Today’s blog is honestly a love story starring yours truly and the Los Angeles metropolitan area. I wrote earlier about exploring Los Angeles, so this week I want to write about just what I did this past week to give a sense of how much of a difference living in the heart of somewhere like LA makes.
Last tuesday, I went to class at 9:30 am as usual, and then drove off campus over to Burbank to see a taping of the Ellen show. I got tickets just by applying online, and got to watch Ellen’s 1999th episode live.
Diddy Riese Celebrity Sighting
Friday night my friends and I headed over to Westwood to go buy an obnoxious amount of cookies at Diddy Riese. We’re waiting in line when a nice man asks us if he can cut us in line, and in return buy our cookies for us. He didn’t really seem concerned that we were each buying a dozen cookies, but we shrugged it off until someone else in line asked to take a picture with him and we realized Chris Paul of the LA Clippers just bought us like 40 chocolate chip cookies.
This morning I headed over to Eaton Canyon to go on a morning hike (noon being my definition of morning during the weekend). I drove maybe 30 minutes away from campus and hiked 3 miles over to a cute waterfall, and then crossed a few creeks before heading to In-N-Out for lunch.
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Tonight I’m headed over to the Nuart theater to see their weekly showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, a cult classic. I’ve heard it’s tons of fun, and a really campy experience. They host it every single Saturday at midnight, and I could not be more excited to do the Time Warp again!
This list isn’t the most extensive, see everything LA has to offer guide, but instead should give you all a picture of what an average week can be like in Los Angeles. As a bonus, everything on this list was free with a little bit of luck. But honestly, my best advice would be to come out and see for yourself!
