  • Hey guys! Just updating you guys what's been going on with my life recently.

  • I just moved out to L.A. Yeah!

  • (MUSIC)

  • So I've been living in L.A. for over a week now, and it's been really interesting here.

  • Let's rewind and take it back to my first day.

  • Day one.

  • This is actually my first time moving out and living by myself.

  • It's such a new experience because I've never been so far away from my friends and family.

  • I've always wanted to travel alone, and now for it to finally happen, It's just so surreal

  • Day two was when I realized that I have to start growing up.

  • I went grocery shopping, and I was like "what do I need to buy?" Like for myself. Like "what am I gonna eat for breakfast and lunch and dinner?"

  • Like I have to think about these things.

  • Back at home, my mom always made me food, so now that I have to find food for myself, like I'm trying to be healthy, but yeah...

  • "Sorry mom! That ain't gonna happen!"

  • Day 3 was when I went out to explore the whole city.

  • The Hollywood strip is very lively because it's a tourist place, so there's a lot of sights to see.

  • There's practically street performance everywhere you go.

  • When you're walking down the street, you'll see so many characters like Spiderman, Batman, Superman, and many more.

  • I learned that if you take a photo with them, you have to pay money, so make sure you've got some cash ready.

  • In this area, you'll definitely be quite entertained!

  • Day 4 was when I started to kinda meet new people, and that was really cool.

  • We would exchange numbers, and we would tell each other that whenever we're free, we'll hang out.

  • I realize now that not everyone is always free like me,

  • so most of the time when my friends can't hang out, I'll just be chilling at home not doing anything.

  • Day 5 was when I realized that I'm actually alone

  • All my friends and family are in Vancouver, and no one's gonna hang out with me!

  • I started questioning like my whole trip, and like "what am I doing?", "Why am I here?" Um, like "what are my plans?"

  • Everyone goes through this.

  • When you're by yourself, and you hear noise, you're just like... "what the heck was that?"

  • Like I would be studying, writing something, and like what the barnacles was that noise going on there? OK, that is quite scary.

  • But yeah you know I'll be sleeping on my bed, and I would hear noise, and I'm like oh my God, what the heck was that?

  • So it's got... day five was scary.

  • Day six was when I realize that I had to stop being so lazy, and actually start living life again.

  • Um so... I took out my damn calendar, and wrote up like what I am gonna do like every single day to keep myself busy.

  • Sounds good!

  • So if you're like me, and you're living in a whole new city by yourself, just remember that the first week is the hardest.

  • Yes, you can be lonely, and you can be sad, but you know what?

  • That is life! You can't always have people around you.

  • Try to appreciate the time that you have for yourself, and really focus on yourself

  • You'll only grow from here!

  • Anyways, I'm gonna go back to Facebook stalking, so have a nice day! Later days! And I'll see you guys next week.

  • Okay, bye guys!

Hey guys! Just updating you guys what's been going on with my life recently.
