It's Uphill for Oddities


I feel like I've always marched to the rhythm of my own drum.   I've never wanted to be the 'mainstream' or the status quo, I've always just strived to do what felt 'right' regardless of if it was the road less traveled or
not.  I think the creative arts have always called to me because there's a constant soundtrack playing in my mind.   I want to see the wonder in the everyday, and find the beauty in the world.  I love finding something in real life that feels 'fantastical', and appreciating it for existing.   I just want to keep on creating imagery that feels like it's telling some sort of fairytale...

I'm far too curious to be normal.


We saw Panic! @ the Disco in concert the other night, and I can't hardly put into words the emotions that I so strongly feel when I hear their music.  I feel inspired and motivated and ready to take on the world.  One thing that is so very clear in watching Brendon perform is that he truly, 100% just loves every second of it, and has so much fun.  And that in and of itself is so inspirational to me.  I want to feel that joy, to be so passionate about something I'm creating that it just radiates from you. And I do.  When I'm editing imagery and dreaming up shoots and framing ideas, I am just so very much in it.  

I think growing up I was scared of getting to be an adult and hating what I did everyday.  I very badly just wanted to be happy and love life.  Never mind what people think you 'should' do.  If you hate every second of it, what's the point of it all?   I'm not saying there aren't hard days, but I would much rather be a stranger crusader and feel the rush of adrenaline in making things I love, than be the status quo and be bored out of my mind.  

So here's to embracing life to the fullest, and remembering to have fun.
