I Love L.A.!

March 10, 2010

I went to school in LA. Hated this city up until the last two weeks of my four years at the university. I mean I missed my hometown of NY so much that for every school break I was on a plane two hours after my last final.

But now I find myself visiting at least twice a year just to escape for a short, inexpensive vacation. Shout out to all the college homies that let me sleep on their couch!
Since I’ve been back, these are the reasons why I Love LA! (cue the Randy Newman song)

  • Taco trucks with loud speakers on them and fresh cilantro, lime, radish and guac for free on a table outside the truck. Did I mention this is dinner on a Monday at 9 p.m.?
  • Snoop Dogg on the radio. “It ain’t no funnnnn if the homies can’t haveeee none. Feels like freshmen year all over again.
  • Seeing my good buddy Mitch Kupchack. We are best buds from the same lil’ town in Brentwood, Long Island. We’ve come along way. Him a lil’ further than me…. For now.
  • Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles. A No.9 and a Sunset. If you don’t know. You will never know.
  • Running into classmates who now work at the Enterprise car rental down the block from campus and give me the homie hookup on a Dodge Charger (I still opted for the Toyota Corolla because I can’t drive big vehicles)
  • The Grove.
  • Wearing sunglasses indoors and not having to look at people or say hello. Damn you ATLiens for always making me say good morning to you!
  • I randomly start saying things in Espanol. Yesterday I called someone a Vato. Had a craving for horchata. And I’m still looking for mi gente.
  • Palm trees
  • Beach
  • Last but not least…. Mecca— a.k.a the University of Southern California bookstore.

I lean like a cholo.

—More to come I’m sure.
