Emma prefers to share her thoughts with a microphone rather than a physical human being, so thank god she has a podcast. Recorded from the comfort of her bed, Emma talks at length about whatever is on her mind every week. Anything really does go on this podcast. Sometimes philosophy, sometimes a random story from 10 years ago, sometimes advice, and sometimes nothing at all. You never know what you are going to get, but that’s what keeps it interesting. New episodes every Thursday.

Living in Los Angeles can be... interesting. Most people outside the city think of beautiful beaches and lavish celebrity mansions in the hills. And they do exist. But for those that live in the city, your view of it can be a bit different. Emma's lived in LA for a few years now, and has had her fare share of experiences. Everything from crazy people at fast food restaurants to what it's really like at those big parties. And she's STILL not over what someone did in her bathroom...

Why am I so awkward in the beginning of these? I don't know how the **** to start a podcast episode. It's OK. So what's going on? What's going on? Let's think before I get into the episode while my lips are really chapped right now. They're like really chapped to the point where like. I'm getting like a. Like I'm have like a dead skin ring around my mouth. That's super, really. It's super unflattering, really. Actually quite ugly. So that's happening. But on the brighter side of that, the reason why my lips are chapped is because I'm on Accutane my acne medicine. But good news is I'm on my last month. Umm. It's been a journey. If you guys want me to make an episode about Accutane, I don't know if I really could talk about it for that long, so maybe I won't. Maybe I'll just throw it into an episode and just talk about it one time, just because. I mean, if you guys are interested in it and you want my experience and whatever, I would love to talk about it, even just about acne in general. Umm, I could. I would love to speak on that, so if you guys want me to at some point. Maybe I will. But Accutane has been tough because the side effects are ****** but like my skin looks. Better than it's ever looked. And I'm really excited about it. So hopefully the medication works long term and I don't ever have to go on it again. And then I just never have acne again and all of my pain from being on the medication will be worth it. And then I will have clear skin forever and it will be amazing. Time will tell. Anyway, let's get into this episode. So. This episode was actually inspired by something that happened to me. Yesterday, Speaking of Accutane, I had to go pick up my prescription from CVS, so I drove my *** over to the CVS. And I went in and I got my prescription and then I was. Walking out of the CVS onto the street. And. I see this man running through the crosswalk. Like, sprinting through the crosswalk and I was like, OK, that's different. He wasn't wearing workout clothes. This man was not exercising. He was just sprinting. It was he was kind of charging towards me, which kind of freaked me out, so I kind of backed up a little bit and I let him Sprint or whatever and then. Once you got to the sidewalk, he started walking normally. And there was a man, another man standing at a bus stop and he had one of his feet on a skateboard and he was just chilling there waiting for the bus. And this man's the sprinting man, as we'll call him, the guy who's sprinting across the street. Kicks this man's skateboard out from under his foot. And they're both like grown men, like one was probably 30 and the other one was probably 50 maybe. And the dude with the skateboard was like, dude, what? What the ****? What was that? And then the sprinting dude just starts screaming in his face. Nothing of what he was saying made any sense. And so skateboard dude picks up his skateboard and I kid you not. Starts hitting the other dude over the head with his skateboard, whacking him in the head with this skateboard. Then the runnings, the sprinting dude starts throwing punches at. The student is trying to get the dude onto the floor. Mind you, skateboard dude is not giving up for a second. He's just whacking this sprinting man with the skateboard, just as if it was the most insane thing I've ever seen. Mind you, I'm standing 5 feet away from this. I quickly turn around and I go back up the steps to go back into the CVS because obviously I don't feel safe being near that, although I also kind of weirdly was enjoying it. It was weirdly, it was obviously really kind of upsetting, but there was something super entertaining about it. It was like watching, you know, the Logan, Paul KSI fight, but like in real life and I like, couldn't get enough. So I, you know, I didn't. I stood kind of in the doorway of the CVS and I watched this all go down and this old man. Was walking into the CVS and I was like, check this out, like, what's going on? He was like, I don't know. And I was like. This is crazy. And he was like, I don't know what to say. And I was like, OK, I'm sorry, I shouldn't have brought it up. And then let the man go into the CVS and. And that was kind of the end of it, but. **** like this happens in LA. Way too much. **** that just like. Cracks the matrix like the norm in LA is like matrix breaking **** like. I was almost so unfazed by it that that's why it was like disturbing. I was like, it was so normal for me. Like, **** like that just happens all the time here. It's always like that. Like, just **** that, like should not be happening happens in LA on a daily basis, and I'm used to it. So today's episode is going to be me telling you my stories about LA that kind of break the matrix. Some of it, some of these things are things that I've done. Some of these things are things that I've seen. But altogether, it's going to be just a big. Cluster of weird stories. I actually hate the word cluster, and the fact that I just used it was character development because I really hate that word, so I can't believe that I just used it. Anyway, let's get into it. This is actually the best story I have. I told this to somebody last night and I literally and I like relived it in my head and I like could not believe that the story actually happened. My friends and I like to drive around. Late at night on Sunset Blvd, we just like do loops around Sunset Blvd and talk just because it's so nice to just drive around with no cars around and it's just it's really great. So. We'll do that for hours. And one night Olivia and I were doing that and our throats got really dry, so we decided to stop at Wendy's to get some water bottles because we needed water, but we didn't want to go home yet, so we were like, OK, we'll just do that. So I pull up to the little drive-thru intercom box and you know, I'm ordering my waters. And in my rearview window, I kind of see. An old woman. Not that old. Like maybe like 5560, just kind of lingering behind my car and I was like, OK, it's kind of weird, but I'm just gonna act like I don't see it and just move on. I take my focus off of her and I just continue speaking to the Wendy's employee. And all of a sudden. This woman. Like, this is not a ******* joke. This is not a joke. I can't believe that this happened and none of you are gonna believe me because it's that ******* insane. This woman runs up to my open window and spits in my face and starts screaming at me. I kid you not. And this was right when the whole kind of coronavirus thing started. I'm freaking out. I'm so scared for one. Like Super startled, super freaked out. She was being kind of belligerent a little bit. I roll up my window. I take the hand sanitizer out of my. A little cup holder and I literally rub hand sanitizer all over my face, which is not good. Don't do that. But I literally was so grossed out and so terrified. That was the only thing I knew how to do. I'm freaking out. We're literally like, what the **** do we do? We still have to get our water bottles. Because we're thirsty, so we're like, this woman has to leave. So we pull up to the to the pickup window and we wait there with our window rolled up. She kind of minds her own business. She kind of walks away. Oh my God, I forgot about this part of the story. She kind of walks away. So we're like, OK, we're good. So I rolled down my window to get the water bottles and pay and then this woman. Walk us around my car. To the passenger window where Olivia sitting, Olivia's windows rolled up and she's talking to Olivia. Through the window, like screaming at Olivia. Through the window. Olivia is like looking at me, like, what do I do? I'm like, I don't know, just act like you don't see it. I don't know, I. Get the waters. And then I'm going to hand over my card and this woman runs around. To my window again, while my window is rolled down, I have to roll it up. That Wendy's employee acts like nothing is going on. I cracked the window and I'm like, I can't give you my card. This woman could take my card. And he was like, no, just hand it around. I'm like, no, no, I can't. I can't. I don't wanna do that. Like, I don't. I'm scared. I was so scared. Finally, I give this man my card around her. I reach around her and she's screaming at me. I can't believe that this happened. And I give him my card. And then I roll back up my window. The transaction gets completed. She walks away because my windows rolled up, so she kind of gave up. I get my card back and I drive away. And Olivia, yeah, Olivia and I drive away, and we just. We almost wanted to start crying. Because it was such a traumatizing experience. That, like, I couldn't even fathom that it happened. Like the whole thing, it was just. There's no words for it. There's no words for that. OK, so I've told you guys about circle before, right? Spelled CIRKUL. Circle was created for people like me, OK, who don't drink enough water every day circles basically this water bottle with over 40 flavor cartridges that makes drinking water way more tasty. The flavors cover all the bases. They have fruit, punches, iced teas. Some even have caffeine or electrolytes, but there's no sugar, there's no calories, and there's no artificial flavors. My favorite flavor is strawberry Kiwi. And my favorite thing about it is I love how the dial on the cartridge lets you choose how much flavor you get per sip. All you have to do is twist the dial to a certain number for how much flavor that you want and you're ready to go. So the cool thing about it is that you can put the cartridge on. And you can set it to whatever setting you want. So you could set it to a setting where when you take a sip of water, it just tastes like water, so there's no flavor added. But if you're in the mood to add some flavor, you can twist it a little bit. And then you have a super flavorful sip. Right now Circle is giving all of my listeners. Up to 35% off their order, plus free shipping on all orders of $15 or more. Plus, as an added bonus, we're throwing in my favorite flavor, strawberry Kiwi, for free. Just visit drink circom Emma.

One morning. I had pulled an all nighter. And. That's never good, OK? Pulling all nighters is like a great way to like, lose your mind a little bit and just be really, really irrational and emotional. It just makes your mind go. It's not healthy, right? So. I pulled an all nighter. And. In the morning. I was really upset about something. I won't get into what I was upset about, but I was having some issues with some friends and I was really upset about it. And so I called my parents. And. I got so upset that I was like, I need to talk to you while I'm going on a walk. I'm gonna go on a walk. I lived in Hollywood Blvd. I lived on Hollywood Blvd. Still. So I went on a walk on Hollywood Blvd, which is not fun, but I did it. And I'm just walking up and down the street. And. I start walking up a side street. And I sit down on like kind of a staircase. And. I'm on the phone and I'm venting and I start getting so heated and angry about what I was talking about that I start bawling my eyes out. Like bawling my eyes out like I just freaked out. It was because of the lack of sleep for me. I think I just ******* lost it. I was. Scream crying on the phone with my parents. So angry. And my throat got really dry from crying and kind of hyperventilating, so I start coughing in public. In fully in public, on a side street, people were walking, they were passing me. I didn't even care. I was so upset and I'm just ******* crying. I'm coughing the whole thing. And I start coughing and I cough so hard. That I throw up. On the street. People are around, OK? People are walking up and down. This is a popular side street. To be exact, it's actually Argyle, which is off Hollywood Blvd, a very populated St and I ******* throw up. People see it happen. I'm not even embarrassed. I was so upset about the thing that I was like, angry about. I didn't even care. But I threw up in front of everybody and it was so great. I've never thrown up from crying. It was the craziest thing that's ever happened to me. I don't think it's ever gonna happen again because I haven't pulled an all nighter and like literally six months and, like, I don't plan on doing it anytime soon, so. So that's that. I do kind of miss pulling all nighters. Not to be off topic, but I do miss pulling all nighters a little bit. That was kind of a fun and fond memory, but. As you can see, it's effects on me. Mentally we're not the best. Sorry, I burped. So that was that story. That was ******* weird. I have a bunch of stories written down, but some of them I feel like aren't that good. Some of these also don't necessarily relate. To like it's not like. In LA story, it's more just like a crazy story that happened to me in LA, but it could have happened anywhere. But, like, maybe I'll get into it anyway. We'll see. I'm I'm picking through, OK? Next one. This one's kind of crazy. This happened like over a year ago so. My best friends and I went. To San Francisco. We did a road trip to San Francisco. And on the way back. When we were driving back, it was kind of late at night. And we were all starving. Like, so hungry. We hadn't eaten in six hours because we were in the car and forgot to bring snacks, so we were super hungry. So we're like, let's get food right now. Let's go to Mel's Diner, which is a diner. Obviously it ******* says in the name for. God's sake. Anyway, it's a diner. It's pretty self-explanatory, so we decide we're going to go to the diner and so we start driving there. Olivia's driving, my friend Olivia's driving. And we started to see this guy drive a little bit. Reckless, kind of just switching lanes, like not being responsible. Whatever. And. All of a sudden. He's like maybe one car in front of us. He swerves hard to the right. Cuts in front of three cars and hits the cement barrier in the center of the freeway. After doing that he over corrects. And he cuts across like 4 cars. And he hits the barrier on the right side, if that makes sense. So he, like, did like a. A. Not an S, but like maybe kind of a seven. He hits the cement thing on the left and then he goes and he hits the cement thing on the right. And. Because of that. Two other cars crash. Into each other. So everybody pulls over. Olivia, Amanda and I pull over because we want to make sure everybody's OK. Everybody was totally fine, which was. It absolute blessing. There was some pretty bad damage on the cars, but we got everybody out of the, everybody got out of the car safely, and then everything was OK and it was more a matter of, like, figuring out how to handle this, like, legally, like, you know, who's responsible for this? Who's insurance do we need? Whatever. Olivia's car didn't get damaged at all, so we were just kind of there. Help if anybody needed it. And the guy who was swerving in the car? Starts acting really weird. He starts acting really weird. He's like. Being like, no, we don't need to call the police. Like, we don't need to call the police. Everything's fine. Don't worry about this. I'm gonna go check out my car. I'm gonna go check out my car. And everybody was like, no, dude, don't go to your car. Like, your car is severely damaged and it could blow up or, like, explode if you touch it or do anything to it. Like, don't touch your car. Let a professional handle that. That's not safe. He's like, no, no, no, no, no. I'm going to let I need to go get something from my car. Everybody's like, no, don't get into your car. Like, that's not safe. This man was like. Starts getting really violent and loud and he's like, no, it's none of your business. Like, whatever. This man gets into his car, fully totaled. Back end of this car, front end of this car. Totally ****** **. Like pieces are falling off. Crushed car, OK, he gets into the car and he starts driving away. From the scene, because I mean, he had just caused a massive accident, right? For not only himself, but also all of them, so like. This man's freaking out. He starts driving away. Olivia and I had gotten out of the car, Amanda had stayed in the car, and Olivia and I were like, we need to call the police. Like, this is really bad. Like this man did something ****** **. Not even like it was his. I don't know if it was his fault, but regardless, like he caused an accident that has damaged 2 people's cars and he needs to be held responsible, Olivia and I call the police. We get back into the car, we brought back to our car. And we're on the phone with the police and we're following this man. Trying to take a photo of his license plate. He takes an exit. We follow him. Not condoning that. Probably not the best thing to do. We asked the police were like, is it OK if we follow him so that we can give you information? They were like, yes. This was the moment that I felt like I was a part of the police force. I felt so ****** that a cop was like, yes, you can follow them if you want, just be safe about it so that you know, you can tell us where they are. We follow this car for like 10 minutes and they're driving so recklessly, so we had to stay back and then they'd start driving normally, mind you, as they're driving. Pieces of their car are like dragging. There's sparks flying off of their car like it was a ******* mess. Anyway. Finally, the cops find him. We're on the phone giving them sides were like, literally, we're driving so fast. We're like, OK, they're they're on Ventura and ******* this street. No, they're on this street now. They're on this street now, like trying to keep the cops updated. Finally they pull him over. We see them, put them in cuffs. And we give the police our phone number. Whatever. And then that was the end of it. Come to find out. This man had stolen that car. And he was a thief. And he crashed the car and it was really scary. But it was kind of like really exhilarating. Moral of that story? Glad everybody's OK. But I'm not gonna lie. That car chase made me feel *** ***. I can't lie to you. I don't know if that's ****** **. I don't know if that's like, wrong to say or wrong to feel. But it did kind of make me feel ******. Moving on, that one's kind of crazy.

This next story happened to me at LAX, and this story is not really like crazy. Like, it's not crazy, but it was more just like. I just find it kind of amusing, so **** it. So I was flying to Europe. And. I believe I was by myself. Doesn't really matter anyway, flying to Europe and. I get onto the plane. And I'm putting my carry ONS into the overhead compartment. And I'm trying to shove this bag in a certain way. I was struggling to get one of my carry ONS into the into the. Into the bin above. And a flight attendant comes up to me and is like, honey, honey, honey, honey. It it won't fit like that. It will not fit like that. It doesn't work like that. It will not fit like that. Terrible attitude. Complete *****. Totally rude. I was like, sorry, ma'am. She was like, let me just do it. Let me just do it. And I was like, OK, OK. Thank you. So rude, Super bad attitude. Everybody around her literally looked over and was like, what? Like why is this? Why is this grown woman yelling at this 12 year old girl? Obviously little do they know that I am in fact an 18 year old woman. But you know, to the to the onlookers it looked like somebody was yelling at a child. So that probably looked worse on her part. So that was really rude and I was just like, it kind of put me in a bad mood for a second cause I was like, why do people have to talk to people like that? Like, that's just so ****** **. I got over it, whatever. So it was time for her to start giving out drinks she was giving people. Champagne or orange juice? So I was like, I'll take the orange juice. Thank you. And she was holding a tray with a bunch of drinks on it. And. She was like, OK. Still had an attitude with me. Have no idea what I did wrong. She doesn't even know me like that. And so. She's holding the tray with one hand and she's getting a napkin. Out of her other her. Out of her like little pocket. Her little apron pocket to put down onto my tray. And as she's kind of reaching down to get out. The napkin for me. She spills. All of the drinks. On me. Right before a 10 hour flight. Orange juice. Champagne. All over me, all over my seat, all over my bag. Everything. And when I tell you. That this woman's attitude changed towards me. All of a sudden she's like, Oh my God, I'm so sorry. Oh my God, I'm so sorry. You are so sweet for putting up with this. Oh my God, I'm so sorry. Ohh, this has never happened. My God, do you need anything? Oh, let me wipe up your seat. Let me wipe off your bag. But when I tell you that I was livid. Livid. This woman had been literally targeting me and bullying me for the past 20 minutes. And then. Spills all of the drinks on me. And then all of a sudden is an Angel, because whatever, where was that energy before you had to fully ruin my entire flight? In order to not be a ******* ***** to me. Unbelievable. I was so ******* mad and the whole flight I was sticky. Every time I would move my *** was sticking to the seat. My *******. I mean, obviously completely doesn't matter. Like it was not that big of a deal, but it sucked, you know what I mean? It sucked. And she was such a ***** anyway. I just wanted to get that off my chest. I couldn't believe that. Like, anyway, I reported her to delta. I literally called my mom and I was like, please report this woman. Like, I ******* hate her. I hate her and I don't use hate a lot. Actually, I do. But like, I don't use hate in a serious way a lot. But I genuinely hate that woman. But you know what? I forgive her because I feel bad for her. That she sucks that bad. Moving on. Last story I'm going to tell. This is not really a story that, like this happened to me when I was living in LA, but it's not something that's like specific to LA. Similar to like the LAX story, like that could have happened at any airport, but like, it happened here, so we're going to tell it. It's actually really short. Basically. I don't have a lot of people come over to my house. Very limited quantities. I don't really let a lot of people come over. Because I don't like hanging out with a lot of people, OK? Which is what makes this story weird. So I had a guest bathroom in my old apartment that I kept a litter box in, and the only time I'd ever go in there would be. To clean the litter box. No. That bathroom. Had started to smell. And I didn't really know why. I couldn't. Pinpoint why? Cause like, well nobody uses this toilet in this bathroom. It's like, what could it be? And I thought it was maybe just the cat **** but it kind of smelled like human **** which was why there was a problem here. And so. I wish the story. Ended up being that like somebody chat in my litter box. I think that would have been more funny. But no, it's different. I decided to investigate a little bit. I lift up the toilet seat. And I see a massive amount of toilet paper. Massive like. Volcano going out of the ******* water in the toilet like massive. Toilet paper mound and I'm like. What? And I was like, maybe my cats did that because my cats love to play with toilet paper. So. I just assume that's maybe what it was. Well. I flushed the toilet. In. How do I put this? And ****. Starts rising up in the bowl. Somebody had clogged my toilet. God knows when. I have no idea when I don't use that bathroom. Somebody clogged my toilet, God knows when. Tried to cover it up with toilet paper like they're a ******* cat. And then left it there for me. Oh my God, I couldn't believe it. And to this day I don't know exactly who did it. I have a few ideas. But I will never know for sure. This is some advice for you. If you're listening to this, if you ever clog somebody's toilet. They're gonna find that **** anyway, and they're probably gonna figure out it was you. So my recommendation is ask them for a ******* plunger. Hey, dude, I clogged your ******* toilet. Give me a plunger. That easy? It's actually less awkward that way. How clown emoji does it look if you leave a ******* **** in somebody's toilet that you know it's not like, OK, I get it. If you're at a restaurant and there's no plunger and like, you clogged the toilet, do what you have to do. I get it. But at someone's house? What the ****? And it was. And they knew that they clogged it. They knew that they closed it because they put ******* toilet paper over top of it, which then caused a larger problem for me, because then I had to spend 3 days trying to unclog this toilet. I almost had to call a ******* plumber because there was so much toilet paper trying to cover this ******* monster **** that I then had to ******* everyday work on it a little bit more and get more down the ******* drain. Because literally there was three rolls of ******* toilet paper in the toilet bowl and it was. Sorry, that was a lot. That was a lot. Uh, anyway, so that story was ******* insane. I really if you did this. Text me. Actually, don't ******* text me cause I'm ******. Unless, like, maybe it was a prank. Like I hope it was. My God. God. OK, so if I were to host a live radio show and I could play any music I wanted, I would honestly probably have the time of my Life OK, but I'll admit I would probably end up playing. Just sad music. I don't know what it is about me, but I love sad music, OK? And so I'd probably end up playing. A lot of sad music. Specifically for the people who are listening in the car by themselves. That want to shed a tear in a good way? Well now there is a place that I or you or anyone can host a live show. Amp is the platform that allows people to come together and create live, unfiltered radio shows with whatever music or content that they love. And this is like a real show where you can have people listening live and you can pick exactly which songs to play, and you can even have fans calling in to chat while you're on air. If I had a live show, I would definitely. Have people call in and ask me for dating advice honestly, so I think I'd have to do dating advice. You know, this actually sounds like the perfect radio show. Sad music combined with dating advice. Because all of the shows on AMP are run by real people, you can tell that the playlists are authentic. A playlist generated automatically just sounds different than one that an individual is controlling based on their passions and tastes. And with 10s of millions of licensed songs to choose from, everyone will find the music that appeals to them. But it's not just music. You can have a talk show. Or react to news, or riff on pop culture. And that's one of the best parts about being a podcast host. You can just riff. On whatever. Excites your mind on any given day. So download AMP today in the App Store that's a amp, or ask Alexa to play amp. I'm gonna start answering some questions. I asked for questions about LA like crazy **** about LA. Uh, so these are going to be a little bit different. These are as much stories, but I thought I'd answer some anyway. Somebody said. Have you ever been around problematic people? Absolutely. Absolutely. All the time. And it's very unsettling because it's like. You can kind of tell when somebody's. Figuring **** out and there maybe being a little bit of a problem. And it's scary because. You can't trust them, so you have no idea like. What they're capable of because they're not trustworthy. And that ***** terrifying and I hate it. Next, have you met your idol? I don't really have an idol, but I've met a few people that I've kind of fangirled over. At Coachella last year. I was at the bathroom area and all of a sudden out comes Mac DeMarco. And I almost **** myself another one. The first idol I ever met was actually I really idolized and still to this day do Cody Coco always loved that man and just appreciated him so much. And so and his girlfriend Kelsey as well actually. And one of the first times I met like another. YouTube or somebody that I admired. That was like the first time I met somebody I admired like that. And it was Cody. And his girlfriend. And I was so nervous. Like sweating bullets. Like so scared. And they were just so ******* cool. And I've been friends with them ever since, and so that was really amazing. That was like a really amazing moment. Like I that was like, probably the first time I met somebody that, like, I totally fangirled over. And it will always hold a special place in my heart. Somebody asked have you ever been to a party and you didn't know the person who hosted it? I do not party a lot, but that has happened. Before it's on the type of person that, like, shows up to a party. Like maybe like every few months. Just cause I'm like, **** it, you know what I mean? Let me maybe I'll live a little bit and, like, go see what it's all about. And then I leave after an hour and I go to a dinner with my friends, and then I'm eat and then I go to bed. I wish I enjoyed it more though I because I don't see a problem with enjoying it. I don't I think that being social and. You know, at this age it's like so normal to. Go and be social and go to parties. And I mean as long as you're being safe and responsible and. Not doing anything stupid, I don't see a problem with it. But it's just like. It's just not really as fun as. It's just never as fun as it should be. Like, I remember like two years on Halloween, two years ago on Halloween, I got invited to a few Halloween parties and I was like, you know what? **** it, I'll go. To a few and like it was just so miserable. Like, it's awkward because I I know it's like with these types of LAN parties, you know, everybody in the room, but like nobody wants to talk to each other and then everybody acts like they don't know each other. And like every once in a while you'll meet somebody cool who's like, you know? Down to earth and like wants to just meet new people and whatever, but like, that's just not normally how it is. And I feel like the whole point of being social and like going to a party is to, like, meet new people and, like, enjoy strangers company. But in LA nobody wants to talk to one another. So then it's kind of like you're at a party, but everybody's just sitting in their own corner and like, I don't see the point of that because that just defeats the entire purpose of a party. That's my two cents. Somebody said I want to move to LA in two years, but people keep telling me it's a bad decision. I still want to do it. Do you think they're right, or is LA still a nice place to live? I think if you want to ******* live in LA, live in LA, I don't see a. A reason I mean. Like, worst case scenario, you move here and you don't like it. But The thing is, I think that there's a lot of beauty in it and there's a lot of opportunities here and, you know, there's a lot of great nature. I mean, like, we have *******. Amazing beaches. **** like that. Like a bunch of fun **** to do. I mean, there are the cons, but I also think that, like, it's what you make of it. And if you want to live here, follow your damn dreams and do it. **** it. Somebody said, do paparazzi make you uncomfortable or have you ever had a weird experience with one of them? Oh my God. Well, I don't get paparazzi for one. I I just don't. That's not that just doesn't happen. But like there are the certain type of YouTube channels that. Are kind of like a paparazzi. In a sense, where they like, come up to you and film you randomly and like, ask you questions. And you just didn't even and like you don't know how to act although. I have a conspiracy that most of those are staged, although the few times that it's happened to me. I had no idea that it was gonna happen and it was very upsetting. So maybe they're not staged, or maybe it's like both. Maybe some of them are staged and some of them aren't. I'm not completely sure. I've just seen some that seemed so obviously staged to me. So, like, I just have no idea how that works and it's not. I don't know. I'm never going to know. I really don't appreciate those those things. Umm. I think that like if somebody came up to me with a camera without. My consent. And was like. Hey, like what are you working on? Like, hey, how are you doing you know? Hey like what do you think about this? Uh. What? What are your plans for the future like something like constructive and positive? I would. Appreciate. I wouldn't. I wouldn't. I would still be uncomfortable by it. But like, it wouldn't **** me off. But the few experiences I've had with. I guess we'll call paparazzi, even though I don't think that's what it is. It's always asking me about things that I don't want to talk about and that I won't ever talk about and like things that are just so, like disrespectful to bring up. And I know that it's like, whatever, like they can do what they want and like, I just don't have to answer it if I don't want to, but I just still think it's it just is kind of lame, you know? That like. They're asking me about, like, my relationships and **** like that and like, that just sucks. Because it's like, I don't ******* wanna talk about that anyway. I don't wanna talk about that anyway, and my day-to-day and definitely not on the ******* Internet, so shut up. Anyways, he. Actually, I mean those are things I do talk about on my day-to-day as long as they're going well, so. Somebody said. Do you see a lot of famous people on the street? No. Not like on the street, but actually. Like I feel like. It's not like you are just walking down the street and you like see somebody. I mean, actually. It happens, but like I don't even have an exact example. Like, I feel like it's more about when you're in LA, it's really easy to find the events that these people are at, like. You know, Coachella certain events like or parties. That you know you can go to when you live here because they're available, whatever. Those are kind of the places that I feel like you would see those people. But. It just kind of becomes like normal and not weird anymore because you just kind of realize that, oh, that's just. What it is? And this party sucks and I'm going home and that's the end of it. Somebody said, do you think LA is overrated? Uh. I don't think it's overrated, just cause I think it's kind of necessary like. It's necessary that it exists in a sense, like it's really useful for certain jobs and passions, and I think that that's really important. And I. I think that the parts of LA. Like, there are parts of LA that are overrated and parts that are underrated. It's overrated. And like, the things that everybody thinks are cool about LA, I think are overrated, like ******* Hollywood Blvd or like Melrose or like all of those types of things like the Grove, like, I don't even. These are like things that people talk like those things are overrated, but like. You know how close you are to the beach? You know how many opportunities there are here, all of those things. Those are underrated. I don't think that that's talked about enough. I think everybody's talking about, like, the stupid ****. I don't know. Everybody's asking me about parties. So, he said. Do you get invited to crazy parties? Listen. No, like, not really. I like literally every time I've ever been invited to a party I've like barely ever got, like, I've shown up to so many parties and been like, you know what? Tonight's the night. I'm gonna be social. I'm gonna let go. I'm gonna have fun. I'm gonna just do tick tock dances on the dance floor. **** it. Let's go. Let's have fun. Let's bring out the girls. Let's do this ****. The girl's not meaning my *****. I mean, like my friends. Because I don't have any of those, so yeah, anyway, but. It's either. I get in there and I'm bored. Or I get in there and. Like, I don't really know anybody and nobody wants to talk, so then it's just awkward and like, whatever or. I don't even get it in the 1st place with like bigger parties and ****. Like half the time. Like they don't even let anyone in. Like it ends up bloodline ends up being too long, and then it's like nobody gets in and then it's not fun because I can't. Yeah, I don't know. It sucks. It's not fun. Somebody said what smell reminds you of LA? What smell reminds you of LA? I don't know why, but every time I smell weed I'm like OMG LMAO. That's so funny. Probably the smell of garbage. Like just like rotting trash. Maybe urine. Like warm, hot, burning urine on asphalt. That's LA smell for me. Somebody's in other earthquakes as bad as everybody makes them out to be. I actually experienced an earthquake a few weeks ago was pretty crazy. Yeah, it was. It was my mom and I were. My mom was visiting to help me move, and then we were sitting in her room late at night talking. And all of a sudden like. I started hearing like the glass in my house like vibrating and I was like. What? And I thought somebody was breaking into my house. But then we realized it was an earthquake and it wasn't that scary. I mean, I've grown up in California. I've always experienced. The occasional earthquake I've actually never experienced like a really crazy and terrifying one, so I feel like I'm kind of off the hook there. They happen kind of rarely, and when they do, they're usually not that big, and I might jinx it right now and knock on wood. But yeah, they haven't been too bad. Like, I haven't experienced a really bad one. So praying that that doesn't happen. But it might. And if it does, I will stand in the doorway and I will count my damn blessings. So. That was the end of this episode. Those were all such random and. Stupid stories, but it was kind of fun going down memory lane because. As we know, you know, stuck at home. Mine broke, brain broke. I don't have anymore thoughts anymore. So I'm going to have to start pulling from my past. To make episodes. But yeah, I hope you enjoyed it. And I care about you all. And I love you all.
