I'm on the opposite side of the country from people I've known and loved for nearly all of my life. It's a weird adjustment because I am still, fighting how different this is (even it's been long enough to not be doing/feeling this way). While I'll joke about missing food places such as Mexican food (it's not good here...#SendHelp...#SendBurritos), Korean food (#SendBibimbap) and of course, my beloved In-N-Out (#SendDoubleDouble #NoHouseSaucePlease). There's some weird things...like vegetables are more expensive than meat...and there's a lot of up-charging that goes on out here.
On the plus side is, it's a new experience, and I've made some great new friends. I've been working out a lot (five times a week). I am with my husband and we are in a house, versus a sardine-can-sized apartment. We have so much more space, and we have Imogen and Thorin--which in CA, we couldn't really afford a place where we could have a big dog!
I miss driving/walking down the street to things too. It seems like things are so far away from our house. I miss the ocean with waves. OK, I can walk to the beach here, which is pretty awesome...but there's no waves...can't win 'em all, right? ;)
I also miss the oppurtunities that Southern California has to offer. There's more variety.
P-Cola isn't bad though...but you know:
