Welcome to SoCal. It looks like you're already out seeing the sites. Now - your job is to get the 'lay of the land' and have some fun!
Seriously - have a great life here. You've got a great new job, and you're in a terrific area with lots to do and see. Later (when you're my age) you'll look back on all this freedom and the wonder of being in a brand new state - and you'll smile at it all. Hoping you're building great memories!
