Yesterday afternoon I watched the movie “The Science of Sleep” (which is such a great movie I might add), and was inspired by so many things in the movie. Immediately after watching it I got this image stuck in my head, and despite having other ideas for my self-portrait this week, this image just would not go away. It was the most vivid idea for a picture I have ever had, and the most persistent. And it turned out almost exactly how it was in my head.
And, I left the clouds hanging above my bed, it is wonderful.
I have decided, as of tonight, that I am going to start back up my prayer journal. I used to be so good about writing in it every night, but then I got busy I guess, and just forgot to write in it. I have been stressing out a lot lately, and I realized tonight that I need to give up those worries to God. He controls everything, and he will provide for me, so I shouldn’t be stressing and worrying. Now I know that starting back up regular, formal prayer is not going to magically take away my worry, but it is a step, which is what I need to do. I need to begin to trust God in every aspect of my life, and in order to do that I need to start voicing my worries to him.
**Still catching up…
Friday, August 6. As I mentioned before, on Friday I drove from Lexington to Minnesota. I got home around 10:00pm, and had been in the car since 10:00am, and so I didn’t have much time for pictures. Right before I went to bed I took this, in my bedroom here in MN.

This was a weekend full of firsts for me: first product shoot, first time in Bowling Green, KY, first engagement shoot, first time staying in a hotel alone, and first time sleeping in a king sized bed. It was crazy.
On Friday I shot some silk scarves and a shirt that are made by a woman here in KY. I wont be able to post the pictures from the product shoot because they were on Andrew Kung’s (the photographer I have done the Churchill shoots with, and am interning with this fall) camera. However, it was such a great learning experience, and I was pretty happy with the pictures I took (we will see how she liked them soon).
On Saturday I drove to Bowling Green with Drew, and shot my first engagement shoot with him. I will be posting those pictures soon. Drew got me a hotel room there, and I had a king sized bed all to my self. It was both awesome and crazy. I still slept curled up in a tiny little ball despite all the room in the bed, I was entertained by it, and felt kind of silly. When I was getting ready for bed I noticed how wonderful my white computer looked on the white sheets with the yellow cast from the only light on, and so I took this picture.
I have some more extremely big news tomorrow, but I want to post the picture with the news, and I need to get a few things worked out before then.
Terribly lame picture I know. Everything is due Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for me, and so my head is spinning. Not to mention getting my drivers license renewed in time and so many non school related things that I need to get done this week. I had been working all day, and then fell asleep accidentally, and when I woke up I realized I didn’t have a picture. I wasn’t going to take one, but was making my bed and decided the wrinkles could look alright.
