over the years ive written so much about isla vista

paddle out

it’s a magical place with so much more to offer than the sex drugs and rock n roll

not that theres anything wrong with those things.

yesterday the students, who are mourning in a bigger way than i remember they did in 2001, held a paddle out

ucsb paddle out

two days after they filled harder stadium.

ive always been proud to be a Gaucho.

we are uniquely unique from most colleges, and not just because of the geography

but sometimes, like yesterday, it all comes together beautifully.
