School this Thursday night. Good luck out their in the real world and thank you for being great mentors to us lower clansmen.
Sup bloggers! After a long weekend I’m back and ready to blog. This past weekend was Memorial weekend as we all know. Thank you to all of you for risking your lives to make this country a better country. We all love and miss you dearly.
This past weekend was beautiful here in Santa Barbara and of course I took advantage of that and went to the beach every single day I could. On Saturday my good friend Mali and I headed down to our little spot. (Hope Ranch Beach) HR is a very exclusive beach and you need a gate key in order to go in. The reason I love this beach so much is that it is so clean and not crowded at all! You have the whole beach and water to yourself which is amazing! No silly tourists! I thought that I would bring out my fish board to have a little fun in the water. Why not right?! It was a great little day of waves and fun to mess around on board and get a great exercise while having fun.
Comment below and tell me what you did this Memorial weekend!
Morning bloggers! Hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend! This past Friday the academy I am apart of had a beach clean up to earn community service hours and to give back to the community and do a good deed. After school we were supposed to all head down the a local beach, Leadbetter. From there we met up with the whole academy and they assigned clean up teams and we went to work. My team was quite the team and we picked up 4 pounds worth of trash. Pretty good since we were only cleaning up for 30 minutes. The trash consisted of many cigarette buds and Styrofoam Now after spending an afternoon giving back to the community I realized that once in a while we should take time away from our busy schedules and help out the community and the Earth we live on 😉 Nothing worse then to live on a dirty planet. I highly recommend for you to get a group of your friends and go down to your city hall and and schedule a community clean up and help out. I promise you it will make a difference. Even if its for only 15 mins.
Good evening bloggers! Tonight was a big night for the Santa Barbara Dons Boys Varsity Volleyball team. They had their semi finals game against Foothill high school. Sadly this game was the last home game for the Dons win or no win so it was very important for the students of SBHS to come out a support. This season has been a great season and the boys seem to never disappoint the high school. Tonight the boys won and are now off the the CIF finals!! Super exciting! This year’s team consists of 9 seniors and each one of them seem to always bring their all to the games. Channing Peake, Ryan Worley, Joe Rafferty, and Tristan Fauntleroy seem to always bring their A game and surely did not disappoint tonight at the game. Tristan is known for his unbelievable smack downs and Joe is known for being speedy and always there in time of need. The images to the left are of the team after their win running through a tunnel formed by this years seniors apart of the “Scream Team.” The other photos is a photo of Carl Mendoza and Hart Pitcher, both seniors, front page of the Sports section for the Santa Barbara News Press. Good job tonight boys and now off to the CIF finals this Saturday in Orange County. Do SBHS proud!
Happy Wednesday everyone! Only 3 days till the weekend and Spring Break for me! The vacation I’ve been waiting for all year. Although I love winter and being on break for 2 weeks, Spring Break is by far my favorite. It feels like summer and reminds me of all the good times I will have in just a short few months. Since Spring Break is around the corner and I’ll be spending my week in Kauai I’ve been working out as much as I can. They don’t call it bathing suit season for nothing 😉
A few days ago my mum and I took our weekly hike at Inspiration Point like we always do. It was a beautiful clear day with bright blue skies and not a single cloud in the sky. I couldn’t help but capture the beauty on my phone. I know I always talk about Inspiration Point on here, but it is by far my favorite hike in Santa Barbara. Its close to my mum’s house and is a great view of Santa Barbara. If you are ever in SB I highly recommend you checking it out. Click here for directions.
As one of the sophomores without their licenses I can’t go off campus and travel to any restaurant every day for lunch as I would like to. Some days I’m stuck with the option of going to Milpas. Which is a near by street to the high school that has numerous food stations to eat at. Sadly I am not a fan of any of them and rather choose to not eat then eat at them. Recently the street got a new fast delicious place to eat, The Shop. Finally a restaurant that I don’t mind to eat at. The Shop is a delicious, healthy fast food place. They range from many different entrees. I highly recommend the smoothies and burgers!! They are delicious. They have a great style to them and have a wonderful outdoor eating area. A beautiful place to eat beautiful food while catching some rays. If you are ever in Santa Barbara I highly recommend eating here. You wont regret it!! To learn more about the business click here.
Rain is away and the suns out, of course I have to take advantage of that! After a week long of clouds and rain the sun is finally out. After school on Friday my friends and I (Elizabeth on the left and Mackenzie on the right) decided to whip out Mackenzie’s convertible and wonder around town until night time. When we use Mackenzie’s convertible we always turn into the craziest girls and just always enjoy ourselves and have the best times. We always blare the cheesiest music and sing to everyone we see. Hopefully we will never see them again because we pretty much scar them.
The images above are pictures of us at our favorite spot called “Look Out Point” in Hope Ranch. I’ve posted quite a few photos from this location. It’s a perfect place to go and park your car and enjoy the beautiful scenery right in front of your eyes. Whenever your in Santa Barbara I highly recommend stopping by this spot and take a few minutes away from society and enjoy Santa Barbara’s beautiful scenery.
It’s that time of the year again, boys volleyball! One of my favorite sports at Santa Barbara High School. Although football games and girls volleyball games are fun to go to, boys volleyball is the one for me. I love how intense they get and how much power they have on the ball. Don’t get me wrong, the girls volleyball team at our high school is amazing!!
Tuesday was the first game of the season for the Dons boys volleyball team. They played against Camarillo High School and destroyed them. As well as freshman and JV. Good job boys! Tonight we play against one of the best boys volleyball team, Mira Costa High School from Manhattan Beach. If you’re in the area come down to SBHS and watch the game! We need all the supporters we can get!
I wish you boys the best of luck tonight, freshman, JV, and Varsity. Show Mira Costa whose house it is!!
Have a fun and safe weekend everyone! Aloha Friday.
Although winter is coming to the end, in Santa Barbara its still a little chilly every now and then. One thing about Santa Barbara that you can never predict is the weather. One day it will be clear, blue skies and 80 degrees, then the next day it will be pouring rain. You never know what you’re dealing with here. I’m a huge fan of comfort and if I’m not comfortable you won’t hear the end of me. Every time I pick out my outfit for school or for the weekend I always make sure I’ll be comfortable before I leave the house. I love lulu lemon leggings and I always wear them when my jeans are dirty or if I want a comfort day. They are the perfect pants to wear with boots or even to work out in!
