I love my life! Taking my time, soaking in the sights and always taking the road less traveled.

The journey begins... Slowly

The tedious 13.5 hour journey over some deep blue sea was more comforting than I originally anticipated. I was bumped up to premium economy and gee wiz, the extra leg space does count for something (thank you Gordon). I was surrounded by gay flight attendants and old male passengers. The already lengthy trip had now doubled itself. Three movies later (Inbetweeners, Warrior and some lame Jason Stathem/Deniro flick) and half a dozen shitty grilled cheese sambos, I arrived in LA.

It was a bit confusing and intimidating at first, all the Mexican, Asian and Black staff at the airport were to blame. But finally I came through. 

I shared a sort of cab with 3 guys from Minnesota and had lunch with them. Then I went to a gym and asked for a trial day because I was new in town. I was granted my opportunity and then proceeded to pump some iron as the whole gym watched. I was repping Vision + they had never seen someone squat before. 

Afterwards I went for a walk in need of some food! I found a little grocery store where everything is labelled with CALORIES!! And the lbs system is kind of confusing, and their money system sucks. In the end the check-out chick handed me my groceries in two brown paper bags, so I pushed my trolly 7 blocks (riding on the back of course).

Then I went to prepare dinner, my shitty peanut butter and shitty jam sandwich (which was shitty delicious!).

All in all; an eventful, long but exciting day. I think I might go for a walk now and ask some guys for some weed, because I was asked today and apparently that's okay?
