Mamita Mala – NYRican in LA NPIC Temp Boss Lady Edition

I was having lunch with my administrator at Phillipe’s after a meeting with a potential funder. She asked me how long did take for me to get used to Los Angeles after moving from nearly three years ago from New York City. I had to admit that it wasn’t until I started working at my current gig that I felt I had something that was my own, something that didn’t belong to my partner, who was a born and bred Angeleno. When I asked why she asked, she said she noticed I seemed comfortable. I hope not too much, I told her.

And here I am in Los Angeles, comfortably uncomfortable in a position I never imagined myself in.

I’m enjoying the adventure (even when it’s painful). I hope you enjoy it with me.
