Such a bore.

237/365.

 

This is more of an "enormous thank you" post than anything. I try to express my gratitude for the continued support as often as I receive it, but I do have to take the time now to just say a humongous word of thanks. I've received so many wonderful opportunities because of you all.

 

Today, I was featured in La Repubblica, which, I've been told, is the #1 newspaper in Italy. Today alone, I've received over 125,000 views on my photos and 500 new 'followers'. That's absolutely insane. I still cannot believe it. To all my new Italian friends adding me on Facebook: don't be angry with me if I don't accept the request; it's not that I don't want you in my social network.. It's just that I have a hard enough time deciphering the language of my redneck classmates, much less Italian. Aahah.

 

But seriously, thank you, everyone, especially those buying prints; I've sold almost $700, and that puts me so much closer to my new camera. It's all very exciting and overwhelming.
