Things I've Learned...

Here is a list of the things I have learned during my first 2 weeks of living in California. 
  1. Guys here have muscles.
  2. Guys here have tans.
  3. Guys here are hotties.
  4. If you don't own a longboard/skateboard/pennyboard, get outta here.
  5. Venice Beach, although it sounds pretty it actually is not. And it smells of mj, garbage and alcohol.
  6. I need to invest in a pair of rainbows. (What are rainbows, well that's exactly what I thought as well. They are flip flops that mold to your feet....)
  7. To my dismay, I have not spent every waking hour at Disneyland. I AM going at the end of the month.
  8. If the sun is out, so are your legs, arms whatever.
  9. Using the words "Dude', 'man', 'yeahhhhh man'" not as common as you would think.
  10. Beanies. Wear them like they are growing on your head.
  11. There are no bugs here.....except for mr. cricket who greets me by my door every morning and evening.
  12. The pool is a social place to be from the hours of 11am-3pm.....funny that those are the same hours as class........
  13. If you do not own a undented, polished car, please leave the premisses. 
  14. If it rains, put on your rainboots, your heavy down winter coat with the fur hood, jeans, an inflatable boat, and your cross country skies--just incase.
  15. When the weather drops below 60 degrees, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
  16. Your new best friends will not look like they are from Beverly Hills 90210.
  17. Prepared to be looked at funny when you are blinding people by your flashlight skin.
  18. It isn't cheap here.
  19. Drive fast or don't drive at all.
  20. Your evenings and weekends will not be filled with roasting s'mores by the bon fire on the beach with your Laguna Beach friends.
  21. Your weekends will also not be filled with lessons from hottie Dane the surfer/lifeguard who grew up on Maui, HI.
  22. You will not instantly become a tan, blonde, beach volleyball player. And no Katie, Nutella will not help you get to that point.
