we let go all the time, of feelings, of people, of fear, we let go because we want to, because we have to. At the end of the day there is no choice. we let go because if we don’t, we’ll never move on.
Thursday was busy night.
Arriving at my high school, El Diamante in Visalia, California, I met my friends and we walked into the gym together. I spent my night making pictures for the Fall Varsity Sports and Organizations practicing their dance routines for next morning’s rally.
Dance Team, In Motion
Girl’s Water polo
Boy’s Water polo
Flowers from my Beautiful Boyfriend.
Daniel gave these to me as apart of his asking me to the Harvest dance on Saturday!
I am surprised they have not died yet- in the past they wither away too fast- so I must be doing something right this time! :)
I hope everyone has had a great weekend and I hope you have a fantastic week!
My mom says that I should start college in the summer. She says that I am changing into a Visalian- for the worse. Most people in Visalia are nobodys, but I want to be someone and I have to keep my drive. I agree with her, I think Ill start in June.
I need to begin a new life, my adult life, where I can become the person I have always wanted to be.
I think that I have to let go of everything that I have ever previously known. Is that the right thing or is my head just clouded with confusion? I think it may be my final decision to let go off everything, everyone here when I leave, though I am rotten at goodbyes.
I don’t think forever lasts forever with people, necessary. But the impact you have on another person is the thing that they will keep forever in their hearts. I hope to make a strong impact on people through photography.
I am not sure how to say goodbye, but I plan on leaving with several “see ya laters.” Though it may be a lie for the majority, it will help me lose connection and focus on my future.
I cannot have anything holding me back in college. I can meet up with the past, maybe in my future.
I need to focus on leaving for college these last few months of high school and refine all of the lessons that I have been taught these past 17 years to be independent when I reach adulthood.
I need to focus on my dream of photographing for National Geographic. I have the drive, the passion, and work ethic. I will keep practicing and weeding out my mistakes so that I can become more consistent in my work.
Some people ask me why I work so hard with my photography. They don’t understand that it isn’t something I have to do, it’s something that is apart of me and I am driven to make beautiful pictures that will make an impact on both people and the world. It brings me great joy in what I do and I think about photography all the time. I daydream about photographing and making a difference in the lives of people.
I know I have a lot to learn, but I will continue to work very hard for the people of the world so when I shoot my first assignment for National Geographic, they will feel strong emotion from my pictures that will inspire them to better our world.
See ya later,
Guess what? I just bought a new camera! What camera did I buy, you ask? Well, it is the Nikon d800! Exciting, right?
Upon waking up, I walked outside and sat in the grass this chilled morning. I read the entire manual and took test shots to learn my new device.
With a full frame and 32 mega pixels this is the best camera I have had by far. My first camera was a small kodak camera, so this is a great step up!
If you haven’t taken a look at this beautiful camera yet, here’s a link to check it out! http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d800/
In the space between yes and no, there is a life time. It is the difference between the path you walk and the path you left behind; it is the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are; it is the legroom for the lies you will tell yourself in the future
