Whew! Things got a little serious here yesterday! My knee jerk reaction is to say, "Sorry!" But, I'm not going to apologize, because I think it's important to keep the integrity of this blog. I love all the comments, readers, and friends I have made during my time blogging, but at the end of the day this blog is for me (and my future children, hopefully.)

I'm a crap journalist and photos can only tell so much of a story. I love the storybook effect of photos and words in daily posts organized chronilogically. It's just so organized and clean. I love it. I love browsing my archives from high school and being able to bring back that exact time with the pictures I took and the words I wrote. So, as much as I love sharing and making new friends, this blog is very much my (used to be) private space where I chronicle my life.

I think it's important to not dwell on negativity, but it's also important to be a real person with depth. I don't ever want to appear like a 2 dimensional person who never has any feelings other than happiness. SO. If you don't like the honest posts, then skip over them, because they aren't stopping any time soon!

In other news... I did a photoshoot last week in Soho with the cutest Shira! (See the first batch here and watch for the next!) Afterwards, we stopped at Chobani! I have never had a better yogurt! Oh, and if you like coffee, they do beautiful latte art.

You HAVE to add this place to your New York list. I got the regular yogurt with blueberries, strawberries, and coconut flakes. The coconut flakes MADE it. They were like, crunchy... kinda like slivered almonds? But coconut? AMAZING. Go here.

My First Vlog!

Wednesday, October 21, 2015
Hello hello! I am sick right now. I literally haven't been sick in like, probably two years. I ate some sore throat drops yesterday that made me even MORE sick, haha! Anyway, as much as I hate being sick, it's kind of nice to just sleep all day and let your body heal itself.

Today's post is the vlog from when I visited Bev! Sorry in advance for all the shakyness. I'm the worse vlogger we decided! Bev made some videos too that I'll post once they're up. You guys have to see my "suitcase" because I am so proud lol! Anyway, watch it if you dare.

I'm still not sure about my feelings towards vlogging. I thought it was fun when I was with Bev, but I don't feel like my actual life is that interesting to anyone. Maybe when I move to New York haha.

Chandler, Arizona: Day 1

Saturday, October 17, 2015
YOU GUYS. My friend Beverly was nice enough to let me come visit her in Arizona earlier this week. I feel like Bev and I go wayyyyyy back. We've been friends pretty much since when I started blogging. We've hung out a time or two when she's been in Utah and it's been great fun. After I discovered Allegiant's super cheap flights when we went to San Francisco to visit Leah, I thought it would be fun to go to Arizona too! I chatted Bev up and BAM. Friends IRL again.

To start the day off, we went for breakfast at Peixoto. It was soooo good. I loved the latte art the most, but my chocolate croissant was a close second. They had this tea called Cascara that I wanted to try but didn't. So, if any of you try it let me know how it tastes! :)

Gwen was such a trooper accompanying us everywhere ha! She is seriously the cutest. I stayed in her room. The first morning I was there she found me in her bed and just stood there staring at me for a good 3 minutes. It was the funniest thing. I think she liked me alright and didn't mind me stealing her room ;)

Guys, I tried on of those wrap around braids. I liked it, except for the fact some guy in a car thought it was a short haircut and that I was a lesbian! Ha! We were walking down the street and this guy leaned out his window and yelled at us, "F****** LESBIANS!!!!" We were so confused for a while, until we decided that my hair probably looked like a really short cut to him. (He was still a jerk though lol.) It was the funniest part of our day for sure. We decided that being mistaken for lesbians means we're at the true height of our friendship :)

Bev took us to Liberty Market for lunch!

Mega lol at the employee I just realized in this picture!!

Isn't it the cutest little street?! 

The caprese salad, grilled cheese sandwich, and caprese pasta salad. I don't know what they do to their mozzarella cheese, but it was hands down the best I've ever had. It's impossible for me to not order caprese salads if they are on the menu ha!

We also tried a kouign-amann for dessert and it was pretty good. I have been wanting to try it ever since reading the one at Les Madeline's in Salt Lake is one of the top ten desserts in Utah. Whoa!

We spent the rest of the night chatting and buying everything pumpkin spice at Target (literally lol). It was SO NICE to be with a friend who understood the picture taking and video making haha. Miss you, Bev! <3

Your Magic's Real So Why Aren't You Using It?

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Tbt the old blog when my titles were from songs. I want to bring some of the old blog characteristics back sometimes, but then I'm like, "You're an adult now!" But I just decided that titling your blog posts with song lyrics isn't angsty, right? Right?! RIGHT?!

How do people work full time jobs and still blog? And also keep up on other people's blogs? I get home at 5:30 (If I'm lucky.) and the last thing I want to do is look at a computer screen. Haha not really, but I usually end up making food and doing random life tasks. I have hundreds of posts in my blog roll! Ah! I haven't read blogs in soooooo long. I'm sorry blogworld. I have failed you. :/

I still like blogging, but I've also realized that it's not something that's important to me. I think it's more a place to put my photography. When I don't take pictures I get so depressed and annoyed that I'm a "corporate robot". But when I don't blog I'm just like, "Ok." 

It's weird because prior to graduating college and getting a full time job I thought that I would always love blogging. I honestly thought I would always have a blog and that I would feel so empty without it. But now, I think I would be 100% fine haha. I more so like the connection I make in the blogging world and the organization it gives my life. 

Anyway, I have just been thinking about this lately and it's just weird to feel so neutral about something I was once so passionate about.

Change is weird and sometimes I can't decide if it's bad or good. I feel like the transition from my old blog to this new blog is one I think about a lot. I can't decide if it was bad or good. On one hand, I can't get cyberbullied for any stupid thing I said when I was a teenager. But on the other hand, I have erased my whole history online so you guys only know as far back to when I met Jake. Up until I started college I was really artsy and took cool pictures and wrote cool poems. Even that first year produced some pretty good pieces of art because of all the shiz that happened. They weren't amazing, but they were honest and true. 

I had so much angst that fueled all of that. But then when I met Jake I became a real adult who didn't experience angst 24/7. I know that part of that is good, but a part of me wishes I could publish that old blog and let it back into the cyberworld. I feel like I now censor a huge part of my life because I'm scared of the backlash I might get if I say I'm voting for Hilary and I hate living in Utah. I've only ever had serious backlash about one thing I wrote, but it was harsh enough that I never want to put risky things on this space again. I have a lot of opinions and a lot to say, but I don't ever want to offended anyone. I'm just a 21-year-old girl with limited life experience so what do I really know anyway?

It's just weird, I guess. Change.
