10 Sep

I came across this list a couple years ago and every once in a while it pops up in an email or on MySpace so I thought I’d post it here for fun 🙂 I love this list because every SINGLE thing on this list, I can relate to. Seriously. Every single one. I had to comment on a few of them hehe.

You know you are from San Diego if…

– Your high school had a surf team.

– You know what MB, OB, and PB stand for
