I left and I came back in 4 months. Take a break, then decide. But don’t make final decisions now. Also, LA sucks.

@SD1 -- commute is wack, smells like trash, the food is no good, shits wild expensive, can't comfortably drive anywhere, everyone loves whiskey (wtf), everything is too fucking small, is anything clean?, The business people are shitty, the landlords are shitty, if someone is being nice it's probably a scam, I personally hate the architecture, something is always taking a million years and a billion dollars to be built, TAXES WTF, and PROPERTY TAXES WTF, traveling 1 mile takes 5-10 minutes, the beaches are trash, there's a 50/50 chance your Uber driver doesn't even know English, LaGuardia smells and looks like ass, the locals are typically an eyesore, all the artsy shit is mainly pretentious ego trip, and I can't find a good biscuit to save my life.

Tell me your craziest experience working with a TV network. Here comes mine:

I'm American, but my family is mostly Colombian. I was told my aunt and cousins would come here for 2 weeks. I discovered they were going to be paid to appear in a famous Hispanic TV show, where a "judge" receives a case, hears the plaintiffs and defendants and renders a verdict. But of course, it's all fake and payed 😂 turns out she wanted me to go there (even though I don't work for that TV network) so she's sure she'll be paid at the end of the show. Wth did I just do.
