The Boys & The Hollywood Hills

The Boys & The Hollywood Hills

Besides painting tiny toe-nails and absorbing a new environment, our week was consumed with “The Apartment Search”. Rarely is the apartment search a grand pleasure and when you have four young people with no current employment, two dogs, beach aspirations, and a limited wallet, finding some place that will take you, and some place that you want, can be challenging. Originally we thought we would want to live in Silverlake or West Hollywood but once you’ve been to the beach everything else sort of pales in comparison, at least for our free spirited troop. Our troop, by the way, consists of my appallingly sarcastic and dashingly handsome boyfriend, Guillaume, and two of my very favorite people and good friends from home, Chris Shin and Tad Brown.

The Pacific

The Pacific

This week has gone rather smoothly despite occasional doses of anxiety at the prospect of total newness, minor traffic battles, and post-amazing road trip blues. The seductive promises of Hollywood and easy way of life (at least so far) has kept the whole transition very romantic. Plus, being able to stay with my extremely fabulous cousin Kerry, her husband and my new favorite little person, Jesse, helps LALA land feel not-so-foreign. The next best thing to being a child and having the gift of being able to play and pretend is being with a child and having the gift of being able to play and pretend without anyone thinking you are a maniac for walking sideways and using your hands as crab pinchers.
