THIS IS FRIDAY, JANUARY 16, 2015!
A more “average” kind of day, starting at work and ending with uruk-killing and a house party with friends.

One of those days to look back on and think “I don’t have it all together, but that’s okay.”

Enjoy!

I usually set my alarm for 7:15, but peel myself out of bed by 7:40.

_MG_0007
Retainer out, chug that water.

_MG_0009
I throw clothes on first because my apartment is poorly insulated. Plus, if I get dressed first then that gives me more time to sip my coffee later.

_MG_0011
_MG_0012
Wash my face with my favorite popcorn-smelling Lush cleanser.

_MG_0017
Nothing like scrubbing waking up and scrubbing dead skin cells off your face.

_MG_0018
Had really salty pho the night before, and now my eyebags are POPPIN. (And nose crusties…yeah, still getting rid of the cough/runny nose)

_MG_0021
Like my new little lava rock plant?

_MG_0022
_MG_0025
Timing coffee to blew is the best thing

_MG_0029
Dang all my surfaces look so dirty. I swear it’s streaky from clorox wipes! T___T

_MG_0032
Set a timer for 8:18 because I am completely stupid and love playing Animal Crossing with my morning coffee.

_MG_0034
_MG_0036
Every morning I have to collect my 5 fossils, find the gem, get the coins from the rock, build a snowman, play bingo…exhausting!

_MG_0037
Dog hair on my sock.

_MG_0041
The basil plant I just got is already wilting. I moved it from the kitchen into the living room, it’s definitely sunnier here. Hope it perks up! I’m a master plant killer.

_MG_0052
_MG_0053
Today’s complete cozy clothes selection. Tans and blacks, I mean, why not. Plus you have to wear beer socks on a Friday. Also, I got these pants for Christmas, they are insulted “leggings” from Uniqlo and have a DRAWSTRING they are so comfy.

_MG_0054
Off for the day!

_MG_0065
_MG_0067
A sunny, lovely morning

_MG_0070
_MG_0072
Right on schedule! Pulling out by 8:30, and got “Hello” from RadioLab blasting.

_MG_0073
57 degrees Fahrenheit (13.9 degrees Celsius)

_MG_0076
Not too trafficky today.

_MG_0084
_MG_0087
Getting closer

_MG_0092
_MG_0093
Made it to work!

_MG_0099
Weirdly bright morning

_MG_0108
_MG_0107
Umbrellas for visitors (which they keep out despite how NOT rainy it’s been)

_MG_0112
Do you see the little bird perched on the windows? (And Downtown LA in the distance)

_MG_0117
Into my cubicle! Pop on my super mature, but really rad Spongebob headphones.

_MG_0120
Around 10 I like to have a snack.

_MG_0121
Today it’s these little honey mustard crunchy sticks. I love these, but man they give you stinky breath.

_MG_0127
Tweedy tickets went on sale, so got myself a pair! They’ll be playing in LA in March.

_MG_0135
_MG_0140
I decided to take the camera out into the galleries, had a few things in mind to shoot, but sometimes it’s nice to get out, see how people are moving through certain galleries, see certain rearranged spaces, etc.

_MG_0146
_MG_0168
Wandering through the Decorative Arts & Sculpture galleries.

_MG_0170
_MG_0173
_MG_0177
Paintings! (And hello Titian back there)

_MG_0205
_MG_0199
Back down to Dec Arts and the period rooms

_MG_0208
I always pass by this vase and think “man, that looks gorgeous there.”

_MG_0214
_MG_0239
Lovely light in this corridor

_MG_0265
_MG_0270
Passing by visitors on my way to the cafe

_MG_0271
The “famous” piano curve

_MG_0275
_MG_0281
I’ve been trying to be better about having lunch away from my desk. I usually get into the office and don’t really see sun (we have no windows where I work). I get out and it’s dark! I think that’s what makes me so sluggish.

_MG_0283
Having a noodle bowl out by the research library today.

_MG_0286
_MG_0287
Browsing reddit and slurpin’ noodles

_MG_0289
After lunch I pop into the research library to take a photo for a colleague

_MG_0291
Leave my leftover noodle bowl and coffee on the banister while I sneak in a conference room to badger the group into a photo.

_MG_0315
Back to my desk!

_MG_0317
Sometimes it’s nice to be sitting and cozy with my blanket and headphones at work.

_MG_0319
Edit some photos I shot today

_MG_0320
Had a little too much fun with this what artworks see thing.

_MG_0326
And soon it was time to go home! Yay! It’s magic hour. I’m always so pleased to leave the office when there’s still a bit of light outside, even better when the sun is setting.

_MG_0328
_MG_0329
The sun creating this awesome pattern on the walls

_MG_0330
_MG_0334
If you ever visit the Getty Center, you should try to stay until 5:30/6, the sunsets are worth it!

_MG_0346
The ocean was an illuminated blue!

_MG_0350
Also, another Getty Center tip is to walk down the hill! It’s such a lovely walk, about 3/4ths of a mile.

_MG_0355
_MG_0359
You’ll get gorgeous views and sometimes (if you’re lucky) you’ll see a deer.

_MG_0360
It takes 10-15 minutes (depending on how much you loiter)

_MG_0365
_MG_0366
Back to my car, ready to head out at 5:30. A pretty early night for me!

_MG_0370
_MG_0372
Traffic is always bad on the way home. More podcast time for me!

_MG_0380
_MG_0381
_MG_0387
HELLO BOYS! So it took about 45 minutes to get home, bleh. (To compare, takes about 20 to get to work in the morning)

_MG_0388
Pop my leftover lunch in the fridge

_MG_0389
Have a senbei snack while I wait for Kiki

_MG_0393
My basil perked up a little!

_MG_0397
HI Tweedy, how is your night

_MG_0399
“Where’s Kiki?”

_MG_0402
She’s here! Looking fly.

_MG_0405
_MG_0414
_MG_0417
Sufi on the scene

_MG_0418
I attempt to scrap together some dinner for us.

_MG_0418
Kiki getting our TV show pick in order.

_MG_0427
_MG_0431
So we each had a bowl of minestrone soup, shared some of my leftover noodle bowl, and had cheese toasties. Not bad!

_MG_0435
Some veggie, some carbs, why not

_MG_0438
Settled on Broad City for our dinner entertainment

_MG_0439
And then we move onto our true mission for the night. Zach got a copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. So we’ve been on a killing uruks kick.

_MG_0443
We spent basically 3 hours like this.

_MG_0446
_MG_0448
_MG_0453
Making some old fashioneds. After I make drinks, all the cabinets end up wide open and there’s shit all over the counter. Help.

_MG_0455
Not baaaad. Still haven’t perfected this.

_MG_0463
Getting ready to head out. No more videogames for the eve.

_MG_0466
_MG_0467
_MG_0468
Girl stuff in the bathroom (OKAY DUSTY MIRROR MY FAULT…I’m never quite together)

_MG_0472
LIPSTICK

_MG_0474
Ready to kill

_MG_0479

_MG_0505

_MG_0511

Beer delivery! Thank you.

_MG_0517
_MG_0520
_MG_0521
Socializing

_MG_0522
_MG_0524
_MG_0529
_MG_0530
The Kass show

_MG_0536
Everybody super into the peanuts

_MG_0542
_MG_0557
_MG_0547
Crucial record change

_MG_0559
_MG_0561
It’s not a haus party if everybody doesn’t end up in the kitchen

_MG_0562
I went with Jordan to the garage to grab a reflector he’s letting me borrow. Didn’t find the reflector, but did find a friend we all thought moved out of town.

_MG_0568
_MG_0580
More liveliness.

_MG_0588
Back home by 2:45 AM. Roouughhh.

_MG_0590
_MG_0592
Wipe off my face, and hop into bed with the pups. Tweedy already has his spot claimed.

Happy 2015!

Much love friends.
