the noho hobo

The hobo is me, in case you were wondering. I’m not making fun of an actual hobo.

So far I have applied at six different places, three of which are currently hiring. I haven’t heard back from any, and thankfully am only experiencing some light heart palpitations. I really don’t enjoy being unemployed and not knowing how long it will take for me to become employed. On Monday if I haven’t heard anything I’m just going to walk down the streets where I live and apply at every place I pass. Seeing as this will likely take the majority of the day, I’ll feel extra hobo-ish on Monday. So I’m really looking forward to that.

All in all, my time so far in LA has been really great. I finished the majority of my unpacking on Monday and Tuesday, all that there is left is to finish hanging all of my decorations up. I also decided that I’m not doing this big of a move again. Either I won’t ever move again, I’ll sell all my stuff, I’ll make some super buff friends, or I’ll be extra rich, but I really don’t want to be in this situation again. Let’s be real, moving is exhausting.

This first week has been a good one because I’ve had something planned just about every day of the week, so I haven’t had too much time to just sit in my apartment waiting to hear back about jobs. Tuesday I went to a bible study and met some other girls who are currently working in the industry. Wednesday I had coffee with a lovely lady who’s been living out here for a few years and shared some of her Hollywood wisdom with me. That was also the day I was stopped in the street and asked if I wanted to participate in the filming of a new MTV reality show. And today was the day that my alma mater was just wonderful and awesome! My roommate and I went to a watch party in Hollywood and met some other Baylor alums and really enjoyed watching the game. The new uniforms are snazzy, y’all. I really like them. We also got lunch with a friend from BUT (Baylor University Theatre) and got to catch up with her.

I’m really satisfied with my time here so far. Granted, I’ll have been here a week tomorrow, but I’m still grateful that I’ve had a good transition time and things are running smoothly with me. Hopefully soon I’ll get a job and won’t have to feel like such a hobo. Till then I’ll keep having coffee with friends and soaking up what it means to be living here. It’s an exciting time.
