Go like my photography on facebook?

I will seriously cry if/when I get to 500 likes.
So seriously, if you’ve ever enjoyed any of my work that I’ve posted, please go like it. It would mean a lot to me. 

I feel like I’m on top of the world right now.

Scream It Like You Mean It was perfect last night. Got to see all my friends in In Fear And Faith, which is always lovely. AND got a ton of awesome photos, two of which I’ve already released and I’ve overwhelmed by the amazing feedback I’ve gotten. AND  I got to do some photos for Adam Warren’s clothing company today, which will be released soon.
Basically, I feel like I’m living my dream and I couldn’t be happier. 

I had a dream last night that I got to photograph a My Chemical Romance show.

Now, I know that I don’t love them like I used to. But I was JUST talking to my dad about how if I ever got to photograph MCR, my life would come full circle. They are THE BAND that made me so passionate about music, which in turn made me passionate about photography and photographing shows.
So, this is me (being lame and using the law of attraction) and putting it out into the universe that ONE DAY I will photograph a My Chemical Romance show.
I don’t care if it’s a month from now or five years from now.
It’s going to happen, and I’m going to be the happiest girl in the world. 

I’m legit about to do irish carbombs with my mom, grandma, and aunt.

This should be interesting.

Biggest pet peeve:

When people tell me how to run my business/take my photos without me asking them.
If I wanted your advice, I’d ask for it. 

My boys in letlive. were incredible tonight, but that goes without saying.

I feel really inferior when I go to shows cause every girl I see has perfect hair and perfect makeup and is dressed all cute and I’m all like “hi lol I haven’t showered all day and I’m wearing jeans and a tshirt”. And then to top it all off they spend all night in the pit and come out still looking flawless and I come out all gross and sweaty and frumpy. Fuck everything man.

I’m so fucking done trying to be a good friend to people who don’t listen/don’t appreciate it. When you get fucked over by someone I’ve WARNED you about, don’t come crying to me.

Can I just rant really quick?

Well too bad, I’m doing it anyway.

I just really can’t stand it when a girl goes on dates with a guy/leads him on/ect… even though she’s not emotionally available. Seriously, get your fucking shit together before you get involved with him. You’re making yourself out to be a bitch.

And you wonder why people think you’re bat shit crazy. 

My best friend from when I was little - the girl that I grew up watching Barney and Lion King with - just added me on facebook. I haven’t talked to her in a little over a year because my phone number changed and I lost hers and we weren’t talking very often before that.

She didn’t really have the best childhood. Her and her two sisters all had different fathers, their mother was always drunk, and none of them ever really had a father figure. My mom always took her nice places with us and did nice things for her because she didn’t want to see her end up like her mom. We wanted her to have a good life.

Anyway, long story short, a few years ago she started dating this really sketchy guy and started getting into a lot of trouble.

I haven’t talked to her in over a year and she just made a facebook so she could find me and tell me that she’s going to jail for 2 years. I want to cry. I feel like if I had only tried harder to get ahold of her, if I had only gone to her mom’s house and asked about her a year ago, that maybe she wouldn’t be where she is now.

I miss her.

Fucking wonderful

Welp. Laptop has a virus. Did all the steps to kill it and it’s still not working properly. Fuck everything. I seriously should just never own nice things…

Food for thought

It doesn’t matter how many likes your band has on facebook.
What matters is how many people come to your shows and support you.

Watching wife swap and there’s a super religious lady who’s sobbing and calling the kids freaks cause they have piercings. Then she finds out that they’re Christians and feels like an asshole. Hmm… Maybe if you loved everyone like the bible said, you wouldn’t have that problem.
