We got a new friend for Lupin. Isn't he just adorable?! Well, Lupin got the wrong idea and is a little (or a lot) jealous. :( They're both a little vicious towards each other but we're hoping it works out. :/
I am apprehensive about the change of the season. I love Summer. But I also love what Fall means. It means Halloween. Warm colors. Cardigans and boots. Pumpkin spice lattes. Crunching leaves. Crisp mornings. Apple hill. I'm just not ready for the cold weather. Overcast, gloomy days. The rain. Oh well.
Happy first day of Fall! It was 100 degrees today!
So, I've been shooting in film. I think I'm in love.
I wasn't planning on doing a Lion King photo as a part of my Disney series but after watching it in 3D a couple of days ago I decided I needed to. :)
I remember seeing The Lion King in theaters with my mom and grandma when I was 5 years old. I remember crying my eyes out with my mom when Mufasa died. This movie is definitely one of my all time Disney favorites. :)
"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope... When we die our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so, we are all connected in the great Circle of Life."
My anxiety didn't leave when Hailey did. I was afraid of that. I've continued to have disturbing thoughts and nightmares that I cannot control. So that is the inspiration for the sort of dark photos I've had within the last month. I feel like it kind of helps me.
I've been going to Santa Cruz every year since I was little. I haven't had the chance this year and I feel like I've been craving it. We tried going last Monday and that was a mistake. It took us over half an hour to drive about 5 miles. Apparently everyone in Sacramento had the same Labor Day plans as we did. So we turned around. We finally went today as a sort of "End of Summer Hurrah." The weather was crap but that's ok. It was fun. It was calming. It was all I needed.
I've decided that this vacation is a seriously needed mental health break (although I still have to go to school). I am going to sleep in if I want to. I am going to stay in my pajamas until whatever hour I want. I might not shower. I might watch hours of TV. I might take longs walks. I will lay in the grass. Basically, this vacation is to wrap up my summer and do things that are good for me and my mental health before things get insanely crazy. I think it will be good.
I imagine this is what I will look like most of the time. :)
