Portrait of a Legend. @dave.labelle and I met about a year ago. I had to interview a key figure at Kent State University for my writing class. From that interview on, Dave has changed the way I take photos and interact with people. It was a pleasure catching up with you. We missed you while you were away in Florence. I'm looking forward to learning more from you and creating lasting work this coming year. Welcome home, Dave! (June 22, 2017)
Omg these two... She said, "I wasn't ready" Hahaa 😍 This *SO* makes me miss my giant, doofus, science nerd boyfriend 💗 LoL We used to #ArmWrestle all the time and of course he always won 😁 We would #ThumbWrestle too but I could never quit laughing to even give it an honest go because I am 5'2" and he was 6'4" so his hand COMPLETELY covered mine and it was just so ridiculous. 🤣 When we'd "arm wrestle" he'd have to extend his arm out almost like a handshake because his forearm was so much longer than mine. RIDICULOUS. But so funny 🤡 I could ALWAYS win at #RockPaperScissors though. A lot of people don't realize this but rock-paper-scissors is all mental strategy and he had too many tells (no poker face & had tics that would indicate his train of thought). He really sucked at poker too but I'd humor him at that like he'd humor me at #ArmWrestling ❤

This cute little ring came in my Summer @causebox. So pretty and perfect for beach days. And for every item sold, @nashellejewelry donates a meal for those in need. ⠀
Sometimes you have to take a step back and reflect on the now. Use your space to think clearly and shift your body in tune to universe's most outstanding compositions. Tune in and adjust your frequency to the conscious loving vibrations and steer your spaceship clear of negativity and nonsensical chords. Peace and Love is everything. And everything is worth living for. 🕊️
"I am a born helper. I really do love this world. I want to humanize everyone. I do not want to see people as objects. I dream of being influential. I don’t believe in making more money. But, I want to be powerful in a way that I can make a positive impact on people. I am not sure how I will do that. But it’s something that I admire from the influential people. I am more interested in environmental design and hoping to get a Master’s in it. Especially now many don’t feel that environment is an essential thing to take care of.
I think I am very sensitive towards the world and the people. When the terrorist attacks happened in Europe and other parts of the world, I couldn’t stop myself reading about the incidents. I was so sad about the people who were killed and for their friends and family. I kept replaying it in my mind If I were there, experiencing the pain and fear. It was exhausting. I have so many emotions when it comes to the world.
My parents have always been great influencers in my town. My mom is a very hard worker. She volunteers for the events and she has started a foundation for children to help them navigate media to avoid the negative side of it.
My dad is a very successful businessman. He is also very generous and giving. He is a humble person. I admire that about him. He started a foundation in Mexico 10 years ago. The foundation is called as ‘Escalera’ which acts as a ladder for the indigenous children to achieve their dreams and goals through education and learning. The concept of this foundation is to give them education, so they go up, higher and higher, as they gain more knowledge, gradually more opportunities will open up to them. Ever since I was very young, I’ve been going down to help them with everything. My dad’s foundation shaped me a lot since then. It helped me to put myself in other’s shoes. I am a professional interior designer now. I hope, I will be able to make the most comfortable interiors for the students, where they can feel safer." Are the kids happy? "Yes, they are extremely happy and grateful. They put on a big program for us every year. They organize a very big party with lots of music, dance, and food."
Real talk 🎟For so much of my life I felt like I never belonged anywhere like I didn't fit in with anyone or anything.
Social circles, schools, dance classes, family functions, romantic relationships, shared housing arrangements, out clubbing, even my own bloody birthday parties ❕‼️❕
Now I realise that I fit in absolutely everywhere because I belong to myself.
Self worth, self love and self confidence. Some people are born with it, some people lose it along the way and some people never had it to begin with. What ever the case, make sure you got some and hold onto it because this is 🔑 to finding true happiness.
