Putting Yourself Out There

putting yourself out there

There are a few moments from my childhood that stick out to me. One of them is of my mom chastising me for always keeping things inside. She wanted me to express myself, express my feelings more. I’ve been struggling with this more than I thought. I’ve been stuck these past few years. In many ways, it feels as though I grown so much. Yet in others, I can feel my regression and it frustrates me. But, why? Why has

Regretting my camera system choice

Olympus OMD E-M10 mark II

“The best camera is the one you have with you.” And that’s true. You can take great photos with any camera, whether it’s the one on your phone or a polaroid or one of those toy cameras.

Do you hate your art?

Right now, I have around four paintings laying around unfinished. The enthusiasm that I had when I first began painting has faded away. Don’t get me wrong I still love painting just as much as I did before. However, I have been hating what I’ve been painting lately. The four unfinished paintings I have, remain unfinished because of that feeling. During the process of each piece I’d find myself being hit by a wave of dissatisfaction. Dissatisfaction with the subject

Who is your poetry about?

who is your poetry about

I’ve always been apprehensive about sharing my poetry. My poetry is something I’ve always kept to myself in the notes app on my phone. I’ve always wanted to have people read it, simply to see what they think or whether they like it or not. Sometimes a friend of mine would go through the apps or photos on my phone. And I would hope that they’d go through the notes app as well and give it a read through. So
