"You'll find that as you go out there, you're going to amount to JACK SQUAT!!"
Thats what I've learned this week! Ha! It was a good week but I definatly know my place, I have so much to learn. There is so many things that go into designing a room. Designing is the fun part, but figuring out prices (which I know nothing about, so thats been real fun to figure out), having accurate measurements, and your design having to be changed because of the price. Kind of a bummer.
One of the many things that I had to do this week was build three perspectives of the master bedroom in 3D on CAD and render all three in the space of three days! Basically I didn't sleep at all last week. I honestly don't know how I got all of it done, but I did and I have to say that they weren't that bad. Shlomi was impressed with them so I was happy with it.
I met with my client (Judy) for the first time on friday night to present to her my design. I was so nervous and had no idea what I was going to say but luckly Shlomi was there to help me out. It went really well and for the most part she really liked the design. Shlomi is puttng me in charge of the whole thing now. He wants the bedroom all done and installed by the time I leave in 5 weeks! Yikes! I have so much to do and I don't even know were to start! By the time Judy and her husband left that night it was almost 9! I was so exhausted! A 12 hour day with no sleep and no pay is a long day!
H Studio is building a new showroom in downtown LA so Shlomi and Ellen (my other supervisor) wants me to do some of the renderings for that too, should be fun.
During the week I ran a ton of arrends to the PDC and other really random places, along my travels I ran into the the famous Hollywood sign. It was so weird I sort of just stumbled apon it, I looked up and there it was! So I had to stop and take pictures of this iconic piece of California.
LA so far has been so fun, there is so much to do and see! I was happy to find out that my friends Kylee and Amy are still in town so its been nice to actually know somebody and do stuff with. This Saturday we went to the LA Zoo, we played some sweet bowling off of Hollywood Blvd., and watched a really weird movie outside at the Hollywood Forever Cemetary. West Hollywood is crazy, it's full of interesting individuals! What happens in West Hollywood, stays in West Hollywood! If there is anyone that is from or knows West Hollywood knows what I'm talking about!
On Sunday I went to the Singles Ward, the members are so nice, it should be a really fun ward! I met this guy named Harmen and he's in "showbiz", he found out that I'm a interior designer and asked if I wanted to help design a set for a shoe commercial on friday. That would be so awesome! I have to work so we'll see if I will be able to help out!
After church I picked up Kylee and Amy and headed to the beach. By the time we got there it was super cloudy and chilly so it wasn't too relaxing, but it was fun to play in the water for a bit and take some pictures. We also got to drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, it's so pretty! I could drive along that for hours!
This week I have to get a hold of Judy so we can get things going on her room, its going to be cool to see how it turns out! Should be a good week, until then...peace out!
