On the road to Crosby Stills and Nash with some of my boys


Polaroid outtake while shooting for Volcom.

Going to work my ass off this year… Need to save money and keep my grades up. I need to get out and travel and be free… Next summer I will be on the road.



Today’s mental health reminder: a relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days, (or whatever your step back may be) does not decrease your value. Take your time, do some self care, reflect on the progress that you have made. You are strong; one step back is nothing when you look at the journey you have already made.

Needed to hear that

Why do I like losing my mind


This woman is godly!! sacred feminine!!
No idea who the artist is but seeing this actually made me cry a little. People are so cruel… I’m guilty of it to but as I am getting older I am becoming a lot less judgmental of people’s appearances. Everyone wants to be loved and feel attractive and people become so isolated because they look different and its not fair. I know being overweight isn’t healthy but you literally have no idea what is going on with that person unless you ask… they could have health issues that cause weight gain, or could be depressed, have an eating disorder, whatever… Everyone has something, some sort of problems they are working through. Everyone just wants to be happy, I think. Keeping that in mind, I know a lot of people will make comments about people’s weights or appearances, and I try to remind them they don’t know what’s going on with that person. I don’t do this all the time every day and sometimes I have to consciously remind myself but hey at least I’m trying.


trying to make a point of practicing my writing/drawing/photography/whatever everyday. i’m becoming more and more aware of how shitty i treat myself and how much time i waste. i’ve actually been making it to work this summer (even if i’m usually a minute or two late…) but it’s progress for me. i’ve been sleeping at more normal times(ish) and drinking less frequently (this will change when school starts, i’m sure, but hopefully i have some self control). I still tend to drink too much at a time and kind of worry that could be a problem itself. I’ve also been smoking a lot less and doing yoga and hooping a lot more. I’ve generally always had good eating habits, surprisingly, but once i’m living on my own this fall i plan on eating cleaner. none of this has really been a conscious decision to change myself all at once, I just take in every moment as it comes and embrace what it could be. i’m mostly writing this as a reminder/log for myself to keep on keepin on and progress cause no one reads my self posts probably so sorry if you for some reason do and this makes no sense to you/I know I’m just rambling


shitty quick poem i will probably delete soon

you are the mountain

i am the sea

you weep avalanches

i am constantly wet

we may touch…

but only for a little while

you are alone

but i am invisible to those inside me
