Could it be the atmosphere? Unpretentious--REAL. What is it about Riverside?

you know, I completely agree. Not Riverside though, but UCR's campus has a very welcoming and warm feeling to it. So far, my encounters with Riverside have been not so pleasant or kind. I'm hoping things will change now that I've started at the university. I certainly have a little more kick in my step lately. It must be it. :)

The campus is certainly inspiring for writing. We've got plenty of nice big trees to write under, and plenty of people to steal conversations from. I don't feel any particular fondness for the city of Riverside, though. I commute from Redlands (or as we call it, Deadlands) so I'm used to a quieter, smaller atmosphere.
