It had been over four years since I made the trek out here to Canoga Park, CA. I have learned a lot and broadened the horizons I knew needed work. With 32 years under my belt, I hope one day I can look back on this time fondly. The times I had with my brother, some of the cool gigs I worked on and the beautiful girl who always believed in me. Those were the positives and that was the whole lot of them. Some had recommended I start the ‘Pessimistic Podcast’ to share all my complaints about the greater Los Angeles area with the rest of the world.

But like everything else here it just never happened for me. I had been close to making some dreams come true. But the foundation of people I know and love are in a different place. It’s time for me to head back to a place that I am comfortable in, a place where I can be myself, and probably most important of all I want to live somewhere I can feel like I am somebody. That place is Indianapolis, IN and I have missed it dearly. Hopefully it welcomes me back with open arms, and if not I’m willing to work for it.

On the lookout for a career opportunity. The production industry is a long way from ever being back to the world that I know and have learned so much about over the last 4 years. As I look towards the future I am going to try my hand at sales. It’s something I’ve always been good at and I believe it’s something that I can really be great at and enjoy doing.

The fact of the matter is that I just didn’t have what it takes to make it out here in the city of angels, and I know deep down it’s because I never really wanted to. Impressing the people of California is not important to me. Being around my friends and family and the people that love me are what is important to me now. I just can’t wait to get home and wash this place off me. Thanks for taking everything Cali.

Peace Out, Kyle Jones
