Los Angeles Skyline, originally uploaded by mnerd.
I like it here. I do.
I have had time to talk to a few friends from High School here and there. By that, I mean I've talked with 2 girls, briefly. I've heard stories of friends that have found partners and gotten married or engaged to be married. I'm all very excited for them. I am.
At the same time I wonder what would have happened if I had stayed in Texas. First of all, it would have been completely out of character for me to stay there. But...if I had...what would have happened?
When I begin to think of it, I cringe. It's just not me.
This makes me happy with the choices and paths I've taken to get where I am today. I am happy with how life has turned out for me so far.
I have a lot more living to do, but I like living here.
So thanks Los Angeles, City of Angels, City of Broken Dreams...you've kept my dream alive, one step at a time.

Like a kid in a candy store!
They've given me free reign! Why would they do such a thing? They don't know me. They don't know where I've been, what I've done. But none-the-less I have been entrusted with an editing station.
Not ONLY that...but I've also been trusted with an Exterminating Job to String together, otherwise known as putting the story together. HOW FUN!!?
So far so good. I'm having a good time of it. Thank goodness this opportunity came along. I was starting to get bored.

You have to understand that gay men with a boyfriend or partner (we'll call them that if they're more than boyfriends) have nothing to gain by complimenting a single straight girl.
They're not trying to get in your pants, like a straight guy might be.
And, they're not complimenting you to find out how they can get the same shirt, or skirt or to learn your secret, like a straight girl might be.
After the journey to my new haircut was finished, I wasn't totally sure of it. The first girl I went to at the Paul Mitchell School really didn't care at all about the cut she was giving me. She hacked away at it and didn't spend the time to do it right. I'm pretty sure that her scissors were dull too. A C- student if I ever saw one. Once I went home and started to flat-iron my hair...I saw the chunks! The awful chunks she had hacked off of my head. I hated it, and it made me anxious.
I called another salon and went to see a new stylist. Yelp.com as my guide, I went to one in Burbank the next day. Paid good money and got a cut that's better, but that I hadn't completely warmed up to yet.
I hadn't been wearing it comfortably, or all that confidently.
Don't get me wrong, I had gotten compliments on the finished cut. Each one cut away at the insecurity I had about the new cut. Until...
Ron, the partner of one of my co-workers (whom I had never met) said that he really liked it and likened it to Natalie Portman. (again!) ;)
My reaction..."Really?!??!!" *sigh of relief*
On another note...Pat's boyfriend Louis told me I had great eyebrows. ?? Thank you?

Here's the screen shot from the first episode!
Shannon and I kick ass and take names.
Well...this is super cool to be in the credits of a show you watched religiously in its first season.
Sometimes its all worth it in the end.

Lock it up girl. Lock it up.
Shut it down. Shut it down.
Keep it going.
I chatted online with an old old friend from the Film Camp I went to in High School. She more or less came out to me, and although I've had friends that were lesbians, never had any of them talked to me about their relationships.
Same problems. Same issues, different gender. Relationships are all the same. The best thing she said during our conversations was this:
"i've learnt three things in the past year, when it comes to relationships... be cool when you're in it... break shit when its over... and the world is not just"
I also discovered some fun lost videos of the PAs and Production Crew of Shear Genius. I don't think I'm allowed (by the confidentiality agreement) to post them here...in fact, I'm pretty sure I'm not. Seeing as how I don't want to get sued...maybe I'll just post a few screencaps of people's faces so you can see the faces behind the scenes. Maybe? Eh...still don't want to get sued. The drama!!
There's also a shakedown about to happen at work...after the holiday we'll see what happens!
