Are you fucking kidding me
I didn’t realize how long I haven’t actually been on Tumblr, and although I’m feeling a little nostalgic, these unread asks are making me feel a bit sad.
I thank those of you that still try to keep in touch with me, for those of you that still continue to read my posts, whether they be old or new, and for those of you that simply listen to my playlist still. I thank you all for still giving me something that feels unconditional, even though it’s digital.
I’ll keep in touch.
From my long-exposures to simple candids, or even photos of graffiti, looking back at what I’ve seen this summer really makes me wonder where all the time had gone. I’ve met a bunch of individuals with a plethora of personalities and different perspectives, I conquered my fears and reached heights I had only dreamed of before, and I have made enough memories to suit me up for death to come. If it wasn’t for the spontaneous adventures, the countless conversations over Thai food, the rooftop ledges and trespassing, or me simply having a choice in what I decided would hurt me or not, I wouldn’t be who and where I am now. People coming and going is something I learned when I was young, but we meet certain people for a reason, even if they become irrelevant later on. We experience the things we do because that’s what makes us individuals. We do this and that, sometimes hoping to find something to help us figure out who we really are, and the things we think we’re missing. Our life is always what we make of it, but I’m not on a soul-searching mission anymore because I’m finally happy with who I am and I am thankful for this blessed life.
Went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the first time today, and I never knew how mesmerizing the sea was. Nature is fucking tight.
In case I’m not here tomorrow, I’m hoping I can borrow a piece of mind; I’m behind on what’s really important.
Her name is Lindsay, and this is a #tbt. My homie Stanley, told me this couple just got engaged on Baker Beach, and I screamed and ran towards them in a congratulatory, non-threatening manner. Then about 5 more of my photographer homies came running down with their cameras. She was absolutely hysterical because no one was there to record this moment, so she asked her fiancé if he had planned for my friends and I to photograph for them. “I didn’t, I swear!” He was surprised too.
“This is so perfect,” she said in tears, “I am so happy.”
