I decided another good step in the ~professional~ direction, is to have a public twitter. And as I can have a foul mouth, I’d like to keep my personal one private, so I made a professional one! It’s what all the cool kids are doing these days.
I have a series in my head that I really want have to do. But… I have no idea how to do it. How to translate it into images. Maybe when I graduate, I’ll actually have time to figure that out, and then DO it!
So today, we drove down a road in Nichols for a while and ended up in the most peaceful, relaxing, beautiful area I’ve been a long time. It was amazing. The air was so fresh and the temperature was wonderful and the land was so open. I was kind of caught up in it, so I guess I was paying less attention because it resulted in me forgetting to also cock the back of my camera, which made for two double exposure whoopsies. Which means 4 photos aren’t usable. And I am so bummed. Because as I usually take a couple shots of each thing/area, I either only took one for these few because I knew it would be good, or it was the second/would have been better shot. It wouldn’t be as big of a deal, but I shot less in general today because even though it was a beautiful day, there were less things that drew me to photograph them/it. And I can’t just go back whenever, because it’s 2.5 hours away. But that’s the drawback of film, I guess. Whatever. I still love it immensely.
H: Do I smoke/drink: No to smoking, yes to drinking. I don’t ever get out of control, though. I just like having a few drinks with friends, or relaxing by drinking a beer/glass of wine. Wait. Why do I still try to justify this? I’m 22.
J: What I want to be when I get older? This should be phrased “What do I want to be when I graduate, which is in two months?” But, I want to work in the photo/creative department at a magazine, and do my own fine art photography on the side. I wouldn’t mind working as a curator for a gallery/museum after grad school, either.
V: Last time I cried? I actually don’t remember. I don’t cry all that often. BUT I almost cried the other day when I found out that the people that run the student show at McMaster Gallery lost the notes people wrote to go with my portraits of them. By lost, I mean they threw them out probably. THEY WERE PART OF THE DAMN PIECES! And it pissed me off because I explained that and made sure it was understood.
W: Concerts I’ve been to? I haven’t been to many BIG concerts, but I’ve been to SO many shows. Many of the best have been local artists. A short list of others include- mewithoutYou, Colour Revolt, Anathallo, Manchester Orchestra, and The Rocket Boys. I want to go to Bonnaroo for the first time this year, but we’ll see.
Z: How am I? I can’t complain! Starting to get really stressed and anxious about graduating/the future, but all is well.
