Nuvali hits 💕👫
Digital Arts I did for our Nuvali Exhibit entitled Know One’s Art; Nudity of Mind under our MMA156 Video Editing/Portfolio Subject. I did some of this the day before our exhibit lol what is cramming. Also, we were not allowed to stick to just one kind of art (example, pure paintings) so I opted to present digi arts, traditional (painting and sketch) and photography. The exhibit all in all wasn’t a flop, though the tents were too crowded for our art pieces. Anyway, this was totally one of the best memories last year :—)
Wonder what laughter, pain, adventure, tears, and hardships 2014 will bring me. It was one hell of a ride, 2013. Got no words for you.
Ye. You’re welcome.
Sepanx with summer.

You have the most contagious smile ever ♡
It actually pisses me off so much that there’s the whole WORLD out there, yet I’m just going to school every day and learning things that I am - for the most part - completely apathetic towards and I have so little motivation, yet I could be off finding wonderful things in foreign cities or climbing mountains or helping people or just wandering, and I feel like I’d learn so much more doing that instead, really.
"Hey man, take my picture!"
"I can’t do it. It’s too dark."
"Yeah, we need some light. Let’s go over there."
"Are you homeless?"
"Yes, I am."
"How long have you been homeless?"
"15 years. I’ve been in Boston 8 months. Before that I was in Washington, Virginia, New York, Philadelphia, Louisiana, Florida…"
"Why didn’t you stay in Florida? It’s so much warmer."
"I wanted to see my family. But they don’t want to see me. They don’t understand depression. They treat me like dirt. Homeless people treat me better than my family."
"And what happened 15 years ago? How did you end up on the streets?"
"I tried to burn myself twice. I had 30 surgeries. I was dead two times, but God brought me back. I don’t know why."
"And why did you do it?"
"I was depressed. Why you crying?"
"Because you are a beautiful person, and my family is really messed up, and I’ve been very depressed. I think I can understand you."
"Yes, I am a good person. And when you take people’s pictures, don’t disrespect them."
"No, man, I won’t. I like people. That’s why I take their pictures."
"And when you make your portfolio, don’t denigrate people. Let the pictures speak for themselves."
"I will. Are you safe on the streets?"
"Yes, I am…And now I have $8 to buy me some food."
"That’s all I have. Next time I see you, I will give you more."
"No, man. It ain’t all about money. Give me a hug. And next time you see me, give me a hug again. And thanks for taking my picture."
