Honestly, I deleted the title of the post several times. And will several more times, I’m sure of it. Well fellow readers and friends, I wanted to let y’all know I (Kyla) am leaving the big city of LA! Adios, See Ya Later, Chow, Peace Out…
Whew. Now… to take a few steps back now that I got the butt of this post out of the way!
Last year I had my quarter life crisis and I was on a mission self discovery to figure out who I was, who I had become and who I wanted to be. I can tell you right now my boyfriend about had enough of me “crying for no reason.” Makes it a little bit difficult when you can’t just blame it on a period or a cooking experiment gone wrong… Right?
Well after three-ish years of living in Los Angeles and being successful in the entertainment industry, he and I both decided it wasn’t what we wanted for our future and quit our jobs for a new life back home. In a matter of a year my thoughts came crumbling everywhere but some how found themselves in a neat little row once this decision was made. Someday I want a family, a house, a career, and a dog. Yup, a dog. And I wasn’t willing to forfeit all of that for a 60 hour a week job that wasn’t benefiting my own personal goals in life.
Now, there are a few things about LA that I will miss and always adore.
One, In and Out. Animal Style fries can cater to any life event in my life anytime. This includes but is not limited to, wedding, baby showers, bachelorette party, birthdays, anniversaries, funeral, and Tuesdays.
Two, my co-workers (the ones I liked). I’ve met some of the craziest, fun, stylish, smart, and beautiful people I have ever met in my life while working in television. The relationships I’ve made I know will not be lost and will always have a special place in my heart.
Three, the three girls I love doing this blog with. They are the most down to earth, fun, and thoughtful group of girls. I will miss them so much… seriously. Can’t beat living 2 blocks down the street from Bryce, working on the same lot as Tosha, and having a blast every time you’re in arms reach of Ali. I will miss them dearly! But will expect Skype chats, phone chats, email chats, text chats, and chatty chats always and forever.
Now, What does this all mean for OAM???
