Off to nowhere

Thrifted light yellow silk pants - Forever 21 jersey and shoes



I think I may very well have the most talented 7 year-old photographer on my hands. My little brother loves experimenting with all sorts of technology; he plays video games better than I could ever and regularly films his Super Mario action figures.* Some might be on YouTube.

It's getting warmer and I've been wearing less and lighter clothes that will also be comfortable in the overly air-conditioned school buildings. My college career is coming to an end in just two weeks and I have been busy with a multitude of projects that need to be done before the end of April. I had a very good idea of what I wanted to do when I entered college, but I'm not so sure anymore; shouldn't the opposite happen? In truth, I went in with a narrow mind when I should have done the opposite. However, my ideas have grown and I have a better sense of my talents. I know that good things will happen, but only I can make them.

To leave off, here is a quote I stumbled upon today:
Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously.

-Tom Robbins-

  1. Ah, that's real cute! Filming his super mario action figures and all. :)
    Great shots by the way, really like your outfit and the contrast with the shoes! (lovely shoes too!) - i'm all praise.

    I really agree with this quote too, "if we only had the guts to be truly free" nice.

  5. Everything about this post is pure perfection! Your Lolita book, your shoes, the darling puppy, and of course the fact that the talent behind the lens was a 7-year-old!

    What did you think of Lolita? Nabakov is one of my faves :)
