Jewel. Ay!

Sorry I'm late on updating this month. hehe...
Not much to say.. so I guess I'll just post some pictures. :D







Stacey, Taylor and I had an awesome photoshoot a while back. This was my favorite edit. :D



I've been missing the Madness tons lately. Here's to amazing friends! (I feel like I should say something about Jill here. She is hilarious, awesome, gorgeous, and she came to me exactly when I needed her! Go Jill! Sorry I don't have any pictures of you yet..)



The Tree and rock



Tree, Rock, Water, and Sky. I still don't think I'm finished.
Probably my favorite part. The reflection.

I Guess I could talk about why I did a tree on a rock in the middle of nowhere..


Why a tree? I've always liked trees. I like most plants, but flowers are overrated and I feel like trees aren't as appreciated as they could be. I mean, think about all they do for us! They give us shade, let us climb all over them, and we can string up hammocks or tire swings! Who doesn't love a good tire swing? I did read a story about an evil tree a while back, and I know sometimes they cause hardships when they fall through ceilings and whatnot.. but I think the majority of the time they are our protectors, helpers, and friends. :D


Why a rock? I've always loved the idea of being able to do something that everyone thinks is impossible. I think that sometimes people can be ignorant of all the incredible things we're capapble of doing just because it seems like it wouldn't work. I guess that's why I wanted the tree to grow on a rock instead of normal land or something. Also, I've always loved the doctrine of having a "sure foundation" so it seemed appropriate.


Why the middle of the ocean? This one is a little harder for me to explain. I can be pretty antisocial at times.. so I think that had a little to do with it. Also, I liked that this tree didn't need help from anyone to grow except the water, sun, and rock. Again, it's kind of the "against all odds" theme again.. Yep. That's all.


Tell me what you think I can improve! There's still something missing, I think.

Goals:

  • Second job.. (sigh..)
  • Eat healthy
  • $1 a day!!

Love the photo with the construction equipment.

Also, in your quote, I think it's supposed to be "good" people, rather than "food" people. FYI.

Celeste! You're an amazing artist. Love it. However, as I am completely lacking in the artistic/creativity department, I don't feel qualified to give any advice on what to add. BUT, I am an awesome critic! And I say it looks GOOD. :)

I was wondering why your g was bolded. Woot for institute!! Good quote :)
