A DAY IN MY LIFE: SEPTEMBER 14, 2017!

A day that starts in a hotel room in Denver, Colorado and ends back in my apartment in Los Angeles. I snuck in a last minute visit to the Clyfford Still Museum before flying back to Los Angeles and being babied with a free ride home and black cod made at home.

Enjoy!

Untitled
Good morning from Denver, Colorado! This is a fully documented day—you can see glimpses of Denver from the week I was there over here.

Untitled
Untitled
*Tired, but is committed to documenting* Was here for an intensive conference full of day-long workshops and today I head back to Los Angeles.

Untitled
Hotel vibes.

Untitled
A view of Denver from in the downtown sky.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Feeling a little lazy, I want to fart around in bed since I really have nowhere to be.

Untitled
Untitled
In bed with my coffee enjoying some shameless iPhone games. *Shame free chilling*

Untitled
Untitled
Dark moody bathroom with the dark moody hotel shampoo. I wash my bangs.

Untitled
Travel tubes, not enough lotion for me.

Untitled
Slowly getting ready for the day.

Untitled
Chaos from only a few days in this room.

Untitled
Untitled
Dressed for the day finally.

Untitled
Untitled
I’ve been wanting to eat at the cute restaurant in the hotel since I got here, but have resisted to try other Denver food the days before. So today is my chance.

Untitled
Spooky shadow

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
To the lobby

Untitled
Untitled
Breakfast is served out in the living room lobby area.

Untitled
The Nickel

Untitled
Untitled

Untitled
Coffee

Untitled
Breakfast!

Untitled
Look at this beautiful masterpiece. Roasted veggies and mushrooms with a beautiful egg on top in a yummy green chili sauce.

Untitled
Pron.

Untitled
Rich and delicious

Untitled
Happy to try at least the breakfast menu.

Untitled
Untitled
Back to my room

Untitled
Need to get this packing organized.

Untitled
Untitled
Ah, a beautifully packed bag.

Untitled
Untitled
Packed up and ready to head out.

Untitled
9:30 AM

Untitled
Untitled
I still have a few hours until my flight and I really wanted to sneak in a visit to the Clyfford Still Museum.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Driving through downtown Denver

Untitled
“Don’t walk in this area at night…”

Untitled
Made it! A little before they opened actually. Waited outside patiently…

Untitled
A little about Clyfford Still. He was an Abstract Expressionist painter, working on large canvases with commercial paints like Jackson Pollock. Clyfford Still is a little lesser known but he’s important to art historians and his contemporaries, including Rothko.

Untitled
The building itself is concrete and really beautiful.

Untitled
Untitled
I was the first visitor into the museum, but there were already school groups doing tours with the gallery teachers when I got upstairs.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
So beautiful. Huge colorful canvases on the gray textured walls.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Some juicy details

Untitled
Untitled
All alone!

Untitled
Untitled
Paints and pigments!

Untitled
Children describing their interpretation of the abstract paintings was such a joy to eavesdrop on.

Untitled
Beauty

Untitled
Clear painting storage. You could peek into storage and the conservation studio.

Untitled
Potty break

Untitled
Called a Lyft

Untitled
Untitled
On the way to the airport. Everybody scared me about traffic out to the airport since it’s pretty far away from downtown Denver. But it was really a breeze.

Untitled
Rocky Mountains in the distance

Untitled
Untitled
Sooo have you heard the conspiracy theories about the Denver airport? It’s all pretty suspicious. Firstly, this airport was opened in 1995 but was $2 billion over budget. It was also funded by the “New World Airport Commission” which isn’t real! Read more about the conspiracy here, it’s all fun I promise.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Relative to the size of Denver, it’s also just a giant airport. There’s theories that there are secret tunnels for government officials in times of disaster. Murals also point to the apocalyse. Coincidence?!!?

Untitled
Trains between gates

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Tornados?!!?! Never experienced one. Terrifying thinking of one. Ahh.

Untitled
Untitled
Walked past this and thought “I love Colon?”

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Hungry for snacks, my greatest joy.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Waiting to board the flight, reading this article about the Denver Airport conspiracies (a different article than what I linked before), and eating my jerky.

Untitled
Threw on my pretzel socks for warmth

Untitled
Reading a friend’s script on a phone not ideal but hey do what you gotta do.

Untitled
Boarding

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Got lucky with this weird seat that is where the aisle bends so I get some extra leg room.

Untitled
Cozy and ready for take off

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
From Denver to Los Angeles

Untitled
Yup, I’m back.

Untitled
Landing.

Untitled
Untitled
3:00 PM

Untitled
De-plane

Untitled
Sad LAX bathrooms

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Out to the pick up zone

Untitled
I’ve been gone a week, gotta alert Kiki I’m back.

Untitled
Patiently waiting

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
My ride is here

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Back to home!

Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Whenever Zach finds this beer he has to get it.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Denver really was lovely. I enjoy a good solo trip every once in a while, even if it’s for work.

Untitled
LOVE WHEN ZACH DOES CHORES HE’S SO GOOD AT CHORES.

Untitled
A+ CHORES!!!

Untitled
I got some pacakges while I was away.

Untitled
Creams and soap for my eczema, an ongoing life struggle. And some lightweight pants from Uniqlo (and a tank top) for my trip to Southeast Asia.

Untitled
Hmm, should I unpack? Meh.

Untitled
Much needed change to loungewear.

Untitled
Charging up batteries

Untitled
Lounge time

Untitled
No shame I love snacks more than life

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Dealing with some photo transfer and backing up photos.

Untitled
Not horrible!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
The light is changing in my work room, the photos slowly moving from memory card to hard drive.

Untitled
Tweedy got a bath.

Untitled
Untitled
He’s a monster

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Sunset in the neighborhood, I get in more comfy clothes.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Zach promised a homecooked welcome back dinner so I’ll loiter around and not help him as he fulfills that promise.

Untitled
Untitled
Miso cod!

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Miso cod, kale, and some sake.

Untitled
Broad City is back.

Untitled
Untitled
Kiki and Ders came by to drop off precious Peanut. They are out of town for the weekend so I get the joy of watching her.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
I want Peanut to love me but she insists on sitting on Zach

Untitled
Peanut has to be touching you and it’s the best.

Untitled
Sufi ignoring me

Untitled
NUT

Untitled
Untitled
Unpacking my toiletries

Untitled
Untitled
Followed me into the bathroom

Untitled
Untitled
What a life

Untitled
Untitled
Pooped but I have three dogs with me so it’s great.

Untitled
Just freaking myself out about leeches cuz I can.

Untitled
Bed just around 11pm.

Good night world!

(I hope it isn’t the worst to get this post when I’m also eager to share about my trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. Just playing a bit of catch up!)

Much love friends.
