MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 16-22, 2016!

I documented a day for work, took my little cousins back to Disneyland for their first Space Mountain experience, prepared for a 10 day documentary shoot in Utah, and made too much coconut curry.

Enjoy!

(Apologies for the late posting, I’ve been in Utah on set for the past 10 days or so, the wifi has been spotty!)

I got to work early to follow around a librarian in the Research Institute. Basically, I did an ADIML but for work! Pretty neat.

Complete with coconut quinoa

Untitled
Yum! Pretty good! The curry is pretty thin, I guess it makes sense it took about 45 minutes to make in total, but pretty flavorful!

Untitled
Cheeks are acting up…*great* but at least my new fav co-worker and I have matching cups.

My mom sent me home like this… 🙂

Untitled
The next morning we were up and off to meet the film crew at Zach’s aunt’s house in the Valley. Basically, for the last few months I’ve been helping Zach get this documentary project about his Nana, her 90th birthday, and his Mormon family in Utah off the ground. He hired a producer/cameraman, then a second camera man, and a sound guy…and we are off to Utah for 10 days.

Untitled
First we headed to the Valley to interview his mom’s oldest sibling. The man was to interview all 7 siblings plus his grandparents and to capture the feelings, thoughts, and festivities around the 90th b-day.

Untitled
I went on a grocery run while the crew checked into our motel.

Untitled
By the time I got back, everybody was sufficiently sketched out. I guess people (who appeared to be on something) were loitering around the car, checking out the equipment, asking about who we were etc. etc. and more were coming out of rooms, driving up, etc.

Untitled
We didn’t want to leave the equipment there, and didn’t feel safe so made the last minute decision to check out and stay at the family lodge.

I just have to add the ONE yelp review this motel has…which we stupidly checked after the fact:
The is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. First off we were charged extra for checking in late. Once we got in the room we found the following, black stain in floor, fist size blood stain on comforter, mold and bugs in bathroom, a large strange orange stain on the wall as well as what appeared to be a baby foot print on the wall. I strongly recommend staying somewhere else.

Thanks for reading!

Much love friends.
