Start to Dreaming
In between all this driving, I've been exploring. Since I'm still looking for a job, I've found that Los Angeles is a really great town to be unemployed in, the distractions unlimited. There was an Air show at the Greek Theatre, a night out in Venice, trips to Culver City, Santa Monica, and Studio City, Downtown, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Eagle Rock, not to mention Hollywood & West Hollywood.
There was also a day hike in Elysian Park, with half a view of the city and the other half offering desert, and the National concert, when an old NY pal hooked us up with backstage passes, a job interview on the Fox lot (!), and on average, I eat Mexican food about once a day, don't think I'll ever get sick of that.
I haven't really been stuck in serious traffic yet, although I do welcome little spurts of it because it gives me time to reflect (i.e: get my act together and figure out where I'm going). And U-turns seem to be totally legal here, which is pretty convenient.
