So, I've written down quite a few things that have happened and that I've learned here, most of which are probably not amusing at all, but I decided to make them a blog post.
* I got to see a man-made colorful mountain. Geez, visiting Salvation Mountain was such a unique experience!
* I set foot on a ghost town. For reals. And a Renaissance fair, too (a very Gilmore Girls experience if you ask me).
Sriracha goes with everything. I use it on polenta, rice noodles, beef ...
The best chili cheese fries from The Hat.
Raspberry M&Ms, coconut M&Ms ...
* I wore sunglasses for the first time. Seriously, I had never needed/worn sunglasses before. One of the first things I noticed when I moved was that the clouds look completely different, like real cotton clouds that pop out from the sky! And the sun is oh-so-shiny; like insanely shiny.
* The 101. Oh, had I heard about it in songs (like Phantom Planet's) and movies! We've experienced it with and without crazy traffic; I prefer the latter, naturally.
* The weather. Dry summers and bearable winters? Yes! They do exist. The weather is something I definitely do not miss from Buenos Aires.
* I now have dinner at 6:30 pm. Geez! I thought I was never going to get used to that. In Argentina, I ate whenever I got from work sometimes at 9pm, sometimes at 11pm, never earlier than 9pm. Now, at around 6 I start getting hungry :/.
* Vintage stores are the best! Love Melrose Avenue.
* Dimitri moved from being anorexic (that's what his medical history states!) and having a chronic kidney disease to being a chubby, healthy kitty :p.
* I got to meet Meiko. She was really cool and down to earth; there's a picture of us together, but unfortunately I don't like the way I look in it :/. Speaking of music, I think I now hate the Red Hot Chilly Peppers, well, hate might be too strong of a word, but they play them so freaking much on the radio! Why?! Whyyy?! I'm so sick of listening to their songs. I bet you're ruining it for a lot of people, radio stations!
I guess I've experienced a lot of neat things! It's funny how sometimes you get caught up in a weird spot where you tend to focus on what you want and don't have instead of realizing that you actually have a lot of good things going on. Now that I have a job, I feel more laid-back and can look back and enjoy things I've done in a different way. Funny, huh?
And before I leave, here's a video from an SNL skit called The Californians; have you even seen it? I really didn't think Californians had a funny accent; if anything, I feel it's one of the mildest American accents there are. But after watching these skits, I guess they do kind of talk like that, haha! I say "they" because I have a weird foreign accent of my own, ha.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! ;D
