162/365. Take a Step Back. on Flickr.
This photo, in particular means a lot to me. Firstly, because I haven’t taken a personal photo is…how long? 3 months? So much for a 365 project.
Secondly, because the idea has been resonating in my head for so long. Usually I make up my ideas on the spot, whereas this one I had time to think about, time to analyse, and time to know exactly what I wanted to do.
I’m in an incredibly transitional phase of my life, much like many of my peers right now. In college, honestly, I don’t have much of a social life. I haven’t made that ‘bestest friend’ or anyone I’m really close with. The people I spend the most time with here are from my hometown. And I have been struggling with the social aspect of college- the fact that everyone around me seems to have differing interests than myself. I know the friends I want are out there, I just have yet to find them.
Anyway… there was a period of about two weeks where I ate every meal alone, and while most of the time I enjoy being alone, it got quite lonesome. So I stopped moping and tried to be proactive about the situation. And despite some pretty heavy emotional setbacks, I feel optimistic.
oh, yeah…the photo.
I have an entire analyzation done in my head. I know what this photo means to me. But I’ll leave that up to you to interpret on your own
I do! I think??
(maybe if I get off tumblr I can do it)
Holy mother of god my photo has surpassed 10,000 notes
There was one night where it was ridiculously foggy and my boyfriend was kind enough to pose. I just didn’t think I was capturing it well enough
Sort of… Not terribly often though, and not ones that I’m particularly proud of
I’ll show a few screenshots
(They’re not really that overexposed)
Accidentally posted to the wrong blog first. Oops

there was this one time I saw the light in the dorm bathrooms was disgustingly pretty and so I tried to shoot in there, but the whole factor of it being a public bathroom turned out to be pretty awkward
buying some nerd paraphernalia and maybe they will just come to me!
I NEED TO SHOOT.
I NEED TO SHOOT SOMEONE WHO IS NOT ME. AND I’M DRIVING MYSELF CRAZY WITH ALL THESE IDEAS I WANT TO DO.
BUT I CAN’T. BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW ANYBODY TO ASK.
so this happened for my wedding album on pass in two days. holy mother of god.
I probably spent a total of 5 hours attempting to make a Pricing Guide for my site. But it turns out I have absolutely no graphic design abilities whatsoever. At all. I WILL PAY YOU MONEY. WHO WANTS TO MAKE A COMMISSION.

Not entirely sure how it works? And I desperately want to try out a proof box, but that just depends on if the bride and groom want it. Anywhoo! This took all day!
"best before" means you can still eat it three weeks after, right?
This is me, its 2am, and I’m working on a very long research paper. I don’t drink coffee, so my usual substitute is tea or snapple. 7/11 doesn’t carry Snapple, and they ran out of my tea so I had to go with gatorade. ITS GOT ELECTROLYTES?! Everytime I open it it spurts in my face and I manage to forget every. time.
Hey look, thats my sleeping roommate. I don’t know how she hasn’t strangled me yet but I’m very thankful she’s a good person.
Earlier today my speech coach (who is a grad student) was complaining about having to find 10 sources for her paper. And I asked what kind of sources she meant, they’re the same type as mine- academic, journal articles, no websites. AND IM LIKE HAHAHA I HAVE TO FIND 30. MINIMUM. ahahahah. ha. ha. ha.
