job on The Simpsons, and that I started in a couple of days but had no money saved and no place to live, she said without hesitation, “Great! Come stay with me! You can sleep on my futon.” So that’s exactly what I did. While this was a very exciting time for me, it was a lonely one too. I left some of my best friends behind when I moved, friends I worried I would lose touch with. I started my new job and listened as my coworkers talked in the hallway and made lunch plans. I missed my group of
friends in northern California, I missed my family, and I was terrified to start my new life in L.A.. But at the end of the day, I had Andrea to keep me company and her futon to sleep on, so I knew everything would be okay. Ten years later, I am still in L.A., Andrea has moved to New York, I see my northern California friends every summer, I have an amazing group of friends here in Los Angeles, and a futon of my very own in case any of them ever needs a place to sleep. I love my friends, and I
Mya, who I still talk to every day even though we haven’t lived within 300 miles of each other in ten years. For my loyal friend Andrea, who stood by my side when nobody else would. For my loving friend Nikki, who is my touchstone in this vast city. For all of my friends, near and far, thank you for being in my life (and, while I’m at it, thanks to Facebook for making that possible). And finally, to Colin and Marlow, the loves of my life.
