Finally after several hectic days I have the time and focus to sit down and knock out a quick update. Last Thursday the Wife and I packed the rest of our possessions and took the 109 mile trip to Long Beach. I’m really going to miss San Diego, by far the best city in all of California. I look forward to returning some day and feel sad that we did not spend more time with all the new friends we made.
We are going to be in Long Beach until after Thanksgiving allowing me to spend time with friends and family and to visit and experience all of my favorite places before we leave the country. So far I have stuffed my face at a few restaurants and even went to see one of my favorite local bands.
Of course the hectic nature of living out of a suitcase and being around my family is tough on reading and writing. It’s hard to relax when you are outside your home and your element but I am trying to adapt.
One of the things I am trying to focus on is working out. I am trying to get as many morning hill runs as possible with a healthy dose of sprinting, pushups, and other bodyweight exercises.
Hands down the coolest thing we have done was going on a nice hike to Switzer Falls north of Los Angeles. It was a fantastic and beautiful hike through a dark canyon that ended at a really cool little waterfall.
Being out in the middle of nowhere surrounded by a beautiful environment does wonders for even the worst anxiety and worries related to my upcoming move.
Now that I am a bit more settled I will try to review several books I just finished and enjoyed and try to focus on some short story editing.
