50 for LA

Los Angeles is Creativity.

In the streets. In the air. In my soul.

In the man sitting next to me and the woman five cars behind.


Its lights, its streets, its culture, its sounds; Its feeling has found a place in my heart to settle – and now I am better.

New place, new people, new adventures…

Crosswalks instead of jay walking

Pacific Ocean instead of Atlantic 

Hip Hop instead of ballet

Meeting Natalie Portman instead of professors

Kale instead of lettuce

Sunshine instead of rain

Real world instead of the Elon bubble

Amazing instead of average

My L.A. in 50 Words

Longing for a dream to come true

Oceans and beaches on the weekends

Sunny weather every day of the week

Artistic freedom

New people, new places, new things

Graffiti on every wall 

Everything you could ever want 

Loving every moment 

Every day filled with adventures

Sitting in traffic for hours

LA in 50 Words

Driving down the Hollywood Freeway.

Listening to the same music, but it sounds different, more exciting.

This is what you’ve been waiting for.

So much work. So. Much. Work. 

But you got here, you are a part of it and you can do anything you want. 

Life is just beginning.


LA in 50

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.

Maddie’s 50 Words

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.

LA in 50 Words

Los Angeles has no country music stations. No fireflies. No green grass. No empty back roads.

But it’s okay.

 There’s sand between my toes. There’s the sound of waves crashing. There’s an endless clear, turquoise ocean turning into a vast, deep blue sky. And there are still long summer nights.
