Hollywood just isn’t for everyone sometimes…

Hey everyone,

1 more day to go in my internship at Novastar Post right here in Hollywood. Had an interesting time since I’ve been here. Worked part time at a local movie theater in Hollywood called “ArcLight” which is a really expensive place to go see movies. I guess thats why they made us wear fancy uniforms….haha. Eitherway, I’ve come to realize that Hollywood just isn’t the place for me. Not sure what I want to focus on in terms of a career as of yet. One thing I do know, is that its not in post production. As much as I have appreciated my experience here, its taught me one important thing. For one, I miss doing music. Playing and recording it. The second, is that everyday being 85 and sunny is boring as ever. I don’t know how people do it out here.

My plan for now is to head home for a while. I’m leaving here October 1st and am driving across country for 18 days. I figured this would be a great way to kick back, clear my head and enjoy my transition into adulthood and the post college lifestyle.

For now, hope you are all doing well and I look forward to seeing you all when I get back to the east coast!

Best wishes,

  1. We all need some Holywood stories to tell…good ones, bad ones, and totally weirder than weird ones.

  4. Let’s just say that not every stranger that comes up to talk to you is looking for spare change. Doug told the guy, “Sorry. No change.” Wong, assuming the guy HAD actually asked for change, followed suit. Speaking of suits, the guy was wearing one. I think he actually asked for the time or maybe started to ask for directions. Anyway, he started flipping out and kept yelling at us as we crossed the street. Something about being “Snoop Dogg’s cousin” and putting a certain body part in our mouths.

    I’ll take verbal abuse over a bullet to the head any day.
