I haven’t been posting for a while because I’ve been preparing for my trip to LA for Vivica Fox’s bday!!!
It was a fab event and I’m bizzack!!! FYI she is probably, hands down, one of THE nicest and down to earth celebs of all time! Just wanted to throw that in there. The rest of the celeb party guests were pretty cool and down to earth too…
I don’t really have any pics other than the one I just had to take of Pimp Don Magic Juan! I used to run home after school and watch Jenny Jones. Ha! He and Rude Jude were always guests on the show. Anywho, I was tryna be too cool for school and didn’t want to take any pics looking like a straight up fan. Unfortunately, my co-worker needed to take a MILLION pics for her dang Instagram and asked me to be her lackey photographer. SMH. So I ended up looking like a damn fan anyway…
I was so excited to go but I HATE traveling! It’s just a damn headache and I don’t adjust to change very well…but it was a chance of a lifetime to rub elbows with Hollywood AND little ole’ me got a personal invite so I had to go!!!
I figured, something big is going to happen! This could lead to a big break…something! Something to rescue from my mundane life here in wack ass Philadelphia where everything seems to be so stagnant. Argh!!!!! Anywho, I kept recalling stories of celebrities that moved to L.A. and magic happened. Poof! Just like that!!
Now being THE MOST frugal person in the world (unless it has to do with food or booze) I said to myself, if it’s meant for me to go, God will get me there. Even though I’m pretty convinced he’s forgotten about me, somehow he got me there. I mean, really got me there! I lucked up and got a buddy pass for the flight just four days before I was supposed to leave (I was NOT tryna pay $700 for a flight with a damn lay-over) but then lucked OUT when I got bumped off of two damn flights!! I said to myself, I’m going back home if I don’t get on the 2 o’clock flight, yup I’m taking my black ass back home!! How ’bout someone offered to buy my ticket, a stewardess offered to give up her seat AND someone didn’t show up for their flight ALL AT THE SAME DAMN TIME. Literally, at 1:45…so I’m thinking, there has GOT to be a reason for me to be in LA; especially since a day prior I was thinking about cancelling my trip because I didn’t want to share a room with a group of girls going. As soon as the thought popped in my head, someone paid for my hotel stay so that I could have a room all to myself. (I’ve got some pretty generous and thoughtful homies ‘eh?)
Something EPIC just had to happen right!?!!! With everything aligning so well I just felt that THIS WAS IT…a fairy godmother was gonna show up and show tha’ fuck out and opportunity would present itself…
Nope. At least not yet…it’s odd…I have this belief that every single thing happens for a reason. Like that movie ‘The Adjustment Principle’. Everything that happens is supposed to connect the dots. I’m wondering if this L.A. trip was a puzzle piece to some awesome ass picture that I’ve been trying to wait patiently to see!
I’ve really been racking my brain over this…it was more than a party. Had to be! Although I had a BLAST and was absolutely honored to be among the list of invitees, I was hoping I’d have and amazing story to tell when I got back…I DID have any interesting convo during the dinner portion of the party with someone sitting across from me. I was talking about how I’m trying to move and that I need to be more than some corporate worker bee! I mentioned my blog and how I’m gaining followers and viewers daily. Then he mentions writing a screenplay…hmmm….
Maybe I was meant to go to L.A. just to have that SPECIFIC conversation. Could I be the next Shonda Rhimes? LMAO. Who knows! But I have to do something!!!! In addition to telling me I need to write a screenplay and send it to every producers whose address I can get my hands on, he said something very important…that I need to be aggressive and that no one is out there looking for me to give me an opportunity, I need to be looking for them!
I think he’s right…I need to do SOMETHING…but what?
