Oh, It’s Tuesday: I (Surprisingly) Love L.A.

So by the time you read this, I’ll probably be on a plane back to Los Angeles. Yea! I love my family, but I have never been so homesick in my life.

I guess I’m now officially an Angeleno.

ilovelaI’ve actually been somewhat suspecting this for a while now. I kind of hated Los Angeles for the first couple of years that I lived here. Then I met CH, and I began to think, “Well, maybe this place isn’t that bad.”

But now it’s been a while since I’ve daydreamed about living somewhere else. And when CH talks about how nice it would be to retire to Hawaii, I find myself thinking, “I wonder if I’ll like living in Hawaii as much as I love living in Los Angeles?”

Sure there’s traffic, and smog, and all sorts of jackassery, but for whatever reason, I’m just head-over-heels in love with L.A. The other day, I was at Griffith Park Observatory and when I looked out at the smog covered skyline, I didn’t think “that’s terrible” but “that’s my city”

It took a good five years, but I guess it’s grown on me. Or maybe I’m just cold. It’s 30 degrees outside as I write this. Who wouldn’t want to get back to 60 degree weather.

How about you? Do you love the city that you’re currently living in? And if not, where would you most like to live if you didn’t have to worry about money or language barriers. Let us know in the comments.

BTW, tomorrow I’m going to start a “Best Comment of the Yesterday”  feature. So definitely swing back for that.
