Santa Clarita is nowhere near the LA action. IMO, it’s a god awful dessert town.

Try looking at Zeus, and if you're lucky you can catch them when they're running big promotions. Not the cheapest, but nice corporate apartments for fair prices.

Guessing this is with Princess Cruises. The best part of LA (west LA) is too far from Santa Clarita. You could do Pasadena, but it’s not that great. Compromise is downtown LA, but still a long commute (albeit against traffic).

summer... thoughts? Is LA a fun place to spend a summer? (Alternative would be NYC, which I’m less excited about)

Why not find a roommate

Sherman Oaks, and internship programs usually do a good job of linking you up with a network of people (other interns) since they want you to enjoy working there and come back full time.

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
