Starting Summer Right


Something weird possessed me over the weekend. I don't really know where it came from but this passion grabbed a hold of me and I decided to give in to temptation. I started to look on google, and I compared the pictures I was finding to the shape of my face. Knowing that it was time to let go and move on made it impossible for me not to pick up the phone and call my hairdresser... yes.

It was time to cut my hair.


This is my "I-CAN'T-BELIEVE-I'M-ACTUALLY-DOING-THIS" brave face.

Family Doesn't Mean Perfect

Today, I became an official member of the Domino Players. Although I am not a theatre major, nor do I ever plan on becoming one, it is a passion of mine that I have had a wonderful time pursuing. I have learned what it's like to be part of a family. In this company, I have found friends like none other. I have found genuine people who will ask if I'm alright after long stressful weeks and countless updates on Facebook and Twitter. I have found people who believe in me and my work and what I can do. Yeah, we're not all best friends, yeah we don't get along sometimes, but at the end of the day we're there for each other. And that's what matters. That's what it means to be a family.

This isn't everyone but I'll be sure to post more pictures and a catch up to explain what all I've been up to in the coming week!

Studying Nonsense

A blank page full of graphite.

Separate Ways

Eating pizza on our carpet... cut.

From the Dark Night

Sunlight rises as innocence drips away.

Goodbye is the First Step to Hello

I said goodbye to my baby yesterday. It wasn't our last goodbye, but soon she'll belong to someone else. It's terrifying really. She was, er, is my second and I can't believe how it happened. I figured the first would get into the program so that's why I decided to attempt at making a duplicate. Nothing will ever replace the my first creation, but even artists have to pick favourites. This one has a more parallel border, more contrast, it's less murky. But I can't be selfish and keep it. I have to let my picture go, it's the juror that wants it for her own collection! I never would have imagined having to put a price on my work let alone actually selling it. But my creativity, my name will have been let out into the world. It's more than any 19 year old photography student can ask for.

The Perfect Night

Let's make it classy.
You, me, a bottle of wine.
On the other hand,
you can leave the wine with me.
Believe me, I won't object.

Fuck Facebook, Twitter

Holy goddamn fuck.
Where did all of that time go?
Social media.

If Only...


Hey if you can get
away with a few words on
every line then 4
pages end up going by
quickly. (This is a tanka)

And How Does This Make You Feel?


A short story on
killing a baby touched me
because it was sad.

But actually the short story "Popular Mechanics" had an effect on me because it showed two people who were more obsessed about getting their way instead of putting aside their differences to take care of their child.

I guess I should finally write this 4 page paper, eh?

A Two Quarter Fine

A few measly cents,
for some overdue headphones,
lost along the way.

That Clique

I had found that place.
I thought I could call it home.
I guess I was wrong.
They've made themselves a family,
A friendship like no other.

Trying To Stay Awake

Somehow I'll stay up
with a cuppa tea cradled
between my fingers.

A Letter to Me

I wish I could go back,
find that girl that I was yesterday.
I'd tell her that today would be rough
but don't give up hope.
Tomorrow is a chance for a better things to come.

I wish I could go back,
find the girl that I was a week ago.
I'd tell her to enjoy the time that she has with those around her
and remember every laugh.
You can never promise that time will come again.

I wish I could go back,
find that girl that I was a month ago.
I'd tell her that everything's going to change
but it all is going to work out in the end.
Everything happens for a reason.

I wish I could go back,
find that girl I was a year ago.
I'd tell her that life's full of the same old shit
but the chances you're going to have is beyond anything you could imagine.
Grab a hold of every opportunity.

I wish I could stay here
find that girl I am today.
I'd tell her to stop waiting on the world
and letting people put her down.
Her life is in her hands.

A Simple Truth

Unexpected words
come from unbeknownst wise men:
"Live first, write later."

Beer


He has his feet up and his shades down. He sits enjoying the cool spring breeze as the sun warms his face. As a batter goes up to the plate, he puts his feet down knowing that it’ll be a good swing. Jumping up, he forgets about the beer at his feet as he goes to catch the ball. This catch, a proof of memory, is worth more than an overpriced cup.

Ranting and Raving

What good is talking
when the past is just the past?
Use it to move on.

Stories


A white blank page.

Close your eyes and see the darkness. Wait for the light to come. Wait for the colours to start swirling and figures to emerge. Watch how the figures become animated within seconds, and emotions embody the motions.

A white blank page, just waiting for words.

Catharsis

There are some days when
I wish I owned a book full
of offensive words
just so that I can shout them
all where no one can hear me.

Pushed Away

The farther I go
the less we all care as you
watch me disappear.

In Asking for the World...

Always make sure that
your expectations never
exceed exceptions.
