Traffic jam, got more cars than a beach got sand

The traffic in California is legendary and today I got a heavy dose of it.  I live about 10 miles from work, but it took me almost an hour to get home.  My work has a "Social" every Friday at 4pm.  Free food that is themed, and free drinks.  By free drinks I mean a cooler full of soda and water and a bunch of different beer on tap.  Unlimited.  Fo realz.  The problem is that I get off at 4:30, and if I do not leave immediately a wave of people going home bombards the route I take and we all sit in gridlock together.  I went to the social to get some eats instead of going home right away.  The food was great, but the traffic was not.

I am visiting "home" this coming week.  I don't know what is classified as home anymore.  CA, UT, or MA?  I went to church this past Sunday here in California and I really like my new ward.  Matt Beynon served 7 month of his mission in this ward and told me it is fantastic.

If you find yourself in the San Diego area please call me :)

Going To California with an aching in my heart

On May 9th I got in my car and drove to San Diego.  I have been here almost a week and I believe that this is pretty close to heaven on earth.  Here I have water and trees like Massachusetts and mountains like Utah.  To make it even sweeter the temperature is perfect and there are palm trees everywhere.  So, if you're wondering what state to find me in, it is California for now.  I have a 1 year contract at Intuit as a Storage Admin and so far I am loving it.  My first week of work was challenging and pleasant.
