So much going on, so many different perspectives, ideas on top of ideas, conflicting thoughts.. all trapped.....I am not the best communicator, I often have a hard time saying exactly what I am thinking. Not because I’m too scared to, but because I have a hard time expressing what I mean and feel through words outside of my head. I have grown such a love and passion for art, whether Its through fashion, drawing, photography, etc, it’s art, I’m creating, I’m expressing, I’m communicating. Understand it or not.
What makes infinity so alluring? Is it the fact it has no end, unlike everything else in the world, which is finite? Maybe it’s because infinity defies mortality, which is what makes us vulnerable. Infinity represents the invincible in a finite world. The forever in a story that finishes. Standing in Kusama’s mirror box of magic dots, I’m reminded of how little and insignificant we are. Reflections multiply over and over, and over again, shrinking us in their wake.
Over the last week I've gotten to work with one of the prettiest subjects ever.. The Hypercube.
Check out this video I made of it and if anything strikes your eye, definitely go give the Kickstarter a peep too. Going on now, less than two weeks left. The project's just over 75% done and it's a ridiculously cool cube, so please, have at it if you want it.
Link in bio, or, hyperspacelight.com, or, search Hypercube on Kickstarter, or not.
Making like Usher. So these are my confessions. :•:
Confession Number 1: I’m actually looking forward to not having too many things planned in the next couple of weeks. Of course things change but I might be starting to reach my limits on Team No Sleep/ Team Gala Pa More lol. But then again, I just went ham on Activities on LivingSocial so we will see how long this lasts. 😂😂 :•:
Confession Number 2: Over the last few months, I’ve been slowly but surely learning how to edit my photos in Lightroom. It’s been fun learning new techniques from online tutorials and some of my favorite influencers/content creators and ultimately finding a new creative outlet.
However, in the past month or so, editing and posting has just felt like a chore. That combined with my busy work schedule led to a much needed semi Instagram cleanse. Of course I still went on adventures and didn’t sleep as much as I should have but it felt good to not necessarily worry about what to post next. And yes, admittedly, I got a little too caught up in it all that and I would stress about posting.
With that being said, a couple days ago I got back on my desktop and started messing around with Lightroom again. And you know what? It didn’t feel like work and I remembered how fun it was to be creative with editing all over again. Sharing my photos with Scott and making it a fun collaborative effort. So I guess this is my long winded way of saying it’s all fun to joke about “Doing it for the gram” (and trust me I will continue to make that joke lol) but it’s important to remember to do it because it makes you happy. Social Media is about connecting with people and not trying to get a post in because you feel like you need to. It’s so easy to get caught up in it all. Social Media, primarily Instagram for me, is not a chore and shouldn’t ever feel like one. On that note, I’m excited to continue to share adventures (like this one) and live vicariously (learn and connect) through others 😉😂

For a split second, I long for eternity.
Some of you might know, I am in an extremely stressful stage rn as I have to undergo an emergency surgery that will impact my vision for the rest of my life.
Hoping for the best and praying that I can continue to see many more beautiful artworks and people in my life.
