Ok, so I'm not technically camped out under a palm tree. I do, however, reside in the city of Los Angeles and so far it's been pretty great. I've been out here just over a month, and am finally starting to feel settled and at home. We had a lot of craziness right out of the gate: a cross-country move, a friend camping out on our couch for a couple weeks, and even a trip to the Dominican Republic. Now that things have reached a level of relative normalcy, I'm logging some seriously productive writing hours and juggling my desire to explore my new locale with my crippling inability to parallel park. Fun times all around (except for, you know, the parking bit). It feels like we're really at the beginning of something, and I'm excited for some fresh adventures.
