I’ve been wanting to shoot at a magazine stand for a while now! It’s super hard to find one that will let you take pictures at just to be safe I had to sneak these! So while they aren’t the exact poses and angles I wanted I still like how they came out!
I went to take pictures and ended up seeing a few of the pieces from work on those glossy inked up pages. Even though I have obviously seen the pictures before, it was cool seeing the pictures up for the rest of the world to see just sitting there waiting to be read along the same street as cafes and shops.
I am so happy that I moved to LA and do not want to be on reality TV or be an actress. Props to all the people who come here to pursue their dream of being famous (or having their 15 minutes of fame), but that is just not me and I am so happy about that. It’s hard to make it in a city so saturated with “talent”. I am so glad I am here for the experience and that I have actually achieved my goal of working in a fashion showroom. I am happy with not being in the circles of people who are on tv or aspiring to be. The girls I know here are so down to earth and so sweet and they are who I want to be around. While a few of them are aspiring actresses, the girls I do hang out with like that are still good people and not the kind of soul-sucking, will do anything for a gig kind of people.
Back to the work post, I am loving my job. The people I work with are so helpful and really push me to be a better worker. I have learned a lot about myself and my strengths and weaknesses. I have learned a lot about accepting responsibility when you make a mistake and how to keep pushing through. While I really do hope to grow here I know I am lucky to have had this opportunity regardless. This is exactly what I wanted to do when I thought of doing PR. I have pretty much attained my end goal. That also leaves me wondering then, what will be next for me? Will I stay here and continue to grow or will I one day have a new goal of being something else? Whatever it may be, I am happy where I am now.
