Old Train Station

It's the weekend and there isn't much to do at our college... So, Whit and I decided to go on a photo expedition to a local, rundown, train station. The station is in the midst of being restored and since it is old enough to be a landmark, the architecture is pretty interesting. It made for some cool photos and some fun time!

Phillip Phillips Concert

By the title of this post, I'm sure you can guess what I'm writing to you about...

Last night, Whit and I got to enjoy an amazing performance by Phillip Phillips. I was a little apprehensive about attending this concert at first due to my complete lack of knowledge when it came to his music. I had heard the songs that had been on the radio, which I would say had been overplayed, but I was pleasantly surprised by his vocal tone and broad range of genre. He played a lot of edgier songs and some that I would compare to jazz/blues. It really complemented his voice and it caught me off guard. I have been listening to his songs on Spotify all day and I can definitely say that I am a fan (and that I have a bit of a crush)!

Small Moments

Another week of school has past and yesterday marked a month since I moved to school. I have to say that I have settled in nicely but I am definitely feeling the stress of classes and schedules. I feel like I have been running around with my head cut off and that I have been pushed to try to figure out what "I want to do when I grow up." Between doing my school work, photo assignments and looking for job shadows, I haven't had a time to really breath. I contemplated skipping class today to rest but in the end I decided to go and I was glad that I did.

This evening, while I was waiting for my photo event to start, I took some time to enjoy the small things. I came across a rose garden that I have walked past for the past three weeks without noticing. I decided since I had my camera with me  that I should capture a couple shots. Moments like this, where there are no pressures and you forget the stress, are everything. I find peace in the small moments...






I'm hoping to rest a little bit this weekend and try to center myself again. I find that I put so much pressure on myself to have everything together when I need to remember we are all "messy" people. We all have problems, stresses, and imperfections. I need to not freak myself out over the unnecessary and rather try to feel the peace of the small moments all the time. Anyway, thats enough of my rambling!
