apartment update! yaaay

hihihi guys!

so im finally settling in to L.A. fast and well and all is grand over here. i have Skype to thank for getting rid of the huge burden that was not being able to see my mikeycakes for months, and cyber face-to-face chatting is much better than plain phone chatting any day. fur reels. also mike lets roland and mr. fuzzypants into the convo every now and then, too, so it's like i have the whole cuddle club right with me when we're talking :)

anyhows, the apartments are rather pleasant despite being ancient (they were built in 1969...yeah...). i live in a quad with 3 other roomates, meaning 2 people per bedroom. sooo, even though the apt is nice and spacey upon entering, the actual bedrooms are pretty cozy - BUT they have good closet space, so this girl aint complaining! oh and each room gets their own bathroom, huzzah! (thank the big g i didnt ever have to live in a dorm with a community shower...ughh the nightmares) anyways, i'll let the pics say the rest:

my tiny little beddy

my lovely & large sliding mirror closet next to my bed. and yes, that is my queen comforter folded over, and yes i do sleep wrapped up like a burrito every night, cozy as can be :)
oh but dont mind my lack of a bedskirt, i am a gross college student just trying to make it by. u kno...

inside half of my messy closet, the rest of my more casual clothes are shoved into my dresser. yay for adequate clothes space :D

i cant believe i packed 2 huge luggages and these were the only pairs of shoes i could manage to take...i miss you, shoes back home! esp. my boots collections (see you in the winter!)

i have the left side of the dresser with the mirror, so appropriate for my vainass self. yah jk.

practically empty kitchen. someone come cook for me please!

dining room from afar

living room...with NO TV. wahh wtf, so all cable/premium channels are included in tuition but they failed to mention how they took out the acual tvs entirely...

and lastly patty the patio (my 'mates have no idea ive just now named her that, but i think it rings pleasantly)

alright so that's all for our actual apartment today, hopefully have more pics of the fun extra stuff/amenities they have on location - like the pool/jacooz (which i laid by most of today, maybe actually swim in tomorrow), tennis court, volleyball court, etc.

oh but most importantly, i want to thank you for all your warm and welcoming wishes, it really meant a lot and made me less homesick and more at ease. kishes for you! :)

hooray im in LA!

hi lovies!

sorry ive been a bad blogger all last week and longer, but ive been rushing around like a mad woman trying to settle in my new home of 3 months in LA. just wanted to let you know ive arrived safely (though not a happy camper...i hate hate haaaate flying - smelly planes, no personal space, crappy food/drink, forced sitting, etc.) and me and the 3 other roomies are just settling in (slowly but surely!). though it's really sad of me to say because i just got here, but i am really homesick missing mike, roland (my bunny), and mr. fuzzypants (his/our kitty). gotta keep telling myself not to stress, and i'll see them again soon (flying air kisses from one coast to the other!)

just not from this ^ guy...

anyhows, no personal pics for today, as i am beyond mentally exhausted. just wanna let you ladies know ive missed you and will try catching up on all your blogs asap! but pls dont get mad if im scarce on posts for the first move-in month, you can just expect crazy LA stories to make up for it :) haha o boy i dont know if i can live up to that statement...!

1 week til moving day, commence freak out!

hello lovies!

so as some of you may already know, i am moving exactly 1 week from today to spend my fall semester (finally a senior btw, yessir!) at my college's Los Angeles Program. the whole point is to give students interested in the entertainment industry (mostly film and marketing students, of which i am the latter) the opportunity to attain an internship in some of the most successful companies out there. so far i've had phone interviews with ABC/Disney and NBC/Universal, and i am scheduled for an in-person interview with Focus Features the week i arrive.

needless to say, i am sooooper excited but also nervous/emo about leaving behind my loved ones :[ but hey, it's only 3 months and the semesters always fly by for me, and though im going to miss autumn (one of my favorite seasons, and definitely worth the trip to New England if youve never seen/been), i'll be home in time for christmas in the city paved with snow (the only way it should be spent, just imo...though i can do away with february's brutal wind storms)!

anyhows, i'll be living here in the Oakwood Apartments
in Toluca Hills with 2 other roomies:

complete w/ a furnished kitchen

living room


outdoor pool

tennis court (wish i didnt loose my rackets, boo)


the view of the hills from the apts

look out hollywood, im comin' fo yaaah :)
