I know, I know. I'm behind. I'm dealing with that right now, damnit.
so. i'm currenly couchsurfing in long beach. which is where i think i want to move, actually. long beach. or one of the beach cities. or somewhere cheap near los angeles, really. i dunno.
over the past couple days i've met some ents, hung out with a bunch of really cool people from all over the world, and made some connections i think may pay off in the future.
as to what exactly i've been doing. well, i'll just continue from where we left off. robert took me up to long beach the night after i stayed there, because that's where he worked. good stuff, good stuff. i sat at a mcdonalds for a while trying to find a place to couchsurf, and i finally did, so i headed downtown to meet the guy. there, i hung out with some people i'd just met, talked about a bunch of really interesting stuff. eventually, the guy who was hosting me for the night, ara, came and got me from the coffee shop. we went back to his house, and other than a little misunderstanding, everything worked out fine.
cut to the next day. i'm walking around downtown long beach, trying to get to hermosa beach so i can see tosh's marathon. i come up like, 60 cents short of the bus, so i message another guy who offered to let me couchsurf, peter, and he took me down there. after watching a couple hours of daniel tosh act like a maniac, i hung out with an ent, and we headed down to citywalk, to see HBO, in an attempt to get in for free. an attempt, sadly, that failed miserably. citywalk was still a ton of fun, though. crazy place. i met a really nice comic while waiting outside. his girlfriend couldn't believe that i'd hitchhiked here.
the next day, devon and i met up with his friend kouresh. really nice dude. we went and explored the redondo pier for a bit, hung out on the beach far into the night, and eventually i was deposited back at peter's. i've been looking for jobs and apartments here ever since. (two days).
anyway, i'm updated now, damnit. i'll let you know as things progress!
