Misfit in L.A. — 21 Comments

  1. I know how you feel…. so often (especially after traveling abroad) I find myself comparing my little Southern town to the cosmopolitan cities in Europe. But I have come to love Savannah for what it is, and try to enjoy every moment I am here because it is so charming in its own right. There will always be a lovelier city, but also an uglier one, out there!

  2. no offense but GOOOOOODDDDDDDDDDD I hated living in LA. Well it was orange county. I would have never thought I was a frustrated farm girl…but I am.

  3. My sister grew up in CT and moved to LA. She could only stand it a few years before the shallowness got to her. But she still does miss the sun and organic food. I can imagine that would be hard to give up!

  4. I know what you mean. I went to acting school in Pasadena and ended up transferring to the New York branch because as much as I loved the weather, the beach, the beauty of So Cal, the palm trees…that quality you mention bugged me. But I’ll tell you – I enjoyed being there. I drove to a different beach each day and the restaurants were fantastic.

  5. It’s so horrible here! And I totally agree with you that Orange County is way worse! For me, I find it’s hard to be the square peg in a round hole because the more I’m surrounded by it, the more inadequate it makes me feel. But then I take a look at people like you, Greg, and my family and remember that I’m not alone, and we’re great just the way we are!

  6. My solution to the superficiality problem: don’t hang out with them. They live *everywhere* anyway. This little suburb I live in in Auckland is full of ’em (mostly Londoners.) And this will probably shock you to pieces: I lived in Riverside for 15 years and I absolutely love it. I love how much Orange County gripes about the Inland Empire, because that *must* demonstrate that it’s a place with merit.
