California Girl

If you've been following this adventure, I'm sure you are curious where exactly it is that I'm living now. Since returning from Dominica I've been in the north-eastern part of Southern California.


SoCal is huge guys and if you aren't from the West Coast you may not realize that when people say they are from "LA" they really mean "Greater Los Angeles," which is made of 3 densely populated counties.

Southern California is geographically larger than England. {Wikipedia said so.}

But in one of those moments when you realize that the world is actually a little smaller than it seems, my dear friend Stacy and I discovered that I'm actually living in her and her husband's first apartment. Like, the actual unit! I knew this was the same complex as I was apartment hunting but with over 200 units what are the chances we'd end up in the same one?
Back in August, this same friend and her husband offered me a room in their home while I job-hunted, found, and saved for said apartment. Their kindness and generosity is a true  blessing, and something that I am incredibly grateful for.
So, for now, California is home once again.

it is crazy how small the world actually is. A girl I went to high school with (I graduated in a very small town with like 170 people) just moved to the exact same city as me completely across the country, and we both didn't even know each other was doing/had done it.

So crazy! I am glad you are settled and loving your new apartment:)

How crazy is that?! In high school, my friend Ryan and I figured out that his family lived in the townhouse my parents originally lived in before having my sister. Small world, teeny tiny island!
