Welcome. And help me.

Hello Everyone, 

Thank you for visiting my blog. I am looking for a job. Any job. 

LA is beautiful. LA is crazy. I saw my first celebrity the other day. Even though it was only Chris Brown, seeing him in his red convertible blasting his music (really loud btw) made me realize: Holy Cow...I am living in Los Angeles. 

The job search. Is not going so well. How can it be that in a city this big there's nothing for little old me to do? 

I decided to take the gloves of and shove my problem in everybody's face. 

Fellow Angelinos,
