I'm feeling much better today. Watching/helping my brother play Legend of Zelda is oddly therapeutic.
I might have to make a more concerted effort to post earlier. The delay thus far is a direct result of my body refusing to arise form bed until at least noon. I get up at 10 to no alarm and almost immediately fall back asleep. This is a habit I'll need to break before college. On Mondays at 10 I'd already be midway through my second class of the day. Mhm, yeah. Like I said, the habit must be broken.
It fills me with utmost delight to learn my letters and summer mixes to the Blogger Family are well received! It also felt good to get crafty with the album covers -- seriously, that was a blast. (If you're wondering, most were photos from the Urban Outfitters catalogue because they were gorgeous and epitomized summer.)
I'm hoping to become a better photographer and develop my personal style. I'm realizing more and more that if I look up to Annie Lebowitz (okay, I don't, but if I did) that doesn't have to dictate what I take pictures of, like, at all. I can do what I want. How liberating.
When I keep talking about my future to friends, family, relative strangers, I always preface it with "If I'm serious," which is odd. How come I'm not serious already? How do I get serious? It begs all these questions that I cannot answer. Yet.
This project was brought to my attention by a Tumblr post made by Kayley Hyde (owlssayhooot on YouTube). I watched it and immediately wanted to support the cause. Further, if I'm ever in the same boat whilst making an independent film perhaps sometime down the road, I would hope I could count on you guys to help in some way. If you're interested, you can make a donation on her Indiegogo. If not, that's fine. She encourages just helping spread the word!
Topping my to-do list for tomorrow is making a considerable dent in The Ghost Map. Wish me luck! What have you been reading lately?
