Perseverance is Key!

I’ve been in transition the last 4 years in Los Angeles.  I’ve moved a total of 10 times, from living in a house with 14 strangers on a bunk bed, to a studio on my own, to my best friend moving from Seattle to stay with me– we had 1 mattress on the floor, 2 tables, two chairs, and a handful of silverware, to eventually moving into a friend’s living room curtained off, to living in my car, to moving with my two best friends from Seattle in a 1 bedroom penthouse in Hollywood, to a high-rise condo with a stranger that became a friend, to a friend’s loft downtown, to a 2-bedroom apartment in Sherman Oaks and then West Hollywood with a new found relationship that took it’s own journey, to now a studio again, but this time on my own. 312 more words
