Thanksgiving day marked my one year anniversary of living in Los Angeles. All day, family and friends asked me how I feel about my first year here and what I’m thankful for. I have a love/hate relationship with LA. The traffic is terrible, but it’s okay because the weather and scenery are beautiful so the top on my car never goes up. The people and the “LA attitude” took some getting used to, and it seems that the image of HOLLYWOOD clouds a lot of people’s minds and judgement. Luckily, I have people very close to me that keep me out of the hype and focused on what I am here to do, and I feel nothing but joy because I recognize my blessings.
I am very thankful for my family. My mom and dad are very amazing people and I love them very much. I appreciate my ancestors from every side of the family. I am thankful for negativity because I recognize what’s real and surround myself with nothing less than positivity. I walk with the light of God around me always. I am thankful that I know what unconditional loves feels like. I am thankful that I have awesome friends that have been here with me this past year and new additions to the crew that I am so glad have walked into my life. I’m looking forward to this next year and all our progress.
Jenna and I spent Thanksgiving at my friend Ernest Pierce’s apartment with some of the actors and crew I worked on a film with. It was a fun-filled night packed with crazy board games, good food, and absurd conversation.
After the game ended, we went to hang out on the roof, look at the L.A. skyline, and talk about all of our hopes, dreams, and other such things.
Pierce was busted for trying to cheat.
