It’s really not where you are, but how you are that decides if you can get a peace of mind. Though my move to LA has been pretty stress free, I still have moments of complete weakness when I think to myself about how much I hate this place. But maybe I just haven’t given it a fair chance. Living in a city is certainly not the same as visiting it for short day trips. Third Street Promenade and the Santa Monica pier are the ultimate tourist haven, but going there for a stroll on a beautiful afternoon made me feel just as at peace as my walks in La Jolla.
