It is already Sunday and I feel like I have to give you an update on one of the most exciting weeks we had so far. This was our fourth week in the US and finally things begin to happen. The best news came on Monday, when I actually got a job offer. I will start my new job tomorrow and am really happy and excited about it. I don’t want to talk about details right now, because it might be bad luck to write about it before I even began working. But I definitely will keep you updated.
The next nice thing happened on Wednesday. We went to the DMV to take the written test for our driver’s license and both passed. I actually wasn’t expecting that, because I just began studying on Tuesday night. I will tell you more about our visit to the DMV in my next post, because I think it is worth writing a whole post about it.
We went to the Sony Studios to sit in the audience of Rules of Engagement on Wednesday night. If you’ve never heard of it: It is a sitcom about two couples and different states of marriage and love. It is a real fun show, but I have to say that sitting in the audience for 5 hours was a bit too much. The actual filming didn’t take more than maybe 2 of the 5 hours, so we spent the most time listening to the jokes of the audience entertainer. If you are a sitcom fan I suggest that you take the chance to sit in the audience of a show, but be warned: It is a long ride!
We spent the whole Thursday and Friday driving around the neighbourhood checking out apartments and finally had kind of a break-through on Friday. We found an apartment near Runyon Canyon that we both like and can afford. We applied for it yesterday, so please keep your fingers crossed for us!
This is it so far, because I now have to watch the Oscar’s and get ready for my first work day tomorrow.
