So flash forward... we head back to the studio... sadly our whole dojo had been destroyed after the final episode so the crew was hard at work rebuilding, The good news about that. all of Miltons plaid wardrobe had been sold off so now he gets to undergo a growth in style.... mr fashion-esta!
The great thing about going into the 4th season was the swiftness of our days. First season we'd walk out of the studio after 9 p.m. Season 4, we were flying out of there usually before 5p.m. Tapings we going by so quick and some weeks we were shooting more than one episode.
I remember one day my mom took me aside... yes I was in craft services... she said, "Take time, this time to really sit back and enjoy each single moment with everyone. This is a once in a lifetime tv family that has watched you grow up." That really hit me hard... like that Oprah AH HA moment. This tv family has been there with me thru so much.... my first kiss, my voice changing, my driving on to the lot for the first time, my first group appearance representing the show, my prom, my first relationship, my first nephew's birth, and every birthday for the 4 seasons.
With my family being split up, dad in Mississippi, my sister being in Alabama, and my mom being with me for the last 10 years... you'd think we would have been lonely...but with this tv family here in California, we never spent a holiday alone.
It's now been 6 months since the show has ended... yes I miss the day to day interaction with cast and crew... esp. craft services... but with the new show Gamers Guide now being produced by Kickin Its producers, I find myself driving onto the studio lot... walking onto set and seeing the writers and crew all there.... and some days Jason, Olivia, Mateo and Leo can be seen sitting around with everyone just like the good old days.

Until then... Wasabi!
