Sunday #27: Angel City

Arts District, Mural, Los Angeles
Mural in the Arts District of Los Angeles.

It's the weekend before Thanksgiving.  I, for one, am glad that this coming week is on the shorter side.  I'm writing up this post before I head into lab for a few hours.  However, it's chilly, I'm cozy, and it's hard to leave the house.

ANGEL CITY BREWERY

 

I went out last to the Arts District in Los Angeles with my roommates/friends last night for a bar crawl.  I don't drink, but I do like good company!  We went to The Pie Hole to get pie and then Angel City Brewery.  I went pretty snap happy all night and ate A LOT of potatoes in the form of tots and fries.  See, got my vegetables in!  The Arts District is a pretty cool area: there's a lot of murals, spray paint art on the sidewalk, and plenty of interesting bars.  We ended up at Wurstküche before heading home, buzzed and with bellies full.

INVISALIGN


I am on my last set of trays for my Invisalign braces!  I had braces as a teenager, but made the terrible mistake of  not wearing my retainers so my teeth moved out of place.  Moving teeth led to occlusal trauma.  Hence, Invisalign.  I got fitted for a permanent retainer on my bottom teeth that will sit under my retainer trays.  Apparently, a metal wire costs a pretty penny.  Between the metal retainer and the three plane tickets I have to buy to visit families in December, my bank card is crying.  However, I've got straighter teeth now, so yay?  Also, maybe I should've become a dentist!

THE SCIENTIST

 

My best friend, Gina, defended her thesis and is now a bona-fide Doctor of Philosophy in chemistry.  We met in our undergraduate years which seems so long ago.  In that time, she's published, grown as a scientist, and person.  Congratulations (because I know you read here)!  Proud and happy for you!

WRITING

 

I had the opportunity to write my first guest posts recently.  Check out my makeup decluttering tips over at Gweni's blog, G Beauty.  I also wrote about positive ways to motivate yourself to exercise at Michelle's blog, Daisybutter.  Huge thank you to both Gweni and Michelle — this was an opportunity I really appreciated!

  4. The Arts District (from what I've seen in YT videos ha) always seem so ~cool~ and I've heard about the two places you went to, especially the pie place mmm! Also yowch to having to get Invisalign even after getting braces; I've been wearing my retainers for about 10 years now after my braces because I'm so scared of my teeth moving... my boyfriend did what you did and now he has crooked teeth again so he probably just wasted time and money having braces done haha!

  6. Gorgeous photos! I did the same with braces but getting the metal wire fitted was the best thing! Meant they have stayed put since, and it lasts so long, mine has been going strong for 8 years now!!
