What a whirlwind these last two weeks have been. It started last Thursday when.. I GOT A JOB! Yippee! It’s basically my dream job. How the hell that happened, I have no idea. Well, Oprah would say it was opportunity meeting preparation, also known as luck. This past Monday I started as the social media/pr/office/store front manager at Von Lintel, a furniture design company. Yes, I am responsible for all of those things. Which is exactly what I wanted! I will also get the opportunity to actually do some building, which is super cool because I’d love to make furniture design and wood working a more regular hobby. The picture above is from inside the store front.
On Saturday, Jesse and I hiked around the Angeles National Forest. We spent what felt like just a few minutes in the car to get there. Absolutely one of the best parts about living in LA is how quickly you can go from city to nature. It was practically perfect weather, and we even saw a deer.. which park ranger Jesse then informed me meant there was likely a mountain lion near by. We never saw one, and I can’t say I was too disappointed by that.
I’ve also been spending a bunch of time with my brother. On Wednesday we biked around downtown. I recently discovered this amazing Polish street art duo called Etam Cru, and when I found out they had piece up in LA I had to see it. This one is called Mr. Rooster, and I think I’m in love. You can see more of their work here.
With Monday came more good news, which is almost official. Normally, I don’t like to share good news until it is official but.. I HAVE A PLACE TO LIVE! I know, right. How is this all happening so quickly and so perfectly?! Andrew text me that his and Jesse’s neighbors were moving out, making their three bedroom available. He asked if I would want to move in with the two of them. I can bring the cats, I have my own bathroom, and I have a walk in closet. HELLO BEST DEAL EVER. I can’t wait to live with two awesome guys and get back into a normal schedule that involves my own bed and cooking regular meals.
