They’re intriguing, interesting, admirable or off beat
Musician, singer, producer, banjo playing bad ass.
& sometimes its just because they are just plain hot.
I enjoy reading content on my page, actual content. Yeah the memes are hilarious and the pictures of girls in broken positions with enormous rings on are pretty - but i’m not learning anything.
I want to get to know people, laugh with them, read parts of their brain/heart and see a scrapbook of their life. Whether that be through music they post, charts they make, doodles they draw, pictures they create or words they put together - i’m getting to know them. It’s personal and approachable.
My dashboard is like a collection of books I have spread out all over the floor and i’m in the middle of reading every single one of them. Different genres, different manifestos and different elements. It’s a library that I’ve raided with a few “EverythingHarryPotter” and “GreendaleGifs” in between. I don’t need the noise of constant reblogs asking me what my favorite color is or typography over somebodies face with a razor in their hand.
That’s just how I like it.
(PS. and sometimes I never see who’s following me unless they make contact.)
I got a surprise present from my older brothers this afternoon. Tickets to the Vans Warped Tour in Virgina Beach! Since i’m moving July 23rd my brothers wanted to do one last ho-rah as a family before we split for a while until the holidays.
I’m stoked, we’re going a couple days before to hang out on the beach and hit up a lot of bars. Last time we did this was the summer I graduated high school and was heading to UCLA, we drove down to Miami and spent a week there getting wasted on the beach. Maybe I just need to keep heading to the west coast in order for them to do fun things with me.
When my niece comes over she likes watching Arthur on netflix (c’mon who doesn’t?) and since a lot of classic Nickelodeon shows have been put on instant play she gets uber geeked out when her hour of TV time is approaching. But most of the time if shes with me downstairs I let her watch Netflix until i’m done doing what I have to do.
This evening however she got put in time out and lost her privilege of the hour of TV. Since I leave my laptop open for her to play Dora The Explorer or whatever computer game she wants, she likes climbing on my bed to play a video game or paint on the doodle pad (yeah, super trusting aunt over here). She knows how to get to netflix through my laptop as well since its saved and I showed her. Needless to say, my mom looked at the instant play queue and saw today “Ahhhhh! Real Monsters!” (7 episodes to be exact) were played today. My mom figured Christianna was watching TV shows rather than doing her educational games. Punishment ensued.
What my mom didn’t realize was that her 25 year old daughter watches “Ahhhh! Real Monsters!” and in fact watched all 7 of those episodes this morning while developing pictures and slicing up film. Since I’ve been gone all afternoon/evening I wasn’t home to defend Christianna and speak on her innocence, instead she went and did her prison stint and has been sulking ever since. She didn’t even argue back or claim to be innocent, she just gave the sad face and left my room.
Just because I don’t tell you my every single trivial thought that comes through my mind doesn’t give you the asshole card to throw at me and call me “Closed off.” I’m not closed off, I just don’t feel the need to narrate my mind to you.
I’ll open up on my terms, when i’m ready and when i’m comfortable. You make it seem like i’m thinking about the worst in you or i’m pinning over you. There’s no middle ground. For your information, more than likely i’m probably thinking about things that have nothing to do with you or just daydreaming. I could be thinking of nothing at all, just feeling hungry.
Your constant need to be “in the know” will cause me to snap and it will benefit nobody in the end and you will be alone.
SNIP SNIP! I’m actually convincing myself that I won’t freak out, you’d think I’d be cool with it since one side is already cut off. I’m getting the most lesbian hair cut ever, I got my excited face on.
To finally put this question to rest and out of my messages I will tell you what I use.
BROKEN EQUIPMENT. Every single piece of photography equipment I own is broken in one way or another.
Body: Canon Rebel Xti Problem: something inside of it raddles which means a part broke off somewhere down the road. Numerous of things have fallen off on it, including the rubber eye viewer protector. It’s 4 years old. The grip is almost rubbed off and it has numerous of scratches all on the side and bottom. Why: because it has been through every terrain and weather possible. It’s actually been used every single day since I first got it.
Lenses: Canon 18mm-58mm Standard lens (Broken this was converted into a filter for a film look), Canon telephoto 55mm-250mm (broken), Canon telephoto 58mm-400mm (untouched). I use my 58mm & 250mm the most when I go digital.
Flash: Canon 420EX that has to be duct taped to keep the batteries in and the flash shield is broken off.
Film: Holga Color Type 89, Holga B&W Type 88, Canon T80, 600film Polaroid, and sometimes my double shot. All these cameras are used and have something wrong with them, they either have a hole which leaks light or are only good for one shot. I go through a lot of Holgas.
Filters: I just go on ebay and buy any filter I can, they come in various colors and variations.
Tripods: It’s broken, I actually have a stick taped to one side.
Remote: It’s not even wireless.
This is all that I use. I have nothing new but two lenses but one is already broken. All my photography has been taken on used things mostly and i’m guessing I just luck out with what I shoot. So if people continue to tell you that you get better pictures with newer and expensive equipment, I’ve been doing fine with shit thats dented, scratched and has to be hit in order to turn on.
Today I went on a joy ride with my mom and the dogs around my town. It was a beautiful evening with mushroom clouds. I left my lomo lens and filter on my camera the whole time and here were my results. for full wallpaper size you can go to my flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/hip-hop/) and go through them there. I hope you enjoy.
