A beautiful and diverse state who's literal meaning refers to a Paradise. It is harshly judged by people who either never lived here & base all their ideas about it from MTV reality shows,

OR

Have only visited the more priviledged areas of Southern California ie Orange County, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, L.A, etc. If you choose to limit your visit to the rich area of ANY region, you're going to get snobs & fakes. COMMON SENSE people.

~Newsflash: L.A and San Francisco do NOT represent the whole state and are not the only worthwhile places here.

~We don't all drive Ferraris and freeload off our rich parents. We have POOR people too. You know Hollister? That is just some poor shitty town nowhere near a beach....all you out of staters wearing that stuff thinking it makes you a surfer and cool? It doesnt. It's just a brand that capitalizes off your ignorance.

California is NOT a gigantic beach. We dont all live near the beach . We don't all surf...hell I can't even swim.

All that said, we ARE a beautiful diverse state. And I'd rather be broke here than wealthy anywhere else.
Out-of-Stater: Californians are so fake and snobby and full of fruits
Californian: Well have you been to any part of California besides L.A or San Francisco?
Out-of-Stater: No
Californian: *punch*

California: A state despite what most people and even native californians think is an actual very diverse place. I myself grew up in Santa Barbara, it is very much a beach town, full of celebrities and rich kids, but also has your typical middle-class families. The weather actually is near perfect except june we get june gloom. Although I lived in Santa Barbara I've traveled up norther california and gone to the forests, I've been snowboarding in Mammoth Mountain, i've visited San Fransico, I've been in inland and gone to bakersfield, and I've visisted small inland California towns where Marilyn Monroe had been named the Artichoke Queen 1947, and I've driven on the highway where James Dean's car accident happened. I've gone down to L.A and honestly does the smog bother you that much? And why let L.A represent all of California. I've been to at least 10 other states, and they honestly don't compare.
Stereotyper:Everyone out in California is so fake.

Me: Since when?

the best state ever. it's not exactly like new york - big city yes, but no new england culture or street vendors. (except those hispanic people selling ice cream or those weird tomato chips.) there are a lot of different ethnic groups of people.

in so cal we have the valley (valley girls) and lotsa gangsta people down south. then there are the party people with their weed & acid, those bad things...but don't get me wrong theres lots of cheesy people ....every state has its losers.

there's the beach, the valley, the ghetto places, beverly hills (those rich people), hollywood, and those really camping/mountain-ish places up north. there's also palm springs, the desert.

WEATHER: yeah the summers are hot. compared to the east coast, our winters are pretty weak.

despite common misconceptions, not everyone in california is blonde or surfer.

plus we have the governator.

A pretty good state that has (mostly) nice weather, lots of things to do, lots of people, and delicious taco shops.

It is often stereo-typed with what is seen on reality shows, like partying, bleached-blonde girls, plastic surgery, etc., but in reality, those are a meager percent of the population.
Non-Californian: Ew, California is really pathetic. There's 36D-Cup women partying all day, celebrities everywhere, and a million rich snobs!

Californian: Have you been watching reality television?

Only the greatest state in the U.S. Hot girls, sunny weather, beaches, surfing, L.A., and people who actually care about their appearance. What more could you possibly want from a state? I'm moving there after I finish college. I've had enough of Illinois' cornfields and wide open spaces. Wish I lived closer to Chicago. California here I come!
