maytime, warm air, nerves & other doings

Friday, May 2, 2014

Today I woke up and I just felt different. Maybe it's because summer has come early, and the air that wrapped around me when I left for work was the same temperature as my skin. I know spring hasn’t left us entirely, but these past few days we’ve jumped ahead in time to warm hot days: days that make the crown of your head hot and nights when you have to leave the window open and twist around in bed, finding the cool parts of the sheets.

Maybe I feel different because it’s May. You guys, it’s May! It’s been almost a year since I graduated, and for some reason, today that didn’t make me feel scared. It made me a twinge nervous, in the stomach. But a good kind of nerves. The nerves that say, I’m excited. The nerves that say, Lets get down to business, I’m making this happen.

May is going to be a big month for me. Because I decided so. I decided I’m going to start doing more and thinking less. (Thinking is great. I love thinking. I just, think, that I think too much. An incapacitating amount. The kind of thinking that prevents me from doing.)

This blog has been (somewhat) neglected, and that is because it’s a little bit of a confused space right now. Half personal. Half photographs. Half book reviews and the financial dilemmas of an inept 20-something. (And yes, I realize that was too many halves to make a whole. Which is probably part of the problem.) But I still love it here and when I think the hardest about what I want to do, it’s to work in this space, here, on the internet. So here I am and here I will be.

(The images in this post are 35mm scans from the past few months! Feels good to get them out into the world.)

(Have a good weekend everyone!)


  1. I don't see this blog as a confused space, I see it as you. And that's all it needs to be limited by.

  2. wow I have been reading your blog now last week. I started at your first blogpost in 2009 to see how it would develop into now. You seem very observant of things and good with words. I also like that you post things that most people do not post, such as the feelings about student loans. Keep up the great work and I will be reading your new posts of course :D

    1. Oh my goodness what an undertaking! That's for all your compliments :)

  3. It's so good to feel excited about your future! Wishing your big month to go exactly as you'd like, maybe even better!
