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.

Besides this being really poor timing, you should bank as much money as you can before you move so that you can settle in relatively stress free as you find your feet in a new city.
