Print Giveaway

Hooray! Another giveaway! Over on flickr I had been hosting a print exchange to get a bunch of inspiring photos for a photo wall in my new dorm room, so I decided to host a giveaway on here. It's pretty simple. The winner will be chosen randomly and will receive two prints of my photography.

All you have to do is:
1. Be a follower of Introvert's Introduction.
2. Head over to my flickr and post the link to the two photos you would like in the comments below (don't worry, you can change your mind if you win).
3. Leave your name and a fun fact about yourself. :)

And that's all! I'm also hosting a giveaway on my facebook page, so if you want more opportunities to win (aka one winner from the blog and one winner from flickr), check out how to enter over there!

Giveaway ends August 16th, 2012 @ 11:59pm Alaska time.

Good luck!

don't go too far

day 214

Sometimes I wish I could be God, only for the fact that I then would be able to see a person's entire past, all of their thoughts and feelings and struggles and dreams. It's a horrible feeling to know that no one in the entire world will ever know every single thing about you, every little word that marked you. Even if you spend your entire life with someone, you still will never know all the stories from their childhood; and even more intimately, how they felt and their thoughts during those stories.

Sorry this photo is so late, I have spent the wee hours of the evening working on a project that I can't wait to share with you guys, and I couldn't bear to leave it unfinished for the time being just in the name of a good night's rest. I'm a teenager, I'm allowed to make dumb decisions like that (oh just listen to me, I'm such a rebellious person, sewing at two in the morning). The only other thing of consequence that occurred today was me babysitting my kids again, but today they were less than perfect so I don't have too many fun stories to share. Except the neighbor kid decided to put a little table and chairs under the trampoline and set up a portable dvd player to watch Rolie Polie Olie. (Blast from the past for me.) Of course it was pouring down rain (and by pouring I totally mean a little more than a sprinkle) and a trampoline isn't the best cover from the rain. The kids' mom said we couldn't watch a movie today, but they managed to do so anyways, thanks to the makeshift outdoor theater. But don't worry, we still got ready for bed in time.

As for this photo, I basically put in zero effort. The rain made me avoid going outdoors (though I usually don't let it stop me). This is the first photo in the 365 project that hasn't been expanded in a while, but I am quite alright with that.

Hope you had a lovely Wednesday.

Goodbye July; Hello August

For the next twenty three days, I'm going to be an emotional wreck. In twenty three days, I'll say "see you soon" to my boyfriend, hug my siblings for the last time, and hop on an airplane with my parents to go to college. On the one hand, I'm ready to go now and I am unbelievably excited to go. But on the other hand, it's going to be the hardest thing in the world parting ways with my family and Matt. Gosh, I'm crying right now just thinking about it ...

So onto a happier note, here are some of my favorite posts from the month. You can click on the photo to view the post.

Hope you had a wonderful July, and may August be even better!

save your echo for me

day 213

I spent most of the day watching the Olympics and planning future blog posts for the month of August. It's going to be a busy, exciting month.
