Excited With Dread

Flora, so glad you are in good spirits.  Are you interviewing then?  Will you stay in NYC?

My weeks in London are numbered now that we are in post-production on this production. I have, however, been having loads of fun with a lovely editor from Deluxe.  Teehee... somehow I always manage to mix work with pleasure.  I just love his accent... swooon.  It's just fun for now and plus I am headed back to SoCal soon so there is no point getting serious about it all.  Just enjoying each day as it comes.

As excited as I am to be back on the west coast, I am dreading the dynamic with the assistant.  Should I start looking for a proper job or stay at this internship.  At least it is paid... and I love absolutely everything about it.  I just don't know if I could handle being the assistant to the assistant when we get back.

Ophelia, I am definitely making a stop in Paris before I head back to LA.  I'll keep you posted on a specific weekend.  Maybe I will bring my editor with me... ass like a peach ;) haha

Lots of love ladies!  Miss you as always.

Day by Day

Hello chicas !

Well girls I’m not doing too badly…Life has definitely changed and I’m now quite literally counting my pennies, but in doing so I’m also finding that I’m appreciating things much much more, taking life day by day.

This morning for instance…I splurged…I treated myself to a tall, non fat chai latte at Starbucks ! I have been dying for one ever since I got back from my travels  in Asia (and ever since I have been feeling better !). It sounds silly, but I’ve never appreciated a chai latte like the one this morning. My mouth was literally watering as I waited at the counter for someone to call out « Flora » and hand me my delicious drink !

I’ve also taken on a few other funky and odd hobbies to take the stress of the job hunt…I’m trying my hand at this Bikram yoga thing…There are a bunch of centers for Bikram in NY that offer these deals where for a 2 week trial period you pay 20$ and get unlimited classes ! So what I’ve started doing is literally changing centers every 2 weeks !! haha…I shouldn’t be proud…but at least I end up paying 40$ per month for unlimited yoga ! And I keep fit !!

Life has definitely taken a 360… I’m broke…I have no job…I’m taking life step by step and day to day…but one thing i have gained is hope. I know things are going to go well and I know  that sometimes you need extreme changes to find yourself and figure out exactly what you want and what you were made to do.

Sounds silly but girls I promise next time we see each other, you will see that this change is for the better !! And I have some pretty exciting new travel plans to tell you chicas about !!!

Lots of love until next time,

Master Of Itineraries

A little venting session!  I have just spent the entire day trying to sort out how to get my boss on the Eurostar Frequent Traveller program and after hours of resubmitting and struggling to figure out what I was doing wrong, it turned out it was a fault in the system!  So frustrating!

To be honest, I feel like I should be the one racking up the points for his weekend escapades around Europe anyway... Why is it that the more money you make and the higher up the ladder you climb, you end up receiving increasingly more free stuff!  Like if a studio is paying to fly you around... shouldn't the studio get the flying miles?  Ha!  

Or better yet, if an underpaid intern is spending the time booking flights/trains and writing up the most detailed and beautiful itineraries you have ever seen... would you not create a frequent flyer account for them and let them rack up the points... because chances are they will never be able to afford a bloody vacation at this rate!  Fat chance! 

And believe me I could use a vacation from all this bloody rain in London.  Turns out I have developed California blood after all! Brrrrr
