:: One Year in Miami and all I got was this Stupid T-Shirt ::
Today marks the One Year anniversary of my move to South Miami Beach (technically, I arrived September 23rd but I spent most of that day on a plane so it doesn't count). Looking back, I can't believe it's already been one year while at the same I time, I can't believe it's only been one year. What a change, what an adventure. Knowing that this day was coming up, I spent some time ? mainly trying to avoid doing schoolwork ? reflecting on some of the differences in my life.

- Let's start with the easy stuff: In SoCal, I had a car; now I walk a lot more.

- My hair is considerably longer, not surprising since I haven't cut it since I moved.

- My exercise routine has changed, in that I actually exercise now. Kidding. Before I was something of a gym rat but now that I don't have a gym membership, I've resorted to running around a track at the nearby park. Something of a minor feat since while I like working out, I hate running. Even more than I hate light beer.

- I'm more disciplined now. It all started when I tried out the Atkins diet a couple of years ago and I've maintained (most of) that discipline to this point. And yet...

- ...I can be such a lazy bastard. Never more apparent then my sleeping pattern when school is not in session. Sleeping in till 2-3pm isn't uncommon, and even then it's still another couple of hours before I drag my lazy ass out of the bed.

- I use a lot more profanity. I'm not really proud of this nor can I pinpoint when this started back up. It doesn't bother me really that I cuss more; it gives me pause since it probably should.

- I eat healthier. Not Atkins or anything but, healthier. I'm also thinner. Or rather, less fat.

- As if it was possible my humor has gotten even drier.

- I've discovered I really like bars, though I still don't like clubs. Not really surprising considering one my of my favorite places back home is Hennessey's Tavern.

- I used to play tennis, volleyball, football, and softball fairly regularly. Here I play soccer. I hate soccer. Almost as much as I hate running. And NO I will never call it football.

- I've discovered that I can be a pretty good server so if the economy tanks again or this advertising thing doesn't work out, I can always make a decent living working at a nice restaurant. I'm still wondering if that's a good thing.

- Despite my dryness, I'm funnier here. While I still get plenty of blank stares, I tend to garner more laughter than back in LA. I wonder if it's an East Coast thing.

- I flirt a lot more. It's not really a case of women of the East Coast vs. West Coast but rather, my old circle of friends contained way too many uptight women.

- Going the first 9 months here without a TV, I've learned that I have a unique ability to find new ways to goof off. Again, I don't know if this is a good thing.

I could probably go on but this list is long enough as it is and sometimes, it gets a little dull writing about myself.`
