living life one day at a time

the online scrapbook of a not quite ordinary wanderlusting soul

Day Five - Wednesday
Roamed around the Asian Art Museum, then continued roaming around town. (And I think my camera got locked on one of the iPhone camera filters, so everything I got from those couple of hours looks all pseudo-hippie-ish)

I had asked Jolie a few days ago if I could fly with her, and she told me she had never taken a passenger up before but would think about it. When I arrived at the photo shoot, I told her that I mentioned to my mother that I might fly with her and that my mother did not like the idea one bit. Jolie laughed it off. Now, as I am watching her kick off her stilettos (she pilots barefoot) and step up onto the wing of her little white plane, she stops for a second and stares at me standing off to the side. There is a glint in her eye. A big smile spreads across her face. “Let’s go scare your mother,” she says.

Only as I am jammed in the back next to Leibovitz, bumping along the dinky little runway, does the reality of what I’m doing sink in. I imagine the headline: ANGELINA JOLIE AND ANNIE LEIBOVITZ DIE IN PLANE CRASH NEAR LAS VEGAS. I try to remember who went down with Patsy Cline, but I can’t. I am about to become a trivia question. I tell myself this will be a suitably fabulous way to die, and just like that we are in the air, floating above the desert, and my nerves are gone. “I’ll do some tight turns,” says Jolie. “Maddox likes it when there are g-forces.” [x]

Day Five - Wednesday
The only day I’d set aside to head into town! Started the morning off with a simple but really good breakfast at Craftsman & Wolves, and hipster-watc- I mean people-watched and eavesdropped on morning conversations. Found a thrift store just a couple of blocks from my apartment, which really resembled some of the thrift stores in the suburbs in Melbourne. Also found more awesome street art and typography along the way, before ending up at Asian Art Museum.

the weekly challenge - almost eow for week 2

Still failing at my own challenge, but will keep making it a point to document things here and keep myself going. Here’s some good things that came out of last week -

Week 2:
- Started familiarizing myself with Final Cut again when I had to manually sync audio with video for a tutorial for work
- Watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which gave me a new sense of pride and privilege to be in the VFX industry
- Am learning more and about various disciplines, both the cool techy side of things, as well as the people here (Work-related progress)
- 2nd week of pescatarianism! Only cheat day on Sundays - am aiming to do a month of this for now - Caught up with burpees (missed two or three days), and am only behind by a day’s worth of burpees now
- Said yes to doing two upcoming performances, and rehearsals began this week (Read: aching.all.over.)
- Might start contributing to a friend’s magazine
- Applied for leave for October for an exciting trip!

To Do:
- Need to start writing again
- Edit that video and get it out!
- Keep doodling!
