Los Angeles time 11:23 pm.
Is when you feel your ugliest and sickest you get the most attention.
So earlier today I went to Santa Monica even though I wasn't feeling good, to buy a jacket. I have had my black leather jacket from Rag & Bone for four years now, and I saw one that I liked from Zara in wine red online. On top of that it was only 10% of what I paid for my leather jacket four years ago. No, I would never pay 2000$ but it was a gift from the host family I was working for back then, anyway- I thought to my self, I might as well try the jacket I saw and I fell in love. After I bought the jacket I went outside to sit down and take the tags off so I could use it, and answer some emails. I went to sit down on a bench and this guy took him camera in his hands and wore pointing his camera at me, and I was like "is he trying to take pictures of me?" He acted so weird. So he said " uhm hey, hello, hi there. I am photographer taking pictures of beautiful people in Los Angeles for my Instagram and I wanted to take a pic of you." I was like yeah sure whatever. I asked him " do you want me to sit or stand?" Cause I was already on the beach.. He said; you can stand- but what are you gonna do? I was like well it's not like I am gonna jump and dance- didn't you ask to take a pic of me? I am just gonna stand up and down like a normal person to take the picture.. He was like " ok, good idea.” Duuh??! My gosh I felt so bad for the guy! He was just standing there and tried to have a conversation with me, but he didn't know what to say- he said " my day is so slow, how is urs?" I said it's great. He then asked " my day is so slow, I am bored.. I told him to go to Santa Monica Pier and take pictures... He looked at his camera and said " oh- my camera is weird so you know what's wrong? I was like uhm- you said you wore a photographer and you ask me? Then he looked at me weird and walked off.”
Five minutes later it comes an Asian guy up to me and say "are you German?" I said no, Norwegian.. He said you are so pretty, I saw you from far away. I was like aww, thanks. So then we talked for about five minutes because he has obviously been in Norway before- which is where I am from. So I guess when you feel like shit, got a running nose, can barly breath, blow you nose every five min, have a bad headache etc- that´s when you get the most attention. It happened before. I was not wearing makeup when going out once, and people said how beautiful I was.. Funny!
After I was done looking around in Santa Monica I went to Manhattan Beach to have sushi at my favorite restaurant, and we also watched the sunset! I am still feeling very sick, coughing, runny nose and a headache. Not fun, but I had to get some air today. I am leaving Los Angeles for a few months and I had to at least get one more shot of the Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach living before I left.
What do you guys think of the jacket? It is from Zara and it was 69$ or 76$ with taxes.
Now I am off to watch my new favorite show "Nikita" on Netflix. Goodnight 💙
