There was an earthquake for three seconds. Definitely not my first or longest earthquake experience but potentially my first Californian earthquake experience. Potentially because I couldn’t remember how many times I had been here, but people ask, “Oh, is it your first time to California?” To which I say “no”, but maybe it would be more helpful to say it is my first time living in California.
Anaheim as a toddler, San Diego as an elementary student, San Francisco to Anaheim as a high school student, Disneyland post-college, Orange County. Yep, been to California five times before moving here.
I was really excited about the earthquake!
