During this summer I went somewhere I’ve never gone to before: Richmond, Virginia and North Carolina. I visited these two states so that I can spend time with my girlfriend Felisha and meet some of her friends, as well as experience more of the tourist spots on the east coast.

Slowly, I drifted my feet in the mixture of sand and rock. The breeze surrounding me was never-ending, but so soft to the point that it could put me to sleep. The sound was filled with peace, echoed with the music of the wind and the banging of the waves. Once I got closer to the edge, I sat down...Tags:
