Last week was so discouraging. It was finals week for school so already things were less than comfortable and then my car broke. Straight up made a horrible noise and then stopped functioning. There were other minor setbacks thrown into the mix. My Iphone camera stopped working. It went all purple and dark. After a few bad days right in a row, I needed to put a stop to my woes. So, as the nerd that I am, I decided the perfect remedy would be a museum visit. I took the Metro straight to the Grand Ave MOCA and then onwards to the Geffen. An established art institution displaying counter-culture (I was at the Art in the Streets exhibit) brings out more people in LA than a Monet or Van Gogh or Picasso. Half the time I didn't know what I was looking at since I am not up on my street artists. But by getting lost in the moment; I felt better.
