someone should just give me a medium format camera for free. I am a poor photography student feed me cameras.
The people in our lives who really care are often forgotten as a constant baseline of life. They are the people who, through thick and thin, will answer our calls and be there to listen when we have something important and, perhaps, boring to say. But their love is often so unglamorous, so necessary to our lives as to be invisible, and the fact that we don’t thank them more for it is nothing short of criminal. So thank you to the real friends, to the people who will be there to pick up the pieces when yet another person we should have known better than to pursue has let us down. Thank you to the people who have held back our hair when we vomited, who picked us up at 3 AM when we couldn’t find a ride, who’ve let us sleep in their beds when we needed a place to crash. Thank you to the love that, by blood or by the chosen familial bonds of best friendship, will always be a part of us and will carry us through the times when we ironically feel that we are completely unlovable. Thank you to the moments that fill our lives so fully that we start to see them blend together, the stories of love that span over decades and count scraped knees, broken hearts, and hospital stays amongst the battle scars they’ve seen. Thank you to real friends, who we can sometimes take for granted, but whom we could never live without.
If you are going to post a picture of yourself please don’t let the caption be “OMG I’m SO UGLY or I LOOK SO STUPID.” Honestly if you really felt that way about the picture you wouldn’t upload it.
So I’m literally looking at Diana’s newspaper photo album on Facebook and almost in tears because all of my little minions and underling and babies are growing up. ohgosh.
and I refuse to look at any of their graduation pictures come June (or in another year KSENIAAA) because then I have to admit that they’re actually human beings and not the kids I still call MY sophomores. (seriously I’m really possessive and protective of them.)
oh my gosh shannon let me hug you through the computer
(i am going to be so sad come graduation, there’s so much i’m going to miss)
