I went to a pool party next to the rose bowl last night. I noticed some differences from the parties I am used to. People were very fashionable and there was a lot of color in clothing choice as well as diversity level. Conversations were harder though- there seemed to be an overall level of ego that everyone had. Usually at humboldt i feel like everyones generally super easy to talk to. I’m glad I’m developing in such an open and embracive community- but it also reminded me that there are a lot of social unspoken rules that exist, and even if I dont decide to abide by them its a good idea to be aware. In LA i think everyone (generalization) is hyper aware of these social rules- which is no fun because it leads to taking yourself too seriously, which is the overall vibe i got.
