understanding is a two-way street.

Did you know.

"there is more to sex appeal than just measurements. i don't need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. i can convey just as much sex appeal picking apples off a tree, or standing in the rain."

You can do it, yes you can.

Yes, yes it is.
Therefore there is no point on dwelling in the past.
Sometimes things happen in life under circumstances where your unsure what they were and why they happened. But you know...you can't go back and change what's happened. Nothing can be undone in life. So you must just move forward, and look past the little things that are upsetting, and look for the things in life that give you a optimistic attitude.

Just get over the things that pull you down.
Just let them go.
Because it's a new day.

& there is no point dwelling on the past.

Coast Trip!

So the other day I ventured to the coast with a friend! Which ended in some good exploring of tide pools, and beachcombing, and picture taking. I took my film camera with me, but occasionally got to use his amazing digital camera. Ugh I want one now so bad. Their seriously awesome. I still like film but digital is much easier.

So here are a few pictures I took, I put my own little editing twist. :)

An awesome adventure!

So not this last weekend, but the weekend before I went to Bend, OR. I actually had plans to go to Portland and then to Seattle for that weekend, but a friend had car troubles and needed to stay a bit more local and save money. So we traveled to Bend stayed with a friend and went on a huge adventure. It was so so so much fun. :)

We ended up hiking near Broken Top in bend and we hiked up pretty far! We crossed the river down lower when it was easier to cross, and oh my gosh the water was so freaking cold! It was crazzzy, and then I found the cutest froggy! hehe. So after we crossed we hiked on an older trail that disappeared at times, but we just followed the river up, and up, annnnnd upppp... haha.

We actually got pretty close to broken top and if we would've brought camping/backpacking gear I totally would've spent the night up there. It was gorgeous. We ran into some guys up there who had these craaazzzy loud, huge dogs. And one of them in particular wanted to eat me for sure. He was so big. He kept barking at us. So scary, then we talked to the guy for a bit and he gave us mosquito repellent and that was quite nice considering we were getting eaten alive! So we finally made our way back down ran into another group, one guy in particular was eyeballing one of my guy friends..haha. so funny. and then we finally crossed back over the river and hiked our way back to the parking lot. :)

Ending with some group picture taking anddd my own little photography stuff. I'll post when I get the CD back! Considering I use a 35mm. :) It's love. Anyways. All and all a pretty awesome trip with friends.

Oregon's Perfect Model

I'm in a competition for Oregon's Perfect Model, in a way it's sort of like America's Next Top Model. Every wednesday of this month I've met with everyone involved in the show. All the models have been so sweet, which is something I couldn't believe at all....considering most girls are very heartless. I've even made some friends! I'm so very grateful for this opportunity to shoot with such talented people. Photographers, MUA's, Hairstylists, Clothing Designers, The Crew on set and the other Models! It's been such a fantastic experience. I've made it to the Top 5! Can you believe that! I'm so happy! I really can't believe I've made it this far, but I'm pumped for this wednesday! It's our last shoot and final filming. Hopefully I knock everyone's socks off! Wish me luck!

Here are some pictures from the different shoots I've done.
