Hey there! I'm Amy and i'm 16.I've been on gaia for 4 years now and i still enjoy it. I usually lurk around zOMG and surf the marketplace a lot so you'll probably see me a lot selling items or on the game.Feel free to add me, i don't mind! Send me a message or anything, i enjoy chatting so don't be afraid! XD
I like gardening and flowers especially Lillies~! I also like Art but i'm not very good at it. I may even post some of my work if i have the time!
I do many things, but yes photography seems to be my niche so to speak. We go on what we like to call "adventures" searching for historical markers and especially old cemeteries! I have plans for some coffee table books! I don't feature these particular pieces of photography anywhere because I want to keep them private until I get these books started, but I do also do landscape and many macro shots of interesting flora and fauna. Here is my FB photography page and here is my DA. Photography helps relax me and I really enjoy our "adventures". I LOVE discovering new places and learning and "feeling" the history. biggrin Never you mind others as long as you are not doing anything immoral, ...and even things that aren't immoral, but might cause you to "rush" into growing up. Once innocence and childhood are gone it can be pretty difficult to "recapture" them. Enjoy the ride to the destination! Take time to notice and experience the things all around you. There are so many things we take for granted far too often. Which is why I enjoy my photography... it's not necessarily extraordinary, just another way to look at the world. I think you're gonna be fine!
Well, I think it's pretty cool. As long as you aren't too obsessed, but even that is okay... I mean learning about other cultures makes you more diverse. I never have understood why people often seem to react negatively when someone wants to stand out...be an individual. It isn't easy in this world today. People make you feel like you must fit in. I totally disagree with that line of thinking. I don't want to be like everyone else. I want to be unique! Sadly, I know that makes me subject to much ridicule, but who are we trying to please? The critics? Gos first...and then ourselves I think... so be you! No one else can be... and don't conform to their ways of thinking! You very well may look back one day and say "what was I thinking?" I mean when I went through what we'll lovingly refer to as my "Asian phase" as I have no real way to describe it and hope to not offend anyone... I looked so so stupid! In some ways I do wish someone had said something...maybe they did and I just chose to not hear them, but I looked pretty funny... it wasn't nearly as "cute" looking back...and therefore it kinda was a "phase", as it did pass eventually. But even then...what's wrong with a "phase"? Obviously it's part of growth! Growing is generally a positive thing. Just don't let the naysayers pull you down. Don't conform. Do you! That's what you were born to do and nobody can do so any better than you can!
I'll fill you in on things here... but not today, it's too in my face and I really don't want to talk about it too... (been having to relay it to "bestie" IRL and retelling it makes me even more tired and perhaps a bit negative at times. Things are actually supposed to take a bit of a turn today. *crosses fingers and prays* Also in the next two weeks we have some "big" events. Both require some travel, which as a photographer I am excited for...but exhausted already at the thought of it all! Anyway, ... HUGs!! heart
Welcome back! Things have been a bit chaotic around here in real life for awhile now. Hopefully things will head back to a more "normal" state before long. It's wearing me out! The heat doesn't help much either! Otherwise things are pretty much okay... so what's new in your world? xd
Oh, it's called "William the Playwright" ... I won't know until I go to the hospital...usually something has to be done which is why I am avoiding it. I had a "heart cath" in February ...pretty unexpectedly (it's a type of surgery, but they don't have to rip your chest open (which I had done over 10 years ago), but it still really really sux! At least the heal time and recuperation are so much faster, but pretty much all medical procedures mess with my head now! The thing about a heart cath is they are in your heart... you can see it on the screen and all... yes, see it, because you are awake and that's where it gets too weird for me!! At first it was kinda cool... kinda, but over time it just messes with your head. I have had like 6 or 7 of them (maybe more... the most I think I had done in 1 year was 3!! I'll keep you posted.
Well, I have a heart condition...apparently genetic, but I was the 1st of my family to know. I am also a type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetic, and then with all of the stress everything is just out of whack... I am trying to hold it all together, but if I do go, I will take my laptop!! Don't worry too much... anyway, just wrapping it up here... think I'll change my avi too...and then I am going to nap before Ryan gets home (or try to).
BIG HUGs!! emotion_bigheartemotion_bigheart
Just really tired lately, probably a little too much stress. Just trying to stay out of the hospital if I can avoid it!! Hope all is well with you too... Have a Good Week at Scholl. I will probably pop over here and leave a hug or something, but you just concentrate on what you need to do and we'll catch up next weekend!! HUGs!!
