Over the years I've developed the habit of taking "selfies" in front of blank backdrops, and as I was sitting down to write this update about my goings on I thought, what a good time to show you an old selfie, and a new! So first, here I am at 17, looking understandably disgruntled/awkward:
And here's me today - 23 years old, and thankfully mellowed:
It's always too much fun to look back at old photos of yourself and realize the changes that have happened in between those moments. Although not much about me has changed but the length of my hair and general teenage distain for everything, I have experienced so much in the five years between these photos. To best describe what has changed, a brief and simple list:
I got a bachelors degree in photography from Warren Wilson College. I just graduated in May!
I have been in three relationships, but this one I'm in now takes the cake (more on that soon!).
I got my own critters! Wanna see?
I've also successfully rented my own house, and have recently moved into a new apartment that has been a whirlwind of DIY home projects that I'm eager to share!
I've got a folder full of ideas, inspirations, and photos that's been burning a hole in my desktop, and I'm glad I've finally sorted out the time to start sharing them with the Internet again. Check back tomorrow for a look at my most recent show (I've mentioned it here), as well as a random collection of photos I've taken throughout my college years.
