I spent yesterday morning flying here. My friends Wahima, Elizabeth and Justin picked me up at KLAX and then we went to Santa Monica and then Hollywood to spend the day. I got to the suburbs around 9:00p. I am staying with the parents and I already feel a little stranded.
This is just like Tallahassee in so many ways.
I forgot, too, that when my brother and sister get together they really enjoy making fun of me. It's nothing—just silliness—but we're so different, by which I mean that I am so different. I forget how different when I am away from them. We seem similar when I don't spend a lot of time with them.
Anyway, I am here now. And I am seeing more (and different) friends tonight and again tomorrow. So I am excited. And then after today I will also have a car, so I won't feel so suburban.
