About One L

ORIGINAL BIO FROM 2012: I am an ASU college grad who is “living the dream” by packing up and moving to the big city of Chicago and then on to Los Angeles for comedic, writing, performing, loving life endeavors. Born in Colorado and destined to become a writer, this blog serves as a release to the old adage “if you want to be a writer, then you must write every day.”

My hope with this blog is to encounter other young LA nobodies like me and speak with their quirky perspectives in mind. Shed some light on some sometimes miserable, sometimes funny, and always honest moments in this young adult life. I’M gonna be big.

That, and I am going to do one recipe a day from The Art of French Cooking by Julia Child.
