Silence


Two months from yesterday I'm graduating. Two months from yesterday I will be a full-blown adult. Two months from yesterday, everything will change - my living situation, my employment, the people around me, everything.

Oh, I cannot tell you the amount of people who have asked me how I feel about graduating at the end of this quarter or what I'm planning on doing at that time. I also cannot tell you how frustrated and annoyed I am at those questions. I want them to stop. I want them to stop so dearly.

I would be lying if I said I wasn't freaking out every time I wake up or go to sleep thinking about my future. It's not that I don't have confidence in my photography abilities, but it's more of that I don't know where I'll be or how long it will take until I'm employed.

I'm anxious and on edge at all moments - which is why it's a good thing I'm in a Yoga and Pilates class. I know that everything will end up okay, because it always does. However, I just need silence.

I know the people that are asking are friends and loved ones, but it's overwhelming me when all I need is support and silence.

This isn't a "hey friends, read this and get the hint" - it's just a way to help me breathe.

But other than my stress, below are some of my senior photos that a dear friend named Tatyana Didovets took of me.

Of course the time I decide to graduate is when it's cold and freezes a smile on my face when being photographed!
