#TRAVELJOURNEY: Disneyland CA

I’m back!!!!! I know you missed me 😛

Over the weekend, I went on a crazy Disneyland adventure in LA with my college dorm. So many people in my dorm were like, “oh my gosh, I’m never been to a Disneyland, I’m so excited!” Meanwhile, this summer I rushed to Disneyland Shanghai, and proceeded to tell myself that I have relived my childhood and am ready to move on. Then, I saw that the ticket for Disneyland LA was heavily subsidized by my dorm, and was like lol I don’t mind reliving it again. Without further ado, Disneyland LA 2017!

For labor day weekend, I went into the mountains of Colorado to attend the esteemed Telluride Film Festival (43rd Year).

#TRAVELJOURNEY: Tim Burton Exhibition, Shanghai

Last week, before returning to the United States, I went with my mom to Tim Burton’s exhibition The World of Tim Burton in XinTianDi (新天地), Shanghai. My first exposure with Tim Burton was when I watched Sweeney Todd back in middle school – the simultaneous creepiness and adorability in his characters have always captivated me. So, when a friend told me about his exhibition in Shanghai, I knew it was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I could not skip. Like this post if you are a Tim Burton fan!
