first day/night in cali with no one familiar was a decent success. my mother left for her texas home at 11:30 yesterday morning and there I was, in cali, as a super-loner. the weather was 85 degrees and beautiful, i was all moved in and i had the wifi passwords loaded and saved onto my computer and phone. decent success in my book.
one of my new roommates really took me in, which was comforting. she suggested, well, insisted that we go to the beach. she invited three of her good friends to the beach and we ran around town picking them up (which was honestly my favorite part. driving, windows down, awesome music, bliss) and then we got frozen yogurt at their favorite place, went to a quaint beach for about three hours, got to know each other, became famished, sought out a “smashburger” (mmm, nothing i love more than a greasy hamburger, hopefully wrapped in bacon…….) God above loves me because it was “closed for maintenance,” walked down a little further to some bibbidy-boop sushi joint, ordered some food and adult beverages.
overall, like previously stated, yesterday/night was a decent success and the fact that the natives of southern cali-land think 85 degrees is “crazy hot,” makes me laugh because it’s a dry, comforting heat unlike texas-land heat of that humid, suffocating, satan’s breath of 96 degrees. i can deal with this “crazy heat.”
