There have been a lot of amazing things about LA - the weather, the views, the juice (not kidding, they literally juice everything). The only downside thus far is that it's becoming more and more apparent that I'm on my own out here.
I was lucky enough to meet Blaise at my internship - she was visiting her sister in LA all the way from New Zealand. We had three weeks to run around and explore before it was time for her to go back to Auckland.
I am SO happy that we go to spend this time together - up until this point I've been doing most of my exploring solo, and it was great to run around with someone my age who's just as excited to be here as I am.
Blaise and I biked up the Venice Boardwalk, explored Santa Monica, and took a tram up to the Getty Museum.
She's currently on her way back to New Zealand, but I can't wait until our paths cross again.
