Hello all! I hope summer has been well for everyone so far.As an update for you guys, I went to EDC, survived and had a magical time like expected.This time being my second time around though I tried to avoid recording or using my phone too much during the whole experience. Working on the “live in the moment” sensation of not handling my phone during events and it actually has been pretty nice. On another note, I am taking organic chemistry in the summer so I have indeed brought death into my door.
I’ve been working on myself and growing as a person lately. I used to be very uncomfortable looking at my own face even when I accidentally opened the front camera of my phone, and when I sent snaps I would only send my big ol’ forehead or need a filter. Learning to love your flaws and accept them is a difficult challenge and task, building up self confidence and finding yourself is a journey each person has to take. Sometimes it takes people years to find that and people are out there still soul searching. Do what you love, love what you do.
Today, I tried to rekindle something that I found joy in doing. After capturing over 30+ shots worth and picking through my flaws, I managed to find some I actually liked and wanted to do a double exposure with some shots of flowers I had saved. Creation is my salvation, just making something and being able to present it. I’m finally learning to see myself and appreciate it, flaws and all. Growing takes patience and care, someday I’ll get there.
