Lately, we’ve been excruciatingly busy, but that hasn’t stopped us from hittin’ the road. Our first trip of the year took us to San Francisco, a 5.5-hour car ride away from LA. We cruised along the Pacific coast, Highway 1, ripping around turns, curves, and cliffs. At one point I was confused if we were actually on the autobahn filming the next mini cooper commercial.
The sole purpose for our trip was to partake in the final Miami Ad School experience: a portfolio review. It was awesome having our “team table” and walking potential employers through the world of AdverBarbie.
Our trip to San Fran was also privileged enough to coincide with the first day of Chinese New Year! Paper firework remnants were strewn about the sidewalks. We engorged in a feast at some random Chinese restaurant with a name I can’t even try pronounce. More or less, it was an excellent place to bring in the New Year (again).
By the time we even had a chance to soak in the San Fran culture, we were on the road, blasting back to LA. It was a quick but neat trip, and we definitely accomplished what we needed to. When we return, I think a trip to Napa Valley will be on the menu. It was so agonizingly close, I could almost smell the vineyards from my hotel balcony. Next time, my friends, next time.
