Corrupgentina

???

It’s been almost two years now since I embarked on my jour­ney to Argentina, and I still have not scrubbed through all the thou­sands of pic­tures I col­lected while abroad. Towards the end of my time there how­ever, one of my SD cards became cor­rupted — luck­ily after I had saved the pic­tures to my […]

I’m Going to Stare At a Cement Wall Now

People - Koko.jpg

This is from a con­cert I shot of local band — Koko. Above is the lead singer talk­ing under dim light­ing with some friends. I try not to com­plain too much, opti­mism is my per­sonal method of get­ting through dif­fi­cult things. Stress is too eas­ily attached to me like a mon­key rid­ing on my shoulders […]

This Is How My Head Feels

Things-Exploratorium.jpg

This is my friend Mur­ray. He passed away and is now over­com­ing his exhi­bi­tion­is­tic ten­den­cies by stand­ing naked at the Explorato­rium in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia. The dreaded Week 10 is upon us. Dooms­day as it is known across the La Jolla cam­pus of UCSD, stu­dents with eyes peeled open in wake of the ter­ror that is […]

Turkey Day

Bigger Asian Woman.jpg

This is a friend I ‘made’ in the streets of Chi­na­town in San Fran­cisco. She is not pleased to see me. Thanks­giv­ing is finally upon us. After 7 straight weeks of midterms, a new job, a cat steal­ing all of my atten­tion at home, and the flu for the past few weeks, my shoul­ders can be […]

I’m Sick In Bed, It Seems

People - Ivy

 The above is an unnamed friend (let’s call her Ivy), who attended a mas­quer­ade party at my house this sum­mer. The school year has begun, actu­ally it’s about to be over… this quar­ter at least. I’ve fallen behind on a lot of my oblig­a­tions I feel like, and it’s time for that to be cor­rected. I go […]

Asymmetrical

Places - Hallway

The above is the hall­way towards my French class in high school. I’ve walked it many times. If you don’t know me, I like sym­me­try. The cen­ter is where things belong. Wes Ander­son under­stands my taste and love of all things in the mid­dle right where you can see them and feel them. It’s that sweet […]

My Sink Has Too Many Flies

People - Kelsey

This is a trip­tych I made of my good friend Kelsey smok­ing a cig­a­rette in the San Telmo Fair in Buenos Aires. I could use a cig­a­rette. (Un)fortunately for me, I don’t smoke. Tea is my nico­tine, it soothes my head and makes me think straight… if only jobs allowed you to take a tea […]

Almost Done

Things - Cows

The pic­ture above is from Esquel, Argentina. I sneaked up on these cows in the mid­dle of a humon­gous field in a place I do not remem­ber. Looks like they caught me. They were not so amused.  Finals are upon me. I’ve donated to all my tax-deductible char­ity orga­ni­za­tions. My funds have been allo­cated and […]

So This Leaves Us in an Awkward Place

People - Eden and Sarah

The beau­ti­ful duo you see here two of the cur­rent loves of my life. They were as con­fused as I was when we took this in a fan­ci­ful day at the park in Buenos Aires.  So here goes num­ber two. It’s 4:16 am on this coast, Bon Iver slowly fil­ter­ing through my Lykke Li Pandora […]

One More Time

Music - Infected Mushroom

  This is Erez Eisen, the infected half of Infected Mush­room. They played at my school recently. Kind of like Daft Punk play­ing at my house?  sually when peo­ple have no idea what I’m talk­ing about, it’s time for me to go to sleep. Right now is one of those times, but instead let’s do some writ­ing. In […]
