UpdateI feel like a bear finally coming out of hibernation.
It has been a very long winter, I still feel it will never end.
The terrible whether has been effecting school, delayed graduation, so much homework. I thought senior year was supposed to be easy going.
Out of everything, it has put a huge damper on my creative spirit and motivation the most.
The little I have done, I would like to update about.
All of my projects have only been for school recently, because, duh, that’s required.
My teacher started us on a weekly project where every Friday/week me must take a 'selfie'.
You can see my progress on my flickr:
The last big project I did for school was an independent project. We were assigned to do whatever we wanted with any kind of photography. I really love portraits and I wanted to use a backdrop and studio lights for the first time. So I found a couple of friends/girls that volu
Computer TroublesI'm having computer troubles right now, so that has been the reason for my lack of activity.
I'm trying to get it fixed, if not it will a long process of getting a new one..
I'm looking forward to getting back on track on here and posting a bunch of new stuff.
As for my Caturday feature, I will be calling it quits for awhile. When I can get a chance I will make the last final feature and more points will up for grabs.
Hope to be back soon
Happy Valentine's Day!Happy Valentine's Day to all my watchers
I hope you all had a fabulous day!
I took pictures of my best friend and her boyfriend yesterday and it was really nice!
Looking forward to not waking up early in the morning tomorrow.
This week has been the first full week of school I have had since December.
Updates on what I have been up to are coming soon!
And I'm postponing Caturday until next week, my apologies

Instax Mini 8 ReviewThe FugiFilm Instax Mini 8 is a fun and cute instant film camera. It’s easy to use, push a button to turn on/pop out the lens and with a press of the shutter; your memories develop right before your eyes.
The mini 8 is extremely light weight and comes in an option of colors: white, black, pastel pink, blue and yellow. I chose the white because for some odd reason white was the cheapest (white was $54 versus the blue which was $80 on Amazon? Same features, just color difference).
It’s dimensions are about 4.5in x 4.8in x2.7in.
What came with the camera, was obviously the camera itself, am attachable wrist strap, two AA/alkaline batteries, and directions included with English. Film does not come with the camera. I had to order it separately, I purchased a two pack with was about $13 dollars.
Each film pack comes with a 10 pieces of film. The film size is comparable to a credit card.
The film has white boarders, but Fujifilm does make all ki
Inspiration-less to the maxRight now, I believe winter has completely ruined me.
For months and months I have been lacking so much energy and creative thinking.
Especially in my photography.
I have missed so much school from all this freaking snow. I can't go anywhere because I live out in the middle of no where and my drive way is blocked.
Everything is just so boring to me.
I can't concentrate in school, I'm half-assing everything I do.
So, you win winter.
You have compete stripped me of y creative energy and you are now my least favorite season. EVER.
Your coldness makes me put my camera down, makes me not want to even pick it up.
You are ugly.
You have cancelled yet another day of school for me. School where the only reason I go is to go to Photo class to get my creative juices flowing and spark whatever fumes are left in my desire to create.
A big middle finger to you winter.
I can't wait for spring.
Instanx Mini 8 is here!It came in the mail today and I was so thrilled.
So far I love it and its so fun.
I'll be writing a review about it later

April Giveaway: 3 month sub!------------

Two 3 month subscriptions, of course
I like doing these when I'm offline for a while. It's my way of apologizing for not keeping my promises to be more active. I'm trying! Thank you to those who continue to support me. It really is great having a backbone of support on devART-- especially when you're in a college full of super talented art MAJORS X'D I'm just a journalist major who really loves writing about her characters and occasionally drawing them.
There are two requirements, as always!
1) Be a watcher.
2) Favorite this journal.
*Otherwise, no rules. If you want to post a comment though, I'd love to talk to you! On a side note, I'm now on the MMO Final Fantasy 14! It's so pretty
And I did a thing! For the first time in forever
And then I returned...It's been a while since I've been actively online.
But even though temporary, it did changed my perspective on some matters.
It's weird how much the internet can become an influence, and how this process goes so unnoticed. At a certain point the countless voices of people around you blend into a continuous buzz. A buzz that you soon get so familiar with that you forget there was a life before it. I guess that's what social media does in general; creating a buzz. An artificial need for you to continuously be online and check your messages, because you might just miss something otherwise. Life, in general, has become so infused with the internet that it sometimes scares me. I'm part of the internet industry. Hell, I even made it my job! But even I sometimes find myself wondering where the time has gone that I could work on an artwork for hours straight, without feeling that creeping itch to check my messages.
The last few weeks before the break, I've repeatedly felt bad about

We Are Resurrecting!:iconwriters-workshop:
Following our previous journal on our zombifiction revival, I am pleased to say it is crazy enough to have a go! I don’t expect every one of our 1500 members to get involved, but even if there is a handful each time getting some good out of this, then that’s one handful getting a better attack on their writing and understanding their niches. These groups hold a great opportunity to explore and stretch even the more experienced writers, and I believe that’s what made this group so good to begin with.
The Plan Batman
So here is my plan.
In May, we will hold a new workshop. The entire workshop will be encapsulated in one month: 2 weeks to write, 2 weeks to workshop.
Week 1, Day 1: Workshop brief is launched and you have 2 weeks to submit. The standard to what you submit can be anything from a rough draft to something you have worked on, it doesn't even have to be complete yet. (Please ensure you pu
Christmas Ornament Contest Results!The Christmas Ornament Contest through my group support-Beginners turned out great!
We got a lot of awesome and creative submissions and the choice was a tough one.
The voting system consisted between myself and SaRaH-22 picking individually our 5 favorites, then asking our boyfriend's to do the same. The 5 most picked photos between all of us were put together then Sarah's little cousin drew the winners!
Here are the results!
First Place: looziker
Other Grand Winners:
Special shout out to all our contestants, you all did a fantastic job!
Go give them some love!
Abandoned ChapelThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together
by silk spindles;
cobwebs align them like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in an broken window
against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic
against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
