Long Beach, CA


Long Beach, California. I have not seen so many skate boards since the 1990s!!!! Everyone here has wheels and if they aren't driving a fast fancy car they are probably pushing a cart, stroller or riding a skateboard or a scooter, or wheelchair. Raina is pretty sure she heard of this place in a Sublime song.

Update: Its true, this is the hometown of Sublime.

We are 4 blocks from downtown and 4 blocks from the beach!!! also 4 blocks from all the cheap Hispanic food! Its perfect.



We pulled up to our tiny shotgun house wedged in between apartment buildings and Raina says, “let them be from Dubai,” and savannah says, “let them have a nice car they love to drive around so I don't have to be the designated driver anymore,” and Raina says “I'll just be thankful if we have a place to live!” But we have such good karma and manifestation powers that we all got our wishes! These brothers are from Dubai and drive brand new Camero and Audi convertibles. And they like to drive very fast and listen to loud bass enhanced rap. So we are cruising in style, top down, bass rumbling in Long Beach, hometown to one of the most widely loved and notorious bands of modern American youth. No wonder theres so many skater boarders!

Yeah Cali.




Our roommates are really cool. These 2 bothers from Dubai are always stoned and start drinking at 9 am every day. The house was amazingly clean when we got there but we think they cleaned for us because it quickly became littered with ashes and top ramen noodles. The only thing they know how to cook is microwaved ramen and microwaved hot dog buns, so we have become their personal chefs. Trust us, they need us.



They understand English really well but slur like they are drunk and high and we wonder how much of this is because they really are drunk and high. They are here going to college. The government of Dubai gives study abroad scholarships and everyone gets to go to school for free. Come on America, get with it! For sucking real, we need to raise our living standards and stop beings slaves just to get very little in return. Its true and every first world citizen knows the quality of life in America doesn't stack up. ...but we have great music, freedom, and theres plenty to do and spend your money on..so its worth it, right?

Anyways, these guys are really nice and really little so we are really lucky we found them.
Thank Allah for you Abdo safar and Abdo hadi safar. 

 






 Well, life is too short, so love the one you got
'Cause you might get run over or you might get shot
Never start static I just get it off my chest
Never had to battle with no bulletproof vest
Take a small example, take a tip from me
Take all of your money, give it all to charity

Love is what I got
Within my reach
And the Sublime style's still straight from Long Beach
It all comes back to you, you'll finally get what you deserve
Try and test that you're bound to get served

Love's what I got
Don't start a riot
You'll feel it when the dance gets hot

Lovin', is what I got, I said remember that
Lovin', is what I got, I said remember that
