Dear LA

Leave a Comment

Tomorrow I start my first day interning at AEG Live. I'll be dividing my life between Los Angeles and San Diego as I finish up my last class at State, continue working at Topshop, and take up this amazing opportunity in LA. If you would have told my 18-year-old self that this is where I would end up four years later, she'd be pretty content. Now if only my current self would wrap my head around this and get over all the anxiety that I've built up...

Tina Fey once said, "Say yes and you'll figure it out afterwards." As I sit here, in my drab Airbnb, reflecting on every little moment that got me here, that quote pretty much sums it all up. I've been winging it this whole time. I said yes to pursuing a career in a field I was passionate about. I said yes to starting this blog which, in turn, gave me my outlet with Live Nation. I said yes to going to the interview in LA without knowing what the hell I'd do if I got it. But each time, I've figured it out afterwards. Through all this I'm learning that deciding what you're worthy of and narrowing your options to only what you feel you deserve really helps with your overall satisfaction with life. I'm extremely hard on myself and rarely do I ever feel like I'm where I want to be but I'm starting to feel like I'm where I need to be. Everything I've set out to accomplish from the beginning doesn't seem so far-fetched anymore.

Dear LA, I've been dreaming of you for so long. Please be good to me?
