trying to find my footing in l.a. l.a. land, so far so good.
been incredibly productive this week, although at the same time it seems as if i’ve been spending 3+ hours a day in my car. at least i’ve got a sporty little rental with enough va-va-va-speeding ticket to get me to where i need to be. with a good sound system, praise the lord.
i’m currently deciding between 5 different apartments/roommate situations, and will probably make a decision this afternoon. choosing neighborhoods, price ranges, trying to predict my social life and professional life and traffic patterns is a bit daunting, and then going through the process of meeting and impressing and interviewing people and places is like going on 5 very rushed, very random first dates. i love it.
am starting feel very lethargic from the lack of exercise. in london i’d be walking a lot, dancing a lot and shagging a lot, whereas the past week has had exactly zero of each activity. i’m gonna try to start a morning jog along the beach, to get in better shape and to also try to cancel out my translucence [e.g. get a base tan].
life is good, life is busy. spent a blissful 5 minutes yesterday evening enjoying an iced green tea at the new coffee bean on the sunset strip, watching the sun beginning its smoggy decent, watching the traffic crawl by, sitting in the company of gay boys and powerbook geeks and tattooed freaks. felt very much at home, on all counts.
