Everybody has their thing. Something they're good at. Something that makes them feel valuable. Until this year, I had never found my thing. I'm bad at sports. Too stage fright to do performing arts. Not artistic enough to do 2d or 3d art. Okay at school. Okay at a lot of other things. But there has never been something I've been good at. 

But this year I truly fell in love with photography. I mean, I loved photography before, but now it's something different. This year I realized the true meaning of photography, it's not to just snap everything in sight, it requires thought and sometimes taking 10 good pictures is a lot more rewarding than 200 okay ones. I realized that it's quality over quantity. And shooting film made me love photography even more, when you actually have to think about it because you only have 24 or 36 shots and you can't see them right away, it really does bring the creativity back into photography.

yeah, photography is definitely my thing.

a blog post in which i compare my self to hannah montanta

shirt - pimkie (french store)
skirt - j.crew
shoes - steve madden

sometimes i feel as if i live a double life, which in part i do. two instagrams, two twitters, two claires. I don't know why I don't want to tell anyone from school that I have a blog, I just don't. It freaks me out that if people knew, they would have such insights to my thoughts that they would know me better than i feel comfortable with. Sometimes its easier to share your life with complete strangers than people you know, I can't be the only one who feels this way?

It's just that most people at my school don't value things like blogging, and i know that I would be made fun of for it. People at my school just wouldn't understand how much blogging means to me and what a great community this is, they just wouldn't, at my school you're not considered successful unless you play a sport or are good at science, and i feel like blogging would just be looked at as downright weird. Although maybe i am weird... EMBRACE THE WEIRDNESS
