Straight Signals...

 So much have been going on that I don't know if I am walking backwards or forward. The end is near... of school that is, so for the past couple of weeks I could not taken any photos or blog, can I be totally honest?, I felt depressed! Photography is just a hobby of mine; I never thought I would of take so much interest in such beauty, it is the greatest invention, and the great escape. I can look at them over and over again and all take me back to a special place where ever or what ever that is. It is blissful to actually have something you did not know you love to do so much just wordlessly slip into your hands. I just want more and more of it, I find myself everyday just looking for beauty, love, and appreciation. He gives us everything we need to indulge in every moment...

Bad Girls (Verdine version)...

 The song of the summer for me, even though the season has not started - Bad girls (Verdine version) by Solange is on constant rotation to the point that I want to live through the friggin song. These past couple of days were a blur, it is the last couple of weeks of school and I truly am stressed.... So when you hear on the news that some crazy black girl is running around the streets butt naked, jumping for joy, screaming "ITS FRIGGIN OVER"... don't panic, it's just me.... school had just let out for summer

Around the way...

 We finally hit 80 degrees in New York and I just could not help myself! I needed to feel that quick stinging sensation that causes a spread of goosebumps across your body. Even though it is too early for tank tops, who cares?! This burn-out crop top from Forever 21 was perfect and the color is great for this season. I have never owned a white bottom piece in my life, only because I travel on the subways often, and it is hard to keep white clean with New York's dirty stations and trains (or even from walking down the street, anything can happen!). However, this year is different, I randomly bought this white high-wasited denim jeans from American Apparel and it fits divine!

Rambling the clutter...

 How much information are we allowed to take in before we lose it? Before education was not so imperative... what did people do then? We, of course, learned from our environment, Mother Nature was our teacher. Study shows that students today spend way more of their time on Homework than on anything else... really? If that is the case... where is my time machine?...  All this work deprives you from creativity, from being yourself and it clutters your mind. Granted, yes some of the information will help in the long run but I highly doubt Physical Education (that is just one mentioned course, Let not talk about Philosophy! oh no...) will. I live in the United States... where everyone is considered "obese". So why am I taking this again?

Something isn't adding up here...

Long way to go...

 For the past couple of months a good friend of mine and me have been planning to do a mini shoot for his portfolio. Being that we have school and "had" jobs it became too difficult. Spring Break allowed us to at least work for a day so I can't wait to share his work with you... His photos, my edit...

The outfit here is very simple. I bought the African print inspired top from the Afro Punk Festival in Brooklyn and the tights are American Apparel. The shoes are from Steve Madden.

Today is the first day back to class, you know after Spring Break that is when the real damn work begins. I am not looking forward to school right now especially since I recently found out that I have to stay an extra semester for only TWO! classes. So I am taking two classes in the Fall and two classes in the Spring (Next friggin year). I am going to try and talk myself out of this because I am sick and tired of school. I am tired of paying money that I do not have. Yes, school is imperative, however at the end of the day, it is a business. They have to make their money too, and I am tired of giving them money I don't have. I don't want to take out more loans... So it looks like I am going to have a long year.
