A few words for an open ear.

Your mind can be a crazy, wild thing.... mine is no exception. I'm a college student who loves music, movies and girls. I play guitar, am learning piano and have a heart bigger than what I know what to do with, cliché right? I care a lot about anything and everything, I'm passionate and driven and fairly misunderstood. I've been hurt more than once, but continue to pick myself up and keep walking.... My endgame is... well what is everyones? to be happy.

Venture in if you desire, I hope that possibly someone reading can connect and relate and maybe realize that what goes through your head isn't always as crazy as you might think. I'd like to say greetings and welcome to my mind :]

I don’t hold grudges b/c holding them takes too much energy

I’m still not sure if this is a good thing or not

I think one of the things I love the most about photography is not that it is interesting to look at,that you can hang it on the wall or that you can travel the world through a series of pictures. I love photography because I can take the world that I see, the chaotic order (oxymoron intended) and the ‘natural’ art, and share it with others…. We are so busy in the world today and so stressed out that we tend to graze over the beautiful and mystical things in life. we look at the picture but miss all the fine details. I love sharing what I see when I slow down and appreciate the nature of the world we live in.

Friend or foe?

Have you ever had someone close to you who has screwed you over in so many ways that you don’t know if the friendship is even worth it? When it gets to the point that your other friends and family dislike them and think you should write them off completely, but you are torn because you are between thinking that elimination is what needs to be done and the bummed absence of said person?

This is a dilemma that I have encountered numerous times in my life. I tend to say that I am torn between heart and mind, between emotions and logical thinking. To this day I am fighting with the two seemingly supreme forces that govern how I handle day to day life.

I mean one thing you could argue, if you believe in fate, is that if you let these people go and they continue to fight for the relationship and they remain around, there is nothing that can stop it… but if I do that, I will be doing exactly what they are doing to me…

So is this a road I should keep going down or should I bid a farewell to a friendship?

I have a love/hate relationship with Social Networking

Don’t get me wrong, I feel like social networking is going to be “the way of the future” or how people communicate from now on rather than face to face conversation. I think it will benefit a lot of things, like staying in contact with people from your school or family, or people in the military. But this contact could be debated whether or not it is quality contact. Hell, now it is harder for me to get someone to answer a phone call than answer a text.. I am young but some of my friends may call me old school because I, for one, am an idividual who enjoys the company of others. I like sitting down with another person an having a focused personal conversation. I think the world is lacking that right now with all of the chatting, texting and messaging; when people sit down with other real people now, they don’t know how to interact. Texting is so impersonal, you don’t need to respond right away, you don’t even need to pay close attention to the conversation, you could be doing something completely off topic and send a simple “okay” that would suffice.

How this will work.

Most of my thoughts are fragmented, kind of broken up in to flashes of words, phrases, pictures or songs. I have a lot of questions and I am not necessarily looking for only answer but the thoughts and opinions of other people too. None of my posts will be too long and they might be a little scrambled, but hey, that is how my mind works.
