10 Reasons Why This San Franciscan Loves Los Angeles
I LOVE my hometown of San Francisco where I was born and raised and lived in for 23 years. But I get asked this question ALL the time… “which do you like better? SF or LA?” That is such a loaded question and I can go on for days and days about the pros and cons of both, but I decided to explain why a native SF girl like myself actually loves LA and would probably never leave.
There’s no such thing as a work week or a weekend. Things are always happening. Monday night karaoke? Tuesday trivia? Let’s do it! Who cares that we have to wake up at 7am tomorrow?
In general, I don’t like the scorching heat. Summers here are awful (ok New Yorkers, we know you have it worse), but how nice is it to be able to sit by the pool basically year round? Fall you say? What’s that? Couldn’t hear you over the sound of my blender making fresh margaritas poolside. Winter is coming? No GoTers, it is not.
Sure traffic makes everyone want to pull their last teeth out, but there are so many places to go! The possibilities are endless. Disneyland is right around the corner. So is Laguna Beach, Malibu, San Diego, and HAAAYYYY let’s not forget Vegas.
This brings me to the obvious… DISNEYLAND. It’s magical and it really is the happiest place on earth. I can get there within an hour. That’s all I need to know to be happy.
Although the quality of some food like pizza and burritos are undoubtedly better in San Francisco (dear lord I miss Seniores Pizza and all the Mission burritos), the amount of food here is unparalleled. There is a food establishment within every inch of everywhere. Perfect for a skinny fatass like me.
GUYS. Most of whom are complete douchebag Oh-I’m-A-Model-And-Actor-Therefore-Can-Get-With-Whoever-I-Want types, but nonetheless. GUYS. What a variety. What a quantity. I live in WeHo so most of them may not want me back, but the eye candy is endless.
The crazy gluten-free, GMO-free, fat-free, taste-free fad is obnoxious, but it does make you more conscious of what you’re eating. No I’m not on a diet, nor will I ever be on one, but at least I try to consume more veggies or something nasty-but-ultimately-healthy on the daily.
Networking is everything. If you need more of an explanation, you just aren’t good at life and will get nowhere…
Palm trees! I’m not really one with nature in general, but it’s just sooooo beautiful when you’re driving through the 90210. Looks like a tropical vacation.
Last but not least, I CAN RUB MY GIANTS AND NINERS AND WARRIORS GEAR IN EVERYONE’S FACES!!!! DODGERS WHO? LAKERS WHAT? FOOTBALL TEAM THAT DOESN’T EXIST, SUCK IT!!!! We have the best sports teams and that is just a simple fact. Move on. 🙂
