I have something(s) super exciting (blog posts, videos, etc) coming up so expect to see more than the weekly β€˜I searched for jobs and had a fun weekend with my best friend’ blogs and vlogs. As for this week? You guessed it, a job interview, the job hunt continued and I had a super relaxing weekend with Alyssa. Continue reading “LA week 6 // sword play”
