99 Problems — #4 Strangers touch me.

One Saturday morning on a downtown Los Angeles walking tour, a grey-haired man in a grey pin-striped suit touched me as he passed by. Technically, it was more of a shoulder grab followed by a question.

John Williams and the Hollywood Bowl

Upon first arriving to Los Angeles, Cory suggested we go see John Williams live at the Hollywood Bowl. I agreed because I trust Cory’s judgements and also because I happen to enjoy unknown adventures. Not to mention a few days prior to the offer, my curiosity was peaked when I overheard a stranger mention the outdoor venue was a…

A Vegan Vacation

Cory (or should I say my fiancé) recently decided to do a 5-day Pressed Juice cleanse to kick start a new vegan eating regimen. Before committing to the juice, Cory ate meat. So why the sudden dietary change?  To his credit, being vegan is something he’s talked about becoming for quite some time now for […]
