Heart it Races

The song that defined summer to me..


The Other Side

Photos from The Selby.

Well, I've had my first week at school and it almost feels as if the past two years have never happened. I don't really like that feeling, or that I'm basically starting all over again; the new kid once again, but I'm happy to be surrounded by all this creativity and interesting people. Art school, hah, never thought I'd see the day..

It was a pretty big decision for me to leave Northeastern University in Boston, where I was studying journalism, to come to Ringling College in Florida, where I will be studying graphic design. I can't tell you exactly why I made the decision, only that I felt I needed a change of scenery, to see if there was somewhere out there where I'd be happier, and for once feel a sense of belonging. I'm glad I made that decision, even though it still scares me every day, but I hope that this is the change I needed, the source of inspiration I've been looking for, and the place I can for once call home.

It's weird going from rushing city streets, lights and noise to white beaches and lush forests of spanish moss..To be honest, the quiet kind of scares me, but I think I'm starting to accept this city and its people's more relaxed way of living. I guess I just need to let go, but it's hard when I don't really know where I'll land..

Amanda & Ledger

Soph & her pup




Friends' pups.

I'm hangin out in Boston at the moment and the weather is beautiful..I should be outside. Well, I did earlier, but I guess Dunkin Donut runs don't really count for much. I love visiting this city, summer here is so relaxing and the breeze is actually welcomed for feels weird not living here anymore though..but I'm excited for Florida and Ringling :)
