Tie on The Beach

You might have already noticed that I like pretty much anything that interrupts the day and brings some fun. That’s why I usually love all the scenes caused by ImprovEverywhere!

The last one was a reproduction of “Black Tie on the Beach”. The title is self-explanatory: a day spent on the beach, doing things you do on the beach, but wearing Black Tie:

Wishing Tree at Little Tokyo

One thing that I loved about NYC and now, Los Angeles, is that they have a series of cities inside the major city. You’re walking around and suddenly you’re transported to a completely different reality and culture.

This weekend we had some cravings for noodles, so naturally, we ended up at Little Tokyo. While we were waiting for seats on the restaurant where I probably had one of the best Ramens of my life, I noticed this Tree and instantaneously liked it:

Spreading smiles!

I’ve been in LA for a little bit more than one month now and I feel it is still soon to start with all the comparisons to NY. But… there’s one thing that I couldn’t not notice: People here DO smile to each other! True Fact!

It is not only normal to smile to strangers here, but they don’t avoid eye contact either! It’s really fantastic! I’ve even been practicing walking always with at least a half smile on my face, because it makes it much easier to turn on a full smile, anytime I need it! And it’s usually often!

I miss my bike

I miss my bike! There was no way I could have brought her here, to L.A., but I can’t stop imagining how is she, in that dark and cold storage among other stranger bikes.

From L.A, with love

It’s good to see that you’re still here!
Last post was to say that I had graduated, this post is to say that I got a job! : )

I moved to L.A and even though I’m not doing interventions so often anymore, I’m working at a company that definitely makes people happy. At least I was a much happier child just because of them, and they were partially responsible for me being this person that believes in magic and in dreams becoming true!
