From Las Vegas To Hawaii
A Journey of Self-Discovery
Feeling lost and confused in today's oppressive society? Need an escape from institutional forces such as marriage, motherhood, and the social construct of femininity? Take this two-week journey and discover who you truly are.
Your journey begins in Las Vegas...
If the post office is not to your fancy, consider visiting the Hoover Dam or one of those quaint, picturesque towns between Death Valley and the Nevada Line. Sometimes all you need is to feel a force larger than yourself or to remember where exactly you came from. The possibilities are endless, and by the time the moment's come for you to continue your journey, you'll realize you'll be dying to go back.
Next move on to the rich and vibrant culture of Southern California.
If you think your life is not put together, throw yourself into the male dominated world of office warehouses. Take a tour of this bleak landscape and think about your life in perspective as you avoid injury from machinery falling apart as quickly as your life. The social construct of what it means to be a woman has probably forced you to put on a blank face and try to get through your days on a sort of auto-pilot in a form of self-preservation. If that is the case, the Warehouse Tour is perfect for you. The chaos of the masculine world may be the perfect contrast to the exaggerated, superficial feminine mystique that surrounds you on a daily basis. Who knows what you may find during the Warehouse Tour, there may even be a new budding romance waiting for you just around the corner, waiting to serenade you with the soothing sounds of a broken harmonium.
The giant red "T" of Thriftimart is one of the most iconic sites of Southern California life. Come visit this classic scene to remind yourself that the journey of self discovery does not necessarily have to be a grand adventure, but can also be seen as a casual occurrence. The life of a woman is structured and over-bearing enough. Women are told how they should feel and how to carry on their relationships, and often times, they are criticized for not following the norm. Immerse yourself in the Thriftimart Tour in order to escape the obtrusive structure of what society thinks it should mean for you to be a woman. Take some control of your life by participating in capitalistic exchanges, and, of course, take advantage of Smart Choices new promotion where you can exchange purchases for frequent flyer miles. All that stands between you and the prospect of unlimited means of escape is a few thousands packs of pudding.
What better place to waste away your days than at a fully furnished apartment on Fountain Avenue? Forget about the superficial life found in Beverly Hills, and instead spend your days lounging around in your robe, smoking a joint, and catching up with the day's news. Fountain Avenue is the perfect escape from all the factors of your life that are dragging you down. Sometimes, all you need is to drag a lounge chair outside and sleep on the balcony until it's too cold to stay outside anymore. Fountain Avenue is the perfect place when you are stuck in a state of liminality. It is not somewhere you live, but simply somewhere you stay. Take a few days to clear your head, father your thoughts, and figure out what things in life are truly most important to you. Take a step back from your husband, your friends, your lovers. Take some time for yourself at Fountain Avenue.
