I don’t think you can ever replace the feeling of the home you grew up in, and if I was looking for that, maybe I was misguided. In the past four years, I’ve been to Syracuse and now Los Angeles, with each step looking for a place that would feel familiar; and in all honesty I have yet to find it. Los Angeles is an incredible place to work on your craft and meet new people, but I’m not sure I will ever replace waking up in my own bed. This is not a slight on Los Angeles, I still plan to move out here after I graduate and I’m incredibly excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, but I think part of growing up is realizing that expanding out of your comfort zone is necessary for growth. I don’t know how long I’ll be out in LA, but I’ll be sure to come back to Westchester at some point or another at certain times in my life; nothing is fleshed out. Maybe I haven’t given this city enough time, but it sure fees like either way, it’s going to take a while to get used to.
