On today’s episode we are gonna be talking about leaving home. -yeah. James: why do you always do that A few months ago marked my official one month anniversary of living in Los Angeles for one year – I’ve- *claps* Ian: WOOOOO James: thanks James: I’ve been living alone and it has literally changed my life so so so much. And it has been nothing like I ever expected it to be. What’d you expect it to be? I don’t really know. I was just like ready to like live in my mansion, and like have my own personal chef, but like do not a lot of work. And like have my G-Wagon. But then Mercedes discontinued the G-Wagon. And I am renting a regular apartment- Oh yeah that’s the problem. and i don’t have a personal chef… And I Post Mates everything, and I have to Uber everywhere. And it’s just a lot. But I love it. I’m still in high school. I’m only a Sophomore.So I have 2 years left. Living at home definitely has it’s benefits. I get to see all my friends and live around with my family, but I feel like I wanna move to LA soon. See, you say that NOW But then once you get to LA you realize how alone you actually are. And how nobody here cares about you AT ALL, in the slightest bit. Which is just a lovely thought process, it really you know just, makes you so happy on a daily basis but like I, and I know that you are too, was heavily reliant on mom and dad. to help us with Nooo Yess I do not rely on mom and dad at all Yea.. ok then, name one thing I let mom and dad do Mom does your laundry, she cooks you food because you would probably burn down our house because you can obviously not cook you’d burn down our house I can cook a FAT egg. That, ok, an egg, other than that, you’d be starving to death. LITERALLY she drives you places because you can not drive k, well, thats not my problem yea, well, I’m saying that if you were gonna move here you would have to figure it out gal cause its not like you could walk everywhere. Good luck with that! Uber… right… dad does all your homework for you because you’re literally dumb. dad does not do my homework. Kids at my school do all my homework *laughs* I love that! I would love to have you move to L.A. just be here for ten minutes and figure yourself out I’ve been here for a week! I’m pretty sure I know how L.A. works So brave sweetie! So proud of you thank you! when i moved to L.A. and reality set in and ohhhhhhhhh i had no idea what i was missing out on. Holy crap! although mom’s facebook recipes and everything that sucked SUCKED *laughs* i have not had a home cooked meal in like months I just postmates everything which is good because it is fresh. but at the same time, like hello, i do miss moms gross meatloaf occasionally and moms ‘nice’ spaghetti sometimes nahhhh Also, i don’t have a car because if I was to drive 10 minutes in L.A. i would definitely crash and probably die because i’m literally the worst driver ever so i have to uber everywhere which is once again, fine! but you know, sometimes you just want to like be on your own time and not worry about somebodies horrible taste in music in the front seat or the uber driver like farting – that’s soo true and them pretending it was you and like opening up the window everyone in L.A. is literally the worst. they’re all really really fake unless you find good people. so, have fun with that. Sookedmagooked everything here is ridiculously expencive so you’ll literally be paying thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars every month just to breathe the air here, which is gross and pol polluted in general anyway. so its not like you’re breathing good air L.A. sounds wonderful I don’t have a laundry unit in my apartment and the weird creepy room room in the basement of my building is so gross, so spooked. I remember once I went down there without feeling a ridiculously uncomfortable and being watched the entire time, so now I have to pay people to come do my laundry, which is literally the dumbest first world problem EVER! In the entire world and I never have clean clothes and I the same outfit every single day and that’s why if you follow me on snapchat. You know that I always wear the same stuff cause I am too scared to do my laundry. Living in the town that I do is not really a big town, so I don’t really feel unsafe, but I feel like living in L.A. you can definitely feel some sketchy. Yeah spooked muhgooked situations that all times of the day. I live downtown which I constantly am talking about and complaining about on snapchat and on twitter because that is literally the scariest place on Earth hello. I feel like I am going to die at like every moment that I walk outside. Every time I go and have makeup on I am verbally attacked by at least 10 different spooky men walking by on the street and always 1 woman that is like “Oh, sweety you look beautiful.” Love her, appreciate her at all costs because she is the saving grace to give me the faith to even step out of my apartment on a daily basis, but I agree, I never actually felt unsafe growing up where we did and like we would never even like lock our door or anything and like now, oh my god. One of my biggest fears is home intruders. I don’t know why it just spooks me so so so so so much and I always used to have like nightmares of people coming into our house and killing me! Same… and I always to have like… and I always used to think that if there was a home intruder, they were gonna come in right now and try to kill me. How can I flip the table and try to somehow get them instead of me and survive the situation. Like Katniss Everdeen and that type of shit. Living in L.A now, I do always feel unsafe and the first thing I do every time I get home is to lock both of my freaking latches on my door cause I am not trying to get killed. What about a baseball bat with nails on it i would probably miss knowing me you should definitely get like a weapon of some sort I don’t believe in weaponary what are you going to do? punch them in the face when they come in? Just lock the door, how are they gonna get in, I’m on the penthouse floor of my building *somber music* You talk all the (poop) about LA, you don’t understand what home is like I wake up at 7 O’Clock everyday, and i have to go to school, come home at 2 Do homework, most likely take a nap cause I’m tired go to bed and do the same thing 5 days a week I did that for 17 years, you’re not special sweetie *laughs* never said I was but that’s why I’m trying to move to LA, well ya I definitely do understand where you’re coming from in that like sometimes working on a schedule sucks, but on the other hand, living in LA and being self employed, I do get to work on my own schedule which is pretty good and fresh, you gotta point there pretty good and fresh as he says, when i was younger the main reason i wanted to move out and get my own place so badly, was to decorate it and have a cute apartment (ohhhhhh!) thats a fact, yeah i love decorating, i love interior design, hello, like my life is pinterest boards and pictures of my entire saved section it is all so neatly organised into everything house, kitchen, living room, walk in closet like (uhhhhhhhh) , i cannot wait to buy a house and make it literally the cutest ever and it will be like a magazine youre walking into it and i cannot wait (punching sound), my dreams were crushed though whe i moved into my apartement and it was first of all not that big, second of all couldnt paint it because hello im renting it, really rude, i have found with my landlord for weeks on end to try to paint my brick in my apartment white and they woudnt let me do it, so rude, so disrespectful, cant even believe it *laughs* i can believe that but it was sad, can you imagine how cute it would be with white brick hello, so cute, can you imagine how cute your apartment would be with no trash everywhere, well thats what i was getting at hold on *laughs* HEY! now that i have friends over all the time, and im always working, always doing I’m always doing shoots, im always opening pr boxes i’m always ordering post mates. five times a day. I get trash so quickly and for some reason – i don’t know why – i just produce so much trash and boxes and gross things in my apartment that just end up there. and i have to like clean up at least twice a week and like do an entire life cleanse and it’s really overwhelming. that’s because you don’t have mom to clean but, there’s a good side to that because she might find some stuff you don’t want her to find. I have nothing to hide. Okay. You could look through anything you want at my house you will not find anything okay. I mentioned moving to LA to mom and dad but mom says she’s not letting me do that unless she comes with us mom is not ever moving anywhere close – to me ever.
-no. I can’t deal with her because I know she’ll walk into the house completely uninvited, not even knocking on the door, anything.. she’ll sneak in through a window knowing our freakin’ mom. and will like wake me up in the morning and be like … rise and shine and give God the glory -ory, rise and shine I’m off beat But that is literally our mom down to a definition. She is not.. what makes her think she’s moving to LA? I don’t know? Even though I do really love Mom and really, really do miss a lot a lot of the help that she gave me, on a daily basis Living alone has honestly been a really really cool experience That I think forced me to grow up SO FAST But I really wouldn’t change it for the world Like, I’ve been forced to become like such an independent person and to really work on a schedule and to get up, early! Every day and without somebody coming in and sing and clapping at me and literally, pulling me out of bed. Because that happened many a time when I was going to be late for school. And it’s just taught me a lot.
