When u take 68 photos but end up picking the first one u took anyway????? Hahaha, but real talk, I have a newfound respect for people (like @emtaunk) who fucking put shit out like this consistently. Also, photographers. What the fuck is lighting? How do you come up with these ideas? Like damn dude, goals. My favorite part of this whole experience has been learning about myself. I’ve never identified myself as a creative type; but I’m learning that I have a whole new side. A side I like a lot. I only realized that I truly was creative when I met Garvin (@chinniart from my talk 2 strangers highlights) and he said “creative types like us need to disconnect from everything every now and then” and I thought to myself, damn, the first impression I put out there was that I’m creative. Maybe I am. Maybe it’s okay to redefine who you are every now and then. It is really cool beans to know I’ve been alive for 23 years but there’s still shit I don’t know about myself, humbling in fact.
Also, I just wanted to say a little something about @emtaunk, because what am I if not someone who calls out great fucking people as she sees them? Here’s our story in hopes that it teaches you something. We lived together when I was in my first year at UBC and she was in her second. We were best friends. We had a falling out. I don’t remember who’s fault it was - and that truly does not matter. The other day, I was thinking about her and thought: damn I miss her. And then I thought, wait, if I miss her, what am I doing? I reached out, and God, @emtaunk being the beautiful kind woman she is - well, here we are. Stuntin’ on the gram for your aesthetic pleasure lololol. If I let my pride get in the way that day, I would have been missing out on a girl who is thoughtful, kind, beautiful, funny and God does the list ever go on. They don’t make them like you anymore woman. Thanks for being you.
What I’m trying to say is - swallow your pride. Pride is fucking stupid. If reaching out means you can get your supportive, beautiful, kind, loving, best friend back - then what the fuck are you waiting for? No. Seriously. I’m done this post. What the fuck are you waiting for?
