    I just found out that I have been accepted at the glasgow school of art! I am really chuffed! I really didn't think I was going to get in. At my interview they asked me what I disliked about the contemporary art world and I went on a 10-minute rant about Damien Hirst's stuff. But I got in!! I need 2Cs in my A levels to claim my place, and 1E in any subject if I choose to go to Leeds uni. I'm deffering my entry there for a year incase America goes tits up, its always useful to have a plan B.

    I feel great! I found another hate website last night, but instead of feeling sorry for myself, I am not going to let it get to me. Bullying is something I've experienced since I started school, and I've noticed that it's even worse on the internet. Anyone who gets hate mail and anyone who gets bullied online I feel for, its surprising how many people do. If I put myself out there like I do then I have no right to complain when it backfires on me, but I really do feel for people who are just minding their own business and they get bombarded with abuse.

    But at the end of the day, I've always found that the only way to deal with the negativity that is just a part of life is to try really hard just to be a good person and be as kind, happy and friendly as you can. Because then when you do get abused you can at least say to yourself that you're trying.

    A funny video someone sent me to cheer me up :)

    What are your views on hate mail and internet abuse flickrites? Have any of you had to deal with it?

      that moment when I see that this is a cover to a book called "Hold Still" I was looking at it like, this looks familiar.. then it dawned on me that it was you! I really love this shot, it's beyond beautiful in a simply complex way.

      Congratulations and well done. Truly inspiring.
      Sorry about the bullying. I would guess that perhaps its jealousy?

      I was in a book store with my wife in New Hope, Pa. and saw this image on the cover of a book. I thought I Fav'ed it on Flicker a while back.....I was right! It's probably been awhile since the cover, but a belated congrats! This image is so magical.

      I love all these photos! Something in them really resonates with me. In this photo it shows the actual "FEELINGS" the person is having. Such an incredible gift to capture! Beautiful!
