im back.

from nyc! and i feel great!
i loved new york so much, i really got to see so much of it, even though i was only there for a short period of time. it was nice to see life through all of my friends perspectives, you know.. how they get around, what they do on a daily basis. i really appreciate the city life so much, people and culture everywhere! its just not the same where i live. i love that there is life everywhere, at all times of the day and night- people expressing themselves through art and music all around the city! its just a beautiful place, i really enjoyed my time there and was able to capture a lot of my memories in pictures to remember my trip to NY. i slept in 3 cities, all completely diverse and different. i will definitely be saving up so i can make more trips out there, shoot... maybe id even live there! i dont know, im a florida girl, i love and appreciate where i live so much... theres really nothing like driving down A1A riding out with some dope music on. in new york you have to give up your space and privacy, but city lifestyle can really be something else. there are so many inspirational and driven people all around you, theres a different vibe in New York that i've just never felt in any other place. i dont know though, we'll see!

on another positive note, i was able to relive my childhood days with my amazing friend, Kira, or should i say Vesper T. Woods? Kira and i met back in 6th grade, we got along because we were both huge dorks who had big puffy bangs and an obsessively weird addictions to shoes! ill never forget the day before my 6th grade trip to Milton Florida when i met Kira Madden. The president of our school was giving us a lecture before our trip, just to remind us to behave. I was sitting close to this girl, who happened to be giggling at the same thing i was..... the presidents pants were riding up his legs pretty tightly, and it was hysterical. ever since that day, weve been"mad tight." Ive always had a huge respect for Kira, she is an individual to the fullest extent and laughs at conformity. she stands out with her unique interests and her drive for her all of her diverse passions is inspiring! during my trip, kira took me to a viewing of a short film that she has been working, all i can say is WOW. who would have thought there was so much that we dont know about each other. shes really doing her thing, shes even working on her own book, and it will be published by next year, you better stick to your goal my love! im so glad that shes really finding herself, and it amazes me that to this day im confident that kira and i will ALWAYS be friends. sure, ive said this about numerous people, and when i say numerous.. i mean 8 people have really screwed me over badly the last year, on top of losing 2 best friends in car accidents, it sure is hard to know if the people in your life will stick around. ive learned that in order to be happy with the people IN your life, you need to know that letting go of people is also part of this. its what you make of it, and how we go about things..... and i know that ill keep her along with many other friends in my life. its so important to me to keep these friendships going, because even though were physically in different places and doing completely different things, our past and the memories we made are what brings us together. these people that im speaking about are the same friends that i can giggle with over silly things today, just as we have for years. so yea, to old and new friendships! theres plenty out there to be happy about. although consistent bullshit keeps occuring, im blessed to be an optimist and make sure that i come out strong. i couldnt thank the people i love enough for doing an amazing job of loving me =D

to those who have made me weak and chosen to disrespect me (and i know the majority of you read this blog), here is a message to you:

thank you... because i've never been stronger.

i believe that people make mistakes. its how one learns from the mistakes and chooses to better his or herself that makes one a good person.

with that said, i believe that people can change.

peace & love.
