Secret Colonial Kitteh wonders if it’s safe to come out now that Cory’s gone…
great photography of Disney Princesses in “real life” when the fairy tale ends
i spent two hours in bed fighting off a panic attack about doing my project. i think subconsciously i have been sabotaging myself for a long time. i’m burnt out. i’m tired. i am UNHAPPY. and as much as i appreciate the encouragement and kind thoughts, i can’t keep doing this to myself. so, i drove home today and told my dad that i will not be graduating next weekend. he was okay with it. i was terrified and i felt like i let everyone down, when in reality i was beating myself up over being not good enough for a career that makes me physically sick to my stomach. i don’t want a job where my only interaction with people is for a story. i want a job where i can help people, be creative, and be happy. but it’s not about what other people think, anyway. i am finally taking care of myself and fixing two of the worst mistakes of my life: being a photo major and working for the daily tar heel. that’s not to say that everything about those choices was bad; i met some of my very best friends through the dth, and i learned about photography and sometimes did things that i enjoyed. it’s just for the most part i was miserable. so next week i will not be earning a diploma, but i will have reclaimed some sanity.and exactly one week from today, i will get that diploma. things are turning out beautifully.
YAAAYYY GO ALLIE!!! I can’t wait to graduate with you :)
I want these. I’m also impressed with myself that I’m proficient in all of these pillows.
I’m really not old enough to grow up yet. What the hell are they thinking giving me not one, but two degrees??
This is my friend Elyssa. She’s awesome. And in this photo, she’s proudly displaying my one and only goal for the next two weeks.
