My last real post was over two years ago. I accidentally logged on to this account when trying to re-log in to my current one.
I’m sure none of you will see this, and most of my active following is long gone now (either deactivated or unfollowed). But I guess here’s an update:
I’ve since graduated with my degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Photography, and a minor in Art History. I am currently engaged to a wonderful man whom I met on Omegle of all things. I am living with him in a small apartment in northwest Chicago. We’re getting married in August of 2015. I have two pets. Two adorable hedgehogs that I love dearly. I am working as a nanny for a paycheck, but I’m trying to get involved with a nonprofit that is working on creating an app to give people walking tours of the public art throughout the city. I am NOT a wedding photographer like I said I would be. If anything, I would like to call myself a documentary-style photographer. I still love photographing people, but not in a Pinterest-y way like I originally loved to do.
I think I’m going to start this blog back up. After stalking myself all night, I realized that I missed being fearless while photographing. Any thoughts, ideas, or anything that came to me, I wrote down and posted. I can’t even imagine myself doing that now. I think my schooling taught me to overthink and be overly critical of my work. But I hope that by relaunching this, I can bring myself back out of my shell. Even if I don’t get responses from this, I can at least have my thoughts out and in a slightly more tangible form.
What was it that I used to say? Love and Rockets?
