1 Month in Downtown

I have now lived in downtown for 1 month and I don’t know what I think yet. My roommate and I have a nice corner loft with a view of the downtown skyscrapers, a rooftop pool, easily accessible public transportation, and a whole lot of bars and restaurants.

It’s everything I hoped it would be, but I still find myself missing the West-Side more with each day. I miss the ocean breeze. I miss having easy access to multiple movie theaters. I miss Target, Forever 21, and Grocery Stores.

It’s also harder, now that I’m back in a cast. I fell down the other day and am in an air cast. the walk from the Alexandria to my apt complex didn’t seem like a big deal, but now with a heavy cast that hurts my leg, it’s a chore just leaving the building to get my car, let alone walking to any restaurant other than D-town burger bar.

I think I just miss the ease of being able to do stuff and I probably just need more time to get used to my new surroundings. Besides, at least in downtown I can get some decent mexican food, something I was never able to get in Santa Monica
