Reporting From The Front Line: Day 3

  • I'm at a cute cafe near my house drinking an iced coffee that just came with cream, there was no asking about it.  It's delicious. *Also, I find it funny that every cafe I've been to alone so far I have overheard cell-phone conversations or meetings about "the script" or "the project".  My, my, these fancy movie people are everywhere here!
  • It's hot.
  • Very hot.
(I don't have much time because my laundry is across the street and will need to be rotated soon.)
  • No Internet at the house yet but I'll have it once I get us a router.
  • Day 3 and I've already been to hear live music at The Hotel Cafe, met 3 blonde actresses, gotten lost, (or as I like to call it; went exploring) and dropped off 4 resumes.
  • My room is hot enough to host a Bikram class in, but now that I've painted it and started to unpack and decorate it's getting cuter and comfier and the roommates are very nice and welcoming.
  • I love the area I live in: Silverlake right near Echo Park.  
  • It's definitely going to be bikable which is awesome and driving hasn't even been half bad!
  • I get to listen to NPR in the car which is fun cause I never could before and it's the only time in the day that I get to be in air-conditioning.
  • So far, so good.  People have been really friendly, helpful and nice!
  • I need, need, NEED a job because I pretty much came here with no money but I'm feeling very optimistic and excited!
  • I think I'm in the right place.
  • More soon...
Over and out.
