After being in NYC for 11 months things were coming along slowly but surely. I was getting auditions, even though I wasn't really right for most of them. I was figuring out how it all worked. I was also having second thoughts about my management; I wasn't working directly any agents so she was all I had. Normally, I am a hands-on type a guy and this felt kinda weird. When I signed with her I felt that Greg was who she really wanted. She told me that she felt I was the "brains of the duo" and I would determine if "we" signed or not. Not true at all, Greg did his own thing. I felt like I didn't have anything to lose, at the very least it was a major factor in getting me to New York.
At the restuarant they hired a stunning, vibrant new hostess named Keilana. She was beautifully radiant, but I was trying to "get my hustle on" with my career and not really interested in dating anyone. She eventually suggested that we get together a few times and finally we did. We spent a lot of time together and I have to say, up to that point, I hadn't really clicked that well with anyone I dated before. I really thought she could be the one. Those were some really fond memories.
