Living in California basically means living life without any rules.
I didn’t want to move anywhere else in the country after I graduated from high school.
I regularly dreamed of living in California & I figured it was going to be the most amazing place in the world. I used all of my money from graduation to put gas in my automobile & make my way across the country. It was the longest trip I ever made & it took approximately 5 days. I slept in my automobile every evening except one. That evening I went to a hotel so I could shower & shave. I slept absolutely well in the comfortable bed that evening… When I arrived in San Francisco, I called a good buddy of mine. I met the woman online & she told me to call if I was ever in San Francisco… She was really shocked that I was in the city, although she gave me her address & I drove directly to the site. She had an absolutely small apartment, however it was right in the midst of Haight-Ashbury. This section of San Francisco is teeming with evening life, especially during gay pride week. The first time I experienced pride week in San Francisco, I was stunned by the number of people! Everyone was laughing & dancing & having a lively time. For the first time in my life, I tried legal cannabis. Recreational cannabis is legal in California & shops are abundant in the Haight-Ashbury district. My buddies & I tried some cannabis edibles from a dispensary two blocks from our apartment. I had a truly fun evening, although I don’t actually think I would love to use cannabis every single day moving forward.
