Being born raised in Los Angeles’s suburbs and navigating the Greater Los Angeles Area today, I am well immersed in our severe case of urban sprawl (AKA urban planning’s prime case study of what not to do). Naturally, like many others, I’ve nurtured a strong love-hate relationship with Los Angeles. We can’t get enough of our weather, social media, embracing diversity and its many tasty eats, avocados, day tripping, and more sunshine. All the good stuff makes it easy to ignore a drought, how disconnected we are, normalize earthquakes and wildfires, and spend more time in traffic than most humans ever will.
