Unsure where to put this, but I'll put it here.

Lately, with me being 30 now, I wonder if it is too late for me to follow my L.A. dream. That answer- absolutely NOT. I've accepted the fact that I am a late bloomer, and that there are plenty of people that are in my spot that didn't have a job until later. So that gives me a lift, in a way. Also, while I'm still single, there are many people who are in the same spot I am right now or older than me and still single. So that also gives me a lift. :D

I hope one day to visit Japan.... I'm amazed that I'm 30 and I still haven't gone there. But that will change, soon. Hopefully.

At this point, I am like this regarding my L.A. dream: "If it happens, it happens. If it doesn't, well, at least I tried." For me, all hope is never lost.

What's your LA dream? To live there? To be a celebrity there? To work there? To meet people there or do a project there? All of the above? :)

And it ain't over till it's over.

Thanks all for the encouraging words. :D

That is so possible. You can make a million connections on LinkedIn and find jobs anywhere in IT on Indeed. LA I hear is a dying city, but maybe not for a while.

Thirty is not too old. I'm 52, and I still have dreams. I have to accept that I probably will never have everything normal people have because I started too late, but I'm much better off than I was six years ago, when I was at my lowest point.

It's never too late for you to follow your LA dream. A hopeful attitude is a good attitude to have. :)
