Average photographers imitate beauty. Great photographers create their own.

Being jobless is super stressful, but I am crossing my fingers.

As much as I’m scared I can’t make it, I am determined to make it in Seattle.

Loving Yourself

Sucks when you wanna sleep, but can’t. So here’s a quick post before I head to bed or try to.

-

Being myself is okay.
Don’t be afraid to be yourself.
Don’t hide yourself.
Don’t dismiss yourself.
Everything you are is what you need to be (unless it’s harmful to someone else).
Constant reminder is okay.
Remember to be gentle on yourself.
Remember to love yourself.
Everything takes time.
Little effort is better than no effort.
Little progress is better than no progress.
Listen to your body.
If you need rest, take a break.
I am valid.
My feelings are valid.
My thoughts are valid.
Remember to breathe.
Design a workflow that suits me.
I don’t have to follow how everyone gets work done.
There are more than one way to finish things.
Go at my own pace.
Stay away from negativity.
Surround myself with beautiful souls.

Breathe.

These two are my original characters.
Not many know this about me. I used to want to be an illustrator / manga artist, but photography came into my life.
I lost my passion for drawing because I felt as though I wouldn’t be able to make a living with it.
I’m still working thru it, but drawing kind of makes me sad cuhs it reminds me of a dream I gave up.

Location: Empire Polo Grounds, Indio, California

Was tryna sleep but fell into the FB hole and found myself before my awake days.
Look at my pre-queer days, when I still identified as gay/lesbian.
Basic Viviann, looking basic lolololol.
This is me at Coachella Fest on a Saturday. Thanks to Grae, I got a free one day pass and I was all close and intimate with drunk, sweaty folks. I don’t remember who was even playing at the time..
