    Hi from Southern Cal

    I'm completely new to this website, but it seems like a cool place to hang out.

    I'm a Geographer with a longstanding interest in environmental issues. I've developed a bit of an obsession with urban planning after living in 5 very different cities (from a planning standpoint) in the last several years. I hope to launch a career in environmental journalism.

    I said "southern cal" because I am in denial that I am living in San Diego and not Pasadena (where we moved from). Anyway, I'm slowly adjusting to this city, though am not quite there yet. It has some nice areas (Little Italy, Hillcrest, La Jolla) but not much authentic culture.

    Hi from central Florida!

    Aren't you lucky that you've moved around and been exposed to a number of different cities!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Welcome from another So. Cal (Valley even!) girl. Ahhhh.. Pasadena, home of KROQ!

    Anyway, welcome to Cyburbia. The Irish One is a cool chap from San Diego... maybe he can point you to the more authentic areas of the place. I remember San Diego being chock full of interesting places.

    Welcome aboard from lower alabama
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."
