first things first, Ky wanted me to model for her homework the other day. these photos were about colors that harmonize together. she went with the more nature felt colors and I think these turned out amazing. she has wicked talent. this was also what I wore that day:
so this morning i woke up with that now familiar rush of depression and anxiousness and couldn't really handle it. i usually turn to photography to express myself when i can't really fathom whats going on so i did so this morning. its kind of weird how much just setting up my tri pod and taking some self portraits can really relieve me of my stress. these photos, to me, show my current emotions. just my bare self, alone, and vulnerable, needing that familiar face back in my life. i miss the hell out of my best friend and its just getting harder. taking these photos really helped set my mind at ease, until i glanced at the ceiling and discovered some glow in the dark stars placed by the previous residents of this dorm. those stupid stars made some pretty intense emotions/memories run through my mind. I'm almost at my breaking point, i miss you.
so, thought id finally do a post about my life at the current moment. I've finally made my journey down to Savannah, Georgia where i will be studying for the next 4 years. I am absolutely in love with Savannah. its the perfect place filled with the most perfect people. everyone here is so accepting and interesting. there has already been a myriad of times that random people will come up to me and just talk, about what I'm studying, etc. I've met the most interesting people. every single person has a different story that you get a glimpse of when you meet them. the students here are so diverse and unspeakably talented it will always amaze me. the other day a boy came up to me as i was waiting for my friend to pick me up, he was from Africa, studies architecture, is a senior here at SCAD, and somehow we ending up having a conversation in French. meeting people like this is what i love. i cannot express how interesting everyone is. something incredibly odd is that i have met so many people from Michigan. maybe 7? i thought id be the only one... but anyways, i love SCAD. its so different than anything i have experienced. i am already so inspired for shoots and theres so many new things to see and do. theres always something to do in Sav. today, for instance, i went to Tybee Island, the beach, with Morgan, a freshman, and Savannah, a transfer. we spent a couple of hours there and Morgan had me model for her Photo homework. i can't wait to go back and shoot. then the other day me Ky and Jay went to explore down by the river and sat in a square for an hour and talked. then the other day Ky and I went under the Turner bridge and shot some pics. I'm definitely getting a feel for Sav so I'm not completely lost anymore. one thing i hate though is the bus system. the busses can go die actually. thank god i have a plethora of friends with cars that can come save me. and then nights in Savannah...thats a whole different story. I swear it transforms. everyone is on the streets and just having a great time. Me and some friends went to this venue where we knew the guys who books the bands there, and we had a pretty fucking good time. seeing the Savannah night life was fun these past couple of nights. I couldn't be happier that i chose SCAD.
It kind of amazes me how accepting everyone is. well, after all it is art school. its weird meeting people who are so accepting about style and shoots. i love art school. but these art kids, they're bad news *insert smirking emoji*
around 4pm yesterday I spotted this pretty light stream in our dorm. obviously we both jumped to grab our cameras and had an impromptu shoot. this is Kiele my gorgeous roomate. she's studying photography too and is incredibly talented. she's super chill and isn't afraid to strip down for some shots like this. pretty nice we'll be having this same lighting everyday.
