a few recent moments

I've had a whirlwind of a month: from joining freak shows, meeting celebrities, seeing my best friend for the first time in four months. I'm trying so hard to remember to take out my camera more often, but at the same time fully enjoy moments without the use of technology. I'm sure there's an easy balance between the two, I just haven't figured it out yet. Here's just a glimpse of the past few weeks, in photo form.

I can't go a week without visiting the rooftop of the Met. Are the drinks overpriced and is it way too hot to be on a rooftop during the summer? Yes. Is it worth it? Of course.

I recently went to Vulture Fest to meet Lisa Kudrow (drunkenly, in a stairwell, with my new Irish friend - but that's a different story!)

We decided to check out the Coney Island Freak show and of course they called me up on stage. I had to pull a sword out of someone's throat in front of the crowd. Just my luck!
