"Ask yourself if what you are doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow."
There's always a calm before the storm and while I already know I'll go into my senior year of college; a year of thesis, a year of "what's next?", a year of a lot of lasts but also a year of firsts, I feel really positive of where I am now and what's coming around the corner.
I will continue this project in the month of July. The June visual journal of this project will be in the Visual Journaling section of my site shortly.
I just finished editing the prints the visual journal July and I'm SO proud/excited/in love with the results. There's just something about finishing a project that was over an extended period that peels off a layer of yourself you never knew you had. While July is still definitely a continue of the exploration of the mundane June displayed, July is a new story. Instead of just capturing ordinary things and placing them in a person's story, I worked on my making my images and little thoughts coherent so it could come together as its own story. July is definitely more of my own personal take of my home, almost as honest ode to everything South County is. While June is more a take of the people I love here and their experiences, viewpoints, and relationship with South County. It's exciting to continue learning and exploring and I am truly looking forward to the feedback I get from Brooke (my BFA mentor/advisor/professor) and others as I begin the road to thesis.
Along with all this photo in my life, I am going back to Oxford working as a graphic design intern at University Sporting Goods. I also will be working as a photographer, editor, designer for 2015-2016 Ole Miss Yearbook.
Senior year, I'm coming for ya!
