daufuskie island

I took these on a little family summer vacation to Daufuskie Island in South Carolina.  These are extremely overdue but always better late than never, right?

something worth disposing

Over the summer I used a disposable camera to take pictures at the beach so I wouldn't ruin my nice ones; unfortunately, I have no idea where that camera went.  I was heart broken for a little while but life moves on...right? So, to redeem myself, I got another disposable camera and tried it again.  It's definitely a funny thing to use.  It has it's quirks, and I'm pretty sure this one's viewfinder was off, but overall the pictures turned out cool enough for me.  AND, the best part is, you can get it developed at a drug store in ONE HOUR! No more waiting weeks and weeks for the film to be on my doorstep! I think you could say I'm hooked.

wonderfully merry

While it feels like Thanksgiving was only last week, Christmas is actually here (well...4 more days)! I've decorated the trees, made some sugar cookies, wrapped presents, argued with family (always necessary during the holidays), and filling the rest of the days with Christmas songs, peppermint, and hot chocolate.  Now that finals are over and I'm home for the holidays, it's nice to spend time with my family and focus on all of them without all the little distractions of school.  

Have a wonderfully merry Christmas!

pro·cras·ti·na·tion [proh-kras-tuh-ney-shuh n, pruh
the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention

Yep, that basically sums up my life this past semester.  Now that I'm on winter break, it's becoming clear I really like the adrenaline of waiting until the last possible minute to get something done. From exams, papers, more exams, that was easy to see, but also with people, relationships, outings, life plans, ect.  No need to get into the gritty details but I do think while time is quickly flying by, I sit around pretending things aren't happening, and then it's too late.  Good think I've got 3 weeks to work through these foggy emotions and reinvent my motivation. 

PS: These pictures were taken on my Diana F+ on a roll that lasted about a year and then took another 6 months for me to drag my butt to the camera shop to get them developed...oops...hence the need to rid myself of this bad habit of procrastination. 

Love Always,
