I flew back to LA for my thesis defense. For people who actually have a life outside of academia--God bless you, everyone--this is pretty much the last stage of your doctorate before you submit your already-finished dissertation to the graduate school for formatting. Once that's done, you're officially, absolutely, completely done with your PhD. But LB + I wouldn't have come to LA just for business. We also wanted to visit some of our favorite haunts in LA too + wax nostalgic about our time in this crazy, majestic, polluted, fantastical little city of self-creators.
Here are a few snapshots of our too-short time back in the place we once called home during my grad school days at USC:
