“You Can Travel the World… But Nothing Comes Close to the Golden Coast!”

I hate to say it but Katy Perry knew what she was talking about when she said, “You can travel the world, but nothing comes close to the Golden Coast!”  After a summer in San Diego, Southern California definitely has a special place in my heart.  I can easily see my self moving to California at some point after graduation.  San Diego is such an incredible city I’m already starting to miss it (especially the cool Cali weather!).

The craziest thing I experienced during this trip to Cali was Comic-Con.  I had absolutely no idea what to expect at the San Diego Comic-Con 2010 but the closest thing I could compare it to is the Georgia-Florida Football Weekend (“The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail  Party”).  It is 140,000+ costumed fans running around San Diego for 4 days!  Comic-Con is interesting because anyone involved in the comic book, video game, and/or entertainment industry comes out to release their new products to the world.  My favorite part was seeing some of the red carpet celebs.  After grossly miss-using my press pass I was able to see Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Vanessa Hudgens, Wesley Snipes, and Draco Malfoy (aka Tom Shelton) among others.  It was really cool to have Angelina Jolie, Will Ferrel, Michael Cera, Seth Green, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis all come in for the convention.  I definitely wasn’t expecting celebrities to come out for this event but I was pleasantly surprised.  Comic-Con is a BIG deal, apparently.

I got to go to the convention because I was interning for the summer at a SoCal TV station.  I worked with San Diego 6-The CW (XETV) on their morning show, San Diego Living.  This summer definitely opened up my eyes to the California job market so it was great to get some experience out on the West Coast.  Maybe I’ll be living the dream in LA someday…
