"Never look back unless you are planning to go that way."
-Henry David Thoreau
The thing I interviewed for.
I got in. And I'm in it with two of my good friends.
I waited to hear back just to make this damn journal. So here I am. heygurlhey.
In the program, late-twenty peeps (grads of elite and ivy schools/education & social inequality scholars)
take undeserved yet potential students,
and mentor/support/share tips and tricks into getting into elite, yet need-blind universities in the US.
Super grateful and excited about this and realize this is my one way ticket out of state for a career/life.
My grades were pretty awesome this semester, but I need to try a little more on history (fuck that).
Still, Mandi gets many treats and rewards for not cutting a bitch under all this stress.
This winter break, all I have to do is an on-going shoot for a design element, and a UIL guitar piece.
It makes me really happy that all I have to do is art. It's like really fun hard work.
And I don't suck total shit at photog anymore....!
My birthday's tomorrow, the 23rd. Because we don't give fucks about traditions, I picked out sweet new combats, a new messenger bag, and my cake yesterday. Fuck yes.
The shoes had to be wrapped and I couldn't wear 'em out, though.
Have you checked out the motion study shoot? It's one of my faves so far.
It consists of multiple shutter speeds, and bro drumming along to Buddy Rich on the shit-kit.
Future uploads will have more fabulous fisheye rather than the crappy kit lens, so that's good.
My 3 year dAnniversary is in three months!
I've taken the name Madam Steamfunk on all the things.
I personally like it.
I hope you do too. I'm waiting around for Premium to finish it off here.
My studio/home will always be Punky Heart Studios.
So sorry if the constant name change is bugging.
Just waiting for something to stick.
But it's fine your fine I'm fine we're fine aight.
I've also been thinking how the hell I can continue the SPACE LIFE and WIGGLE/GLITCH series.
Without failing and feeling redundant and unworthy.
Need ideas. Hmmmm.
DAMN WE'VE HAD A LONG ASS WINTER HERE.
LIKE HOLY SHIT, WHY CAN'T WE HAVE SNOW THO.
-mndi (just mandi now? hell no!) ♥
BE MY FRIEND, DAMNITT.
