Phone Photos

I feel like i’m doing a really poor job at being patient. This fall is going to be so exciting. I’m starting the BFA, moving into a house, and most my friends are back from their missions and will be in Provo again.

It’s the last two weeks of warm freedom i’ll have until next April. photos//– have been laughing at the weird face i’m making in the first picture for about a week now. i just don’t understand why it’s so funny to me. so enjoy that..-all you can eat sushi with of my favorite people/photographers Monika. we sat and ate and talked and ate and talked for 2 hours.

happiness dissected.

Some images that make me happy: sketching letterforms and experimenting with type, window light/heat,  my best friends excitement about wedding plans, and a game of no-rules ice hockey finished off with dynamite… all these images are on my instagram, @smilemepretty I’m taking “the Anatomy of Peace in Relationships” and “Positive Living”.  which kinda makes it seem like i’m currently buried in conflict and grief and trying to pull myself out of it.  If you read my blog, you probably think that i’m a pretty happy person. you’re right. i am. And yet for some reason i’m taking classes to try understand how, or what that truly means. For one of my classes I interviewed a few people about happiness.
