MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: AUGUST 15-21, 2016!
My summer intern’s last week, popsicles, hosting a periscope at the Getty Villa, bringing my gecko to work, seeing a magician (and doubting my ability to love magic), and meeting my friend Lena in New York for the start of our 5 day vacation in the Big Apple.

Enjoy!

Geffen Playhouse!

Untitled
Untitled
Drinking my gin and tonic, mentally prepping to see an illusionist, Derek DelGuadio.

Untitled
Untitled
We entered and picked from a large wall what we’d like to be thought of, aspirationally. I picked cobbler – skilled, hard-working…humble.

Untitled
And took our seats. Honestly, I don’t now enough about magic, illusionists, trends in those areas, etc. The show was more of a storytelling hour with a few tricks, wrapped around the thematic thread of real v. perception of your identity. I hear so much about identity and these things, maybe cuz of the art school thing, that it wasn’t that fascinating of a discussion and I wanted more razzle dazzle! Maybe I just want the ooohs and aaahs of a typical magic show…like a total nerd.

Untitled
Untitled
One of his tricks did involve disappearing a gold brick to a random intersection (determined by the audience) and afterwards we drove to see if it was there….and IT WAS!

Untitled
His staff definitely had the time to drive it there, but I appreciate the attention to detail. 🙂
