1. Thou shalt cook Mexican food.
We have been eating chorizo since we were walking and you’d better know how to provide. Learn to make a halfway decent salsa, don’t mistake those hard shell abominations for tacos, and when it doubt, go breakfast burrito.
2. Thou shalt protect our oceans.
After growing up on the coast, we will always have a special connection to our oceans. In elementary school, we went to the islands for outdoor education. We kayaked through kelp forests, dissected squids for science class, and learned about the peril our beloved oceans are in. We never, ever liter on the beach and attend at least one beach clean up a year. You should follow suit.
