It always takes some time for me to familiarize myself with new places and things. When we first moved to Los Angeles I wasn’t actually that excited about it, despite what I may have said. I missed Nebraska pretty bad and felt like I hadn’t spent enough time there this summer before leaving again. Although Nebraska has neither the beauty of Cambridge nor the flash of LA, it’s special to me.
I also wasn’t super excited because I’d moved so much the last year and a half. I moved from Lincoln to Papillion, picked up a new and permanent roommate, moved across the Atlantic to Cambridge, came back to Papillion because I was detained in France, got a visa and flew back to Cambridge, moved back to Nebraska, and then moved to LA. That’s quite a bit of moving around, so excuse me if I wasn’t really eager to go exploring my newest city after I got here. I’d been exploring new places for months.
I’m finally starting to feel like I know what I’m doing here, though. I want to do exciting things again, and I am going to do exciting things. To kick things off, this Saturday I’m seeing Nick Offerman (known to many as Ron Swanson) do some standup. Oh, yeah.
