Plans

Something I’ve learned in my 23 years is that things don’t always go as you planned.

 

When I was 16 I KNEW that I was going to marry my then boyfriend and have the same best friend for the rest of my life. I can honestly say, I am beyond ecstatic that none of that happened.

You grow up, people change. What kind of life would it be if you were always “16 year old you”.

I didn’t move to London.

I haven’t started school yet. (This one I am particularly thankful for considering I was never 100% on what I wanted to be when I “grew up.”)

I’m not married. I’m not even with that guy anymore.

I still talk to those people occasionally but, they’re not the center of my whole world anymore and that’s okay. Amazing even! Because, I’m the center of my world.

I guess what I’m just trying to say it’s okay when everything you planned doesn’t happen the way you thought it would. Spontaneity is mind blowing. Trust me.

Writers Block.

I literally cannot think of anything to put on here. Like I have 3 or 4 half finished post in my drafts and I just..I can’t dude I can’t.

So it may be a few days before I put anything up on here which sucks because I wanted to do a post every week and somewhere along the way I’ve missed one.

I have however kept it up a hell of a lot better than I did last year so there’s that.

chatty!

hi guys!

Seeing as how I was sick for the end of last week (I get really bad migraines) I will be putting up two blog post this week. One of them will go up today and one later this week. So, this one may be a bit like chatty shit. 🙂

 

So basically I’m really stoked because tomorrow my birthday present will be coming in and it is my very first DSLR camera and it is a NIKON D3400. I have never owned something like this before and I am just so very excited to finally be able to start my portfolio and finally make use of the Photography section of this blog.

I mean obviously I have tons of dreams and expectations for my life, I mean, just read my long ass bucket list.;)

However, photography has always been there as like a “home base” in a way. It has always been a real passion for me. Now, I won’t go into too much detail because I have done that in an earlier post.

I’ll be sure to leave a review on this blog after using it for a little while.

I’m just so excited for a dream to start coming true!

Whats a dream you’re really excited about?

Misandry Vs. Feminism

I promise this is not some super duper rant about equality or anything. (That may come later) 😉

This is more like, I am just so very sick of people misunderstanding the difference between Feminism, Egalitarianism, Misandry, and Misogyny. So I’m just going to clear this shit up,

HERE AND NOW.

(links for each definition at the bottom)

Feminism: 1 :  the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes, 2 :  organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests

Egalitarianism: 1 :  a belief in human equality especially with respect to social, political, and economic affairs. 2 :  a social philosophy advocating the removal of inequalities among people

Misandry: a hatred of men

Misogyny: a hatred of women

Now, for the love of god, can we please stop calling Misandry Feminism.

Sorry for the short post but it needed to be said. 🙂

Definitions: (which are legit by the way, they’re Webster’s Dictionary)

Misandry Definition

Egalitarianism Definition

Misogyny Definition

My Dreams.

My goal in life has always been and will always be to help change the world.

I remember being in high school and telling people that I wanted to save lives and them asking, “Like a cop or a soldier?” But, its not like that at all. I don’t want to punish the evil, I want to end it.

I want to show people who feel like they cant go on one more day, this isn’t the end.

I want to show people who feel like they are not good enough, that they are beautiful.

I want to show people who feel like they have no one, they have me.

I want people to understand  who you love cannot be decided by a court of law.

It is possible to not identify as the gender you were born with.

There are more sexual orientations than just gay and straight.

People should not be judge because of the color of their skin.

Nothing in this world is black and white, We are the grey area.

“We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”
― Sirius Black, Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix

Photography.

Photography to me is more than just a hobby. It is a passion and it is beautiful.

Five, ten, twenty, fifty years down the road people will be able to look at a photograph and see the amazing things that have happened on this certain day and see the emotions someone felt or the things they enjoyed and that is amazing to me. It is a window into someones mind and the things they thought were most beautiful. It can be anything from the birth of a child to a bird in a tree, a beautiful wedding day were there is so much love to a child’s toothless smile, a sunset on the beach to a sunrise over the mountains.

It doesn’t matter if the pictures are posed and set up in a studio or taken on a cell phone at a bonfire in high school. Every single picture is a memory and it is so important to me.

I cannot wait to capture memories.

“What i like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
― Karl Lagerfield

Superheroes.

When I was younger I was never into superheros. I always thought that was a boy thing and dolls were for girls. That was until I grew up and learned about gender stereotyping (but that’s a post for another day). Anyway I was very, very wrong.

I remember I first started getting into superheroes and the whole comic genre when I was about 17-18 (I’m almost 22 now). My boyfriend at the time was a die hard Marvel fan. His favorites were Ghost Rider and The Punisher. So, of course, I chose DC just to piss him off. My favorite for about 2-ish years was The Flash. He was fast and he was so cool and witty and Thomas Grant Gustin was going to be playing him in the TV show and I’m sure we can all agree he is entirely too freaking adorable.

Well me and that guy broke up when I was 19 but, I held onto the whole Flash thing because he was the only one I knew anything about. So he must be my favorite right? Hell no.

Me and the guy I am with now started dating about 9 months later and this past May he took me (and his two younger brothers) to see this movie that completely changed my life.

The Avengers Age of Ultron.

I was obsessed. I’m still obsessed.

Whats my favorite superhero now? Captain America and Bucky Barnes. That’s right I have two.

In my mind no one can compare to those two. I mean sure there are stronger and wittier and faster, but those two are it for me.

They’re a balance of good and true. The Boy Scout and The Winter Soldier.

I mean they are not the only two I care about The Avengers as a whole are my heart. Everything they are is amazing to me. They are just this group of misfits that fit together so well. They are a family. I don’t know what I would do without them.

 

 

I guess my ex wasn’t so wrong after all.
