MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 31 – SEPTEMBER 6
A week full of friends and indulging in relaxation. A four day weekend with a bunch of friends in town that were in LA from the Bay area and Madrid! Plus a beach BBQ for Gabby’s birthday, and a day in downtown and Little Tokyo.

Sorry for too many photos of my friends doing things like…laughing and smiling at each other. It just gives me such joy to see people happy that I love!

Enjoy!

Woke up early on Monday morning to work on my wireframing and clickable prototypes for class. Sufi, do you want to test my prototype? Nah.

Skype call in an empty conference room with fellow presenters for an upcoming museum conference. I just found an empty room, and of course halfway through my call somebody busts in and I had to scurry away…

I can't get enough of my pug socks

Tuesday morning noticed a leak coming from the water heater! 😦 Turns out it needed to be replaced a year ago. Don't worry, landlord got it fixed asap.

Reppin' Canada at the gym

Tuesday evening Zach and I shot another video to add to Alan's choreography portfolio. This was a bit more complicated because it was completely dark and there was an outfit change.

Untitled
It was fun to play with lighting and a generator, but the shoot did run pretty long…it was about 3 hours which is long when dancers have to actually dance.

Everybody pooped and ready to go

He’s getting way too fuzzy

Weirdly the 405 was totally empty. This is notoriously the worst freeway in LA (or at least top 3), and to see it completely empty on my side felt like a zombie apocalypse…

Another day in class, another box of food from the Co-op. ALSO, turns out the “chicken” I frequently get was vegan chicken…couldn’t tell!

*Whew* what a weekend.

Much love friends.
