Okay, so I feel so dumb right now. California is so not what I conjured in my mind. Let me be correct here, I cannot speak for Cali as a whole but Southern Cali specifically; is not what is advertise on television, magazines, or books. Not to offend anyone from Cali, but the people here that I have met are so plastic. Plastic meaning fake, no dimensions, and the list goes on. Wait, let me clean that up a little bit. I met a group of fantastic girls, but guess what none of them are from Cali (also none of my blogger friends are being referenced in this here post).

I have always been under the impression that California was a bigger New York. I guess that what you get for assuming. California has no culture to speak of, unless we are talking about Hispanic culture. Speaking of the aforementioned, SoCal is predominately Hispanic. I have no problem with this at all, but I thought it would be one big melting pot. I am west indian, so I feel lost, one could say out of place even.

Let talk jobs, where are they??? I am still looking. Even when it comes to my makeup artistry business; no one wants to help you out because of their insecurities. Like I am going to come on the scene and steal all their clients; someone had to help them in the beginning. I am a firm believer in paying it forward but not everyone follows this code.

Anywhoo, I know that this post was all over the place but I am just purging my mind. Bear with me, I think it will get better (just joking, yet I am so serious).
