98. downtown thoughts and sights

LA is weird. i have said it before and i'll say it again, and again. one thing that struck my mind today was the question, 'why do LA have a downtown with skyscrapers?' i mean, there are no lack of space really, so why build skyscrapers when you can build a huge one story mall much cheaper? i guess it ...

everytime i do some sport activity i get all "i want to start doing sports much more and focus on it and make it a big part of my life. then i will be satisfied." but then i think, "well, sure, but you only care about yourself here." i guess a combination of sports and doing something good would be ...
