other people again


omg my life just taking more pictures of people. Ok this kid THIS KID I'm retaking his photo again because the first photo was good but he thought he looked too sad and then the second the shadows on his face were annoying me. So yeah. His neutral face is zombiesh but his fake smile is really fake. The only way to get an ok photo is to make him laugh. So I just stared at him above my camera until he started laughing and then quickly refocused and took the picture before he noticed. He asked me why I kept looking at him but I couldn't tell him it was to make him laugh because then he would force it. Even though the shadows are annoying the pictures still make me happy because I captured a moment in time when someone was happy just because of me which is special.


I have a thing for trios
"How do you cope with stress?"
"Music. Music is a great way to express feelings. When I'm angry or frustrated, I'll bang out a loud and fast tune on my poor piano. When I calm down and think, the tune gets slower and quieter."
my friend I love this picture of her she's so cute ah

Spring + Humans

I've been so swamped with school that I just completely did not have the energy to do this blog. I also felt...idk.... useless.
So I guess I'll tell you what I've been up to :)
I've been addicted to tumblr and it's not good lol :P
I also have been gotten into photography. I started a "humans of" page for my high school. We reached 1,000 likes on Facebook a couple weeks ago! We take pictures of people around my high school and post them with captions and stuff and it's so great! I've met these people I've never would have talked to and I feel like we're helping create a closer community. Also a couple days ago a girl from all the way across the country who doesn't know anybody from my school asked us for advice on starting her own page for the high school and I  was like asgdfjkldsahfk and I made a bunch of new amazing friends with the people who take photos and run the page with me <3 they're so great. Here are my favorite photos that I have taken over the past month :)

"We met in math class, and the first thing she said to me was, 'by the way,I suck at math.'"


"Why are you eating lunch outside?"
"Why is everyone else eating inside?"
THIS ONE ALSO HE IS SO NICE AND ALWAYS SAYS HI TO ME IN THE HALLWAY NOW
"It's easier to judge people by their outward appearance instead of by their true character. Accepting people for who they are is something that I struggled with, and frankly, is something that we all struggle with... 
My mom came out as a lesbian when I was in 8th grade. I mean, it was pretty hard when she moved out, but it taught me a lot. Plus, I think a change in perspective is always good."

"We both had hair down to our shoulders in middle school. Since then the hair has left our lives, but we decided to stick around."
them in middle school aw



This trio I always see them together around school and they are a very entertaining trio. Best bromance.

"We all had 8th grade Spanish together. It was a hoot."
---IN OTHER NEWS---

They officially put up the fence around the nicest outside area of my school and I can no longer climb my favorite tree :( So here are my photos from the day the fence went up. It was a rainy day and it was horribly depressing.
The last day up in the tree:


-----after----




It's getting nicer outside and the light is so pretty now
yes that poster says asian night... and yes it's one of the most popular events at my school.

Stay Rad





 My friend at camp had a pink tank top that said "thank you for being so RAD" and also I needed some sweater sooo when I saw this sweater for 60% off at Urban Outfitters I knew I had to get it. I just got my shoes from Dr Martens and I'm so in love with them fhushfibewghwf they are like the ones that Mia wears in Princess Diaries (before her makeover obviously). And leggings from lululemon that I got for Christmas and they are made out of really nice fabric and they are so comfy sfjdbibhdwdbs.

Graveyard

I had chamber rehearsal with my two friends and then we had lunch and walked around this graveyard. Yeah. I usually don't like graveyards but this one is really old and historical and there are lots of people  from American history buried here.
