January 28. Sunday. Los Angeles
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12:2 NIV
Woke up early to the sunrise and that revealing moment of “omg I am actually here.” I found myself eager to get up and start my day. I read for a bit, wrote, stretched, prayed, and got my green tea on. Before I knew it, 8 o’clock rolled around and Joanne was awake. Time to greet our friends at breakfast, and surprise our last friend! With no plan for the day, we knew one thing – COFFEE. We invited our mates and headed to Hollywood in search of Go Get Em Tiger cafe.

By 5 o’clock we got home right in time for dinner from the Griffith Observatory.
Sky Light Books
El Polo Loco Mexican
Cobb salad $7
(pretty good for fast and a not-so-clean dining room)
In the evening we were off to MOSIAC Church (probaly the most powerful chruch service I have ever attended- after the service they baptized 100+ on this street corner in Hollywood!)
Later, we met our prior classmate Aaron; who was accompanied by his friend Miley, who we grew to love instantly!
I don’t eat dairy… so no pizza for me… but surely the best crust like EVER!
