The first semester at my new university was the most stressful I had ever been. With the new environment, moving out of my parent's house and trying to keep up with the academics I felt my sanity slowly slipping away. It's strange but during this period I found myself having this constant internal pull towards nature. Little things such as seeing the sunlight shine through the trees as I walked towards campus, or admiring blooming flowers from the Library's window played a part in my endurance and inspired me to act on these frustrations. And so, that is how this trip to Northern California began.
