last days of summer

DSC_7114-1The mornings are chill, the days are hot and the evenings are humid. These are the last few days of summer and they are slipping through my hands.

Alaska and I spent some time out on my little porch this evening. It was a pleasant distraction from homework.

I am ready for the fall season to get here, but I miss my long days of photo taking and living on the lake.

milky way warmth

This is pretty much what my night looked like; sitting around the campfire, looking up at the stars while being in the company of some great friends. I saw the milky way for the first time tonight. And I also saw my first shooting star.

I don’t know why it took me all summer to do this, but there I was, laying on the ground, looking up at the sky, and scared to death what will happen after this last week of camp. Life is scary…did you know that? It’s full of wonder & mystery and sometimes that can get real frightening, not knowing what’s going to happen next, waiting for something to happen, or just plain confused. Sometimes we have so much to do, and we start to feel overwhelmed. And maybe, all of it’s happening at once and you have to keep reminding yourself to take your life one day at a time.

I always think I have this great plan for my life, then boom, out of nowhere something chances my life’s course and I’m having a hard time grasping that concept right now. It also doesn’t help that I really don’t want this camping season to be over.

Out here is a whole other world and my life back in Charleston seems so strange and foreign now.

I love these large open skies fill with clouds by day and billions of stars as far as the eye can see at night. My heart was made for the country.

Photos are said to be worth a thousand words, but these are priceless.
I love my family, immediate and extended.

Also, check out my mother in that last picture, sitting on my Aunt Kathy’s lap.

where am I?

DSC_0748

I feel…out of sorts. And I can’t put my finger on it, as to what is going on. But as of right now, I feel so unlike myself and I don’t know what to do about it. Part of me thinks it’s because of the medicine I’m on, but there’s something else too.

Have you ever felt this way?
I mean, I know I have before. And the before was terrible.
I’ve got to find a way to find myself again. I know I will, I have hope.

beautiful flaw

Sometimes flaws are beautiful. I didn’t mean for the photo to look like this. But wow. To me, this is beautiful.

My day has been long. Every Thursday is. I love what I’m doing. But I still love sleep. As much work as I have in web design, photoshop, photography and my other classes, I don’t feel overwhelmed by all the work I have to do. I guess that’s how I know I’m doing the right thing with my life. It’s taken me a long time to get here. I think this time, I got it right.

Don’t forget to love yourself.

this tuesday

It is freezing in here. This is what I look like today. It’s Tuesday and I have class.
These are all facts. And in my opinion, I should take a nap right now.
