Graduating and Other Things

Hey everyone!

I haven’t made a post here in a very long time. However, considering that I will be graduating college in less than two months, I think it’s about time that I start updating regularly.

Graduating is a scary thing, considering that I live in the US in a failing job market where stability is not a guarantee for me for a fresh-out-of-school graduate. It’s even harder as a Art major and a Psychology minor unless I go to grad school (which I can’t afford yet) which is another double-whammy. However, I have considered substitute teaching so I’m going to try to get certified for that so that way I can make at least some money on the side while I try to build up my own business.

It has always been a dream of mine to do photography as a full-time career because I love meeting new people and documenting everything I see. Even when I wasn’t photographing, I was always taking pictures with my eyes, embedding the visuals in my memory. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else!

For my capstone, one of our assignments is to have a website and an artist’s statement so I finally got myself a new domain and a new layout as well!

You will find my new stuff that I have taken this year. I’m also trying to buy the domain for this blog as well so a lot of what I’m doing is a work in progress right now. However, I feel that the transitions from Point A to Point B are really smooth. Also, marketing is a big deal for me right now so I’ve just been distributing business cards to people in festivals I attend to when I’m in the city. Aside from that, that’s all I’m able to do right now until I get some money going.

Otherwise, I hope you’re all having a great day and stay tuned for more good things to come!
