2018-04-09: What an eventful Monday! Early in the morning, my co-worker Mary picked me up and gave me a ride to a big business meeting we were having with a client in Calabasas, California. Calabasas is up in the Santa Monica Mountains which were very scenic to drive through. It's not too far from Malibu, where I was for a mansion tour just a couple months ago. Business First The meeting was a great success. I ...

2018-02-04: Well, it happened. I am very definitely sick on this trip. I think with all the exertion at Rumble, plus all the walking and being in close contact with other people on the train yesterday, I've made my system primed and ready to catch this bug. I slept in later than planned while Alex left on her own to go hang out with her cousin Bogdan again. This worked out anyway, because I wanted to let the two of them ...

2018-02-01: Alex and I went to New York City for a long weekend at the beginning of February (right after an eventful end of January). It was my second time in New York State (the first being when I visited Lauren in Rochester) and my first trip ever to NYC. The Trip Begins We actually had quite the hassle getting to LAX in the first place. As luck would have it, we got a Lyft driver who was brand new to the app, and she ...

2018-01-25 - 29: My good friend Lauren flew into Los Angeles to visit me for a few days. She's a college classmate I know from Chicago, but now she lives in Rochester, NY. I had visited her last year, so it was her turn this year. Lauren is heavily into the lolita fashion culture, especially gothic lolita, so she wore all kinds of fantastic outfits while she was here. You'll see it in most of the photos of her below - ...
