Lot 48: The love of my life

The love of my life

Sometimes I have dreams about being back in Los Angeles and in the dream I start crying because I missed it so much. And then I wake up and by the time I am in the shower I am crying for real.

I don't know how to fully explain my love for LA. I have said it in before and I will say it again. There was never an adjustment period for when I was in LA. From the moment I pulled in, I thought "ya, I've lived here my whole life. Of course I have. I am so immediately comfortable here, this is the only logical explanation as to why I feel like I am finally....home."

I felt like that from the moment i arrived. And for the first time in my life, I felt like I belonged. For the first time in my life, I felt like I FIT IN. I felt...........complete.

Utah is a wonderful place filled with families and hard working people but they aren't power hungry enough. It isn't big enough. There isn't enough creativity going on. Everyone is Mormon.  I like being the only Mormon around because I get the opportunity to have so many missionary experiences.  I'm perfect for this business we call show, it is in my blood. I am perfect for this business and this business is perfect for me and LA is perfect.

I am a writer. I write sitcom scripts. I write television. Comedy television. I love television (Kenneth Parcel anyone??). I will go back. My dreams will come true and things will work out. I will move back. But in the meantime I going to visit next weekend and I COULDN'T BE MORE EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!

I know I always said that I will never visit and the next time i come is when I move there but I can't take it anymore!!!!!!!! 10 days!!!! Counting the minutes. Literally. I have a countdown app on my phone.


Things I miss:
1. the climate.  It's so warm.  It doesn't snow, as opposed to the death that is winter here in Salt Lake.
2. the palm trees.  it is so pretty there.  there are so many trees!  we don't have trees here!
3. the beach
4. that is the entertainment capital of the world
5. the people.  they are all so creative and excited to create and driven
6.  the size of  the city.  i love big cities.
7.  the hollywood hills.  i miss driving around them to get to work everyday.  and i miss driving to the top of the hill to pick up my boss to bring him to the office because he hadn't driven home from the bar the night before and therefore didn't have a car.  
8.  reading scripts all day everyday.  so many scripts.  
9. having a say on whether or not the script should be made.  having people value my opinion.  bliss.
10. feeling on belonging and fitting in.  
11. my friends.  kristine, patria, hayley, tyler, collin, i miss you all.
12. the galer house

I could go on for a few hours.  

LA, my goodness I love you.  You are the love of my life.  Man oh man oh man my goodness oh my word geez omg i love you.  i love you, i love you, i love you. i will live in that city forever.  my whole life.  i will die in that city.  i will be buried in that city.  i can't wait to be a california resident, lets make my love for you official, my dear los angeles.
