I've been so behind on this blog, so I decided to post various photos of what I've been doing. I update the most on Instagram , key word dizzy amy 

















just another day in Hollywood.

This is me at the location of the Modern Times ending.

I finally had the chance to visit the location of where the ending to Modern Times was filmed, which is one of the best endings in cinema history in my opinion

Forest Lawn. Glendale.


Finally made it out to the beautiful Forest Lawn cemetery. Many celebrities graves are here. I have always heard about such awful staff behavior, we did not encounter rude staff and it was very quiet and peaceful, although I think if you were to hop the gates to see your fav celebrity you will get asked to leave. You are able to find the sites such as Jean Harlows and Mary Pickford but you cannot go in and see them, and if you think about jumping the gate,they do have cameras. I was however brave enough to go see Clara Bows Grave and it's very easy to see from the "gate". I was thinking to myself, why can't the celebrities have private tombs just for family after all they did share so much of themselves publicly. 






 




So many more updates to share when I have time!!

Hollywood sign..

Nick and I hiked up to the Hollywood sign, the views were amazing!! I could not help but wonder how Peg Enwistle climbed those hills at night so she could jump to her death… the poor dear :(
While the stars on the sidewalk are now an everyday normal thing for me.. the hollywood sign is always a reminder you are living in one of the most famous places in the world.   As a midwest transplant I admit I had some of the stereotypical ideas in my head about LA before I moved here, and many are proving me wrong. My goal is to show people the real Los Angeles not what you see on TV.








The start of the hike.


On top of the world!
