you know that feeling where something, anything happens and it just ruins your mood completely and it changes it to something you do not want?
that feeling where all you wanna do is crawl into bed and go to sleep?
right now I wanna do just that; go to my bed, cuddle with my boyfriend, maybe have a comfort food or watch The Office, and go to sleep. hide away from the world by covering myself with my yellow comforter, and try to forget feeling like this. maybe even cry out of anger.
ugh. I feel so little.
And not in the child-like way. i mean the there-are-people-who-are-better-and-bigger-than-you sad way.
I even feel embarrassed. And for a prideful person like myself, embarrassment is not something I can easily deal with. Should I try to suck it up ?
I’m writing this as a form to vent and in hopes that putting it out there will make feel not like this. Although I’m not sure if it is working or making me more self conscious. Oh well, it’s out there.
almost a month ago I received on the mail a pentax film camera from the 70s that david got for me. it is so so pretty. the moment I pulled it out the box I fell in love with it. i couldn’t stop thanking david enough.
here are some photos I took with it that I wanted to share with you guys:)
aren’t my models the best? I love it when I capture pictures of David laughing.
I still need to play with my camera a little bit more, and maybe even try a different photo lab, but overall I was happy with the results. bothering grumpy alexander and telling him not to eat my shoe is always fun.
photos taken in our univesity, david’s house, and my front yard with a Pentax MX using Fujifilm Superia X-TRA 400 35mm film.
I can’t believe we’re already gonna go into october! like what, halloween already?! :O (I’m kind of excited for that holiday, to be honest!) but still, woah.. anyway, this is week five of my photo challenge :) hope you like it!

the challenge I got the idea from here. previous photo challenges for this month here.
the other day I stumbled upon this picture of the first time my boyfriend and I went to our local farmer’s market. it made me miss it and want to go. all of the food and the fun him and I had –that was a good day!
then last saturday I woke up at 9 am randomly, like something told me to wake up. I look at my phone and it has a notification saying “farmer’s market today!” so I had to tell david and an hour later we were on our way. oh how he spoils me even when he’s half asleep! <3
boyfriend had many taquitos, I had a corn and a lemon paleta. happy, happy campers! :)
so we passed by a floor full of chalk drawings and i mean…how could we say no!?
I took my minolta with me and shot some photos of this day + the buildings around us. I would gladly share them..but I’m a very lazy human that hasn’t developed that film yet, sorry, hah! david took his lego star wars minifigures and shot several pictures too! (you can follow him on instagram here!)
ok, I don’t know how this is gonna sound, but you know don’t know how happy it made me to see that someone made and sold natural deodorants in my hometown (and in such a cute packaging!). in case you’re interested: it works, it smells good, you can make your own by following recipes online, and best of all: it’s not bad for your body. yay!
oh, and that orange mason jar is a carrot cake for my grandma! it smelled soo good!
the sky looked so pretty that day. we just had to go on the rooftop again.
I love local events. I’m glad David likes them too.
well, until next time friends :) thanks for stopping by!
Designers, painters, musicians, you name it.
Not a lot of people get their work.
Not a lot of people appreciate all of the hours put into that project plus all the hours of practice needed to get that technique; all of that detail they managed to create, all of the things they had to do to get final result.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, there are people out there who are great enthusiasts of art. But art, even in its most minimalistic form, is sometimes not stopped and admired.
And that really sucks.
Support local artists. Attend museum exhibits. Encourage these wonderful creators.
