Life begins again.

So I decided I'd start blogging again, it's fun and I enjoy it. Plus I'll blog but I won't journal, so it's a good way to remember my life. Don't ask about the address for my blog, it's a roommate joke, and we still can't remember how we came up with that saying, it just accidentally happened one night at dinner in Hollywood. And we all thought it was amazing, and now it's our house motto. Also our band name....had we a band.

So anyway here I am in California, doing the Southern Cali thing. Not really, the Southern Cali thing is living in the hills and being rich and trying to be an actress. We're living in a small town with 7 colleges and old people and just trying to live off jobs that pay way too little but look oh so good on resumes. I'm really not sure how long this Cali thing will go on, I still want to do school next year (which reminds me I need to start doing my applications). So pretty much I'm thinking I'm here for a year....which means until August probably. Ok so a year and a month. But if it last longer than that I'm cool with it, it's fun to live in a different state, although the whole not having seasons thing is freaking me out. I feel like it's still August when in fact we only have a week left until October frickin' starts! I've decided that California has two seasons...well SoCal has two seasons...hot and less hot. If it's the end of September and you can still lay outside by the pool in the sun you know you're in California. I kinda miss my rain, but not too much yet, I like having bright days it's much more rejuvinating. But I could use a rainy day everyonce in a while. Seriously the only rain we've had down here was I think my first week here and it rained for 10 minutes at about 9pm. It came like the fury of a thousand suns and was done with a snap of our fingers. It was weird.

So I have a job working for a lighting designer who is basically amazing, and is pretty well known in the design world (which btw is a weird weird world I'm not gonna lie). He's a cool boss and is super nice and he teaches me something new everyday. The days can be boring though, just because I can't do a whole lot yet on my own, so I do boring office stuff. But when I have actually done drawings in CAD Sandrine (the other person who has worked there for a long time) always says they look really nice and I don't have to change much on them other than where I've put some of the instructions or whatever. I've gone on a meeting with Allan (the boss) to a restaurant that we're re-doing lighting for (they did the lighting like 10 years ago) so that was fun to see how that all works. What else have I done...I got to learn all about LED from a rep the other day, they have some super cool new products. LED's are amazing...only a person with a design degree could get excited about LED! That shows how much of a dork I am!

Enough about work, next Friday the girls and I are going to Wicked! I'm really excited to see it, I've always heard it's amazing. The only sad thing is that the original cast members aren't in it, but it'll still awesome. We're gonna get dressed up and go out to dinner and have a fun out on the town. Even though we'll all be exhausted from getting up at 5 everyday and might quite possibly fall asleep during intermission! And then we have Halloween coming up and I'm going to be a bumble bee! I have my costume....well I just have to make it, I'll probably work on it this weekend. Heather's going to be Hannah Montana, and Ashlee is going to be a girl Hulk, she's the only one with her entire costume already. We think we'll go to West Hollywood, aparently that's where the party is at that night. So we were like mmmk. It'll be crazy, and I think we should have leashes so we don't loose eachother! And then the next day! we're going to see She & Him in concert! Oh man! I'm so excited! It'll be great! Well anyway I'm hungry and going to eat food now. Stay tuned for the next installment of The Life Of Jenny.
