Today we met a girl we hadn’t seen in a while. She made a compliment on my hair and asked what I had changed about it. I told her that I just let it grow and didn’t color it in quite some time and she said that I am pretty well adjusting to the Californian way of life. And I have to tell you I actually feel like I am. I changed quite a bit since we got here. The outer looks might be the obvious and to me the most natural change, because it is probably extremely normal that you adjust to your surrounding first. But I also changed my way of life a lot.
Since we moved here I kinda jumped on that health train the Californians are all crazy about. I try to mostly buy organic food, I try to eat and stay healthy and also super Californian: I am addicted to Coconut water. This weekend Flo and I also took a very Californian lesson. We took our new Longboards (Skateboards) for a spin for the first time. We drove to the beach and longboarded along the promenade between Huntington and Newport Beach. Even if we felt crazily sore the whole weekend, we had a great time and will most likely be down there for our next Longboard spin very soon.
Since we moved here I always felt very homy and comfortable in California. But I didn’t expect to adjust to the Californian lifestyle that fast. Don’t get me wrong: I don’t think I am super Californian after living here for one year. But I am pretty happy about how well I am adjusting to my new surrounding and even more about how happy it makes me!
