ACT UP

I had a chance to go to the Newseum in D.C.  this week and it was amazing.  One image stands out and always will. . .a small part of the Berlin Wall.

 

“ACT UP”. . .if you say so, I will.

Housewife?

I have been stuck in the hotel bed all day…I finally gave up and made the decision to go downstairs to find food (hotel food looks delicioso but tastes. . .not so much).
Well, I rolled out of bed and my sister says with surprise,”Look at you with your diamond star necklace and diamond earrings…you DO want to be a housewife!”
No, big sister…I want to be a well-educated TROPHY housewife. . .who knows how to cook a mean tortilla at the end of the day while talking about the media’s impact on politics with the hubby.

Reverb 10 (25) – A Few Thousand Words

Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you.

I have waited to post this Reverb because it has been the hardest one so far.  I cannot just pick one photograph that epitomizes who I am or strive to be. . .it’s so hard. . .and I’m usually the one behind the lens.  I’m not a simple person so what I engulf myself in definitely isn’t simple either.  I only have a few facets of myself, but they are all so distinct. . .that “one” photograph only speaks a hundred words of me. . .but the following speaking thousands of me.

Shot with the selftimer. . .these people have made me challenge myself to dive into shenanigans after a hard day of work.

Shot by me. . .yet, I'm still in it. . .as much as I hate to give my life to journalism. . .it is me.

Bailando. . .only time I don't worry. . .even though it always takes a few to get me there.

Reverb 10 (28) – Success WILL be mine

What’s the thing you most want to achieve next year? How do you imagine you’ll feel when you get it? Free? Happy? Complete? Blissful? Write that feeling down. Then, brainstorm 10 things you can do, or 10 new thoughts you can think, in order to experience that feeling today.

There are two things I want to achieve in 2011

  1. April 30 – Graduation
  2. Hopefully some time before then – Acceptance letter to the University of Miami . . . with them wanting to pay me to be educated by them

Once I earn those two things you better believe I’ll feel free. . .blissful. . .complete. . .happy. . .It will be my self-actualization, well, at least for being 21.  I’ve dedicated sleepless nights. . .my health because of poor eating habits because I was always stuck in the Southern Office and by ignoring the headaches I get to complete assignment. . .I’ve given up weekends of rest to gain two steps on competition. . .and sacrificed relationships (but, the ones with the people who do love me the most are still here). . .all for wanting to go into journalism. . .when those two things become reality. . .then all I’ll be able to do is cry. . .’cause that’s what I do.
