super soaker

ohh summer time. when i was in new york finding a body of water was so difficult. that was honestly one of the hardest adjustments for me. taking the train in million degree humidity was a minor nightmare. it feels and smells like your in a jock strap. now that im back in la there are pools everywhere and the beach is just a short drive away.

i had a fantastic time when i went back to city. the best part was i didnt miss living there like i expected. i was prepared for an emotional downpour and it never came. actually…i think moving away was the best thing i ever did socially. everyone was just as happy to see me as i was to see them. the city is so small socially so its easy for human interaction to reach overkill levels. last week i amicably spilt with my office job, so now that im back to major free lance hustle status ill be able to grab jobs in the city and move forward with my dream of being bicoastal.

being back on the grind of finding projects and trying to make money however i can and as fast as i can is scary and so invigorating. i loved working at the agency so much, but it became clear that sitting in an office is not for me. being stressed, creative and on my grind just feels right. i feel like an ass complaining because i should be thankful just having a job, but i refuse to believe that i cant make money and a career doing what i love. just gotta stick with the passion. now in between the projects im working on i can finally take the clothing line ive been dreaming up for a couple years and make it a reality. ive also been doing freelance for peoples revolution out here which has been beyond incredible.

one thing i also realized is that i was naive to think it was impossible for me to get work doing freelance in la. in fact, while there are amazing beautiful things happening in ny, i drink my ass off there. honestly, if i had been in ny and stopped having to go to work everyday i would have been out drinking for a week before i took and shower and made a phone call. it just so easy for me to get into trouble. what could be a simple walk to the deli in could end up a night out until 4. i dont have that option here. i spend a lot of time alone and i really dont mind it. i get pretty lonely sometimes, but right now i need to focus on work. ill have time to chill later when i find a dude and start making babies.

here are some inspiring summer photos of the brooooos

    I’m stoaked you’ve joined the freelance club. The hours are chill, the stress is high but it’s awesome when your at the pool making a logo and your friends are stuck in an office. 😉
