it’s been a while since i’ve done this, but i’m gonna start running twice a day until i get the results that i want.  the last time that i did this was several years ago along college ave in berkeley.  the good part about running during the evening is i don’t feel like eating right after.  that’s what i used to do back in the east coast, hit the gym at 6 then just drink gatorade a couple hours after.  i also like to see the sun set on me when i drive out during these summer nights.  i love longer days.  summer is here again.

three years ago from today i was just settling in the washington dc area.  met great people, went to different places, learned a lot of things, and had tons of fun.  now i’m back in norcal, and everything that just happened back east seemed like yesterday.  i hope i didn’t waste my the time that i couldn’t get back.  i know i won’t this time.

back in ’04 i was looking over at the washington dc area craigslist and couldn’t even figure out the cities around the dc area.  i just looked at it earlier and every name sounded familiar… and yet, i would still get lost in other metropolitan areas.

i know i’ve got to at least experience another place for at least a year.  which should it be: nyc or l.a.?

    until they build that proposed intercountyconnector- 270spur and tysons will be some sh*t.
    oh and how bout getting to 495 from 270… other than the cinderella’s castle-looking mormon temple to entertain you.. that highway is stressful.

    NYC all the way! There are so many people that would the chance to live in the big apple but can’t afford it. If you can do it, New York would be such an awesome experience!

  14. Hmmm… crazy East Coast folk, or L.A. smog? Difficult choice…I like NYC. It is such a busy place. Fun to visit but I could never live in that chaos.

  15. blahhh you know how i feel about l.a…. but there’s nothing like eastcoast living. so nyc it up!!! you’ll only be three hours drive from me so i can bug you 😉

    I vote for San Diego. *haha*

  17. Since I have never been to NYC, I really cannot say…

  18. LOL that is great!!! =D
    i love watching the sunset and the sunrise… i remember i use to drive down to the bay around 2am….. and just wait for the sun to rise at the beach and staying till the sunset… it’s the best feeling i’ve ever had…. i’d love to do it again, but this time with a love one…. someday….
    i never liked L.A., so i think you are better off in NYC. – whatever ur decision maybe… im sure it’ll be suitable for u dear… just remember to take good care dear.
    enjoy while you can… =)

    NYC!!!! And the funny thing is… LA people dont really like new york, and new yorkers dont really like LA… I know I personally wasnt a fan of LA… to much driving… and its too slow paced. You would be amazing how fast the city moves in new york!Come!!! =D I cant think of any other place I would rather be.
