My first day at DreamWorks started with a company-wide toast from CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg to the release of Madagascar 3. He welcomed the presence of an LA Laker Pau Gasol (who drove a Porsche to park in the front), wore the rainbow Madagascar 3 clown wig, and encouraged all to indulge in the company-provided champagne. It was quite an exciting start to my experience at DreamWorks.
There’s something about having too much free time that makes me less productive than if I had too much to do. I’ve been incredibly lazy while at home for the last three weeks, playing games with my sister and plain just playing games (Dragonvale…so many dragons hatched). But now that I’ve started work, I’m actually more inclined to do all these side projects that have been neglected in the three weeks of more than enough free time to complete them. This blog being one of them.
Thanks to the amazing chivalry and kindness of a good friend, I managed to arrive safely in LA despite flying into an airport that was a good 45 minutes away from the actual city. After settling into my sublet, my friend took me to Griffith Observatory to see the city. I was greeted by the lovely afternoon fog.
My friend pointed to the different areas we’d driven through while going from the faraway airport to the grocery store to where I was living…but since he pointed at every single direction it was a bit of a pointless exercise.
I really love all the mountains here. Florida is far too flat.
