I am slightly obsessed with book.
Back around I think March or April-ish, I was being considered for a job in [*dreamy eyes*] New York City.
It was a job for a show that would’ve been amazing to work on. (Heck, I’ll just tell you. It was for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. And I obviously did not get it, as I am writing you from my living room in Los Angeles (though I still enjoy the show, of course).)
In the weekend between my interview and the day I was to find out, I thought a lot about my (at the time) 3 1/2 years in Los Angeles – what I’d done, what I hadn’t done. I realized I’d done a surprising amount of things (to me at least).
I also worked on some TV shows, including my first producing job – on Living with the Jacksons where we hung out in the Batmobile (even meeting the man who made it) and did all kinds of interesting stuff in new places (horse farms, accent classes, recording studios, etc.).
I felt pretty good about the amount of stuff I’d done, but that almost-job in New York was the jolt for me that said, “Okay, I’m probably not gonna be here forever. And even though sometimes it feels as though the east coast is a trillion miles away, legitimately I technically could need to move there at any moment. So whatever it is I do wanna do in L.A., I need to do it!”
So, I got this book to help me. I have oh so much to say about the book, which I’ll get to tomorrow.
Those were things that just kind of happened with cool invites.
I went to San Diego as well and saw Balboa Park and La Jolla Playhouse.
So, I’m exploring CA! (After all, I’m going to New York for Labor Day weekend, and how knows if I’ll come back? ;))
