To Live and Die in L.A.......it's the place to be!
Now what can I say about L.A.? It's pretty much how it's depicted on TV (or at least I think so when it comes to the extremes). Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Hills, PV.....nice big homes with nice big beaches and lot's of Starbucks all around. Then they have the Compton area and the likes which is always seen as ghetto in the movies. It's actually not that bad, just compared to Beverly Hills of course it looks run down. Now where would you find me? In the bougie area high up in some hills or near the railroad tracks? I'm actually in between. I'm 10-15 minutes from those nice areas, from the hills, from the beaches, from the "ghetto" area which ALWAYS has the best hole in the wall places to eat, from the suburbs. My area is really a mix so of course I'm loving it, but like my title says.....to live and die in L.A. I know I'm probably going to end up here when I settle down since all my family is here so I want to live it up and see as much of the world as I can WHILE I still can. I take every opportunity to travel and intend on doing so for a long time to come.
