Stress Stress and more stress

I hate stressing out… it’s awful!

I’m just really overwhelmed right now. I definitely need some encouragement right now folks. I am completely all over the place!

Why? Because I have to PACK! I hate packing. I’ve been dreading it since the beginning of the year… I hate moving so much. I just wanna be in my new apartment already!

I cannot wait to get settled and live my first summer in Ashland! I just wanna fast forward! 
I feel like I just needed to vent. 
That is all!

It’s Not Just You

The Daily Dahlia

Confession: probably my biggest pet peeve on the planet is when people start a question with “Am I the only one who…?” No. You’re not. You’re not the only one who writes that way, reads that way, likes that food, likes that band, thinks Benedict Cumberbatch sounds like a Game of Thrones character or looks like someone squeezed Spongebob and stuck googly eyes on him…you’re just not. But. There’s a different kind of “Is it just me?” feeling, and that’s the stress of when you’re drowning in something and nobody’s talking about it and you feel like everyone’s got it together but you, and so you don’t wanna say a thing, and it all snowballs until you basically wanna curl up and die. I know that feeling. It’s why I wrote this post after splitting with my first agent. So in case you are wondering any of these things, I…

Confrontation

Confrontation is very difficult at times. I honestly find it super intimidating. You have to practice what you are going to say, how you are going to say it, and how you are going to approach the situation. But, once it is over, it’s such an amazing and relieving feeling. If you have any issues with someone, talk to them about it! It’s all going to be okay, just get it over with! I promise it’s not as bad as you think it’s going to be. It’s something I need to work on, but it will all work out!

Exclusion

We’ve all been there. Feeling excluded, left out, left behind. I’ve been there a lot. I’m feeling it right now so I think I’m just going to vent it out. It’s hard. When you have a group of friends, you kind of just want to be there all of the time, you want to be a part of everything… but you can’t always be part of everything. That’s the thing, sometimes you just have to accept that people are going to leave you out of things, and sometimes you are going to be the one who excludes people. But please don’t fret, if you are having one of those times where you feel left out or left behind, accept that you are by yourself. It’s okay to be alone! Cuddle up with your favorite blanket, drink your favorite tea, and watch Netflix or read a book or do whatever you want to do! Like I’ve stated in other posts, it’s OKAY to be alone. Enjoy that time, because down the road you are going to have a lot less alone time. So sit there, enjoy doing whatever you want, and be happy! You aren’t going to be a part of everything all of the time, but that’s okay, you need you time. 🙂

Identifying Your Photographic Inspiration and Style

The Daily Post

Today’s technology makes the creation of a photograph a trivial thing. With the rapid improvement of cameras within mobile devices in the last decade, we are rarely without the ability to take photographs of the minutiae of our daily lives. We can share images with others with the tap of a button, and the feedback in the form of likes and comments is addictive. With the trivialization of photography in an age of selfies, latte art, sunsets, and vintage color filters (all of which I love, if I’m being honest), some of the heart and art of the craft seems to be getting lost. As a photographer, do you take the time to identify and understand what really excites you when you find it in front of your lens? If not, do you wish to start?
