One Year =)Hey everyone!I just wanted to mention that today it has been one year since I posted my first deviation. I know on my profile, it says I've been a member for 4 years...but I only became active a year ago. I'm so appreciative of all the feedback I've gotten and I never thought I would get so many followers. Thank you thank you thank youI'm also very proud of how much I have learned about photography and editing. I see myself improving a little more with every shoot and that means so much to me. Here's a recap of some fun moments from the past year:The Messiest:The Wettest:The ones where timing was so crucial:The Uncomfortable:LASTLY:The Most Proud of:
SHORT UPDATEHey Everyone I just wanted to give everyone a quick update, as I haven't did a personal journal in awhile. I'm almost done school for this year. I have 3 exams and they'll be done next Friday. I'm so thrilled! I've been feeling so much more like an artist than a biologist lately, so it's been sort of hard to stick it out. I'm already starting to feel better knowing it's almost over and I made it through. In May, it will be one year since I've started posting on deviantart. I'm so grateful for all the feedback-- and my amazing ~270 watchers! I feel I have learned so much about photography, not only from practicing myself but from other deviants. This truly is an amazing site for learning, sharing, and finding art. So, for Summer vacation, my main goal is just to build on my gallery. I only have 53 photos, and I'd love to increase this number! I'm going to have my camera out everyday I swear. It will be great! &

SPEECHLESSSo I went to see Lady GaGa in Toronto on Saturday. It was so inspiring--the way she uses her creativity in song, performance, and fashion. She has a lot of dance tunes, but even beyond the catchy beat are amazing lyrics that mean something. This video is of my favourite song by Lady GaGa. Unfortunately, she didn't sing this song on Saturday, but this performance is amazing! Enjoy it! She's not all about crazy outfits and stunts. There's actually such a creative drive in her.So...What's new with me?Well, I've been thinking about my next cosplay for a few conventions coming up. I was looking through a bunch of female characters, seeing which ones I could pull off. But, I don't know. I'm not really attached to anyone like I am to Poison Ivy. I feel like I can't be anyone else, simple because I AM Poison Ivy. SO! I was thinking about doing her again, but a different look. She has quite a different look in the N

RIDE - PART II"I was always an unusual girl, my mother told me that I had a chameleon soul.No moral compass pointing me due north, no fixed personality.Just an inner indecisiviness that was as wide and wavering as the ocean.And if I said that I didn't plan for it to turn out this way I'd be lying- because I was born to be the other woman.I belonged to no one- who belonged to everyone,who had nothing- who wanted everything.With a fire for every experience and an obssesion for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn't even talk aboutand pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzled and dizzied me"--Lana Del Rey
FEEL AGAINI think it's really easy to forget how to feel.I think we all get so comfortable in feeling the same way day in and day out, that it becomes hard to break those chains.When we start feeling something new, it's unfamiliar and terrifying.So we unconsciously retreat back to what we know how to feel.By doing so, we allow ourselves to be numb.Let's not do this anymore.Let's feel again.
LET IT GO"If I were you I'd let it goAnd feel it all over inside like a chemicalCause to tell the truth I dont know if its ever overWe don't need a cure for the weight of the worldCause its floating round in the universeJust swinging like its tied by a string that you holdAnd let it go"See ya later 2012 !!!!!For 2013, I'll be doing the 52-week photo challenge simply because I'm happiest when taking pictures. It's so easy to lose sight of what's important when engulfed by the daily routine of school and work, not to mention the suppression of creativity. It turns out I'm much more proud of the photos I take than the A's I get in University. So, this year will be different. I will make my happiness just as big of a responsibility as earning a paycheck and finishing my assignments. That's all I really want from the year. I will let everything go. I will feel better and I will do better things. It's all going to be better.
