Best of 2009 Blog Challenge, Day 11: The Best Place

Admittedly, this is a hard choice for me. There are a select few places where I am a regular (Target, for one...hi Mr. Security Guard who recognises me!), and even fewer where I go when I need to find that Zen state. But I don't necessarily have a spot that's "best" for me.

Having split this year between Orange County and San Diego, there are a few choices in both cities that I loved. In San Diego, I have to be all unoriginal and say the beach. But not any ol' beach...I mean Coronado and Hotel Del Coronado and the entire island itself.

And in Orange County, I have to say that I freakin' love Downtown Disney. But again, not just for any old reason--it's because I love to people watch there and do homework. Yeah, that's right, "homework" and "Disney." Everyone thinks I'm weird for going there to study (finals week!) and get some research done, but it's seriously one of the most relaxing places I can go. I love noise and music, and where else can you get a plethora of it? People are there from literally all around the world, and it's packed every single day. The parking is free for the first 3 hours (plus 2 more if you eat at one of the food places and get it validated), which was a perfect time for me to set a goal to get a book done or research. I can grab a beignet, park it at a table outside the Jazz kitchen, and watch people spill out of House of Blues or run towards Mickey or hike it over to the ESPN zone or rush to make a movie at the theatre. Love it.

About Me

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
