I grew up in a really small town in Ohio called Wooster. (About forty minutes south of Cleveland) where people still pick up their milk at the local dairy and the Wal-Mart has a section of its parking lot roped off for Amish buggies. The Amish are literally everywhere back home. It's kind of like stepping back in time.
I've lived out here for about seven months now, so I'm still in the exploring stage of LA. (And probably will be for a loooong time) but honestly, I could not be more excited to be here. I think that you could live in LA for fifty years and still not experience all of the amazing things that there are to do. You could live in Wooster for about fifty minutes and have the whole place pretty much figured out. I think it is actually IMPOSSIBLE to be bored in LA. The millions (and I don't think I'm exaggerating by THAT much. Ok, maybe I am...) of restaurants and bars and sporting events could keep a person entertained for three lifetimes.
Seriously, I think (at least) half of every one of my paychecks is going to go to sports tickets. Going to games is my absolute favorite thing to do in the world. I have a debilitating addiction to Cleveland Cavaliers basketball and the NBA as a whole. I've spent my whole life hating the Lakers and making fun of the Clippers, so calling LA my basketball home, has been more than a little surreal.
Honestly, I never saw myself on Match. This is more than a little strange, but my job has an impressive way of keeping me from going out on weekends, so here I am. If you'd like to grab a beer or a hockey game, or a beer at a hockey game, I'd love to get to know you.
