I really do miss the outdoors since moving to Los Angeles. Even though, California apparently has a wide variety of natural highlights, to this day I still really haven’t left the city. I think a lot of people get caught in that trap. Not me. I am going to beat it. I am planning to buy a 3-week Amtrak pass and then spend 3 consecutive weekends traveling the state. The first weekend will probably be in May, as my schedule is pretty much slammed till then. I am heading back to Seattle this weekend. Then in a couple of weeks, I am running a 10K here in Los Angeles.
I also went to the dentist today again. They put in my first permanent crown and prepared the next. Again, I could have bought a car with all the money I have spent on the bottom right corner of my mouth this year.
