Nicole. 23. I had the same description in here for way too long.

 

The ice cream truck is outside my window right now, and it’s pretty janky and it plays tunes like Frere a Jacques and Swan Lake and It’s a Small World andMy Darling Clemetine, but because of copyright law all of the songs are SLIGHTLY different. It’s weird.

This was found right outside my apartment on the grass. You keep doing you, Silver Lake.

This was found right outside my apartment on the grass. You keep doing you, Silver Lake.

So I live in Silver Lake. Quiet, nice little neighborhood in Los Angeles. Lots of bearded men and oxford shoes roam these parts. We live just on the edge, bordering Filippinotown, so there are lots of families on our street. We live on a nice street, its got a hill, its got lots of parking spots, and there are lots of cats that walk around all the time! In fact, because I’m lazy and I don’t get my car washed often, I have little kitty pawprints all over my car from where the cats walk on it at night. So, as previously stated, nice little neighborhood.
And then we have this house. The house with the same sign plastered all over it. The SAME house that took down most of their (but still retained some) posters that say “Armenian terrorists live here,” the house that keeps THESE posters up for whatever reason. The house that has creeper windows so that the people inside can stare you down as you walk past (which happened to me more than once), the house with the junk all over the front yard.
I am confused by this house. I try to take pictures every time I walk by, but I get nervous that they are waiting for someone to take a picture so they can shoot them sniper style from their windows. Photo credit to my roommate, earmuffsoncookies, who is much braver than I.

If you guys want to know where I am over the next few days, it will be in one of these places, or between two of these places. Kelsey and I are driving cross country to start our ~brand new lives in LA. We might make a travel blog tonight so you can all document our derpin’ across America.
To LA!!!

This isn’t the most fun thing.

I do this all day. Except that there aren’t nearly as many dots because there are three rooms that we need, and apparently LA has NO three bedroom apartments in our price range. THANKS.

Three weeks.


It’s funny. When I got to Boston four years ago, I fell in love with it, and told myself I could spend the rest of my life here. However, coming to Boston gave me multitudes of other opportunities to go travel around the world and the country, and now, this city that I once loved so much is so constricting to me. I love walking the streets of the city, but there is something about it that isn’t really home anymore. I’m not sure I really have a home right now, though I’ll always consider wherever my family is home. I hope that within the next few months I can call Los Angeles my new home, since its the first city since Boston that makes me want to get up and do some amazing things.
I’m just really looking forward to the next chapter of my life, and I’m thrilled to say that it begins on May 14th. Bring it on, real life. I’m comin’ for ya.

I never would have guessed that the ocean is lacking in the pedestrian sidewalks.

I Know One of my LA-Based Followers Wants a Beagle

emmaeuphoria:

40 of the Spanish Beagles who were locked in cages have arrived in LA to be adopted. Click the link for more info.

Poor dogs. Treating a dog (or any animal for that matter) like that for “animal testing” is a horrific thing to do. Apparently, none of them had ever seen the sun until recently. Hoping they all find fantastic homes.

As Nicole drunk tumbl’s the day before her birthday

I love LA.  I love LA. I love it here, this is brilliant, everyone doing the LA Program is fantastic and nice and I had SUCH a wonderful time tonight.

And tomorrow will be my birthday. Tomorrow is the shittiest, saddest, most horrific day of the entire year, yet it is also my birthday, and I feel so terribly bad for celebrating it. I always do. And I’m pretty sure I always will, but alas I can’t help it.

Tomorrow is my 21st birthday, and I think instead of said Boston bar from before that I found out only serves beer, I will be going to Universal City, because it is close and I had a lot of fun there tonight and there is a mechanical bull there. Or maybe I won’t. Or maybe I will regret this post in the morning. It is so very late at night and I am so very tired and my hands ever so hurt from typing this!

But I’ve been waiting for my birthday for so long, because I love birthdays, and tomorrow won’t be any different. Now I am tired, and I will probably lol at this in the morning. Not probably,  I WILL lol at this in the morning.

Goodnight, world. See you on the flip side.

I am so proud I made ,o spelling mistakes.

Ok, goodnight.

Due to the Hurricane

I am leaving for LA tomorrow instead of Sunday. North Carolina from Saturday night to Tuesday and off to LA from there! I won’t be updating here that much, if at all, but please do follow my travel blog that I am keeping with Emma @ eclaroadtrip.tumblr.com. It will be fabulous, I promise!

Speak to you all again from the left coast!

So.

I’ve been offered one internship so far at Warner Music…in the video department. That is not something that I am keen on doing. HBO basically forgot I applied and just e-mailed me apologizing because everything is filled, and another department in Warner went with someone else. I’m not particularly upset that I didn’t get these specific internships, because they aren’t exactly what I want (though its annoying that the internship I’ve been offered is something I’m not interested in either), its just that now I’m starting to freak out. I have two interviews lined up for when I get to LA, and they are both in the top 5 internships that I want. I am slowly sending out follow up e-mails, and I know that I’ll be fine, but as time gets closer and closer to going to LA and the only internship that I have on reserve is a video editing internship, it makes me a little nervous.

But all in all…its still LA, and I’m still so very excited, because I suppose no matter what internship I get I’ll learn something awesome out of it, and I DO have an interview with my top internship choice when I get there!

MTV has e-mailed me.

They want to interview me for an internship when I’m out in LA. What? Is this real life? It can only get better from here.

You Should Follow Our Road Trip Blog.

emmaeuphoria:

In a little over 2 months, Nicole, Colin and I are going to be taking an epic cross-country road trip. Nicole and I decided today that this trip is going to need a blog. THUS

www.ECLARoadtrip.tumblr.com

While there is nothing on there now, and we won’t be posting all that much until the actual trip begins, you should totally follow us. I promise it will be quite entertaining.

Do what she says! This is the blog I will be sharing with Emma during our road trip. I kind of want to link it to my account, if that’s possible. It will be full of notes and pictures of our trip from New York to Los Angeles.

If anyone is curious, right now the plan is New York>Gastonia, NC>Atlanta>New Orleans>San Antonio>Roswell, NM>Grand Canyon>Palm Springs, CA>LA. I promise it will be fun, and we want to submit it for an EVVY! Go follow it! We will begin updating at the end of August, but for now…just follow :D

Tomorrow.

Tomorrow is a big day. Though it might not seem big, Emma and I are going to lunch. That isn’t the big part. We are going to lunch at Trident (which is awesome) and we are bringing our laptops and we are going to plan our trip out to LA. This is a huge part of my life, and I can’t believe that its starting so soon. California is somewhere I have never been, and I am beyond ecstatic to be going out there to begin a new chapter in my life. I had a really long talk with a good friend today and in the end I really got to thinking about who I am now compared to who I was five years ago. There are so many things in my life that have happened in those five years that really have shaped who I am. We talked about regrets, and what we would have done differently, and I’m not sure that I would have done anything differently. No matter how bad some of the things that have happened seem to have been, without those triumphs and mistakes, I would not be where I am today. So tomorrow I plan my trip that begins the rest of my life.
