I have been in Los Angeles for one week.
Sharing a cozy studio with another girl. It’s okay here, there’s no air conditioning so the fan is always on. It’s only really hot when you come back from outside.
It’s weird that you can’t drink the water out of the faucet here.
I still don’t have a mattress, so sleeping on the floor is super fun. I’m not letting myself buy one until I have a job.
I had an interview yesterday for an administrative assistant position that’s an easy red line to get to. Really hope I get the job, I’m super qualified but they had 20 other people to interview so I can’t get my hopes up. Hoping to get a call tomorrow about it.
Otherwise I have my interview/set up with the staffing agency on Thursday but that is an hour away so that sucks and I’d rather not go and get this other job.
I need a car here and this past weekend I got to use my roommates mom’s car to drive around and yes, I tackled the 7 lane high way as my first high way experience. If I can drive in LA, I can drive anywhere. I asked my dad if my car at home would make it to LA if I flew home and drove back but it won’t so he said I should check into leasing a car. But I need a job to be able to afford that first.
I don’t know how to make friends here. I feel like I have to go out to places and I want to check out the Satellite and a couple other bars but that means going by myself and i’m not comfortable with that yet.
I don’t know. Living in Hollywood is not glamorous but it’s okay. I have a lot more opportunities to cover shows for my internship so when that starts picking up it’ll be a lot more fun. Also when I have a job that’ll be nice.
I’ve been having weird dreams/nightmares because of stress. And maybe sleeping on the floor. I miss my mom.
I started writing down my adventure in a google doc but the wifi here is horrible and I can only get a little done at a time. I guess that’s why all these writers go to coffee shops.
Also, I can’t wait until I get a table so that I can start making my eggs again. These hipsters around here will eat that shit up and give me money.
