Austin & SXSW

Four things I’ve learned whilst in Austin:

1. If you wear big sunglasses, unlike LA, you will be known and recognised for them and should expect to hear at night “Aren’t you the girl who wore the big sunglasses?” a lot.

2. If you have long blonde hair and a foreign accent and attend a tech convention, you will be called M’Lady at some point.

3. You’ll meet a lot of people. But the person you’re most likely to connect with (and makes you question if you were separated at birth), lives only four blocks from you back in L.A..

4. If you lose an award, going out with great people afterwards will make you feel a hell of a lot better.
