So Its been 2 weeks since my move to Dallas, TX and I'm just starting to feel settled in. Its taken me a few days to take in all these new changes in my life, but its definitely exciting and I'm liking Texas so far.
One thing I'm still having trouble with, like any other person new to a city, is finding my way around town. I spent most of last week getting lost around the city trying to find something as simple as milk. It seems like every other street here is a one-way street, so if you miss your turn you have to take a little trip around town to find your way back. Not very fun, but I found a lot of interesting places (I didn't mean to find) that way.
One of the things that really surprised me was the weather. Its frikin cold here! Last Thursday Dallas had a record 12.5 inches of snow! I didn't even know it snowed in Texas, so you could imagine my surprise when I opened my bedroom window and saw this...
I'm from LA where we've never even herd of snow so every time I see it it amazes me. Walking around and seeing everything covered in a blanket of white can look so beautiful, but not so much when you have to scoop it off your windshield and drive in it.
Work at Reel FX is going great. The people at the studio are so cool and a lot of fun to work with. I'm having a blast and learning so much from them. Since I started I've gotten assigned 3 shots on one of their latest projects and last Thursday I finaled my first.
