Leg one of this trip is done. My time in Los Angeles was basically completely awesome. I got some fantastic research done that I’m really happy about, and met people doing some really great and interesting housing work. I ate maybe the best egg sandwich I’ve ever had, and went swimming every day. I got to hang out with a childhood friend and hear about what he’s been up to since our Cub Scout days (namely, becoming a Reality TV star and learning that a “vignette” is not something you wear at a music video shoot, but something you participate in). Also, today got to hang out with a new friend and talk shop about English vs. Sociology grad programs over delicious salads that had like five million ingredients. Yum, California.
Next stop: San Francheesie!
