-An extremely diverse state filled with pretty much anything and everything. You can go surfing, hang out in the mall, get robbed, and purchase a prostitute, all within 10-15 minutes.
-A place where the ghettos and the suburbs are a block away from each other.
-The birthplace of every single trend and fad ever made (white t-shirts, chuck taylors, pop-n-locking, gangsta rap, krumping, hyphy, Got Rice?, Hollister, and pornography just to name a few).
-Suprisingly home to many different people including gangbangers, hippies, emo kids, rich white people, and as well as rich white emo kids.
-The only state with the Terminator as its governor. Hell Yes!
-A state which everybody hates but gotsta see at least once.
California frickin rocks!

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 state that gets a lot of anger from everyone.

No, it's not entirely full of liberals. And not all of us are proud about our governor.

The smog is horrible, driving through LA takes two hours, Hollywood is full of homeless people, the beaches are freezing, and no, not everyone is like the OC.

Those of us who live in Southern California in the suburban areas are privledged, leaving a lot of people very ignorant about the rest of the world. A lot of pathetic child actors, such as in La Canada, home to Hannah Montana, those kids from Everyone Loves Raymond, and The Sixth Sense kid.

There is a lot of immigration, making it a very diverse place to live. And there are homosexuals, too. Big suprise. In fact, CA is incredibly diverse, which leads, in some cases, to less intolerance.

We also have TONS of forest fires, due to the lack of rain. In So Cal, there is rarely rain, and never snow. And the sky is brown over LA from smog.

The OC isn't life. We don't all party in Mexico with our friends and boyfriends. I did, but I was building a home for the poor.

California has a couple of things going for it, though.
We have In 'N Out. It's amazing.
We do have beaches, and mountains, deserts and forests. That's kind of cool.
Person 1: I want to go to California and make my way as an actress!
Person 2: I want to be like those hot kids in the OC!
Person 3: I want to swim all day, and meet movie stars!
CA Person: Yah. I can't breathe because of the ashes and smog.

Home . the most diverse and fun place on the earth (compared to other countries/states) . great beaches, attractive people, friendly people, LOADS of stuff to do, great amusement parks, great restaurants, has everything (the country, cities, suburbs, beaches, etc .) it has the best weather ever and not to mention it has a tons of songs named after it .
i.e; california by phantom planet, california by hawk nelson, etc .
mom; "i thought you were going to be back in a few weeks . why are you so early to come home from california ?"

daughter; "i went shopping, met the love of my life, went sunbathing, rode a roller coaster, went camping, and went snowboarding all in the same day !"

mom; "wow !"

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?
