Things I don’t like about myself since I moved to LA

[*] I screen my phone calls

[*] I lie more

[*] I watch TV instead of reading

[*] My runs are shorter. I never end them with sit ups

[*] I stopped cooking altogether (down from rarely)

It’s not Los Angeles. It’s me. They aren’t changes I am particularly proud of.
