Sorry to leave so soon but I finally get to see land after 3 hours. I'll finish this later... We just arrived at Mimi's and we're already heading out, right now she taking me to her favorite restaurant Takami Sushi & Robata a well known sushi restaurant. Well i got to go food calling to me, but before i do I have to squeal tomorrow we're going to the Museum of Neon Art aka MONA. Will write soon - Jill P.S. I'm so excited and i just can't hide it... |

12: Dear Journal, 08/02/12 Sorry i haven't written in two days but you know the say when you're having fun time really flies. Anyway , the past three days have probably been the best days of my life! Mimi took me to the Universal Citywalk in Hollywood, It was amazing! It took us an hour but i managed to get a picture of all my favorite actors' stars. The next wasn't as exciting but it was still exciting we went to Beverly Hills and literally shopped till we dropped by the time we were done i had 27 bags and Mimi had 32, god she loves to shop! Friday we went to the Pasadena Playhouse and watched play i can't remember much because 25 minutes in i fell asleep, woaps. Well since i spent all today reading and writing i don't have much to say, but tonight were going to the Griffin Park Observatory. Yeah! Star gazing note the sarcasm, wish me luck! Seriously I'll need tons to survive tonight. Well till we meet again - Jill |

13: Dear Journal, 08/06/12 I missed you the past 4 days but they are nothing compared to what we're doing today. Happy B-day Me! For my birthday after I'm done with breakfast Mimi is taking me to the museum of Contemporary Art and then a surprise at night. Well I'll write before i go to sleep see ya. | Wish me luck- Jill | Okay, best birthday ever! First we went to the museum of Contemporary Art and saw the Ben Jones exhibit and my favorite piece of artwork would have to be the 'The Video'. After the museum we floored it to Six Flags Magic Mountain. We went on Scream and Dive devil over and over again, because I had to go on without screaming but it just wasn't working and Mimi got bored. Right now I'm getting dress 'fancy' for my Birthday dinner, but she won't tell me where we're going and it's so irritating. All I know is that dancing is involved, Yeah! To bad i can't dance, like at all. |

14: Dear Journal, 08/09/12 Sorry, sorry i know i forgot three days oh well. Today is just a lazy day. I'm going to Westwood Village Theaters to see 'The Hobbit', sadly today I'm all alone. Mimi is working today. I think today I'm just gonna go to the beach a tan that or go to the California Science Center because I hear that they have a great Cleopatra exhibit and I've been fascinated in her since I had to do a project about her life, Fun. | Well wish me luck on the rest of my trip, I'm sure it will be just as great maybe better. Got to go Cleopatra is calling me. Bye. I wish you luck on your journey. - Jill |

15: Los Angeles and Overland Park are two very different cities but they have some similarities. Overland Park compared to L.A. in population wise is very small.L.A. is a Hilly coastal plain while Overland Park is separated into three regions Great plains, Dissected Till Plains and Southeastern Plains. Both Overland Park and Los Angeles are big but Los Angeles is like two times the size.Los Angeles is surrounded by the Pacific ocean as western and eastern boundaries while Overland Park is surrounded by Nebraska, Oklahoma,Colorado and Missouri.These are just a few similarities and differences but from them you can tell they are both great cities. | |

16: My journey to L.A. has let me experience new art and entertainment.I got to visit famous landmarks and meet new people. When i went their i realized that Kansas isn't that bad its just i need t explore to leave to really appreciate the state and my home, because some people there talk about how its boring there only because for them its a An actual journey i went on was when my family went to Israel. I got a chance to learn some of their languages like Hebrew, Arabic, and German. I visited historical and well known place on my rip like Masada, the Dead Sea, the Old city and my favorite the beach in Tel Aviv. Not only did i learn new language and go to historical sites but i also tried new foods and clothing styles. My journey to Israel helped me better understand the land and its religions, also my religion. Now I ave a better idea of how my religion works and how Israel is the Jewish country. | The picture are from my trip.

17: A journey is traveling from one place to another. But its actually so much more sure it traveling but it also how you've changed mentally and physically through the journey. Got out and take a journey maybe not to L.A. but to London or even Canada and see how you've 'change'. | A journey is like a marriage.The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. - John Steinbeck | | | | | | |
