So Cal is not for everybody. You have take it for what it is.
I had a dream once that I had moved to LA. There was nothing to do but go to the movies. I found a river and I was sad because it was the only river we had. Then, as I watched, it dried up and there was a street underneath it and soon cars were driving up and down the street and I was even sadder. Weird dream but reflects my thoughts on LA.
