Pastel Things

I am so sorry my posting has been so...snail's pace :P School, work, friends--the whole high school caboodle has been rapidly and remorselessly devouring all my time and I sincerely apologise. I also am sorry that most of these posts aren't my original photography anymore...I promise you, I have been taking pictures, it just takes forever to get them online, then edit them, then post them, I find it so much quicker these days just to browse other blogs and pinterest and the like. But I promise I will be posting my own photography soon--never fear :)

 This picture is amazing....the film looks so cool!

Best tiny frog picture ever :)

Best. keyboard. ever. I wants it :)

Oh yeah. One more owl picture. Just for the extra awesomeness:)

My life has been so crazy lately. I know I haven't been writing much about my personal life lately, at least not as much as I used to. Alot has been going on with me lately, and I'm not sure how to describe it. This past semester, I've felt like I'm a butterfly that was shoved out of its chrysalis before it was ready. I went from home schooled all through middle school and high school, to being full time on a secular college campus. It's been a weird transition, but not a bad one on the whole. I adjusted well to classes, the assignments were pretty manageable, I made friends, I met a seemed really wonderful. But what I didn't realize was as I was going along, caring so much about fitting in with my new friends, I forgot the one Person who actually matters. Jesus.
I'm not going to be one of those pansies that pretends everything about their Christian walk is perfect even when it isn't. I may not be a perfect Christian, but I know better than to do that.
It's been hard, I'm not going to deny it. I feel like my priorities, my hopes and desires, what should come first, it's all tangled up in my head. As I entered school, I felt I finally had a chance to be something other than the homeschooler. I had a chance to have a life, to have a ton of friends that i could see practically every day, to have a normal life. But as I went on...I began to realize that if I didn't put Christ first, seek Him and His Kingdom and His Righteousness (Matthew 6:33) FIRST, , my life was going to get pretty lopsided, and that's exactly what happened.
My attitude started to take a downward spiral and I lacked direction in so many different areas.
But last week I finally broke down and talked with my mom about it, and I'm going to try to bring my life back on track again, to better than it was before. Could y'all pray for me? It's been a rough time, and I need as much prayer as I can get..but I'm really starting to feel more hopeful.
I always forget how powerful God is, how much I need him and how much I need to be thankful for.
If anyone could bring me back on track, it's Him.
That's my little outpouring of the soul...any prayers would be greatly appreciated.
Love you girls!!

Serenity Captured.

I had the best day at the beach the other day. I didn't touch the water, just walked around with my camera taking pictures. The lighting, the angles, the shapes, the was beautiful, praise God! Sometimes I forget how much I truly love photography, I'm constantly surrounded by the same scenery, but when I go somewhere's amazing. I had such a good time, and I hope you guys enjoy these pictures as much I loved taking them :)

As for me...I've been having an awesome time. God blessed me with a few friends in all my classes,  I went out to lunch at a local restaurant McGuire's Irish Pub with my friends from english was so much fun!

For all y'all homeschoolers out there--if dual enrollment is an option in your town--DO IT. I don't care how shy or socially awkward you think you are, college will be good for you. It's been amazing for me :)
Have a great weekend y'all!!
(Oh yeah. I'm breakin my southern gurl accent y'all :P)
