Moving to Los Angeles after high school on my own. Any tips & suggestions?
Ok so I'm about to start my senior year in high school. It has always been my dream to move to LA and I plan on starting my life there some way. Los Angeles is about 3hrs 30mins from where I live now. My family don't really agree on me leaving but I will be 18 and I'm following my own dreams. I also have a bf in LA whose mom is willing to let me move in but I don't want to depend on that so much. I would like to get an apartment with roommates if I can. I'm not too sure if my mom will help me because she doesn't think ill make it but my attitude is that I'm going either way and no one can stop me. I adore LA so much I love going there and ill be able to see my bf more. I've been with him for a year now and we have such a strong relationship and people and family still try to bring us down. I plan on marrying this guy. I'm so sure he's the one. But this is not about my love life. It's about making it in a big city on my own being independent. I'm willing to work also. Oh and I plan on either doing cosmetology or going into fashion design. Two things I love doing. I'm not too sure on what to do to make it out there but I'm accepting as much help and advice as I can. I know it will be hard and expensive but in willing to do anything. I will struggle and work my *** off to finally get what i want. What should I do?
