welcome, 2015

Happy New Year!

I can't believe this was the last day of 2014! It was a crazy year. It was tough at times, but I also had some great experiences; for example, this summer was probably the best two months of my life. School sucked for the most part, and I probably became more cynical than I already was, but I did learn from it all, so I can even say I'm glad everything happened the way it did. After all, I grew a lot as a person, and I'm happy and confortable with who I am today, which is very important to me. I'm ready for 2015! I have some great ideas for this new year and I'm very excited about them! Thank you 2014 for sucking and being great at the same time! Happy new year y'all!

summer 2013

Second post today! Wow.

I've been wanting to share the pictures I took when I was in a photography summer camp in New York (about a year and a half ago) for a long time. I think it's nice to compare these pictures to the ones I take now. Before this summer camp, I had absolutely no idea about photography, so I really did learn a lot in those two weeks. 











"winter" sky?

These last couple of weeks have been nice. I've learnt a lot about myself and other people.

I didn't post anything in a while because I was busy studying for final exams and then I came here to Orlando with my family (it's kind of like a holiday tradition we have, I guess). 



These are some pictures I took in Islands of Adventure with my iPhone. If you like them you can check out my VSCO grid (that's what you call it, right?): http://mariavs.vsco.co

welcome, ghosts





I was planning on posting OOTDs for everyday I was in Washington, but that didn't end up happening, obviously. The only pictures I have are these ones from the last day I was there. I absolutely loved wearing this coat from Bershka, it's too bad I can't wear it in Colombia.

black and white

I have some physics problems to do for homework, but I don't even understand what is going on in that class so I figured I would post something on my blog rather than stare at a blank piece of paper and wait for inspiration to strike. I'm having one of those days when you just feel like everything sucks. I'm feeling like I suck too, which is funny because I usually feel like everybody around me is the source of all evil, and that I'm 2 cool 4 them. I can be egocentric at times. I've been really stressed out lately, even more than what I usually am. I can manage stress pretty well because that's just how I go through life (it's so much fun). It's getting harder lately because there's too much going on around me, and I feel like my head is going to explode. Just thought I should let this out. 

I don't have any cool, inspiring pictures I can add that fit my mood. So I thought I'll just share with y'all (heh) what I wore on Sunday to watch Magic in the Moonlight (it took a while to be released in Colombia, I know).

i get so lonely










Screenshots of Russian Red's relatively new music video for the song "Michael P". I'm really obsessed with this song right now. It makes my feel things I kind of don't want to feel. The whole album just speaks to me, and it's not because I can relate to any of her love or relationship experiences but because the vibe is so nostalgic. I had never really "lived" in the past until now. I'm more of a person who lives in the future, always daydreaming and not really actively being part of the present. A person who is very close to me once told me that he thinks I live in the future because I'm optimistic and because my future is full of possibilities and wonders. He said it seemed to him that I learned to appreciate the present while I was in New York this summer. I guess he was right. But now I'm living in a mixture of that past where I lived in the present, and the future. This album, and especially this particular song, brings back people from that past in a future atmosphere.










These are some other pictures that fit my mood.
