I realize I haven't been very timely in my postings via this blog. I want to apologize to my many (one) fans (fan).....I will do my best to keep this updated!
Let me just say it's no walk in the park living here in cali. Sure, Us Weekly gives a glamorized snapshot into the lives of our favorite stalked celebrities but that is far from my experience as of late. It's not all Sprinkles cupcake eatin'-Coffee Bean drinkin'-Hyde VIPn'-Rodeo Drive credit card maxin' as you'd like to think. I have missed Texas plenty of times....such as when it takes half an hour to get to the grocery store and two hours to get anywhere else.
On any given day, it can take me from 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes to get from school (downtown) to the canyon. Should I take public transit (1 bus : 9 stops, 1 train : 8 stops), consisting of creepers and women of the night (ahem), my trip turns into over 2 hours easy.
So what is the solution? I'm not sure yet. We will find out on friday as I attempt to take public transit to my class.
Now I don't blame the citizens of 'Cal-ee-forn-ee-ah' (AHH-NOLD!) for not utilizing city transport. It's definitely not as popular as say NYC subways or even San Frans buses. And why would they leave their cars? Gas prices?! Absolutely NOT when they have a mobile apartment in their Priuses. I am guilty of the same desire to adore my car as a save haven full of things that remind me of Texas. When you get on a bus or train, you lose that stability. For me, hopefully, it will be a small price to pay on fridays.
In other news, Mom came in town this past weekend and we had a solid time. Ro and I now have Universal Studios season passes (!!!!) so to all you planning on visiting, this must be in your itinerary :) We ate at some pretty good breakfast spots such as the famed Urth Caffe (where many scenes from Entourage are shot) and Jinky's (a lesser known, cheaper joint with excellent pumpkin pancakes...and 20+ kinds of chili....what?), both in Santa Monica.
Don't worry, when you come, we can go there too.
School has kept me busy so far....and it has been successful. It is weird that all my classes relate to things I want to ultimately do when I grow up, and I have enjoyed all of it. It will be a lot of work, but I am ready for it.
Side note: my first celebrity sighting was a British actor named Malcolm McDowell, better known as Teddy K in the movie In Good Company.
