Life has been crazy since my last post. Definitely not bad, but there have definitely been a few unfavorable moments.
The rest of my La Jolla trip was solid. Best friend time was great. We ate and drank our way around town. I got a phantom sickness that I’m thinking was probably a mix of exhaustion and dehydration. Fought through it as best I could. Went to the San Diego Zoo. It was enjoyable, but extremely overrated. I don’t understand how they’re constantly being ranked higher than the Columbus Zoo. And I can promise you that I’m not saying this because I’m biased. I’m very obviously biased, having worked there for 4 years and have good friends that still work there. But my opinion has nothing to do with absolute fact that my hometown Columbus has a much better zoo than San Diego. I will fight anyone who says differently.
Wasted a day and a half recovering from my dehydration after Chan left. Wandered a bit. Helped out at the new La Jolla shop a bit. Relaxed a bit. Took a surf lesson. Just an all around good, chill time. Blessed for the entire opportunity to experience San Diego and working for awesome people.
On a down side, condo contract got cancelled. They put the project on hold. Kerry called me to break to news as I was walking back to the La Jolla apartment to catch a Lyft to the airport. As the marketing email they released a couple days later, “due to unforeseen construction costs, we don’t feel it’s prudent to move forward at this time.” So, that really blows. Hopefully they figure out a different deal within my preferred timeline of buying a place. I want that location so bad, but I don’t want to keep throwing my money away in rent waiting for it for too long. So, we’ll see what happens. I no longer owe my mom money, so that’s cool.
Weather has been less than favorable since I’ve been back, so boo that. Luckily, it looks like we’ve got a few days of really nice temperatures coming up. I really want to go fishing. Maybe have a drink or two on a patio… or two. Has Creekside set up their outside yet? That’s the important question right now.
Overall, life’s good.
