Hey Team,

Being in California is starting to have a very strange affect on me. And not the type I would expect. You’d think being this close to home without being able to actually go back to my bed and see the whole family (That’s awkward. What’s my whole family doing in my bed?) would make me even more homesick. But any and all feelings of wanting to be at home right now are completely overshadowed by my own irritation with myself.

I seem to be much less friendly in California. I think it’s because I already have so many friends here. Normally in my travels I talk to everyone that makes the mistake of looking in my direction because, in some respects, I have to. If I’m in another state I’m completely alone and (for lack of a better phrase) I’m always recruiting. Life is a team sport, you can’t go at it alone…or rather you can, if you don’t mind having the crap kicked out of you by the other team until the ref starts to feel pity for you and calls the game thanks to an obscure mercy rule (ok, the analogy kind of breaks down in there somewhere).

What I’m failing miserably at saying is: I would be hard pressed to find somewhere in California, no matter how out of the way, where I couldn’t drive to meet a friend in less than an hour. Granted, I don’t have a car right now but I don’t think that’s the point. So now I find myself desperately wanting to flee the one state I love more than any other for the exact opposite reason any sane man would want to.

I’m much too comfortable here. I have to move on. I’m helping renovate a rental home for a friend in San Francisco for the next day or two (What? Being an unemployed adventurer with a website to pay for is expensive.), then it’s off to San Diego this weekend for Comic Con (#26!) and then I’ll leave California behind again for an undisclosed amount of time (5-6ish months?)! I never thought I’d say this, but I can’t wait!

I’m done.

Brett.
