Also, a little thing I like to do to acknowledge and show my appreciation for my followers, is that whenever I get a new follower I post a song that either the name of or the the band/artist's name has something to do with their URL/username. You can check previous songs from the link below, and if I happened to miss you or you never got one since I picked this back up after some of you followed me, just let me know.
I don't claim credit for any photos I post unless stated otherwise
Regram: After working brunch for so long I finally get to enjoy one. And it so happens to be a mustache party birthday brunch. (at The 5 and Diamond Restaurant)
Oh did I mention, I’m seeing Sam Smith in concert again in September. I woke up early to get these tix cuz they sold out in minutes.
Last year I posted a small series of images that illustrated my experience with depression and anxiety. It resonated with quite a few people, so I felt that it was something I should continue to build upon. I worked on it all semester as part of a portfolio class, and while it was a ton of work, I’m glad I was able to do it.
Mental health disorders are such a taboo topic. If you ever bring it up in conversation, people awkwardly get silent, or try to tell you why it’s not a real problem. When I was in the worst parts of depression, the most helpful thing anyone could have done was to just listen to me - not judging, not trying to find a solution, just listen. I’m hoping that these images will help open up conversation about mental health issues. Everyone is or will be affected by them one way or another, and ignoring them doesn’t make things better.
