Not too hot during the day.
Not too cold at night.
Los Angeles, the City of Angels, what an incredible sight.
Avenues of bright lights and famous stars,
Street after street, jam-packed with cars.
Good times abound from downtown to the valley,
Nothing beats the groovy vibes of Cali.
L.A. is four million people. I’m often afraid to drive counter to all of these travelers. I’m afraid to look into the eyes of the homeless.
Yet, I LIVE here to meet the astonishingly inventive people who enjoy helping me succeed. I LEARN here so I can become like them.

Parking is hell
Emergency brakes exist
Hills do too
Humidity does not
Gas is expensive
Deers can be road kill
Hikes are rewarding
Juice is a verb… or can be used as such
Lemonade from lemonade is heavenly
Cameras make good sidekicks
Dancing in public is accepted
LA is pretty great

Leave early. Read parking signs twice.
Be glad you’re there. Make yourself an indispensable team member. Be a god of interning.
Do good work. Work with people who know what they’re doing.

I am so sad that my time here is through.
No one will miss you more than I will do.
Oh the friends I have made, to name a few:
Beau, Kyle, Gary, Plinko, Conan, and that last supper painting.
Now I will take my handbag and leave this ciudad.
