A Pleasant Surprise

A Pleasant Surprise

By Trevor Bulger

Coming to Los Angeles has been completely different than I expected. To be honest, my thoughts about the LA semester included the belief that I was going to absolutely hate the city, and my only reason for coming was the professional experience I wanted to receive from my internship. I’ve been here for almost three months, though, and I’m enjoying this city. I’m enjoying my classes, and my internship, and as I look for jobs in the entertainment industry this is perhaps my top choice for where to live. At times, this place is lonely, but that would be true of any of the cities I might go to for work, and there are people from Syracuse University constantly coming to find work and live here, or coming for a semester like I have. Between the professional experience and that network of students and alumni, I have really enjoyed my semester in Los Angeles.
