From Angelica -
I think it's more of like a sneakily over time thing because I think every new experience gives you more information about yourself and my roommate in L.A. would always joke that like whenever I was up against a decision that I just hadn't collected enough data yet and as soon as I collected enough data that I would know the answer and she was always right because like I frame a lot of things in my mind that way now because I'm, I used to be like more like frustrated or impatient with like not knowing what should happen. Like not having clarity and I'm like I just don't have enough information yet.
So I need like more experiences or to talk to more people or whatever and then it will make sense. And I think that that's kind of how my journey was throughout that transition was just like little bits of evidence here and there. Then there was like literally this hilarious email that I got from somebody who had been an advisor of my startup who was, who had just moved to L.A. and he like laid out a whole bunch of bullet points. He was like, here's why you should move here. And like it, these are all the reasons why, because I know we have similar personalities and because I know that there's like a stigma around moving to L.A. in the minds of New Yorkers. Like, let me just like help you get over that because it's really great here and they'll thrive. And I feel like that was one of the things that made me feel more confident about taking that leap.
