So with this new direction and all, I thought I should give an insight as to who I am apart from the person behind the camera. Therefore, let’s get the obvious part out of the way, I own a photography business. And I love it.
I am 17 years old, a senior in high school, and a college student since my sophomore year of high school. I have spent plenty of long nights and early mornings at McDonald’s where I have worked since June of 2011. I will complain and complain about it all day long, but the truth is I have made lifelong friendships there and I wouldn’t trade the laughs we have for anything.
I drive a cream colored Volkswagen convertible. I love it to pieces, but it is actually falling to pieces. Literally, it seems like every day I find something new that is broken or in the process of breaking. So I will continue to be in denial and just love it, since that’s all I can do.
My [recently new] favorite color is red due to the boldness of it. I am the proud owner of a Bichon Frise, which I am convinced is mixed with a poodle since her hair is impossible to keep groomed. She is old, but has her sparks. She will start whining for me the minute I turn the corner on the block. Really now? There’s no love like that.
Speaking of love, I live with my mom and my younger brother, and I have been the girlfriend of an amazing man for almost 2 years now. Who said you can’t meet your soul mate in high school? ‘Cause I am pretty sure we will prove them wrong.
My mom is the only person who has been there for me my entire life and no matter how many disagreements we come across, I know I will always go back to her when I need to and that she will be there. As for my brother, he won’t say it, but he thinks I am pretty cool. Yeah, probably not. As we get older, though, I think we are connecting more in certain areas.
If you are still reading this, you are awesome. I really just want to journal my life growing up and getting out into this amazing, yet scary, world and anyone who wants to follow can follow. After all, it only happens once, and I want to remember everything. And I feel like it is easy to forget that stage of life because I am sure it happens so quickly, even though it doesn’t feel like it right now. I spend my days feeling like I am rocking back and forth waiting for my 18th birthday to just be here already. So maybe you forgot the growing up era, or maybe you are growing up, either way, I hope you are enjoying life to its’ fullest as I plan to do and share with you! (P.S. I totally did not intend to rhyme that, but I love when it happens.)
