Hey everyone, long time no talk! I just wanted to give you all a bit of an update about what's been going on with me. I know I haven't been all that present in the web world lately, and though I miss it, it's because times have been changing. I'm a sophomore in college studying journalism, and believe it or not, journalism is a pretty extensive major at my school. I've been quite busy with projects and other assignments. And I've been getting pretty good at interviewing people! Haha.
I've been spending a lot of time doing photography lately, and I've been trying to post some of my favorite pieces here when I get them. I just got a new camera a week or so ago, and I LOVE it. I now shoot with the Nikon d7100, which is a lovely upgrade from my old d3100. I am still very much a Nikon girl. And oh, that 50mm lens. <3
I also got a macbook pretty recently, and because of the computer switch, I lost a lot of my textures and such. Until I find the motivation to download a bunch of new ones, I don't see any digital art or collages/blends in my near future. But never say never! I've missed making them, so who knows?
I've been heavily involved with my school's cru organization as well, this year. Cru is a Christian organization that is found on many college campuses. The group at my school is quite small, but I've made so many great friends and gained so many amazing experiences through cru. I went on retreat with my campus this fall and then I went to cru conference this past December: both of which were wonderful.
I don't feel like I've talked a lot about my faith on here before, but I feel that it is worth noting because it plays a big role on my life perspective and my artistic angle. It's the reason for my optimism and happiness. It's the source of peace in my life at times when most people would be going crazy. God is my inspiration and my comforter. He is my light and my hope. I know that not everybody feels this way or will agree with me, and that's okay. I just feel that it's important for people to know, as they look into my art or want to know me better. And I'm totally open to discuss my faith with you if you are interested in knowing more. I won't bite. I won't judge. Just send me a note if you have any questions or comments and I will gladly talk to you more.
Cru may also be taking me to Australia this summer, which is a super exciting prospect. More details to come!
Anyways, I hope you are all doing well! I'll leave you all with this question: what's valuable or imporant in your life right now? Why? Comment below!
