I’m Moving to Los Angeles

I’m Moving to Los Angeles

So I left New York. Again. Except this time it will be a bit more permanent. When I went back to the city in June I only intended on sticking around for a few weeks—long enough to earn enough cash to get me to LA. Thanks to a consistent flow of freelance work and some incredibly hospitable friends, I ended up staying…

Day 19: Last Day in The Bay

Day 19: Last Day in The Bay

I spent the majority of Saturday packing for Jamaica, and resting up. I did manage to make it out of the house for a quick bite to eat with Terazia, an extended family member I haven't seen since she was like 7 years old. Now she's 18 and going to…

Day 15: Leaving La-La Land

Day 11: A Day in Downtown San Diego

Day 11: A Day in Downtown San Diego

Friday was my first day in San Diego. I spent the morning browsing thrift stores on University Avenue in the North Park area, which I noticed has a ton of thrift stores and psychics. This is the hood that I got my delicious grilled cheese, at Marie's Cafe, 3016 University…

Day 11: Cheesy Lunch in North Park

Day 11: Cheesy Lunch in North Park

Sorry New York, but I think I found a better diner. One of my favorite, fatty things to order at any diner is a grilled cheese sandwich, cheese fries, and a chocolate malt or shake. Most diners in New York don't even have malts, and the grilled cheese is on…
