The Independent published a great breakdown of the recent shark sightings in the Santa Barbara area. Pretty awesome if you ask me! Not so awesome if you are in the water and get the poop scared out of you by a shark, but they are magnificent creatures and it is both scary and wonderful to know that they are out there swimming around enjoying the summer just like us!

my roommate and i saw a TON while at IV beach on sunday!
it’s really weird being in new york and talking to my sister
and having to distinguish between santa barbara home and home home (texas)
it’s really making me realize how santa barbara/ucsb is becoming a new kind of home for me and like realizing how much i love it there, even when taken out of that bubble and out of the moment
campus seems so small in the realm of things…whoa.
take me there akfj;ds
sometimes I forget how beautiful my campus is…
Earlier, I walked out of Ortega,
which has the best breakfast, just fyi, and I look out to my right and there is the lagoon and the birds are singing a little song and the morning ocean fog is slowly burning off and oh my fucking god, UCSB is so ridiculously perfect sometimes that it’s almost annoying haha. Seriously though.
