Current State of Crazy

So, I've been doing this crazy thing lately where having a huge amount of work just makes me want to put things off and write on this blog. So, here I am, typing away when I have a gajillion and one thoughts running through my mind. It's like my creative juices don't flow unless I have so much going on that I actually walk out of the house in the morning without shoes on my feet. Yes, this really happened to me last week.

Also, my room has been super clean lately because I've decided it's a vital stepping stone to feeling like a "grown-up". Well, other than now having an unobstructed traffic flow from my dresser to my bed, my world is pretty much falling apart! I keep feeling like I've misplaced things (but they're just where they should be) and have an overall feeling of paranoia about the superior level of cleanliness being exhibited in my living space.

Lately, I have also been wanting to diversify (ooh big word, fancy) my blog content by branching out into cooking posts. I've been photographing my food as I make it as of late to possibly post it on here, but my food just isn't that photogenic and nothing looks deserving of its fifteen minutes of fame yet. I have done cooking posts before though here and here. Maybe I need to make more extravagant food choices before I can whip out the camera and start snapping away?

Hmm what else? I have a photo shoot today between classes with Diana Yokes. I have to say I am pretty excited because I really like her work. She does a lot of fashion photography for magazines and is known for completely transforming her subjects and creating dreamlike images. I feel like I should be nervous, but I'm just too exhausted for nerves today. Oh and did I mention she will be airbrushing my makeup which has the designer bags under my eyes oh so excited.

To end this unorganized scatter brain of a post, I do appreciate all y'all that have been commenting on my posts lately. Really it's great. But, for the love of God, please don't be rude. Or be rude. I'll just delete anything that is blatantly offensive or a weakly crafted humor-coated insult. Honestly, I don't get why people hate. I mean, I write a BLOG for crying out loud. I don't claim to be sitting behind my computer screen with the cure to cancer (I wish) for you to be sitting behind yours passing judgment. Cool? Cool.

Aight, I'm off to lecture #3 of the day.

Wellll as much as I agree that it's just poor taste to be rude online, you are the one that's putting yourself out there in a blog and if your comment section is open, criticism should be expected. Not only is it not that big of a deal, if you took a the step to have a blog you should have skin thick enough to read and ignore rude comments. People hate, so what. You can't please everyone, but you also can't pretend those people don't exist. For you to passive aggressively ask people to keep their opinions to themselves is rude in itself. This is a social platform, not a dear diary.

@Anonymous Thank you for sharing this with me. I realize you're right. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I should be open to hearing it. No such request will be made in the future. What other wisdom do you possess, my friend? :)
