My Personal Comparisons of Apartments in O.C. vs Milan.

As one who moves more than anyone can count, I’d say I know a thing or two about the ins and outs of living in an apartment. In the last year and a half, I’ve moved at least 2-4x which, I came to find out that the apartments in California vs Milan have some sliiiiight differences in them.

Hustling In Southern California’s Job Market.

New Year, New Challenges. 2017 for me started out with a bang where going on job interviews have become a standard day to day life. Whoo! lucky me 🙂 I hope someone out there can relate to me on this but, the job market in Southern California (specifically L.A. and O.C.) have gotten more competitive within the Digital field. Base on the last few interviews I’ve gone through, my interview experiences have been very interesting to say the least.  Continue reading “Hustling In Southern California’s Job Market.”

My Favorite Spots in Milan

As I wind down to the last few months I have left in Europe, I realised how much I’ve seen over the year I’ve been living here in Milan. I’m glad I’ve had the chance to share it on this blog because reflecting back to these memories have made me realise how much I’ve seen, done and I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Time sure moves fast! Continue reading “My Favorite Spots in Milan”

Milan Apartments – Part 2

I moved. The apartment I’ve been living in for a year in Milan was something I found on the internet through a housing agency while I was still in L.A. They were one of the few agencies that offered housing online and I didn’t have much choice because I needed a place before I came to Milan. Now, I would say that if I could bypass going through a housing agency in Milan, I would.  Continue reading “Milan Apartments – Part 2”

A Declaration of Pain

You’ve read that headline correctly. It doesn’t mean anything except a representative of my lack in sleep and well, I’ve lost my mind a little bit today.

I’ve been up since 5-ish hoping that I would arrive at the Secretary of State building in downtown L.A. by 8am. You may wonder why I’m up so early or why I’m even doing this? Remember that Declaration of Value document I mentioned a few weeks ago? Well, my dear, this is all part of that process. Indeed, the document has become a Declaration of Pain. Excuse my bitterness. I think I’ve lost a brain cell somewhere between 5-8am. https://astintabroad.wordpress.com/2015/09/01/dichiarazione-di-valore-declaration-of-value-dv/
