Parisian Love

I love spending hours on youtube, it never feels like a waste of time because I’m always learning something or discovering a new style of filming. I found this link on a post of blog I follow with an honest-to-god depiction of what life as an AP student is really like. And so I started searching more videos like this one because I liked this little take on life through searches.

Then I came across this video and I fell in love. I must’ve watched ten times through before deciding to share it with you all. Isn’t this just the cutest way to share your life in all of it’s honesty?

Torn Away

(written @ 4 on June 28)

There are so few books out there that make me feel. Make me feel everything the main character does like I was right there. Make me feel the anger and passion and love and fear and excitement and sadness. I’ve only read about 10 books that force me to read through the night without a second thought.

That’s why I’m thrilled beyond belief when I can find a book that can make feel these things.

Let me give you an idea to how HARD of a reader I am when I stumble across a book like this. I started this particular book last night around 9, stayed up until 2 in the morning, picked it up again at 10 and finished it at 3 in the afternoon. During that whole time, I never drank or ate anything. I only paused because I promised myself a shower and to do one homework assignment. Then I went straight back to it until I finished.

Let me tell you, my heart is still pounding.

I love getting into a book so much that nothing can distract you. Then afterwords (and this can last for days), I don’t feel like doing much except reading it all over again. I have to either find a book with just as much quality or start some sort of craft project to take my mind off of it.

Music On the Mind

To say that music is a big part of my life would honestly be an understatement. It IS my life. If I didn’t have music, I’d died a terrible death.
I love thinking about sharing my passion for music with others and maybe some day with my own kids. You may say that it’s too early to think about kids, but then you’d be a hypocrite. Everyone thinks about it at least once. But I dream about playing The Beatles, The Zombies, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and The Kinks for my kids everyday, all day (yeah…I have a British thing going on).

Photo Edits

I’m big on editing. I haven’t quite figured out how to get what I want before I shoot, so I just take what I can and hope to edit that later. It’s harder to do when working with real film, but I still do it (bad me!). But I edit a lot on my iphone, and all the apps make it easy. Here are a few of my favorite edits.

I take lots and lots of pictures sometimes, so it’s nice to be able to group them all together and still have them all look cute. I use the Picture Frames app for the group photos, and a lot of other ones to change color and styles on the rest.
