10 things I’ve learned since moving to Los Angeles

Ten of the million or so; here goes:
  • It is actually necessary/a requirement to use your blinker when making a left turn, a right turn, a U-turn, etc. Also, parking spaces are like gold.
  • Car crashes are not few and far between. Half the people I work with (including myself—twice) have been in them very recently. When there are more cars on the road, there are more car crashes. Period.
  • People, actually, are not so nice, but it’s OK to not want to fight with them, and to continue to be nice, regardless of the outcome. *Good karma* boys and girls.
  • LA is not New York, nor is it anything like New York, and that’s also OK.
  • A Kronut will never be as good as a classic, old-fashioned doughnut. Luckily doughnuts (and my other obsession, the truffle burger) are found, if not on every street corner, every other street corner in Los Angeles.
  • A midnight run—with a buddy—fixes (almost) everything.
  • A $20 Trader Joe’s run will last you 3-4 days. So cheap and so good. I still don’t get it.
  • Not saying easy is better or more fun, but here, it's easier to be alone.
  • Owning a small dog is a bad idea. My dog, on the other hand, will love it here (and I’ll love it here more when she gets here).
  • When you look for something, you will find it. And when you're not sure if you're going where you're supposed to be going, signs will usually point you in the right direction.
