A Very Brady Christmas.

Boy, I really learned a lot this year you guys.

I learned that I could, in fact, move to Los Angeles.
I also learned that I LOVE Los Angeles. This came as a bit of a surprise, cause all anyone ever says is shit like, “I need seasons!”, when they talk about LA. It’s true, there are only 2 seasons, ‘Completely Agreeable Weather’ and ‘Holyshit We Live in Paradise!’ So yeah, I guess if neither of those work for you then enjoy your snow drifts, or countless-consecutive-sunless days, and I’ll keep my year round 70 and cloudless.

I learned that no matter how good someone kisses, if your hair starts to fall out because of a relationship, it’s probably not worth it.

I learned that I love my job. I really just… love it. It’s amazing, due in large part to the amazing people that I frequently get to work with and around. How rad is that?

I got a fucking SPIRIT ANIMAL. Seriously. I have a spirit animal(s).

I learned that I don’t have to sit and count the mistakes that I’ve made, over and over again every night forever.

I learned that if you are planning on surprising someone with a vacation then you better find out in advance what they are planning on surprising you with in case it’s also a vacation and then you have to change ALL your plans at the last minute.

Mostly I learned that I love my new home. I love my friends and family. And I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Merry Holidays y’all.
P.S. Fuck the Tea Party.

    You learned all of that in one year? How is your hair? You are so happy that I can tell that you aren’t listening to NPR every day and preparing to jump off the world. MMM

    How is LA? I am so curious. I kept threatening to leave Portland for LA and then I picked Mexico City instead. But LA seems to be the Mexico City of America, or something. Maybe 8 out of 10 people are horrified by the idea of LA, but every once in awhile some Urban Honking type Portlander moves down there and just loves it. I am so intrigued, and yet worried I’ll live in a car. P.S. Found you because of Laughing Squid posting your videos and when I put it on my Facebook several people were like, I know that guy. And I was like, wait I recognize that guy too. And it all traced back to Holocene around 2005. So tell me about LA.
