So, here I am again…
At the moment im sitting in Los Angeles, my friend on whos couch im sleeping is currently at work. I am happy for the alone time.
I was given a map and a bicycle so I could find my way around downtown LA. I am having difficulties comprehending the vastness of the city or rather the cities and the whole of America. I always misjudge the distance thinking it is a 20 min walk when it is in actuality a good 60 min walk. I don't mind the walking but it is not like I am walking in the woods.
I have spent 2 nights here in LA and I am struggling with finding something interesting to do. Now don't get me wrong, LA is a beautiful city that has a lot to offer such as shopping and celebrities. But after working on ship and specially after being in and around many countries, I have gotten fed up with capitals and big shopping areas. Same same everywhere, from Hong Kong - Sydney - The states and Europe. I am still trying to think of what it is that I need from here.
I think at this very moment all I really would like to do is going to a very small town somewhere in Texas and see what that life is like. This would be something new for me. I would like to be around a horse farm helping out for a week or a few days with whatever I can offer. Remove myself from city life.
Thanks to my friend I get to experience the side of LA and Hollywood that I would expect to find here. The movie industry, the struggle of an unknown actor trying to make his way to his star. I have been to support group meetings where they play, act and learn from each other with a teachers help.
We also went for an audition where I sat in anxiousness trying to mentally convince the director that they should pick my friend for the role. It was a lot of fun, the drinking after the practice was interesting. So many strong personalities in one room trying to be the center of attention. Actors!
I do believe I must explain what has happened since the end of my contract on Crystal Serenity
This I will do starting with the beginning in Costa Rica, San Jose 22nd of April 2012.
