I am moving to London on Jan 21st for at least 4 months!
The director that I am interning for is shooting in London next year and because the assistant in the office has some family troubles in LA, she could not make the commitment to travel with him. So he asked me!!! The intern!!! Can you believe it?
I will get a little bit more money from his assistant's allocation in the budget and all I have to do is pay for my flights. I have some family friends in London that are willing to put me up for a few months so I will be saving on rent as well! I am subletting my room in LA to a good friend so I am all set.
I've never been to London! I am f**king freaking out!!! This the coolest thing to happen to me... ever! And Ophelia, you will be seeing a lot more of me! Paris is just a train ride away!
2012 here we come! May this year be the most prosperous yet for all of us! Full of laughter and successes.

How have your holidays been? How is it being home with the family?
I’ve been stuck in the city this holiday season…no vaca for me :( But to tell you the truth I don’t quite mind it. NY has been incredibly cozy and of all the places in the world, it’s the happiest place for me to be on Christmas!
My family was in town for the celebrations, and for the first time in such a long time we decided to take a carriage ride through Central Park. On any other day you have more horses waiting for a ride in the park than you have tourists ready to cash out for the expensive ride…But I couldn’t believe it! On Christmas day we literally had to wait over an hour to get a horse and carriage to take us for a stroll in the park! We waited in the cold…hot cocoa in hand…but it was well worth the fee and tip!
It was absolutely magical! You forget NY’s beauty, magic and Central Park’s serenity when you work in this city. You get so over consumed by everything: competition, money, positions, superficiality…you forget to open your eyes, stop a second, breath and see NY for what it really is! This was the highlight of my Xmas weekend and pretty much one of the best Xmas gifts I could have gotten!
Work started today again…but this time as I walked to work, down the park, past the zoo and the seals…I stopped…breathed…and savoured NY! I love this city!!

I am so sorry for not writing sooner but I have been so so so swamped at work! I got back from the most amazing trip to LA with the lovely Rose and I haven't stopped since! Back to back to back meetings and endlessly long hours! I have so much to catch you up on! Remember how I said I would be working a weekend with Damien? Well I did, and guess what... it was a disaster! I will admit, Saturday started off well enough. We got a lot done and then decided to reward ourselves by grabbing some dinner and wine at Cafe Ruc. Well, wine turned into more wine and eventually Damien confessed to sleeping with one of the interns! Yuck! Is that even legal?! ha!
On Sunday, slightly hungover, we were back at it trying to finish up the presentation. I guess Damien was a little embarrassed that he drunkenly confessed because he was back to being his usual jackass self! He actually tried to blackmail me into not speaking about his little intern indiscretion! He said if I mention it to again he would tell everyone about my relationship with the boss! That was the last straw! How dare he try even try that crap with me! Not that there is anything to tell, but I really don't need him dragging my name through the mud... especially since my boss and his fiancée have finally set a wedding date! Oh la la! My life is getting awfully compliqué!
And so, the battle against Damien continues. I really don't like him. Grrrr!
But I love you girls!
Bisous xx Ophelia

I am officially starting to drive myself mad in Hollywood. All my friends work in the industry and I spend all my free time thinking about writing and of getting ahead! I need to find something to do in this city that does not involve the entertainment industry.
I would pick up Japanese classes again if I had the money, but I think it is more important to feed myself at this point! Maybe I can find someone who wants to do a language exchange! I really have to look into it asap.
When I was younger I played guitar, drew, read a lot of books... now I pat myself on the back for making a healthy home cooked meal! I have no energy at all! It's like all the youthful spark has been sucked out of me between the hours of 9am and 7pm.
OK that's it... For the new year I am going to take up two activities outside of work that do not involve the film or tv industry.
