Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

By Alexa Lesnewich

As cliché as my title is, it is completely true.  The first week here felt so slow and now all of the sudden I am in my seventh week here.  Los Angeles and the surrounding area are absolutely amazing and it is important to take advantage of it while you can.  As much as I feel like I have explored and seen California, I really haven’t seen anywhere close to what I want to see.  Every day you can, explore a new place even if it’s only for a little bit.  Take every single opportunity.  Some things I have done so far in order to take advantage of this amazing opportunity is to go to a Sportsnation taping, where I might possibly want to work and just hand the producer my card.  Or go to Youtube Space and enjoy free food and drinks while meeting incredible people.  Everyone here wants to help you, you just need to reciprocate.  It may seem like your time here is long, but it goes by extremely fast.  I am going to take every opportunity to explore and meet people and just enjoy every second here.  If you have the chance to come out here, don’t second guess yourself, just do it.  I never thought this experience would be this incredible, but your teachers alone are amazing contacts that you need.  They all know the industry extremely well and genuinely want to help you get a job and succeed.  So if you are thinking about LA Semester, just do it.  You will not regret it.
