Artist’s Notes: How Instant Film Has Affected Me

I have been messing with my “gifted” Polaroid One600 camera for the past month now, and it has done so much for me. So, in honor of the impact instant film has had on my life, I will ramble about my thoughts on instant film.

At first when I picked it up, it was solely because I had caught inspiration to do so from Life Is Strange (video game); however, now, I love it because I love the medium. 🙂 Anyway, I had no idea what to expect from this camera of mine and I had no idea how much shooting with it would change me.

It’s gotten to the point where I’m starting to fall in love all over again with analog photography. I mean, I’ll always have digital, but there’s something magical about analog that digital will never reproduce. Perhaps, it is because analog is more intimate, more romantic (at least in my eyes.)

Fantasies, Feels, And Friends…

Hey Wonderful Listeners…

Can I be honest with you all for a second? I mean, really honest. I’ve run into so many people who I’ve begun to like in ways of infatuation, and it’s kind of killing me on the inside. I mean, it makes me not even want to love sometimes…

Ah. OK. Let me back up. First, I should start by saying that I’ve noticed that I caught feelings for some of my closest friends (who, as far as I know, don’t feel that way about me.) I don’t know where these feelings erupted from but I don’t have the patience for them anymore.

Thoughts From Spring Break (2017)

Hey Wonderful Listeners!

Oh, I tell you, this Spring Break was quite a relaxing one, although many exciting things didn’t come to pass. But I cannot complain for all the things that have happened, for the most part, have been really wonderful. If you’ll let me, I’d like to recount some of the happenings which have passed over the course of this week.

My Spring Break started basically on Friday, March 10th. I didn’t have any obligations to anything so I mostly spent time just relaxing if you will. I’ve spent a lot of my time just doing things with my friends and avoiding the little homework I do actually have. (Y’know, because I’m lazy.)

Thoughts From The 23rd of February (2017)

Hi Wonderful Listeners!

Today was both a wonderful day and a terrible day. How so? Well, overall, it was a great day except for two unexpected occurrences. They did throw me for a loop but I powered through them. However, let me just dive into my day and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

So I started out by getting up at a decent hour. I woke up with enough time to put myself together in a decent way. I had the pleasure of catching the bus with Armand (who’s still crashing on our couch every other night or so.) We caught the bus and we were on our way to campus.

After reaching campus, we went our seperate ways. I decided to stop by Dos Gatos Kolaches since I was feeling hungry for breakfast. The lovely people who were there had me in and out in like two minutes. They’re so great. I love their service and kolaches! 🙂 Funny enough, walking from Dos Gatos to my first class in Sabinal, I ran into Armand again. Apparently, he was feeling hungry too (which is a shame because we could’ve had breakfast together.)

Now, I Just Wait…

Hey Wonderful Listeners.

Well, I’m back again… Can you guess what I have to talk about? Any takers..?

It’s Chris. (I know. Surprise…) But I have some new developments about him. And I’ll try to keep it really simple (and maybe short.)

I finally let Chris know today that I’m interested in getting to know him. No, I didn’t say I was interested in dating him or anything, only simply getting to know him better. And I did so via a note.
