26 Things That Happen When You Move To Los Angeles

Seasons? I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

1. Since there are no seasons, you will lose track of time entirely.

2. Your parking spot will be a precious jewel that you dote on like a new baby.

3. In-N-Out will become your fast-food mecca.

4. You'll think about going to the beach way more often than you actually do go.

5. You will actually learn to wait before crossing the street.

6. You judge people based on their favorite yogurt place.

7. You will take your car everywhere, even if it's walking distance. Or right next door.

8. The amount of time your commute takes each day will very much influence how the rest of your day goes.

9. At some point, you will try the street cart fruit, and it will taste much better than you ever expected.

10. You'll start to eat healthier, in general.

11. You'll figure out where in L.A. you can go to see actors, and simultaneously how to avoid them.

12. You'll eventually figure out how to decipher all of the parking signs. Each. And. Every. One.

13. You'll adopt the L.A. form of road rage, which is screaming in your car and never honking.

14. When you see quirky L.A. people, you'll barely blink.

15. Takeout isn't huge here, so you'll become really great at cooking.

16. And dinner parties become a regular thing that you will host and attend.

17. Your friends will suggest a brisk hike as a possible activity, and you will love every minute of it.

18. Rain will be mildly horrifying, if only because you're wholly unprepared for it.

19. But then when the rain leaves, you'll miss it and become nostalgic for more humid times.

20. You'll find a neighborhood to live in, and basically only leave it if you're forced to.

21. You will go to a farmers' market, and you will feel like you're contributing to the local economy after you buy an organic apple.

22. You will try a new diet at least once, and unconsciously talk about it all the time.

23. And you will try a fad workout at least once.

24. You'll eat a lot of Mexican food, and eventually stop going to Mexican restaurants, because the trucks are always better.

25. You will give zero Fs about what New Yorkers think of you, because you'll just be insanely happy to live in L.A.

26. And you will never not love how awesome the weather always is.
