things I wound up doing in LA:

-lost 3 pounds

-got a plastic 90′s choker necklace

-bought a butt ton of work out clothes

-did pilates 5x and worked out every day but two

-made a minimal number of ill-advised sexual decisions (1)

-rewatched the GoT finale and enjoyed it much more

-bought a Malin & Goetz cannabis candle to bring back to England

-avoided any full-blown fights with my mother (also with my brother)

-visited San Fran with my mother and avoided any full-blown fights THERE too

-got a book of Lydia Davis short stories and a collected works of Robert Hass which I now can’t fit in my suitcase to take home

-developed a heat rash on approximately 45% of my body, including but not limited to my neck, my elbows, and the backs of my knees

-got extremely sunburnt despite religiously applying the best sunblock available (Shishiedo etc., also got really bad skin irritation from applying some cheaper sunblocks, i.e. Trader Joes, Neutrogena, etc. All around sunburn catastrophe)

-saw Ghostbusters super high (Ghostblazers?) and fell in love with Kate McKinnon all over again

-watched most of the second season of Sex and the City 

-did a surprising amount of research for my dissertation (re: more than none)

-realised that I need to make my priority myself and my work rather than toxic and energy-consuming friends or a manufactured obsession with a boy (though boy is very good, have calmed down, will see him when home, I think that now that I’m not freaking out over the idea of having to be in a relationship because it’s my go to mode of being, things with him will be much more fun and relaxed, because I really like him and don’t need to put pressure on him/us/me to make things Extremely Serious extremely quickly)

-ate at a fuckton of AMAZING restaurants! I got absurdly lucky! I got taken to Elf, A.O.C., Republique (my best friend works there and got us a discount AHHH!) Fig and Olive, Yank Sing for dim sum in SF & Mozza Osteria. I also went to M Cafe, FEAST FROM THE EAST, Larchmont Sandwich Shop, and I got a lottt of vegan pastries from Babycakes and By Chloe. Also saw Kiernan Shipka at Go Get Em Tiger. Her eyebrows are fantastic. Also drank several extremely over-priced iced lattes at GGET and hung out with the OBC Freddie from Chess 

-drunkenly vomited kimchee and vegetable Korean porridge on my friend’s bath-mat! 

-went to Whole Foods SUPER HIGH and actually freaked out at how many food options there are in this beautiful country

-I didn’t manage to get: cold sesame noodles from Yang Chow, my mom’s chicken Marbella, any korean barbeque BUT ALL IN ALL THIS WAS A PRETTY GREAT TRIP
