I've been thinking lately about life and my Instagram. Some take it more seriously than others and before, I was really guilty of that. Sometimes being carbon copies of content we think is going to do well, going to the same places, applying different minimal tweaks to photos to make them look different. It's made me feel like I've gotten away from doing the things I love and what I like. Once you get a certain amount of followers, you end up buying into that for however long and I feel like it's taken me away from moments and how I used to experience them.
I once had aspirations of writing films, so much so that in college I was set on applying to a particular film intensive. I wrote 92 pages and my hard drive failed. Unrecoverable. After, I stopped. Art, photos, writing seriously. Then life happened, then Instagram. I feel like it's hard to find your voice in this platform, so maybe starting to share scribbles I've typed or stories I've imagined will jumpstart me into that part of me that's been dormant for so long.
