museum of broken relationships.

let’s dive into LA pics with this cheerful headline. :)))

first thing’s first though—so i landed in LA in the middle of the night between friday and saturday, and after spending one night at my friend will’s place, i woke up to a sunny santa monica, and jumped in a cab to this green café in hollywood.

to meet up with this fave!!! siri! who i left in san francisco, but who i convinced to come down to LA for 24h. reunited, yay yay! felt like we hadn’t seen each other in 2 months—in fact, it was 2 weeks…

siri had a scramble and i had two avocado toasts, one with a sunny side up egg and one with sundried tomatoes. yummm.

then we walked a block away, to the museum of broken relationships that i had heard of and really wanted to visit.

this museum is crowd-sourced—people send in artifacts from their relationships (can be romantic ones, but also friendships, family, etc) together with a story. so many painful ones, that probably speak better for themselves:

“broken” ugh hurts just looking at it tbh

this was so painful ….. but at least good to know that people everywhere have these feelings. i’ve not been wanting to talk about it, but i have been hurting over something for quite a while now. it’s getting better everyday, but being in an environment like this certainly brings it back (……).

oh well. here i am looking happy anyways because life goes on, the sun is shining, you’re with your bestie in LA and after this we popped champagne and partied instead, but that deserves its own post!

mao

första titten från LA! mötte äntligen upp med siri efter 2 veckor som kändes som 2 månader. vi frullade i solen och gick sen hit — till museum of broken relationships. så vackert men smärtsamt alltihop. folk får liksom skicka in sina prylar från sina tidigare förhållanden med en berättelse. </3

ont såklart men också fint på nåt sätt att man inte är själv ju och sådär. men sen hade vi inte tid att deppa längre för vi hade champagne att dricka och en festival att dansa på! men det kommer snart. puss!
