Im moving to LA pursue acting...What Next?
I dont want to hear any comments like: Everyone is moving to LA to do the same thing. or basically anything bashing my choices. Im moving to LA, theres no changing that. I just want to know places, things, etc. I should do next. I HAVE a car.

I never want to look back on my life wishing I would of done this, therefore Im doing it now.
