MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 29–JUNE 4, 2017


Spending time with my parents and kitties, using the indoor grill approximately three times in one week, planning an upcoming trip, and doing some LA things (art opening, visiting the Natural History Museum, rooftop bars) and celebrating birthdays.

Enjoy!

This past week has been scary in many parts of the world for so many people—just wanted to acknowledge that I hope you reading this are doing okay, I’m thinking of you.

Untitled
Memorial Day in the US—we got the day off work. I carpool now with a colleague who is from France, and she was confused about Memorial Day vs. Veteran’s day. Memorial Day is a day to pay tribute to those who died while serving in the military, Veteran’s day is about acknowledging/honoring those who served in general.

Untitled
Met up with Kiki and Ders to do the Culver City Stairs

Untitled
They are so much fitter ahaha—both running up and not stopping. I’ll get there one day *whew*

Untitled
Some Sims 4 time before heading off for the day

Untitled
My mom has been asking about when she’s going to get to try out my grill—so we brought it over for grilling

Untitled
Stopped at the Korean market on the way—my dream bag of garlic.

Untitled
Goodies

Untitled
Home!

Untitled
My parents finally picked out colors to repaint the house. (Red didn’t make the cut)

Untitled
I prepped all my grilling stuff and my mom worked on making japchae

Untitled
Snooow

Untitled
Yum! Turned out delicious—tried out shrimp this time. Was good!

Untitled
Love making my mama happy

Little rainbow lights

Untitled
Bye for now

Untitled
A fire along the freeway (the fire department was already on the job but smoke was billowing across the freeway)

Untitled
My mom noticed on the back of my sweater was a tiny hole (moths?!?!) so I decided to wash all my sweaters just in case. And got cedar hanger things to go in the closets.

Untitled
My mom kindly bought me a new pair of red converse! I’ve had the pair on the right since working at summer camp. I used to get a new pair every year, wear it to school, and then destroy them at camp…but this last pair has lasted me so long. Weird that they aren’t so red anymore…

Untitled
Can’t Hardly Wait on the projector

Untitled
Untitled
Sweaters had to be laid out all over the kitchen because I didn’t want to dry them in the machine.

Untitled
It’s carpool day—which means we leave for work on her day at 7am.

Untitled
Nice and quiet

Untitled
Spent the morning prepping for Tristan’s surprise…

Untitled
PIZZA PARTY! His birthday was over the weekend and we did successfully surprise him ahah.

Untitled
Untitled
Mango and gyoza soup for dinner

Untitled
Hollywood

Untitled
Zach’s on an improv team and they were performing on the main stage, so I decided to be nice and come along.

Untitled
While Zeen went to warm up with his team, I went to a nearby pizza place and had a modelo and read my book my boss recommended to me hah.

Untitled
Untitled
Misty and rainy

Untitled
Untitled
Decided to wear my sparkly sweater after excavating everything in my closet and washing them.

Untitled
Untitled
Another cloudy day—keep them coming, weather gods! I’m not ready for the hot days yet.

Untitled
Cat face off

Untitled
Sufi ruining everything.

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki and I both had leftover meats, so we decided to do night two of grilling so I could use the rest of my supplies from Monday.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Getting a little better with the kimchi fried rice

Untitled
Decided to shine my shoes in the AM (tho I’m pretty sure two of these aren’t real leather OH WELL)

Untitled
Red shoes first day on the town

Untitled
Another cloudy day! Yes!

Untitled
Untitled
Got bundled up to head to an outdoor movie screening

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
First time checking out the Rooftop Cinema Club in Hollywood, they also do screenings in London and New York.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
The rooftop had a food stand and popcorn and a drinks stand, and it was so lovely and atmospheric.

Untitled
My first adult viewing of ET. As a kid I was so afraid of ET that I used to hide the video tape behind the other books in the bookcase. But it was TRULY so delightful.

Untitled
Untitled
Zach pulled out his endearing painting he made on a paint nite and shaved his facial hair into a gross mustache and soul patch for a day filming some sketches.

Untitled
Untitled
Had to make my own smoothie today boo!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Spent the morning editing Mexico photos

Colee is the queen of penpal-ing, she sent me a nice letter, so I worked on an illustration of her cat to send back

I look so turtle-like these days, but I made some effort to get ready for a b-day dinner.

One of my favorite thrifted items of all time

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Went up to the rooftop bar to meet everybody and have drinks before the reservation

Untitled
Set menu alert

Untitled
Bathroom yah

Untitled
I’ve been looking into traveling to Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and maybe Laos for two-ish weeks this fall. Starting my research quest with an outdated travel book from 2011 and reading blogs online.

Untitled
The other day I splurged and went online shopping. But my feet. Are so dang tiny!!! And the ASOS UK/US conversion meant I ordered the wrong size and they are way too big. Going to have to exchange.

Untitled
Post office errands! Sent Colee’s card and returned the shoes.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Something I didn’t return? This denim overall/dress thing and MAN I feel like a toddler and I’m loving it.

Untitled
Went with Tristan to the opening at the Underground Museum of a show about color. This piece by Felix Gonzalex-Torres had this accompanying wall text, “It is a fact people are discriminated against for being HIV positive. It is a fact the majority of the Nazi industrialists retained their wealth after war. It is a fact the night belongs to Michelob and Coke is real. It is a fact the color of your skin matters. It is a fact Crazy Eddie’s prices are insane. It is a fact that four colors red, black, green and white placed next to each other in any form are strictly forbidden by the Israeli army in the occupied Palestinian territories. This color combination can cause an arrest, a beating, a curfew, a shooting, or a news photograph. Yet it is a fact that these forbidden colors, presented as a solitary act of consciousness here in SoHo, will not precipitate a similar reaction. From the first moment of encounter, the four color canvases in this room will ‘speak’ to everyone. Some will define them as an exercise in color theory, or some sort of abstraction. Some as four boring rectangular canvases hanging on the wall. Now that you’ve read this text, I hope for a different message.”

It was my first time at the Underground Museum—check it out if you haven’t been and you’re in LA.

Untitled
Grocery shopping for “Grillmore Girls” our themed Gilmore Girls grilling and screening event.

In true Gilmore fashion, we decided on burgers, tacos, fried chicken and snacks

We decided on two hard hitting episodes, “A-Tisket, A-Tasket” the basket bidding episode from Season 2 and also the finale of 2 which WOW it’s so painful haha.
