Arcata="Carrie Town" My thirteen year-old sister is here to visit (along with my 11 yr old bro, my mom and my stepdad). I was showing them the Plaza area in Arcata and my sister said, "This town was made for you! They should change the name to "Carrie Town." That was funny but, also a compliment. It made me feel reaffirmed that I definitely made the right choice for my undergraduate degree. I love Arcata's vibe and HSU's, too! I think it definitely suits me. I'm beginning to feel more comfortable here now. I've been here for about 2 1/2 months. One great thing about it for me is that there are not TONS of people like there would be in say Berkeley or if I went to UCLA... or even Stan. State. It's very chill.. very mellow... and quite "lovely."
