The Gaslamp Quarter

When hanging out in San Diego, I manged to check out the historic Gaslamp Disctrict. It’s located downtown and wasn’t hard to find since the hostel was actually located in it. The Gaslamp Quarter had a lot of bars scattered around it. It reminded me of 6th Street in Austin only smaller (in terms of […]

San Diego Hostel Review

As promised in my last post, I am going to do a few reviews of the hostels I stayed at while out here in California. They are a great way to stay in expensive cities and locations while on a budget. Plus they are a lot of fun! The first one up is the San […]

Are You A Night Owl?

It’s midnight and your brain is more fired up than ever. Should you go to bed?

I’ve been trying to answer this question for at least 10 years. As far back as I can remember I have stayed up late, often past 1 AM. I even moved to Hawaii, which is 5 or 6 hours behind. What happened? My sleep schedule caught up with me and I still slept during the day. Weird…

I can still remember when I had an early morning shift at a factory. I would often stay up until 1 and then sleep for a few hours before having to go to work all day. It was brutal…

It seems like all my life I have been in a constant struggle against society. Just about everything we do is setup on a typical 8 – 5 schedule. In college my classes often started at 8 and every job I ever had started before 9. Heck, even some stores open early and close before 7 PM. It makes it pretty difficult for night owls like myself.

A Day At The Wildlife World Zoo

This past weekend, my girlfriend and I were on our way hiking when we noticed some dark clouds to the West. Once we saw them, we decided it probably wasn’t a good idea to go up in the mountains. Especially since I still remember the “lightning bolt incident of 2008.” So instead of hiking, we […]
