Remember the season finale of Mad Men when Don Draper goes out to California and he’s super lost about his purpose in life and where he belongs so he tags along on a retreat? Like a true New Yorker he’s all sarcastic and refuses to buy into the crunchy, granola culture-type thing and then he has a breakdown/breakthrough at the end. I feel a lot like that after going to LA for the first time.
I’ve finally seen the West Coast! Last week, I was in San Diego for the Automattic company meetup. San Diego was pretty much exactly what I expected, and I loved it. Day 1’s mission of touching the Pacific Ocean was accomplished pretty much the second we arrived. FYI: it’s colder than the Jersey Shore.
