welcome to the world
I know what you mean with what happened with your classes... something similar happened to me since the University here is the landmark of disorganization. It's really frustrating... But what always helps me is taking a 60-70mph long drive listening to my Bose stereo in my Benz
About LA... is it really that bad? about people being so fake? I keep hearing that all over the place. even when I lived in SF.. the "northerners" used to criticize the peepz from LA for being so fake.. I never really noticed the difference. I guess I'm just used ot it from Guam where fakeness with most people is a trademark.
