Wow, so that old saying, “you can’t go home again,” definitely doesn’t know my family. Landing in DC and stepping into that freezing walkway tunnel and outside into the cold Virginia night felt oddly satisfying.
This trip saw me do a couple of firsts, not the least of which was getting to a film a Janet Jackson submission with two of my favorite dancers from the DMV, Ama Law and Harmony Gbe. Huge s/o to Jonathan Hsu and Dexter for the amazing assists and location, just wow.
Second, I got to enlisted to drive around Washington, DC and all the exteriors of the DC Public Library system. And with my youngest brother Joel no less! It was super hectic, cuz I’m pretty sure DC traffic beats LA’s by a landslide, but sometimes there really is nothing like a run-n-gun shoot to get the blood pumping and the fingers numb.
Today is Saturday, Jan 5, and as I am going back to Los Angeles on Monday, I really hope tonight I can see all my friends, old and new, and make some solid memories tonight with them. If anyone knows me, they know how much I love and am proud of where I come from.
(but dont tell anyone, I am SOOOO ready to go back to LA, haha!)
