This is from a concert I shot of local band — Koko. Above is the lead singer talking under dim lighting with some friends.
I try not to complain too much, optimism is my personal method of getting through difficult things. Stress is too easily attached to me like a monkey riding on my shoulders so I simplify. I clear. I clean. I empty things. I block out my vision to only what I need to see so everything I want to see stops distracting and fuddling my head.
I should be studying right now but I feel like I should write. I’ve just tested out this new website, Medium.com, by the founders of Twitter and it reminded me that we all have that ongoing narrative going on, whether or not we like it to. Mine is compelling me to let it out of its cage for a second and play with my keys.
I tend to showcase photos here that speak to my mindset at the moment, and I think this one is good. Spotlights make me feel safe sometimes because they only show you what you need to see. Everything else can fade out into the dim luminescence of whatever’s not around. I sometimes will wear just a white t-shirt and black jeans because it gives me one less thing to think about.
Well, I’ve given you a beginning, a middle, and an end. They all start with I. Now, I need to go.
Finals won’t be so bad.
