life on repeat


First of all, sorry about all the profanity in the last post. I was really stressed out. Speaking of stress, Teen Ink picked one of my photos for their Bully Book that comes out soon, hopefully, and it will be published of course and sold in stores. Can't wait! Right now, I'm actually taking a break from typing up my photo history midterm notes which are really helpful to do and the sole reason why I ace all the exams. And then speaking of acing things, I made the Dean's List at school, which is news to me because I had no idea what that was. It reminded me of when I got sent to the Dean's office in high school for taking photos in the cafeteria sophomore year. But I'm proud to be on this Dean's list.

Secondly, my friend insisted I try listening to xxyyxx (again). The first time, I really didn't like his sound, but that was based on the first few 'popular' songs Spotify gave me and they are really bad but then I heard his other ones from Still Sound like Life on Repeat and I can't stop putting them on repeat ever since. You have to listen to them loud through headphones for full effect.

english sux

I'm in college and I'm still taking English, why is this mandatory? I thought 12 years of practicing English was enough. One of my biggest peeves is writing about shit that I can't describe about books that I did not enjoy on topics that I can't relate to. Why can't  I just verbally announce my "essay" and grade that? What's worse about the class now is that I have 7 days before the next class so I leave everything to be done until the night before or morning of and it's only because I'm avoiding it and because I'm busy. I hate proper English and minimum four page essays and theses on books that I can explain better out loud than on paper. This should have been a status.

I just wanted to make this a post about my frustration with papers and that I have photos to share but I can't because I have to write this essay before it's too late. Ugggggh I can't even. On a side note, that's a good thing, my friend painted my kitty in gouache on Bristol.

I was also casually shopping with Kara Hayward at Topshop today. Wish we had taken a selfie!

february five

  1. I was born on the fifth of February; it snowed, just as it is now.
  2. In five days, it will be Chinese New Year and the Prabal Gurung x Target collection will be released.
  3. In class today, I wrote out five ideas I plan to shoot before this coming fall. I am so excites. 
  4. Contemplated on starting another 52 weeks project.. still not sure.
  5. And having nothing to do with the number 5, I just wish it was spring already so I can shoot some goddamn good pictures because this weather is ruining everything. 
But anyway, I have been taking photos! None of which I am really satisfied with. Here's some pics from the camera and phone to make up for my absence on the web. More to come after the 10th! ☮
