July 9th, 2015.  Wanted to give a short updated!   I am now working, and actually enjoying it.  I have become a registered technician at this company which is known for Termite Control in Los Angeles.  So far I am not licensed to be able to do termites, just general pest control.  I’ve been riding along with a guy name Jerry Garcia, which is funny since I think that to be the name of a guy from the Grateful Dead?  Of course, he never hears the end of it!  Haha, which is funny.  Anyway, the pay is not too bad at $14 an hour.  I’m still living with some friends.  As soon as I get some more licensing I can do termites and my job will pay me a lot more.  Then I can get my own place and hopefully start surfing and save up some money and then do more traveling.

 

June 23rd, 2015.  – Good news!  Actually, great news!  I have found employment.  I know some people who may be reading my blog may be frustrated because it didn’t seem like it took long for me to get a job, but let me assure you it is because I have dual citizenship in the United States and France.  I feel sorry for those people who cannot get a job easily.  So, where am I working?  I decided to become a customer service representative and dispatcher at this termite control company in Los Angeles.  They do pest control and other types of exterminating.  Entomology has always fascinated me, so I think this will be a good fit.  My job will be to answer phones and to answer questions and then dispatch technicians.  I will probably then work towards getting my license over time and then learn the requirements about becoming an Entomologist.  That will take some time, but I feel it is a solid career path as there is always going to be bugs!  I will keep you informed on what is next!

 

Well, this will be my first post since I got my blog up.  I am now in the great state of California, and let me say it is way different than France.  The first thing I need to do is find some employment.  I have a lot of skills, and one thing I am great at is clerical work.  Luckily, I am an American citizen even though I was born in France since my parents were United States citizens.

The best part of Los Angeles, is definitely the food.  I went to get a bite to eat the day I landed at a place called IN-N-OUT Burger.

Let me just say that this food is GOOD.   Not healthy, but it is good.  So good.  Probably one of the best burgers I have ever had!
