Los Angeles (June 2014)

I spent some time the summer after graduation looking for a job. As a recent graduate, I figured that it would be hard to find a job, and hey, it certainly wasn’t a piece of cake (yum … cake). I did end up finding a job, but I took a trip to Los Angeles along the way to visit Kate Gale at Red Hen Press.

L.A. was … an eye-opener. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Midwest and Nebraska, but it was absolutely beautiful and awe-inspiring in California.

It was very different from anywhere I’d been before. Although Dublin is a city of 4 million people, L.A. is … L.A. There’s not another place exactly like it. There are landmarks everywhere you turn, and beautiful architecture and people on every street. Here, actors, writers, poets, and dreamers from all walks of life all live in a chaotic harmony.

L.A. is the city of angels, the city of dreamers. It was a wonderful, unforgettable experience. Although I returned to Nebraska to work, and I don’t regret that decision, I’ll not forget my few days in L.A. anytime soon.
