A phone-camera diary.
My dual topsy-turvy gemini personality has me wanting to hermit in my apartment, all the while floating from show to party on the wave of special personalities that I’m graced with as friends.. I do feel like the grumpy homebody has been winning a lot more than it used to, but upon emptying my phone’s data in a (probably not) more secure place, like my computer, I realized this year has still had its share of magic, epic moments.
So I present to you, a year in photos.

The year is not quite over and there’s plenty that didn’t make it here, but seeing all these little pixelated square memories reminds me that I live a pretty magic life, if I have a resolution for next year, its to keep being me, and to be better at it, to be present more, to make more, to watch less stupid shows instead when I should be deciphering my sewing machines, to talk instead of being shy, to dance even if no one else is. More photobooth pictures, more airport bookstores, more Alamo milkshakes, more cartoons in bed with cats, lover and maybe eat breakfast sometimes.
