I haven't uploaded for 3 weeks. I've lost myself in the whirl of life and commercial work to the point where I didn't give myself time to photograph self portraits, which in the end is just a red flag telling me that something is wrong. At first I didn't care so much about keeping up with the uploads because I thought in my head "I don't have many contacts that really care about my work or care to know me, so what does it matter?" which is another red flag for me, because no matter what I always tend to tell myself that there are people out there that care and want to see my photographs.
I feel like I haven't let enough people in, that none of you know me and I want that to change.
My name is Melissa and I am an 18 year old girl from the suburbs of Ohio. I dare and I challenge. I have a cat named Milo and my hair is never a normal color. I have a deep passion for metal and pop punk music. I am in love with my best friend and he will never know. My heart gets bigger every single day. Photographing and filming is the gateway to the entirety of myself. It holds ever fiber, muscle and bone close together inside of me and without it I would simply fall to pieces. I am always inspired. And i'm finishing this project even if it kills me.
If you made it through all of that word vomit, good for you. Here's a cookie.
