I've come to a great conclusion.
That, at this point in my life, it's going to be very hard to make any new, "normal" friends in LA.
It's sad but true.
Sure, LA isn't exactly a breeding ground for "normal" people.
I mean, people don't move to LA to fall in love and raise a family.
No, they move here to pursue their "dream".
Their dream of being a rock star. Or managing one.
Or writing a screenplay.
Or making a movie.
And with the cost of housing, gas, and the extremely HIGH unemployment rate, I fear anyone with any sanity has since gotten married, moved further away (other states, or at least the outskirts of Los Angeles), ya know.
Anyhow, I'm not sure where I went wrong, if anywhere.
Seems I've been focused on my career and all of a sudden, everyone has moved away - or gotten married and had kids.
Ok, not everyone.
But a LOT of people.
I wish I could settle.
I really do.
Because being single in LA, especially these days, is tough.
All my friends are insanely busy working 24/7.
Or not mentally "all there".
And hey, maybe it's hard to keep your sanity in this city.
I mean, my view is of a concrete wall.
Growing up in Connecticut, at least I had a view of trees and grass.
Perhaps you get to a point where you're too old to live in the city...
Where I'll end up in anyone's guess.
For now, it may just be somewhere with an ocean view.
