Bio
I enjoy smiling at strangers and experimenting with strange vegetables. I fall in love easily and frequently. Formerly known as Hollywood Assistant but have left Tinseltown behind. I'm on a quest to better the world somehow, though I'm not sure what that means yet. I can neither confirm nor deny that these stories are, in fact the truth. You'll just have to go with it.

The Emotional Eater

They say that the road to recovery begins with the first step: acceptance. The funny thing about being in a new relationship after being single for a long period of time is how much it teaches you about yourself and what a bad person you could potentially be. When I was… Read full post »

Love Me For My Nom!

My boyfriend suffers from seriously heinous food allergies. On top of that, he's vegan. No yeast, no wheat, no corn, no blueberries, no cheese, no eggs, no poultry, no meat, no oranges or citric acid for that matter, and the list goes on and on. I, on the other hand, am… Read full post »

Check Back With Me In Five Years

I'm sitting in a bedroom in my grandmother's house in Hawaii the morning before my flight back to Los Angeles. It's about 7 am here. There are sounds of snoring and morning news permeating the atmosphere. Even though it's cool, the humidity is making my hair stick to my neck. I… Read full post »

I do a lot of things for my buddy with the gallery. I shred papers for him, I book bands, I make phone calls to creditors, I schedule meetings, I clean and I cook. I call him my boss, even though he's always been my friend first. He's been helping me… Read full post »

Oh My God, Am I A Cougar?

 
On of my favorite Twitter celebrities is Ken Jeong, star of The Hangover and Community, and a few days ago, he kept tweeting with the hashtag "whothefuckisjustinbeiber." And I realized that I had no idea. So I began to Google. I guess he's the 16 year old kid that… Read full post »

Switched Idiom

In times of desperation, I tend to make sense out of things that are coincidental or random. It's like finding miracles in potato chips, I only really see the Virgin of Guadalupe in a chip if I'm looking for a miracle. Otherwise, I'd just eat the chip.

I went to coffee… Read full post »

 

View

 

Why hello, Hollywood. You're looking good this morning. This is the view from my friend's apartment. I'm dogsitting for them this weekend. No fun stories about the dog, except that it likes to sleep a lot, except between the hours of 6pm & 11pm. That's when the incessant… Read full post »

I've taking up child rearing. I know, it wasn't the most expected turn of events for me, but until I can pay the majority of my parking tickets, car registration, rent, insurance, food, phone, utilities, and then finally be able to afford the registration for the GRE and then application fees,… Read full post »

Rollercoasters

At the tender age of two years old, I was quite fearless. I wanted to do and see everything. I would have jumped from the highest rock into the ocean, I would have talked to anyone even if they seemed creepy and mean, I would have played with spiders and lady… Read full post »

Unemployment Sucks

I can't pay rent this month.

My checking account is overdrawn.

 I have several parking tickets I can't pay.

I just paid for a Dr's appointment with a credit card with less than $30 of available credit left.

I still need to register my car. 

I wonder if I should have… Read full post »

The Angeles National Forest was on fire.

 The city was yet again cloaked from the cumulus pyre

And the soot spit ash sideways upways and around

Like an adolescent kiss upon the dirty ground.

We will recover said a mother to her unborn child.

She watched the house her husband… Read full post »

The White Horse

After reading this blog, the anecdote about the bar owner brought back my own memories of a place called The White Horse on Sunset & Western, located beneath the rooms of a shady East Hollywood motel.

East Hollywood, for all my years in LA, has never been the most comfortable part… Read full post »

Venturing Out of My League

I realize that there are a shitload of good looking people in Los Angeles. I also realize that I'm not in the top tier of those good looking people. I'm maybe in the upper middle region of the good looks scale, but I don't diet or exercise, and I don't consider… Read full post »

Starting A Nonprofit is Not Easy

Tonight is another trial run at the gallery. The city has been giving us some obstacles regarding our events because of some false information provided by the landlord. We're learning that there are a lot of sneaky people in the world that will tell you things that are not true for… Read full post »

Am I Ready To Rock?

A friend of mine just signed a lease on a new concert venue and gallery in Silverlake. For those of you not living in Los Angeles, this city's neighborhoods are divided into little puzzle pieced neighborhoods, each with its own identity and culture. Silverlake and Echo Park are like the Brooklyns… Read full post »

New Beginnings

I've been going over and over in my head how I was going to reveal this information on my OS blog. I couldn't quite find the words. Blogging is such a funny thing. These are incredibly personal stories we're telling, and we want to tell them just right. But in certain… Read full post »

Hawaii for the Holidays & Why I Love LA

I find myself in Hawaii, where I was raised, for this holiday season. Boy did I get the bum end of the stick. Let me tell you about some of the horrible things I’ve been subjected to while I’ve been here.

First of all, the weather is perfect. Isn’t that… Read full post »

Thoughts on Volunteering 12/12/09

I just finished my second session of monthly volunteering for a program called Reading to Kids. It reminded me a lot of my college work study that was a tutoring program for a local elementary school. So much of teaching tends to be behavior management, so it seems. It's hard to… Read full post »

A Love Letter to The Folks I Meet In Los Angeles

After reading this post, I felt the need to write a similar letter, considering I've been running into such interesting characters recently. Maybe it's because I've been hanging out with a friend of mine from Chicago and through her curious and open eyes, it's easier to remember the things that… Read full post »

This morning I woke up and it was 30 degrees Fahrenheit. I would have been depressed about it, except that I looked out my window and it was insanely beautiful. In LA, after it rains, all of the smog disappears and from the poolhouse I'm sleeping  in, you can see all… Read full post »

Babysitting Anxiety

As part of my quest for finding more meaningful activities, building more loving friendships and being a better human being in general, I offered to babysit for a friend of mine who is a stay-at-home dad tonight. Mommies and Daddies work so hard, I think its only fair to offer my… Read full post »

*Pretty quick new post on the heels of my last one I realize, but I had to put this down before I forgot*

So tonight was my first very exciting night volunteering for the Greater West Hollywood Food Coalition. Here are my impressions.

Run Ins With Ancient History

When I was a teenager, I was convinced that I was going to graduate from high school and all of that shitty shit during those awkward years was going to go away. All of that pining and wishing for acceptance- the whole "fitting in" thing that I could never figure out… Read full post »

Almost Perfect

So say you're sitting in a bar. It's one of those new bars downtown, on top of an office building and the entire city can be seen below. You're meeting some friends for drinks. You've just had a glass of Jameson's on the rocks, and you didn't realize, a month ago,Read full post »

It's The Last Time I'll Ever See Him

Once upon a time, this assistant had a lover. He wasn't a daytime lover, he wasn't even a Friday night lover, he was just a boy that gave me many an impassioned kiss in the dark. He made me forget the insecurity that I felt as an assistant, a mere minion… Read full post »
