well here i am in my humble abode, also known as a dormroom, gearing up for my LAST semester at Westmont. whew. what happened? it seems like just yesterday when i was driving up to campus with my parents all sorts of nervous and anxious about what would lie ahead. and now, i am coming to the realization that soon i will have to leave this place. to begin a new season. a new phase and to start LIFE. also known as get a job and support myself. ugh. so exciting yet terrifying all at the same time. i constantly get asked the question “so, what are your plans after westmont?” at first i liked the question. now, i am started to fear it as if i have to have a definite and developed answer. i know what i want to do, i am just not sure how is it all going to work out. i am trying to be patient and flexible. i want to have a sense of freedom. of possibility. of choice. i like my options. so what lies ahead? who knows. but that is what i am strangely excited about. something that is so weird for me. i usually like to plan, to have it all figured out, to know exactly what is coming. but not now. weird!
when know i will tell you. believe me. so until then…i am on stand by mode. but know this: photography, social justice, leadership, communication, travel, and graphic design will all be part of my life in some way or another. i look forward to seeing how that all works out.
so 2008 and last semester of Westmont here i come! i am so excited for the adventures, moments, experiences, people and photographs therein. yes please!
