in the past few days I've watched two indie films. the first one was timed, which was cute and had a good soundtrack, trapeze swinger-iron and wine is just one. tonight I watched breaking upwards..the movie itself was weird and probably not the best but I was so mind blown by the videography. it was art, photography, and pure talent. so great.
I almost feel like emailing that guy to tell him he did a amazing job.
when I was 15, I died to have my room pink. after persuading my parents to paint it bright, and obnoxious pink..they finally cave him. now being 18, feeling how weird it is to remember that age, I have slowly grown out of the pink. the only reason I'm not totally anxious to change it is because all of the things on my walls.
post cards, polaroids, cool magazine cut outs, bible verses from birthday cards, tags from clothing, favorite quotes, coffee shops magnets and stickers, paper cutouts I made into some art, art institute catelog designs, concert posters and tick stubs, pictures, band stickers, photoshoot pictures, tickets, fake tattoos, patches for clothing, old pictures, and some of my photography "publications.
all things that meant something to me that I wanted to paste it to my wall, to see and remember * these photos are distorted colors
artifacts of my life that I hold very dearly, I would sad if I lost them. I wouldn't trade these for anything, other than maybe give them to my husband as a token of my dedication...something like that :P for now, I'M EIGHTEEN and I'm having so much fun :)
When people tell me how they switch their major every other day, almost, I always thought they were crazy and how much it probably sucks to not know what they want to do...but lately I find myself doing the same thing. As for this semester I am majoring in Sociology, which I love. I find that my brain completely functions like a sociologist and I just understand the material. Yet so many people discourage me about it because they all tell me "all you're ever going to get with that degree is teaching". I would love to be the exception to the rule, but I just don't know. My dream major is nutritional science, or whatever it is called but I HATE natural sciences and math, only because I don't get them...as much as I try, it is not for me. So I find myself stuck, because something I love is holding me back by the lame things you have to pass (which honestly, I'll tell you, I don't have enough dedication by the lifestyle I live)
What do I do!
I'm so lost.
Photography is something I have a natural talent for and would consider myself good at it...but since I've already been doing it for over 3 years now, and have a huge portfolio, I don't feel it's necessary to get a degree in it. Some tell me I'm wrong, but why get a degree in something that I already can do. I'd rather get a degree for something a little more practical and have more options to be successful.
Psychology, no. Anthropology, I like...but no. Nursing or being a doctor, noooo. Fashion, business, engineering, no no no. I feel like enviornmental-ish majors are going to be in great need for eventually by the time I graduate.
All I want in life is to be in love, with my career, the person I marry, the places I travel too, and the people I meet, help and learn from. Honestly, I don't even care to be making a ton of money, it's not for me...I just want a really crazy cool career(s).
I am way too busy to be updating this every single day. With my two jobs, going to school, photoshoots, and trying to fit in all my friends in between I simply have no time to update this hence the lack of posts that have been made in two weeks. So I've decided that I am going to post when I want too, and about things that I want too rather then almost feeling forced to do it.
here is what I have been up to lately, a few birthdays, a few parties, a few photo shoots, surprise phone calls, feeling a little more inspired, eating different cooked vegetables everyday, school and work. it's been fun, and BUSY! (more to come)
