December was a pretty hard month for me. I’m an optimistic person by nature and I love to keep things in a positive tone. On the other side, I don’t want to leave out when things get a little shaky, to an extent. It’s never all sunshine, but I hate to dwell on negative things. […]

It’s been the month of all months, really, and it’s mostly been about hanging in there. It’s been about tying up loose ends at school and at work, and solidifying plans for the future. Eep! I finished writing my thesis, created the visual, and I officially became an MFA! I still feel like I’m in […]

I didn’t even take nine whole pictures this April—how’s that for busy? Hah. This month has been a little insane, although with all the crazy definitely comes some fun.
