My name is Paul Sherman.

Yes sure!

I’m from Chicago, Illinois, in the Unites States.

I do like living here…Los Angeles is a very vibrant city. The climate is really very nice, and there are people from a lot of different places from the world that you get to meet every day, which I think is very exciting. Los Angeles is also the hub for the country’s entertainment industry do the city’s always very lively and happening.

Cue Card
Talk about an instance when you had to get up very early in the morning. Please say
- Where and when did it happen?
- Why did you get up so early?
- How did you feel after that?
I’d like to talk about the time when I had to go to a friend’s wedding back in Chicago. It takes around 4 hours in flight to reach Chicago and I was all set to leave Los Angeles a day before the wedding. But as luck would have it, my ticketing agent wasn’t able to book me in the flight that I wanted and I was told that no other flights were available. Now the only option was to go by train which took around 30 hours and I did not have that much time at all. So, I decided to go to the airport early in the morning and catch the first flight I could find. For this I woke up at 3 am, and rushed to the airport reaching by 3.35, and inquired in all terminals for any cancellations or vacancies. I was there asking anyone I could find to help me out, and by 5 am I was lucky enough to find a last minute cancellation in a 5.15 am flight to Chicago and I immediately boarded it. Of course I was exhausted by then, mentally more due to the tension of not being able to reach on time, but I was relieved that my decision of waiting on the airport proved to be a fruitful one.

- How often do you get up that early in the morning?
Rarely…it’s only when I have to go to some event or leave really early for a journey, then only I wake up this early in the morning.

- Do you like to wake up late in weekends?
Yes! That is the one thing that I look forward to on weekends! I do not get to sleep in late till 9 or 10 am and I miss that phase of my life a lot. So, on weekends I’m really psyched about sleeping late into the morning. I even switch my cell phone off before sleeping for that matter.
